The Nana-and-Nola Paris Navy Team . . .

I ended up being able to wear my new boots after chatting with you yesterday. But up 'til then, it's been too warm even to consider tights. So when I found my Nola-matching dress at The Gap a few weeks ago, I had to reconcile myself to wearing it with bare legs instead of adopting my granddaughter's confident pattern-matching style and donning polka-dot red leggings.

I did copy her colour-pairing, though, so those are red loafers you see me wearing. And to match the Paris provenance of her outfit, I note that these favourite red loafers were bought in that favourite city of mine, over 7 years ago. I wrote about their purchase here, where you'll see why they're so significant to me.

Sadly, I lack the necessary insouciance to carry off the monkey pairing, tant pis. But what do you think, could we venture out together in our matching dresses? Or should we enjoy their correspondence at home where the preciousness will not be so widely broadcast?

  1. You're wearing her look so well! :-) BTW, the sweater is coming along - but it's so short I have to add a whole additional vertical panel i.e. 30 rows! 30 cable-needle rows.

    1. We'll all be under coats soon -- that first big rain is just around the corner, so I think Vancouver's safe. ;-) but thanks for the encouragement.

  3. I agree with Vivian! Take the stripes show on the road and wear your dresses together in public! You both look adorable.

  5. Oh yes, you should definitely go out. The dress looks great on you, a perfect fit, both physically and expressively. And the red loafers are the perfect touch.

  6. You most certainly can go out in the stripy dress with Nola.
    It´s amazing, for not a moment could I imagine you being a grandmother - so slim and fit you are!
    You two make a lovely pair. And the red of your " old " shoes is just the right red!

  8. Oh yes please do go out together, your pairings feel very French.
    What a captivating little gal Nola has become, she is so photogenic. I love the Gap for children's wear.
    You are looking very trim and svelte yourself mater and red shoes are the best!

    1. I've promised to take her there someday. And she seemed enthusiastic, but then told someone she was going swimming in Paris with her Nana, so I suspect she pictures a beach like those she's visited in Hawaii, Mexico, Costa Rica, etc.

  10. Oh I think you two would be SO CUTE. And I don't generally go for matching outfits but you two are something special.

  11. I think you should go out together, you both have such insouciance. The red shoes are perfect.

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
