As we're now in the home stretch of the last days of March, and spring officially starts in the next couple of days, I'm really trying to get a last few wintery things worn before I pack them away.here) with this fabulous new-to-me skirt today, but the weather said, "Nope, no way, no how, not gonna happen."
- Sweater - Judith & Charles, consignment; last seen here (3rd outfit) in February for a weekend hangout with friends
- Skirt - Silvian Heach, consignment; purchased here on the weekend for $35.00
- Shoes - Chie Mihara; last worn here in October 2018 with thrifted Miu Miu
- Cape (below) - Coracle Clothes, vintage 60s, pass-along from Sheila A; last seen here in December 2018
That teddy bear top is HOT. This is the temperature on our deck today, as of 5:45 pm:
Yes, that's 30 degrees! It's nearly 90 F. Zoiks! And it's supposed to stay like this all week. That really throws a wrench in my wardrobe plans!
So I switched to this simple cropped wool sweater (still good in an air-conditioned office), changed all my accessories to copper, and voila!
Due to its neoprene nature, it swung like a bell on me, and stood out from my body.
Know what else it has?
It was a little chilly in the morning - too chilly not to wear a coat at all - so I wore my cape. The colours went perfectly.
- Belt - Renoir, vintage 60s, vintage fair
- Solid cuff - Renoir, vintage 60s, Grandma J's
- Copper/enamel cuff - Matisse, vintage 60s, vintage fair
- Necklace - vintage, consignment
- Earrings - Matisse, vintage 60s, Grandma J's
- Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
So cool -- figuratively if not literally! Love the copper with the turquoise:)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Cynthia! I really liked the turquoise with it too.Delete
Gorgeous skirt and cape! Way hot! Wow! Still love that Teddy Bear sweater ensemble.ReplyDelete
I love the teddy bear top, but it's way too hot to wear unless it's freezing cold out. I may have missed my window to wear it. Thanks, hon!Delete
Love the turquoise jewellery and the cape! I bought my first ever cape this year! I can't wait to wear it this winter, I'll have to include some photos on my blog. XReplyDelete
Thank you, Jess! Woo, capes are fun - but really hard to carry a shoulder bag with. I would love to see it this winter!Delete
That skirt is even better on, what a fabulous shape it is! How exciting to be on the verge of breaking up and getting some glorious warmth, too.ReplyDelete
I haven't worn any of my capes this year - what's going on? xxx
Isn't it the coolest thing? It makes me giddy to wear something so fun, Vix! What? Where are your capes?Delete
Ooooh, I love the copper and turquoise jewellery - I would keep it out all year round :) LiseReplyDelete
I have even more than this, Lise! I do keep the copper/turquoise pieces out, and I've cut my copper collection a little bit. Thank you!Delete
Oh wow 30 is really hot for spring for you! it was 36 here today. It's supposed to be autumn, but apart from slightly cooler mornings and evenings you'd never know, haha!ReplyDelete
I really like that blue skirt on you, it's so fun! :)
Woo, that is a hot day! It never gets that hot here. Thanks, Mica! I had so much fun wearing it.Delete
Admiring two of your posts this morning made me realize how important your blog is to me: it allows me to see what you choose to wear and reminds me of our personal connection. Then I saw and commented on Ann's blog about visiting your home-town, which caused me to reflect on how our friendship has literally enlarged my world. Both thoughts make me dance a little jig!ReplyDelete
Aw, thank you so much, Ally! Isn't that funny that Ann found a book about Victoria? I love how we have all become interconnected. This - my blog - is the best thing I've done in my life, just for that reason. Hugs!Delete
I wondered why you were wearing sandals...how fabulous to have summer temperatures in March!ReplyDelete
Love the outfit and the bling is wonderful!
I know, crazy in March! Thank you so much!Delete
So pleased to hear you're having the weather on your side. But surely, those 30°C are because your deck is a sun trap? If not, then this is really exceptional for March, isn't it? But how wonderful to be able to go tight-less and wear sandals. And what a fabulous skirt that is! It looks really gorgeous with the short sleeved sweater and your copper/turquoise bling. xxxReplyDelete
Ha ha, you are the only one who noticed, Ann! Yes, the thermometer was in the sun, and in a glassed-in deck, so yes, it was not actually that hot outside (only up to 19, I think). The temps are still record-breaking, though.Delete
Thank you! I really loved the skirt.
Oh wow 30? that's like here, well yesterday we had 39.ReplyDelete
Fab skirt and the pockets!! yay! ! and neoprene?!! i love that fabric - this skirt is a dream come true.
It's really hot for us for this time of year, but see Ann's comment - it was not actually that hot outside. :)Delete
I know, isn't it an amazing skirt? I love it.
omg, this skirt looks magnificent and love its blue color and shape! and it looks fab with the cape (such a brilliant ensemble!) Love it!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you! This was a hidden gem, for sure.Delete
Holy Cow! 30 degrees in March is just crazy!! I freakin' adore that skirt - that is a piece that would make me giddy if I had it. Love the whole outfit.ReplyDelete
I know, crazy, right (although you'll see I slightly exaggerated it, hee hee)?Delete
The skirt makes me giddy!
Love, love, love that huge skirt and yay, for you those pockets! Spring dressing is always so difficult to gauge temperature-wise. This looks like a happy balance xReplyDelete
Isn't it magnificent? I know, layers and other temperature controls are needed!Delete
