WIW: Nothing too exciting

Today's outfit is nothing too exciting, but I like the proportions, the contrast and the fluidity mixed with structure.

I started the outfit with my new bootcut trousers and then added my cream/black dalmation print front wrap blouse with hi-low hemline. For footwear, I went with my black patent booties and my black handbag. Glasses and lips are red.

I also got my hair trimmed last night and we went with a razor around the sides and and made the front in a more pronounced asymmetrical style. I'm really happy with it.

I feel like a sense of freedom now that I'm figuring out my comfort level in terms of the fluidity and structure combination. A lightening bulb has gone off!

so what do you think? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Blouse: Dorothy Perkins petite
Trousers: Reitmans
Boots: Ara
Handbag: Danier Leather

    It may be 'just a blouse and pants' but it's far from simple because it's been 'Shannoned!' You look great. Love the 'do' too :)

  • Transcona Shannon replied 10 years ago

    Thank you ladies :)

    Isn't it interesting how we can view a simple outfit of trousers and blouse as "not exciting" or boring?

    Beth Ann - yes, those light bulbs are a force to be reckoned with, aren't they?

  • Peri replied 10 years ago

    Completely exciting! I wish my nothing too exciting looked that good.

  • Emily replied 10 years ago

    This outfit may be simple, but it is totally fab!  Your carefully chosen pieces and signature specs/lip colour are doing their jobs.  The new hair looks very cool, too!

    Love the hair Shannon!
    I can see the ease in your more fluid outfit - looks very comfy but stylish and 'you'.

  • Debora replied 10 years ago

    This is beautiful, Shannon. Simple, yet elegant. I really love your red glasses and new haircut. Also, your skin looks lovely, glowing and fresh.

  • Aida replied 10 years ago

    Not exciting maybe in terms of few pieces, but this is such a luxe looking outfit. Lovely! What a great crossover blouse, it looks like it was designed for you. I like the idea of wearing with bootcut bottoms, I'll have to give that a try with mine. Thanks for the idea! :D

    Gorgeous outfit and extra gorgeous hair! That blouse drapes beautifully on you. It looks superb with the bootcut trousers.

  • Windchime replied 10 years ago

    Your not-too-exciting is someone else's fantastic! Every time you post this blouse, it makes me smile. Your hair looks really great, too.

    More outfit and hair love. You could do a Master class in how to do simple yet spectacular.

  • catgirl replied 10 years ago

    Love the hair!  Was at Nordstrom returning The Vests and this VC shirt totally reminded me of you:


    And I thought it was something Ceit and I could wear also. :)

  • Sara L. replied 10 years ago

    I think it's a great outfit!  The pants fit great and the top is interesting and modern.

  • Deborah replied 10 years ago

    Looks pretty exciting to me:)  Love that blouse.  This is really modern and elegant.  It probably doesn't feel like you have put much 'effort' into the outfit but it is standout.  Love how your hair is looking.

  • Robidi replied 10 years ago

    Love the outfit and love the hair!

  • Lisa replied 10 years ago

    How is this not exciting?  Edgy hair, check.  Fun printed top, check.  Fun drape to top, check.  Perfectly fitting jeans, check.  It's the details to this outfit that make it exciting to my eye.

  • Alexandra replied 10 years ago

    Fabulous - both your outfit and your hair!

  • Kiwichik replied 10 years ago
