Good morning all! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Here in Vancouver, we were blessed with sunshine and warm temperatures. I was actually taken a bit by surprise, as I have not yet switched out my winter wardrobe with my other season wardrobe. What that means is the down filled jackets and winter boots get put away, and the sandals, capris, and sundresses come out to play. We lunched al fresco twice, soaking up the sunshine and everyone’s happy demeanor as we sat at sidewalk cafes. As hoped, the spring weather has brought with it a renewed optimism. A big thank you to all that commented on last week’s post. Reading about both your own living spaces, and your hobbies was very insightful to me. My mind has since been actively sorting out ways to create a functional work space within a visually attractive dining room. Having said that, if all my weekends could be like this one, I might never pick up a sewing needle or paintbrush again. I’ve spent the better part of the last three days outside with nary a thought to indoor pursuits.
I slipped into dark wash jeans and my classic blue gingham shirt on Good Friday. The weather was nice; not quite up to the warmth of Saturday and Sunday, but still bliss. We spent a good part of the afternoon walking, and I wanted to be comfortable. I think I squeaked in with style, although I’m certainly not setting any trends here. Sometimes simple is best. Gold flats and handbag add a little shine. And, I usually like to stack on some bracelets, and a necklace or three. I’ve called upon my lime yellow jacket to add a pop of colour. When I was wearing this jacket, I felt comfortable enough, but in looking at these photos, I feel I want to shorten the sleeves. Honestly, sleeve length is almost always an issue for me. It’s very common for sleeves to come down to my finger tips!
Thank you so much for your positive comments on my most recent DIY. If you missed it, and want to check it out, you’ll find it here.
