WIW: Morocco Boho

Today's outfit started with this newly thrifted Nicole Miller blouse. I love the soft shape and diagonal sleeves. But most of all, I love the pattern. It's got a bit of a Morocco vibe with the pattern and colours and then the drapey shape and style hints at boho. 

Because I want the blouse to be the star, I've paired it with a simple black pencil skirt (the bands on the sleeves, neckline and bottom of the blouse are black) and my nude peep toe high-vamp sandals.

Black patent clutch, gold watch and wedding band, long gold necklace and black/white specs finish off the outfit.

What do you think? As always, all comment/suggestions welcome.

Blouse: Nicole Miller (thrifted)
Skirt: Cleo Petite
Sandals: Steve Madden
Clutch: Danier Leather (thrifted)
Watch: thrifted

    I do love the pattern. Nice find! The sort of thing you can travel with and dress up or down.

    That is a really pretty pattern! I like how you kept everything else simple and polished.

    This is lovely on you, Shannon! Very flattering and yes, boho lite! :)

    Really gorgeous look with great styling. Love the black bag and skirt with the choice of nude shoes. And I want that shirt! I'm drooling over the pattern and colors.

    Oh, yes, I see the Morocco influence here and don't your shoes pick up on the colours in the top well. Lovely, YLF!

  • jackiec replied 4 years ago

    Love it. The Steve maddens are perfect here too.

  • torontogirl replied 4 years ago

    Fabulous! You really have an artistic eye for fashion.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 4 years ago

    Thanks ladies :)

    I've also worn this blouse with my dark wash slim jeans rolled with the Steve Madden peep toes and liked it that way for more casual.

    This outfit is really great on you. The open neckline is super flattering to your shoulders and throat and the sleeve length is great too. The colors are great. I just love this. It's streamlined and totally modern looking but lady like in the best possible way.
    This is my favorite of all the outfits I've ever seen you post. You look fantastic.

    This blouse reminds me of your BGBC one - not necessarily in colour or styling, but the vibe it gives and how versatile it can be.  Perfect with the Steve Maddens too.  Btw - Browns has a bunch of new versions of this shoe (Mimosa brand) in white, blue, perforated leather, etc etc .  Price point is considerably higher but the perforated white is pretty cool. Thought of you immediately when I spotted them the other day.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 4 years ago

    Isabel - wow...thank you so much :)

    Lisa - oh darn you! Now I've just gone and quickly looked at those peep toes on the Browns website. The white perforated is soooooo beyond perfect for me and they are even the lower heel like these ones. Will have to check these out and if as comfortable as my SM's, will be my white shoes for summer. Thank you...I think!

    Great find!  I like the way you've styled it here with the black skirt and peep toe booties.  I'm loving those booties and wondering why I ever thought they would be hard to style.  You seem to have no problems wearing them.

  • Elly replied 4 years ago

    I love this on you. That is a beautiful blouse-- suits your more relaxed, softer summer vibe. 

  • Nebraskim replied 4 years ago

    Grand slamming awesome! That blouse is a rock star.

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    Love the blouse and the way that you styled it. It's the kind of blouse that gives a summer outfit lots of style without needing a third piece because of the interesting pattern. Great find! How does Nicole Miller sizing run? Is this your regular size in fluid tops?

  • Transcona Shannon replied 4 years ago

    Joy - this is the first Nicole Miller piece I've tried on but yes, this one is my regular size for a fluid fit.

  • MTBGirl replied 4 years ago

    I love this outfit on you Shannon! The pattern, colors and fit are absolutely perfect!

  • Brooklyn replied 4 years ago

    Love the top, shoes, clutch. You look fab.

  • Sal replied 4 years ago

    This is a great look.  All the components work together brilliantly.

  • kerry replied 4 years ago

    Great find! Shannon, I have the black Mimosas from Browns Lisa's referring to and they are so comfy. The leather is like butter. Not sure about the perforated ones - they are gorgeous in real life but I haven't tried them on. One pair is $ enough :)

  • Karie replied 4 years ago

    Very flattering and what beautiful colors on you!

  • shevia replied 4 years ago

    Love the top on you Shannon - great find!

  • Beth Ann replied 4 years ago

    Beautiful combination, Shannon!  The pattern is rich and detailed, but the graphic nature of the print keeps it sleek and modern.  You look great!

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 4 years ago

    I love this and how the shoe color works with the colors in the print.

  • Firecracker replied 4 years ago

    Gorgeous! I love how you're wearing it. Great choices for a lovely work outfit. It will be a fun piece to dress down with jeans, too.

  • goldenpig replied 4 years ago

    Love the print on this and the bookending with the sandals. Would look great with jeans too!
