WIW: Grey, white & a pop of citron

I love seeing the WIW posts with the pops of white lately so today I wanted to copy that idea. I started my outfit with my slouchy black and tweed trousers. I added my white leather belt for my first bit of white. Then I added my grey mesh sleeve sweater with a semi tuck to show the belt. For footwear, I'm wearing my python booties which have bits of white in them. I then added my white watch for another bit of white. And finally, my purse today consists of a pretty little citron leather clutch from Gap. Such a cheery colour to add!

What do you think? Does it all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Sweater: Gap
Trousers: Sears (Jessica)
Belt: Danier Leather
Booties: Sam Edelman
Clutch: Gap

    And Shannon, we must have been psychically linked this morning -- you'll see when I post my WIW when I get to work!

    Fantastic! I LOVE this outfit and silhouette on you. The citron accent makes it look so modern and fresh. The pettys and the optic white are brilliant!
  • Angie replied 7 years ago


    And you knew that.

    Forgot the crash helmet :(
  • Sara L. replied 7 years ago
    I love the white belt and boots together.  Perfect! 
  • sarah replied 7 years ago
    Wow. I would have thought that the belt would break up the outfit too much, but instead it makes it so fresh, especially with the watch, shoes, and clutch. I have so much to learn!!!!!!!!! (but such good teachers)
  • Parsley replied 7 years ago
    Love it Shannon- you're brilliant to put that combo together!
    That citron clutch is the icing on the cake.

  • pil replied 7 years ago

    Simple and terrific! I really, really like this.
    I rushed in and out of a GAP store yesterday and it completely slipped my mind to look at the new YLF "it" sweater.

  • Sveta replied 7 years ago
    Nice to see"our" trousers in action once more!
    I think this is a greate rlaxed outfit with all the accents in the right places (citron clutch, white belt picking out, python booties) - well done!

  • Thistle replied 7 years ago
    Oh no, you made Angie faint without her crash helmet!!!

    So pretty, Shannon. I esepcially love the pop of citron!
  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago
    Thank you all :)

    Shout out to Anna, who suggested I buy a white belt the last time I wore these trousers. Thanks Anna!

    Oh no Angie...you ok? Where was your citron crash helmut?
  • Debora replied 7 years ago

    As fabulous as ever! I love the idea of inserting pops of white.

  • Tina replied 7 years ago

    Shannon, you have a real knack for knowing what fits you and what works for your body type and you style. You are a fabulous package deal, the clothes, the hair and best of all the effervescent (I'll have you know I actually spelled that without auto correct) personality!
    Can you tell I love your outfit?:-)

  • Sheila replied 7 years ago

    Yaya you done good! Love it, especially the clutch. Now I want one!!!

  • Raisin replied 7 years ago

    Oh my! I can't even think of what to say, it looks so great!

  • Joy replied 7 years ago

    Your pops of white and the citron bag really make the outfit sing.

  • Day Vies replied 7 years ago
    Love the clutch and SEs (pattern and color)... NICE. This is a great color palette and mix of textures. You make me want to play around with this in my closet and see what I come up with. Thanks for the inspiration! 
  • catgirl replied 7 years ago
    LOVE THIS!  That little bag is killing me. 
  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago
    Tina - my goodness, thank you so much. What a lovely thing to say :)

    Day Vies - go play away in your closet. Let me know what you come up with!

    Una - I thought at first this little bag was tooo little - but it held my car keys, office keys, small wallet, cell phone and lipstick. Perfect. They're on sale by the way...

    Thanks all!

  • Sarah A replied 7 years ago
    so fun! the drape of the sweater on the trousers is just lovely and the accessories vignette! LOVE, the color and textures and polished and sporty and..... glad Angie found her helmet, maybe she can lend it to me :) ... lest I plonk without a safeguard in place
  • Suz replied 7 years ago

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago
    Oh thank goodness Angie - I was quite worried about your pretty head.
  • ElleH replied 7 years ago
    WOW!! I just love this Shannon. 
  • Ingunn replied 7 years ago
    Shannon, I think this is one of your best lately - which says a lot! I love how the white pops brightens up and contrasts with the rest of the color scheme. Citron, grey and white is a wonderful combination, and the silhouette is SO modern. Bravo!
