Today, I want to share with you my continuing efforts to pursue the very old-fashioned notion of dressing like a lady....not just on special occasions, but each and every day.
This lovely Saturday will find me in the kitchen preparing a few special dishes to welcome the children home for the weekend. We will all spend time together, tucked in the back parlour to watch a little football. (Sadly, our Broncos ended their season woefully, so the "fans" in this house will have to choose a favorite among the finalists.)
It would be far too easy to slip on a pair of sweatpants and an old sweatshirt and putter around the kitchen, but I will reach just a bit further into my closet and pull out a sweet jumper to wear today....
(Sorry about the quality of this picture. I thought I would have a little fun and enhance it in Photobucket by cropping it and adding the frame...instead it just came out grainy! )
This cozy, comfy, yet perfectly ladylike jumper fits the bill perfectly! I made this embroidered (with sparkly golden roses!)denim jumper last month and have been so delighted to have it in my wardrobe. Just a warm turtleneck and a pair of navy tights and I am ready for the day.
Of course, I will want to put on a little jewelry so I reach for one of my perennial favorites....my "Mother's Cameo". A special gift from Dearest years ago featuring a Mother cradling her baby...
It's always a nice touch to style my hair and today I decided to wear it down and just curl it with the curling iron...this took only minutes and always makes me feel especially feminine.
Now, I can attend to the needs of my family and home all the while dressed in the sweet fashion and attitude of a lady....
I hope you will find time in the upcoming week to celebrate the Art of Dressing Like a Lady! Please leave me a link to your blog if you are posting about your experience....I would love to pay a housecall.
Yours so kindredly,
P.S. I will post about the pattern for the featured jumper in my next post...easy, peasy and oh, so cute!
