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 first want to thank everyone who has participated in the Turning Heads Tuesday link up. I really appreciate your support and hope you enjoy checking out each other’s posts, I do! We had a great turnout last week, and I hope for this to continue meeting new lovely ladies!!**

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)

    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….:-)

      Yes, so right! I noticed too you are from the Netherlands. I should say it is my husband’s ancestry. Very good!! Glad you like this blue it is a favorite, and go for it with the pleated skirt.
      I don’t smoke, it is a chronic pain patch I have to wear as i have a rare connective tissue disease called Ehlers-Danlos. No problem!
