Layin' Low Monday

Monday down, Tuesday to go - I'm counting the days until I'm off again. Three whole days...
I haven't had 3 days in a row off since Christmas!

  • Blouse - Tabi, consignment; last seen here (5th outfit) during the weekend with the out-laws
  • Skirt - Vero Moda, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) for a weekend shop
  • Shoes - Franco Sarto, consignment; last seen here in late April with the Spanish ladies dress

I wasn't entirely happy with the silhouette of this outfit, despite tying the blouse at the waist. Too much fullness all over, but meh, it was fine for a day when I just wanted to keep my brain in vacation mode. It always feels like cheating in this blouse - I swear, it's just like a pajama top.
One more day of my loosey-goosey May capsule, and I'm probably not going to keep this skirt. It's too big, so I have to keep the waist covered (and it spins when I wear it). I only paid $6.00 for it, and this is its 3rd wear. I'm good with $2/wear.

The stuff:
I realized just now that I still have my ring on.

  • Earrings - Stella & Dot, consignment
  • Ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop

These shoes are lovely and comfy - and such a cool colour. Also, bows!


  1. I do love green Sheila - it's my favourite colour and even if you wore a green sack I'm sure it would look good on you!

    I like this outfit and I'm sorry about the skirt - don't you like it enough to alter it or are you not handy with a needle - like me?


    1. Hey, Veronica! Thank you so much. I don't care about the skirt enough to alter it, but even if I did, I probably wouldn't. I can sew but just can't be bothered. I'd rather pass it along to someone else.

  2. super cute! i love this look =)

  3. I love how you're always editing your clothes/closet. I do the same thing!

  4. I love this pyjama-esque top, but agree that the skirt could look better. It does look bulky and surely if it's too big, it has to go.

  5. Love the colours of this outfit. Greens are radiant on you, dear Shelia.

  6. I can imagine wearing this same outfit - I like it. But I do understand what you say.
    What did you do to your hair ? It looks amazing.

    1. I'm growing my hair out - it's been really short for a really long time. Right now, I'm just roughing it up with some putty. It'll be a medium shag cut when it's grown out (which will probably take a year).
