Simple outfit with high rise wide pants and welted sweater

A neutrals outfit . Does this work on me? Worn to daily Mass and out shopping. Outside I put my olive jacket over all. Bag is a simple black back-saver leather bag/backpack. I used a smaller animal print cross-body for church. Bonus: bald eagle on top of church. Not a good photo with my old iPhone. Last photo is with scarf added.

    Love your version of Angie's Simple Outfit. The Bald Eagle photo is great, too.

    I think it works well and aww eagle! Just noticed your background-is that a shower with 4 taps?

    Great version of the blog outfit! I like the longer jacket, too!

    Thank you, Kathy, Suntiger, and Bonnie. I wish I had a better photo of the eagle. It was magnificent. Today there was a dove in its place.
    Suntiger, the shower has two shower heads and each has its own tap. It is a cleverly designed walk in shower. See photos of faucets and inside shower below. We may try to convert it to a steam shower but the one in the basement is a better candidate.
    Kathie the jacket is from Eileen Fisher in her signature knit. It is not recent, but I think there is a newer more cutaway version.

    Love the crops on you! Crazy to see that eagle like that too!

    Thank you, Shevia. The eagle was probably watching for wild rabbits or prairie dogs for its breakfast.

    Beautiful! You ROCK those pants!

  • RobinF replied 1 year ago

    Great outfit, love the neutrals together.

    Aren't eagles amazing? We saw a lot when we were in Alaska and I couldn't stop trying to get the perfect photo.

    Really good on you , Joy.  You've got the pant length down pat.  

  • Adriana replied 1 year ago

    I like your outfit, especially the color combination with your shoes. I am struggling with the lenght of these wide cropped trousers.

  • Mirjana replied 1 year ago

    Beautiful Joy, you did it perfect as usual. Nice picture with eagle!

  • JAileen replied 1 year ago

    I really like your outfit. Your photo of the eagle is great! So many people never look up.

  • smittie replied 1 year ago

    Completely works, Joy!
    Love the wide legs and the jacket. You wear these items extremely well!

    Great look!  I love the cute metallic sneakers.  Nice picture of the bald eagle.

    FABULOUS. Nailed it, and a beautiful eagle.

    Cool pic of the eagle. Must have been amazing to see. I like your outfit too. I think you carry it off well. I think shoe selection with wide crops is tricky.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you all for your encouragement. JAileen this morning I saw my first red-winged blackbird of the season. They seem to be early this year or maybe winter is long. The poor bird was singing above a frozen pond.
    I am glad the length of these wide crops looks ok. My other pair should probably be shortened for summer.

  • ChristelJ replied 1 year ago

    I really love the color combo. Also the contrast between the somber jacket and the festive footwear and fun crops.

  • Firecracker replied 1 year ago

    Super cool outift, Joy. I love the metallic sneakers with it. And how neat, to see a bald eagle one day and a dove there the next!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, ChristelJ and Firecracker. It seems the silver sneakers were a good choice. They also worked well for my day
