Although it's been a short week for me, it's felt very long. I consoled myself by wearing an old-ish favourite dress, and my new-to-me boots.
- Dress - I'M by Isola Marras, Florence, Italy; last seen here (3rd outfit) in September 2017 when we got home from vacation
- Boots - Vog Together, Fluevog; purchased here for $82.50
- Coat (below) - BCBG Max Azria, thrifted; last seen here last week
Look at the gorgeous view I had of the castle this morning!
When I don't feel like putting together an outfit, I usually default to a dress, but I actually just really wanted to wear this dress. It was pulled out and put into my "wear soon" area of my closet, with some of my loosey-goosey semi-planned outfits.
here, enjoy more of my vacation pictures!). It's featured in this Vimeo link here. Here's a screen cap of my dress - it's worn over shorts!
I like how my dress' patterns/fabric are exactly like the dress in the show - it's a very deliberate choice by the designer.
Outerwear - yup, no gloves needed. I see sun out there!
- Necklace - J. Crew, thrifted
- Glass bracelet - thrifted
- Jade/bronze ring - vintage 70s, Mom's
- Turquoise/silver ring - local
- Earrings - Stella & Dot, consignment, Vancouver
It made me smile when I read you got compliments on every piece you wore - I think that's because you know how to style things and make them shine! I miss dresses and ankle boot weather, I will need to get my boots out and ready so I can wear them as soon as it properly cools off here!ReplyDelete
I don't get that many compliments overall, so it was a nice surprise! I'm going to miss wearing my boots soon enough. Thanks, Mica!Delete
woww, lovely dress and lovely boots! and lovely accessorizing too!, lots of fabulousness indeed! completely normal that you received lots of compliments!ReplyDelete
I would love to see you in those dreamy ensembles, with turquoise cowboy boots!
Thanks so much, Monica! I totally need turquoise cowboy boots.Delete
What a perfect little dress, Sheila. I love the instant pattern mixing and the unusual, quite unexpected back. The dress was asking, no begging!, to be worn with those new-to-you Fluevog boots. Turquoise cowboy boots would be awesome! Note to self: buy beige fishnet nylons! xxxReplyDelete
Thanks, Ann! Fishnet nylons are so easy to wear - these ones are even control top!Delete
Oh hello stylish lady ! What a brilliant dress I love the outfit Sheila , also great minds think a like I've started to wear my natural colour fishnet tights the tights are fab when it's not quite warm enough to go bare legs . Have a lovely weekend Sheila xxReplyDelete
Thank you, Lesley! Aren't fishnets great? Thank you, you too!Delete
You are looking beautiful Sheila ! Oh and I love that you were able to find that dress and find another way of styling it. For me its one of the perks of the internet, the ability to see how other people wear the same item and be inspired.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Lorena! I love being able to find the exact item online, especially when it's designer.Delete
That's so funny, the lady taking our money at the car boot sale yesterday morning was wearing turquoise cowboy boots and I declared that i needed some in my life, too!ReplyDelete
That dress is fabulous - both the way you and the model wear it. I shall read your travel post later, I love holiday posts!
The boots are killer and the view of the castle is fantastic.
Have a fab weekend. xxx
We must have them! Thank you - I hope you like the post. I'll have to go up to the Castle sometime soon. Thanks, Vix!Delete
I love the fact that you wear statement necklaces so often. I have quite a collection from a few years ago when we saw them on every fashion blogger. I've been a bit hesitant to wear mine but am going to start now. Thanks for the inspiration!ReplyDelete
Who cares when they're trendy? The only good thing about that is that you can find lots of cool ones. Go for it!Delete
You sure don't wait to integrate new purchases into your outfits! I love these boots. If they were bigger, we might have had a fight over them. :-)ReplyDelete
Nope, I really don't! Better to know sooner rather than later if they are bad pieces for me. I would never have fought you!Delete
Another post full of such great style. We love watching what you piece together and I see the influence daily from your blog in Kailani's own fashionista daily styling. She will often reference something from a post or tell me to show Sheila her outfit. She is in awe of your pieces and especially the firecracker dress - she asked if you could save it for when she grows up (HAHA)ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Trisha! Aw, that is the best, knowing that Kailani's reading along and taking the inspiration she wants. AW! Ha, yes, if I get tired of that dress (HA) when she's old enough to wear it, I might consider loaning it to her!Delete
I think I have the same ASH boots l I really love your dress worn as a tunic. I also love the olive green jumpsuit tbut my favorite look by far is that fabulous dress with multicolor tabs !ReplyDelete
Beautiful macrame espadrilles!
I thought I had replied to this once, so if this is a duplicate please ignore. I was having some trouble with my Google account but I just fixed it.
I also adore your fabulous printed dress. I also default to dresses when pressed to come up with an outfit in a hurry.
Boot twins! Thank you so much, Elle! I know that firecracker dress is amazing, isn't it?Delete
No worries about the comments - stoopid google...
My computer got wonky. So I wasn’t able to close my comment properly. I hope you are well and having a wonderful week!ReplyDelete
Quite all right - happy week to you too, my dear!Delete
How lovely to have a dress that shows a fab bit of pattern play! The ankle boots add a delicious touch of quirkiness that I adore. Easy dressing that's also knockout!ReplyDelete
It's a very funky dress! Thank you, Anna!Delete
