I SO wish my mum would have let me take her picture, but you'll have to use your imagination. Note, she has silver white hair and rose-gold glasses.
A silver, blue, white, and black paisley blouse in satin I'd bought her about five years ago.
A purple and black tweed jacket from Laura Petites
A purple, fuchsia, blue, silver, white "cocktail" ring
Pearl earrings and pearls
Pink nail polish
The blouse showed a bit below the jacket and at the neckline for a really interesting and unexpected pattern and texture mix
The only thing missing was the booties that she still wants...but probably really shouldn't wear, at least not with the heel she keeps talking about! (I have heard mutterings about stilettos....don't forget she is 87 and broke her ankle and foot last year!)
My outfit was a lot less interesting by comparison. But you see, these taupes are getting a LOT of wear, as is Mary K's wonder scarf. For which I am endlessly thankful.
Apologies for the wet hair!
