I hope you're having a blessed Lord's day and weekend!
It has been a weekend of lovely busyness with sewing and creating
and new ideas, as well as some deliciousness in a batch of homemade
treats. A joyful weekend is so treasured because it seems to make for a blessed
week in the days that follow it ☺
Although autumn has not shown herself here for good and only in spurts so far,
we did have our first real chill here in my little corner of the South last weekend☺
I could not have been more happy, that is except for if it had been even
colder. I can't wait for those days to come, and one reason is the joy of dressing
for the blessed season of autumn!
Ahh, the burnt umber, rust, & forest tones that offer such rich hues in garments
they are found in to be worn, reflecting the ubiquitously scattered colors
in the landscapes of nature this time of year.

Here, I am sharing today what is most definitely one of my favorite outfits
I have ever worn, one I wore recently which felt like a most lovely
transition outfit from summer to fall...
I took these on the side of and by the front window of my favorite antique store,
and the delight on my face is a mix of the joy I felt at looking at all of the
antiquities and wonderful items so full of history, and that which came from
feeling some cooler temperatures and wearing something autumn-inspired.
Dears, I must say I felt positively wonderful in this outfit...
You know that feeling when you are wearing some you just LOVE... a true feeling
of joy comes to me when I have something on that fits that bill, an outfit
that feels like it has a bit of extra beauty to it, while also being modest and pleasing
to God, and with a ladylike femininity and elegance.
My favorite parts of this outfit were the details of it that led me to call it
Victorian Rust Autumn ... the rich, rusty, deep shade of the cardigan and the
oh so vintage, almost Victorian feel of the lace pattern along its sleeves and bottom,
marrying with the added Victorian element of my cameo necklace!
I think the lacy, old-world feel of my sweater just felt so pretty that- as you can tell-
I couldn't help myself from pulling it out to the sides playfully to show it.
Having had my hair freshly cut was quite nice a feeling as well on this day,
and I decided to do a simple, delicate added touch to my hair with a pearl- adorned clip.
Living where I do, it is no uncommon to see girls wearing dresses or their Sunday best
with cowboy boots, and I love that look when the boots are paired with
a skirt or dress with a country feel, namely denim, calico, or cotton. So I added
a casual element in by wearing this ensemble with my Roper boots.

What a blessed day it has already been, and I am thankful to get
to look forward to spending the rest of it with my family and hopefully
working on some art and finishing a blouse! ☺
I hope the rest of your Sunday is full of happiness!
How has your weekend been?
