Adding a routine to one's week really eats up a chunk of time - it usually takes me 30-45 minutes to do a blog entry, and now L and I have the gym three times a week added on top of that. It feels good to be getting stronger, but I miss the extra time!
Anyway, enough of my whining, here's the blue and white blouse, back for another kick at the can.

I did try a little harder to make this blouse work this time; tucked it in, did my usual hourglass shape instead of no-waist, added more colour. I last wore it here.

I wore the skirt twice in the September 2012 capsule (recap here), but it's been a favourite ever since I got it. It's in the dry-cleaning bag now, though, as I got a few dirt marks on it at work today.

The jacket is my classic "boyfriend" blazer that I thrifted a couple of years ago. It featured heavily in the July 2012 capsule (recap here), where I wore it 7 times. My love for a classic black "throw it on with everything" blazer was reinvigorated!
buttonflowers* - the tan button in the centre was the thing that led me down the path to the second neutral. Of course, if you're doing a buttonflower with bees on it, one must wear the bee brooch! I had so many compliments on my cluster of colour today - thank you, Megan!
*linking 'cause I love - do I even need to say that about Megan?
Hope your Monday was...well, not a typical Monday!
