Skirt: Jeanswest 'Helena' black jacquard skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in black patent
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga RH work in 2005 Magenta


Yes, another long sleeve top, pretty skirt combo. I've been very uninspired this week, sorry! Just so cold and wet in the mornings again, not very nice after our warm weekend. Have to admit, it's been nice to have an easy ready-to-go outfit to fall back on. Although I may have been wearing my skull scarves a bit much - a colleague noticed this one and was amazed I could have a cheerful pink scarf covered in skulls. He's quite amused I have so many colours and variations, haha.


Last worn: printed leather jacket, Alexander McQueen floral skull scarf, grey long sleeve tee, jacquard skirt, patent flats, Balenciaga magenta work.

Here's what I wore for casual Friday today:

Jeans for casual Friday! I bought this grey jumper earlier in the year in Melbourne, thinking it would be really practical and I'd wear it often. This is only the second wearing and I'm surprised I haven't worn it as much as I thought I would. This scarf on the other hand, I thought may be a nice neutral I'd reach for now and then, and I'm wearing it a LOT at the moment as it seems to go with everything. Funny how that happens. Maybe points to me needing to understand my wardrobe better before I make purchases?

Do you have things you wear more or less than you thought you would when you bought them? Or tips for how to identify things you won't wear often when shopping?

  1. hey mica! i've loved the outfits you put together this week. you did a great job (as always) i love that pink, purple and black outfit above. it's so pretty together. i also love the different shades of blue you used for the second outfit. oh yes! i wear some things over and over. others are a little more challenging and sit in my closet. hahaha when buying, i try to think of at least 3 ways i would wear that outfit before purchasing or 3 places i could wear the outfit.

  5. I adore black and pink together! It's funny how a male co worker noticed your cheerful skull scarf lol I think when shopping we all fall back to what we feel comfortable with...for me it'd be blazer fitted around the waist and boot legged jeans to flatter my "athletic" thighs lol
    However this season I told myself its time to break out my of comfort shell....I purchased two jean shorts but in light coloured and several bright fitted Ts! So far I'm liking it and although it did feel a bit strange but I'm slowly getting used to throw on things I wear at a brain-dead moment lol

  22. I love the match-matchy feel of the first outfit with the bright scarf and bag and I also love the subtleness
    of the second outfit. I cannot chose between those AMQueen scarves - they are so beautiful and I like to see that you're getting your money's worth by wearing them :)

    1. Yep, I want to wear them a lot, probably a little because I want to get my money's worth, haha! But mostly because they are pretty awesome :)
