This outfit is quite clearly Downton Abbey inspired...after I first began watching the series when it started last year, I quickly fell in love with the feminine styles and long, high-waisted skirts. Without my even noticing it, the styles crept their way into my wardrobe, and I found myself wearing more blouses tucked into high-waisted skirts. It just seems like such an elegant, timeless style to me, and it also has that hint of romance. I love the feel of a full length skirt against my legs, but I do trip over the hem every few minutes...their only downfall for me. I threw this outfit together quite quickly before church and was pleased with all the compliments I received!
Now, I think I'll scurry off and squeeze in some more knitting before bed...that sweater is certainly taking shape, but I have absolutely no patience. Knitting a garment takes so much longer than stitching one up, and sometimes I just want to fling my knitting at the wall! BUT...it is something to do with my fingers while watching movies, and then when it's finished, I'll have a warm feeling of satisfaction. I do want to hurry it up, though! I've been reorganizing my wardrobe, and I've found so many items to refashion!
I hope you all are having a lovely week!
