Double Challenge: Summer Black-Out and Summer Capsule Wardrobe - Day 2

Today brings items 3 and 4, another top and a bottom. Trying to pick interesting items that aren't all neutrals (because why make it easy, haha) has been...a challenge. The no-black thing? Not an issue.
This is my favourite silky boho top, and those are my recently purchased "pencil" pants. I had fun in this - I felt very "out there" in my boring office (not you, Ruth). Especially since my Senior VP was in town again and in the cubicle next to mine. Why does he always come here when I'm doing a challenge?

The stuff:
Pretty standard matchy stuff. All favourites.

A shot of the stuff on me:
I'm looking down and laughing because someone's poking around in my closet:
He loves hanging out there with me.

Blouse (Zara, consignment), pants (Noa Noa), shoes (Le Chateau), belt (Plum), earrings (Plum, gift from L), ring (Fossil), shiny bracelet (The Bay), other bracelet (vintage, 1960s, Mom's).


  1. Tell Kitty it's okay to come out of the closet. We love gay cats!

  2. Cuute top and badass shoes! The wrist cuffs are really pretty. I like the swirly one! I love Inigo's little curl at the end of his tail.

  3. Nicely done Sheila... you are wearing that kick ass top from Zara I love!
    I can imagine your VP looking at you and thinking you are eccentric or maybe a former model...

  4. As usual delightful I could do all that but not the shoes ,love the cat ,I have a dog who likes to help too grrowl lol ..love Jan xx

  5. I ADORE this look! Such fabulous pieces in such a flattering combo!

  6. I love this top, particularly on you. Looks fabulous!

    Inigo wins for cuteness though ;). I just want to squish him!

  7. Ha, Wendy, my big gay cat thanks you!

    Megan, thanks! Inigo's tail-tip is very expressive.

    Thanks, Lorena! You'll see this top again this week. Ha, my VP knows me - he definitely thinks I'm eccentric (and he loves my shoes).

    Thanks, Jane!

    Jan, thank you - it would be an easy outfit with lower heels, for sure. Aw...I love the pets.

    Thank you, Sal!

    Thanks, Sherylyn - you are too sweet. I know, I just want to kiss his fuzzy head.
