Teal and Cream - and a Birthday Week Break

I made it. I'm on holiday until next Monday! 
A lovely view of my vintage slip
It's an official "stay-cation" - I really need some down-time.

  • Blouse - Ben Sherman, thrifted; last seen here (6th outfit) after the out-laws' visit
  • Skirt - Mackage, thrifted; first worn here for my mom's birthday 
  • Shoes - Channi B; purchased here on the weekend for $295.00

I showed off my new shoes to everyone at work (hands off, Lesley! you can't have these shoes yet!). I had several compliments on the ensemble, especially since my hair matched the purple stripe of the shirt, and the pink lining of the shoes.
I see someone sneaking a peek! 
It's like I planned it. I wanted to wear this skirt one more time in the May capsule - it's going to be put away for fall, as it's too warm now for thick leather.

The stuff:
First wear - barefoot! - and these were amazing shoes. A nice squishy platform, lots of room in the toes, no rubbing or chafing anywhere. Worth every penny.

Pearl bling:
I always forget about this necklace.

  • Necklace - vintage fair
  • Earrings - thrifted
  • Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes

I'll be back on Sunday with my mild during-the-week adventures, our sure-to-be insane birthday party for L (I have a few outfit changes planned!), and a small examination of the May/June capsules. On second thought, that's a lot. I might try fit the capsule stuff into a post later on this week. We'll see...I don't have to decide! I'm on vacation! Weeeeeee!


  1. A stay cation is a great idea...relax and recharging are so important to our well being...
    Enjoy your time off!

  2. Enjoy your time off and recharge your batteries!

    Those shoes are gorgeous and look lovely with the shirt and skirt.

  4. Someday you will tire of those shoes so I call dibs :)

  5. Dang - I wish I'd got in with my dibs call first! Hope you have a lovely break, enjoy!

  6. Those shoes are straight up gorgeous. What an elegant, eye-catchingly marvelous pair. I really like your vintage pearl necklace, too - that clasp is a stunner.

    Big hugs,

  7. What a perfect combination of blouse , skirt, shoes and a half slip showing at the hem of your skirt. Thank you so much for the photo. Hope to see more of your photos in dress or skirts with a half slip showing a glimpse .
