Team Wear!

Sorry for forum hogging after months of absence. My daughter is on March break and brought our camera home -- yippee!! I can take pics!! 

We had a warm day yesterday -- it was amazing! So, on with the new! Thanks to Angie and Karen for the inspiration and to all of you for help picking the jacket. It will get a ton of use -- worth full price for me.

    Well, of course it's perfect, as are the crops.  I need to see your footwear and length more closely as I suspect this is my sticking point. 

  • Angie replied 6 years ago


    LOVE the scarf. 

    LOVE the stripes. 

    LOVE the crops.

    MISSED your outfits. 

    ADORE you. 

    My shouting is out of pure affection, sweet Suz. 

  • Tanya replied 6 years ago

    Perfect outfit in every possible way, Suz. So glad you got the jacket. And I have that BR top on order, too.

  • rachylou replied 6 years ago

    Now this is fab!

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 6 years ago

    Gorgeous! Just gorgeous! The jacket, the scarf, the stripes, the jeans, anchored by fabulous boots. I'm so glad you found this jacket in a shade of blue that is perfect for you. I felt the same way about my moto jacket when I stumbled across one in the dusty shade of dark olive that is a slam-dunk for me to wear with just about anything--worth full price!

  • replied 6 years ago

    It is just a gorgeous outfit. Great colours, and nice mix up of pattern. You look fab!

  • Marilyn replied 6 years ago

    This is perfect, Suz.  I love the way you rock scarves in your outfits. And I LOVE the jacket.

  • Peri replied 6 years ago

    Beautiful! And of course I am happy to see a scarf. 

    Funny that is what you can wear on a warm day. We had mid 80s this week, way past jackets of any kind. Past long sleeves of any kind actually. It was kind of a crisis!

  • replied 6 years ago

    Really nice - and cute BR top on you . That top looks like a good one for quite a few forum members - and you wear it really well !  

  • Ginger replied 6 years ago

    Splendid! :D I particularly love the scarf with that jacket, and both are beautiful on you.

  • abc replied 6 years ago

    What Angie said. A thousand times over. You are one of my ylf style icons. Man, you know how to dress yourself.

  • viva replied 6 years ago

    Love that jacket! Looks great with this whole outfit. So fantastic.

  • merwoman replied 6 years ago

    Love love love! You look gorgeous Suz!

  • MTBGirl replied 6 years ago

    Fantastic! Terrific! Fabulous! That top should be waiting for me when I get home tonight and I'm going to try it with my cropped flares also! And if I could copy your jacket I would too! :) 
    And ditto to what abc said!

  • Banoffi replied 6 years ago

    Your outfit looks great!  I love the scarf with the striped shirt.  I can never figure out how to mix patterns, but you really know how to do it.

  • JAileen replied 6 years ago

    Great jacket, great outfit!

  • Sara L. replied 6 years ago

    You look great! I love the new jacket.

  • Mochi replied 6 years ago

    Sublime coolness.

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    Perfect! Remember how we discussed that you cannot see yourself in a leather moto? Now you have two of them.
    Love the whole outfit (and if I am not shouting like Angie it is only because I am t work now :-) )
    Crops look wonderful on you with the booties.
    How do you find the top? I tried it on in the store but it did not feel comfortable in shoulders and sleeves in my size and size up was too big

  • Cerinda replied 6 years ago

    Oh, so entirely wonderful!  Really inspiring pattern mixing.  And yes, iconic.  Wow.

  • Lyn D. replied 6 years ago

    YAY- more Suz pics :)
    Love the new blue jacket too!

  • ma replied 6 years ago

    Love the moto!! And the crops look great! Gorgeous!

  • Caro in Oz replied 6 years ago

    Hey, cool Suz - I LOVE this outfit on you :) :)

  • Aziraphale replied 6 years ago

    To-die-for jacket! *drool*. 

    You look fab xo

  • Keix replied 6 years ago

    Love the jacket on you, and this whole outfit. I was silently a little unsure about a blue moto with jeans but this combo 100% works. Where did you find your scarf, and do you have any close-ups of the print? It's the key piece for me in this outfit, breaking up the blues and mixing with the stripes to add interest.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Thank you all. This forum is such a happy place! I was so thrilled to be able to take pictures again today. 

    So, KL, the scarf is from H&M in the fall. I don't have a Find of it, but I do have the Find of a blouse in the same print. I don't actually even own this blouse, but I own the long sleeved tunic version, which I love. LisaP and Janet put me onto it. Best print ever for me. I doubt if it is available any more, but I am sure they have similar. 

    Sveta, the top works for me -- I got my normal size, XS, and it fits. Of course I got ink on the sleeves on my first outing, but hey. I am a writer. 

    Banoffi (and others) pattern mixing florals and stripes is a slam dunk. Super easy. Angie has given us a tutorial in a blog post from a ways back. I have to run now but will link to it later. 

  • cobaltblue replied 6 years ago

    This outfit blows me away! And you look so lovely. The scarf is perfect, and the jacket is a top 10 ever item, for sure. Glad you brought it home and are already wearing it.

  • SarahTheWhite replied 6 years ago

    Oh I have missed you!! And I LOVE this outfit! You look so wonderful. :-)

  • Gaylene replied 6 years ago

    Another killer outfit, Suz! You make it look so easy to sport stripes and florals, kick crops, and matching moto jackets. With this outfit, you've earned the right to say: "What, this old thing? I just threw it on before I left the house." ;)

    And, for any other YLFers who might have the chance to meet Suz in person, she's totally easy to spot in a crowd--just look for the most stylish woman in the room!

  • Aida replied 6 years ago

    Lovely Suz! Great to see the navy moto in action right away. You're definitely going to get plenty of use from it. Enjoying the "classic" pattern mix of stripes/florals with the trendy jeans and cool leather jacket. GREAT vibe to this outfit.

    (I see we were on a similar wave length today ^^)

  • Gail replied 6 years ago

    You aced it

  • Aquamarine replied 6 years ago

    Gah! Fabulous!

  • Brooklyn replied 6 years ago

    Decision to buy vindicated! You look radiant. Great outfit.

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    Suz, it is so good to see a WIW from you again. You glow in this outfit.

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    Isn't it fun to play with new toys?  You look like yourself -- but at your very best.  The soft, but unexpected blue is a terrific choice for you, and the updated denim is cut above!

  • unfrumped replied 6 years ago

    If so fab. Love the off- blue- great choice.

  • jenanded replied 6 years ago

    Perfect! Xx

  • Maneera replied 6 years ago

    So So So So GOOD TO SEE YOU! I've missed you too, Suz!!!! You look uber stylish, as always. I love the striped top with the scarf - fantastic pattern mixing. And you look really great in the crops too! Oh, and yes, fab jacket!

  • Summer replied 6 years ago

    Fabulous, Suz!  I'm green with envy.

  • Marilyn replied 6 years ago

    Suz.....I must thank you again for sharing this find.  Mine arrived today and I'm so thrilled with it.  It's quite petite friendly.  From the colour to the striped lining to the little pocket on the inside to the slight curve on the front's a gem. :)

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    That's so great, Marilyn!! Yes, it is petite friendly, for sure. I saw a very petite woman trying it on in store in XS and it looked great on her. It's scaled to s smaller frame for sure, as most Zara and Massimo Dutti clothes are. 

  • Jaime replied 6 years ago

    Fantastic! I have the tunic cousin to your scarf and it is just the thing when I am feeling dull.

  • approprio replied 6 years ago

    Another absentee waving from the sidelines. You look lovely :)

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 6 years ago

    Perfection! Love Angie's response.

  • rabbit replied 6 years ago

    You look great, love the pattern mixing of the scarf with the top and the new jacket, they all work together beautifully.

  • Ooh is that silk replied 6 years ago

    Lovely jacket-scarf-top combo, it all looks perfectly balanced!

  • Momo replied 6 years ago

    Love this Suz!
    What a great jacket and love the shirt and scarf with it.

  • replied 6 years ago

    Oh goodness, Suz, this is perfect on you. I'm *so* glad you got that jacket. As a follower, I've missed your WIWs, but understand the need to share your camera with a photography student!

  • lyn67 replied 6 years ago

    It is such treat to  have a wiw from you, I missed them, too! I cannot say better then the others before me, it looks all so sensational and easy on you-and blue is your color, of course! My word, effortless chic:-).

  • Karin L H replied 6 years ago

    Fab look! Love the scarf, the stripey top and the jacket. And I thought I recognised the pattern in the scarf - I saw in a comment that you linked to a blouse in the same pattern, and I have that one but in a mama top for my recent pregnancy, loved that top!

  • Vix replied 6 years ago

    Hi Suz --

    Don't know how I missed this -- I thought I had a google alert for "YLF + blue" -- but wow, amazing find.

    I predict you'll wear it tons because it looks great and that's one of your *feels right* colors!

    Beautiful outfit. [Ditto above articulateness.] So envious of the scarf and to hear it came in all these other pieces and that you, Shevia, and others have it.... I would totally have lemming'd had I known, ha!
