Nostalgia has a big influence on why I’m drawn to certain clothes. My bedroom was mauve when I was a teenager. I had a bedspread with mauve roses. Mauve, lavender, lilac, violet–these pale shades of purple bring back happy memories of my younger years. That’s why I fell in love with this tunic.
It’s a high-low style with a chiffon yolk and hem to give it a layered look. I paired it with my mauve and dusty rose floral jeans. I’ve had these mauve flats for over 10 years, comfortable and perfect for a stroll in the park.
Rockway Gardens is an amazing park in the heart of our city, managed by the Kitchener Horticultural Society. There are so many picture-perfect backdrops for photoshoots. People take photos for various occasions: everything from weddings to photos with their dogs.
I’ve lived in Kitchener since 1979 and I’ve been blogging for almost seven years, yet this is the first time we’ve gone there for a photoshoot! I had to wait my turn at the pedestrian bridge while someone had a professional photographer take pictures of their dog.
There’s so much more to see, so we’ll go back again soon to enjoy the ambience of this beautiful park!
Colours affect our mood and mauve is one of those tranquil shades that makes me feel happy.
Wishing you a happy day!
