Baby Blue, Ocelot and Dove Grey

My Thursday is over, and the wine is calling. Let's be quick about this.
After seeing how thigh-tastic the skirt was, I zipped it a little lower!
This outfit was just a bit of a mish-mash that felt like, "Sure, why the hell not?"


  • Jacket - Live a Little, consignment; first worn here (3rd outfit) in November 2015 with brown and blue
  • Blouse - no label, vintage early 80s, thrifted; last seen here a couple of weeks ago with mod shoes
  • Skirt - Tribal, consignment; last worn here (2nd outfit) on Friday with wedge-heeled sneakers
  • Shoes - Gentle Souls; last seen here (3rd outfit) with purple leather

Must...open...eyes...
I love the softness of this faux-fur ocelot brown/black/blue jacket, but I've only worn it once. The short sleeve thing is tricky, plus what colours do you do with it but brown/black/blue? White and cream? So boring! How about baby blue? Sure!
It gave me just the right amount of coverage (the blouse is sheer and I didn't wear a camisole under it today) and warmth. I must try to work it into more outfits, or out the door it goes. No room for slackers in my closet!

The stuff:
So happy to have "rediscovered" these shoes! They were fabulous all day.

Silver bling:
Fistfuls of rings, and a pin at my throat.


  • Brooch - thrifted
  • Big ring - thrifted
  • Shield ring - Nine West
  • Spinner pinky ring - Twang & Pearl
  • Earrings - Glee


I'll be back tomorrow with Friday's outfit, and this weekend, I'll be putting together my May capsule, with a bit of a look at how April's fared. I also have a party to go to! Party clothes!

  1. Fantastic ensemble - and use of a far too underappreciated (in the fashion world) animal print. I totally want something ocelot for my own closet now, too. :)

    Big hugs & happy weekend wishes,

    1. I adore animal print too. Ocelot is the new leopard, ha!

  2. Party clothes! You have so many great pieces to choose from.
    How did it get to be Friday already? How?!
    I love the short-sleeve faux animal with the femininish blouse. Plus, the zipper detail on the skirt. I have so many SLACKERS in my closet.

    1. Those slackers! Sometimes you just have to kick them to the curb.

      I know...what to wear? I may have to do a big marathon try-on tomorrow!

  3. I like the zipper detail on that skirt and that powder blue shirt is becoming a favourite of mine. The onlt thing I am not fully convinced of is the jacket.

    1. Same here, on all items, Lorena. The jacket is very difficult to style.

  4. Am a bit ho-hum re the jacket too. But please, mega please, consider me if you decide to move on the baby blue blouse - I totally adore it! I had a cream one like this in the 80's and wish I still had it now.
