WIW: Black & White Simplicity

It doesn't get more simple than this. 

It's cool and rainy today so I started my outfit with this EF hemp blend white v-neck pullover. I adore its drapey, almost misshapen, feel and look. Of course I have to wear a white cami underneath but today chose a full blown white tank top for a layering effect.

I then paired that with my black slightly slouchy trousers and my black heeled sandals. 

To finish off the outfit, I chose my black leather handbag and put on the silver necklace that hubby had made for me for Christmas (by the same guy who made my 50th birthday necklace). This is a silver rendition of the Canadian maple tree that grew outside my bedroom window of my childhood home. My hubby took a picture of the tree that I have and had it made. Very special.

So what do you think of today's outfit? Simple good or simple boring? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

BTW these very inexpensive slouchy trousers have got me thinking seriously of buying a better brand (with a slightly longer hemline) for fall. Any suggestions?

Pullover: Eileen Fisher
Tank & trousers: Ricki's
Sandals: Clarks
Handbag: Danier Leather

    Each word in the subject made me impatient to check the photos asap. I love everything about this outfit and I think the necklace is a magical finishing touch. 

    Simple is not the same as boring. Nor can an outfit with so much thought behind it ever be boring.

    You have a fantastic Danier bag collection Shannon! I love a well done simple black and white look and this is a great one!

    Yes, I agree with Shevia, a simple black and white look done well is fab. I do love your necklace. How beautiful.

    I agree with Ornella... simple, not boring at all. 

    Great necklace!

    You asked if this outfit is 'simple boring', Bah humbug!
    It's simply super, stupendous, standout, star quality. That's Shannon! :) And that goes for everything I've ever seen you wear.

    Wonderful outfit, and the necklace is so perfect.  I didn't know that could be done, but I'm going to keep it in mind as a gift idea now to give.

    I love the texture of the sweater close up. That tree necklace is wonderful. You have a very thoughtful hubby.
