WIW: White Denim & Fur Vest

It's going to be a gorgeous fall day here - fairly warm later in the day but cool in the morning. In other words, it's the perfect day to finish off my white denim and add in my fur vest!

With my white denim, I've aded my blue J Jill silk blouse (I also have the mauve) and for some happy patterned feet, my animal print Doc Darcies (waving to Janet). My Fossil handbag was added as it works beautifully with these shoes. And then over top everything, my newly acquired faux fur vest. The vest photographs a little dark, looking almost black, but it is indeed a dark espresso brown.

So what do you think? colours and proportions work ok? does the vest work with this ensemble? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Vest: Jeanne Bekker
Blouse: J Jill
Jeans: Jeanne Bekker

Handbag: Fossill

    Looks comfy and perfect for fall. It's the updated work-shirt-and-down-vest look :)

    Oh wow Shannon!!! Probably my favorite look on you so far!

  • Astrid replied 8 years ago

    LOVE it! Simple but with interesting details.

    This is terrific, Shannon! I love it. Gorgeous details, as always. And how fun you get to wear your vest. I saw one in The Bay the other day and gave it a pet for you.

    Love the outfit! I like how you are making the white pants work so well for fall. I have a fur vest that I've only worn with very casual outfits, but your outfit makes me think I should try it with something a little more dressed up.

    This fur vest is so totally out of my comfort zone that I really wondered how I would feel wearing it - and you know what? I LOVE IT!!! I feel much more at ease in it than I thought I would, it's cozy, kinda edgy and I don't resemble a gorilla at all !!! Plus the cute guy at the gas station this morning said "cool vest"!

    Try yours with something dressy Sara - my guess is you'll like it!

    I knew you would love this fur vest :). You are a match made in heaven with it.

    You look smashing!!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Don't you EVER get tired of being right Angie - LOL?!

  • Angie replied 7 years ago


    I am SO not always right. But you are a feminine retro gal with classic and tomboy tendencies. The faux fur vest fits this style profile :)

    Also, I still love my Doc Saras so high five. And Greg loves them too. They just don't love me back anymore :(. At least I can enjoy them on you.

    I love the high contrast of dark and light for cooler weather! Love love love.

    Overheard at DFS yesterday when someone was saying that it's okay to wear white after Labor Day, but just because it's California, and *only* when it's still 90 degrees out. I will have to be careful where I preach my YLF wisdom!

    OMG SO FAB!!!

    Note to self: Bust out fur vest with white jeans the very minute the weather cooperates!

    You look fab! Perfect crisp transitional weather outfit!
