And Second, I'm really enjoying these white jeans!
These, after all, are a pair I picked up on sale at The Gap, purely on impulse, grabbed in two sizes, taken to the changeroom, paid for the pair that fit, and out in less than ten minutes. (and if that shows in ways I'm not aware of, I'm really okay with you not telling me! ;-)
Good question Lisa asks in the very first comment below. These are the 1969 raw-edge real straight skimmer jeans.
Despite the optimism of the summer-hinting white jeans, though, despite the sunlight you can see slashing through the shadows behind me, it hasn't quite been warm enough that just a jean jacket will do. Solved the problem with this pale pink cashmere scarf . . .
Most important about this shrub, besides its sturdy decorative backbone in the garden, and that contrast between shiny dark green leaves and delicate white blooms, is that these blooms are fragrant. My garden is wonderfully perfumed right now, long before the roses are even thinking of blooming.
In fact, I think that my white jeans and I are going to have to spend some time out there today, soaking up the sunshine (forecast to leave us for rain sometime later tomorrow) and the scent. . . .
And you? Have you a good day ahead? Or at least some lovely fragrance to improve a tough day? Have you succumbed to the siren call of the white jeans yet? Are they on your shopping list? Or still in your closet?
C'mon people, let's get this Spring started! . . . .
