Autumn Camo

It's autumn with a vengeance! The rain, wind and cold are here - this is classic West coast weather. It's also dark at 4:30, and barely light when I do my morning pics. Oh, fall/winter, you are the bane of fashion bloggers everywhere.

Today, I paired this new sweater with my classic Painty Skirt (yes, I do name a lot of my clothes, doesn't everyone?). I chose to wear an orange cami underneath this (quite) sheer knit sweater, and in hindsight I think I should have gone with mustard instead. The orange doesn't really show off the nice "Holiday Moss" colour of this cardi ($16.19 with my 40% off coupon at Dots). Eh, live and learn.

This skirt is on the chopping block.
I've had it for 3 years, and I've worn it many times:
...and probably a few more.

It felt very nice on - I love how it swoops , especially when I'm walking around. But what do you think? Time for it to go, or should I keep it?
Keep it!
Consign/swap it! free polls 
The stuff:
I thought I'd go with the spotty leopard belt instead of a usual brown belt. These pumps feel so nice on.

A close-up:
Not a great picture of the bottom bracelet - here's a better one. The earrings are new, from Oscar & Libby's. The end of the key actually says "LOVE" but of course I photographed them backwards. Oops.

Sweater (Kersh), skirt (Nine West), shoes (Lauren by Ralph Lauren), belt (don't remember), floral bracelet (consignment), faux Gucci bracelet (gift from Italy from Mom & Dad), earrings (Lavishy).


  1. That is so funny that you though that skirt should go on the chopping block...
    The first thing i noticed and liked was the skirt!

    If you are bored and tired of it consign it pronto there are lots of feel good clothes that could jump in and perk you up...

    wow what a blistery day!

    I am up to try and reschedule our coffee if you are :)

  2. I love the colors in this outfit, it's perfect, love everything about it you look great! That has to be the softest little cardigan, and the perfect color too!=D

  3. Awww I'm terribly in love with that skirt, but if you are reaching the plateau of love with it, consign it for something you'll be giddy about. I think the colors are gorgeous and rich! Perfect for autumn.

  4. I totally read "painty" as "panty" and I will continue to call it that from now on! Use that as a reason either to keep or to give it away!

  5. I would keep it since it is so pretty! I love it!

  6. Gorgeous colors, Sheila. I love the skirt, but if you don't get all excited about it any more, then maybe a trip to the consignment is in order. Great pumps too, btw!

  7. Oh, I love it. Of course, I love everything you have, so my choice would be keep it. I love all the colors you have on. It is a perfect fall outfit.

  8. I love it, but it seems very soft compared to the usual "Sheila" look. Know what I mean?

    I think you've given that skirt a lot of life, time to give someone else a chance with it!

  9. I'm glad you clarified what color camisole you were wearing and that the sweater is sheer. My first thought was, "Are her girls...glowing?!?" LOL! I love the autumn colors in this outfit.

  10. Leslie, so looking forward to meeting you tomorrow! I know, the skirt is lovely, but I just get tired of the old things.

    Shey, thank you! The cardigan is so nice and soft.

    Megan, I'm still not sure - I did love wearing it again.

    Judith, I agree!

    Cara, ha! That's hilarious!

    Jane, thank you!

    Ki, thanks!

    Patti, I'll have to think about it - I'm such a waffler!

    Debbi, ha, thank you!

    Freeda, yes, I do know what you mean - sometimes I like to go girly!

    Louise, that made me laugh! I won't be doing that again!

  11. I have serious skirt envy :D
