This was a cranky Monday. I'm tired, I'm aching from Ultimate and I did not want to go to work today. Time to fake it!
- Blouse - no label, vintage 80s, thrifted; purchased here for $5.50
- Skirt - Smoking Lily, thrifted; last seen here (2nd outfit) in June 2014 with black and green
- Shoes - Big Presence Desmond; last worn here in March to the Art Gallery with polka dots
this one) of this "square blouse" for this polyester cobalt blue one - the silk one is stained in the 'pits and I can wash this one. Much as I prefer silk overall, polyester is more practical for me.
I'm iffing on the skirt - I love it, but it doesn't get the wear it deserves.
- Obi - Megan, via Ally
- Earrings - vintage 60s, vintage fair
- Death Star ring - Stone Roses
- Blue/silver ring - Scotland, 1996
You know what Friday is?
Shoe Shine! Start planning now!
I always get excited to see one of my obi belts in the wild. That orange one was definitely one of my top favorite pairings.ReplyDelete
I hope your Monday improved! The orange and blue is such a cheerful colour combination, and I like the obi belt on you :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful colors. And I feel the same way about Mondays during Spring. We're more active during the nice weekends and end up tired when returning to work.ReplyDelete
The colours and patterns work so well Sheila - too bad you don't wear that skirt that often.ReplyDelete
I know what you mean about Mondays… I dragged my feet to work yesterday too.
Orange and blue is such a good colour combo, you look divine Sheila!ReplyDelete
Yep, sometimes you just have to plaster a smile on your face and get on with it, even if you don't feel like it... A bright and beautiful colour combination surely helps! xxxReplyDelete
You know, I always like your lipstick choices, but this one's beyond smashing! And those shoes. Goddesslike. I don't wear orange much, but orange shoes are so much YES. It's such a happy color. Happy feet!ReplyDelete
I have a feeling that skirt might really blossom in one of your more retro-vintage influenced or sexy librarian type outfits? Seems like this outfit here wanted perhaps more of a classic pencil skirt? Just thoughts...
One of my favourite colour combos too! The orange earrings and bright lip colour really flatter you!ReplyDelete
