I was happy today to see my spotty hive-legs nearly back to their state of blinding white.
I actually had this outfit ready to go to wear on Tuesday, but then I remembered that I'd worn the skirt to my WW meeting the last time I wore it (here, emulating a daisy). I loved wearing it again, and liked it with this indigo blue sweater - it let the pattern of the skirt shine a bit more. The skirt reminds me of chainlink fence.

Bits and bling:
Oops, forgot to take my earrings off!
Sweater (Smart Set, thrifted), cami (InWear), skirt (Bedo, thrifted), shoes (Miz Mooz, consignment), belt/coral bracelet (Plum), leather cuff (Guess, thrifted), silver bracelets (thrifted), coral earrings (locally made), silver/coral ring (Oscar & Libby's), lapis lazuli/Fulvia Ring (Wendy Brandes).
After work (a crazy day), I bailed on the gym to finish up L's birthday present shopping - I found him some great stuff. I'm so lucky to be married to a guy who's into so many things - he's so easy to shop for! I'll take pictures after he opens everything so you can see all the good stuff I found.
While I was on my shopping whirlwind, I noted that my favourite transient shop re-opened in the mall! I was so excited. They're called Migration (formerly Lotus), and I actually bought the above earrings there. I'm linking here 'cause I love, nothing received in return although I believe Sarah is posting a picture of me she took in the shop - hi, Sarah! The shop carries all local designers, manufacturers and fair trade clothing, jewelry and accessories - they have some gorgeous stuff. I bought several things there when they were Lotus.
Today, I bought these awesome hibiscus flower-under-glass earrings for $25.00.
The skirt is really wonderful--It immediately got the styling ideas stirring in my brain.
I LOOOOOVE those fabulous shoes! Great silhouette, Sheila.ReplyDelete
I agree, the skirt looks great with a fitted top and belt,must I am really drooling over those fabulous sandals and all the jewellery!ReplyDelete
Just checked out your last couple of posts which I've missed, and that mushroom maxi skirt remains one of my favourites - and that is high praise, coming from a neutral nay-sayer like me! xxxx
I like all your sparkling things and puffy skirt! (Glad your legs are getting back to normal. From one horrible experience, I remember well how uncomfortable that is!) Happy birthday to your hubby. I look forward to seeing what you gifted him with!ReplyDelete
Such a nice outfit! I really like how you've belted the top and worn it over the fuller skirt. I have a few skirts like that (although I haven't worn them in a while) and I always tuck the top into the skirt. I'll need to remember to try it this way instead, it looks really good on you :)ReplyDelete
Lovely earrings too! Hope L enjoys his presents :)
Hooray for hive- free legs! Love this full skirt, it's my favorite silhouette. And the new earrings too, just lovely.ReplyDelete
I love the flowers on your sandals! And the new earrings are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I just love how you mix your colorsReplyDelete
This is a nice outfit- love all the pops of color!
Yay for the return of hive-free pasty legs!!ReplyDelete
Love the outfit--the red coral tones just make it pop--and those shoes are still awesome!1
The new earrings are gorgeous!!
Pasty? I prefer pale, natural, and lovely, please :)ReplyDelete
I have some full skirts that need an outing. All I've been wearing for weeks is dresses. Because anything more involves effort :P
I love your coral jewelry and new earrings. Can't wait to see what L got!
Happy B-day to DH!ReplyDelete
Love that skirt, it looks just as good w/that sweater as it did in the daisy outfit -- black and white skirts are soooo versatile. The color combo in this outfit is really great, never would have put it together myself but it looks fab...the sweater & your frames, the jewelry, and OH MY those shoes...you've done it again (and again and again!)
Yes, the fitted top with a flared skirt works really well on you. I am glad those summery, happy shoes are getting an airing, love them with your coral jewellery.ReplyDelete
Always a treat to visit Ephemera and your creative and striking style. Happy Birthday to L and many, many more!ReplyDelete
Absolutely love this outfit!ReplyDelete
