Winter White / Winter Fruits

Winter has arrived in my part

of the world, bringing with it 

cooler but still clear and sunny days.

The perfect day for my winter

white coat with the faux fur


Pairing the coat with the new

season pears and apples,

purchased at the Farmers Market.

Always a joy enjoying our

seasonal produce.

Each changing season

has its own joy, I am grateful 

to live where we have four 

distinct seasons.

Enjoying the winter sunshine

in my garden.

Another joy of the winter season

for me , the change to my

winter hat collection.

This winter white hat 

from Crochetta is from
the 80s.

Taking the winter whites and
winter fruits to join
Share-in-Style with the
very creative Sacramento.

    To see a winter coat and hat paired with pear is most unexpected… and FUN! Loved the combination. How wonderful that you have fruit grow even during winter! I find Australian bloggers very creative and whimsical, and you are no exception! Thank you for joining the fun at Share-in-Style!! Sincerely, Natalia xxxx

    Hi, Jill, thanks for you comment on my blog. I've heard from a few people who've lost their jobs in the last few years – I guess it's not unusual at all these days, and in spite of legislation it seems the older workers are usually targeted. Oh, well, it's their loss! Good luck to you in whatever direction you take.I love your white on white outfit. That's always so classy, and the hat is a great find! I think what really takes this outfit into the COOL zone is the leopard gloves – fab!

    Our legislation is the same but discrimination is such a hard thing to prove.We mature workers have so much to give, its just a matter of finding the right fit.I am with you, I hope to continue beyond the set retirement age but in something I enjoy. Thank you for your comments on the outfit.

    I'm a sucker for a faux fur collar, it always adds a bit of glamour. The hat looks wonderful on you and have to agree with Val about the gloves giving the whole outfit a cool edge.
