WIW: Non color

Somehow today I ended up wearing only black and white (and a bit of gray).  I'm not sure it worked - probably should have added my white chain necklace.

What do you think? 

Also, what do you think about this top?  It's very roomy, and I feel like I'm swimming in it, but in a good way.  I may use it as a pattern to make some more like it.  It this one, in black, in a large.   (I'm usually between a medium and a large.  And of course, I got it at GoodWill).

You know I love suggestions!

    I think it's a super outfit, and with the interesting neckline of the sweater I wouldn't add a thing. Those boots are amazing on you btw.

    Everything works. You look wonderful.

    Yes, this works! It's fantastic.

    The neutrals with are wonderful with the white jeans, and the black boots are a great finishing touch.

    Wow1  Thanks you all!

    I'm headed to bed - Thanks for the good thoughts to end the day!

    Joy, you made white click for me - I like it as a bright!

  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago

    Oy, yes!  Ami, this is still high contrast, which definitely works for you, but it's simplified color palette makes it very modern and a tad minimalist.  Moms are rarely minimalist, as I know only too well, lol.  This is fab, and yes, white is a bright!

  • jenanded replied 7 years ago

    love it!

  • rachylou replied 7 years ago

    This is a knockout. Perfect length on the sweater, perfect drape, perfect shoe choice...

  • replied 7 years ago

    I have to agree with every one else. You look great! The high contrast definitely suits you and the proportions are spot on.

  • Hil replied 7 years ago

    This looks great! White is bright - I love that!

  • Lantana replied 7 years ago

    This is SO good I think you could set it as the benchmark for your casual outfits.
    You look amazing in these neutrals; they have the delightful effect of highlighting your beautiful eyes.
    I love the balance you've achieved here with the volume of the top and the weight of the boots.
    A really super duper outfit, way to go!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    This is absolutely fantastic on you!! SO stylish. You look relaxed, comfortable, happy, bright.

    Love this! I am going to copy you!

  • krishnidoux replied 7 years ago

    I LOVE IT! Very cool, very androgynous too, in a good way. Boots are such a genius addition here. And the fit, both of jeans and top, is very trendy. 

  • Krista replied 7 years ago

    Perfect! Perfect slouchiness, perfect boots, perfect jeans.  Best outfit yet! :)

  • lyn67 replied 7 years ago

    Ami, I signed in just to tell you how fab and current this outfit is! Absolutely gorgeous! In awe for you! Good job, cogngrats!

  • texstyle replied 7 years ago

    I agree this is one of your best - you look Fantastic in this and should wear it often. And I don't think a necklace was needed at all - sometimes simpler IS better.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    PERFECTION! Love black and white and you have got just the perfect amount of slouch on these jeans and the sweater. Fab semi tuck too!

    What brand are those jeans Amiable? I absolutely love them.

  • amiable replied 7 years ago

    Thanks you all! 

    Shannon, they are "BDG Skinny mid-rise".   They're size 34, which I'm guesing is a couple sizes up from my normal (but I don't even know my normal size, so your guess is as good as mine - they don't stay up without a belt)  Goodwills here are flooded with white jeans - if they didn't get so dirty, I'd get another pair!

    And thanks for the votes on the simplicity - I think I'd like to take my style in a more minimalist/simple direction - it feels very non-fussy, which I like :)

  • pil replied 7 years ago

    Maybe you need another pair precisely because they DO get dirty! I will sing along with the choir - you are looking great!

  • JulieJohn replied 7 years ago

    Heck yeah, this is a great look on you! Simplicity suits you.
