NORTHERN REFLECTIONS in Red and Blue

Salesladies make the best models, as I mentioned in my previous post. This is another pullover that one of the salesladies was wearing when I was shopping at Northern Reflections (Canadian Women’s Apparel Store) proving once again that real woman make better models than mannequins or clothes on a hanger.

This pullover has a peplum back and fun patchwork with plaid print and jacquard floral design in red and blue, perfect to pair with blue jeans. It’s a lighweight jerseyknit and a great transitional top for spring.

A carpet of dainty blue flowers makes such a pretty backdrop in the spring and this year they are out early.

Do you know the name of these little flowers?

My blue beret is made in England, a recent addition to my Basque-style beret collection. I have 13 berets, all–except one–are thrifted. That’s not counting my knitted berets and a velvet beret and two faux fur trimmed berets.

I’ve always liked the look and thought berets are great for anyone, sort of neutral like jeans. Berets can be worn with casual clothes and they also look elegant with dressy outfits.

A Day Trip To Kincardine

Just the right outfit for a stroll along the beach of Lake Huron on a pleasant Saturday afternoon in Springtime.

    Beautiful as always, I love the beret with this look. I can see why you have a collection. I am working in the garden today and always am fascinated with flowers, those blue ones are beautiful. I dont know what they are. The tunic is the perfect pairing with denim.
    Enjoy your day!

    I was gonna ask you the name of those flowers because I’ve never seen them before and I know a lot about flowers. They must not grow in my neck of the woods. Love your outfit. That top is so pretty. Do you have the app “picture this”? You take a picture of the flower/plant and it tells you what it is. I love the app!

      Thanks so much Amy! Well, if anyone would know the name of these little flowers, I thought it would be you! I thought it might be periwinkle but the leaves are different. I don’t have the app. If you find out, please let me know. 🙂 Thanks!

    I love your shirt, it has a very nice print and it looks perfect with your jeans and your beret. And your mane! It is really beautiful. What a wonderful landscape with these flowers, it is worth accompanying someone as beautiful as you.

  7. That is such a unique and pretty pullover Carmen ! I like the plaid print and the floral design on it. Your beret goes so well with it and the jeans. I am glad you are getting an early spring like us! You will have to tell me the name of those pretty flowers! Have a beautiful day, Terri xo.

      Thanks so much Terri! That’s why I bought it, it’s a very unique design. This is a comfy casual outfit and the pullover is super soft. Not sure what these flowers are called. Glad we’re both enjoying an early spring! 🙂

      Thank you Ute! Our visitors from Germany are amazed when they see our lakes, they are so huge that they look like an ocean. Let’s put it on our list for sure when you come! 🙂
