Skinnies with Flats and Black and white stripes with Gray Zebra scarf

Hi lovelies!
It is a misty Sunday morning and I am heading over to twinnies house for tea and a chat! Here is what I wore. This is my first time wearing the new skinnies with flats. I am also really digging wearing two patterns at once!. Opinions please Sorry for the blurry last pic.

levi demi-curve dark blue skinnies
LLBEAN black and white stripe boatneck
black and metal necklace
green jacket
gray and black zebra scarf
old black jessica simpson "levi" flats (need replacing with something a little jazzier?)
poppy red eddie bauer raincoat
white ceramic watch

    You look wonderful! It's hard to believe you were a late adopter of the skinnies trend--they look like they were made for you! Love the navy with the brights--you look so springy and chic.

  • cheryle (Dianthus) replied 9 years ago

    Oh Meredith. It just keeps getting better and better. I love the stripes with the bright jacket. You can definitely pull off the skinnies with flats.

  • Jjsloane replied 9 years ago

    Wow you certainly adapted quickly to this silhouette and you layer your colors beautifully. I agree some snazzier flats would be a great addition here. Maybe something colorblocked?
    I love these: (the red version might be in my bag waiting for a price drop this week...)

  • christieanne replied 9 years ago

    The green jacket is perfect here! Flats with skinnies = can't miss. Those jeans look custom made for you.

    One more new flat suggestion (no picture though) is a metallic flat. When Angie first introduced them a few years back, I thought she was over the edge. Now, I can't live without them. I have a matte silver in rotation currently. Colorblocked flats are my first love!

    Meridith, I just adore you in colors!

    Pulled together beautifully- great pattern mixing and the jacket is the perfect pop of color.

  • Isabel replied 9 years ago

    I agree that it just keeps getting better. You do casual sooooo well. Really aspirational. Have fun.

  • Sara L. replied 9 years ago

    Great outfit! I like the yellow (at least on my monitor) blazer with the stripes.. The patterned scarf looks great too.

  • Evie replied 9 years ago

    You look fab. I especially love the zebra stripe - boatneck stripe combo, unexpected and effortlessly chic.
    Skinnies seem perfect for you. Congratulations on their first outing!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks so much for liking the combo together! I was nervous about wearing the skinnies without boots because I thought it would make my thigh look large. I do like them with flats now that I see how it really looks! I am glad the scarf and sweater aren't to ALGO!
    I LOVE those shoes and I think I have that pair or something remarkably like them in my wishlist at Nordies! Perfect.
    metallic....ooooh shiny! I need to check that out since it sounds like a really good idea.

  • Suz replied 9 years ago

    PATTERN mixing!! Wow, I love this jacket with the striped top. This is gorgeous and so spring-like.

  • Mo replied 9 years ago

    I was bit concerned about skinnies with flats, too, but a little scrunch at the bottom seems to visually balance things out. Looks great to me!

  • replied 9 years ago

    Oh yeah, bay-bay! You got it ALL goin' on! This looks fantastic and I love the pattern mixing with the stripes and animal print. You look perfect in the skinnies and flats!

  • Mona replied 9 years ago

    You look great.

  • Ginny replied 9 years ago

    Great job Meredith!!! I think the skinnies and flats look great on you and the addition of the colorful jacket makes it very springy!!!! Glad you gave the skinnies a whirl!! you are giving me inspiration!!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Ladies! Thanks again!
    Yes a little scrunch at the bottom does help balance the skinnies with the flats. I'm going to try them with my Born shooties next! I have black ones and taupe ones!
    You crack me up! Yeah Bay-bay!

  • Kirti replied 9 years ago

    I adore the zebra and stripes combo! You look great as always :)

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Another great outfit Meredith! Your style has progressed to the epitome of Angie's Modern Classic.

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks for the sweet words! Tea was lovely with twinnie AKA "my best girl".
    That is such a compliment and I really appreciate your approval! That beige jacket from yesterday has officially been banned!

    Those skinnies look great on you. Love the color combination also. And as mother to twin girls, delighted to read that your twin is still your best girl!
