Casual Utility Jacket and Pink Roses

We’ve had enough rain; April showers bring May flowers.

It’s delightful to see all the blossoms and flowers blooming, just like the old adage. I’ll be showing fashionable flowers every week for the month of May.

One of my favourite shades of pink. I paired this dusty pink utility jacket with pink roses. Pink roses were my mother’s favourite flowers.

This light-weight spring jacket has lots of pockets and a drawstring waist. It’s from the Gap found in a thrift shop for $5 and matches several of my floral jeans. Looks great with blue jeans and my white jeans too.

I don’t care if they go out of style because in my book, flowers never go out of style. The only problem is, I may not be able to buy them anymore when mine wear out. Good thing there are thrift shops!

Magnolias make the perfect backdrop for my floral theme this month.

Pink roses remind me of my dear mother.
What is/was your mother’s favourite flower?

Happy Mother’s Day!

    It is always wonderful to see your post under these pink trees, which I relate so much to you. They are the trees … of Carmen! And it is even more wonderful to see underneath them your delicate looks, with those beautiful floral prints on the pants, the beautiful jackets and the nice t-shirts with the nice embellishments on the neckline. Although all the colors are perfect in you, some are especially linked to you, the pink, of course, is one of them. As you can imagine, I love this outfit and these photos. The pants are fantastic and you look beautiful in all the photos. The roses are your mother’s, the gardens are … yours!

      Thank you very much Josep-Maria! My top has a very pretty neckline which is hard to see, but you have a keen eye for details. I should have taken the jacket off for one photo. The magnolias are disappearing but the lilacs are now blossoming in many lovely colours and the fragrance is so sweet!

    What a fabulous outfit, Carmen!! Those jeans remind me of some I had back in college!! They were my faves—of course even if I still had them now, they wouldn’t fit!!
