Remix Day 3, 4 , and 5

Hey everyone!

My family just arrived home from our lovely trip to Williamsburg this evening. I am so glad we were able to go and visit with so many other living historians and see how they did their impressions of history. We were able to glean so much information and were inspired!

Here are my outfits for the 3 days we were there, Friday, saturday, and today. I was not able to do a photo on friday unfortunately! That was the day we went antique shopping or window shopping and I wore the yellow dress with the vintage lace I sewed on in day 1 of the remix with the same grey top underneath and the black cardigan I am wearing today on day 5. Sorry forgot to get a photo. But here is friday and todays remix outfits.
The first day we went to williamsburg we were able to go to colonial williamsburg and see their museum that had historical clothing. Many antique peices that were wonderful to see! Clothing, weapons, and even 2 harpsichords. I am standing next to one of the harpsichords. I wore a purple top that day with a crocheted white scarf from a friend and the plaid skirt I made recently.The next day I wore the yellow dress again, but forgot to get a picture.

Today I wore the plaid skirt again with my favorite periwinkle top with the black thrifted shrug I bought 2 years ago for 4 dollars or something like that. Its a favorite! It goes with so many things and I have been using this challenge. I also wore it day 3 and 4 as well. Its so versitale! I also wore the pashmina indian shawl as a scarf again today. Its so versitale as well! It was only 12 dollars from a friend. I use it for civil war and 1812(regency) reenacting as well.

I also used the bag that Ashley made for me over at Bramblewood fashion! Go and read her blog! She has great modest fashion ideas over there! So does her sister Gabrielle! Here is their blog- http://bramblewoodfashion.blogspot.com/

Ashley I love the bag and I use it so much! It was great for all my food, camera, and notepad and pen to jot down things I discovered and for my Bible as well when I had a chance to read it while we sat on a bench. It was truly a relaxing and refreshing vacation. Now I am challenged to start new with a schedule and many goals. More about that to come!

Well I hope you all had a lovely weekend as well! Tomorrow I will do a seperate post with pictures from our trip to Williamsburg!

God bless!
Rebecca

Aw, I really want to visit Williamsburg again. I dearly miss that place. I love your outfits like always, Rebecca dear. :) And you are so brave to do the 30x30 challenge. I've been wanting to do it for awhile now, but haven't got the nerve yet. lol.

And I'm so excited that you love the bag I made!!! Don't you just love how much it fits! That was always my complaint with most store-bought purses. They could never hold everything I needed on trips. :)

Sorry, for the long comment. It's more of a short letter. lol. But what can I say? I miss you girl! I wish we lived closer to each other!

love,
~Ashley
