WIW: Black, white & green

Another cold day here in The 'Peg so wanted to wrap myself up in my green cashmere sweater. I've paired the sweater with my tweed front slouchy trousers. I've added for a belt a newly thrifted black/white houndstooth slim leather belt and then decided to further play up the black and white by adding my Doc Sara oxfords (MaryK is so right - you just smile when you put these babies on!) and my black/white leather handbag.

I'm comfortable, cozy and feel put together - how does it look to your eyes? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Sweater: Lord & Taylor
Trousers: Sears
Belt: thrifted
Shoes: Doc Martens
Handbag: Danier Leather (thrifted)

    That sweater was such a find for the late winter to early spring doldrums! I think this looks great, and the shoes are so fun.
  • Jjsloane replied 6 years ago
    What a great color sweater on you. I think this is a great look - the belt really anchors the slouchiness of the rest and the bag with the shoes ! Wow

    Oh, how fab! That green is lovely and the pants are divine on you.

    You are amazing, btw (((hugs))).

    Great outfit. :) I love to see that sweater, the color is fantastic (on you).
  • shevia replied 6 years ago
    I would say this is my favorite sweater and trousers on you but I am pretty sure there are others I love just as much (which is a lot). You look great!

    I love this shade of green with gray and white. The black provides a little bit of structure. Very nice.

    You look great Shannon and I'm not even a big fan of slouchy trousers but these look both comfortable and flattering on you. Love the houndstooth belt and the shoes/bag combo with this.

    I keep hoping another of these sweaters in my size and a pretty colour will pop up on The Bay's website but they've now reached the clearance section - if they do though, I'm definitely going to pounce.

    These trousers got me perusing Sears more often as well so I am finding more local stores with possibilities.

    Thanks for your comments ladies!

    You look sensational in this shad of green Shannon!  Love the outfit, especially how the accessories tie it all together.  I hope another color shows up at the store.

    You look terrific!  Love that shade of green on you, especially as we all wait impatiently for spring.  I hope you are able to find another!

    An 11 out of 10. Urban Minimalism suits you!

    Hope you're feeling calmer. You look it :)

    Really love this!  I wore a similar silhouette yesterday, slouchy leather pants and citron sweater with booties.  Comfortable and comforting on yet another cold winter day. :)

    I love the color of the green sweater.  It looks great on you!  I really like the how the light belt and shoes work with the darker pants.

    Ooo, cashmere. How lovely to be able to wear something so warm that also looks beautiful. Can we have a close-up of the belt sometime? It sounds like a fun new addition while you're waiting for spring to come. YLF!

    I'm smiling right along with you, Shannon!  YLF!

    Looking good, lady!  Love those pants, and the green is delish on you!
  • TraceyLiz65 replied 6 years ago
    Love the sweater color and the purse!
  • rachylou replied 6 years ago
    I need to go to Sears is what I think...
  • replied 6 years ago
    I love how your shoes and the bag play so well together in this outfit and the green sweater is such a great colour for you!
  • Tina.b replied 6 years ago
    Both the trousers and the sweater have a great shape and they pair together beautifully. I must try something like this myself. And the black and white accents are just the perfect finishing touch!
  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago
    Loving the choice of spring color with winter fabrication and a weighty, but bright shoe.
  • CocoLion replied 6 years ago
    Perfect combination of colors and shapes here!  One of my favorites of yours.  I love this happy green color.  The sweater, with its sweatshirt style, is modern as are the slouchy pants and oxfords.

    A subjective observation:  the bag, while the colors go great with the belt and shoes, feels a little ladylike for this outfit.  What about a clutch or crossbody or Hobo or backpack?  I hope you don't hate me for expressing a critical opinion.  :-)

    Cheerful and happy for a cold day!
  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago
    Denise - hate you???? Good grief no, you silly woman. I appreciate your observations and now I'm thinking next time I wear this combination I'll try it with either my slouchy lamb leather Christopher Kon bag or maybe my grey snakeskin clutch?

    Angie - "urban minimalism"...interesting. I need to ponder that a bit.

    Una - "comfortable and comforting" - exactly!

    Thanks everyone for your feedback and comments - always appreciated :)
