Cropped blazer + Chiffon + Satin leggings


Today I have another outfit which can go from day into evening. This always gets me compliments for the delicate colours. Let’s start:

– The base item here, the satin leggings, are not actually secondhand because I have never seen these at any of  my usual preloved sources. Once you have found these stretchy, Storm leggings, you will never look back. They fit perfectly enough to be worn as slinky trousers as well as leggings. They have topstitched panels that melt around the leg shape. The ones in the picture area beautiful bronze colour and I own black ones too. The colour goes beautifully with the other two items.

– The salmon coloured top is a mix of cotton jersey and a swathe of chiffon draped down the front and back. The front is decorated with giant rhinestones.

– Over the top, a pink, cropped, non-closing jacket  allows this to be worn to work. Take off the jacket for the evening. I roll back the sleeves to reveal the striped lining and so I can wear my beautiful silver cuff. I also accessorize with a big silver ring and crystal earrings to match the rhinestones.

– If I am going out after work or just feel like a little more elegance, I wear the snakeskin heels I bought on Trademe for $20. The boots, which I bought many years ago in an Italian market, are for chillier days. They look a little beaten up but that is part of the appeal. They are a little brighter in the photo than what they are. Their colour is actually a great match for the leggings.

And there you have another great outfit to wear to work and out afterwards.
