21 Mar Purple jewel tone and lace
I actually took down the picture of the one where I have my arms folded and and was very very cold when this was taken. I just kept going on with my familiar grin, just thinking in my head, as my hubby tries out various angles or views, ” Hurry up now!” The weather I believe should change for the better, high 60s and up next week. I always felt the day OF spring, flowers should be blooming, and no matter how cold or windy it may have been, the sun would appear that day. Nevertheless, we went back to another favorite haunt, where one starts to become familiar, know “your seat” etc. We are not at the point where we order the same stuff and don’t have to open our mouths in order for the waitress to bring the order. That is when you know you go there tooo often. Hubby had a smoked salmon BLT with fries, I shared, and had their coffeebar coffee, delish. I also had one of their flown-in -from -France pastries. What a difference! With a Starbucks scone, or those of the like, you may be able to injure someone as they are often heavy and brick like. ( still taste good) but these are warm, flaky and buttery, so good.
We decided to get some shots behind the restaurant where there are couches people can lounge, eat and drink, and enjoy the view of the Lake in the summer. So, I went out a bit on the pier. I have had this jacket for awhile, but it is still one of my favorites. You know my love of sweater dresses, and the black lace against the grey backdrop, not to mention how it fit, was so nice. I thought to bring out this jewel toned purple jacket to add color interest, and pair it with my plum girly, ruffled and braided handbag by Treesje. My husband was worried it was going to fall overboard. No chance. My chandelier earrings, at first, felt like chandeliers. I received them from Etsy, as a gift at Christmas; I got used to them fast. Had to have my vintage earrings, as these were the first time I wore them.
Enjoy the weekend!
