Light blue and brown and K/R questions

After reading Angie’s blog post today and wanting feedback on some new items, I came up with today’s outfit which combines some light blue and brown ( although it looks black in photos)
The floral top and brown EF pants and rather grey/ brown loafers are new with tags and I’d love your feedback on these items and possible styling ideas. Does this outfit even work?
The light blue EF linen cardi is an old piece which works well in cool weather that warms up during the day. (Does it look dated?) The pants? Do they look ok? The floral top I picked up to wear with olive and blush. ( photo 3 is a close up of the print) Is it too much on me? It is Calvin Klein and polyester, but I liked the structure of the welted bottom, although it does not show. It can be tucked in and possibly semi-tucked.
I would also like your thoughts on the grayish loafers in the last photos. They are Ugg driving Mocs but no fleece. They stay on and even have a good arch support in the correct position for my feet... a rare thing. I bought them thinking of house shoes/slippers but most end up becoming outdoor shoes eventually. (Photos 4&5).
I welcome your thoughts and styling ideas if I keep.

    I really like the simplicity of those Mocs I think that they would be versatile and if they are comfy too it’s a win win.I also like all the other pieces although I would be interested to see the floral top worn out and not tucked in,it looks like it wants to be set free !

    I love the top and agree with Cardiff girl, it is so beautiful . The shoes look comfortable and I like them . The outfit is great on you.

    Great score on the grey loafers ! They look good on your foot too. I have to admit I can't see colour very well on this monitor - or the photos are too dark. Not sure. Anyways - lovely floral top , which I agree with Cardiff would work well untucked too.

    The top is not tucked in the photo and I am wearing it out as it seemed short enough. The way the top is designed, it pulls the bottom against the body, giving a tucked look. It is not long and flowy. I am glad that you think the pieces are ok.

    Love the pleats on that top, and you wear it well.

    This looks good on you. Love those shoes, and I want to borrow that cardigan!

    I love the cardi ... Classic but not dated. Fantastic shoes!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    The photos below show the top tucked (1)and untucked(2). A quick semituck looked odd. I may need to play with that. I am so glad the cardi is not too dated. It is a summer workhorse for air conditioning and cool mornings and evenings. I have a matching EF pale blue silk shell top and like the combo with black, grey, olive or white or even denim

    FABULOUS both ways, Joy. 

    KILLER new loafers, and the floral is fresh and pretty.

    Thank you, Angie. The loafers were a bargain that can work out well for fall. I also looks at statement socks but did not buy any yet. I will wait too see how others are wearing them. Wearing socks is good. Showing them as part of an outfit is new territory. The floral reminds me of a Ted Baker floral and will be fun with olive jeans and utility pants to extend their seasons.

    As soon as I saw that floral I thought “that looks exactly like Ted Baker” lol. I don’t think the cardi is dated. Not a trend item but that’s fine. I really like the floral top. The loafers look good. The pants are difficult to judge on the monitor in terms of colour because they look like a very dark green, however the fit and proportions seem good.

    Thank you, Jussie. The color of the pants is difficult even in good light. It is sort of a greenish, grayed brown ( breen?). I am happy the fit of the pants looks ok and the loafers. The top reminds me of the NAS Ted Baker bag that I tried to order but they were sold out. The top is Calvin Klein from The Rack, purchased just a few days ago for anyone interested. The background color is a very pale blush.
