Girly Girl Rock.....

Sometimes a girly just likes to feel kind of pretty!  This outfit definitely made me feel soooo pretty.  To be honest, I’m just not that delicate.  I like to try to make my husband believe that I’m a delicate flower, but between us girls, I’m a pretty sturdy kind of gal.  If I were living in the middle ages, I wouldn’t be the princess in the castle being vied for by knights chivalrous.  I’d be more the peasant stock, a breeder if you will, hauling pails of water and baskets of onions from the fields, pausing only to drop a baby enroute to Ye Olde Village Inn & Ale House. 

But this outfit makes this little peasant girl believe that she too can be a princess!  I put on this skirt with the jacket, shoes and belt and as I was looking in the mirror, pulling up my slip (yes, I’m a bit of a pruuuuuude), I kept pulling the skirt up higher and then thought, “Good Night Mary Pickford!  That’s it!” and the next thing you know little Miss Peasant was now little Miss Leggy!  So the skirt got turned into a dress and I went totally girly girl with the look.  Between the lacey high neck jacket and the lazy up do; I felt quite the Jane Seymour vamping Christopher Reeve in Somewhere in Time.  My next post will be of me, the following day, wearing this same skirt AS a skirt……I think it’s my new favorite!

  6. I love this outfit and the jacket is amazing! The best way to live is like a peasant girl who has princess in her rather than a DIVA princess who feels deserving of being in the castle...You look gorgeous...go have a fabulous dinner somewhere so the world can see!!

  7. Great outfit! I have the same necklace and it is wearable with tons of things. Bought mine at the City Market in downtown Indianapolis from a lady who had an Avon booth. Would like to have a bracelet with similar components.

    Thoroughly enjoy your blog and look forward to your posts (and comments).
