But I still have three days to get through, and that means lots of colour!
- Wool jacket - Gap, consignment, Vancouver; last worn here in September with a pouffy skirt
- Blouse - Tatum & Olivia, consignment; last seen here in October with my Tattoo Jacket for brunch
- Wool/angora skirt - Escada, vintage 80s, thrifted; first worn here in January with purples
- Shoes - Truths Pilgrim, Fluevog; last seen here in March to say farewell to Pluto's
- Sleeveless coat (below) - Only, thrifted; last worn here in September
This skirt is challenging to style due to it being three bold colours: PANK, red and dark purple.
I went with just basic white for the top, although with all the ruffles, this is anything but basic.
The skirt is wool mixed with a touch of angora - it's knit like a sweater.
here shows the idea well (link 'cause I love, of course).

Masked up - I went with a red one.

Do you have any PANK in your wardrobe? What's the brightest colour you wear?
Such a stunning outfit -- I love the contrast of the white ruffles against the PANK!ReplyDelete
The jacket makes the outfit look like a suit! Definitely a perfect combo, and a cheerful set of colors. I have one pink long sleeved shirt and a recently rediscovered bright PLANK beanie style hat. LOL Yesterday Fred asked me not to wear it on our nature walks because he sees it in his peripheral vision and it impacts the otherwise calm of the marsh walk. Just now he said “it’s not that I don’t like it, it’s what I would call a special occasion hat.”ReplyDelete
With each outing of the sleeveless coat I appreciate it more and more. Definitely a useful addition to have in your wardrobe. For many years it would frustrate me to dress nicely for an outing and then see the outer look not live up to the outfit due to having no appropriate outer wear.
You wear PANK better than I've seen it worn before. The coat is awesome-though is it warm?ReplyDelete
Fabulous in Pank! That sleeveless coat is dead klassy and the new gloves are perfect.ReplyDelete
I've got some PANK lipstick but it doesn't look right at this time of year, it's my Summer lippie! xxx
Yes, i do have PANK in my wardrobe! I recently bought a PANK tweed jacket and a PANK blazer!ReplyDelete
Must bear in mind to wear red with them some time, as it's such a brilliant combo, brightening up the darkest of days in an instant!
The skirt is fabulous - I'd never heard of the term intarsia knit though. Will have look at your link. I think I should have a lookout for one of those sleeveless coats to wear over my jackets. This is something my wardrobe is definitely lacking.
We too have a day off on Thursday because of Remembrance Day so with my usual Friday off it'll be a 4-day weekend for me too. Yay! xxx
No pank in my wardrobe. My riskiest colour is blush. I primarily have a black, white and beige colour scheme going on. That is why I enjoy your wardrobe so much - it suits you perfectly. Another wonderful outfit - I love everything about it especially the coat!ReplyDelete
Awesome outfit and a great mood booster too! I have a few pank lipsticks, nail polish and one sleeveless, drapey-neck top that you've inspired me pull out and wear. Love the cool shoes!ReplyDelete
I just picked up a very PANK dress at the opshop for $1 that I'm extremely pleased about as it was a $25 one that was such a hit last summer it sold out. I can't wait to wear it!ReplyDelete
I really like your outfit too - maybe it's just my screen but I thought the skirt was orange and pink and I got excited as on the same opshop trip I picked up an orange statement necklace and I know it will look great with the PANK dress! :) even the volunteer checking me out pointed out how nicely it would go together!
Totally awesome colours! Yes, I have a very pank sweater and I love it! Believe it or not I once had a pair of shoes, in brown, almost exactly the same as your shoes today!ReplyDelete
Now that's a skirt! Classic color-blocking hues presented in attractive design. As interesting as your outfits are is how you manage to find their extraordinary pieces.ReplyDelete
Wow..that’s an outfit Shiela!ReplyDelete
Colours are divine.
I have ‘pank’ H&M sock books. Bought from eBay, way after they were a fashion item. I love them ! x
This pank outfit is amazing. You wore it so well!ReplyDelete
This is definitely a full-on "Sheila" outfit! The pink in the jacket and skirt match up incredibly well, you would think they were sold together. Alas, I do not have any PANK in my wardrobe. The brightest colour I have is red, and in most cases it's part of a pattern, not a solid piece of colour. I love the way you incorporate all the brights into your wardrobe, but I will continue to happily rock the blacks and greys over here ;)ReplyDelete
I HAVE actually always wondered what Intarsia was! Thank you for the lesson.ReplyDelete
I don't have loads of Pank though I did wear that PANK cosplay outfit a while back!! The skirt is so funky and I always adore that top!x
This really brightened my day. I have GOT to get more PANK into my wardrobe!ReplyDelete
That's what I call a fab skirt - how I have missed being here.ReplyDelete
Love this PANk fabulousness!, it's a favourite colour and You Rock It!. Lovely colour combo and so delightfully matchy jacket!ReplyDelete
You and hot pink/fuschia are a match made in colour heaven. It's awesome to see such upbeat hues as winter descends rapidly on our world. Especially today, as we're receiving our heaviest snowfall so far this season. Not, of course, that I'm complaining about the weather for a second - especially in light of what so much of the Lower Mainland has suffered through in recent days.ReplyDelete
Big hugs & cheery wishes for the second half of November, my dear friend.

I do not have any PANK. I'm not sure it would work with my hair. It looks ace with yours, though. My brightest colour will undoubtedly be a green, either emerald or a vivid lime.ReplyDelete
