Missed Monday; Inappropriately Green

I was off work yesterday, home sick. Whatever this illness is, it's nasty. I'm completely sapped of energy. L is also sick, but it's hit his throat/chest (I always get hit in the sinuses). 

This is what I'd planned to wear Monday, anyway. 
 Yes, I'm wearing long sleeves and boots - in August! Our temps are back down to normal (low 20s), and the haze is all gone. Our ocean breeze is back, huzzah!


  • Blouse - Topshop, thrifted new w/tags; purchased here for $24.25
  • Skirt - See By Chloe, consignment; last worn here (4th outfit) earlier this month
  • Boots - Vog Together, Fluevog, consignment; last seen here in June with a very short skirt


I will admit, it's a lot of coverage for an August day. I'm often seasonally inappropriate.
 I liked this new top - it was quite comfortable, and it steamed out nice and silky smooth. I do think it will look better with a slimmer or shorter skirt, but I was fine with this over-the-top boho look.

Getting another wear in of this gorgeous skirt before summer is fully over.
Sandals felt too bare with all the clothing coverage, so what the heck, boots it is!

How I really felt going to work today.
I would rather be back in bed
 You can see the beaded snake on the front there.

The stuff:
 I love these boots. Very comfy, even going up and down stairs (our building had to evacuate due to a fire alarm! No fire, just working on the elevators).

Old bling:
 Nothing newer than 1996!


  • Amber ring - c. 1996
  • Jade/brass ring - 1970s, Mom's
  • Earrings - LA Express, 1994


I slept most of yesterday - Vizzini kept me company, but took a break to snooze in the sun on the deck.
"Oh, I see you have roused yourself, Woman."
 Not for long. I slept a lot.
"You're practically a cat."
I hope you are all taking care of yourselves this week!

    I love your blouse, the details are amazing, and it matches so nicely with your skirt!. I don't know if it's 'seasonal appropriate', but it's a lovely outfit!

    1. Thanks, Monica - it really sucks!

      Thank you - I'm looking forward to wearing the blouse again. Long sleeves + the dark colour = seasonally not appropriate to me. :)

  7. That snake blouse is looking even better on! Hope you'll both feel better soon. I missed you yesterday. I was in bed about to drop off when I was suddenly wide awake, thinking, did I miss Sheila's post today? No joke, it really happened! Oh, and I wore boots too last weekend! xxx

  9. That green snake motif blouse is sumptuous with that stunning skirt. Such beautiful details and that color is so rich and yet somehow a little bit neutral. I am really sorry to hear that you are unwell. Now that I know you have the flu I am worried about you. Please stay home and stay hydrated. Rest up and enjoy. That’s an order my friend !!!

  10. I think this is flowy and beautiful Sheila! I am wondering how it would look with shirt tucked in.

    1. Cannot tuck it in, Lorena - it has no stretch, so it needs that leeway for me to move my arms.

  11. Very pretty outfit Sheila - it has a nice "Victorian" vibe about it. I am very familiar with the "I would rather be in bed" face.
