WIW: My Triple Play

I'm mixing three patterns today - before YLF I would never wear more than one. Angie - what are you doing to me??? (lol)

Denim Day at work so started the day with my jeans. My faded flares had to be re-thrifted as the first day I wore them they stretched out so bad they literally would not stay on. I found these jeans as a substitute for now although they are really more of a bootcut than a flare, but they fit beautiful and hubby likes the rear view!

I then added a blue/white pinstripe button down shirt with white cuff and collar (pattern 1), my new Streets Ahead animal print belt (pattern 2), my snakeskin handbag (pattern 3) and for footwear, my taupe peep toe booties. For jewelry, I'm wearing my gold watch and my newly thrifted gold ring.

In looking at the pics, I'm not sure the handbag works with this but it's too late to change it now. What do you think? Colours, patterns and proportions work ok? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Gain says "good morning"!

Shirt: thrifted (no label)
Jeans: thrifted (no label)
Belt: Streets Ahead (Angie pick)
Shoes: Boutique 9
Watch and ring: thrifted

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Tres chic Shannon. I think the bag is fine and it ties in with the light colour of the shoes:). And clearly you love the bag so wear it as often as you like:).

    Laughing at k Can. I feel the same about that shirt! It's so fab! Love the whole outfit, and to my eye, the bag works with it very well.

    Another great outfit, Shannon!
    Those jeans look terrific and flattering on you, the shirt is a superstar, and your accessories are just as cool as can be. Love it!

    P.S. The bag goes fine with this outfit!

    Everything looks great here - love the shirt with those jeans and the bag/shoes work very nice with it all.

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    I LOVE that shirt. I want it. You look sensational, Shannon! Love you in ink blue too. And snake skin is a neutral.

    If you're prepared to mix your patterns, you have many more outfits at your disposal. I take full responsibility :)

  • BethL replied 8 years ago

    Everything looks great, Shannon. Like everyone else, I love your shirt (and also your belt)! I think your bag goes beautifully, but Angie has already weighed in on that!

    That shirt is TDF! You look so joyful in these pics Shannon - it's a pleasure to see them.

    Well played.

  • Joy replied 8 years ago

    Love the shirt and the whole outfit. One of your best!

  • JR replied 8 years ago

    That is pattern-mixing I can live with. Doesn't hurt my eyes at all.

    I think the bag works just fine too. All in all, a classy casual outfit. You rocked it.

  • Sveta replied 8 years ago

    Shannon, my goodness, you are really on the roll lately! I would wear this in a heartbeat!
    It looks like this new bag became the favorite, I think I saw it at least several times every week now...

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    It's funny how you all love the shirt 'cause I think I paid about $5 for it in the thrift shop at least 3-4 years ago. I wonder what the CPW is by now???

    Sveta - this bag is definitely one of my favourites. It seems to work with almost everything in my wardrobe.
