love bloggingOne of the things I love about blogging is connecting with people. Similar interests draw us together: fashion, photography, scenery, travel, hobbies and much more.

Project Sister Act

When Sheela contacted me about her Project Sister Act I was delighted! Theme: styling a SWT (simple white tee). Style is ageless as you can see here beginning with Sheela’s daughter …


Tennis anyone? Here’s Eve ready for a game of tennis in her SWT paired with a black mini skirt. I love the tennis theme: very playful, sassy pose. Cute red shoes are the perfect pop of colour for this black and white outfit, and a nice touch of humour with the message on her tee. (The World According To Eve)



Jalisa looks simply stunning! – simple white tee with simple blue jeans, but it’s Jalisa that really makes it a knock-out look: pretty updo, sweet smile and sexy leopard heels! (The Style Contour)



Alice looks so cool in her Free People vest worn over her SWT. A touch of boho and a free spirit, carefree outfit. Love her sandals and minimalistic look. (Alice Typenu)



Sheela chose a vibrant blue polka dot maxi skirt to wear with her SWT and WOW, nothing simple here, she looks dazzling and could go to a party in this outfit! I love how she’s tied it in a knot at the waist for a fitted look. Her cute shoes peeking out means she’s definitely ready for something special. (Sheela Writes)



I never knew a white T-shirt could look this fashionable! I love how Debbie’s SWT is brilliant white and that she’s paired it with stylish green joggers. Her green and blue plaid shirt is not only practical if it gets cool and she needs to wear it, but I love it tied around her hips to add colour and style. Of course, it helps to have gorgeous tresses like Debbie’s to achieve this beautiful look! (Fashion Fairy Dust)



I bought my “new” T-shirt at a thrift shop (it had never been worn) specially for this occasion: Sister Act Project SWT.


I love the graphic design: a simple houndstooth ribbon and buttons; I only paid $6.

Version 3I paired it with these black and white gingham capris. My dear friend Ileana was with me when I bought them and she suggested I sew on a black and a white button. Great idea because I love little details like that. I knew my button collection would be useful someday. I have a million buttons I’ve collected over the years.


First time wearing this outfit at the museum, where this old locomotive makes an interesting backdrop. It was a rainy day, so I brought my matching black and white houndstooth umbrella.

T-shirt: thrifted
Capris: Ricki’s
Sandals: Hudson’s Bay
Umbrella: Sears

Thank you so much Sheela for organizing this fun fashion project and including me with these stylish ladies! Now I have a cute new outfit, thanks to you!

    SWT – awesome! The idea of this post is excellent! All pictures show lovely ladies with great taste of colors, shapes and details that make fashion enjoyable and ageless! ☺️
    I’m so very happy you didn’t forget my suggestion and…yes, your Capris look great having now those buttons.
    Did you find any paisley scarf in the meantime? I did…in one of my drawers… ☺️ It is a present made by my son’s girlfriend from München when she came to Canada to spend Christmas with us in 2004. Shamefully, I forgot about this beautiful scarf.
    I still would like to have a new one and buy it with you, my dear Carmen. It’s a promise…Eine Frau ein Wort…right? ☺️
    ❤️ Ileana

    My dear Carmen, you’ll look wonderful! The shirt is cute and capri are … one of the nicest I’ve seen you! This beautiful delicate print, detail of the buttons … everything is beautiful. A nice look and a woman, sorry for the other women in the blog, can not be compared, is quite simply the most beautiful!

    You look absolutely picture perfect, Carmen, and I’m so in love with the little buttons on your capris. Have you seriously amassed such a huge collection of buttons?? I also want to thank you, very much, for agreeing to be a part of Project Sister Act for August. It was such a pleasure having you. You’re such a gracious, charming soul xoxoxo

  7. Great idea 🙂 . Personally I love white colour ( even though, thinking about it I hardly ever show it on my blog 😦 – I must change it at once !!! hahaha ) and white T-shirts are just sooo cool. You can wear them with everything and anything. Your styling with these fantastic houdstooth trousers and other items including the bow is simply perfect. Have a great week – Margot 🙂
