As the old adage says, Time flies when you’re having fun! — I guess that means blogging is a lot of fun because it’s been six years (November 2011) since I began this adventure and it feels like yesterday. Thanks to my daughter Jean who started her fashion and lifestyle blog earlier in 2011 and […]
BOTH LADIES SET OUR HEARTS A-DANCING! BEAUTIFUL BLUE AND SKIRT WORN TOO!
Jean and I often like the same things, so it’s no surprise that when we found these turquoise tops(fair trade) in a little shop in Berlin, Germany we both bought one. With ruching on one side seam and asymmetrical woven details on one shoulder makes this tank top so unique!
Jean’s matches her new flirty skirt she bought at an art market in Berlin. There were a myriad of various prints and hard to make a choice, all were beautiful.
Wish I bought one of these skirts, good thing I can order online.
I’ve had thisboho skirtfor years. It’s hard enough to match colours, but turquoise has so many shades that I have never found a top to match apart from the tie-died top that came with it.
Lo and behold, this top has the same shade of turquoise!
Makes me feel like dancing!

LOVE HER TOPS—DON’T YOU?
When Jean and I went shopping in Berlin, Germany last summer, we bought some lovely clothes. I bought three tops at Dear Goods (fair-trade) boutique. Now she has opened her own eco boutique in Seattle.
I have yet to post them on my blog, so here is the first one. This white shirt is a fine jersey knit cotton with a little pocket on the front.
I dressed it down with these blue printed cropped jeans (rolled up cuffs for a casual look) but it looks beautiful dressed up with a skirt.
Crops and capris can shorten the legs (who wants short legs?) but nude shoes elongate. The sandals, which are “accidentally vegan” bought at H&M, have little wedge heels and are so comfortable.Love the eyelet across the shoulder at the back.Shirt: Dear Goods
Jeans: Smart Set
Non-leather sandals: H & M

A MARVELOUS-LOOKING MAMA!!!!
Yesterday I bought this lacy, crocheted top at Anna Bella. Of course, I tried it on and loved it so much I wore it right away. (My new white skinnie jeans are in the Le Chateau bag; finally found a pair I like.) When I saw this top, I immediately thought of my mom; she crocheted and would have loved this top! White crop pants are from Spanner.
I am a huge fan of white and this top has silver which adds a sparkle.
A quick stop for a photo shoot by a gorgeous magnolia tree before the blossoms fall. Pink was my mom’s favourite colour.
My heart necklace is perfect for this top.
Silver earrings from Target and silver sandals from Aldo.
Some happy memories with my fashionable daughter Jean who not only has influenced my style as much as my mother has, but also got me hooked on…

LOVE HER NEAR THE LILAC BUSH,
THE LLILAC BUSH,
tHE LILAC BUSH—
lOVE HER NEXT TO THE LILAC BUSH…
SHE LOOKS THE BEST IN TOWN! –J.E.C.
My brand new first-pair-ever white skinny jeans will be a staple in my wardrobe. I don’t know how I got along without them. I guess it’s because I do have quite a few white pants and capris, but nothing looks as good with a long top as skinny jeans or leggings.
These stretchy jeans are from LE CHATEAU (Canadian clothing store) fake fly and fake pockets make for a smooth look.
My pale pink (knit-that-looks-crocheted) top from ANNA BELLA reminds me of my crocheting days. My mom taught me how to crochet and it was a creative hobby. She crocheted beautiful dresses and one-of-a-kind tops, and cute baby outfits for my children.
This lacy crocheted top is a lovely shade of mauve, it is shorter and I would not wear leggings with it, so these jeans are perfect. I bought it a few years ago at GARAGE.

These pants are great!
Pajamas pants are not just for sleeping at night or lounging at home in the daytime. The new trend since the new millennium is to wear them in public.
It’s so comfortable wearing loose, lightweight pajama pants because it feels like I’m not wearing anything. In hot weather these pants are cooler than shorts or capri pants.
While shopping at Le Chateau (Canadian clothing store) looking for a red dress for the Rumba performance dance I am learning, I got sidetracked and found these pajama-style pants.
Black and white always gets my attention and this fabulous print had me sold.
I wore a black top for a dramatic look: silver jewellery and silver stilettos.
And a white top for a summery look.
From shopping to the playground with my grandson, these are perfect.
Great pants for pole dancing.

He’s not only a great photographer, but he…
