In the Mood for Mauve

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 ย 10 years, comfortable and perfect for a stroll in the park.

Rockway Gardens

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!ย

    Lavender is also one of your colors, it is one of those colors that I identify with you. You, for me, smell like lavender. You, for me, always appear as the most delicate thing, like a delicate and beautiful lavender flower. I remember perfectly your jeans with lavender prints. The combination you have prepared with your shoes and your shirt is beautiful.

      *BIG smile* I am wearing natural lavender fragrance that I bought at the Lavender Boutique in Niagara-on-the-Lake. It’s amazing that you can smell it all the way to Catalonia!! ๐Ÿ™‚ We will be going to Niagara-on-the-Lake again soon. Thank you so much for the lovely compliment! ๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ’œ



  3. Hi Carmen. its funny how certain colours from our younger days stay with us into adulthood. You look great in the mauve tunic , I like the layered look . The jeans are a perfect match in the floral print ! the flats go great with it too , also showing a cute floral design. The purse is a lovely finishing touch. The park is a great treasure for you to have so close to you! From the photos it is just such a great place to utilise for backdrops to any photo . Thanks for sharing, Terri xo.
