Mother’s Day in silver and white

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 blogging.

      Thank you Bob! The photo was taken on Duke Street behind the Centre. The whole garden is magnificent. Just love all the magnolia trees, but the blossoms are falling like large flakes of pink snow!

      Have a great week!

      ❤ carmen

      Thank you Ute! We sure do have a lot of the same clothes. However, Jean only agreed to take photos wearing the same outfit as a favour to me, we would never go out in “public” dressed alike. Well, my blog is sorta public but in real life this would never happen! 😉

      Happy Mother’s Day!!

      ❤ carmen
