WIW: Double Animal

Today at work I have a fair bit of running around to do so comfort and no "fuss factor" were first and foremost in choosing today's outfit.

I started out with my dark olive slim cargo pants - a major staple in my wardrobe now. I then added my black and cream animal print v-neck knit tunic. Rather than semi tuck, I decided today to wear it untucked. Yes, it means my leg line is shorter but it means I won't have the possibility of the semi tucked becoming untucked while running around. 

I then chose my python print booties for footwear - I like how the cream in the booties picks up the cream in the tunic. 

Finally, I finished off the outfit with my citron handbag, red specs, taupe/silver wrap watch and silver wedding band.

So what are your thoughts on this outfit ladies? Does it all work together? Proportions ok? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Tunic: Cleo Petite
Pants: Ricki's
Boots: Sam Edelman
Watch: Fossil (eBay)
Handbag: Sergio Ferreti

    Great outfit - I love how that purse gives so many of your outfits a pop of color and a I must say a very stylish "running around" outfit.

    The olive looks great with the tunic! I like the cream booties, but of course you could try it with darker booties to lengthen your legs on no-tuck days. (Could but no need in my book.)

    Nice execution of merging function, fashion and fun.

    Lovely! I like how the booties pick up on the lighter shades in your top and the bag is like  a ray of sun shine.

    I like it, Shannon! The length on your tunic is short enough I think that the leg line isn't seriously compromised.

    Love those cargos --- there a natural for mixing with animal prints.  You look ready to take on the day in style!

    Ditto on loving those cargos!

    Love these olive cargos! Plenty of interest texture and color wise, a lovely running errends outfit!

    Fun cargo's!  I've been hunting for a pair that fits my pear shape for a few seasons now.  And the yellow bag is the perfect pop of color to this look.

    Thanks for your feedback ladies - Shevia, I totally agree that darker booties would lengthen my leg line. For some reason, I'm feeling "tall" today even with the high contrast booties - lol!

    Cargo pants have become a wardrobe staple for me. These very inexpensive pants have turned out to be a major workhorse item and I now cannot imagine my closet without a pair. And I'm surprised at how dark olive can work with my wardrobe - talk about a neutral color I hadn't even considered before!

    Those have been great pants on you, food for thought for myself as I consider winter trousers....
    Love the accessorising here - great colours and textures.

    I really love that tunic on you! And it looks terrific with the boots.

  • Karie replied 3 years ago

    I usually don't care for more than one animal per outfit, but this really does look fantastic. I think since the booties are a bit more subtle and the top is bold, this works really well. I love the touch of citron too.

    I love the olive and citron yellow color scheme.  Plus the dual animals make it super fun!  I would stop you in the ladies room to discuss were we strangers.
