    1. Instagram is lazy blogging. It's so darn easy.

    2. ...ah, I see...like Melanie, I don't have a phone that takes pictures...also, my phone is attached to my kitchen wall. Which is okay because I like to spend time in the kitchen, LOL. PS add Cocoa into the hungry cravings, :)

  2. Hahaha. Yes, I dumped that load of elegance out at the back door. Now where's lunch?!
    You and Pancake are way more nicer and elegant than that Coco person. (This is lazy blogger commenting.)
    I'm have fears about Instagram. I may get on there and never get out... But I don't have a phone that does pictures so I don't have to worry.

    1. Wise move to stay away. Instagram is very addictive. Just what I need. More opportunities to waste time.

  4. Ha! Very creative and you're much cuter! For lunch we're having stripes and pancakes!

  5. I would follow you anywhere, cherie, but Instagram is for smartphoners only, and my cell is so old it has a rotary dial. But if you want to catch a flight to Roquebrune, I'm there! I'll be the simpleton to your elegance.

  6. What fun! Love this outfit and this post! I was just thinking to write about my $10 phone from Fred Meyer, but Sue's phone attached to the kitchen wall is really hard to beat! :)))

  7. Hello Connie,

    Yes, the parallels are definitely there.

    You look so casually chic in your striped top and trousers. A winning combination.

  9. I adore that you named your dog Pancake! LOL

    Love that you recreated the same photo.

    I have never to been to this wonderful land called Instagram. I'm scared about yet another social platform overtaking my life.

    bisous

  23. Imagine the nerve of that Chanel showing up in the same outfit! I never did like her-you look nicer (and Pancake too).

    No Instagram here because I'm a bit of a Luddite with one of those pay-as-you-go phones, but hopefully you'll cross post for us here too.

  28. You out-chic Coco, you do!
    I set up an Instagram account but then realised that it was for smartphones and that's no good for a Luddite like me whose a second-hand, pay-as-you-go mobile phone owner.

  29. Slick! What a bloody legend that woman was, and what a difference she made to women's attire!
    Hahahah, yes, it most certainly IS Butters I am referencing! Closet South Park fan! Matt and Trey are top of my most desired fantasy dinner party guest list! Mad buggers, I just love 'em and want to feed 'em up!

  31. Ca alors, comme tu es mignonne! I must say you give Coco a run for her money, and your quote is the best! 'What's for lunch?'. Love it! Oooooh, I've got instagram, I'm going to go and find you now. xxx
