What do you think of when you hear the word lavender?
This is what comes to mind for me…my inspiration for today’s outfit.
I’m joining Terri @RAGS against the MACHINE for virtual pajama party today. Tobi looks sleepy…
You like my house shoes? It’s April and I’ve got fur shoes on. I’ve always been plagued by cold feet…no matter what time of the year. Besides, hubby keeps the house so cold!

11 worst burgers? I guess it depends on your point of view, but I would say 11 of of the BEST burgers 😉
Haha, well, you don’t have to watch your waistline!
I guess it would be hard to find burgers of this “yumminess” where you are. Be safe!
nothing even close here!
As always, great style. I really love the top – gorgeous – I want!
Thank you! It reminds me of the 70’s… 🙂
It does actually – but a timeless look all the same 🙂
I think of France when I hear the word lavender 🙂 I used to go there with my parents every year.
Oh, how nice!! Do you still travel to France?
The last time was five years ago unfortunately.. that was with friends. Now my parents own a sailing boat so we go sailing on the Dutch seas and lakes a lot 🙂
Wow! That sounds wonderful!!
It is, thanks. Holland can be beautiful sometimes 🙂
LOVE that blouse – it’s so romantic! And those lavender pants are so fun! You and Tobi are so cute in that PJ picture!!! The mug is the perfect touch! 🙂
Hubby thought the blouse was kinda hippieish?! I just like the embroidery details.
Those lavender jeans pants are so pretty!!
Thanks Alicia! 🙂
I’m currently in Texas surrounded by fabulous meat dishes so I all avoid the second part of this post for the time being lol. I like the pairing of lavender with the neutrals, makes the look very classic on you overall x
Lol! I hope you’re having a super time!
love your jeans!!! and my God …. these burgers… wow
“A heart attack waiting to happen” burgers!! But, it tastes so good!
Gorgeous, gorgeous outfit and pictures! Lavender always makes me think of peace and calm!! I also love the PJ picture you did for Terri’s party! You are so classy!! I hope you can stop by to see the Fiesta Fashion Show I covered yesterday!!
Lavender is such a pretty color…
I did see the photos from the show! Looks like a fun time! Thanks for sharing!
gracefully50. You always bring beauty, sunshine and laughter to my soul. So many girls in Africa are called Lavender and looking at your pictures, I now understand why! The ugliest Hambugers made me laugh although I did lose appetite for Hamburgers at the moment. I do very simple meals. Regards to Tobi. Thanks.
Thank you Omwa! So sweet!
Those nasty burgers are terrible for your health but tastes so good!
I hope Happy is doing well!
The lavendar pants are so feminine.
My hubby keeps our house a little too cool for my liking also. I just bundle up in my sweater, or robe and blanky at night to watch tv. And we have several layers of blankets on our bed. You’re making me realize I really need to invest in some classier pajamas though. I have things along the lines of bright lime green and hot pink jammie pants with monkeys on them. haha
You sound like me. I’m usually in sweats and socks. I also keep a blanket nearby as well. I have a few of those funky comfy jammy pants, too! 🙂
I tried on two pairs of Lavender jeans last week but decided they were too much for me and bought white ones instead. Good for you for wearing lavender jeans! I love how you’ve pair them with a frilly white blouse. Beaituful!
I’m sure they looked great on you. The white jeans are definitely more versatile…a must for this spring & summer.
Super cute, Jeannie. I just love lavender! enjoy the weekend.
Hope you’re having a good one as well! 🙂
Most of those burgers would be a whole days worth of calories…yikes.
You look stunning as always.
Yikes is right!! I had no idea they had so many calories,,,even the healthy turkey burger!
I’m loving the silk pj’s! x
That Tobi is just the cudliest little pup ever. He’s all ready for nap time! And your nutrition info has me grateful that, although I love burgers, AND I love bacon, I don’t love the two together. Whew!
Yes, he is!! 🙂
Haha, why is it that delicious foods are mostly bad for you? I’m getting tired of eating like a rabbit! 🙂
I am a new reader…..I find myself looking at your blog as one of the first that I read. It was a great blog this time…..from the lavender to the worst hamburgers.
Thank you! I SO appreciate this very much!
Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
THANK YOU for that post–not only do I WANT that shirt right now, but promoting awareness of the dangers of that kind of food is such a needed thing to do. I think that abysmally unhealthy eating and excessive reliance on painkillers (both over-the-counter and prescription) are the most dangerous and destructive health threats in North America today. Drastic action and more dissemination of information on these matters is desperately needed. Can you tell you hit a nerve?
There was a great article in one of the recent 2012 Vogue magazines outlining the terrible dangers of over-the-counter painkillers which I would encourage people to find and read.
Here’s to health, the number one way to prevent aging.
You ARE passionate about this subject!…rightly so. I agree with you about the unhealthy eating habits and the drug abuse in this country. I just wish the fast-food chains would think about our children, and make the food healthier without using SO much preservatives that’s SO BAD! Fast-food has become a way of life, and I doubt that will change anytime soon. 😦
That is right; it won’t change. People need to be informed and responsible for their own health. And that means doing the tough things, asking doctors critical questions, reading LOTS of labels, and saying “no”–to themselves–a lot.
People are dying off in droves because of painkillers and nobody is really doing a thing about it.
Oh you are such a delight! How soft and pretty you look in this combo. Very girly, romantic. You even have nice pj’s!!! Didn’t see the JR Whopper on the count…..does that mean it doesn’t count..lol.
Haha, JR Whopper maybe the 12th worst burger…who knows? I was in total shock when I saw the calorie count on those burgers…yeek!
Have a great weekend Judy!! 🙂
Hi Jeannie, few things are as nice as lavender. I love the smell and color. It is a valuable source of inspiration to make an outfit. Today you saw a beautiful blouse, with a very nice fabric. I love the way they have sleeves. And the pants, lavender, are gorgeous. The bag is spectacular in form and colors. As always, perfect. The outfit has a wonderful romantic touch. Congratulations.

Thank you for such a thoughtful and sweet comment. I love the youtube link for the violin concerto…it’s beautiful! Thank you so much!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Love the lavendar! It looks beautiful with your skin color! and your hubby is getting pretty good at the photo shots 🙂
Yes, I think so, too. I’m very fortunate that he’s still hanging in there with me.
Have a wonderful weekend Laura!
What is the orange in the background on the first few photos? Thank you for linking up to the pajama party–you look so elegant!
We have a couple of those bushes growing in our yard, but I don’t know what they are. I’m clueless when it comes to plants and things…
Love the white and lavender look (and the lounge shoes are adorable!)
Thank you! It’s pretty sad that I have to wear those in April.
When i hear the word “lavender”, i IMMEDIATELY think “Lilac”. especially this time of year… great outfit! like the mods to the pajama party pic, too! you are completely and totally adorable! happy weekend to you! thanks for a much needed smile….
Oh, so sweet!! Thank you so much daisyfae!
Yes, lilacs are pretty!
Hope you have a fun and safe weekend!
I am only qualified to answer the very first question. What do I think of when I hear the word lavender?
It is neutral. It is peaceful.
I hope this does not seriously damage my image as a macho man.
Haha! No, not at all!
Thanks for your comment!! 🙂
I would never have thought of wearing lavender jeans but I absolutely love yours!
I’m fond of it, too!
Love the shoes! And ditto to kittehluvs on the low carbs 😀
Thank you!! 🙂
1) lavender is one of my fav. Scents! So relaxing.
2) you look amazing in that color!
3) I eat lotsa burgers without the bun as my diet food 🙂 love low carb dieting ’cause I get to eat all sorts of yummy things and still lose weight
So much calories in those burgers….no wonder they’re so good!
