I always feel such happiness, as I have probably mentioned a few too may times (smiles), at dressing for the winter season! Recently, I enjoyed a perfectly lovely afternoon and evening walking through one of my favorite historic towns and having dinner over the river with my family, and I dressed up a bit that day in my current favorite fabric: velvet. My velvet dress and its flared hemline make me feel so feminine and wintry, and I paired it over pants with a sparkly bow hair pin and a necklace that feels somewhat Victorian-esque to me, oh so pretty accessories I have been loving wearing lately.
Velvet Dress/Tunic // Old Navy
Necklace // Plato's Closet
Jeans // JC Penney
Boots // Kohl's
Bow // Forever 21
Bracelet // Gift

A walk through this town and soaking in the history of this inherently charming place is always like being away from the world, time spent so happily enjoying the quiet, slower pace of things and eating at our favorite restaurant. From the beautiful, old dance hall to our delicious meal (including the most deliciously tempting pasta I have ever eaten, which I order on every visit☺), the wintry & vintage cheer of the antique store, and the sunset as we drove home that evening, I am sharing a few photos of the views I love here from that day.
I will be doing a bit of traveling and taking some vacation time, which is such a great blessing I thank the Lord for after such a time of busyness this season, which I'm sure so many of you can relate to.
If this is my last post of 2017, which I believe it might be (due to being away), I want to wish you, dear friends, a most truly blessed, joyous, special, and wonderful time with the loved ones you cherish in the following days and in the last part of your year, and I send you many warm winter wishes! I also thank you SO very much for your kindness and loving hearts you have shared with me in your friendship and caring and encouragement and loving words, both in your own inspiring, beautiful posts and your truly, truly sweet comments and messages. I am so grateful for your friendship! It is the greatest present this time of year and always☺
