WIW: Column of White

Inspired by Angie’s column of white blog topic, I offer these 3 outfits worn in the last few days. They are not strictly her examples, but I still plan a summer version of white and oatmeal.
1/2: Gap wide crops, a white tank, EF Soft white blouse over that, gifted white lace scarf, cream Cole Haan athletic flats.
3-5: I have no white dresses so this is as close as I got. EF 2-piece striped dress worn casually with AGL cream sneakers and tassel earrings. I may try again with a white denim skirt but black accessories will not bookend my hair.
6/7: AT cropped white pants, EF long bone vest over thrifted cream sheer tee over white tank. consignment casual faux pearl necklace on cognac leather, perforated leather ballet flats

    You look as good in white as you do in black,love the tasselled earrings and the #1 outfit is my favourite.

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    GORGEOUS all round, Joy. I love a column of white with your hair. 

    Try the oxfords in outfit #2 with outfit #1. STUNNING casual pearl necklace.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Cardiff girl and Angie. I am wearing the striped 2piece dress today to go with DH to doctor's offices appointments. I am chauffeur for awhile until he is released to drive again.
    Angie, I like wearing white because of my hair. Cardiff girl, these earrings are fun to wear.

    Liesbeth, Rachylou and Jane, thank you for your kind comments.

    Oops, Mainelady, we must have cross posted. I love that scarf especially for the texture and bit of pretty it can add to a plain outfit.

    Thank you, Linda and mtnsofthemoon. I thought of Angie when I saw that necklace. Now I need to find some flats to bookend it.

    White with your hair is just extrordinary, Joy. These are all great outfits and what fun jewellery.

  • 3style replied 1 year ago

    Joy I’m very impressed with your outfits. Cropped white jeans or pants with white shoes can so easily veer into “American tourists without a clue” category, but you put It all together and make them look very elegant.

  • Brooklyn replied 1 year ago

    Casually elegant. You wear white so well.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Kkards, Suz, 3style and Brooklyn. You have encouraged me to continue to wear these outfits and look fir more ways to wear summer white. I need to look for more summer textures in shades of white...eyelet, patent, white on white patterns and embroidery, white lace and mesh tops, and a white dress or the 2-piece equivalent.

    White is your friend! Fabulous, all three versions.

  • delurked replied 1 year ago

    I’m really liking your shades of white with cream. It looks fresh. I would love to recreate, but don’t really have any cream in my wardrobe. However, you’ve inspired me to put on something white tomorrow.

  • Bijou replied 1 year ago

    Joy, you have the most beautiful hair and the column of white suits you to perfection. You look cool, elegant and breezy. So fresh and lovely for a warm summers day. I cannot pick a favourite. I also love the modern pearl necklace.

  • Mirjana replied 1 year ago

    Great as usual Joy, white suits you perfect with your hair. I especially like #1. Lovely jewellery.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Delurked, I'm thrilled to have inspired you to wear white. If a shade does not work for you, keep trying other shades or wear several at the same time.
    Diana, Bijou, and Mirjana, thank you for your encouragement.

  • unfrumped replied 1 year ago

    All great! Love # 1 and also, those oxfords are fab. Try same skirt with a cream top?

  • kellygirl replied 1 year ago

    Terrific white outfits, Joy. I especially like the crops with the scarf. So pretty!

  • Katerina replied 1 year ago
