Another work outfit

(Inspiringly original title, eh? Took me all day to come up with it)

MyEdit's great post on thrifting silk button-down shirts coincided with an upcoming trip to Value Village. I hit the shirt rack as soon as I arrived and quickly found this ivory-coloured one with the original tags attached. Silk is a wonderfully luxurious fabric that drapes magnificently, can be layered without awkward bunching, and feels great against your skin. I layered it under a cowl-neck knit shirt and paired it with a plaid teal-and-brown wool skirt.

Silk Shirt – Thrifted (Jalouzie)
Brown top - Dynamite
Belt - ? (Sydney) (also seen here)
Skirt – Hand-me-down (Banana Republic)
Shoes – Elie Tahari (Winners) (also seen here)
Earrings – Vietnam markets


  1. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement Kat. I really appreciate you listening and providing such a great sounding board for me :)

    So happy we've gotten to know each other.

    Now your outfit! I love the houndstooth skirt! and The earrings really make your eyes stand out.

  2. I love that you paired that sweater with that collared shirt Kat. Looking good! (In other news, you seem to have a somewhat endless closet!)


I genuinely enjoy reading everyone's comments. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!
