Things are looking up slightly, as it was raining by end of the day.
- Vest - Pink Martini, consignment; last seen here in April with pink and grey
- Top - Talbots, thrifted; last worn here in June with leopard for lunch
- Skirt - Tatum & Olivia, consignment; purchased here for $12.00
- Shoes - Zoomies Ishshoes, Fluevog; last seen here (2nd outfit) in July with orange vintage
My "view" of the Castle this morning. I caught a seagull zipping by.
First wearing of this new-to-me graphic skirt. It was fabulous all day.
That felt like it needed something else, so I threw on my own shroud of grey.
- Bracelet - vintage fair
- Silver/onyx ring - Tocarra, vintage fair
- Shield ring - Nine West
- Earrings - vintage fair
My best black and white accessory is a purry one.
I love this new skirt. I am never sure if squares & circles work together but now you have convinced me that they definitely do! Vizzini is definitely the best accessory :). LiseReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Lise! Graphic shapes nearly always work well together. Go for it!Delete
He is, too bad I can't carry him around in public, ha ha!
Simple and outspoken combined in one snazzy outfit! Alas for the smoke...we saw a similar photo from Robin where the far side of their backyard was draped in grey smoke. Hoping for all of you that rain comes and abates the fires, and wind currents disperse the smoke. Even here in NY the sun’s rays are mitigated by the smoke.ReplyDelete
Anyway, back to the vibrant joy of your outfit!
It's just awful right now, Laurie, and it's spread right across North America. The rain over the past couple of days here was nice, but the smoke is still very thick.Delete
Thanks, my dear!
Good afternoon there Sheila, I love this outfit! Clever to pick out the grey as well as the red from that gorgeous skirt. You know I related to your line about you like simple and elaborate. I love simple classy colour pieces and think that's me then I also love feminine, bohemian, floral and soft pieces too ( I used to think I had to have one style but not any more!) hmm think a certain blogger is a good influence. Hope these fires abate soon. Fancy living so close to a castle! ShazxxReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Shaz! I like 'em both - you can have as many styles as you like! Who says we always have to be/like the same all the time? Glad to be a good influence on you!Delete
I hope so too. I'll have a special post about the Castle in a couple of weeks. :)
Such glorious colours together; loved the outfit - and the black accessory! I do hope your air clears soon.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Vronni! I really hope so too - it's been awful to breathe. :(Delete
Fabulous circles and squares! It looks even better with the long grey vest! Infinitely better than the grey view of the castle. It would look romantic if one didn't know it was smoke haze! Black and white accessories were the perfect choice, especially the purry one! My Monday was rather hectic but thankfully followed by a blissfully quiet Tuesday at home! xxxReplyDelete
Thanks, Ann! I felt it needed a little extra something, and I liked the vest. Yes, I find the Castle very romantic, but not smothered in smoke.Delete
My purry accessory is always my favourite. I also had a blissfully quite Tuesday!
Oh what a grey sky, scary, lucky the rain came. I love graphic skirts, and the best is perfect for it!ReplyDelete
Unfortunately, the rain didn't really help, Nancy.Delete
love this red and grey combo. The skirt is gorgeous and so is the long vest. You look fantastic.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Ivana!Delete
Red and black isn't my favorite color combo but red, black, grey, and white? Love it!ReplyDelete
I hope that rain clears away some of your smoke! Very sad to hear all the bad news coming in from the west coast.
I find red/black a little too "dragon lady" or overtly sexy, but I love more neutrals in there. Thanks, Ashley, but it doesn't seem to have helped. It's a weird time...Delete
What a great outfit! I love the color combination and the top, the shoes, the awesome skirt, the vest and everything! The black and white purry accessory really completes the outfit.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Cheryene! I love the combo, and the kitty is the purry cherry on top.Delete
Aaaah the new ribbon skirt! It is fabulous.ReplyDelete
I've got a fortnight off, so my Monday was great - bit of freelance for a science fiction magazine, then beer in the sunshine at the pub.
It's cool, isn't it? I like it too.Delete
Oh, Mim, that sounds so fun! enjoy your two week vacay!
I love the combo of the top and skirt together, what a great pairing, especially with the grey vest! :) I really need to wear more red! It's a fun colour :)ReplyDelete
I smiled at your comment on my blog - I do need some new supportive shoes for my knee but I am refusing to buy them as surely next week will be the week my at home exercises and gentle walks cures it, ha! Plus I'd have to go in store to make sure I tried on a few and got the most supportive ones and I'm not up to that right now. My knee is fairing better but I might have to admit defat and find a new physio soon. I keep holding out hope it will fix itself, with the exercises and gentle walks it is doing much better than at the start of the pandemic!
I love these colours together, Mica. If I ever had to limit my colour palette, it would be black and white, plus red. I love red!Delete
You do, young lady! Getting better supportive shoes will help your feet in the long run, so that you don't have to go back to sneakers. Get better soon!
I love the lines on the skirt combined with the circles on the top. The colours look great together. Very unusual shoes! Thanks for linking up!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Emma!Delete
I see you are wearing your purchases right a way! How it should be !ReplyDelete
That skirt was a great find. I am in awe at the fires and the fact that you are getting all that smoke...
You know I like to do that! :)Delete
Ugh, the smoke was so awful - we had haze for nearly a week.
