Column of Grey & Pops of White

I have fallen completely in love with white - as tops, bottoms and accessories. Angie is (of course) completely right in how it can lighten up an outfit.

I've used white accessories today to lighten up an all grey outfit, another colour I love. I've taken my grey sized up skinnies and paired them with my grey Gap mesh sleeve sweater. Then I added my grey (with lime green soles) leather oxfords. Now for the pops of white - a wide leather belt, white watch and my light cream handbag. 

I originally had on my python booties but I've been waiting for it to be dry enough to break out these pretty little oxfords and today was the day.

What do you think? does it all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Sweater: Gap
Jeans: Jessica Simpson
Shoes: Rachel Roy
Handbag: Danier Leather
Watch & belt: thrifted

    pops of white look lovely, Shannon. I was wondering when you will break out your grey oxfords.

    I think it all works beautifully Shannon. Lovely soft greys. I'm thinking of adding more grey to my wardrobe too. I love it with white. YLF :)

    Looks excellent -- I love how the shoes and the sweater bookend. I need a white belt!

    Grey and white is lovely together. It totally works in your outfit, you look great! And it's good to see those oxfords.

    White belt is brilliant with this!

    Thanks, Shannon!  for helping me rid myself of horrible connotations with white belts -- a childhood trauma, really -- the memory of grown men with sideburns and baby blue (or in one case) lemon yellow leisure suits.

    Yes, white belts have been redeemed.  Whew!

    Oh......and this looks terrific.  Grey and white are terrific.

    The white really makes this outfit shine!  Love the belt!  So perfect!  And the greys soften up the white so it doesn't feel so stark.  Lovely outfit!
  • Angie replied 6 years ago
    The white makes all the difference here, taking the outfit from muted to brighter! White a magical that way.

    A super duper casual outfit that looks understated and very stylish, Shannon. xo

    You've really figured this out, Shannon. Way to go. You are an inspiration!
  • Sarah A replied 6 years ago
    Love the white and gray. Fun to see the oxfords out... sadly mine havent been worn as much lately with the frequent rain either then when its not raining it seems too hot.... Great watch!

    beth ann- your comments on the white belt was so what i was thinking... my grandfather always wore a white belt!
    but shannon, you have made it a fashion piece worthy of trying!

    I admit a white belt does bring back bad visuals of men in seersucker leisure suits while wearing socks in white sandals...hopefully, this is more modern - lol!
  • catgirl replied 6 years ago
    Okay, you are TOTALLY inspiring me to try a white belt.  I love this outfit so much I can't stand it - now I want sized up skinnies in that color! 

    I am imagining your citron clutch with this outfit for an alternative look.

    Love it - some white glasses? The citron clutch would look fab too.
  • MsMary replied 6 years ago
    Wow, love this!!
  • Debora replied 6 years ago

    Love how the white takes this beautiful outfit to another level! Thanks for sharing!

  • Karie replied 6 years ago
    Say what, you bought a white purse at the Danier store too? Is it new? It's beautiful!

    I love the look of gray with pops of white - I will have to try this myself!
  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago
    Definitely citron clutch with grey next time!

    Caro - not sure about white glasses...that would DEFINITELY be out of my comfort zone!

    Karie - this white purse was a Christmas gift from my hubby & mother-in-law. I absolutely LOVE it.

    Thanks everyone.  And for anyone looking for an incredibly comfortable completely flat oxford, I did a ton of walking today and these shoes were fantastic.
