WIW: Inspired by Ceit & Diana

I really like how Ceit paired the CM floral moto with purple earlier in the week and how Diana has been rocking her bootleg jeans lately - so decided to copy both of them!

I started the outfit with these old jeans of mine - they are not true bootcut (those are on my shopping list now) and are more of a trouser jean but they are the closest I have and not only do they fit again, they are bordering on too big!

I then added a dark purple tank and topped that with the floral moto. Ceit is right - the purple seems to really bring out the colours and tones in the jacket.

I finished off the outfit with my dark blue/purple suede booties and my light cream handbag.

So what do you think? A good combination for Friday Denim Day at work? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Jacket: Club Monaco
Tank: Gap
Jeans: Reitmans
Boots: Aerosole
Handbag: Danier Leather

    Your observations paid off well with this great styling. I really like the jacket with purple.

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    Fabulous styling, and I love a YLF copy!! The jeans look terrific, Shannon. Now you've got fluid fit going on in the jeans department. A perfect fit for trouser jeans, IMO.

    Yes, purple works beautifully with this floral moto. Great Friday look!

  • Nicole D replied 4 years ago

    Girl, you look like you grew about 3 inches taller!  Leg line super long!   Love the purple and the booties are just delicious.  Don't save this for casual Fridays!

    Gorgeous, long and lean!

  • Janet replied 4 years ago

    Love it! One of my favorite looks on you, ever. Wear the heck out of those jeans!

  • Sara L. replied 4 years ago

    You look great! I'm imagining the colors because for some reason on my moniter it all looks black :( The proportions and silhouettes work beautifully to my eye even without seeing any color definition.

  • Diana replied 4 years ago

    Lovely outfit, Shannon!  I love the moody floral, and you're right that it pairs beautifully with deep purple.  And I'm happy to have inspired you to pull out these jeans because they look amazing on you!

  • Liz A. replied 4 years ago

    You know what I was just realizing, Shannon... You always seem to dress in flattering colors. What season do you fit into? Are there colors you avoid?

  • Carole replied 4 years ago

    YLF, as always. Great flattering outfit.

  • Beth Ann replied 4 years ago

    Extremely flattering, relaxed, and polished.  I'm so glad you kept that jacket!

    And, drat it, I'm again perusing the internet for dark blue footwear -- your fabulous Aerosoles are the perfect shade -- brighter than Navy, deeper than cobalt. 

  • kellygirl replied 4 years ago

    Terrific! You look so sleek, Shannon! Love it. I confess to have finally tried on that jacket at CM after seeing it on you. I much prefer it on you and Ceit that I did on me. 

  • shedev replied 4 years ago

    Really nice look, those are cute shoes.

  • Peri replied 4 years ago

    Love....of course! The jacket looks so great on you.

  • catgirl replied 4 years ago

    WOOT!  Am loving the black and white florals here.

  • Debra replied 4 years ago

    Love that jacket and gorgeous with the purple.
    Very stylish outfit that has been filed under super and inspirational :)

  • Deborah replied 4 years ago

    Beautiful combination. I find the purple and dark blue booties to be a very appealing combination. I love this jacket and it looks great with these particular jeans. Lovely.

  • Day Vies replied 4 years ago

    I love the effect of the floral moto over the black and the subtle touch of the blue bootie with the graphic contrast of the white purse is divine. This is a lovely interpretation Killer worthy!
