Another week, another wool pencil skirt from my extensive collection. These things really are like Garanimals for adults — add a print blouse and solid topper, and you’ve got yourself an outfit. This particular blouse is one of my faves because it mixes a bunch of cool colours (which I love), like blue and green. An excuse to wear my blue suede pumps? I’m there!
I tried to add a bit of interest to this admittedly basic ensemble with my new Lulu Frost necklace. I also tried to take a close-up shot to show it to you, as promised, but … well, it took a few tries … and I still don’t have a good, all-in-one picture. I love long necklaces like this one, but they’re a pain in the butt to photograph so you’ll have to trust me that it’s cute.
And the “gardenshade” blouse made a very apropos background for it, no? For the record, I hate bugs, but this little scarab is definitely adorable. Lord help me if I see a real life beetle, however. Eek. (Unless it’s the vehicular kind of Beetle, especially the vintage ones like the specimen in our garage — those are also adorable, although don’t tell my husband I said that about our “Bert”. I don’t think “adorable” is the vibe he’s going for.)
