After a great game of Ulty yesterday, we came home for a nap after lunch, and then headed up-Island to Cobble Hill to have dinner with a work-friend and his wife (hi, Gord and Dawn!). They have property with chickens, horses and it's generally terrifying for a city-chick like me, so I went ultra-casual. Well, as much as I can be ultra-cas within my capsule!here) and my black jacket (last worn here, 2nd outfit), and my gold sandals (last worn here, same day). We had a really nice time, sitting out on the porch in the warm weather.
I wore this last fresh item from this month's capsule: the embellished black tank:
|Yup, that says $59.00.|
Jacket (Banana Republic, thrifted), top (Freebird, consignment), pedal pushers (Reitman's), shoes (Naturalizer, consignment).
L and I got lost coming home - that was a little freaky! Out in the middle of nowhere with no streetlights! We saw a lot of raccoons, including a mama and two babies crossing the road. We made it home okay (obviously). Thanks, Gord and Dawn, for inviting us on this adventure!
Today, I'm just hanging at home, relaxing. Of course, it's raining again. I'd be happy to send this weather off to any of you in hot climates!
Here! Here. I'll take the rain - and I love your ultra-cas look!ReplyDelete
Those pedal pushers are such a great colorful piece to add to this capsule. Sounds like you guys had a fun adventure, if a bit scary! Our gps is a little out of date and one time we got majorly lost trying to find a friend's house. We eventually got righted, but DH and I learned real fast that we both suck at navigating.ReplyDelete
Love this look, Sheila. I am such a city-woman too and I salute your courage! You made it to the country and back again. I rarely get lost in the biggest of cities, but don't put me out where the taxis don't run : >ReplyDelete
The beading on that tank is gorgeous. Love the gorgeous teal pedal pushers.ReplyDelete
I grew up with horses, rabbits, and a pig, so your post made me grin. I've shoveled out a few stalls in my day :P
I'm lovin your sandals. I bought some wedges yesterday with a similar design.ReplyDelete
Love this look - the beading on the top is so nice!ReplyDelete
What the heck is Ulty? Never heard of that! I sort of know how you feel about visiting folks in the country. I enjoy the experience, but no way would I like to live there myself.ReplyDelete

Love love love those pedal pushers! The cut is perfect, and you know I love a good teal. :)ReplyDelete
Yes, please send that weather here! Going to be a scorcher today!ReplyDelete
I love the beading on that tank, it's really unique and fun! And sounds like you had quite the adventure out in the boonies!
Love the outfit--the beading on the top is stunning!!ReplyDelete
I've sometimes had the "dipping" problem with embellished necklines--if wearing a cami underneath won't work--possibly take the shoulders up a bit.
Sometimes I think I'm torn about the living in the city or country. But, the country won out for us. I love it. I really cannot say it's really quiet though, with owls, coyotes and creaking trees. It is very, very dark at night though. I love the new tank and your pants are the perfect punch of color!ReplyDelete
Adventures in visiting friends! I like the drapey top...thrifted a new one in rayon this past week, but can't wear it for a bit.ReplyDelete
