Red and Blue, and Floral Too

Getting through this week is proving to be difficult. Damned slow, that's what this week is! 
I'm starting to look forward and think about my fall clothes - I get excited about boots and tights (are coloured tights still in?) and warm skirts in wool and suede. Of course, I wear wool and suede in the summer too!

Today's outfit was built around this new-to-me blouse, thrifted back here in July for $8.00.
I wore a red cami under it as it's pretty sheer, although you wouldn't know it from these pictures.

I love this blue wool skirt. Thank you, anonymous sewer with the same figure as me!
"I love you, don't go to work!"
Cerulean blue is such a rich and vibrant colour. I last wore it here in May with brown and leopard.

The stuff:
I last wore these clompin' shoes during my "Shoes My Husband Hates" series, here in June.

Blue bling:
These earrings go so well with my Wendy Brandes ring.

Blouse (Liz Claiborne, thrifted), skirt (handmade, vintage 80s, thrifted), shoes (Miz Mooz, consignment), belt (Plum), earrings (local), ring (Wendy Brandes).


  1. Coloured tights better still be in... I missed out on them for most of last winter (the wee one didn't appreciate their tightness)... even if they aren't, we'll still rock them, right?

    1. Oh, heck, yeah! I will need tights during our rainy and dark fall/winter, and black and brown just won't cut it!

  2. Such a nice printed blouse! I like it with the blue skirt :)

    It's funny, it's winter here and I'm a little lost - can't find my trench coats after my wardrobe clearout, (I kept them, but where?!) and my leather jackets aren't easy to wash if baby gets something on them. Can't wait until it's warmer and jackets are optional! I am enjoying boots and tights though :)

  3. I love that name "cerulean blue". It's almost magical in texture.
    It's pretty much the colour of our sky today, here in a Canberra winter. We do good skies in Oz!
    Hope your week picks up speed, quick smart.XO JJ

  4. Gorgeous color skirt - i have a similar in knit fabric,a nd you've inspired me to pair it with a bright floral. You look great, and I say yes to colored tights this winter. xo

  5. I love the skirt, too. Beautiful color and great shape.

  6. I hope colored tights are back this year!

    Love that color blue!

  7. Great blouse, and the skirt is a perfect fit.
    Who cares whether coloured tights are "in" or not? Not us, surely! They are so much better than boring black! xx

  8. I was wondering that same thing 3 days ago, are coloured tights still in ? I think so :)
    You're new blouse is so pretty, its very similar to the Escada one I sold at the flea market.
