Do not adjust your screen! I am indeed wearing all neutrals.
- Jacket - Julie Haus, thrifted; purchased here for $34.95
- Sleeveless sweater (underneath) - Dana Buchman, thrifted; last seen here in December 2016 with Helmut and Avon
- Skirt - Gunex, thrifted; last worn here in October 2016 with orange brocade
- Shoes - Matisse; last seen here in August with a whale of a sweater
- Raincoat (below) - Thermal-Slicks, consignment; last worn a couple of weeks ago here
Do you remember when I was so challenged by neutrals that I did two full months of them? Just for fun, here's November 2012's recap of my all-neutral month during my year-long 30-items-for-30-days challenge.
But enough of my pontificating, let's talk clothes! This jacket was all kinds of awesome to wear today and I am now totally spoiled by wearing silk-lined wool - it breathed so wonderfully!
Oh, it rained today. I got soaked both ways going to and from work, but the worst of it was prevented by my PINK raincoat here. I was also super-visible in the gloom - safety first!
white floral Doc Martens get worn in this weather - they are totally waterproof.
- Chain/leather bracelet - thrifted
- Gold cuff - thrifted
- Snakeskin "Gucci" bangle - gift from Mom and Dad, c. 1987, Italy
- Floral ring - Sarah Coventry, vintage 70s, Powell River antique shop
- Amber ring - c. 1997
- Earrings - Weiss, vintage 60s, vintage fair
Allow me to sum up how I feel about the weather.
I love your potty-mouthed sock collection!ReplyDelete
Hee, me too, JS! Thanks!Delete
Super cute raincoat!!!! I need to be on the lookout for one :DReplyDelete
Cute AND useful! That's a win!Delete
Oh, that jacket is WONDERFUL! You look great in this outfit. Love the socks, too.ReplyDelete
It's pretty cool, isn't it? I really loved it. Thank you, Radostin! So good to see you.Delete
Ha I love those socks! :)ReplyDelete
I really like your neutral outfit. Sometimes I feel I look a bit boring in neutrals - but your mix of textures is anything but boring! :)
They're awesome, aren't they? I think texture is the key to making neutrals work - they have to have some visual interest or they're just blah. Thanks, Mica!Delete
I'm in love with this jacket, such a fabulous cut, it's stunning!ReplyDelete
You've created a fab outfit, with lots of interesting textures and details, and a pair of stunning shoes; every piece is cool but they rock together!.
(those socks ;DDDDD)
Thank you so much, hon. It's a wonderful cut - just amazing to wear. Aw, thank you, I'm so glad you like it. Hee, the socks are the best!Delete
Haha I had to smile at the socks and I love the blazer - cool piece.ReplyDelete
Oh dear this does nothing for me. I don't mind a touch of neutral here and there but I fear your personality isn't shining through here at all Sheila. Thank goodness for that pop of pink otherwise I really wouldn't have known it was you!ReplyDelete
PS the jacket is totally fab, but add a bright leather pencil skirt next time so that I can give it a fair review. Sorry!
That's cool, Anna! We don't always like every outfit that someone does. *I* liked this (a lot) and I'm the one wearing it. I'll definitely be doing this jacket again with another bottom! I think this is an outfit that doesn't quite come across in pictures.Delete
