april showers, bring may flowers

Tights: American Apparel
Skirt: Thrifted
Belt: H & M
Shirt: Thrifted, Chez thrift, bolton
Jacket: Mom's
Bracelets: Hattitude, Tofino
Headscarf: Thrifted

How this outfit came to be Hattified: Truth is I was rushing out to meet up with some friends at a restaurant for a welcome home night for another friend in from Alberta...I needed a quick outfit. I started with the shirt and the hair scarf (didn't have time to spruce up my hair). I thought the skirt matched, and threw in some mustard tights to amp it up, since I love mustard and royal blue together. 

Why this outfit works: The mustard tights and the mustard belt match. The blue in the top and the royal blue skirt match. The brown shoes bring it down and casualify it. (yes I just made that word up

Another version: Wear it with an off white/cream coloured top. 

Today is a day of jewellery organizing. I feel like my mind has been cufuddled (...i think i just made up another word, 2 for 2) with all the messiness in my studio. I'm switching desks, so that will be a nice chance to organize all my jewellery and get the creative juices flowing again. Any tips on staying inspired when you work from home?


  1. The colours in this outfit are so wonderful. I love the colourful and fun top with this skirt. And the denim top is perfect

  2. You work from home, lucky duck! I'd kill to do stuff in my pjs haha. I see you really do like mustard haha. I love that color and blue together too, it's such a fun mix. I like the loudness of this whole look, especially the hair twistie thingie :)

  3. Playing music always works for me:)

    Can I just say Hattie that I am in full out swoon mode over this whole outfit! You so perfectly put together all your ensembles. The colors and the accessories and all are utterly adorable...and quite cheery (which is something I could use with all the grey weather my town has been having).

    Cufuddled is surely a word that will make it's way into my vocabulary...hehe. Take care lovely lady! <3 Marisa

  4. ooh I love this ensemble. That shade of blue is just so perfect!
    I work from home too so I can relate. I just take a breather from everything for a while or stalk blogs and lookbook to gain fresh perspective. :)
