Whew! Another day over and closer to my long weekend!
I'm often inspired by nature for colour combinations in my clothes (seriously, nature mixes every colour - and it works), but sometimes it's the little details that I like.here over my 70s kitchen ensemble). So we have our green. Lots of green in nature.
From there, we have this fabulous skirt. The colour is called mushroom, and it's pretty close to the mushrooms I buy. I had some mushroom soup today, in fact and it was delicious.
here, with a yellow poncho). I love the way it swooshes when I walk.
I wore a mid-height heel at work:
un-Vizzini-fied Fluevogs, which I last wore here with my butterscotch velvet jacket.
My Smoking Lily obi was worn over the jacket (I had a black camisole on under it) - look, leaves! And that wing shape near the bottom is a maple tree seed (a helicopter, if you're from Canada).
Jacket (RW& Co., consignment), cami (Esprit), skirt (Club Monaco), obi (Smoking Lily), shoes (Wonders Ayers, Fluevog), necklace (gift from Mom), spoon bracelet (About Tine), earrings (Plum), spinner ring (Twang & Pearl), jade ring (Mom's, vintage 70s).
I love everything about this look! And we call maple seeds helicopters in Kansas too.ReplyDelete
Yes, they are the most comfortable Fluevogs ever! I hope they come out with more from that shoe family. Love the Obi - my street is covered in helicopters right now. I used to stick them on my nose when I was a kid.ReplyDelete
The skirt is devine!! You would look so good in the dress I am giving away, Shelia...come on over and register!!ReplyDelete
I am likely repeating myself, but I adore that necklace whenever you show it! Love this whole look, a pleated skirt is so fab.ReplyDelete
So beautiful! I love that skirt... also, mad jelly of your Fluevogs.ReplyDelete
I have always called maple seeds helicopters since I was little in Michigan. But since then whenever I've said that to anyone, they've looked at me as though I was crazy. So I'm glad to know that there are others who say the same. I really enjoy your blog, I'm a recent reader. Thanks for taking the time to write it. Cheers, KellyReplyDelete
So nice to read along with your inspiration and why you picked each piece! Such a beautiful outfit resulting from it too :)ReplyDelete
It does seem like a mushroom color! I love mushrooms - mushroom soup sounds delicious!ReplyDelete
I have adored that skirt in every outfit you have posted of it!!-ReplyDelete
i love the Nature inspired outfit!
And we call then helicopters here in Western Maryland/East coast
Beautiful! Nature is the best inspiration. You wear a long skirt so well. I remember that cute note the Fluevog people sent you after the Bad Kitty Chewing incident...ReplyDelete
And I call them helicopters too, isn't that funny?
This is such a refreshing outfit. I am madly in love with your bird necklace.ReplyDelete
OMG -- that outfit is FABULOUS...very sophisticated in a natural way (must be all that nature inspiration, lol) -- love it!ReplyDelete
