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!
