WIW: Crazy Tee + Crazy Crops = Crazy Fun

I'm off work next week and it's casual Friday, so decided today was the day to have fun with my outfit. I started with the cropped pants that Wonder Woman re-vamped for me (shortening and tapering the legs) and then paired my crazy navy t-shirt with the giant flower on it. For footwear, I'm wearing my oh-so-comfy Sketcher sandals, and I'm using my camel handbag and wearing my white watch for accessories.

This outfit will certainly not be to everyone's taste but I feel happy in it. What do you think? Too "out there"? How are the proportions and colours? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

T-shirt: thrifted (no label)
Cropped pants: Dockers (thrifted)
Sandals: Sketchers (thrifted)
Watch: thrifted
Handbag: Mondani New York (thrifted)

Just realized my ENTIRE outfit is thrifted!

    I think it is a real casual fun, Shannon. My only suggestion would be a different handbag: I think the warm beige of the bag is not playing well with cool taupe tones in the crops and shoes.
    I really like those sandals for casual wear!
    Have a nice vacation- are you going somewhere?

    This is a fun outfit Shannon. I do like that top:). This is fun, creative and fashion forward in my humble opinion.

    You look playful and cute! I really like those crops and your purse and choice of footwear look great with. The top is fun!

    That's a LOT of fun! You know I love that T-shirt and those cropped pants, and now I have to gush about the Sketchers too, which are making me just a little jealous.

    You're always such an inspiration, Shannon, always ready to try something unusual and pushing the envelope. How will the folks at work react, I wonder? I bet they're just barely getting used to non-jeans Casual Fridays!

    I think this is a great outfit on you, fun and stylish at the same time. By the way you have cute feet!

    I completely agree about the handbag Sveta - I actually think my green handbag would have looked MUCH better. Unfortunately we're not going anywhere as my husband does not have the same vacation time this summer as I do (that happens every once in a while for us as we're both in health care) so I plan on playing in my garden, hanging with DS, sleeping in and watching chick flicks!

    Thanks Deborah, Meredith and Diane!

    Manidipa - I'm already getting some interesting "looks" at work - too funny!

    Happy Canada day, from a fellow Canadian

    If I saw you walking down the street in this outfit, I'd want to have tea and cake with you.

    Enough said :)

    LOVE the crops, Shannon.

  • jayne replied 8 years ago

    Oh that flower is too fun. Now you have me really inspired. I actually have some flower pins like this I have been too wimpy to wear. Guess I should consider it a challenge. Hmmmm. I will pack them in my suitcase for Monday morning.

    I love this Shannon! I never picked up on the fact that those crops are Dockers?!!! You make them look vintage-cool! I love the whole *dark on top, light on the bottom* vibe you have going on. And you definitely look like you have one foot out the door for your week off, lol. Fun!

  • rae replied 8 years ago

    I agree about the green bag, but I love the outfit - LOVE the shoes you chose with the crops. Very long-leggy.

    Have fun on your time off... maybe there will be some thrifting trips?? :)

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    Thanks for chiming in Abie,Kate, Jayne, Claire and Rae! I always appreciate your feedback.

    A - Happy Canada back at ya!

    Angie - I would have tea and cake with you anytime!

  • Sveta replied 8 years ago

    Your green bag would be PERFECT!
    Enjoy your time off, your garden, your DS, chick flicks - and especially sleepig in! :-)

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    Don't you hate it Sveta when you think of the perfect choice AFTER you've already left the house (lol)!

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    Super cute, you master thriftier, you! See, you CAN'T really give it up...the results are just so good for you!

    Enjoy your holiday!

  • Sarah A replied 8 years ago

    FUN! i think that pretty much says it all. enjoy your time off work :)

  • Kirti replied 8 years ago

    NOT crazy! I would wear this head to toe! :-)

  • CocoLion replied 8 years ago

    Those crops look so crazy good on you!!!

    The top is very social and fun. As in, it's an easy conversation piece and lets strangers have fun with you. In fact, all of your outfits say that about you Shannon. You are so approachable and promise to lighten everyone's day. I'll bet this is in your nature and I think you do a good job in bringing that out in your clothing choices.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    Thanks Suz, Sarah and Kirti!

    Denise - wow...thank you very much...what a lovely thing to say. I'm humbled.
