Tuesday Reflections

Dear Fashion Friend:

Every summer, I love traveling to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Some of my favorite spots include Copper Harbor and St. Ignace. Whenever I am there, I enjoy visiting the shops of local artists. Over the years, I have found the most beautiful selection of pottery and photography. Another wonderful UP town is Wakefield. There, I met a wonderful friend named Nanette. She has her own shop, selling yarn and offering knitting classes. Nanette also sells locally produced jam and maple syrup. All delicious. Nanette is an enchanting person, and I enjoy seeing her when I make my annual pilgrimage to Wakefield. I hope you will take a moment, dear Fashion Friend, to visit her website: www.nanettesknitsandgifts.com/index.html.

I am sure that Nanette would love this Boho floral dress. Its V-neck design is enchanting. Its floral pattern, which lives up to the brand name of www.aleyacollections.com, captures the essence of the spring and summer months. I think Nanette would agree that this dress, which comes in both Blue and Peacock, makes a delightful addition to one's spring/summer wardrobe.

What about our model? As always, her demeanor is captivating. Her eyes warm and charming. Accessories and makeup are immaculate. Finally, I love how the photographer has set the scene for this photoshoot. Our model, who poses beautifully in front of this vintage automobile, come across as adventurous and keen to understand the world around.

 

She looks like someone who enjoys the great outdoors. In this raucous world, our model takes comfort in the words of the model Genevieve Effa: “You should always take time to find the beauty in the world around you. What's something beautiful you've seen today?”

I hope your visit to www.aleyacollections.com was an enchanting one.

Sincerely,

Gabe xoxo

I absolutely love Boho chic style. It’s so beautiful and so stylish. The designs & fabrics are colorful and flowing. Accessories are always important with Boho chic. Belt, purse, scarfs, jewelry add so much style to an outfit.
Great post Gabe💜🌷
