What’s on me, in Spring!

I’m about to Spring clean my wardrobe. Not an easy task, by any means! Last year, while away in Tasmania, Australia, I bought lots of fab clothes & shoes! It was Spring in Tasmania but a cold, cloudy one.

As I live in the SW of France, I know I’m  guaranteed a lovely, warm Spring season, & I had that in mind when I went shopping “down under.” Well, Spring is nearly upon us, here, in France, and, it’s time to pack my Winter clothes away!

Firstly, I’ll start preparing my shoe robe. In Spring, I like to wear flats with cigarette pants (trousers) & a nice breezy top. I like casual elegance & am a huge fan of leopard print flats, they never fail to add a hint of sophisticated oomph! to any outfit. I like, too, funky shoes for faded pale blue jeans & a white shirt, not a stiff & starchy one but again, I’m always going for a “comfy” elegance. after all, Spring can get quite hot in France!



Next… Spring invites white dresses,  light frocks & skirts! It’s a fun season & you can go nuts!!! on throwing things together to make gorgeous, eclectic ensembles! Jeans, shabby chic with white always looks amazing & such a timeless look, too! Add some fab accessories, a big lemon bangle & large hoops earrings or something I love; a huge turquoise necklace & “voila!” you’re def rockin’ & a-rollin’ to the beat of Spring!




I’m 52. I encourage you if you are an older woman to throw your two digit number out the window & simply BE! if you like it, wear it. You’re an original. It’s a fact. Love it.

Get ready to welcome in the cheery season of Spring with a “spring” in your step & your wardrobe x

I wear a little of this strikingly vivid, purplish, red color in all 4 seasons.  It looks particularly classy with a soft yellow-bIMGP2583 (3)rown, so sophisticated with white & just stunning with black. Fun & high-energy with turquoise & flirty with a yellow hue & complements beautifully with mint. Remember, a little, just a ‘touch’ always looks elegant. I wear my much loved, two-toned fuschia flats to death! (& shortly in need of a new pair) & my thrifted fuschia jacket was a bargain buy, again for an apple & an egg, someone paid for the brand name & I got to get the jacket for next to nothing! It’s a feel-good color, puts a spring in my step! So, go get your fabulous fuschia ON!
