Double frilly and reflection


Since I have several peplum blouses already and if I keep accumulating some more, I keep my eye on the details for future purchases such as this one. A peplum top with double the frill, well yes please ! Very girly, very me of course. I missed out on the white one but black is as good as the white. I think it is becoming an obsession or maybe my subtle excuse to keep buying more, lol !

On the other hand while we are shooting, those ducks keeps coming close to me. They think that we are there to throw some bread. It scares the hell out of me ! I can't stand still knowing that they are just behind me and getting closer and closer. I've been photo bomb !

As I ended this post, I can't help but reflect on what had happened from previous days. Although we have expected it to be sometime, death is inevitable and yet still sad. My father in law died last Thursday and loss his battle with Alzheimer's/dimentia. It's been a tough 2 years for the family as we watched a love one slowly slipping away. This disease is a monster, it's is horrible and would not even wish on your worst enemy. We were deprived for a more happy years with a man my son called Papa Jim. 

Have a great weekend everyone. Be safe, happy and healthy !

  5. Count me in as in love with this whole look. Though frilly & super femme, the black countered the uber sweet quality of the peplum top. And how great that you mixed it with a pop of bright cobalt & yellow for the ultimate win!!!

  17. I am so sorry to hear about your father in law. I can relate, because my grandfather died of the same thing. I was really young, but it took a toll on my family. He lasted 2 years like your father in law. My prayers and heart go out to you. I love your double peplum. It is SO PRETTY! This is my first time seeing one. I like it better than a regular peplum. It's like you're a beautiful flower. HAHAHA About the ducks. I saw them in one of your pics. Love your heels too!

  23. Ah, the peplum. Looks great on you, black, minimal, so chic. I love the contrast, black vs electric blue.
