Colourful Monday

I like to rotate through my new stuff once it's been a month or so - put together another outfit, trying to pull out the potential. I first wore this skirt here (aw...the day we said goodbye to Othello). I love purple and yellow together, so played that up again today:
I left the side uncropped because Inigo's being cute.

The stuff:
I haven't worn these shoes in ages (yup, it's been a year). I put my sparkly barrette on the yellow scarf, since barrettes never stay in my hair (it's too fine). I feel so kooky when I wear a scarf in my hair for work.

A close-up:
The shiny rhinestone belt I also never wear.

Blouse (Esprit), skirt (Vivienne Tam, consignment), shoes (Jessica Simpson), scarf (thrifted), barrette (Club Monaco), belt (The Bay).


  1. Looking fabulous~ I love how you've worn the skirt here much better than the first time. So many awesome details going on in this one. The print of the skirt is just gorgeous~

  2. Hello Sheila,
    I've been stalking you for awhile. Just saw your comment on Tat's blog so I thought it was time I said "hi". Loving what I'm seeing! Isn't being 40 and fashionable just fabulous!?! I will be back tomorrow.

  3. envious of the gorgeous skirt!!! like purple with yellow and also with orange. thanks for not cropping out the kitty- we have 2 indoors that are rescue cats and a mommy and 6 three month olds in and out of the shop building. so much fun.

  4. These colors look great on you !
    That skirt is fabulous and I like all your shiny stuff.

  5. Bright, cheerful & altogether PUT together! And the shoes! Don't wait another year to wear them...

  6. Oh, I LOVE the colors in this! What's nice is that the yellow is integral to the outfit, but it's downplayed as bits of accessories instead of a shirt. That's a clever twist!

  7. Love this outfit. I'm so into that magenta colour plus your fabulous yellow and silver accessories.

    Finally, thanks for leaving your ever so cute cat in the shot. (and he wasn't in front of your shoes!)

  8. One of my co-workers has those shoes as well... I love the way your styling them!

  9. Awesome outfit. Purple and yellow are a beautiful combination. And the ruffles in your top add a punch of pizzazz.

  10. YOU LOOK AMAZING! What a vibrant, sassy, unbelievably fun ensemble, Sheila! You are my sparkly, colorful hero.

  11. W
    you're on a serious roll these days! the color/texture combos you're coming up with are really gorgeous, unusual, and look wonderful on you. i've been thinking about adding some color myself and getting lots of ideas here. Yay!! thank you!
