White out with blue suede booties

White out with blue suede booties | 40plusstyle.com

When I spotted these fabulous booties in the sale at SjoeShoes in my native town of Nijmegen, I knew the perfect outfit to wear with them. I really wanted to let them shine by going all white.


This tunic has been a favorite since I first showed it to you and it’s proving to be a great versatile piece for the ever changing Dutch climate. The material is all natural cotton so never too hot but still covered enough for a slight chill. It’s easy to layer with a jacket too if more warmth is needed.


The suede booties are from Aura by Lodi, one of 3 new shoe brands I discovered (more on the other 2 in later articles). They are light because of the perforated sides and I love the color.


I prefer this look with my fab booties but of course I was smart enough to take my flats too for a shopping day!


The textured bag is from Cos and I was attracted to it because of the light weigh and easy portability. You can also use it as a backpack which is really convenient for travelling.


Outfit details:

Top: Stella Carakasi
Pants: Zara
Booties: Aura by Lodi (cannot find them online)
Necklace: In Good Company
Sunglasses: Loewe
Bag: Cos

I love the all white outfit with bits of blue in the necklace and boots. The hi low top is magnificent. This whole outfit is so appealing and flattering on you. This is a look I will try with pieces in my wardrobe.

Thanks Karen. Yes I was pretty please with it myself. Will definitely repeat it! I hope you will show us how you wear it.

Ha, ha you got there before me, fellow bootie lover! I knew you’d loved these booties. They’re wonderful, aren’t they?

9 Sylvia

Would look good in your wardrobe too I’m sure!

All white can be difficult to pull off but you’ve absolutely nailed it. The layers of the top give texture and depth and the slim line ankle trousers balance out the top. And you have the height to carry off that amazing top. Then there’s the added visual interest of the pattern of the bag, the unusual necklace and those fabulous, oh so fabulous suede boots (another lovely texture).

I think you explained very well why this outfit works so well. I must remember this. Thanks.

12 Petite Silver Vixen (@petitevix)

Thanks Greetje, kind of you to say that.

13 Sylvia

Thanks. Yes I agree that it’s a combination of all these that makes it great.

14 Elaine

Love the booties! I have been scouring on line shopping sites looking for a pair. The all white outfit is a perfect foundation for fun accessories.

15 Sylvia

Thanks. Yes. One reason I’m so attracted to white!

17 Sylvia

Thanks Jodie!

18 Glenda

Perfection Sylvia. I love this look, and how the blue booties add that extra edge and touch of 60s nostalgia.

19 Sylvia

Thanks Glenda. I had not even thought of that resemblance but I like it!

You look great in white – and I love the boots and the lighter “shopping” sandals 🙂 When you find a pair of shoes that you love Sylvia, do you know at the time if they go with everything or do you buy clothes to go with them? I see lots of nice shoes that I like but they wouldn’t go with a thing in my closet! 😀

21 Sylvia

I always think of something I already have that I can wear the shoes with. I never buy shoes and then buy something for it. These booties are more challenging for my wardrobe, but I immediately thought of all my white clothes and how it would fabulous with those.

22 Greetje

As you know I think is a lovely ensemble. Really well styled. Petite Silver Vixen explained the theory behind it very well. You do this instintively, I need the lessons haha.

23 Sylvia

Well, I think you have all the ingredients in your wardrobe to pull of a similar look Greetje!

24 Angie

Those shoes are a stunner. The tunic is very figure friendly. Great piece!

I have to say this outfit is fabulous, white being my favorite color to wear I am a little bias, but adding the vibrant splash with the boots bag and necklace is a wonderful contrast.

27 Sylvia

Thanks Arlene. White is such a beautiful canvas!

28 Madame Hall

Ohhhhh! how I wish I could still wear white……Rural India is just not suited to it unfortunately! But, those boots are divine and I’d be crazy for them worn with one of my shabby chic indigo Signature Skirts……Way to go!

29 Sylvia

Thanks so much!
