WIW: white out

This is a rather casual white denim dress with pale grey espedrilles and three different toppers for a day that could reach 90F but is too cool this morning for bare arms. Which topper do you like best.,, vest, denim jacket or long pale grey cardi? Bonus photo of latest snow. We ended up with about 6 inches. Are the espadrilles ok? I am thinking of changing into white booties before going out.

    IS IT SNOWING?? :(

    Snow?? I’m not going to complain anymore about our weather.
    Joy all toppers are fabulous on you. I think it really depends on the weather. You’ve got great arms and rock the vest. I think I have a wee preference for the long sleeve sweater compared to the denim jacket, has a bit more elegance to it, but all are super.

    KILLER looks all round! You look beautifully Italian, Joy.

    The way you mixed the whites is masterful! And absolutely gorgeous with your hair :)

    Angie, we have had a late snow this year when people thought it was safe to plant. It took down lots of tree branches with the weight. It happened just a couple of days ago. They say do not plant outside until June. We needed the moisture to help prevent more fires. Now most of the snow is gone but it is still cold and rainy. I run cold anyway.

    Snow in may??  And I was complaining because it was raining today 

    Love them all, but #3 is my favorite

    I love snow! It's so pretty. 

    All of your outfits look lovely!

    They are all really good, but I adore the vest outfit! Sassy and flattering. I am coming to your state soon for the summer, and I sure hope the snow is done!

    I love this dress on you, Joy!! And really like all three toppers. The espadrilles work great too, I especially like how they seem to pick up the colour of the cardigan. But the white booties will be fab as well. Such a fun bag too.

    Snow!! Oh wow!!

    Wow dress! Wow snow! :o

    I like the cardigan with the espadrilles because they match!

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    So far today I have worn all the toppers.  ChristelJ, I hope you do not have snow but you will if you go to the mountains.  Late skiing is being predicted.  Last year there were trails in Rocky Mountain NP that were ice covered in June, like Bear Lake.  We could not walk around the lake.
    Sprague Lake still had some ice too.  They try to clear the road that goes through the pass in the mountains but sometimes there is a huge wall of snow.  Be ready for anything.  The sun can be so hot but with cloud cover and wind, one gets cold quickly..
    Thank you, Angie.  I am enjoying whites and added some new pieces.  I will need to replace white loafers and get new white espedrilles, something I just need new every year.  My white sneakers can take another summer.  They get too warm for the hottest times.

    Snow??Thats mad!I was moaning about it being cold here you ve just put it into perspective for me.l like both toppers a lot but l think the grey just edges it for me because it has sleeves and is therefore warmer.

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you, Cardiff girl,  you are right, the pale grey cardigan was the warmest topper.  

  • slim cat replied 2 years ago

    Great looks all around - fab collection of toppers!
    Haven't seen snow in a long time - wow!

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you, slim cat.  I use toppers a lot all year as the temperature can very a lot during the day.  That photo was taken at the very beginning of the snow. 

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 2 years ago

    These are all fantastic outfits. Glad you had a chance to wear all three toppers--haha! You do white-out  beautifully!
    I can't fathom going from snow to 90 degrees in a short time. Good grief.

  • Runcarla replied 2 years ago

    Beautiful!  You are providing lots of ideas on how I might style my denim dress.  :-)

  • Lana replied 2 years ago

    Gosh I love them all!  The gray duster looks luxe with the white  

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you, Sharan, Runcarla and Lana,  sharan, as your hair gets whiter, you find yourself wearing more white.  Runcarla, I hope to see the way you style your white denim dress.  I bought this one inspired by you.  Lana, it is hard to stick with just white for that reason.  I like it but I also like a little contrast.

    Snow?! I like the vest and jacket and you look amazing in white!

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you ,Jamie. The white vest and jacket get lots of wear.  I have a shorter white jean jacket for wearing with dresses.

    Beautiful collection of white on white outfits and they look so chacon you, Joy! Sorry about snow, though. That's not a desirable white out to have in May.

  • lyn67 replied 2 years ago

    Ajh, Joy, our whites in and out(pun intended!:-))are just beautiful!

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you,Carol and lyn67.  I needed your kind words this morning as my son and family are reconsidering a camping trip to Great Sand Dunes because of the cold and possible rain.  The little grandchildren were looking forward to this trip.
