A Colorful Moon by Alain Paillou - Revisiting for Spring 2018


She's always loved the moon... And found this unexpectedly colorful photograph to be the perfect inspiration for her wardrobe:

She was bowled over when she was told she needed to travel to the capital because of an issue with Probate Court! But when she received the expense check to cover her travel (and a bit of shopping), she was prepared to make some smart choices. This is what she packed for that most life-changing adventure:

ivory sweater - Pringle of Scotland (similar here); moonstone pendant - Emma Chapman Jewels; moonstone earrings - Temple St. Clair; flower earrings - Temple St. Clair; ring - Alethia & Phos; scarf - Max Mara; apricot sweater - Humanoid; blue sweater - Stella McCartney; watch - Movado; skirt - Pringle of Scotland; clutch - Jimmy Choo; silk skirt - Forte Forte; pants - Joseph; rectangle scarf - Caslon; blue socks - Free Press; gold loafers - Vionic; copper flats - Vince Camuto (similar here); ivory flats - Trotters; handbag - The Row

She's still getting used to the idea of being able to retire... She just worked the last day of her 4 week notice to her employers, and she's heading away for a couple of days, to a city in Mexico of which she has heard a great deal...

She's not meeting a realtor; she just want to BE there for a day or two, to see how it feels. She's certain that she will know if she wants to go there for a while, within just a few hours...

She didn't want to take much with her - her new jewelry HAD to go with her, but otherwise she just wanted to have... enough...

She's only there for a long weekend, so it's not as if she needs to bring steamer trunks full of stuff!

Just a peaceful town - that's all she wants. Someplace where she can study Spanish, and read, cook and see the moon at night...

love,
Janice

  4. Beautiful -- but I would advise against traveling with such lovely, expensive jewelry, even if she can afford to replace it!
