WIW: Slouchy Skinnies & Chunky Knit

This is the smaller pair of the Canyon River slouchy skinnies I bought and are one size up from my regular size. Again, without the belt there is the possibility of a wardrobe malfunction. And because I had intercepted Wonder Woman regarding the tapering of the ankle, the hemming on these is just right :)

I've paired the jeans with my chunky cream fisherman knit sweater and have semi tucked the sweater so a wee bit of the animal print belt can show. On my feet are the SE python booties for a bit of pattern mixing with the belt and because they have cream in them, they bookend the sweater.

For my handbag I went with my Fossil re-issue vintage two tone bag - it picks up the cognac tones in the belt.

Jewelry is just my wedding ring and gold oversized watch.

What do you think? Proportions work ok? I must say these are now my FAVOURITE jeans - love the cut, colour, fit, everything. As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Sweater: Nygard (thrifted)
Jeans: Canyon River (Sears)
Belt: Street Ahead
Boots: Sam Edelman
Watch: thrifted
Handbag: Fossil

    I love this sweater on you. The neckline is perfect!
    I can see why these are you fav jeans...they look very comfortable AND stylish. It's the bag that really does me in....you are so good at finding the right back to go with the outfit. Really a gift, for sure.
    Proportions look good. YLF!

    Looks great, Shannon! Very comfortable for a Friday. Have a lovely day!

  • clearlyclaire replied 5 years ago

    These might very well be *my* favorite jeans on you too, Shannon! I just love that whiskering! The textures of your sweater, belt and those fab booties are just so yummy together. You got it goin' on girl!

    I also love these jeans on you - and the cream color sweater is really nice too (I've seen you in white/cream before and really think it's great for you). LOVE those booties and the belt - everything here works perfect!

    Wow, I love this on you! Great look.

  • Angie replied 5 years ago


    And to think you were worried about how to wear those booties :)

    I LOVE my Sears jeans too!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Thanks ladies! BTW I notice that these jeans photograph a bit "poochy" in the stomach area but they don't look like that IRL - in fact, I find them quite flattering in the midsection.

    Angie - I promise to ALWAYS listen to your advice :)

  • Amy replied 5 years ago

    Cute! I don't see a poochy tummy area. You look cozy and ready for a great day.

  • Jjsloane replied 5 years ago

    Great look on you Shannon. I hope you don't mind that I plan to copy it this weekend (I found the SE petty's at the Rack for $70!!) with my Gap sweater.

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    FAB times 10!! These are my favourite of your jeans, too, and now I am wishing I ordered a pair after all....

    Oh...bootie twin!! Yes, my python beauties arrived today. I am going to try to snap some pics later on.

  • Day Vies replied 5 years ago

    Love the boots and sweater. I am clearly late to the party on the boots because those Sam Edelman's are sold out everywhere (and if not sold out not in my size). Lovely cozy winter formula. (I'll be copying when I find the right boot :-)

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    Ooh, I love that neckline! And I also like how the sweater drapes enough to do a half tuck. Proportions look great to me!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Jeanne - copy away!

    Suz - AAAHHHHH!!! You got your boots...and???

    Day Vies - hope you find your boots!

    Rae - I wish the sweater were a tiny bit longer but hey, you can't have everything!

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    You have fantastic style instincts, Shannon. Trust them :)

  • MsMary replied 5 years ago

    This? Is casual perfection!! Love it!!!

  • morethanbeige replied 5 years ago

    TS, I love the skinnies and everything about this outfit. You rock!

  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago

    Great outfit, you look so stylish and the pants have just the right amount of slouch.

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    Check my thread - oh boot twin!!

    Guess what? I tried to order the jeans and although it said (on my second attempt) that they are available for international shipping, it also said "temporarily unavailable) and wouldn't allow me to order. Sigh....

    They only have 2 sizes up from regular so I am a bit hesitant anyway, although at that price it is worth a try. IF I can get them!

  • Zapotee replied 5 years ago

    Another sweater & slouchy denim success. I still have the booties home. You guys are making me reconsider.

  • Caro in Oz replied 5 years ago

    I love it ALL. It would look gorgeous with a cream bag too:)

  • Deborah replied 5 years ago

    Shannon these look amazing. And I love the sweater! Oh and the booties. This is a stellar outfit. You truly look fab!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Suz - the pair I have that are two sizes up are definitely huge on me but I quite like the excessive slouch on them. Both pair have different vibes because of the different fit and I like that. But you have to be comfortable with mega crotch drop when it's two sizes up. BTW I love these jeans so much that I took a wee bit of my Christmas money from my Mom and ordered a 3rd pair - in my actual size that I'm hoping will become too big and slouchy over time :)

    Zap - you have these booties? Girl, why aren't you wearing them??? Give them another go.

    Caro - very subtle (lol!)

    Thanks ladies. This was one of the casual outfits I have felt the best in in a long time.
