Lilac and the Lost Flower

Lilacs are just starting to bloom here - they are one of my favourite of the spring flowers. 
Is it possible to "over-lilac"? Or is this "over-lavendering" (that's totally a word).

  • Blouse - Mexx, thrifted; last seen here on an abbreviated sick day in March
  • Skirt - no label, thrifted; purchased here for $6.00
  • Shoes - Camper; last seen here in August 2015 with a lilac-patterned skirt

I struggled with this outfit today - the skirt is the only item from the original 30-piece capsule. I hauled out this gingko-patterned shirt and knotted it at the waist (I have a black camisole on under it to prevent tummy-flashing). The shoes have been swapped for the black sandals, now that the weather has veered back into spring and not "spring pretending to be summer".

This is the first wearing of this skirt, and I loved it. So comfy!
Kitty lurking in the background
And such a pretty shape. The seamed/decorated nylons might have been a titch too sex-ay for the office, but what the heck. I'm 48, I can be sexy if I want to!

The stuff:
My wonderful lavender shoes! I'm always so happy to have them back every spring, although they are getting worn out.

Silver bling:
And what is missing here? The white flower.

  • Bangle - local
  • Bracelet, larger earring - Fossil, gifts from L
  • Long earring - Fossil, thrifted
  • Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop
  • Stacked rings - thrifted

The flower was clipped to my waistband, and somewhere between home and halfway to work this morning, it must have fallen off. Sad...But, it's just a thing. Maybe I'll find it tomorrow morning. Or maybe I'll just buy another fabric flower.


  1. I think you look dashing, I like the flower detail - you'll probably find it !
    Oh, and there is no such thing as "over lilac..."

  2. I think the seamed stockings are the punch that this pretty outfit needed. Those lilac shoes are darling - look so comfy too x

  3. i am so glad i clicked "Follow"!!! i would wear this ensemble all the time!!
