WIW: Spring neutrals (with a nibble of style fantasy)

Neutrals for the past couple of days.  It's been warm, but I'm still chilly. So I'm dressing more wintry than the weather would imply.

Monday I wore jeans and a stripey sweatshirt.  I felt great in this - I realize the pic isn't fabulous, but I felt lean and strong in it.

Today I tried out black and white and light blue with black skinnies, a chambray top and the white jacket that Kate (Ceit) sent me a couple of years ago.  I liked it too.

I don't think either of these pictures are great, but they're the ones I got. 

Do they work?  What should change?  (Besides the shoes, which were purely functional... :)  )

In my style fantasy, super-comfortable and healthy shoes would also be attractive and cheap.  Ha :)

In reality my fantasy style is a lot like my real style.  My fantasy life is small-scale farming, and covered with dirt as I plant a garden this spring. My fantasy style is being perfectly dressed for whatever occasion I'm at - and these outfits are pretty close to what the activities of the days called for.

    The top in #1 goes better with the clogs, I feel. #2 does seem to call for boots, then you'd have the Firefly thing going. Ya, it's all about the shoes.

    That white jacket looks great on you. So fresh. This jacket would work for business casual.

    I really love the first outfit - not surprising you felt great in it!
    The white jacket is wonderful too.

    Lean and Strong! Give me a handful of outfits that inspire Lean and Strong, and who needs/wants anything else. Awesome job!

    The jeans in the first one are very lean and strongifying! I would prefer other shoes with #2 but the outfit still looks good.

    Both outfits are nice.  I actually can't see your shoes that well so I'm imagining they are your fantasy shoes and look perfect :)  I like the striped top in #1 and the jacket layered over the longer shirt in #2.

    (I'm with you on your shoe fantasy). 

    I love that you feel strong and confidant in this outfit. Rock on.

    Ha fantasy shoes that would happen in my world also. Just wanted to say that jacket is really great on you and like it with the top showing underneath.

    #1 works really well and your legs look a mile long. I love the jacket in #2 and agree with Shevia, that a slightly different shoe may be better with it.
