WIW: LOVE My New Pants, Shirt, Boots & Jacket

Fall has hit Seattle. Heavier NAS items are coming out to play, and new Boden items are getting a workout. 

This is WIW to work with a client today in grey and rainy Seattle - and walk Sam & do urban errands, accept that I changed into sneakers for that part. The citron ones to match the stripe!

LOVE MY NEW PANTS & SHIRT. I'm going to live in both. Perfect fits. Pants are lined, NAVY, and have a citron stripe! And the stripes of the plaid are matched at the seams. 

Have missed wearing button down shirts, and am back into them. 

LOVE my new Halogen jacket and J.Crew boots too. The boucle jacket is my version of the trendy long blazer. Red boots bookend my red specs. Easy! 

Three patterns in one outfit, because why not :)

All items beautifully made - even the Halogen. 

Feeling on trend in these updated proportions. New monogram necklace is a gift from a dear friend. I'm a lucky fish. 

And back to work....xo

    Angie, the way you put outfits together is magic to my eye.  Spectacular from head to toe!

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Midwesternchic, what a sweet thing to say. Thank you. 

  • DonnaF replied 1 year ago

    Love this look on you down to your yellow phone case! 

    Note to self: Just because Angie looks so spectacular in these items, remember that you are built quite differently, so it's a long shot that any one of them will fit. Inspiration, Donna, inspiration. And the joy of looking!

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    DonnaF, you crack me up. I appreciate the kind words!

  • shevia replied 1 year ago

    You are killing me! (My version of killer I guess :) ) How do you manage to do maximal, pretty, polished and cheeky ;) all at once? I am completely inspired. And gobsmacked!

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Jaime, you crack me up too - in the most charming and gracious way. You are lovely. 

  • christy replied 1 year ago

    SO CUTE!!!!!!! You are so fun and fearless with your style - maybe someday I’ll join you in your mastery of pattern mixing but until then I’ll continue to adore it on you. ;)

  • Kathie replied 1 year ago

    Love! Color, texture, pattern, shine! Inspiring and so much fun!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Angie, we all want to be you. You are such a styling genius and so cute.
    I love your fall outfits.

  • Eliza replied 1 year ago

    Angie- your sass is showing and I like it! Maximal mixing and so much joy. Remember the old pattern mixing “rules”? Hah hah. Thanks for sharing. Your hair, to borrow a phrase, is killer.

  • Jenn replied 1 year ago

    Angie, you look so modern and "of the moment!" You'd definitely turn my head if I passed you on the street.  

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Christy, you inspire us with YOUR style.

    Kathie, thanks for pointing out the CPTS. I hadn't noticed!

    Joy, no one wants to be me, but you're very sweet and generous. 

    Eliza, you are awfully gracious and eloquent as always. 

    Jenn, I'll take that as a compliment :)

  • Carla replied 1 year ago

  • Brooklyn replied 1 year ago

    Looking gorgeous and super glam!

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Carla, there are worse things than being surprised :) You are gracious as ever.

    Thanks, Brooklyn - and YOU are so glam!

  • Jane replied 1 year ago

    So perfect an outfit! Love the print of the shirt, the jacket and bag are utterly delicious.

  • The Cat replied 1 year ago

    Fresh and fun look. I like that even your phone case matches your great fall outfit.

  • bella replied 1 year ago

    Wow, what a great outfit. And your updated hair matches the vibe of this outfit perfectly! 

  • Cardiff girl replied 1 year ago

    Those red boots! and they are shiny! Im hyperventilating now.You look delicious.

  • Style Fan replied 1 year ago

    Great outfit!  Love the fun pattern mixing.

  • Jenni NZ replied 1 year ago

    Whoa this is amazing. Now please take this as a compliment too, because it is meant to be one- pic 3 has a rather Kim Kardashian-esqe booty on show! (Male members of YLF, except Greg, feel free to ignore this comment :) )

  • kkards replied 1 year ago

    the red boots are FAB and unexpected, which in retrospect makes them even fabber!

  • Bijou replied 1 year ago

    Absolute perfection - the fish and chips!!! Love all of this, but especially your fun shirt and boots.

  • Helena (Torontogirl) replied 1 year ago


  • RobinF replied 1 year ago

    Wow, super fun pattern mixing! I don't know how you do it but looks great!

  • anne replied 1 year ago

    You look wonderful Angie, and while I thought three patterns would be too much when reading the text, when I saw the photos I could see that it works.

  • lyn67 replied 1 year ago

    K2K, Angie &heavenly gorgeous!!!! But hah,-so true what Donna said: "Inspiration, (Katelyn), Inspiration. And the joy of looking!":-)

    ETA: But I have some glenn trousers and burgundy patent booties, too...:-))

  • kellygirl replied 1 year ago

    Totally delicious and playful, Angie! You are the master at putting together dynamic outfits--pattern, proportion. This is so pretty I can't stand it! Looking fab as always!!

  • suntiger replied 1 year ago

    So maximal- and your poses make me laugh! New wardrobe pet?

  • Preppy Pear replied 1 year ago

    This is a master class in pattern-mixing! I adore those pants and how much fun are the shirt, jacket and red boots? Thanks for the intel and showing these items in action. Your outfits and modeling are a joy.

  • lisa p replied 1 year ago

    Just LOVE this - so perfect for early fall!  Hair , jewellery (layered!) and accessories on point, as usual too.  And as Donna says, Lisa, remember, different bodies can wear different things, don't get confused ;)  

  • Inge replied 1 year ago

    Just a huge WOW all round!!-)
    The pattern mixing, the longer length blazer, those amazing trousers, the stunning and cheerful booties, the shirt, your hair and jewellery = AMAZING!!

  • always trying replied 1 year ago

    Those red boots and that plad jacket--WOW

  • DeAnna replied 1 year ago

    Wow you look gorgeous, superior pattern mixing.

  • Runcarla replied 1 year ago

    Cheerful and stylish. Love it all! Thanks for the inspo.

  • Sara L. replied 1 year ago

    What a fun outfit!  Also nice that you are getting to wear your new fall items already.  

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Oh my word, you’re all soooooo nice. THANK YOU for the awfully kind words. I’m blushing.

    Cardiff Girl, Jane & kkards, I see red boots in your future.

    Jenni NZ, a Kardashian attempt to showcase how the checks on my pants are perfectly matched :)

    Lyn67, Preppier Pear, Inge, Bijou, Robin F and Kelly, you are very gracious.

    Suntiger, wardrobe pets are bags :) - and it’s their. But no Sam this time. He was on guard downstairs. Much too busy to pose....

    Lisa P, I knew you’d notice my layered necklaces!

  • nemosmom replied 1 year ago

    You look amazing! Fun and fashion-forward. I envy your pattern mixing ability!

  • Mirjana replied 1 year ago

    The pants are beautiful on you, the outfit is magical, great pattern mix, texture, so maximal. You look amazing Angie, enjoy you new outfit.

  • Janet replied 1 year ago

    Master pattern mixer schools us all! :-D You are adorable, Angie. I love those pants and would wear them if I only had the bod (and the life) for them. I always admire how perfectly your clothes fit you -- you make everything look like it was tailor-made just for you. You look marvelous! 

  • Kyle replied 1 year ago

    Fabulously fab in every way. Your pattern mixing is inspiring...and the fit of each item is sublime.

  • texstyle replied 1 year ago

    Beautiful outfit all around - love the perfect fit of the pants and blouse on you, so fantastic!

  • bonnie replied 1 year ago

    I love this outfit. Thanks for sharing the photos that show the process of putting it together. I'm taking note of the perfect pant length for the fab boots. 

  • Christina F. replied 1 year ago

    Amazeballs!!! You've never looked better.

  • Suz replied 1 year ago

    Angie, I'm so slow here (life intervening) but WOWZA!!!! You look absolutely spectacular in this adorable and fun outfit! LOVE the mix of plaids and really love the Boden pants. I think I'm going to need to order a pair. Only question is which colourway because I love them both! The pair you have with the mustard would be a nice complement to my new bag. But the pair with the fuchsia would make a sort of "suit" with my hot pink jacket! 

    This is so much fun with the mix of plaids, textures, the shine of the boots (cute!!!) and your specs. Also, your hair is gorgeous. 

  • Kaelyn replied 1 year ago

    Wow--I love the red glasses (fun!) and boots together, your hair style, and that amazing plaid coat.  Enjoy fall for me--I'm in Atlanta, where our seasons are "endless summer" and "oh no, there's ice on the roads and the world is ending!"  ;-)

  • Katerina replied 1 year ago

    You look gorgeous Angie! This is my favourite of all your outfits I think. I love the silhouette, and the pattern mixing and the colours are just beautiful. Maximal perfection and so joyful. 

  • Sal replied 1 year ago

    What a great happy stylish look. I love love love those pants on you. And the blouse.

    Great autumn look!!

  • Vicki replied 1 year ago

    Oh my goodness, I love them all, every piece, because they’re classic, they are modern, they’re fun and each displays the amazing personality you have. I’m so happy everything is working for you and the photos are stunning.

  • Glory replied 1 year ago

    Gorgeous but also so darn cute ... made me laugh with some of those sassy poses .

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    THANK YOU, for the awfully kind compliments. My word. Quite unexpected! 

    Janet, that was a very gracious comment :)

    Suz, get the pink stripe! I think you'll love them. The "mustard" stripe is more citron, actually. 

  • Joyce B replied 1 year ago

    What a fab and fun look! Your hair looks fab as well.

  • JAileen replied 1 year ago

    I love your pattern mixing. Totally fab!

  • Column replied 1 year ago

    All pieces together are really stunning, Angie. No one does red accents better than you! Your hair is beautiful, too.

  • Chris987 replied 1 year ago

    Wow! What a stunning outfit! You look absolutely GORGEOUS!  Janet was so right..."master pattern mixer schools us all". I am usually not crazy about maximalism, but pattern mixing like this totally changes my mind.

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, ladies. I'm smiling, and loving my new stuff! I'm grateful and feel blessed. 

  • suntiger replied 1 year ago

    Haha I meant the navy Furla! Not your 4 legged wardrobe pet :)

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Okay :)

    Not new - a few years old, actually.

  • Jane replied 1 year ago

    And now you’ve planted the seed, I am thinking! Red sneaks for sure...

  • Laura replied 1 year ago

    Maximal poses for the WIN. Happy for you and your killer new loot!

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    Jane, YES. Get red sneaks :)

    Laura, as my '80s sister, I except to see you in more '80s proportions too!

  • smittie replied 1 year ago

    Fun and dressy, just like you. 
    Great shirt!

  • mtnsofthemoon replied 1 year ago

    Spectacular ensemble!  You finally found red boots - yipee!!  But the poses are the best!  You are having too much fun and enjoying your wardrobe to the MAX (pun intended).  Thanks as always for sharing and inspiring!  

  • MsMary replied 1 year ago
