I am taking some much-needed time off work, so that also means a blog break. However, I do promise a big ol' juicy post when I'm back early next week. Maybe even some cat pictures.
|"You can't leave - how will my fans survive without me?"|
Of course, taking some time off meant that today was a nightmare, with 27 boxes of 7-weeks-late back-ordered kitchen supplies arriving at the office for me to unpack.
- Cardigan - no label, thrifted; last seen here in February with striped Dries
- Sleeveless sweater - Gap, thrifted; last worn here in January with my first Fluevogs
- Culottes - Michal Negrin, thrifted; first seen here in December 2017 with burgundy and grey
- Shoes - Seychelles; first worn here a couple of weeks ago with lots of Vizzini-bombs
- Coat (below) - Danier Leather, thrifted; last seen here last week
Since today was my last day at work before vacay, I cheated and did the denim-looking culottes. This is a pretty casual look for me for work.
I'm done with this cardigan - I love the colour, but I'm "meh" on it. My coworker admired it today, so as soon as I've washed it, it's yours, Simar. I only paid $6.95 for it and I wore it 3 times - that's barely over $2/wear. Chump change!
How I'm feeling...
Outerwear - I carried the gloves home and wore the scarf untied and the coat open.
- Cuff - thrifted
- Earrings - Plum
- Bronze ring - P. Sarpaneva, c. 1970s, vintage fair
- Amber ring - c. 1996

I am guessing we're having a closet swap soon.
Next week! This was our anniversary weekend!Delete
Enjoy your well-deserved break, Sheila! I do love a mustard cardie, but if you're no longer feeling it, you'd better make your colleague happy! Glad to see those culottes making another appearance before the closet swap. Those shoes rock! xxxReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Ann! I've been through at least 3 mustard cardis over the years - this will not be the last! I love the culottes - I might keep them out...Delete
Gorgeous culottes! They are outstanding . Love the mustard cardigan, but If it doesn’t sing to you, give it away!ReplyDelete
I am also taking a couple of days off on instagram. Working on a renovation. We ladies do wear many hats!
Enjoy! Loving the shining shoes!!
Thank you, Elle! Yes, you are on the same wavelength - if it doesn't work, it's go to go! Thank you, and enjoy your break too!Delete
You and Vizzini look so adorable in those photos, Sheila! Aside from Vizzini, who is obviously your best accessory, I love your brass bling and glittery shoes as well! ;) Hope you have a relaxing break, Sheila! XXXReplyDelete

And those culottes are so groovy, I love those sparkly details!, lovely with those shoes!

I got a Google from your comment about your finger turning green, written in the same sentence as your green-toned jewelry. ;-) Happy resting!ReplyDelete
Ha, it's like I planned it. ;-P Thank you, Mel-Bee!Delete
I've just noticed how much your hair has grown! Fab!ReplyDelete
I love the cardigan and it goes really well with those very unusual culottes...
