The weather is warming up (82°F as I write), so I am shifting for the moment from the Fall Paris Wardrobe to Los Olivos Summer!

This outfit was inspired by my new Trippens…

The style is called Union, and it is in one of my favorite Trippen colors…
“Black Ice”.

The pants are V8712, an OOP Marcy Tilton pattern…

I made View C, added a band at the bottom, and made sure to use these cute
pockets..they are particularly fun in stripes!

The fabric is a woven stripe in shades of gray on white, from Marcy Tilton.
The top is Style Arc Daisy, without the extra hems. The fabric is from the mists of time (i.e. I don’t remember where I got it). It’s a very drapey smocked rayon.

Hanging with Buddha…(and yes, I’m showing off the glorious roses 🙂

Maggie was up last weekend and we did our “fun in the kitchen routine” as
usual. The April cover of Saveur Magazine caught my eye in the market; Dave and I enjoyed our trip to Sicily so much, and particularly the food and wine, so I knew we would enjoy this:

substituted Quinoa for the Couscous, as Maggie is GF 

and we also made Sicilian Caponata, from the same issue.

The peas are from Dave’s garden! It was a delicious dinner!

And on to the sad part…we lost our beautiful Paddywack 5 days ago…
He was only 6 ½, he went suddenly and way too soon. He was, of course, a 
part of the family, and as readers of my blog know, my beloved Fashion Accessory.

R.I.P., Paddy

I’ll be showing up at Patti’s Visible Monday later this afternoon, so pay us a visit!
