Denim blue, pink, lilac, bone

Today it's cold here so I am going with cashmere! This is my take on the blue, pink, lilac, bone formula. 

First (because the insipiration is an outdoor outfit) showing with jacket, scarf, hat, bag. Next, the indoor version. 

One thing it might interest you to know about this outfit: it includes pieces from this season, all the way back to some of my earliest items at YLF. The cashmere tee has been an incredible purchase. Those older J. Crew collection items, if you can get them on sale (or second hand), can be fabulous quality for price. 

Thanks for the inspiration, Angie!

    KILLER CUTE, Suz!  A satisfying remix of old and new items!

    The SCARF with the beanie = Stinking cute and fun complement! :) 

    Isn't our puffer awesome!! I've been wearing mine A LOT!

    I LOVE the white bits in the patterns and how they pick up your gorgeous silver hair. Pretty, and flattering.

    Wide jeans, FTW!

    You look terrific, Suz!! I love how you mixed this all!! You look terrific in wide jeans. That is a shape that is tougher for me to wear. I have some envy seeing you all rock it :D 

  • Suz replied 6 months ago

    Ket, thank you. And I get the envy! I can't wear a wrap dress (or top) or really any surplice style because I don't fill it out. 

    For jeans, the style that does not work well on me is a medium straight leg. (Yeah, the classic style that supposedly works on everyone. Nope!) What works best on me is a slim straight (not quite a skinny), a tapered jean (like a BF or a balloon style), or a wide leg but the wide leg has to be extra wide, like an A-line. Why? I have no idea! Must be proportions. I can wear a full length flare or boot cut but not a cropped version of same. 

    Angie, thank you! And yes, this jacket is so fab! I wear it a ton!

    Cardiff Girl -- thank you!

    It’s so helpful to finally figure out what pant shapes work on us.

    I’m quite the opposite. I don’t find bootcut or flares really look good on me. I know bootcut is also supposed to be a classic; I’ve just never felt it truly worked on me. Even my brother, who possesses a sharp eye for style, told me bootcut jeans make me look even wider. (Flares are even worse.) Actually, I typically don’t like nor look good in flare done anywhere—except for a peplum. Flared cuffs and flared pants just don’t do nice things for me. The line needs to narrow around my wrist, ankle, or waist.

    My best is harem pants and soft joggers, slim legs that taper to the ankle, skinnies, boyfriends, and a slim but straight leg . (Jeggings actually aren’t my best though I wear them currently for ease.).

    I still want to experiment some more with wide leg styles in case I’ve had a poison eye and missed a good style for me. But otherwise I kind of stick with the taper.

    The taper makes sense, Ket, because it gives what Angie calls "structure." I like tapered pants, too.

    The scarf and the red bag made my day. Terrific outfit, Suz. Speaking of envy . . . well color me green.

    Those are excellent wide leg jeans.  I’m with Angie on the hat and scarf combo.❤️

  • Jaime replied 6 months ago

    What a fabulous outfit Suz! I especially like the pink on you with the collar popping out, and the cut of the jeans is excellent. 

  • SarahD8 replied 6 months ago

    Gorgeous once again! I especially love the scarf...

  • Dee replied 6 months ago

    Oh that pink sweater just pops with your hair. Fun combo all the way round.

  • Quietgirl replied 6 months ago

    What a great outfit! You look simply amazing. A superb take on Angie's inspiration.
