It's a Plaid World

I was on my way out the door to do some accessories shopping (shoes, bags, jewellery, etc.) at the local outlet mall and I asked my husband to snap a picture of me in my latest creation. So, for your perusal,
Gotta love linen, eh? Wrinkles and all, linen is still one of my my favourite fabrics. And my latest love, seersucker fabric - it just screams summer!

ETA: Gaylen pointed out that I look a tad disgruntled in the above picture - I look grumpy because at that moment it looked like it was about to rain on me. Gaylen also mentioned the absence of Simon. So, here's another picture (pardon the blurriness) which remedies the prior two problems. Look, a smile and a sweet pooch - for what more could you ask?

Shannon you don't look thrilled with having your picture taken and Simon is missing from the photo - but the outfit looks great! Happy Shopping. By the way - I think I tagged you for a little sewing related meme - g

Simon approves of your outfit (as do I), and he looks like he's ready for a treat. Cute photo--pets almost always add a lot!

Vicki said...

Yes, the outfit looks great on. Perfect colours! Simon is looking expectantly - "some goodies for me??"

Thanks so much for updating the photos. Simon does look like he's waiting to be handed a treat. Did you see the picture of Lucy from today? g

You look fab! Linen is one of my favorite fabrics too, in fact I'm sewing a linen dress right now!

you can't beat cotton and linen for comfortable summer wear.
Love the color combo and the plaid!
