Red

 This is what I wore to visit my husband's very elegant European grandmother.


The cardigan and dress are thrifted. The cardigan is recently thrifted, but the dress has been around since late fall. This is the first time I'm wearing it for some reason. I guess I've decided it's more of a spring/summer dress than fall/winter dress.


If you were wondering what was in my hand it was Sunshine's leash. There she is sniffing around.


The cardigan was discarded quickly. It was cool for a second after the rain, but then temperatures rose again. I'm a little worried about summer. It's going to be a scorcher.


Here are my strawberry shoes. I call them my strawberry shoes because they are shoes with strawberries on them. 


I love this dress. I love the collar. I love the texture. I love the color. It is just a lovely dress in which to visit an elegant woman. When I came home, I changed into a "This Tee is Bananas" T-shirt because you need balance in your life.
