Blues, Greys and a Giant Vest

Going back to work after a 4-day weekend was not fun - I had to get up so early! 
I chose to wrap myself in soft blues and greys, thinking of the late autumn skies (which are mostly grey, and only a bit of blue now).

  • Vest - Pink Martini, consignment; purchased here for $12.50
  • Blouse - Bird by Juicy Couture, thrifted; first worn here in September with funky Philip Lim
  • Trousers - Linda Lundstrom, swap from Caro; last seen here in January with a jacket with ginormous shoulders
  • Shoes - Gentle Souls; last worn here a few weeks ago in November, on another Monday
  • Coat (below) - Auckie Sanft, vintage 60s, thrifted; last seen here a week ago

I built the outfit around this new-to-me knit vest.
 I enjoyed swooshing about in it.

I like the patterns in the knit.
 Enjoying my high-waisted giant-legged trousers.

I've had these since August of 2017 - they felt weird to me then, very oversized and baggy.
 Now, they feel totally normal. I just had to wait for fashion to catch up to them!

Outerwear - bundled up in the Fuzzy Flamingo.
I didn't really like the vest hanging out the bottom, but I don't have a coat long enough to hide it completely. Ah, whatever.

The stuff:
Comfy shoes after a weekend in slippers!

Simple bling:
I had no energy to do more!

  • Earrings - Brenda Schoenfeld, 1992, vintage mall
  • Lapis lazuli ring/Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes

How many more days till the weekend??


  1. I really like the blues and greys together Sheila! That's a great vest! :)

    1. Thanks, Mica! I thought you might like the vest - it's very "you".

  2. Not many more days till the weekend! Keep on swishing...

  3. The femininity of the blouse slays me. I'm lying on the floor unconscious from its assault. But smiling. :)

    1. Lol, so glad you were able to rouse yourself and type. ;-P

  4. That's a fabulously swishy outfit, feminine with attitude from the heavy metal earrings and platform shoes. Hope your week flies by! xxx

  5. Such a delicious outfit, Sheila. I love how you played with those grey and blue shades. The blouse is so much my cup of tea, I do love a frilly blouse. The long swishy cardigan is a perfect companion for it. The Fuzzy Flamingo continues to make me smile. I live in hope of ever finding something similar, but I know chances are slim. Anyway, the weekend's on the horizon ;-) xxx

    1. Thanks, Ann! I also am a big fan of frilly blouses, and I loved how this one worked with the cardi.

      If I ever find another Fuzzy Flamingo, I will buy it and ship it to you!

  6. Those shoes really caught my eye, this is one cute pair. I like how these heels match your outfit. The long cardi is gorgeous!

  7. Having to work after a long weekend is always tiresome.
    Hope you're enjoying your weekend now! X

  8. That waistcoat is a winner. I love how you've played down the colours today, showcasing the understatement instead. Great look x

  9. The light blue and grey look so peaceful and elegant together - I love the big statement mall earrings !
    Lately I've been more into earrings and also into bigger and bolder vintage earrings. I found Chanel vintage for 15.00 and Guy Laroche from the 80s for abut 10.00!

    1. I love the earrings too - they're hollow and real sterling silver. I love bigass earrings. How cool that you found designer!!
