My minimal wardrobe could use a dose of energy... as could I!
The basic clothes that hang in my closet are functional and everything works together.
Planning and shopping with the basic shades makes it simple but with the dark days of January here in the Pacific Northwest I find that I crave an injection of colour.
Eileen Fisher would be the designer whose clothes I could exclusively wear and own...
and she works mostly in shades of grey, black and navy in winter.
I saw a sweater from her new spring and summer line made out of a loose linen weave in a soft grey and I absolutely loved it...but the price tag was almost $400. Yikes!
Oh but it would look fabulous with my white jeans...
perhaps...time will tell...I have a birthday coming up in March.
I am getting better at this.
The health and look of my cuticles are improving with the use of gloves and hand cream.
Here is that punch of colour that I am craving and at a price that I can afford!
I met darling daughter for a healthy lunch earlier in the week and tried on her newest cocktail ring.
If you are on Instagram please check out her site.
She has the most stunning collection of jewels and she has an etsy shop where she sells some of her gems.

I am going to a celebration of life which is coming up soon
and I have been trying to decide what to wear.
I will be volunteering at this function.
I went to school with the woman who passed away at 61.
She was a successful lawyer, a court judge, wife and mother.
The volunteers are planning on wearing mostly black.
Vintage Leather vest Pamela McCoy which can be layered over any number of tops
paired with the versatile Lisa Campione skirt.
Lord and Taylor waffle knit sweater.
Pair this with tights and short boots.
Jeanne Beker poly sleeveless top adds some sheen.
Susan Bristol (ages old) knit sweater jacket.
Assorted Pearl necklaces...to layer or wear alone.
Vintage bakelite clamper bracelet.
I may wear a LBD as I have several contenders in the closet.
What do you wear to funerals or celebrations of life?
New brighter lipstick by L'Oreal number 590 Blushing Berry.
The colour is actually darker and richer than it looks in this light.
I bought a new address book to replace the one that I had that was falling apart.
It took me over an hour this past weekend but I managed to update and transfer all the addresses.
New fitness/workout wear from Costco.
Inexpensive and the fabrics are super cozy.
I just heard that Alan Rickman died...I loved his acting and enjoyed his films.
His passing came right on the heels of David Bowie's death,
both 69 and both died of cancer.
I must get out of my colourful Ralph Lauren PJ's...
I've been at the computer far too long but oh my
the coffee tastes good this morning...
Time to seize the day!
