La Vie en Rose

It’s beginning to look a lot like spring! Snow has melted, April showers have arrived and robins are serenading!

I love pairing pink and gray, a match made in heaven.

I bought this high low top at Reitmans. It has pale pink roses and short raglan sleeves with a lacy print. The back is all gray.

I first saw this top while spring shopping earlier this year at Smart Set, a Canadian ladies apparel store that closed (107 stores across Canada). They didn’t have my size but told me that Reitmans is owned by the same company and they had my size.

Not sure where I got these pink shoes, I’ve had them since the ’80s.


Roses are pink,
The grass is green,
Spring is here,
Time to clean.

    You purchased the jeans in Germany and could pair them perfectly with the top purchased in…Canada. Ladies and gentlemen, this is how it works when you pay attention to detail and are a real fashionista like our dear Carmen! ❤️
    Spring is here, FINALLY! Love it!!!
    Let’s remember that April is Daffodil Month coordinated by Canadian Cancer Society. The daffodil is a symbol of strength and courage in the fight against cancer. All of us should be part of this fight and noble cause by making donations or buying daffodil pins.
    Hope your knee is recovering and you are feel much better now, my dear friend Carmen.
    ❤️ Ileana

    Love the rosy jeans, lovely to see you with sunglasses. The sun is stronger now, I haven’t ventured into short sleeves yet though! 🙂

      Thank you dear Ute! I bought the rosy jeans in Munich and I’m glad I found a short sleeve top that matches so well. We’ve had some warm days but it’s only April and I still need a hoodie or jacket.
