Casual Friday: The Key to My Heart

Ah, the weekend! I was in such a good mood all day yesterday: it was sunny, it was Friday, and I was wearing my new favourite denim acid wash skirt again:
*yawn* Yes, this old thing. I had originally planned to do the Stonefly shoes again, but then I felt like not having the ol' toes enclosed, you know? With all this daring pattern mixing I've been doing, my confidence has taken a turn up the rollercoaster, so I tossed these little leopard wedges into the mix.

A "top" shot:
Although it was sunny, it's always windy here, especially near the water, so I opted for long sleeves (also so that I wouldn't have to wear sunblock, ugh). I love this pretty silk blouse.

The stuff:
A nice look at the acid wash and pocket sparkles. The leopard inside these shoes is not original - they are little stick-on Dr. Scholl's liners (they come 3 to a pack for about $17), and they are great for dressy shoes that don't have any cushioning.

A closer look at the jewelry:
I got the key earrings for I think $10 a few weeks ago. They're just plastic, but I really liked them. The heart locket is actually my baby locket, so it's at least 42-going-on 43 years old.

Blouse (Kaliko, consignment), cami (Mexx), skirt (Cache, thrifted), belt (Plum), shoes (don't recall, but they were cheap from the Bay), earrings (no brand), locket (60s vintage).


  1. Love the pattern mixing. You look very comfy casual in today's outfit.
    I'm gonna have to pick up some of those Dr. Scholls foot pads. Cute AND comfortable? Yes please.

  2. Its been a while since I have heard or seen the word ACID WASH.
    You took me right back to highschool !
    This looks nice, I am also becoming a pattern mix follower-

  3. A perfect long sleeved casual look!

    I do love a sunny day too, but the sun and I are not friends so wearing sunscreen is a must. Since I can't seem to find a brand that agrees with my skin, I spend much of my time under cover. As long as my face, neck and hands are in 60 SPF I'm good!

  4. Really cute. I love the bling pockets on that, cute, acid wash skirt. And love the leopard shoes.

  5. Thanks, Megan! It was a super-comfy outfit. The new Dr. Scholl's don't have leopard - I think it's paisley.

    Lorena, I know, total flashback! Thanks!

    Wendy, I know you love it!

    Jen, thanks! Yeah, me and the sun...gotta cover up or give in and cover myself in SPF 50.

    Kiki, thank you!

  6. OMG!!! Those shoes are darling, right down to the insoles.

  7. I do love a denim skirt - and those leopard wedges are completely fab!

  8. They may be plastic, but I am digging the key earrings. Super cute.

  9. I am loving that top on you! It makes you all glowy.

  10. Thanks, Jean. They were so cheap!

    Cat, me too! Thanks!

    Tina, it just means they are nice and light, right? Thanks!

    Thanks, Kristen!

  11. I love that top! It is a great cut, and SO feminine. Just gorgeous- looks seasonally versatile, too. (a big plus in my book)
    And, don't you just LOVE those Dr. Scholl's insoles? They can render the most jarring high heel comfy! Plus, if they are the ones I've got, they don't show if you want to put them in a sandal! The most righteous thing they've ever come up with there at Dr. Scholl's, apart from the original "Exercise Sandals"! (Which I believe they also make in leopard!)

  12. Thanks, Rita! It is one of my favourite tops. Yes, those are the Dr. Scholl's! They don't show at all.
