WIW for Angie: TipTaupe!

Angie suggests, I follow.

Here is the taupe linen sweatshirt paired with the leopard print scarf and white skinnies. I risked Angie's displeasure to roll them up boyfriend style, because it's such a beautiful sunny day here, and because it is easier to wear them that way with the Reports.

Thank you, Angie! This feels like a perfect transition-into-autumn look! (Though I must admit I will be switching the white jeans for darker ones when I go walking with my friend and her big, slobbery, Newfoundland dog!)

    I only have one thing to say before I pass out : Oh My Gawd !!! A 10.....as a trail off and faint.

  • pil replied 8 years ago

    Very cute and the glasses add to the look. The taupe puns are plentiful, good thing another color wasn't calling your name : )

    Oh, and my flat faced pugs are also a twosome you don't want to be near while wearing white.

  • Krista replied 8 years ago

    Super lovely and it will still look great when you pair it with the darker jeans for the walk with the doggie.
    I wish I had a taupe-y type pun to add to this post but alas, my past as a former English teacher defies me once again......

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    So perfect! File it away to be worn over and over!

    Posing in the taupe-iary? Taupe o' the mornin' to ya? Oh, don't get me started - I'll never staupe!

    (Krista, I was an English major. It only made me worse!)

  • Astrid replied 8 years ago

    AMAZING! Love everything about it.

  • Angie replied 8 years ago


    (I don't dislike the rolled look at all! I'm just VERY sticky about what I find flattering, which I guess translates to displeasure a lot of the time. But you score an A++ here. Well done!).

    Thanks for trying the combination I suggested, Suz. Perfect on you in every way :)

    I wore my white jeans with snake skin booties three times last week - I do have two pairs though. I love the look!

  • replied 8 years ago

    You look like Angie! I especially love the booties and scarf - I have a particular fondness for taupe! ;)

  • celia replied 8 years ago

    We all know that Angie is always right :)
    This outfit is perfect for you in terms of colors. Does it make you happy in terms of style persona also?

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    Una, don't make me choke on my tea! I am actually ready to spank your bottom because you have stolen some of the puns I had planned on using later in the week, you naughty woman, you!

    Pil, you are right - what if it had been purple? Not too many puns to be made out of that.

    Thank you, everyone! And thank you for that K rating, Angie. I am glad the rolls met your approval. These booties are fantastic, but I must admit they are a little bit difficult to wear with skinnies. Hmmm. Does that mean I have permission to get another pair of taupe booties? I have my eye on a pair....

    Celia, thank you! The outfit does make me happy in terms of style persona. Why I like it: it's simple, low-fuss, comfortable, sophisticated, clean lined. It is not exactly avant-garde, but in its emphasis on line and drape it feels modern to me and it picks up on some of the qualities I admire in avant-garde designs.

  • deb replied 8 years ago

    Too cute and I love your glasses with this look.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    Taupe-irrific!!! That Angie sure knows what she's talking about - this is fantastic on you Suz. The colours and the silhouette are fabulous.....happy sigh...

  • Ingunn replied 8 years ago

    *taking notes, feeling incredibly inspired by Suz's outfit, imaginative language and her ability to express her thoughts and ideas*

    You look so effortlessly terrific and chic!

  • nancylee replied 8 years ago

    This is a fabulous look, Suz. I'm so happy you're cracking the color code in your wardrobe. I'm learning from you. :)

    And I have to thank you for legitimizing taupe here on YLF. I have secretly loved this color (and its spectrum) for years but was afraid it wouldn't find much love here! You are a brave trailblazer for us neutral lovers!

  • CocoLion replied 8 years ago

    This color spectrum has gone from ranking as bottom-dweller soul sucking beige to taupe of the heap on YLF. I love it. OK that was my effort to add to the bad puns.

    You look fantastic!

  • Scarlet replied 8 years ago

    Really cute, especially with those glasses! I like the rolled cuffs with the boots. I think the little indentation in front looks cute with a slim cropped pant leg.

  • Ariadne replied 8 years ago

    Oh, this is my favourite thing I've seen on you. It's wonderful. I love the texture the scarf, sweatshirt (I didn't notice in any other outfit pics that it was linen--where did you get it? Please don't say consignment! :D) and booties bring to the outfit. That's what makes it for me and takes it from plain to simple in a great way.

  • Joy replied 8 years ago

    I didn't yet comment on your other taupe thread, but share your taupe-love. The white crisps and freshens the whole outfit. It's so inspirational, but I couldn't taupe this outfit.

  • Kyle replied 8 years ago

    Suz, what a great look! I would never have guessed that taupe could be so flattering on a blonde. The white bottoms make this a very fresh look. The roll and bootie combo, plus touch of animal print, add just the right touch of edge. Beautiful.

  • MsMary replied 8 years ago

    Love this! It's taupe nautch!

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    I am laughing myself silly at all these puns!!

    Ariadne, the sweatshirt wasn't thrifted, but almost. I bought it at H&M. My first ever purchase at that store. I am a bit embarrassed to have succumbed to fast fashion. But there it is.

  • JR replied 8 years ago

    The outfit is absolutely wonderful. I can't say as much for the puns, which are mostly the same pun tried in different contexts... *sigh* Another former English teacher here. I do love puns anyway, but again, variety rules. LOL.

    On an entirely different note, I loathe taupe siding. A whole neighbourhood clad in taupe, especially in min-winter, is a uniquely depressing thing. Developers seem to rely on it in hopes of offending no-one, I suppose. It's enough to make you move to a fishing village in Newfoundland, where they celebrate coloured houses.

    Sorry. Bad tangent. I'll stop. (Please notice I did NOT say I'll staupe.)

  • lynn replied 8 years ago

    Absolutely wonderful! Love the glasses too!

  • merwoman replied 8 years ago

    Love this - you look stunning Suz! Now I am picturing your taupe topper (or is that tauper) with jeans and your new black leather jacket...oh yes!

  • Caro in Oz replied 8 years ago

    AMAZING - I love it all. (p.s. you have the BEST stylist!!)

  • shevia replied 8 years ago

    This looks fantastic and goes to show that an H&M top can look like a million bucks when styled perfectly.

  • annagybe replied 8 years ago

    Looks really good.

  • MsMary replied 8 years ago

    And to take the puns in another direction... Suz, you inspire me to keep working on my style and never give up haupe!

  • KathyL replied 8 years ago

    You ladies are so punny. You crack me up. But back to the subject, Suz, I love this outfit on you! The neutrals play so well together, and I love those booties. Very nice!!

  • Mona replied 8 years ago

    Suz, this outfit is gorgeous. I am really enjoying your taupe capsule pics. it is such a fun learning experience. Also, the glasses add a very modern touch to your look.

  • lyn67 replied 8 years ago

    THIS IS MOST G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S outfit ever seen on YOU Suz!!!!
    OMG, cannot recover:-))

  • krishnidoux replied 8 years ago

    Coming in late... you look adorable in this. The rolling is perfect I think. I am in love with your reports. I want a pair! Where did you get them? I am afraid to order for shoes as I have such finicky feet.
    Taupe is a fantastic colour for you. And I like the new glasses!

  • Charmian replied 8 years ago

    Oh my goodness, I LOVE the textures in this! The taupe capsules you've been posting make me so excited for you and your newfound love!

    ( apropos of nothing, I just realized you'll be going to Beijing in a few weeks! I'm sure you've got your entire itinerary settled by now, but I lived there for a year and can send you some recommendations if you're still looking at this late juncture; PM me if you need this )
