- Dress - Talbots, thrifted; purchased here for $24.95
- Shoes - Garden of Enjoyment Rita, Fluevog; last worn here in May 2020 (Flashback there too)
- Jacket (below) - Gap, consignment, Vancouver; last seen here in April with florals (Flashback there)
This dress is best seen in motion - the inserts at the hem make for a swingy, flippy skirt. I really wanted to twirl for someone in this.
As you might have guessed from the coat, it's much cooler out than it was last week.
- Mask - by Mom
- Filigree cuff - St. Paul's Cathedral gift shop, London
- Bracelet - Coro, vintage 70s, Mom's
- Earrings - thrifted
- Lapis lazuli ring/Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
My schedule is mixed up this week, so it's back to work for me tomorrow. Two whole days in a row - how strange that feels!
Morning there Sheila, I don't have to pinch those earrings because I have very similar but I agree these are some of my favourite silver pieces of yours too! I adore blue so I love this jammy dress. I reckon the swirly hem adds interest. I adore those shoes too. I will be holding on to masks for a while longer. Take care ShazxxReplyDelete
Good morning, Shaz! Ha, I love how avaricious you are over my jewelry. Good thing you don't live close, heh heh. Thank you so much - I adore the swirly, twirly hem. Yup, masks are here to stay, for sure. You take care too, my dear friend.Delete
Aww, what a lovely dress. I love that shade of blue and the print is really nice.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Anca!Delete
I really like the pink jacket over the blue dress! Pink and blue is a combo I wear a lot :) While I don't have 30 masks I am keeping hold of them - being unlikely to be vaccinated this year (thanks to our terrible government) I suspect mask rules and lockdowns will continue to come and go until we get some more vaccines in this country!ReplyDelete
I liked that too, Mica - I put the jacket back on a few times when I got chilly in the office. I'll probably reduce my number of masks (there are a bunch I don't wear), but I think they are here to stay.Delete
That really sucks about the lack of vaccines in Australia! I hope that gets sorted out soon.
Lovely - especially with the PANK jacket!ReplyDelete
I agree, thanks, Vronni!Delete
Imagine having to go back to work on a Monday, and realizing you'll have to work a full week! Eek! But I'm taking Friday off, so there!ReplyDelete
That dress is a delight, and I bet it made you feel a whole lot better about Monday. Especially with your PANK jacket on top!
I'm loving the shoes too, and your filigree cuff from St. Paul's Cathedral.
I've got close to 30 masks too but I don't think I'll be ditching them any time soon. After that, perhaps we can make a souvenir patchwork thingy out of them :-) xxx
I'm trying not to think about that, and to enjoy my 3 days while I have them, Ann! I'm enjoying my Friday off, for sure, though.Delete
I love this pretty dress - it's so feminine and swooshy. It did make me feel better! Thanks so much.
Yeah, I'll be keeping mine too, aside from ones I don't like or don't wear. I love the idea of a souvenir!
That is such a pretty dress and those are seriously great shoes. Kind of cowgirlish with the back dropped buckle being reminiscent of a cowboy's spurs. What a temperature difference for you. Hard to fathom going from blistering heat to needing a jacket within a week.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Nana! I think you know I love the cowgirl look, so I love that you see it in the shoes! Yes, we are back to our usual mid-20s, such crazy weather.Delete
Ooo, the two bracelets are lovely, especially the cuff from St Paul’s in London. Best souvenirs ever - jewelry or clothing!ReplyDelete
The dress and shoes with that glorious plank jacket make for a perfect ensemble. Every time you add an amazing jacket to your outfits I am reminded of how the right jacket can up the ante of any outfit.
As for masks, I figure they will work well in flu season or plane flights so am keeping mine nearby. We continue to wear ours when food shopping or if we have to go into a building (post office, library, etc).
Here’s to making the most of your work week using clothing and color therapy!
Thanks, Laurie! I think I've gotten clothes or jewelry on every trip I've done as an adult. Jackets can make a huge difference in making an outfit look done. I will be keeping a large percentage of mine for those very occasions. We're still recommended to wear them in indoor public spaces.Delete
Thanks again, my dear!
That is a lovely jammy dress! The past two days we have had a humidex of 40 degrees celsius so we are getting your heat from last week.ReplyDelete
I have made a significant $ investment in masks and I will continue to wear them on public transit or anywhere that is crowded, including airports, etc. Not getting rid of them any time soon.
Thanks, Shelley! Sorry about that - I hear the "heat dome" is wreaking havoc on the prairies now. :(Delete
I so agree. They just seem like common sense now, don't they?
That dress looks fab with the pank jacket! Loving the cut of the skirt, I bet it's a joy to witness in action! xxxReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Vix - it's swooshiness in motion!Delete
Lovely jammy dress and even lovelier with the PAnk jacket and fabulous shoes!, You Rock It!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Monica - I like the rock & roll vibe of the shoes.Delete
If ever a reson to mental helath shop, going to the dentist woudl be one. I too dread it, even thogh I've never had cavities. I love the jacket and color pop.ReplyDelete
I totally agree, Sam - it made the day easier, for sure. Thank you!Delete
You know I love jammy dresses, Sheila! You look fabulous! And your pank moto jacket is a brilliant addition to this outfit. Those shoes have me swooning, too, and I am hankering big time for a thrift shop adventure!ReplyDelete
I adore them too, Shelbee! I don't know why more people don't wear dresses 24/7! Thanks so much!Delete
Great easy, peasy look that is still a stunning one. I've also been wondering about what will happen to all of our masks but I think the time that we'll be done with them is still long into the future.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! I tend to agree - I will be wearing a mask in crowded public spaces for a while, even after my 2 weeks, post-second shot period is up.Delete
Splendidly pretty! Blue - especially these dark, inky, alluringly mysterious shades - is head-turningly stunning on you, my beautiful friend.ReplyDelete
I plan on being a very long-term mask wearing holdout. My immune system is about as strong as a wet tissue at the best of times due to some of my chronic illnesses and the overall state of my health, so while I take great comfort in knowing that if I did contract C-19, the jabs should help to lessen its severity, I'm still not rushing to put myself at risk of falling seriously ill with this brutal disease.
Big mid-July hugs coming your way!

I loved wearing this lovely dress, Autumn - it's so very feminine and pretty.Delete
I hear you - I plan to wear them whenever I'm in a crowded public space, at least until we see BC with 80% of folks with double shots. I can't see NOT wearing one to a concert or big public event! Good for you - and they are going to be much more social acceptable too.
Thank you - big hugs back!
You make me pine for being able to wear sleeveless dresses. It is a beauty.ReplyDelete
Wear them anyway, Greetje. Who cares about saggy arms when you could wear a spectacular dress like this!?Delete
