thrifted threads: mauve

welcome to 'what i wore wednesday'
i'm linking up with lindsey and the ladies for some fashion fun.
it has taking me a while... but i'm finding rhythm and structure to my days again.
after having been gone for over a month, 
it has been really challenging getting back into routine, 
while ian had no problem jumping right back into work, 
it has been doubly challenging helping my two teenagers 
get out of their pajamas before mid day !!
slowly but surely...we are getting there.
to get through all my little chores - i've been living in comfy shorts and loose tops.
this mauve crocheted sweater was a thrift find from two years back.
i have fallen in love with everything crocheted 
and am easily thrilled to find thrifted crocheted pieces to wear.
talking about mauve...
did you check out how gorgeous these bulbs are !!!
i had spotted them in several florist shops in paris, 
and was so happy to photograph them while strolling through a 
temporary art exhibit in the luxembourg gardens.
i can't tell if they are part of the tulip family or not?!?
the weatherman has forecasted lots of sunshine for the week,
so today i'm tackling my garden.
messy is an understatement because the squirrels have been busy dehusking our walnuts.
it's a big clean up job so i'm starting early,
but for a break this afternoon, i am hoping to get to the victoria art gallery.
our free passes have come in.
happy hump day everyone !



  1. It's hard to get back into the groove after such a fantastic vacation I'm sure.
    I love, love, love the lavender, it's a favorite color of mine and your top is
    just so pretty!
    Happy Wednesday to you.

  2. Cute top, and beautiful flowers! I can't get my teenager out of his pajamas before midday and he doesn't have jet lag for an excuse!!

  3. Love the top! I can totally understand trying to find your rhythm again after a holiday, especially one that was a month long. I hope you find your rhythm again soon.

    Keep us posted on those teenagers, although from what I hear it is completely normal that they are still in PJs at noon :)

  4. Sounds like such a great vacation! Very cool top and pretty flowers!

  5. You are so good at finding gems at thrift shops. That is a great top!

  6. you do find good stuff, don't you? I bet I would be dragging from a month away. Lovely flower photos and lovely you!


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
