WIW: Inspired by Angie's choices for her mum

Angie's blog post moved me and I shopped my closet to find something that was similar to her ensemble for her mother. White jeans ( these are Diana skinnies) rolled to 4 inches above the ankle bone, Silk blue floral top worn out. Tan Fossil belt and ostrich skin textured leather bag, not pictured. Low heeled tan/nude pumps in first 2 photos changed to espadrilles ( gold fabric with tan ankle strap) for a more casual look for a meeting. A bunch of my real gold jewelry, including a coin pendant from Hong Kong, and gold tone MK watch.
Angie, I hope you approve. I am not much younger than your mother would have been and love your picks. I'm sure that your mother does too.

    This Is stunning on you, Joy! The white top is so fresh against white of the jeans.

    Killer. You look Casually Chic. 

    I am SO touched. My Mum would have worn this exact outfit with an earth toned top. Your comment on my post this morning made my eyes water, Joy. Bless your heart.

    Gorgeous.  I love the way the bright colors of the top POP against the white jeans.

    Oh I love the contrast of the bold blue and white. Definitely a lovely casual chic look that suits you very much. A thoughtful compliment to Angie & her mother.

    It IS stunning on you - and you rock those white jeans like nobody's business. I love your classic look .

    That top is gorgeous on you! It looks perfect with the white jeans.

  • Firecracker replied 3 years ago

    Very pretty, Joy. I love the low-heeled pumps with the boyfriend jeans. And that top is the picture of summer!

    What a pretty blouse, what a fabulous pattern. I think you did very well. Great look.

    I just realized that I'd not commented on this thread.
    Tanya, Diana, Deb and Karie. I like this top best with white bottoms. Thank you for the validation.
    Angie, a Killer! This will be a favorite fall back outfit. When I was younger I wire mostly earth tones and maybe should give them a try again. Your affection for your mother is touching and appreciated by those old enough to be your mother :).
    Kiwigal, and Caro, thank you. I need to add more blue to my wardrobe.
    Suz, your comment touched me. I could easily see you wearing the same thing.
    Lisa, I appreciate that you think I can wear these white jeans. Pre-YLF I had NO jeans, let alone white.
    Firecracker and No Fear, thank you. This blouse is definitely a favorite for summer..my favorite type of print these days in favorite colors and it covers my arms without feeling hot.
