wardrobe inspiration from Nature
You remember my recently-knit silk scarf, don't you? I thought I'd show you how closely related its colours are to my surroundings. Here's the beach in front of our house:
This yew tree trunk has more red in it, especially in the sunlight, but there are patches that echo the scarf's tones. I love this palette, with the soft yellow in the foreground and the contrasting greens in the background.And I love this new metallic leather cuff I found, very Chanel-like, which manages to be earthy and metallic at the same time (which makes sense, I s'pose, since metals come from . . . well, you know!).
I had a wonderful time in Vancouver this past weekend -- art gallery, shopping, great food, good run, movies-and-snuggling, lunch with an about-to-burst daughter, visiting in the dog park with another daughter and her cute little pup, all the good stuff. But the highlight had to be the meal my daughter, the sous-chef, cooked for us at her restaurant -- seven courses, three wine pairings, amazing! I'll tell you the details in my next post.
Meanwhile, if you're interested, I rather like what I wrote over here. Come visit, if you have a minute.
