As I sit here, realizing we missed day one of the fashion week, I am shocked at the fact that we are already in the first week of March, and that Daylight Savings time is this Sunday! Where did the time go? Well, enough of my ramblings, on to what Charlotte and I wore for day two of the TV/Movie fashion event (it’s going on over at Bramblewood Fashion right now. Click on the button on the side if you haven’t already).
We were inspired by a movie we learned about just recently (haven’t seen it yet, though we might be allowed to soon) called “The Magic of Ordinary Days.” I don’t know much of the story, except that it is set in the 1940’s and is about a young woman who marries a Farmer (I’m not going to say anymore about it, lest I get my facts mixed up) but the fashions are really pretty and Livvy (the main girl) has a great sense of style.
|Don’t you just love Livvy’s hat in the middle picture? I have one similar… I just need to find a summer skirt and blouse to go with it.|

I love Livvy’s blouse/skirt combinations, and I wanted to wear my 1940’s pussy bow blouse to channel her style into mine, but it was too cold to wear it alone. So, I paired it with my new-to-me navy blue sweater, which, when combined with my tan wool skirt made a decently 40’s-esque outfit in my opinion. What do you think? Did I capture the 40’s as well as Livvy’s style in my outfit?

Originally I was attempting to recreate Peggy Carter’s look from Captain America; however, after seeing Brigid’s *adorable* ensemble, I decided instead to go along with imitating Livvy’s style from The Magic of Ordinary Days… and, though we’ve never seen the movie, I am simply in love with Livvy’s wardrobe! Can I have every piece? Pretty, extra pretty please??? 😉
Anyhow, my outfit was inspired by the fun, bright colors portrayed in her clothes, with plenty of class and maturity intermingled.
