Peplum and Lace

Besides lace being romantic and elegant, it has a nostalgic quality. I bought these tops at Ricki’s in two colours (if you know me, you know I often have two of a kind).

    Splendid! Both tops are gorgeous and I love your idea of matching their colours with the glorious colours of the blossoms. Superb colours, elegant lady, perfect pictures!

    I love lace and I love it on you, Carmen! You have bought two delightful tops and I am not sure about which one is my favourite…the magenta colour is a bit unusual and really, really wonderful!!

      Thank you very much Dan! The magenta is quite unique, very bold and that makes it a different look than the pink which is very pale dusty rose.

      Happy day dear friend!

    How nice post, dear Carmen. I’m used to seeing you dressed in garments in soft pink tones, but is not so common to see this magenta tone so precious. Both tops are beautiful, I love the fabric and delicate design, finish with peplum and pretty filigree lace. Both are perfect with your white pants, something consubstantial with Carmen. I like the delicate multicolored clutch, and I like the atmosphere of the photos, surrounded by flowers, though no beauty overcomes you to you, the most beautiful flower. I like both necklaces, but especially so delicate that wearing the pink look. And I love your photo with hat, protecting your delicate skin from the sun. A great post with beautiful looks, luscious landscape and figure shining in all its appeal.

      Thank you so much dear Josep-Maria! The necklace I am wearing with the magenta top is from Finland about 20 years old. The colours match better than in the photo.

      The scent of the flowers is not possible to capture in a photo, it is simply heavenly to be surrounded by this sweet fragrance! 🌹

      Happy day! 🙂

      ❤ carmen

    Beautiful tops Carmen. I like the first one as it took me ages to spot you as you are so well camouflaged by the tree my friend 😀 ❤

      Thank you Ralph! If I had been wearing green jeans, you would not have been able to find me in the first photo. The one where I am standing by the white picket fence is perfect camouflage. Those flowers in the tree matched my magenta top and my white jeans matched the fence. Did you find me in photo # 6 ???

      Perhaps I’ll look for more backdrops that match my outfits so you won’t notice me. 🙂

        LOL. Now that is magic. I couldn’t spot you in number six or the last photo dear Carmen. Quite a disappearing act. You are so good that I will buy a ticket to see you (or not see you 😉 ) on stage in Vegas my friend. 😀 ❤

    I like both colors.

      Thank you so much Ute! The flowers are so inspiring, and wherever I see them I think what a lovely backdrop this would make. The fragrance is delightful, but sadly the blossoms don’t last long.
