WHOLE WHEAT WAFFLES, ANYONE?

Let’s have waffles for dinner,

with syrup that idea’s a winner…

Margarine please,

boiled sap from trees,

Whole wheat–a healthier dinner???

Denim jacket and white jeans

Shopping at Homesense the other day, I couldn’t help noticing that I matched the furniture display, so I asked a shopper to take my photo. Thank you Paul!

I’m not the only one who likes wearing a denim jacket with white jeans.

My daughter Jean inspired me three years ago with her outfit and since then I’ve seen other fashionable women (both on blogs and in real life).

I got my purse at Jean’s Clothing Exchange (I got first dibs because it belonged to her). This one is handmade, and I love supporting artisans and crafters.

She bought it a a flea market in Harlem on our summer vacation in 2013.

Denim jackets match everything and I love how the rough and refined look adds interest to an outfit. My jacket is thrifted ($7.99).

Lovely hand-stitched detail on the front and back with a cute peek-a-boo.back

A curious little dog came to investigate this photoshoot, guess she wanted to be in my fashion blog. She reminds me of Pierre, my white poodle that I had when I was 10 years old.

Version 2

Jean’s boutique is so beautiful, all clothes are organic, cruelty-free and nothing is bought from companies that abuse the workers or animals.

I’m borrowing Neil Diamond’s song for this post.

We’re all subject to the blues now and then, and I’ve got them today in my outfit.

This gigantic saftety pin buckle was a purchase in the ’60s and I attached it to a denim blue belt. I decided to wear it with a long cotton top worn over rolled up faded blue jeans and then added this sheer fringe vest.

What’s your favourite blues song?

DETAILS WOMEN MIGHT NEED…

Details a woman might need

To see what  pokes through indeed…

Some like things smooth

Giving others no clues,

About what is underneath.

See how her collar lies,

And necklace how it fits–for size…

Light blue and white

A wholesome sight,

These details can a model advise!

The rest of this blouse-under-sweater,

Is charming on her as ever…

But certain details

A man’s mind fails,

To see the true point of this endeavor!
