The blogs That's Not My Age and Une Femme d'un Certain Age featured beautiful, white pants worn elegantly and looking so enticing. Oh the wave of jealousy that washed over me. I want to wear MY white pants...I wanna, I wanna! But I can't even imagine how I would get through the rest of a Canadian winter if I started dreaming about white pants now.
I have two pairs of white jeans that I love. One pair is from 2 or 3 seasons ago, boot cut Hudson jeans with pocket flaps in the back. I know pocket flaps are supposed to be a no-no for women of a certain age...but they're great for those of us who have flat derrieres. Thanks to that post Friday on TNMA ...I'll be hauling them out again this year. I love boot cut pants especially with heels or with flat, strappy sandals.

Yes... the only white around here right now is the snow piled up around our back door, covering the deck and barbecue and causing havoc on the highways. Believe me, if you've never driven in a white out...you're lucky! We're stuck "rugging up," as they say down under.

The new down coats are so much nicer than they used to be. Slimmer and more chic. I love mine. And I even found one that is not black...but a beautiful, plummy brown. And it works really well with several nice scarves that I already own. Can't beat that!

But, you know.... when I look at my pictures... wearing white now just seems so wrong for me. Brrrrr. I'll stick to my cosy plums and grays for a while yet.
