WIW - Feeling the color cream

It's Spring and we are having a beautiful week of weather in the 70s.  Compared to coastal California, we don't get as much perfection in the 70s, it's either cold or a lot hotter.  Anyway, I am feeling extra stylish when the weather is so stylish, hence my glut of WIW posts!  Hope you don't mind.

This is a quintessentially "me" outfit, I was happy with this one.  The jacket was a gift (used), it's IRO.  The last time I wore it y'all thought it looked too ladies who lunch, what do you think this time?

Jeans - Rag & Bone;  Booties - LD Tuttle; Tee - Everlane;  Belt - UO; Sunglasses - Anthropologie; Fringe clutch - Tylie Malibu.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

    I think this time you've nailed it!
    I love the combination of cream and white, and the bookending with the light colored booties.
    This is such a perfect combo for your coloring! Just fabulous!

    I loved the jacket on you from the get-go Denise, and I absolutely love how you are wearing it here. Effortlessly nonchalant with the semi-tucked white tee and those fantastic jeans. Creams look lovely on you, and the booties bookend your hair and tops. Love everything about this.

    I think you look fantastic. I love the creams with the denim, YLF :)

    Perfect styling of that jacket. You look great! I'm decked out in cream today too.

  • CocoLion replied 6 years ago

    I don't know if anyone noticed how the gold belt and golden sunglasses match!  I was *Extremely* excited about this aspect of the outfit… it's the little things, right?

  • texstyle replied 6 years ago

    Looks effortless and stylish - perfect!

  • carter replied 6 years ago

    I love cream with white too. You look awesome!

    quintessentially fabulous!

  • Caro in Oz replied 6 years ago

    Love it - you look fantastic in cream. The belt & sunnies are cool  :) :)

  • Debora replied 6 years ago

    Perfectly styled, Denise! I don't think you could look "ladies who lunch" even if you tried. You are just waaaay too cool! :)

  • shevia replied 6 years ago

    Love the jacket. Not a single ladies who lunch vibe here. The jeans are great. Actually every piece is great and the entire effect is fantastic!

  • Mo replied 6 years ago

    You're right, it is quintessentially 'you' and it's perfect.  And I hear you on squeezing out all the mid 70's weather you can!  I've been doing the same ;)

  • deb replied 6 years ago

    Love the jacket and jeans look. Uptown casual.

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    Killer to the power of Killer

    (this is my colour palette too - plus I'll throw in the white jeans). xo

  • Greyscale replied 6 years ago

    SO perfect with the cream boots. Glad you kept those!

  • Aida replied 6 years ago

    Love it, I'd happily wear it too! That clutch looks super.

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    Love the way you styled this!  You made the jacket your own and the overall effect is fresh and light and modern!

  • Elizabeth P replied 6 years ago

    No restaurant for miles! I missed your original post, but this is wonderful. The book ending with the booties makes it, IMHO.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Absolutely stunning, Denise. I LOVE cream on you, and you have nailed it with the jacket. No hint of "ladies who lunch" -- only a supremely cool and fashionable woman. 

  • Susie replied 6 years ago

    If that's a ladies who lunch look, let's all make a reservation! YLF in the cream and white and I love the booties.

  • Gigi replied 6 years ago

    Lovely! I really enjoy the colors you've combined here. 

  • Marmee replied 6 years ago

    I love this outfit.  The white and cream are great together, and I like the textures. Fabulous!

  • AJ replied 6 years ago

    Gah, "quintessentially you" is so effortlessly casual chic with a touch of boho and a touch of classic. You are the master cool-chic-denim-outfit-builder!

  • CocoLion replied 6 years ago

    Thank you all!  And Angie, thanks for the k-power rating.  I must admit the light footwear with dark pants is quintessentially Angie!  

    I didn't actually break down why this felt right to me, but I like what you wrote AJ -- casual chic with a touch of boho and a touch of classic.  That is a realm that feels comfortable to me.  The casual speaks to where I live, the Boho is who I was, the classic is who I am becoming.   I think the touch of classic just feels right as I get older, it seems elegant and necessary.

  • Adelfa replied 6 years ago

    Truly lovely.

  • Ingunn replied 6 years ago

    I'm joining the choir :) You look stunning in this outfit. Chic, elegant and relaxed. I can easily imagine you at a table in a French cafe in this.

  • lyn67 replied 6 years ago

    Soooo beautiful!

  • Aubergine replied 6 years ago

    Love this! I could see how that jacket could look a little prissy in a different outfit, but here it just adds a touch of elegance.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    No ladies who lunch in this outfit Denise - much too cool for that! And you've given me a fab idea on how to wear my Chanel-esque jacket. Love the light color palette with the jeans. So fab!

  • leopardluxe replied 6 years ago

    Fantastic outfit and I love the light color palette as a nod to Spring and warm weather. I love how you took the ladies who lunch jacket and styled it down with the jeans and casual bag and booties --giving it more of an intentionally edgy vibe. The whole ensemble looks fantastic on you!

  • jackiec replied 6 years ago

    Love this! I am new to posting but have been reading for quite awhile. You are one of my style icons!!!

  • viva replied 6 years ago

    Absolutely love this. The chicness of the jacket with the boho of the clutch just sent me over the top! Fabulous.

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    Fabulous! I like the cream with white and covet those booties. Definitely not ladies-who-lunch.

  • karymk replied 6 years ago

    Oh yeah I'd lunch in this! and you should too! At a hip, see and be seen place like Urth Cafe on Melrose in BH!!!!! You look amazing.  Your quintessential is my quintessential.  My style twin for sure!

  • crutcher replied 6 years ago

    Cream and white are the perfect combination...with the gold sunnies and belt...You really rock the look...No ladies who lunch in this one...Enjoy you look great...

  • neonginger replied 6 years ago

    Your look is very hip and you rock that jacket!

  • Kiwichik replied 6 years ago

    I like how you've styled the jacket - YLF

  • rae replied 6 years ago

    Oooh, I am jealous of how nicely you put all those white shades together! So, so pretty with your blonde hair. Enjoy that weather - I hope it lasts longer so we can continue to enjoy your "glut." ;)
