Magenta and Capris

 May is one of my favourite months because lilacs, magnolias and apple blossoms are in their glory. There are lilacs in various colours: white, ivory, pink, mauve, pale violet and magenta.

With lilacs blooming everywhere, they make a lovely backdrop for this magenta blouse which has a delicate damask design in the weave.

This multi-coloured fabric purse by designer Laurel Burch is a cute summer purse. Check out her amazing designs. I love her whimsical cats. (Sadly, she passed away in 2007.)

Laurel Birch purse Sterling silver necklace–the links are hearts–was bought in a little boutique in Stratford last summer.

T’is the season for capris; I love the lace inserts on the hem.


Lovely day for a stroll along the avenue.

I bought this silky soft blouse at Ricki’s (ladies fashion) a few months ago.


It’s a high low style so I have worn it with black leggings and booties.

Enjoy the blossoms of the merry month of May!


Life is good!

    You are really a vision amidst the pretty lilacs Carmen. You really remind me of Donna Mills of Knotts Landing – I love her so much and her sense of style is impeccable!

      Thank you so much Jess! Dancing does help and I love it; this place is across the street from one of the centres where I teach dance. A future post will show magenta lilacs.

    So beautiful in here again! Your blog is so feminine and refreshing. I just learned from a shop owner in town that Laurel Burch’s daughters took over her business and that’s why we’re seeing her designs out there again. I love her patterns and colors!
