Profesh In Pink

Today, we had a senior VP in our office from another city - I dressed up, as we're much more casual on the west coast than the rest of Canada. 
Boss pants! I'm totally in lurve with these plaid pants. 

  • Blouse - Talbots, thrifted; last worn here in January with bronze pleats
  • Pants - Karen for Simonsen; purchased here for $7.49
  • Shoes - Effortless Bebe, Fluevog; last seen here in April for a frilly brunch
  • Coat (below) Auckie Sanft, vintage 60s, vintage fair; last worn here in February

These trousers are a woven pattern, in two shades of pink, plus burgundy. 
As I pointed out to my colleague Carol-Anne, none of the pinks in this outfit match either the pants or each other. 

"But they GO!" she exclaimed (I've been mentoring her on clothes and style in general for a few years). 

I loved this outfit and felt very Profesh in Pink. 
A good butt view is essential - pants that don't make your bum look fabulous do not deserve to be in your closet! 

Incognito outerwear - I was really hoping that today the sun would come out, and I could walk home with my coat open, and not have to wear my gloves. 

Done up. 
I walked to work both was like this. It's going to be a shock when the temperatures are finally over 10-12 degrees during the day. 

Some favourites - that's the softest silk scarf. 

  • Scarf - vintage, thrifted
  • Gloves - consignment
  • Mask - by Mom

The stuff: 
Such good shoes. That's a very comfortable heel. 

Gold-ish bling: 
I briefly considered wearing silver jewelry (I chose the belt before the jewelry), but liked this faded gold look more. 

  • Belt - vintage 80s, thrifted
  • Necklace - 2018, Eaton's, c. 2007
  • Cuff - found 
  • Earrings - Kenneth Cole Reaction, thrifted
  • Leaf bracelet - Trifari, thrifted
  • Rings - vintage 70s, Mom's

Today is Mom's birthday! Happy Birthday!! I wore her rings today, so we'd be close. We'll be getting together tomorrow for a long overdue Mom-Day Adventure, but in the meantime, please wish Mom a happy birthday (she reads all my comments).
"You should call her."

I'm going to, Vizzini, jeez! 


  1. Wishing Sheila's Mum a very happy birthday, and a glorious Mum-day adventure to both the lovely ladies 😊

  2. Happy birthday, Sheila's Mom! I love following along on all your adventures together :)

  3. Happy birthday, Sheila's mom! You raised a wonderful, funny, caring woman and I'm delighted and grateful to share a little bit of her life, and yours, on her blog. I love it that she wears your jewelry.

  4. Happy birthday Sheila's mum. You have a wonderful relationship with your daughter. So many mother-daughter relationships are full of accusations, jealousy and bitterness. I envy you a bit and am thankful for all the postings on your outings. Greetings from northern Germany.

  5. Happy, happy birthday Sheila's mom! Hope you had a wonderful day. Enjoy your day with Sheila as well! 🌷😊❤

  6. Also, absolutely LOVE this outfit Sheila!

  7. You look great! Professional and stylish.

  8. I love all these pinks! (Wait until you see how many shades of pinks are going into the embroidered rose skirt. . .)

    Happy birthday, Sheila's mom!!!!

  9. Happy Birthday Mum from Deep in the Heart of Texas!

  10. Happy birthday to your lovely Mum, Sheila!
    Such a great outfit: profesh yet fab! Those trousers are fantastic on you, and yes, they do make your bum look fabulous. Love the symphony of pinks and the faded gold bling. That leaf bracelet is to die for!
    I do hope there are some warm days ahead of you very soon. We've had temps in the low twenties all week, and - wait for it - I've been going to work bare-legged!
    Enjoy your Mom-day adventure, can't wait to read all about it. xxx
    P.S. Re. your comment on my blog: I am definitely hearing you on all the blogging extras. I usually don't have the mental energy either ...

  11. Happy Birthday, Sheila's Mom!
    You look awesome in pink. Beautiful as the coat is I hope you can pack it away soon.

  12. Sheila, this outfit is off the charts perfect! The fit (like the pieces were made for you), the lines, the colors, the accessories, the whole kit and kaboodle is just outstanding! I totally understand the “profesh” vibe. :)

    And now for something extra special…

    Always so enjoyable to “see” you on the Mom-Day Adventure! Thanks to Sheila, I’ve “been” to your home, appreciated your art, and feel like surely we must have met. Here’s to your sparkle and those glorious Mother-Daughter selfies!

    Cheers to you and Sheila, Laurie

  13. As I get older, I begin to actually appreciate pink! Around the time I grew up, all the media favoritised tomboys and made fun of girly girls. I guess Legally Blonde was a turning point because she seems ditsy but she passed law school so she has to be smart!

    Happy birthday to your mom!My compter is doing weird things so if this posts as gibberish that is why.

  14. I love how this is professional but still so you! All the shades of pink do look great together! Happy belated birthday to your mum too!

  15. Nice office outfit. :)
    I hope your Mom had a great birthday and you two had a nice day together. :)

  16. I agree, all the pinks go together. You have an eye for that. When I opened this post I went: "My my, what do we have here, how corporate". Then a read about the visitor at the office. You were totally the part.
    Happy belated birthday wishes to your mum from me as well.

  17. I hope you had a lovely birthday, Sheila's Mom! The pink blouse looks great with those pants - I agree with your colleague - they may not "Match" but they definitely "Go". You have taught her well ;)

  18. All of these pinks do indeed go! I'm a huge fan of plaid and these do look rather fabulous, especially the rear view. I hope your mom had a wonderful birthday x

  19. Looking fabulously profesh in pink!, and you rock Boss Pants!. Love that everything goes, love the checked pattern and the cool shoes with the coat! wow!
    Belated Happy Birthday, dear Sheila's mom!

  20. Joyful birthday month wishes to your sweet Mama! I hope that she had a fun-filled, fantastic day.

    Very lovely outfit! I am totally digging the fantastic selection of jewelry you partnered with it.
