Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Although my favourite summer colour is white, I love to add pops of colour, like turquoise. My dear friend Josep-Maria featured me on SENSE CORBATA/NO TIE – a fashion blog with mature stylish women from around the world.

Turquoise purse and sandals (both are vegan leather). Turquoise necklace and bracelet.

Bright floral and funky purses make fun accessories for my white summer outfits.


Going to a local farm to by fresh flowers, strawberries and asparagus with friends makes for a lovely afternoon. Our friends joined us for a refreshments on our back porch.

    Carmen, I just came back from our trip to the Outerbanks. I need to stop by more often. I love this look, wow you look beautiful. I love all white too and those purses look so fun, and just the right amount of color with the white. Your flowers from the farm look lovely, and I enjoy the farmers market too. Always lovely!

    Thank you for highlighting my Blog in your post, Carmen, you’re very kind. I’ve said many times … white is you. Way you dress white, is incomparable. In some of the comments in the post about you on my blog what women say. And you’re only playing with colors added to the target. I am a fan of the completely white look, but I admire your special sense of harmony by combining. The little purses, I already know, are real cuties. A beautiful flowers, beautiful colors, but none as beautiful as you!
