WIW: a short reprieve between my travels

I am sorry for being mostly absent on the forum these days. We came back from our Cuban vacation (it ws great but so hard to return from +30C to -12C).
i had 3 work days (and of course they were crazy as hell as stuff piled up while I was away), then a full YLF meetup day in Toronto and I am leaving on business trip tomorrow morning (and then to Boston - yay!) It all feels like a whirlwind and I can hardly catch a breath...
... but I managed to take pictures of my work outfits and here they are :-0

pic 1 I think this is the last time I am wearing these cream trousers now - they are getting to big and need to be altered. The sweater color is blushy-beige, it does not photograph well. I SOOO desperately need new refined black booties! :-(
Cream slouchy trousers - BR
Cashmere sweater - JCrew
Danier satchel
Clarks black booties

pic 2 - 3 Another almost white outfit - inspired by my tropical vacation and in defiance of Canadian  endless winter. Could not resist to add a picture with my midi man coat :-)
Black man coat and tote - Danier
Cream t-neck - BR
Cream / black color-blocked dress - Winners
Chestnut booties - Vaneli

pic 4-5 Swinging from white to black here. I wanted to wear my cobalt moto and black is my favorite pairing with cobalt. I especially like how this "fluid" fit moto looks from the side - see pic 4.
Cobalt wool moto - Gap
Black skinny martin trousers - BR
Black t-neck - BR
Silver tote - Danier

pic 6 - 8 Bonus shots from my vacation - I want to go back right now!

Thank you for looking and please excuse in advance for not replying to comments tomorrow: I am travelling since early morning and going directly to work from the airport. It is going to be a busy week for me!

    I hope you can find new white trousers, because I adore #1. 

    #4-5 are great too.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Fab outfits and the trip looks amazing. Sveta, also, you looked INCREDIBLE at the meet up -- I was completely over the moon about the skirt and sweater outfit. wow. 

    Good luck travelling, and see you very soon!  :)

  • shevia replied 6 years ago

    Just stunning Sveta. You make that Gap moto look like a million bucks and the cream outfit is absolutely gorgeous!

  • Day Vies replied 6 years ago

    I love the white out and the slouchy fit of the trousers. The sweater is especially compelling. I think I like that it has structure despite being a sweater.  The cobalt moto with the metallic tote is fantastic! I so want to be on a beach some where. Right now it would be nice just to have consistent temps over 50 degrees!  Glad you had a wonderful trip.

    What Anna said. You look fantastic :)

  • rae replied 6 years ago

    You look so stunning in white and cream - hopefully you will always have a pair of cream pants!

  • replied 6 years ago

    You do look great.

  • Inge replied 6 years ago

    I second what Rae said about the cream trousers :-)
    Look at you all tanned!-) I absolutely love all three outfits, Sveta (and yay again for finding that fab man coat;-) Modern, elegant and statuesque, I continue to take notes!

    Cuba sounds wonderful, and I can imagine you want to fly back stat, thanks so much for sharing your holiday pics.

  • lyn67 replied 6 years ago

    Always love your well put together and polished to max outfits, Sveta, but Oh, that 6th pictie is TDF! Did you spent your holidays with your Mum and DAuntie in Cuba? Have a good week back at work even if stressfull!:-)

  • Ingunn replied 6 years ago

    Yes, cream and black is gorgeous on you, Sveta. I adore all the outfits, so fab each in it's own way. The vacation looks spectacular, too. Enjoy your travels!

  • Elizabeth P replied 6 years ago

    So glad you popped in to show us some of your WYW's.  And I echo the others, you HAVE to find new cream trousers. 

    Happy travels!

  • merwoman replied 6 years ago

    Stunning Sveta!  That gorgeous sweater in pic 1 reminds me of the AT shirt you tried on  - hope you pull the trigger on it!

  • Neel replied 6 years ago

    Another fan of outfit 1! Love that sweater on you! And gorgeous sunny pics of Cuba!

  • Lisa replied 6 years ago

    Great outfits, and the vacation looks lovely.  Safe traveling!

  • texstyle replied 6 years ago

    What shevia said :-).

  • BethL replied 6 years ago

    Oh my goodness. Smashing and elegant. I'm with Anna about #1.

  • Parsley replied 6 years ago

    What striking outfits, Sveta!
    I agree that you must have a pair of cream colored pants in your wardrobe, whether you alter these or replace them. Your head-to-toe light colored outfit is so dramatic on you.
    I adore the black outfit with the cobalt jacket, too- you are made for bold dramatic looks like that. Beautiful!
    I sympathize with the difficulty of returning to wintry weather after a tropical vacation. I'm so happy you had a great trip!

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    Sveta, you look like a professional model. It's really hard to pick a favorite out of this stellar grouping, but I think it's the cobalt and black with #1 a close second.

  • Marmee replied 6 years ago

    So excellent!  I love that cobalt.  And the beach looks fabulous.

  • AJ replied 6 years ago

    Well look at you, gorgeous, tanned, jet setter! These outfits showcase your tan so nicely. Can't pick a fave because I like all three.

    Safe travels and so jealous you get to see dear Angie on Saturday! What a great way to end these busy days.

  • Kiwichik replied 6 years ago

    Great outfits - love the dress and the cobalt moto is spectacular. Looking at your vacation photos I can see why you want to go back.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    You can do no wrong Sveta! And you definitely need cream trousers in your wardrobe - you wear them with such panache.

  • Karie replied 6 years ago

    In spite of your busy schedule, you have managed to look totally gorgeous. I love the white outfits, but my fav is #4/5. Can't wait to see your fabulous style in person in Boston!

  • rachylou replied 6 years ago

    You are just cruising along in high style, Sveta!

  • MsMaven replied 6 years ago

    You look absolutely gorgeous in the black and cobalt--my favorite.  

  • Jeanie replied 6 years ago

    Love you in cream and black. Just gorgeous outfits. Cute vacation outfit too!

  • Lyn D. replied 6 years ago

    You look like a model in your Vacation pics Sveta- I want to be there too :)
