    It is a treat to see you and Jean on the same post….I read the rest of the post one her blog (and commented there)….I conclude that “style challenge” is a tie. 😉

    I dont own much plaid, and dont know why. I love the way both of you styled it, her with long legs and the flares is a great sillouette, and I love Carmen how you wore your jeans tucked into the boots, and are showing the blouse this way. Pretty!!! Happy Sunday too, finally we have some sun

    stop by soon, jess xx

    You both styled it up cute. I haven’t shopped around Fremont in a while but I do love their Sunday Market. So much to look at.
