WIW: Wishing Spring in

Catching up on WIWs from the past week or so (might have to look back to see what I last posted...)  I think I missed photoing one, but it was a repeat that you've seen before.

#1 Black and cognac.  Not very spring-like, but I thought the combo worked.
#2 Poppies and black.  Worn to church.  I liked it, but the shoes ended up not-so-comfy.  worn with earrings in #7.
#3, Green jeans! with blue denim top and striped cardigan (same as #9)
#4 blue jeans with brown crew-neck sweater and big red cardigan.  I'm not sure this cardi works - it's  strange shape for me.
#5 white jeans with green sweater, cognac jacket and shoes
#9, same as #3, without the cardigan (and sleeves unrolled - I wore it like #3 though).

My girls decided on Saturday that my wearing just my silver-toned studs in my ears all the time was boring, and I needed to wear my earrings.  So I challenged them to pick out earrings for me to wear each day and I would wear them.  Saturday they picked out the leather "feather" earrings in #7, and I wore them with outfit #4.  Sunday, they picked out #6 for St. Patrick's day, and I wore them with #2, and this morning, they picked out #8, and I'm wearing them with #3.

#6-#8 homemade earrings, chosen for me to wear by my daughters.  

Please leave suggestions and feedback.  I love learning what works and doesn't!

    Great set out of outfits. Wow, I love them all. I think #3 is my favorite--bold, playful and stylish. Ylf!

    love the color play in all the outfits. very fab.The simplicity of # 9 has my heart though!

    Fun outfits! I think they all look great as-is, except for #4 which I would like to see with either pointier and/or slightly heeled shoes/boots (the flat+round-toed shoes give this outfit some extra frump to my eye). I think you'll find those green jeans surprisingly versatile, I wear mine all the time in spring/summer especially!

    An excellent week, Amy!  LOVING (and that's a Diva shout) the cognac jacket with the black.  So down to earth and elegant at the same time.  The poppy look is fresh and polished and perfect for the church.  The next look is wonderful.  Actually, they are all fab! 

    What about trying the red cardi with skinnies.  I think that proportion might work better.

    Love 1,2 and 5.  I really think these are some of your best WiWs I have seen!  Cruddy weather, but you look terrific!

    I absolutely love #3! The others are great, too, but #3 blows me away! I am totally copying that outfit :)
  • Angie replied 7 years ago
    Sweet that your kids are waying in on your earring style :)

    #3 and #5 are KILLER. You best ever!

  • Debora replied 7 years ago
    Your girls did a wonderful job picking out earrings! All look fab to me, especially #1,3, and 5. Love your green jeans!
  • Susie replied 7 years ago
    These look great! I especially love # 1 and 3. 
  • Tina.b replied 7 years ago
    This is absolutely your best set of outfits ever. Really adore #1,3 and 5. That leather jacket pulls the outfits together beautifully, giving a luxe look. And the striped sweater is so fun with the green jeans. Just fabulous!

    No time to comment properly, but you look so happy in pic #1 with your daughter, and your outfit looks great too.  My daughters have been giving me style advice since they were preschoolers, and they still do now that they're in their late 20's. I help them too:-)
  • Ornella replied 7 years ago
    I agree with Angie (now that's some news... :o) that 3 and 5 are outstanding. You have such a gentle smile and best of all - your kids are adorable.
  • catgirl replied 7 years ago
    I agree these are your best outfits yet!  And #3 is the best of the best! ::)
  • Sara L. replied 7 years ago
    All these outfits are great!  You are really starting to get a feel for your style, proportions and what looks good on you.

    OMG! Something has happened here when I looked away from the forum for a second. You are looking so fab in these outfits. I love 1, 3 and 9 especially. I'm amazed at your fast progress. You're leaving us in the dust Amiable!

    I love #3!  Those green jeans look excellent on you!
  • Raisin replied 7 years ago
    These all look fab!  Your girls chose great earrings.  I love 1 and 3 the most.
  • replied 7 years ago
    I think you are looking great in these. The only one which has me doubting a bit is 4, it probably is the shoes as Aida said. What lovely hand crafted earrings, most impressive!
