Blue, Floral, Fruital and Elf Shoes

The countdown is on - my mother-in-law is coming to town. My week will be a bit jumbled due to that, but for today, normalcy reigns. 
I see this as a fairly conservative outfit, but I realize it's not for many others. Patterned blouse, play with the colours for the dress and shoes, and add some "tough" accessories.

I last wore this gloriously blue dress here in March, after purchasing it in Vancouver. I liked this outfit better than that one because the blouse works better under it (also, not as cold on the arms!).
I love this floral/fruital (should totally be a word!) blouse. How would you describe a pattern with grapes and berries? I say fruital.
I last wore it here in March with my cerulean skirt.

The stuff:
Pointy green elf shoes! Since I used to be a Number 1 Elf, that seems appropriate. I last wore my Half Truth Tanyas here in March with polka dots and paisley.

Badass bling:
It's the grommet belt. Nothing says badass like a grommet belt.

Blouse (no label, thrifted), dress (Savvie), shoes (Half Truth Tanyas, Fluevog), belt (gift from Ruth), earrings (Aldo Accessories), lapis lazuli ring (Wendy Brandes).


  1. Your 'frutial' printed blouse pairs really nicely with the blue dress! Bonus that it kept your arms warmer too :)

  2. That's a brilliant little dress, Sheila - I like it layered like this too.

  3. I can see why you think it's a bit of a conservative look - for you it is - but in a good way. I love the color blue of the dress and the belt gives the whole look a nice bit of edginess!

  4. I totally agree; fruital should be a word. It is a word now as you have made it one. LOVE the dress. I am quite fond of elf shoes and in that lovely green yours are swoon worthy.

  5. nice look, cute shoes :)


  6. Lovely colours, the fruital blouse is so pretty! And I love the green shoes. xxx

  7. Pretty dress indeed Sheila, I particularly like the belt - i hope you have a good inlaw visit :)

  8. Mmm shoes! Also I love that dress's collar. In other news, I prefer 'fruital' patterns to florals most of the time! Always have,
