I have been noticing a few trends in the fashion world. I am not sure I will be incorporating all of them in my wardrobe.

 However, there is one trend I am on the hunt for, and it is a trend that I have been wondering when it would be showing up again.

You all know that saying that what goes around comes around again. Well, this one trend is just that!! I wore this trend in elementary school and junior high.

The Peter Pan Collar

The way I see myself wearing this trend is under a black cashmere sweater. I love the contrast of a white collar. This would be a great way to highlight the Peter pan collar, and maybe a strand of pearls too!!

Ankle-strapped Shoes
The other trend I have been noticing, but will not be wearing is the ankle strap shoe. I am a bit sad that I can not wear this trend (ankles are just too big!) because it is so feminine, and pretty on those of you with thinnish ankles.

Isn’t this a fabulous color? Oh how I wish I could wear these shoes.

My DIL actually pinned this shoe, and I thought it was adorable, and just had to share it with my readers. 

Now, she has the ankles to wear this shoe, and to wear it well.

I don’t know why, but I find this shoe very sexy!
Speaking of shoes!! I love a good Segway!!


When we were in Paris I saw these in all the windows of the shoe stores we passed.

 I am kicking myself for not getting a pair of grey suede/leather combination brogue that I saw, and admired.

I can just see these with a pair of wide legged camel pants, and a crisp white shirt and a great belt. Gold chains for a necklace, and hoop earrings. A simple gold bangle on my wrist!!

You all know how much I love black & white!! I had to pin these shoes, aren’t they adorable?!

One last pair to show you, and I would wear all of these that I am showing you……

Cobalt blue is a color I enjoy wearing so I know these would be a fun addition to my winter wardrobe!


I am not sure I will be wearing this trend, but you never know. I did pin a couple of pieces of jewelry that are kind of fun. 

I find wearing a trend in a small item can be fun, and not too over the top.

This is a cute hinged bracelet by Tory Burch.

These are all trends I have been noticing more and more so I thought I would share these with you on a Saturday morning!!!!

Happy Saturday!!

I have been seeing the Peter Pan collars everywhere, too. I don't know if I could pull it off unless I really dressed it up. Otherwise I think I'm a little too old for it! :-D We'll see, never say never!

Hahaha, all of my seven sisters used to wear those collars. Yes, they had to share clothes....still unhappy about it today, I think :)

Hi Kathysue - this post is well-timed for me. I just saw the cutest ankle-strap ballet flats, wasn't sure at first, but I am going to order them now. I wear ballet flats all the time, it would be fun to have something a little different. I love the peter pan collar, but it would have to be a pretty sophisticated blouse for my 40-something-year-old self to pull off, but I love that the model is not sporting the skinny jeans that are ubiquitous this year.
All best,
BTW, Happy birthday! :-)

I love the John Lewis style shoes and the ankle strap style. I have to go shoe shopping. Lost 20 pounds and all my shoes are to big...Who would of thought!
