I hope y'all enjoyed your extra day off today! Easter Monday is not technically a statutory holiday, so I did not get the day off. Boo - you know I had to wear some bright colours to make up for that!
- Blouse - Rock & Republic, thrifted; last worn here in August 2019 with a copper skirt
- Skirt - J. Crew, thrifted; last seen here in May 2019 with a Chanel-esque jacket
- Shoes - Effortless Bebe, Fluevog; last worn here in September 2019 with my big lady boss pants
- Coat (below) - Tangerine Jill, thrifted; last worn here in September 2019
Woo, that's bright. It's also very early...
here to see what it really looks like - with pink, neon yellow, red and white in it.
It goes with a lot. I've even worn it with these shoes before.
I could have done a necklace, but eh, didn't feel like it.
I saw two of my coworkers today; both of them popped into the office quickly to do password resets, so I had a nice gab with them. Hi, Jenn and Tom!
Outerwear - it was actually too cold to wear this today, but I froze in the name of Fashion!
- Cuff - thrifted
- Earrings - handmade for me by Sherri
- Gold/amethyst ring - Frances Jewelers, c. 1965, Dad's
And how was your Monday?
Your outfit today is quite sassy! The skirt is particularly amazing - the style and colours are gorgeous. The ruffled trench coat is lovely (but you were rather naughty to not keep warm!). Your father's ring is beautiful.ReplyDelete
Did it feel odd to see people at work after being alone this last while?
Keep well (and wear your woolies!).
Thanks, Nana! I love the skirt's texture. I know, I should have worn a scarf and gloves, but it was so sunny and beautiful...Delete
Yes, Dad's ring is one of my treasures. I got it when he was in a coma, just before he died in 1997. He wore it all the time, and I feel close to him when I wear it.
Yes! I just talked their ears off, ha ha! Thanks, Nana, yes, will wear layers. :)
Love that bobbly tweed, Sheila and so nice with the contrasting sheer texture of your blouse. You're so brave to go without an extra layer! I'm a bit of a scaredy cat in that regard and often end up boiling by midday in spring. Our mornings are still frosty. Your pink shoes look good enough to eat, in fact I think there were sweets like that with little pockets of chocolate inside when I was a nipper. Anyway, your outfit is beautiful today. Easter Monday was strange for me, to say the least. I suppose we have to find the spots of brightness where we can. I'm thankful all my family and friends are well for now and it's spring!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Juliana - ha, foolhardy is more like it! I'm notorious for not dressing for the weather!Delete
Yes, the shoes remind me of those pink foil-wrapped Easter eggs. Thank you!
I agree, we have to be thankful for what we have - many of us are very lucky compared to other folks!
I love that statement skirt and the bright blouse with it - I think I've said this to you before and recently too but I admire how you make the whole outfit spectacular instead of having just one statement pieces - it's something I've been trying to work on a little, I have pretty basic colours in my wardrobe, but trying to add in extra colour and not so many neutrals.ReplyDelete
"Every piece is special" is one of my clothing mantras, Mica. I try not to have any pieces in my wardrobe that I don't adore - when you have all items that you love, they often work even better together. I'll always encourage you to wear more colour! Neutrals are still awesome, but as accents (for me).Delete
Your yellow and sunny chartreuse outfit is a sight for sore eyes, especially as we are missing the sunshine of the last couple of days today. That tweed skirt and absolutely amazing, what a gorgeous mix of colours. I have to say I'd never be able to do a front tuck. I'd be forever trying to tuck it in at the back ;-)) I'm quite envious of that gorgeous candy pink trench. I had the extra day off yesterday, and as a consequence I'm now working today and tomorrow. Two days in a row, that's totally unheard of! Pff. xxxReplyDelete
Thank you, Ann! We have to make our sunshine, don't we? Give a front tuck a try! You never know - it does require a long, blousy style of shirt, though, and I'm not sure I recall you having too many like that.Delete
The trench is so gorgeous - such a lucky thrift find.
Outrageous! How dare your work make you...work! ;-P
I used to have a chartreuse coat, I'm looking at your fabulous outfit and wondering what the hell I was thinking of when I passed it on to a friend!ReplyDelete
Love this colour on you, it looks amazing with your hair and you do the half-tuck so effortlessly. Your trench coat and shoes are gorgeous andyour dad's ring is fantastic. He must have been a stylish chap! xxx
It's one of my favourite colours - such a juicy greeny-yellow. I'm sure the coat went to a good home! Thank you so much, and you know I'm just rolling with the tuck - no fussing, more of a "f**k it", ha! Dad was a pretty stylin' guy when he wanted to be!Delete
Oh, that trench-coat is marvelous!ReplyDelete
Isn't it lovely? Such a great find. Thanks, Ally!Delete
I did get Monday off and it was lovely. You look fantastic in this colourful combo. The shirt is beautiful and the tweed skirt complements in perfectly. The trench and the heels are both wonderful items and they finish this styling beautifully.ReplyDelete
Oh, that's awesome, Ivana - I'm glad you had an extra day off. Thank you so much - the bright colours made me happy.Delete
Lovely outfit Sheila and very Easterish - yellow for the Easter chicks and pink for the cherry blossom!ReplyDelete
You know I love these colours, too, Vronni! Very Easter-y!Delete
YESSSSS to ruffly trenchcoat! You look stttttttttttttylish! Nice to see co workers. I made Easter cards for my 79 year old friend from church who lives down my road and she came and knocked and stood at the end of our drive to say thank you. It was SOOO nice to see her!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Kezzie! I agree, seeing people - I didn't think I would miss it so much! Aw, that is so sweet of you - I bet she appreciated it!Delete
I miss my co-workers, and a long weekend doesn't really mean that much when you are working from home. Those colours are great together!ReplyDelete
Totally! Long weekends to me are spent on adventures - this didn't feel like anything out of the ordinary.Delete
What fabulously lovely hues for spring (chartreuse = swoon in my books!). Just the sartorial burst of seasonal pep and positivity we all need more than ever this year.ReplyDelete

Thank you so much, Autumn! I agree, chartreuse is one of my favourite colours too. This is colour therapy for me!Delete
What a beautiful, bright and happy outfit for a Monday Sheila !ReplyDelete
This is a spectacular skirt, love to see how you are tackling this, a true warrior.
Thanks, Lorena! It just felt right - I love these sunny colours. Thank you so much, my dear.Delete
woww, these colors are so fabulous, you rock in yellow (or sunny chartreuse!) and love it with the pink accents and the amazing ruffled trench!, Gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much! I love all the bright colours, yellow or chartreuse!Delete
Love this punch of neon bright with the fab tweed skirt. I wish I could get the hang of that half tuck - I just look undone and have hubby telling me that my shirt's hanging out ;(ReplyDelete
It was an eye-searer, ha ha! Ah, just do it until you like it - I fuss with it all day. Steve, shush, it's fashion!Delete
