Today felt euphoric.
I'm not sure I could quantify the feeling properly, though I'm almost positive everyone has felt it before-- and maybe even today, with me.
Some people call it a 'lazy day', but that seems to belittle the beauty of the inner tranquility a special day offers, like today.
Though I have oodles and oodles of time, days like this really are rare for me-- I'm fairly good at masking my displeasure through my propensity to craft and write while I'm blue.
I took full advantage of the feeling, and just relaxed. I let go of any sense of urgency the things in my life were provoking, and did whatever my hearts whim desired.
I guess that meant going through my wardrobe, heh.
I unearthed yet another piece I brought back from Canada during my last trip, and realized that I didn't remember when I last wore it...
So I dressed up!
The featured piece is the blouse; a delightfully vintage-eque mutton sleeved slice of whimsy.
The blouse was given to me by my mother; I feel like one of the only adults that allows her mother to dress her up... I love it. And why not? Her taste is immaculate.
I paired it with a lovely long velvet full skirt. It appears to be black, but it shifts with gentle shades of rich brown; it reminds me of cola!
Wouldn't you know it, but when I stepped outside to take the photos, I noticed that a creeping vine was playing through the weaves of our outdoor furniture-- how lovely it is! I should light the fire pit, and spend more days out on that furniture, especially with how magnificent the fall night sky is unhindered by blinding city lights!
The outfit couldn't be complete with two other pieces I haven't yet featured; the belt and the boots.
Along with my pvc lace up boots, I brought back with me my lace Victorian boots. I found them at a bargain at the local Flea Market.
The lowest number they had was size 6, but with a lace up boot the extra length doesn't pose much of an annoyance-- and they are quite narrow which I'm very happy with!
The belt was purchased on ebay (I'm an ebay-holic) for a whopping $3.80 with free shipping!

I purchased it from the store I linked in the photo caption; shipping was about a months time, but that is to be expected from its location. The quality is the same as the quality you'd find at a mall retail shop-- it's surprisingly good for how much it sells for... considering that at the shop I worked for, this piece would retail for $30.
Well, anyway. The weather had its part in todays sheer beauty; it was softly warm, with a cool breeze blowing in from the horizon. Just perfect.
