Turning Heads Link up and Periwinkle Blue


Hello Ladies

Time to Link up! I am sharing with you a new cream pleated Zara skirt with a periwinkle blue top with detailing. I love this color even have it in my Brahmin bag!


My New Zenni Cat Eye Glasses are one of my favorite accessories, not to mention I can’t see without them!




You know I had to go with a small dose of florals today! These are the floral shoes I showed in one of my former posts.


I know, you can say it. I have a “fascination with florals”, ” a pontification with petals”, a revelation with roses”, a “penchant for peonies “. You get the point! I have always loved flowers, since I can remember. It probably is due to the soft colors, the romanticism, the beauty in nature I have always found appealing.

Today I wanted to share with you another favorite. The color periwinkle blue. A cross between purple and blue tones, you see it in my top as well in my Brahmin handbag. It reminds me of the Rhodendron flowers. Ooops. I digress.

I wanted to do more of a sold look today and sneak in a bit of floral with the strappy shoes you have seen before when I highlighted some flats. My skirt is from one of my favorite shops Zara, and it is a cream colored pleated faux leather mini which I find will be very versatile in the season.

Skirt: Zara, Bag: Brahmin ( last yr) similar, top: Ebay, Shoes: Amazon.

I decided to feature some ladies with florals or pastels that “pop”

I love this ensemble by Willfully Elegant!   I have the bottom half of that top! ( the skirt)

    It’s a beautiful color, one of my favorites. The skirt and bag are so chic together. And the floral flats give the whole ensemble an even more romantic vibe in addition to the top.

    Hi Jess! Jannenga is probably a Dutch name, is it not? OK, back to blog business. I am contemplating getting a plead skirt but wasn’t sure how to style it so it doesn’t look I stole it from my great aunt. You got me convinced!
    Periwinkle blue is a great shade, its one of my favorites too. Have you quit smoking? I noticed a little plaster on your arm….:-)
