She first got in the habit of going up to the resort in the winter… She went by herself, but ended up making… a friend… In April she went back – partly to see spring flowers, and partly to spend more time with her new friend…
Our heroine is a very informal, relaxed woman. She loves nature, and quiet, and peace… She draws her style inspirations and color palette from a favorite Renoir painting:
I’m Off After 5 Every Day This Weekend…
And so she’s headed back to the lake resort… beautiful days by the lake, and evenings with her new friend!
She wants to be careful not to be too dressy, but this is a special weekend, in her mind – worth packing a couple of dresses, and her prettiest tops and scarves.
Nothing extreme – no strapless goodies, or skirts slit to THERE…
She planned very carefully, and she made certain that she had no visitors when she was getting packed. Her friends and family aren’t going to understand…
When she gets everything together, she’s happy with her choices. She might even have enough clothes to stay an extra day! It could happen.
As she hangs up her clothes, she rehearses in her mind what she will wear with what:
It’s going to be a lovely weekend. She just has this… feeling…
That was a beautifully calming post to read , and the colour scheme fits that mood perfectly.

Yes! You put it perfectly.
I agree too. This my favourite story and colour scheme. It’s inspiring me for an Autumn trip to Europe with my special friend (husband). Looking calm will – I hope – help me to be calm while negotiating international airports, busy train stations and unfamiliar places. And then there’s romance …

Very soft, feminine and pretty!

I just bought those Eileen Fisher pants for my Paris trip in September. I’m definitely working with blue and green as my colours with grey as my neutral.

LOVE this woman and her grey/blue wardrobe, her need for calm and secretive adventure/romance. It reminds me of the grey and blue wardrobe from the 12 months’ series, so feminine and just plain pretty. Really looking forward to her next chapter!

What a cliff-hangar! I can’t wait for the next chapter in this series, both for the clothes and the rest of the story.
I love everything about this post. Strangely soothing. Will enjoy a continuation of both the story and the wardrobe. Thanks.
