The Day of the Rose

by Chéri Marie

In many different ways, today is all about roses! I adore roses 😉 They have special meanings depending on the color but no matter what shade you prefer them in, they are all part of the natural beauty of our wonderful world.

In fashion too of course! 🙂

TIP: Take your favorite floral dress from Spring/Summer and pair it with black opaque tights/pantyhose and black heels/black boots to elongate your legs. You can top it all off with a cute black jacket for cold weather. Most times this makes a fabulous outfit! I do this all the time…

…And so does Claudia Schiffer!

And to finish this rose post…I love roses in all colors but I thought this chart was cool and good to know!

May you all have a rosy week 🙂
