WIW: White and citron to match a sunny day

I missed taking pictures of outfits from the first part of the week so I decided to post this one before I completely forget.
Today was a rare dry and sunny spring day, albeit a cool one so I grasped at the opportunity to wear flared jeans or pants. I turned to Angie's ensembles for inspiration and this grey, white and citron one was just the thing!
I have these wide leg sailor trousers for 4th year now and they begin to show their age so I may retire them next season. On the other hand as they became a bit big for me they became more fluid in fit so I can enjoy them a bit differently this year :-)
The next was the footwear. The ensemble post says:
<<Footwear: You’re after light coloured shoes in a shade of white, beige, nude, light grey or silver. Pewter, dark grey and gold work pretty well too. >>
Well, all my light colored shoes and booties have heels too low for those trousers...but then I remembered these animal print ones. Ideally I would prefer them to have almond toes but a girl has to make do with what she has, right? :-)
The rest was easy: white leather moto and citron sweater to match the formula. Off white studded belt was another no brainer here and silver tote was a must as I had a yoga class tonight. 
It felt fresh and spring-like - and warm enough for a chilly morning. Aside from the citron sweater everything else is from the last year or older but  still I hope it is "2014" in spirit :-)...but if not I am all ears for critique and suggestions!

JCrew merino Tippi sweater
Long Tall Sally sailor trousers

  • Debra replied 6 years ago

    Yo look fabulous, I love both the shapes and colours :)

  • Golden replied 6 years ago

    Very cute outfit, I tend to forget about my animal print shoes too and they do go with almost everything!

  • Kiwichik replied 6 years ago

    You really make those wide leg pants look great and love the slouchy ease of the trousers and citron top.

  • shevia replied 6 years ago

    The colors are beautiful on you. Love the citron with white leather jacket and the trousers work perfectly with them.

    Really pretty look, Sveta!

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    Great look for spring, Sveta!  And, of course, I love the Danier!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    Well done! This looks lovely on you Sveta.

  • Aida replied 6 years ago

    You so rock this silhouette Sveta. So fab! I have to say, this particular type of wide leg fit is how I like to wear mine best. Definitely enjoy it while it's in!

  • Karie replied 6 years ago

    I love the white and citron - so springy! Those wide leg pants are perfect for you.

  • MsLuna replied 6 years ago

    Sveta, it's so lovely to see your outfits again (I haven't been on YLF for a while). Love this outfit!

  • Inge replied 6 years ago

    Love this, Sveta, perfect from head to toe. And yay for citron with white!-)

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Beautiful! You look very springlike indeed and the shoes do not spoil it for me in the least. Proving that there may be such a concept as Just Current Enough. Having one or two very current looking items in an outfit may be all that is required to make it seem 2014. Waving at my jacket twin! 

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    A colour combo after my own heart, Svetlana. You look gorgeously elegant, chic and modern. xo

  • catgirl replied 6 years ago

    One of my very favorite colors put to good use! You look beautiful.

  • lyn67 replied 6 years ago

    Effortless chic put together from fawless pieces! Love the color scheme, and  YLF, as always, Sveta!:-)

  • Lisa replied 6 years ago

    The citron makes this outfit sing spring, a lovely shade on you. 

  • JenA replied 6 years ago

    This is such a modern, chic look. I really like these colors on you. 

  • jackiec replied 6 years ago

    So fresh and springlike, modern & current :)

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    Thank you ladies for the kind words. We woke up to a overcast and rainy day this morning so that spring sunshine did not last long...but at least there is no snow in sight anymore si we should not complain, right? :-)

  • Day Vies replied 6 years ago

    I never get tired of this color combination. This is perfect for a sunny spring day.

  • Vix replied 6 years ago

    Hi Sveta --

    Catching your spring outfits here and there without time to comment, so please consider this a global "You look wonderful and fresh" plus or minus modifiers like elegant, chic, stylish, confident etc!

    I especially love the repeated lighter tones (jacket/belt/shoes) here.

  • rae replied 6 years ago

    Wonderful, and the jacket looks so comfy!

  • unfrumped replied 6 years ago

    A perfect rendition!

  • sinead replied 6 years ago

    This is such a beautiful outfit on you! I want to try to put together a similar combo with what I have- this chic, flowing look is exactly the style I'm after.
