Studded and Mini-Skirted

I'm trying to force the weather to get warmer by wearing summer stuff. 
It's a t-shirt and a miniskirt! Maybe it will get sunny? 

  • Jacket - Dolce & Gabbana, vintage, thrifted; last worn here (2nd outfit) in May with pink and floral
  • T-shirt - Gen-O, thrifted; first seen here in May with a big skirt and tweed jacket
  • Skirt - Ann Taylor, thrifted; purchased here for $14.95
  • Shoes - Effortless Vivian, Fluevog; last worn here in April with vivid pastels

It did not happen. As I type this, in the early evening the grey clouds loom and threaten to dump more rain on us. 
I'm so ready for summer! I did an inventory of my not-yet-worn items, and most of them are my summer dresses. It's just been too cold to wear them. 

Anyway, enough grousing, as I know others are dealing with floods, droughts, and heatwaves. 
This is the first wearing of this new-to-me mini-skirt. 

Lest you think I'm being scandalous, I am wearing nylons. Co-tenant Emily squealed, "It's mini-skirt day!" and showed off hers.
My colleague Gary called this look "casual" due to the studded jacket. It does have a jean jacket-ish vibe. 

Without the jacket, although I never took it off. 
Too cold! 

I did some physical stuff in the office to warm up.
Sorted through giant cartons of reusable office supplies. Nothing goes to waste on my watch! 

Ready for some sunshine. 
I froze walking home in this. I wish I'd worn a coat over it. 

Thank goodness for warm silk scarves. 

  • Scarf - Lanvin, vintage 70s, consignment
  • Mask - Lazy Susan's

The stuff: 
Everyone loves these shoes, from my shredder bin guy to a random dude in the elevator.

Matchy bling: 
First wearing of this new-to-me necklace - it tangled with the pens I was sorting, but was otherwise good. I like long necklaces.

  • Necklace - Art Collection; purchased here for $7.95
  • Earrings - Plum
  • Wide silver cuff - vintage, thrifted, Powell River
  • Bracelet with glass stones - vintage 1920s, vintage mall
  • Steel/acrylic ring - Calvin Klein, thrifted
  • Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
  • Bug brooch - Le Chateau, c. 2000


  1. (Kezzie here- Google is being mean): our weather had been very changeable although this week, we have very warm weather. I went to a concert in London last night at a huge venue and it was unbearable.
    Your jacket does have denim vibes.
    I really like it. It is really well fitting and a lovely colour. The new mini is fun! The shoes deserve the admiration they receive!

  2. I love that skirt and how well the scarf compliments it! This is a really nice outfit Sheila and has me wishing for warmer weather so I could get some of my mini skirts out again! thank goodness it's back to more normal early winter temps and sunshine so I have temporarily packed away the winter woolies, haha!

  3. So cute! Maybe the end of June will bring your summer weather. The Tshirt looks very high quality.

  4. You do suit a mini skirt, Sheila, and this one's fun and fabulous! I'm sorry the weather gods are still playing foul. We're having +30°C tomorrow, so I'd gladly send over some of that! I'm not surprised everybody loves does shoes, they're absolutely adorable! xxx

  5. I love those shoes also. My swim suit has a hole in the knee, so I doubt I could rock a mini skirt, but it suits you.

  6. That is such a cute outfit - I love the pale blue with the patterned skirt. You could definitely wear that outfit here - we had a humidex of 41 degrees celsius yesterday. Fortunately today was not as hot...

  7. I love the denim-y vibe of that jacket and you do minis so well! xxx
