Ooh, I'm so excited to be into October - this is my favourite month! We've been lucky with sun and clear skies for a few days, so I was inspired to do a "summery" fall outfit today.
- Jacket - Brooks Brothers, thrifted; first worn here in July with the trout shoes
- Top - Express, thrifted; purchased here in early September for FREE (it was marked $12.95 and was the 2nd "one" in a "buy one, get one" deal)
- Skirt - J. Crew, thrifted; purchased here in July for $19.95
- Shoes - Elegant Conversations Kendra, Fluevog; last seen here in June with lingonberry and pink
The lace top is bracelet-sleeve length - glimpses as I shoved my sleeves up all day - and I wore a burgundy cami underneath it for coverage and to show off the symmetrical pattern of the lace.
I did a loose knot with the ties in the back when I had it open.
This was a dream to wear, but I was worried all day about getting pen, coffee or other dirt on it.
New copper bling:
- Copper necklace and earrings - Matisse, vintage early 60s, vintage fair, first wear
- Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop
- Amber ring - c. 1989
I will be back on Thursday with a two-fer! My company has its big annual "how did we do?" meeting/dinner tomorrow night - I have fabulous outfits planned for both days!
Love this outfit, Sheila -- I never would have thought of mixing copper with pink, but it's gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Cynthia! I don't wear my copper pieces enough, so I wanted to try this, and I'm so glad I did.Delete
Oh I love the colours in this outfit, and it does look so good on you! I can see why you loved them :) Always good when you find new pieces work in your wardrobe just as well as you hoped!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your annual event!
Thank you, Mica! It is wonderful when you find those "LOVE" pieces!Delete
It's a home run. Fabulous in every way.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Judy!Delete
Like Judy says a home run... a double home run ! Lovely look Sheila and i agree with you, the marvellous look we can get with a well fitting pencil skirt.ReplyDelete
Ha, thanks, Lorena! I totally lucked out on this skirt.Delete
Love love LOVE this outfit and how it looks on you :) Klassy classics with subtle twists, as a blogger I know ;) might say, it's maaavelous!ReplyDelete
Many thanks, Laurie! Who doesn't love a klassy outfit?Delete
Looking good klassy lady! I absolutely love your new copper bling! XXXReplyDelete
Thank you, Sasha! There is so little copper out there, but it's one of my favourites.Delete
So gorgeous!!!! My goodness! Very elegant and sophisticated----I feel like you look like you're going to a fancy lunch eat grilled fish and drink Prosecco!!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you - ooh, I want to go to that lunch! Shall we??Delete
Klassy indeed sweetie! It's great to see these shoes again, perfect neutrals. And you're so right about the cream skirt and stains. Just wear it and enjoy!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Anna! Yeah, you just can't stress over things lasting.Delete
This is a very subdued, "Classy Lady", look for you. You're right, you can't beat a nice-fitting pencil skirt for making your butt look great. I need to find one of those :)ReplyDelete
Yup, but still "me"! I love a good pencil skirt. Thank you!Delete
