WIW: Lotsa white after Labour Day (ETA change in footwear pic)

Angie has convinced many Fabbers that white after Labour Day is not a sin. So I'm wearing white jeans today and am proud of it!

I've paired my sized up skinnies (which are now very loose at the waist - thank goodness for belts!) with my newly thrifted white and navy striped boat neck pull over. I love that the cuffs and bottom band are teal green - it's something a little unexpected. I am also liking the boat neck - for someone with quite narrow and sloping shoulders, I find this horizontal type neckline gives my shoulders a bit more visual width. For footwear I chose my cream laser cut oxfords and am using my cobalt/cream handbag that I also used yesterday. Jewelry is my gold watch and wedding band.

How does this look for a September day? My one concern is whether or not the shoes are too summery? I also tried the outfit with my beige suede Toms wedge booties and liked that look as well.

As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Jeans: Jessica Simpson
Sweater: Cleo Petite (thrifted)
Shoes: Dolce Vita
Handbag: Danier Leather
Watch: thrifted

So I did end up changing my light footwear to my beige suede Toms before I left the house and I feel more "fall-ish" as a result. I felt with the cream oxfords that the whole outfit was a bit too light. The Toms feel more grounded. Kristin took a quick pic in the office - what do you think?

    I think I would have liked to see a darker shoe with this, simply because the stripes are so crisp and bold against the white. The white looks really fresh!

    Ceit, you are on a roll with your observations! I looked again in the mirror and wasn't feeling the cream oxfords. Have switched to my beige Toms and it looks much better to my eye - like the Toms "ground" the outfit and give it a more fall vibe.

    I think it looks great. Very sporty chic! That purse is certainly earning its keep! It IS fab!

    I like the idea of this with your Toms, oh white jeans wearing twin! (I have mine on today, too. With my Munro burgundy booties!)

    I love sized up skinnies. Nobody ever said you had to wear skinny jeans vacuum-sealed to your body. The sweater is divine I love the crisp color palette and white shoes. Nautical pretty!
