Madison Avenue Pink Saturday

I took a very unplanned, but equally restorative, staycation this week. I'll write more about it in a post later this week, but one of the things I did do was a long -- almost three mile -- walk along Madison Avenue. I didn't do any buying, but I had a good time window shopping and taking pictures for Pink Saturday. There were some fabulous pretty-in-pink sights all along the street.

Vive l'ete -- Long live summer!

One of my first stops -- window shopping only, no calories -- was at one of my favorite places, Laduree. The macarons were, as always, tempting, but I had miles to walk and pictures to take and I kept walking.

I'm sad to say I don't remember which major designer had this pretty bouquet grace his/her window. I loved the bouquet, but I also liked the reflection of Madison Avenue in the window. If you look carefully, you can see my sneakers in the reflection, bottom center of the photograph.

   Thank you, Missoni, for an all pink window. Generally the designer windows are too high style for this senior citizen blogger, but I like the floral dress. I think it would be just right for a summer garden wedding.
While we're thinking of weddings, here is a photo of a pale blush -- or is it gold? -- gown in the Vera Wang window. Madison Avenue goings on and the photographer are reflected in the window.
This is only for window shopping and definitely for Pink Saturday.
I'm definitely back from my staycation state of mind. I'm blogging, doing errands and in a little while I'll be back in the gym. I did a lot of walking outside, but gave myself a few days off from formal exercise. Now it's time to return. Sleeveless dresses definitely call for some time with weights. 
I hope you're having a sweet Sunday. As ever thanks for visiting, and take care!

Not that I'm in the market to buy(!), but it's nice to see the simple, classic lines once more. That Vera Wang gown looks like something from The King and I!

It's fun to see you in the reflection. This month is flying by, that's for sure! Enjoy your week! Hugs, Diane

A city of reflections - awesome.

I do like that dress in the window also. I love that women are wearing more dresses in the past year or two. I always feel better in one and it means that instead of making two decisions on what to wear, you only have to make one.

You had a nice staycation and I enjoyed the vicarious window shopping with you.

Walking, they say, really is the best kind of exercise and you were blessed with lots to see.
