Cheesy Paisley

We've had a lovely stretch of hot weather lately, which is why all my clothes have been loose and flowy. Today was no exception:
These are my new yellow Tsubos, the "Erebus" - they were on sale for about $100. I fell in love with the colour. In some lights it's very yellow, some it's rather orange. Let's call it marigold. Or Kraft Dinner.

I forgot about this top, because it was in my dry-cleaning bag for several months (along with a jacket). I've had it for about 3 years (pre-blog).
For this outfit, I just played with all the colours in the top - I always wear this cuff with it. The skirt doesn't match exactly (it's a taupey-brown in the top, not khaki), I thought it looked fine. I felt very bright and sunshiney all day!

Other ways I've worn the top here, here, here, and here.

The stuff:
Ah, sweet Tsubos. I love the silver lining! I could stand all day in these - enormously comfortable.

A close-up:
My awesome cuff, and my flower power earrings.

Blouse (I.N.C.), skirt (Club Monaco, consignment), shoes (Tsubo), cuff (thrifted), earrings (no brand).


  1. I love all of the above. :-)Esp that paisley!!!!

  2. OMG I've been lusting after those for ages! (And the orange Ina sandals) Glad to hear they're as comfy as I imagined they'd be.

    Loove the shiny paisley top.

  3. Sweet new skids! Those. Are. Gorgeous. And I love all the ways you've styled the top. Also, khaki goes with everything. It's the law.

  4. The cuff is rockin! And I love me some Tsubos -- you like the same brands I do! I love how bright you look in yellow -- it's a flattering shade for you!


  5. that's funny your take on the skirt's color. when i saw it, i was all like 'OMG!! TAUPE!! my favorite!!! ; ) great look, esp. for hot weather.

  6. Thanks, Bianca! It's one of my favourite blouses.

    Thanks, Megan! They are awesome.

    A-Dubs, thanks! I know...and yet I hardly own any khaki. How does that happen?

    Thanks, Julia!

    Ha, Steph, fooled ya. Thanks!

    Erin, I haven't had KD in years. Literally. I grew up on the stuff, though. Thanks!

    Shybiker, thanks!

  7. So in love with all the colors here! And there is nothing more satisfying than a pair of comfortable, pretty heels, is there?

  8. Thanks, Kristen - yes, you're so right, these heels are awesome.
