Green and Spring are always a perfect match, so when I spied this duster coat in my favourite shade of
green , in Hobart recently I knew it had to come home with me. Chartreuse has been my very favourite
green forever but is so hard to find that whenever I come across it in a garment that fits my wearability
criteria it is added to my wardrobe.
Today’s post marks the third anniversary of Grownupglamour, where has the time gone, so to celebrate
I have donned my prettiest hat, floral bag , beads and orange gloves and really should have had a glass of
bubbles in hand but alas the cellar was bare. I am often asked why do I bother to blog , what is the appeal?
What started as a challenge to myself as I was turning 60 has delivered more than I could have hoped in
terms of creativity and learning both about myself and others . The friendships of like minded souls can
never be underestimated in the value they add to the joy in our lives.I had the great pleasure of meeting
Sacramento (Mis Papelicos) in Malaga in Spain earlier in the year, a joy I would have been denied if it
wasn’t for blogging. We have more travel plans in the future so maybe I can repeat that joy of meeting
a fellow blogger .
In fact I was pleasantly surprised at our local Farmers Market recently by a lady next to me in the egg
queue , who recognized me from the blog and was a regular follower. I genuinely didn’t realise anyone
local even read the blog. I must admit to being rather chuffed.
Anyway, a big thank you to one and all for all the support and encouragement I have received over the
last three years.
Now for some details the duster coat is linen , styled in Japan and made in Italy and is ApuntoB , worn over
black cotton pants by Australian designer Nicola Waite (these have seen many Springs) , shoes Sergio Rossi
I have had these for many years , they are like new as in reality they are too high for everyday , orange gloves, a Paris souvenir, beads and a hat from Tasmanian milliner Susan McArthur.
