Ah, Mondays. Today's outfit just felt right. I'm doing a little "clothing as armour", a bit of wearing my power colour, and a smidge of fake it till you feel it.
- Top - Linda Lundstrom, thrifted; first worn here a year ago in August 2018 with purple leather (and purple hair - I was just growing out my hair then)
- Skirt - Mister Leonard, vintage 60s, thrifted; last seen here in May 2018 (!) with black and white patterns
- Shoes - Gentle Souls; last worn here in April with a salamander
- Coat (below) - Joseph Ribkoff, thrifted; last seen here in May
This is only my second wearing of this silver knit top (I bought it over a year ago for $9.50) and it didn't ring my bell that much this time, so off it goes to the giveaway pile.
Although I only wear this skirt once a year, I just love it - it's a gorgeous summer-weight wool, fully-lined, just so luxe. A keeper!
I wear it when I need to feel up and social, as well as when I want to hide. It's contradictory, but then, so am I.
- Cuff - thrifted
- Necklace/earrings - Sarah Coventry, vintage fair
- Silver/crystal ring - Soul Flower
- Shield ring - Nine West
Today, the teenage seagulls on the roof across from my stair pic location were squawking away at their parent.

They - and the teenage crows in our neighbourhood - are a raucous bunch!
What Is it about yellow that makes it such a mystery colour? I love how it’s your pump power colour honey- gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I don't know - but it's my power colour! Thanks, sweetheart!Delete
I like yellow and grey together, even if you weren't enjoying the top this time! And the yellow skirt is so beautiful! :) Hope you had a great day in your power colour!ReplyDelete
Me too, Mica - they are great colours together. It was...okay.Delete
I have not worn this grey and yellow combination in a while, you've reminded me of how good it looks.ReplyDelete
It reminds me of parakeets.Delete
I've never thought about wearing a certain colour when I'm in a certain mood, apart from the fact that wearing bright colours are making me feel better when I'm low. That Marigold yellow skirt is a delight and I love how you paired it with silvers and greys. That is not a combination I would ever have thought of. Those shoes are fab, and I'm actually loving shoes with ankle straps too. So comfortable, apart from looking great, obviously! xxxReplyDelete
Oh, I do it a lot, Ann! Red is my "I'm taking charge" colour, for when I'm feeling insecure.Delete
Thank you so much! I love yellow and grey. Ankle straps are awesome!
WOW, I've been absent for a long time, I love your hair.ReplyDelete
It has been a while, Polly! Great to see you. Thank you! It's been almost a year since I started growing out my gray!Delete
We have a little bird that always comes around 8.00pm to sleep on the camera at the front door. I think it's so sad, where are his family? Ha ha animals can teir us to tears can't they.ReplyDelete
Aw, that's so sweet, but also sad! Maybe you are his family?Delete
I know, what a pain they are! ;-PDelete
I totally understand your 'clothing as armour' and 'fake it til you make it' way of thinking. I do that quite a bit too. XReplyDelete
A lot of people use these tactics subconsciously, I think. Once I became aware that that's what I was doing, it was easier to "gear up" when I needed that boost or protection. Thank you, hon!Delete
I love yellow with grey, and yellow with silver looks even better!ReplyDelete
I tend to wear a lot of black or something quite masculine (and BOOTS) when I'm in need of armour.
Thanks so much, Mim! I like doing chunky boots and buckles too - I don't skew too masculine (unless I'm doing a suit) otherwise.Delete
I enjoy seeing yellow and grey worn together on other people, but I don't know if I would attempt it myself. I have lots of grey in my wardrobe but I guess I just haven't found the right yellow piece yet. If I'm not feeling my best, I need to wear something simple that also makes me feel powerful in order to get through the day.ReplyDelete
Give it a shot - you never know! I get what you mean, though. Thanks, Shelley!Delete
