WIW - Purple and White - 07/18/12

Nothing fancy lovely ladies,
I am enjoying my newish white denim AE jacket (I looked forever for a nice soft one). I have teamed it with my newish black capri -( Talbots) and my purple ballet tee (JCREW) plus my white watch and black wedge sandals. It's a comfortable outfit and I hope you like it!

    You look lovely, Meredith!
    It does pay to be picky and persistent. And whatever that third P is- I always forget!
    Purple is a great color for you.

    That's a great jacket, I'm so glad it's soft and you're loving it. Those sandals and crops are very good together!

  • Kiwichik replied 9 years ago

    White denim perfection.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 9 years ago

    Simple and lovely. That jacket is fantastic on you Meredith!

  • MsMary replied 9 years ago

    I think the third P is "patient."

    Meredith, you look great ! I love how a white jacket brings dark pieces to life in the summer!

  • Jilly replied 9 years ago

    You look classic and cool, Meredith. Your white AE jacket is great!

  • Ginny replied 9 years ago

    I am loving the white denim, glad you were able to find one!! It looks awesome with purple!!

  • Parsley replied 9 years ago

    Aha, MaryK! No wonder I forgot that one- it's a virtue that I'm completely lacking! But Meredith, it sounds like you were quite patient in the search or your nice soft jacket, and it paid off!

    Yes, my new white jacket is like cuddling in a blanket (a very soft blanket) The crops are coming in handy and the sandals, well I wish I could find a nude pair similar to these.

    Thanks you very much! I am really glad you like the jacket!

    Simple and lovely is good to hear! Thank you so much!

    I really like the way the white makes colors seem even brighter! Thanks for the nice words!

    Thanks so much! Classic is definitely part of my style objective.

    I am really glad to finally have my white denim jacket too! Purple does look nice with it!

    I am all about comfort! I can't stand stiff uncomfortable clothing. Thank you so much for the nice words. I never wore purple much until I let my hair go silvery. I did indeed have to be "patient" to find the jacket.

    I really like it. Simple, practical and fun. I also like the gradual color transition from bright top to dark bottom. Because you wear capris, this feels very summery.

    Isn't it great when you find the *right* piece? This jacket is perfection and I hope you'll enjoy it for many years to come.

    Btw, you come up with such wonderful color combinations and I'm always attracted to them. Purple and white - I *must* try that soon!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thank you very much Ornella! This is actually the first pair of capris I'ver every bought and I'm glad you like the way the color moves through the outfit!

    Simple, summery, and chic! Sometimes simplicity is such a winning formula, especially in the summer! You look fab.

  • Aida replied 9 years ago

    Agree with Jonesy! This is a great breezy and comfortable looking outfit, and the colors are lovely on you.

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Agreeing with Jonesy that simple is often the winning formula. This looks well put together, stylish, cool and casual.

    Another great outfit in black, white and colour (after Amy's today) --- I really must learn to do this at home!

    Meredith, something about these proportions makes you look so tall and willowy --- long of leg (crops and a diagonal sandal strap?) *and* long of waist (the cropped jacket?). What a winner!
