no cake or candles to mark the occasion just another post!
What I wore when the skies of the Pacific Northwest opened up and gave us copious amounts of rain.
There was a destination and a mission.
A command performance.
Mother was involved...
Mother and I had a date.
One does not dress down when out with Mother.
She sets the gold standard for dressing
a former nurse
and a fashion boutique manager in her later working life...
she does not dress down
she dresses up
and I do mean everyday.
Mother can be ill and still be coiffed and comported.
She will have jewelry on and pearls are her mainstay beads.
Baroque and Opera length if you please!
A pashmina will grace her shoulders
a handbag or clutch
it's all part of her ensemble.
I wore my Burberry coat
black ponte trousers
black ballet flats
and I carried my new thrifted Italian ostrich leather bag.
Italian Cecconi Piero Ostrich bag
a surprising find from the thrift shop.
The frosty greeting that met me in the front garden
of The Humble Bungalow.
I scraped the windows of the Volvo wagon before driving the block and a half to pick up Mother at her condo.
Seat heaters on...check.
Symphonic music tuned in...check.
Hair in place...check.
We went out for a bit of browsing the boutiques
before tucking into a "wee tea" at a local Tea Room.
A repast that engaged us in a lively dialogue that lasted over an hour...
it might just be our new "go to" spot.
The weather has been quite surprising...
clear and cold
raining cats and dogs
crisp and freezing
cold and frosty....
Garments are hung by the door ready to be chosen at a moment's notice...
scarves and gloves are everyday items now.
Hand lotion is applied several times a day as the chilly weather makes ones hands dry out.
Sipping warm beverages
taking vitamins are part of everyday life here.
What are you doing to adjust to the new season?
