WIW: Spring Flowers

Another warm day in The 'Peg so more bare legs and spring looks :)

Today's outfit started with my favourite wardrobe item of all time - my black EF drape front dress. Remember this one? This is probably the most worn item I have ever owned and I will be wearing it a ton again this Spring/Summer.

I topped the dress with my floral silky bomber jacket, scrunching the sleeves to add some structure.

My PF is acting up a bit today due to a lengthy walk last evening so chose my Naot shoes for comfort (note to self: need to source extremely comfortable and supportive running shoe). I'm falling more in love with these shoes each time I wear them.

I didn't have time this morning to change out my handbag so I hope the citron looks ok with this.

So does this all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Jacket: Smart Set
Dress: Eileen Fisher (eBay)
Shoes: Naot
Handbag: Sergio Ferretti

    I'm loving your springtime looks, Shannon. Great bomber! I totally think the citron bag works, in fact I think it adds to the Spring effect. It echoes nature blooming away in all its glorious colour. Perfect!

    Fab! I am surprised every time I read these shoes are Naot and think I must check them out! And get a floral jacket.

    Gorgeous! That bag is stunning!!!

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    This is a terrific and fun look on you, Shannon. That bag was the best buy of the year!

    Looking lovely, Shannon! The floral bomber and shoes add a touch of feminine playfulness (because they are not as serious as a blazer and pumps) that I adore. YLF!

    This floral bomber is fantastic! And this is a great look. Well done!

  • Elizabeth P replied 4 years ago

    Of course I remember the dress :)
    Great look Shannon... I am hoping to find a floral bomber at some point myself, it really does add some fun to an outfit.  This looks so fresh.
    I saw it was going to 24 there today... WOW!!

    Citron has to be a neutral. It looks great with anything. I think that EF dress is the same one that a friend has and probably wears 4-5 times a week. The beautiful floral jacket gives it a great spring look. YLF.

    Terrific!  I love it!

    Great look!  I love the colors in your floral jacket.  Those shoes are great with the straps that cross in front.  Dramatic yet simple.

    Thanks everyone :)

  • Karie replied 4 years ago

    That floral bomber is beautiful and it looks fab with your EF dress. I predict a lot of wears for both items!

  • Karin L H replied 4 years ago

    Great look! Love that bomber jacket.

  • Astrid replied 4 years ago

    Of course it works! You look great, Shannon.

  • Carole replied 4 years ago

    Such a beautiful bomber! Love how you've used it here:)

  • Angie replied 4 years ago


    And brought a Spring smile to my face.

    Thank you again ladies - it's funny, when I bought this floral bomber it was quite a wildcard for me. Although I have always loved florals (especially on a dark background), a bomber jacket wasn't quite "me" due to the lack of structure. But I've ended up wearing this item much more than I thought I would so once again - you just never know do you?

  • jackiec replied 4 years ago

    LOVE all of this. The black, the floral, the shoes, and especially the pop of citron. Wow. Enjoy the heat in the 'Peg ;)

  • Aida replied 4 years ago

    Fun! The floral really brings the black to life. Citron bag totally works to my eye, it picks up on the bits of yellow in the jacket :)

  • Keturah replied 4 years ago

    SUPERB! I love that jacket, and the shoes and bag are just fun!

    xoxo. Mille says hi :)

  • MTBGirl replied 4 years ago

    Superb outfit! That jacket seems like it was made for you and your coloring!

  • Sarah A replied 4 years ago

    Looking great! I love the little V created at the top of the criss-cross straps on your shoes :)  I like the longer bomber with the dress too (as opposed to a cropped jacket length)...
