Thursday on Monday - Tweedy

As I missed work last Thursday, but had my clothes and accessories all sorted out (even in their bags, ready to go into the backpack), I wore them for today. How's that for a lazy Monday?
My favourite tweed skirt, newish long cardi, and my good ol' red accessories. Not terribly exciting, but it's Monday after all.

The stuff:
These shoes are one of my few pre-weight-loss items that I still have. And I haven't worn this bracelet since I got it for my birthday - shameful!

Cardigan (Express, thrifted), cami (InWear), skirt (Kensie), belt (Plum), shoes (Nine West), earrings (don't recall), bracelet (gift from Mom).

  1. Nothing wrong with an already planned outfit. Especially on a Monday when I have a hard time getting out of bed. Those little touches of red, must have given you a little boost for the day ;)

  3. Very cute, I like the long cardi. The tweed skirt is so nice and classic. Very fun! The bracelet is very cool! My sister just gave me copper earrings that she made for my birthday. I love the look of copper jewelry.

  4. I love the belted long cardi and skirt combo...looks fab! And I wish I could wear tweed more often...but unfortunately, I would prob sweat to pieces in about 5 seconds. Oh well, like I said, you look great!

  5. Hi Sheila,
    Looking at the time (clock behind) if it´s 6 AM you must be proud to look so well put together...at that time I am practically comatose.
    I like the bracelet.. is it slinky-like ?
    Thank for stopping by :)

  7. Hey Sheila,

  8. Sher, you are so right. I did love the bits of red - my favourite colour!

    Sal, I guess it is a cool piece. Thanks!

    Alison, thanks! Hey, happy birthday!

    watergirl, thank you so much. I am very grateful to have distinct seasons, just for variety.

    Lorena, it's actually 6 PM - I walk to and from work in my shorts and t-shirt and then I change back into my clothes to take my picture when I get home. That's why my hair is fuzzy! Compare to a Friday picture, which *is* taken in the morning. Yes, the bracelet is sort of slinky - the black part is rubber.

    Tina, thanks!

    Lesa, oh, I'm so glad! Thanks very much - I find if I don't belt a long cardi, I look like a jelly bean with legs.
