Over the last week or two our weather has taken a leap toward Autumn with a chill in the air in the mornings and evenings. Not that I mind one bit , I am more of a cooler weather girl, any excuse to rug up in layers, and our Winter compared to many in the Northern Hemisphere is relatively mild.
Red and grey is a combination I enjoy wearing as I don’t really like grey on me , so this red and taupe spot cardigan from Alembika that I purchased earlier in the Summer was perfect with my Paula Ryan dress, that has seen many Summers. I added my Trippen sandals, red beads and earrings , bangles , Chanel sunnies and a grey hat. I purchased the little grey hat in Paris in 2016. I found it at a pop-up makers store that I stumbled across whilst exploring the covered passages – I must admit I can’t remember which one but I have a very clear memory of the milliner and her glorious creations.
As I mentioned in a previous post we are planning a return visit to Europe later in the year and will end our travels in Paris , where I will celebrate my 65th. birthday.Maybe I will return home with another piece of the milliners art, you never know.
Yesterday , whilst browsing Instagram I came across a post by Sacramento (Mis Papelicos) where she posed the question – are blogs slowly dying . I was somewhat surprised by the response 79% answered yes. I certainly hope this isn’t the case as I so enjoy reading blogs and learn so much from other bloggers. Just recently I have seen India through Vix”s eyes
(Vintage Vixon) , learned about Russian traditions , including how to make blini’s from Natalia (In the Writers Closet) as well as being continually inspired by Judith (Style Crone ) and her glorious millinery . I find I glean so much style inspiration from other bloggers , particularly those with individual style . We all have different taste and needs in our daily lives but can appreciate others even though it departs from our comfort zone and it is so good to broaden our horizons.
I am on Instagram but post a little infrequently and I do follow many others for a variety of interests but I plan to continue to blog and enjoy other blogs and try to comment more- I have been somewhat lax on that front of late.
