My Outfit

Pink straw hat: New Dundee vendor
Pink sunglasses: Bartell Drug Store, University Village, Seattle
Pink Panther earrings: gifted
Pink scarf: Lizzy R, St. Jacobs
Pink jacket: Made in Italy, boutique in Snohomish, Washington
Magenta blouse: Ricki’s
Magenta leggings: Plume and Thread, made in USA
Gladiator sandals: gift from my dear friend Roxanne

These leggings are new from Rhumba boutique in St. Jacobs: made in USA, bamboo and cotton blend, needless to say–SUPER soft and comfy! Plume and Thread is “a socially conscious brand that treasures human relationships, just like you do. Our hardworking hands create each detail in Philadelphia, PA.”

Pink Panther Earrings

We started the day off having a delicious breakfast–tofu scramble made by Chef Douglas. Luanne and I had a pleasant discussion about fashion and women over 50. Can a woman over 50 wear Pink Panther earrings? What about a woman who’s almost 70 (in three years)? Well, you already know my opinion because I’m wearing them. Luanne (50) has gingerbread man earrings. Fashion is fun!

Our Day Trip

New Dundee is a sleepy little town, the kind you’d miss if you blink your eyes passing through. With only a little over a thousand residents, it sure draws a crowd every year for the town’s annual community garage sale. The park if full of vendors selling new things and I was so happy to find the perfect straw hat for my blush pink jacket.

I bought the scarf in St. Jacobs recently and I love the silver butterflies on it. I’m so pleased it all matches.

Straw Hats

Luanne and I both bought straw hats: I chose pink for my outfit which will go with several of my summer clothes and she chose blue for hers. The blue hat is perfect for jeans and her sporty look.

Fashion is fun and even more fun with friends!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a fantastic Friday!

    How beautiful these pants, I love that fabric and that pattern. And I really like your look with the hat, it’s very original and beautiful. The whole outfit has some beautiful contrasts and tones, with pink as the common denominator, that rose that you love so much. You look great in the photos, pink and spring feel great to you!
