Spring And Summer Dressing



I am taking you inside Nordstrom's today for Spring and Summer dressing. All photos
are inside the Cerritos, California Nordstrom's. This is not a sponsored post.
These are all things I would love to wear. These sandals are my favorite
this year.
 
This is my favorite outfit that I found in the store.


If I was in Hawaii, I would be wearing this.


If I was traveling Europe this summer, I
would be wearing this.
 

Denim is still with us.


Do you have heart for all things French? I do.
 

Sandals are nude for the season.
 

This is by Free People

Do you have teenagers? This perfect for them.
Have a great Spring and Summer. The choices
that I have picked to show you today are more
reasonable then the last post.

The Best Of Spring Dressing



I am showcasing what I think is the best of the best for spring and I
would buy and wear if I could. First up is this magnificent combination
of crop top and maxi skirt by Milly from NM for $295-625. 



Lovefringe sandal by Sturat Weitzman $450
And these shoes. If I could I would!
 
Everything shown is from Neiman Marcus. This
not a sponsored post. These are my personal
preferences.

Eugenia Kim floppy hat $440
For resort lounging or in my back yard I would wear this.



Galassia sunglasses $400
Great new design in a sunglass.
 

Floral top $208
This is from one of my favorite spring and summer designers, Johnny Was.



Tolani silk tunic $205
Gorgeous for walking thru villages or by the pool.
 

St John animal print dress $995
 
Finally a fun and flirty dress for light spring and summer dinners.
Have a beautiful spring full of wonderful memories!
If you can shop for the best, these are some of my picks
to help you enjoy your spring and take great selfies.

Celebrate Spring



Celebrate spring with a homemade Easter basket. I made this for myself to share with
my family. You can make one for your family, friend or yourself. This was fun to
put together and not that expensive. I leave it out for family or friends to help
themselves to whatever catches their eye in the basket.
 
I put dollar gold coins (I got them from the bank)
in plastic eggs that I got at the market.
 
We have a See's candy shop near us and I got the finger puppet on a candy cane, the
 chocolate egg, sour bunnies, foil wrapped bunny and orange cream suckers from there.
Everything else I got from the market including my favorite shower gel, Neutrogena's
Rainbath in pomegranate. There is some cotton candy hiding in the back of the basket
and inside the Hello Kitty tin are Jelly Belly candies.
 
Pink is my color for Easter and spring this year.
 
Have a Happy Easter.

The Contenders



These are the stars in my garden today. I will probably stop showing so many shots of my
roses when springs gets here-spring is here- and the rest of the country has beautiful roses, too.
This color is always so rich it takes my breath away.

 
 

 


Do you see the little green spider on this rose? I am always
trying to capture shots of the critters.

I love how my roses have these subtle and sometimes
not so subtle changes in color. You've probably seen enough
of my roses by now and are looking at your own or looking
forward soon to seeing yours. Good-bye for now from
my rose garden and welcome to spring!
(The sun has been so hot here this week that it has burned
the outer edges of these rose petals.)
 
Very shabby but chic...

Vintage Marketplace 2015



This weekend I visited the Vintage Marketplace in Rainbow, California which is across
the freeway from Fallbrook, California. This beautiful chandelier is among a few
I found at the Marketplace. Do you see the price tag of  $200.00?
 

The crowns are votive candleholders.
 

This was so sweet but needed wiring.
 

I fell in love with this chair.

Chandelier close-up.
 

I have no idea where this is from, probably somewhere in France. It looked old.
 

I liked this pillow.

This caught my eye altho I did not purchase it.
 

They had something for the little ones.
 

This sweet image was painted by Christie Repasy  on the front of her booth. 
 

They had wonderful things like this that you could use for your spring flowers.


Pretty shot.

This is a shot of me taking a picture of me and my childhood friend Penny at the Marketplace.
We were reflected in a mirror.
 
 

It was a beautiful day in Southern
California. I was joined by my
daughter Jenny as well as my friend
Penny. We had a great time.

Peaceful Garden


Last week it was supposed to rain when Mr. COS and I visited the Sherman Gardens 
in Corona del Mar, California. A short ride to the beach, down the freeway from us.
I captured some beauties to share. First the roses. This lovely rose is called "Iceberg".
 
 This is the "Bewitched" rose.
  
This rose is a budding "Orange Juice" rose.


This is the "Orange Juice" rose is full bloom.


This is the "Peace" rose in full bloom.


I can't resist trying to take a picture of the bees.


This garden has some beautiful exotic plants. This one caught my
attention. I did not get the name. Sorry.
 

The Koi Fish Pond.


This is an orchid plant. Magnificently beautiful.


In the outdoor pond they have some turtles lounging. It was about 65 degrees and some sun
was shining through the clouds. It never did rain while we were there.
