Violetta

This is kind of a cheat outfit, well, atleast I consider it cheating because it takes absolutely no brain-power to put together on days where I can't be bothered dressing creatively and just need to look semi-presentable.  For those days - printed leggings, a collared shirt and a slubby knit of some sort is kind of my version of "dressing down." :)  You've seen these leggings before in a more work-appropriate look a while back, but this sweater is a steal at $10 over the last couple of weeks at the Supre sale.  While I usually don't go for this kind of thing, the beautiful color just kind of called to me and with all the wine-palette inspiration I've been dying to work for fall, I think I'm going to get a fair bit of use out of it.  When I do casual, I still like to keep little hints of interest going so I picked up a piece of ribbon to use as a bowtie on my first and most loved vintage silk blouse, threw on a pair of pom-pom decorated hoops that still make me smile everytime and topped off to give these grey ankle booties a last good-bye as these will be staying in my Auckland wardrobe for the foreseeable future.

  44. You have no idea how badly I wish the girls at my school considered looks like this "dressing down", I am sooooo sick of walking through a sea of sweats, plain neutrals and flip flops! I think the outfit looks great though. Love the blues with the magenta -- you go chica!

  64. If THIS is your "dressing down" outfit then I feel sick about the rags I wear when I decide to mellow out. Such a gorgeous outfit, LOVE the colours and that bow blouse is to DIE for. Lovely blog and I really like your writing style. Very witty!
