Teal, Leather and Dots

When you have a statement pair of shoes, it's best to build a simple outfit around them. 
 This qualifies as simple in my book.

  • Silk blouse - White House|Black Market, thrifted; last worn here in January with greys
  • Skirt - Danier, thrifted in Powell River; last seen here in January in my secret Trek suit
  • Shoes - Sol Sana; purchased here for $120.00
  • Jacket (below) - Club Monaco, thrifted; last worn here in May

A loose, drapey, buttery soft silk top.
 No need to tuck it in! I have a black camisole on under it for extra smoothing properties.

And a simple black leather skirt on the bottom.
 It was a bit windy and chilly today (despite being sunny) - still "leather weather" for me!

A light coat for coverage.
 Yup, still pretty simple.

The stuff:
 You can't really see the dots/dashes so well in the first pictures, but they're there! These shoes were fantastic to wear all day, both at my regular office job, and at my WW meeting. Winners!

Silver bling:
Just enough bling and sparkle so I know I'm dressed up!

  • Bangle - local
  • Dragon bangle - Lazy Susan's
  • Crystal/silver ring - Soul Flower
  • Shield ring - Nine West
  • Earrings - thrifted

As of tomorrow, I am on vacation for a whole week! SO excited! I'll be back on Sunday to regale you with tales of adventure, but my overall frequency of posts will be less while I'm off. Gotta chill, gotta relax. A very happy weekend to you all!


  1. What a wonderfully tactile outfit, Sheila! Those shoes are such fun, too.
    Have the best weekend and a wonderful break, too. xxx

  2. So soft and sensual - I love the teal top and skirt together, and the shoes are divine.

  3. This is the perfect simple but killer outfit. Love it!

  4. You picked the perfect outfit to compliment those killer shoes! I love the teal top, which has a natural elegance all of its own. Have a most wonderfully relaxing vacation! xxx

    1. Had to keep it simple, Ann - thank you! I am so looking forward to being off!

  5. It might be a simple outfit, but it doesn't look it, with the little details you've added through the shape and textures! :)

    Enjoy your well deserved time off!

  6. Hello Sheila, I love the leather skirt on you. Very eleagant and beautiful.

    Many hugs and kisses, xxx

  7. I hope you have had a wonderful break.

    I love those shoes and they look like they would go with just about everything. The outfit is both cool and elegant and I love the 'light' coat.

  8. I love this deceptively simple, three color look ! The shoes! Dot Dash Fabulous!

  9. Looking good my friend - what a fabulous skirt.

  10. Ooooooo, it's all about the shoes today Sheila! These dotties are beautiful - are they comfy?

  11. Killer shoes, and of course, there's nothing better than a "simple black leather skirt".

  12. Sheila... your pins are to die for!
    Blesses with fabulous legs that suit an ankle strap, not very many people are so lucky. :oP
    That teal is a delight and those shoes need to be making their way to my house as soon as your done with them!!

    1. Thank you, Samantha! Ha, back away from the shoes, lady!
