Everyone assumes that they’re already married – and that they’ve been married for years!
On Tuesday, they decided to make it legal, for so many reasons…
They dashed over to the Justice of the Peace in the middle of the afternoon, when they got a phone call that they could sneak in during a gap in the schedule. They went dressed in their “work at home” clothes!
And now, they’re going to sneak off for a long weekend together!
They’re going to their favorite city, for a few days of museums, concerts and dinners. Nothing over the top, but lovely and romantic!
She’s never packed for a last-minute honeymoon before – but she things this will work just fine!
How can she wear these things? She’ll be just fine:
I think this would be such fun!
p.s. Four years ago, our heroine based her travel capsule wardrobe on a painting of passion flowers and hummingbirds…

It’s such a romantic notion to suddenly get married without fuss and bother. I think that I would have dressed up slightly.
These are my favourite accent colours which are scattered liberally throughout my wardrobe. Such is my love of this combination that my study is also decorated in these colours. The dark midnight blue is also my navy neutral.
I’ve tried teddy coats on but they just make me look like a small round bear! It’s probably because they are often a loose cut. I like that this coat is slightly fitted.
Wow ! Love the color with white. His other works are grand. I just had a look.

I had to go look, too. Impressive. Reminds me of some of Rothko’s stuff.
Love this! Maybe it’s because these are all colors that speak to me!
Wow, that is a lot of white. The wardrobe is quite pretty, for me I’d use the dark blue as the neutral on the bottom (except for maybe one piece) and white as an accent piece, if that makes sense. I can certainly admire anyone willing to pack that many white items for a weekend…. and wear them.
My best friend is this type of brave soul. She flawlessly wears a lot of pure white/winter white – in Chicago!! 😳
Beth T says
I’d also wear navy on the bottom.
Marcel Rozek…wonderful work. Great inspiration for a wardrobe.
I like this wardrobe and would wear it all (except the white boots) – provided there was no precipitation in the forecast. The accessories are especially lovely. These pale colors lift one’s spirits in January and February (in the northern hemisphere).
This is my favorite color combination of all time. Beautiful!
Oh, I love these colors too Janice! I would also probably flip the navy and white just because I’m horrible at staining. I finally have one white button up sleeveless linen collared shirt I’ve managed to keep in good condition for a few months. I hope it lasts.
I don’t have any white shirts, but just bit the bullet and ordered a pair of white chinos. They just look so crisp and nice when I see them in outfits. Here’s hoping……
Puts me in mind of a pair of ivory cords I wore and wore until they frayed. Ivory is a beautiful neutral.
The accessories are gorgeous.
Beautiful, Janice! Love the painting, colors and the white boots!
This is such fun! I remember one of my favorite posts ever, where the heroine and her belovedest eloped to (why yes) Paris for their wedding. Her wardrobe was so pretty and the whole story was great.
Thanks for brighting up our mornings Janice!
Cheers and blessings to all!!
So my personal changes would take out the purples and use the yellow and green instead. Love the ivory! Would have gone much dressier…goodness sakes, one’s own wedding should call for something really special. Even most war brides when you read what was written of a hurried wedding during rationing tried to have a little something special. Funny thing, I knew a lady who was married on her lunch hour in a pale green skirt suit, but she had a corsage, gloves, etc. Granted, that was when ladies wore hats and gloves with the shoes matching their pocketbook. Mary’s wedding photo was adorable. As a child, I was fascinated by her photos and her stories of what it was like then.
I’d have to add a tiny bit of yellow after seeing the painting–maybe an enamel pin? A sunflower for Ukraine? One of those blue and yellow elastic cord bracelets? Just something, somewhere.

I love the ivory and I love the accent colors…but in addition to issues of practicality, I’m not sure whether I would feel unbalanced with such a light cardigan and pants and a darker top. I think it might be easier for me with accent colors that are a bit lighter.
Janice, I hope you congratulated yourself when you found those 3 stone earrings and the pink-edged scarf – they are *chef’s kiss* here.
These are beautiful colours. Instead of the ivory I would use the navy for summer and a mid to charcoal grey for spring and be very happy. I might also add in the green and yellow just because this entire painting floats my colour boat. It would be a shame to ignore any of it!

The ivory boots with the pleated skirt … astonishingly beautiful!
Beth T says
I went shopping today – looking in proper shops for a new burgundy jumper. I was thwarted by knitwear in pastel or very bright colours. Traditional berry colours didn’t feature. However, I was very tempted by lilac.

It seems the link for the white boots sends us to the white bag.
I would wear the boots all the time with everything.
Thanks for letting me know! I fixed it…
This is such a fabulous wardrobe! I love the colors.
I love these colors! What a beautiful painting!
Susan from Dublin says
Thank you for fixing the link to the boots.
I saw the light natural colour and I like it a lot. It is a lovely colour for times when the ivory might feel too light.
That type of light tan colour tones in with most other colours well.
