#OOTD: Pink, Pearls & Perkins!

Between my recent vintage shopping and new pieces I’ve picked up here and there over the past few months, there are a ton of NEW (+ new-to me) accessories that I haven’t integrated into an outfit from my closet as yet.   So, I was determined to adorn myself with newness in my office outfit(s) this week.

I’ve been waiting patiently for Spring to officially get here already to wear these pieces I picked up from Your Big Sister’s Closet

On Monday I finally  unveiled them to the office, along with my new Dorothy Perkins pencil skirt with my mint-toed nude pumps and lacy shoulder pink 3/4 top.  I have this top in mint seen here, but I recently re-discovered that I had it also in pink (hidden in the deepest corners of a drawer).  Hooray for buying things you in multiples once they’ve stolen your heart completely!  🙂

I also wore these behind-the-ear cuffs I picked up from the Steampunk Fair a few weeks ago.  Thought it might be too edgy of the office, but I wrote them anyways anticipating less than positive reactions from colleagues.  Between the necklace and the skirt, this unique piece of jewellery got oh-so-many compliments!  Thrilled that the ones I picked up – the clock-arms –  there weren’t too many for sale that looked quite like them. 🙂

Ooooo….it’s -1 in Toronto today! Not quite patio-season, but pretty close 🙂

Sadly the streets and sidewalks are covered in ice and slush, which means winter boots are in full effect – cute shoes need not apply. Sigh…

mint stone neclaceI’m headed into the office for a workshop, one that I’m attending not delivering. And am hoping to meet up for an after work drink with a handsome new boy…so here’s the outfit I’ve put together for a Monday-at-the-office-straight-to-drinks look:

My fave bit about my outfit today is the fab necklace!!! Found this cute lil’ boutique on St. Clair West last year (when I lived midtown) and totally fell in love with this piece. The shop girl informed me that they only purchased a few pieces from an exclusive supplier in NYC. There were matching earings, however the stones were off colour and I wasn’t feeling them.

Just downloaded a camera timer app to my phone…so these pics are a combination of mirror selfies + self-timer.  Enjoy!
