WIW: Black & Olive


Today's outfit started with my olive cargo pants - this time rolled to look more like a slim BF. I love how they work with my black high vamp sandals this way. And because of the high vamp on the sandals, I don't feel this shortens my leg line at all.

I added to the cargos and sandals a simple black tank, fully tucked with a black leather belt. I then topped that with my black suit jacket, with sleeves rolled and scrunched. I like how the rolled cuffs of the cargos and the rolled cuffs of the jacket mimic each other.

I chose my black patent leather slim clutch for my handbag to add a bit of sleekness to the outfit and for jewelry, went with my gold wedding band and a gold mesh bangle. Specs are my black/white pair. Love how the mesh of the bangle works with the laser cut outs in the sandals.

I'm thrilled with how this turned out. What do you think? Does it all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Blazer: Nygard

    Love this, Shannon! My heart still goes pitter patter for a casual pant with a sharp jacket. I can't help it. It's just the way I'm made. Also, those sandals are some of the most flattering shoes on you, ever! Love them.

    Wow! Fabulous proportions and the black and olive is a really sophisticated combination. This is so sleek and elegant with a very nice dose of modern.

    Looks good!  I love black and olive together.  I think I'm going to copy this soon.

    Thanks ladies :)

    Suz - these sandals have been a fantastic replacement for my foot killing black Fugitives. In fact, I think I like them better than the Fugitives.

    All my thumbs are up!  The colors are deep and rich and the overall effect is polished, but strong.  The choice of the cuff is perfect!

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    Killer Elegant. Look at that amazing clutch. I am wowed. xo

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    Angie - I have to brag a little about this clutch. It is from Danier Leather and I found it in Value Village in pristine condition for $2.99. I felt like I'd won the lottery and quickly snapped it up, feeling quite smug!

    I love this! Your outfits are always incredible, but this might be one of my favorites.

  • fuzzylogic replied 6 years ago

    Such a well put together outfit- the fi and proportions are perfect, and I love the olive/black pairing!

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    You truly are the Value Village Queen, Shannon. Wow. xo
