Blue skies smiling at me

My life is a song, I always have a song dancing around in my mind. When I see a blue sky, I start singing, even if only in my head and no one can hear. I can hear the voice of Rod Stewart loud and clear, with a full orchestra.

Sky blue is one of my favourite colours, especially paired with white.

This blouse is one of the tops I brought back from Germany last summer, bought in Berlin. It’s 100% cotton but feels soft as silk. Serenity blue.

Enjoying a little “detour” (AKA shopping) while on a country drive in the quaint town of St. Jacobs is delightful.

Bon Weekend sky blue and white

So many beautiful things to choose from at the Weathered Gate, I decided on a pretty white top made in Italy which I’ll show you next week.

    My dear Carmen, excuse the delay in my comment is … simply a logistical problem. This blue blouse is wonderful, and the jacket is cute. I love, you already know, the blue-white combination. The borated blouse is beautiful and looks so soft … I love your photo in front of the shop window, why I can appreciate the beauty of your hair. A soft, delicate and beautiful look in which, as always, the most beautiful is yourself.

    Love the blue top and its embroidery, looks very light and perfect for summer. Love the white with this steel blue, and am a fan of finding small town’s treasures.
    Have a wonderful week!

      Thanks so much Jess! I love browsing through the little shops and the small town atmosphere, feels a bit like shopping in Mayberry (Andy Griffith Show).

      Enjoy the summertime!

    There is often (probably almost always) a song in my head… you know music much better than I do.

      Well, Bob, it all started when I was growing up, my mom had an extensive record collection (LPs – remember those?) and music filled our house, everything from the Big Band years, like Glenn Miller and Ray Conniff. The voices of Connie Francis, Doris Day, Marty Robbins and Jimmie Rodgers echoed through. Teaching dance every day and hearing songs all the time, evokes pleasant memories! Music is a gift from God!

      Dance to the music!

    I adore your photos…..your euphemism “a little detour also known as shopping” amuses me.
