Lace Pencil Skirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo | Grey Tee, Printed Skirt, Rebecca Minkoff MAM Bag

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:

Necklace: Chanel necklace
Top: Jeanswest round neck lace detail top
SkirtLiving Doll Wednesday black lace skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs two tone flats in blush and black
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes pink clic clac
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Hillier Hobo in blush pink with silver hardware


A little bit cloudy and rainy, but still really warm and humid. This top is another one I haven't worn in a while. It's an oldie that used to be in high rotation before the blog, but I started wearing it less often. Took me a while to find it in my blog archives too. I really like the lace detail on the neckline, I need to wear it more often.

Not having much luck with reducing the size of my wardrobe lately - every old item I find and give one last wear to make a stay or go decision I seem to be keeping! At least I'm managing to slow my purchasing.

Linking up with Friday's Fancies, What I Wore to Work, Casual Friday linkup, Friday's Fab Favourites today.


Last worn: round neck top, lace pencil skirt, two tone flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo.

Another denim-free casual Friday outfit, in my quest to wear more of my wardrobe! This skirt has only been worn twice on the blog, I really should wear it more often as it's beautiful. Today was my last day at work for a while, I'm now officially on Christmas holidays. I'm looking forward to spending my days relaxing, swimming and catching up on my reading in the hammock. If the rain clears ;)

  1. Nice to see your cute mouse flats out today. I like your blush pink bag too. Interesting about the DD cream. I might try it before they come out with an EE one! Have a great weekend Mica. sparkle2day.com

    1. Unfortunately, this skirt is about 3 or 4 years old I think. The brand now no longer exists :(

    1. hehe, yes I'm trying very hard to have a slow and steady pace, as having a big clear out session definitely doesn't work for me. Having a designated "donate" bag helps, as when I come across something I just don't like for whatever reason, it can go there rather than back in my wardrobe.

  9. I always love anything lace you wear! :) One of the problems I share with you is having issue of getting rid of old clothing items in my wardrobe. Recently I decided to just do it. I gave some of them to my little cousins (had to ship them parcels all the way to Cananda), and that's with the good quality clothings. I donated some of the really old ones AND managed to sell a pair of booties that I no longer wear (instead of donating I got a WHOLE $7 for them HAHA).

    1. Glad you are making such good progress! I donated another 2 bags of clothes yesterday, but could definitely still do more. I think working through what I own, wearing and reassessing things, is the best way for me to go. Slow and steady! :)
