I haven't been able to do any "daily outfit" posts for a while because of the rain and snow, but I managed to snap a few photos this morning! It is the first day that the sun has come out in ages, and as a result, the incredible Mists were rising in the meadow. Here I am on my soggy porch in one of my favorite dresses:
The underskirt is a brown prairie skirt that matches just enough in my opinion, and it makes everything flare out in a doll-like fashion. The hair bow is a piece of long black lace that I thrifted last week, and I just realized it makes a fab 1985-style headpiece! Look for this one to show up in many photos to come.
The porch just ain't very romantic, so I traipsed down the meadow hoping to capture some of the magic mist-light. Photos taken in the morning are very hard to get right, but I think this one expresses the spirit of the outfit:
Dealing with winter lately has been very un-fairytale-like (well, unless you are talking about the scary parts in The Hobbit, which I am re-reading this week) and non-glamorous, so I have been upping the ante at work: yesterday I wore a gold outfit that would normally be reserved for a Saturday night dance-a-thon, and today this, more of a typical "weekend" dress. You can't see my makeup but cat-eyes in black kohl are a very important part of making myself feel better about the muddy, freezing reality of the Siera Foothills. Give them a try-- they can brighten your whole day!
