  2. That is a gorgeous coat! I saw a similar one at JCPenney a few months ago, but slightly longer. The shape was very cool and as flattering as yours, but the color was too orange for me. I think yours is more red, and looks great with your blonde hair!

  4. I love your two reds and can't take my eyes off the combination of blouse and skirt, which looks like it's made of gauzy wool. Now something like that would be appropriate for here, I woke up and it is snowing, oh no, yet again!
    (You list blouse and shirt, I take you mean blouse and skirt?)

    1. Thanks for noticing my spelling mistake! The skirt is made of cotton with an top overlay of eyelet. Snow here is starting to melt but it seems so slow this year.

  5. Stunning red coat! I can't wait to wear my red trench. But due to heavy snowfall today it might be my down coat again... oh no!
    Red goes so well with your hair. The photo whith the glittering remainders of snow in the background is fabulous.

    Happy Easter!

  24. A great coat is a joy to wear ... even for a little time in Spring and Fall. What a great eye you have ... have I said that before? If I have, it bears saying again. You look lady-like without being fussy or dated, and know how many or few accessories to add. And an enviable shoe wardrobe.
    Always a treat to see your blog!
