Indie Chic Outfit of the Day

Hey friends!

I have thought about where to go with my blog and what to post about. It seems I have been posting in spirts these days and not been posting regularly  I want to give you all regular posts. So I have decided Outfit of the days are one of the easiest posts for me to put together. I enjoy being creative with my dress and strive to glorify God through it. So you will be seeing more outfit posts on here. With school I have not been creating as much in the sewing department or reenacting as much as I would like. I am excited to churn out outfits from the clothing I already have in my closet. I enjoy reading other blog that focus on fashion. So here it goes, I will try to be a semi fashion blogger. :)

I have been loving my leggings this winter. I wear them with dresses, skirts, and even under jeans to keep warm. So you will be seeing these a lot! 

I bought the fushia beanie from the etsy store called Sennursasa. I wear it almost daily in the cold winter months. Its a fun color and so warm and comfy! Be sure to check out her etsy store for beautiful knitted items.

I found the denim jacket with the fur collar at a consignment store when i was shopping with a friend and I love it! My sister Bethany says its not her favorite, but I think it adds some casual charm to any outfit worn the right way. It can look frumpy with long skirts or jeans, so I wear it with more feminine dresses/skirts and it works.

Have a lovely rest of your Monday God bless you! Oh and a big thank you to my sister Bethany for taking the pictures. Isn't she a great photographer! She knows how to make me smile. :) What are you all up to today? I practiced piano for 2 hours this morning for exams and then went to lunch with my sister and another friend at Panera Bread. Now we took pictures and I am getting ready to drink a cup of tea and sing my heart out for a few hours to study for exams. I am learning The Music of the Night from the Phantom of the Opera and its so fun to sing!

Battle of the Bulge 2013

Hi everyone!

I have hardly any pictures to show for it, but I did attend the Battle of the Bulge reenactment in January. I wish I had more pictures, but here are a few.

I am not sure what was going with these soldiers, but poor them having to drill in the snow!

 I wore my great grandmothers coat from the 1940s the whole weekend for warmth. It makes me look huge, but thats ok. I rather be warm and look fat, than skinny and cold. ;) It was fun taking pictures in front of this jeep. I know I should have done outfits pictures each day while I was there, but alas I did not think of it.

No ladies, I did not wear those ugly boots to the dance, I just wore them to walk there in the snow. I changed into my dance shoes when we got there. ;)
 This blue dress was the only dress I wore the whole time, I wore skirt and blouses each day except for this dress to the dances. I bought it at the flea market at the event actually for only $30.00. It was a bargain and I was so excited to find it. I think its silk, but it could be polyester. My friend Rebecca, yes her name is Rebecca too helped me add in a handkerchief insert to make it modest. What an ingenious idea! I never would have thought of that and she thought of it right away.

Rebecca and Rebecca. ;)

 Another new friend Raquel and I before I went to the dance. She was so kind to help me with my hair. I wish I could replicate this hairstyle as well as she did it that night.

Tonight I attempted to do victory rolls again and its sort of sad how they turned out. But I plan to keep practicing to get them up to par soon.

I hope this post was fun to read and look at despite the lack of pictures. I did not realize I did not take many pictures until I got my camera back. Oh well!
