Oh, it's a hot one today. I am dying here. And what did I do today? I wore a freakin' sweater.
I've had this sweater since last September (worn here, 2nd outfit, with my silk polka dot pants!), when I bought it on consignment for $16.00. I last wore it here in January, and here in December.
here), as do my lime kitten heels (last seen here).
I thought the scarf tied it all together. I wore it draped down the back so that I could protect my tattoo if I went out into the scorching sun.
Believe it or not, I also wore a piece of outerwear: my jean jacket. It's not part of the capsule.
For jewelry, I'm wearing a bronze leather wrist-wrap and brass link bracelet, and my bronze leaf earrings. Pretty simple stuff. I tend to ease up on accessories when it's 30-odd degrees out (and yes, that is Celsius).
Jacket (Ann Taylor Loft), sweater (Reitman's, consignment), skirt (Cute Options), shoes (Circa Joan & David, thrifted), bracelets (Club Monaco), earrings (Plum).
After work, I took one of my coworkers shopping at Dots. It was hard - no air conditioning! She did quite well. I didn't shop for myself, but I did find these two things:
The shoes are so pretty, I love the color!ReplyDelete
Love that skirt -- it's very Norma Kamali.ReplyDelete
Yes, it was hot, hey? But there was a cool breeze in town that made it bearable. I love this colour combo, especially the lime shoes! And great pastel outfit yesterday too - I particularly love that jacket. I sometimes wear my scarves tied down the back. I like that sleek look, like pearls down the back.ReplyDelete
You got a cool breeze? Lucky! It was so still last night, we just roasted.Delete
I love that green skirt so much, Sheila. Paired with the pink sweater, it's a wonderful silhouette and color mix. Scarf down the back -- must try today!ReplyDelete
Sheila, I love this colour combination, so fresh!ReplyDelete
That is a great scarf and your skirt is particularly fabulous.
I feel for you with the 30C melting - hope you have a more comfortable day today.
You make me kinda hot and panty just thinking about wearing a sweater right now. Someone turned off the a/c in the office last night.ReplyDelete
But you also make me long for my thrifted pink sweater, and tights, tights, tights! You look so chic in the parachute skirt. One of the things I love about your blog is your unique clothes - and how well you style them.
I love the color combo and I'm not a pale pink gal!!! The skirt is AWESOME!!!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see what capsule your new hyacinth tights show up in!!
Tights don't count as capsule items, so as soon as the weather's cold enough, I'll be busting them out!Delete
Not only are you the most unusual fashion-blogger I know, you wear your unconventional items with style. The backward scarf is such a cool idea. And if you're ever in a plane experiencing trouble, this skirt will soften your descent. :)ReplyDelete
Ha, yes, although I don't think it will slow me down much!Delete
Thank you so much for your kind words. :)
That is a neat skirt! I don't know that I would be able to pull it off quite as well as you!ReplyDelete
I like the way you interpret your style through your clothes.ReplyDelete
If you ever decide to give up that skirt, I could give it a good home on the East coast. =)ReplyDelete
Noa Noa tights are lovely - good find!
If I get tired of it, I'll send it over!Delete
LOVE this color combo, especially with that magnificent skirt. I'm wanting and wishing for sweaters and tights right now. This has been the longest summer in my memory.ReplyDelete
At least you looked very stylish, even if you were too warm! The skirt is beautiful :)ReplyDelete
