Sept 24th - Outfit #23 - Tones of Teal and Turquoise (and Tights!)

Before I forget, thank you so much to the very sweet Megan of MMD for the card and buttonflower! 
Oxblood, dots and a kitty on the card - so me. Thank you, sweetie.

Onward! When I got around to September's capsule, I was a little afraid of what the heck I was going to do with this turquoise skirt.
I'm quite happy with how nicely it goes with the teal cardigan and shoes!

I last wore the skirt here, the cardi here and the shoes here.

As it seems to have suddenly become autumnal outside, time for tights! These are a pair I picked up on clearance at the Gap way back in June for $4.95 (regular $14.95). I liked the grey texture, so matched up my Shi Studio leather belt.
I have a black cami on as well as my black leather cuff and black stone earrings.

Outerwear! The lovely aforementioned Megan found this and sent it to me back in July - it's finally cool enough to wear it.
Got my walkin' shoes on!
My leather belt, and the leather/crystal choker. I forgot to mention yesterday that the choker is by BauXo, a Canadian brand. The belt was made here in Victoria.
I just got home from boot camp, and I'm starving and exhausted. Dinner time!

Jacket (Wilson's Leather, gift from Megan), cardigan (Kersh), cami (Esprit), skirt (Cabri, thrifted), shoes (Me Too), belt (Shi Studio), necklace (BauXo), earrings (The Cobbler), rings (Oscar & Libby's, and Wendy Brandes), cuff (Guess, thrifted).

  4. I can't imagine you being afraid of any colour or piece of clothing! Your combinations are always so winning. I love these blues all thrown in the mix together. And that is an amazing belt. The button flower is wonderful - Megan Mae is a genius.

  5. I like what you're doing with teal lately Sheila.
    Great buy on those tights. Buying off season is a smart move.

  8. Your outfit is gorgeous. I love the simple classic lines with the beautiful saturated aqua and teal. And the patterned tights just finish it perfectly. You have such flair.

  11. Yes, like Wendy said - looks like you found this outfit pre-assembled at a chi-chi boutique! And like Megan said, the jacket is perfection. (I have no thoughts of my own today? : >)

  12. Megan Mae is just the best! Sheila, this is a really beautiful outfit (or I should say Teriffic!) - the textures and subtleties give it such a luxurious feel, and it looks like it feels amazing to wear. It suits you marvellously well!
