Wearing white to blend in with the snow

I thought I'd try to link to Angie's post today with my WIW because it inspired me to pull out the cream jeans. This for a very cold day with lots of snow on the ground.
Jeans: BR
Pullover: Gap
Vest: Cache (thrifted)
Boots: SE pythons over cream Smart Wool socks
Scarf: Target cashmere
Belt: Nordstrom Rack
Is this too OTT? Is the hoody puffer vest too young for a senior citizen? This is this year's Gap sweater. Does it look too short here? I welcome your opinions and suggestions for improvement.
1/2 with scarf; 3 is without. I ended up needing it indoors for warmth.

    Joy, I think this outfit is just lovely.  The vest is fine, and for the record I don't think of you as a senior citizen :)  Just a very elegant lady.  I personally wouldn't mind the sweater being a tad longer but this is the current length and it works just great (and you don't have a tummy to hide like I do). Just gorgeous.

    Thank you for being so kind, Deborah. Last years Gap chunky pullover is longer but in the laundry. I will have to try it.

    Very cute snow bunny look.

    I love the textures in this outfit! I don't think anything about this outfit looks too young at all! Elegance top to toe :)

    This outfit is awesome Joy!!   Not at all OTT and the vest is perfect.

    Lovely Joy!
    It is not so much a 'Hoodie' as a hooded jacket to my eye and looks great.

    Joy, this is cream-on-cream perfection! Great fit and beautiful textures! I wished I looked like this when I hit the snow fields! Hmmm...... must take notes.....

  • Debra replied 4 years ago

    I love the way you have all of these gorgeous creams working together.
    Looking good :)

    You look wonderful Joy. Those boots with their hint of pewter are a magical key that unlocks the beauty of the creamy whites.

    I just love this. The creams are gorgeous. You sure dont look like a senior citizen.

  • shevia replied 4 years ago

    You look great in the whites and I don't notice anything looking too short of inappropriate at all.

  • Sarah A replied 4 years ago

    Joy, you are a vision in these shades. I think the fur trim on the hood is esp. fun and luxe. Nothing inappropriate to my eye just a fantastic whiteout look the compliments your skin and hair beautifully.

  • O replied 4 years ago

    I think this look is very you. You look divine.

  • Aubergine replied 4 years ago

    This looks so wonderful with your coloring, and not too young at all! I love how you incorporated so many different textures to keep things interesting.

    Joy, you've totally spawned my quest for cream corduroy bottoms!  Love the elegance and drama of this.

  • El Cee replied 4 years ago

    I love your Winter Whiteout ensemble. The puffer vest is adorable! (Not too young -- just fun and on trend). You look lovely in cream.

  • san replied 4 years ago

    I love this!  It is a fun look and has nothing to do with S-C.  You look great and totally appropriate.  Your hair color goes right along with the theme!  Perfect!

    Adore this tonal white outfit on you Joy and I really like the various textural elements with the sweater, vest and python booties.

  • carambola replied 4 years ago

    You always look elegant and stylish and this outfit is no exception. Love it.

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    That's what I like to see and hear, you Winter White Beauty. Not OTT. You are a gorgeous snow bunny.  xo

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    Thank you each for your sweet comments. Angie, you have given me the confidence to wear so many things I'd never have tried on my own. Fun with fashion continues ;)

  • Marmee replied 4 years ago

    I love this.  It's elegant and interesting, and looks great on you, regardless of your age.

    Beautiful! You are so stunning in this look.
