This baby blue blouse has been a favourite of mine for over five years (Flashback here) and I'm getting close to 20 wears on it. It's such a useful style, and even though it has all these ruffles, I like the contrast with my "harder" clothes.
However, today was a day for soothing, soft clothes. The vest gave me a nice cozy layer without being too bulky.
This skirt is a silk velvet and as noted, it's incredibly soft and flowy to wear. It's cut on the bias, so it has a lot of movement, although one side of the hem dips down to the floor.
I hiked up the waist for my walk to work so that it wouldn't get damp on the sidewalk.
Matched to my shoes.
Outerwear - it's getting to be a little chilly for this cloth coat.
More warm/soft things.

I love these shoes, which is why I have had them in 3 other colours plus a variant style. When I spotted these snake-y patterned ones on consignment last year, I snapped them up.
I'm starting to look ahead to December, which will be a "Glitz and Glitter" month.
