This bold jumpsuit is a good old friend, one of my favorite pieces, and I showed it twice on the blog (HERE and HERE). I tried to pair it with my long ivory vest (THIS ONE), but it didn't look quite right - you see, due to the uniquely cut sleeves it's not easy to find the right jacket to wear with it. It's a picky number, it likes to be a star and shine alone. Coupled with most partners it just looks random and goofy ... or plain ordinary. But if you find the right pair, then they both will shine, and so will their union - the whole ensemble will sing even more beautifully. It is true not only about this jumpsuit, of course! With other clothes too. And even with people!

I don't write fashion reports or anything like it, ever, but today I'm making an exception, because I almost EXPLODED with joy and excitement when I saw this collection! I think I actually was jumping up and down and promised my husband I'd be the best wife on the planet earth if I can have some of these pieces (uh-oh). So of course I decided to write about it because I just have to share - and Justin heard it all, twice, or rather three or four or five times by now! Created by Teresa Maccapani Missoni, granddaughter of the famous Missoni founders, especially for Eloquii, the plus size fashion forward company, it offers 22 pieces (24 if you count two different colors for a couple of pieces in the collection) for women wearing sizes 12 to 28.

I believe it's our very first April photo session, even though I've posted a few times this month already, but those were all March outfits. It's a subtle difference, but it's there. There is a little more sun, even on rainy days. The temperature is a little warmer, even if evenings are still cool. And days are a little longer, so we can enjoy walks later in the day.

Time flies when you're having fun, they say. I guess we've been having lots of fun lately, because I didn't even noticed when March ended and April began. We've been busy reorganizing, both our cottage living and our inner living, and while I am not ready to share my thoughts on the inner part just yet, I can tell that the latest house project is repainting Anya's room and getting a few new pieces of furniture, which we haven't done in years! So it is very exciting, and I hope to share some pictures soon.

It was a sunny, yet breezy day in Seattle, when Justin, Anya and I were walking through the streets of downtown which with all the tall buildings became wind tunnels, and I was wishing I had three, or better yet four hands to keep my cape that was trying to escape, and keep my floppy hat and flowy skirt down while also holding a purse and umbrella, in case it rained. We were walking to the most unusual event about which we got a recommendation just a week before, to see a presentation about bees and mushrooms - two subjects that we were curious about, but in a very separate-from-one-another way. I think that by now, many of you are aware of the critical situation with bees for the past several years, and you also might have heard that in January 2017, the first species (the rusty patched bumble bee) was officially declared under the federal protection (more about it HERE). Several more types of bees are potentially endangered in North America. Bees are the essential pollinators of wildflowers, fruit and crops, and it is pretty obvious that scientists are concerned and looking for ways to help the bees, and therefore plants, planet and us, people. But what does it have to do with mushrooms?

While I'm waiting passionately (not so much patiently) for the return of my fashion muse, I thought I'd share a few more or less recent outfits as well as some of our latest adventures - that should stir things up in the meanwhile, right? It better! Modish Matrons are coming in only a couple of days!
