  1. You look so pretty with your huge glasses, mens' tied knot and this particular, warm smiling.
    The pictures of orchids are so nice also and I dont know what is the C treasure but it looks really really nice. A purse ?
    I begin also to like scarfs with colours like the bug one I took yesterday and my husband sid "ouf" for the first time, my preference going to darker colours... But as I told you, you made me changed a little be my accessories.... Spend next couple of days very good. XX

    1. I agree! This is a fabulous photo of you! And the men's tie knot is my easy "go-to" knot (being an only child, I learned how to tie this very early in life, and have tied many neckties over the years).

      Congratulations on your Karo, and your beautiful orchid.

  5. Bonjour!
    First I'd like to thank you for suggesting the Rendez-vous Rive Gauche scarf. My friend is on the lookout!
    Secondly, I have been madly re-pinning your entries on Pinterest (I'm under Barbara Acuff) I have a board called Hermes-a-holic. It's officially a medical affliction!!
    Lastly, you look lovely as always, and I'm particularly fond of the men's wear knot. This is my go-to travel look, with the Converse for comfort,
    Enjoy your luminous orchid!

    1. Bonjour Barbara! Love you all your boards on Pinterest (I'm one of your followers), and your H board is just fabulous..including the link for my readers here: Hermes-o-holic
      Wishing your friend the best of luck for finding the RdV RG! I've just come back from Paris, where I wore mine all the time (it was too cold and rainy for my Converse though). Hope your knee is improving, have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Brava, dear! I love this look, and you are positively glowing! I'm mentally running through my scarves which have a accents of white in them, believing this is the key to pulling it together, correct?

    Congratulations of your new Karo (love the color). It's perfect with your CI, which I still hope to find one day. Your orchid is lovely. Thank you for the time progression photos.

    Warm orange hugs,
    CS

    1. Excellent conclusion, my dearest CS! In addition I opted for the sneakers (in combination with the Bolide), thereby 'tying' the CI further into the look. Alternatively, the rubis Picotin would have done the same job in a different way, in which case I would have gone for the blue RVs. I'am always keeping my eyes open for a CI, hope to spot it (or several) one day <3 Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. A very happy spring to you too, dearest MaiTai. You are a vision, so divinely beautiful! A tie knot over a white shirt is one of my favorites. A big welcome to your gorgeous new Karo, the prettiest color for all seasons. And many happy greetings to all the lovely blossoms - how magnificent is Mother Nature. Hope you had a most wonderful time away, dear MaiTai. Wishing you the best weekend, with all my love and a million happy spring hugs xxx
