Rainy days and Mondays

The weather is dreary and drizzly today. The sky is as gray as my coat and trousers, so I’m brightening things up with my I Love Lucy umbrella and red rubber duck boots.

I bought this 3/4 length coat (with asymmetrical design, three big silver buttons down the front and matching buttons on the cuff) at RW & Co. The trousers were bought there too, but I want to alter them and make them skinny jeans, like Jean did with her orange boot cut pants. Clever idea and I think they’ll look better.

The coat has a subtle plaid pattern and flares out below the bust-line. I bought the lacy gray scarf in Niagara-on-theLake. The black and gray striped hand-warmers were bought in Seattle.

I love my Lucy umbrella!

I’m linking up with Visible Monday for the first time. Please check out other fashionistas at Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style. I enjoy reading her blog and I like her philosophy.

Have a wonderful week!!

  1. So lovely to meet you, Carmen! You look adorable in your lake-gray palette, perked up by the red ducks and cute umbrella.
    You’re clearly not anywhere near 50 years old, so over 50-what are you? Perhaps over 50 pounds, but not by much. Surely not 50 years ….!?

      Thank you Jan!

      I’m 61, feel 21 and act like a kid with my two grandchildren! They call me ‘Mimi’ which I love because it sounds youthful (my grandson called me that when he was able to utter his first words) and not so ancient like ‘grandma’.

      I just took a quick peek at your blog 🙂 and will take more time to read it when I get home tonight.

      Thanks for commenting and I’ll be seeing you!!

      ❤ carmen

      Pura vida, mi amigo!!

      Hello Dan! It’s a pleasure to meet you! I saw your lovely jacket on Josep-Maria’s blog and commented. The floral pattern is beautiful and I love shades of gray.

      Thank you for stopping by.
      ❤ carmen

    In Catalonia it does not rain for many days that do not, and we need it, we still have summer heat. Your umbrella is fun, and your look, in gray, I really like. The coat is gorgeous, I like the pattern and color. No more pirates of the Queen? Just kidding. I like to see so, and the shoes are gorgeous. The next day show me the sweater with these sleeves so pretty. A hug, Queen of the Pirates!


  6. Your Lucy umbrella is fabulous, Carmen! Wonderful coat too. You look lovely and thanks for linking up with Visible Monday.

You are amazing, kind and beautiful! I hope to meet you someday. In the meantime, I’ll be visiting your blog and participating on Visible Mondays. It’s good that you are doing it every second week, with so many participants!

  7. More power to you for going out in the rain for a photo shoot! You look wonderful as usual, and I love the umbrella! Celeste 🙂
