WIW: Ink & White

After seeing Angie's fabulous blog post about a business casual capsule in ink and white and then seeing Sveta's lovely outfit based on that capsule (http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....-and-white) I knew I had to wear it too! 

So today's outfit started with my white jeans to which I added my ink blue hi-lo hem pullover with little lurex "sparkle" threads. This is a very light weight knit so perfect for spring. I decided not to semi tuck the pullover for a change because I wanted the outfit to be very crisp and simple without even a belt showing. I added my python booties for footwear (just like Sveta)  and my large cream handbag. And then to top it off, my ink/indigo leather jacket. Unfortunately I will probably have to put my navy trench on over this when I head out the door since it's not quite warm enough for the leather jacket on its own.

So what do you think? I must say, I feel quite "snappy" in this ensemble and can't believe I have never paired ink and white together before. Thank you Angie and Sveta :)  As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

    The only part I don't like is that you still need a trench over that great jacket. I need to try to copy this!

    Between you and Sveta (and Angie) I am pretty sure I will be pulling out the white jeans today ... gorgeous, Shannon!

    This is fabulous, a natural pairing for you Shannon.

    Jacket twin!
    I also can't believe you have not paired navy with white before.  Shocked actually!  This is such a wonderful crisp Shannon-like outfit, very "snappy" :).

    I hope we see more of the pairing in the future!

    Such a lovely jacket, Shannon, and the whole outfit is extremely fresh and flattering!

    Nice!! Perfect outfit and I love how the boots add some pattern interest to the outfit :) .. And I think it looks fan without a belt because of the curved hem.

    Great outfit! I love navy blue, and all the various shades of dark blue, with white. So crisp and stylish! And those booties - once again you prove how versatile they are.

    Ooh Fun!  I love this combo!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 10 years ago

    Shevia - you'll be happy to know that I decided against the trench and went out with just the leather jacket. It's actually a gorgeous day here so felt like risking it!

    Janne - I can't believe I ever doubted that I would wear these booties! They have been total wardrobe workhorses for me.

    Thanks all :)

    Well, I do hope you'll be sporting this colour combo more often from now on, Shannon, because it looks exquisite on you. Stunning outfit from head to toe.

    Great look!

  • Sveta replied 10 years ago

    Lovely! And the credit totally goes to our fearless leader Angie! :-)
    I am also amazed that you have not paired navy and white before, Shanon. It may give some nautical vibe but I like it very much. I also covet your dark blue moto and now will copy you with my Gap moto as well (I hope you don't mind :-)

    I LOVE ink & white - this is so fab TS, you look fantastic.

  • Angie replied 10 years ago

    I love that ink sparkly top - especially with the white jeans. You look as fresh as a Spring tulip. xo

  • Gracie replied 10 years ago

    You look spring-fresh and fab – those white jeans fit you perfectly and the booties are the perfect complement. I does look very snappy and pulled together.
