WIW: Alluring Ankles & Spring White

On my phone so can't link to Angie's blog posts.

Today's Casual Friday look started with my Jessica Simpson recently hacked off cropped jeans with raw edge. Love this trend! I then added my new-to-me thrifted Olsen Europe white tiger tee - fabulous cotton linen blend perfect for the warm months. I semi tucked the tee to show a hint of my Danier cognac leather belt (moment of silence to mourn the loss of Danier) and tied in that hint of rich brown with my newly thrifted Italian leather Gladiator-style tie block heel sandals. I have no idea of the brand as its worn off but on the bottom of the sole you can read Made in Italy and some numbers - so will have to investigate when I have time. I finished off the outfit with my Reitmans navy blazer as my corporate nod for the office and added my citron handbag and red specs to finish things off. Oh...and white watch to add more white to the outfit.

Would appreciate all and any feedback - thanks for looking :)

    YLF as always, Shannon. Your whole outfit is so well pulled together, and I love the textures and interest points--sleek watch, lace tee, and those shoes are fab. So nice to see your gorgeous smile on my rainy Friday morning.

    I love your Casual Friday outfit. The tiger tee is fabulous and looks perfect paired with the blazer and jeans. You did a nice hacking job on the Jessica Simpson jeans -- good length. The new sandals are gorgeous. You must have some great thrift shops up your way as you have some amazing finds.

    Your thrifting magic is at it again! Fab sandals! I love the entire outfit. Great tee as well! 

  • Jaime replied 8 years ago

    So glad to see your outfits again. Love this and those sandals are a fantastic find. I'm also enjoying the cut off jeans look!

  • Elizabeth P replied 8 years ago

    Also very happy to see you posting again.  Great outfit!  Once again, classic (jeans and a tee) yet modernized (cropped jeans, semitucked tee, shoe choice...)

    I love the chartreuse purple combination!
    It would be nice to maintain that bright pop up colour when you leave thr bag off. I would suggest a bracelet or brooche.

    Those jeans look great on you! Always in awe of thrifting superstars.

  • Sara L. replied 8 years ago

    Nice!  Those are great sandals!  I also love your watch - both the color and the design are modern and interesting.

    I'm really happy to see your outfit posts again Shannon  - you are such a vision of polish and confidence and pull your pieces together so well. Cute sandals  and t - I don't know how and where you find such nice things while thrifting...but you always do! 

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    Gorgeous ankles, fun shoes, and another super cute outfit. Happy that the weather has warmed up your side.

    That tiger tee is a real find --- it's a "novelty graphic" that is still elegant.  The whole outfit is stellar.  I know how your feet demanded some changes in footwear, but you're still managing to use footwear to kick up your look.  Blocked heeled gladiators are a great choice, and the heel height is perfect!  Most of the shoes in this style are either flat or 4"!

    (Love the pop of white on your wrist, too)

    Those sandals are a great find! Very nice polished look.

    Oh, this is super! Lovely colours. The chartreuse bag is unexpected and fab with it and what great sandals those are. YLF!

  • rachylou replied 8 years ago

    The jacket is incredible. Good shoes and bracelet watch too!

  • citygirldc replied 8 years ago

    Love ever single piece on you!! The watch is very cool.

  • amiable replied 8 years ago

    Love the color combo and the way you wear them all together so well!  YLF!

  • carter replied 8 years ago

    This is really a perfect outfit, Shannon. So pulled together, yet seemingly effortless.

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    Those sandals are an incredible find; block heel, gladiator, and little tie -- can't ask for much more on-trend! Cool watch, too. Hacked jeans look good. Great casual friday look, Shannon.

  • Eliza replied 8 years ago

    Love it head to toe. Chic casual!. Bag is great with the darker pieces.

  • Debbie replied 8 years ago

    You look chic as always! I love those shoes.

  • deb replied 8 years ago

    Great look, Shannon!

  • SarahTheWhite replied 8 years ago

    I love everything about this, and especially love the color scheme. You look fantastic!

    On a totally unrelated note, I have the EXACT same kitchen cabinets (with different hardware). :-)
