Pinstripes always remind me of men’s suits ever since I was a little girl.

My brother chose a pinstriped fabric when he asked me to make a suit for him.

When I saw this gray pinstriped skirt in a thrift shop, I loved how the asymmetrical design and pink wild roses applique added a feminine flair to it.


I paired it with a white lace blouse and added a lacy scarf with fancy fringes to make this outfit even more feminine.

I have several pink tops that I can wear with this skirt. I love pink wild roses …. spells ROMANCE!

    Certainly no masculine look about your pinstripes.

    The wild pink roses growing at home always appealed to me. Occasionally, I would pick a few for Mom. They were very delicate and died soon. Sometimes the petals would be falling off before I got home. They were best left on the bush for all to enjoy.

    I am enjoying these summery thoughts on a cool (cold) blustery winter .

    I love your skirt! It reminds me my white one which has a big pink rose printed on it… yours is lovely too!!
    The white shirt goes perfect and the pinstripes jacket , surprisingly … makes the outfit even more feminine! Light gray, which is one of my favourite colours in winter, is always very elegant
    You really look gorgeous Carmen …
