Lingonberry and Pink

Thank you for your good vibes re: my teeth. I had an infection above one of my implants and the dentist did some gruesome things to it, and now my mouth is very sore. However, how do we fashionistas deal with life's lemons? 
 We put on our armour and wear something bright! (You thought I was going to say "make lemonade", didn't you?)

  • Blouse - Banana Republic, thrifted; purchased here for $15.95
  • Skirt - J. Studio, vintage 80s; last seen here in April with steel grey ruffles
  • Shoes - Elegant Conversations Kendra, Fluevog; last worn here in September 2016 with corporate cerulean
  • Jacket (below) - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; last seen here yesterday!

I'd planned to wear a cream brocade blazer over this, but it just felt too warm, so nah, gonna show my arms. I liked this new-to-me blouse - it's such a nice raspberry colour (although the tag says "lingonberry").
 I really liked the tonal colour blocking of the deeper, reddier pink with the bright, almost neon pink.

Outerwear - and that is a face that wants to go back to bed and moan. Sore mouth...
 We're back to our "normal" summer temps, so a loose coat like this is ideal for not sweating to death in, but also giving me some physical sunblock.

The stuff:
 My version of a neutral shoe!

Cream bling:
I wore the flower clipped to one of the belt loops on the skirt.

  • Flower - Roberta's Hats
  • Necklace - Banana Republic, consignment
  • Ring - Soul Flower
  • Earrings - don't remember


  1. So sorry to hear about your pain at the dentist - hope you recover quickly!

    I do like the colorful and cheerful outfit you put together to make yourself feel better though - the flower and necklace are just the perfect accessories!

    1. Feeling better, thanks, hon! The pinks made me happy - glad they worked for you too!

  2. I have bad teeth and it sucks. even th dentist says a huge factor is straight genetics.

    1. Definitely! I have strong teeth (no cavities), but crap gums. Thank you!

  3. omg you look stunning! i have braces right now, and i go to the dentist all the time because of that. so I get your pain :/ hope you get well soon! ;)

  4. I love it when unexpected hues come together, these two shades look awesome She!

  5. These are my most fave of your neutral shoes Sheila. The rasp/loganberry combo is very sweet (like the berries, hahaha!)

    I'm going away for a dental look-see (more work pending) later this week so wish me luck.
