Snow Queen

Bonjour Lovely Ladies!

Well it's here! the white stuff, la neige, le tapis blanc, the white disturbance, call it as you like it, but yesterday, it hit Montreal!

But there is something kind of romantic about the first snow and just the first snow!
I am looking through the veranda door this morning while typing this post and i admit the snow on the trees, on the century old garage, on the lawn, on the fish pound is pretty- But in February i  will not find it so romantic and wish for Spring to come.

i have read your comments and it seems that male species is the same all over the world! with some exceptions of course - My Mr. D is somewhat making different choices in term of style, like purchasing a pair of fantastic Steve Madden boots in NY and wanting to grow his hair a bit and adding a little color to his wardrobe - can not wait to see how the hair will look longer - Mr. D is a 58 year old with lots of hair- who is the lucky girl!

I was up early this morning, like most mornings, menopause will do that to you , a couple of hot flashes and you are up! I can not sleep in the mornings anymore - but it is a good thing! this is positive thinking again! And I like to get an early start anyway.

Since i have been on sick leave, I like to rise before daybreak - - Gives me a chance to see Mr. D before he leaves for work - I make a fresh pot of coffee and go about my day...

So today i am going to the doctor's office to have my insurance papers filled out - Do you think i will have more than 15 minutes of his time? After all I paid $100 for that... and later i am meeting F from the YWCA to play English teacher...

I was wearing
Faux Fur Jacket Thrifted many years ago at boutique Cul de Sac
Hat - Thrifted at Renaissance Montreal
Skirt - Thrifted at Renaissance Montreal
Victorian Booties that i found in my old apartment - Thrifted at Renaissance
Gloves - Betsey Johnson

Enjoy et je vous fais la bise xxxxxx

Snow already, ahhhhhhhhhhh how fantastic. It never snows here in the south od Spain.
I am glad to hear that you are flowing with your hot flashes, and loving your time off.
You look glorious in blue, and the first photo in the snow is fantastic, Ariane.

just me said...

YES there is no such beauty like the first snow. so romantic and pure, but you're right with every other snow the good feelings disappeared. I love to snowy till New Years Eve, after that all i want is Spring :)

lovely photos. good choice of outfit in blue :)))


pastcaring said...

Snow always looks so beautiful, especially when it's freshly fallen, but I do hate having to go out in it. Especially when it turns to icy slush!
And you look very beautiful too, love your jacket, and that electric blue suits you so well.
Keep warm! (The hot flushes probably help a little too much with that!) xxxxxx

Anne @ The Frump Factor said...

I'm on the record as hating winter, but even I must grudgingly admit that snow is pretty. And you have the right idea -- stylish yet snow-appropriate clothing can definitely ease the pain! Enjoy it while you still can!

Vix said...

You look utterly fabulous, Ariane! that cobalt blue shade is wonderful with the white coat and the yellow nails.
We had snow in the UK this time last year but thankfully nothing so far so I can continue to wear high heels!
I can't open that attachment, boo!
Keep warm and stay fabulous!
much love, Vix

Patti @ NotDeadYet Style said...

So, so fabulous! You are indeed the snow queen and I love those boots so much.

sacramento said...

Why don´t you have 5 rather than 3???
If you change subject in your writing separate them with photos. Like so:
writing + photo+ writing.
It looks fantastic

sacramento said...

You are soooooooooooo CLEVER!!!

Only a couple of weeks ago you were have a very warm fall and now winter is here and I get to see you in more of your amazing clothes like your beautiful white jacket, hat and gorgeous blue sweater!! Yes, you are very lucky to have Mr D - he sounds adventurous:)) xoxoxoxo

SassyUptownChic said...

Ariane, I am loving your jacket and hat girl. It's so sweet! You wear the best stuff. I like you because you have FUN! :)

Larissa said...

I absolutely agree with you about the "first snow" of the season being romantic- there's always something so magical about it. Last year, our first and only snow hit at midnight and the white flakes in the darkness- it turned me into a kid again. hehe. I love your sweater btw- those blues together are so pretty on you! :)

Mongs said...

Love your fur coat and hat, so beautiful, the snow looks lovely in the background. I love your outfit colors, looks great on you.

Thanks for following, following you back!


CGG said...

fashionoverfifty said...

so true--the first snow is romantic but not so much in Feb!
Love that blue--you remind me of a skater from the turn of the century a bit with the white bootes and the longer skirt!
