Just a Spoonful of Sugar

This outfit, with the hat, boots, umbrella and large bag, is a little reminiscent of one of my favorite childhood movies.... Mary Poppins.  Maybe a little Mary Poppins inspired with a feminine twist.
The hat was a gift from my husband.  It came with a feather in it, but the feathers got wet and needed
replaced so I added this little flower I cut off from a fake bunch of thrifted flowers I already had.  The rosy mauve top and beaded necklaces add the touch of "sugar".
Add an umbrella with large bag and lace up boots and viola!
Today I'm linking up with Patti from Not Dead Yet for "Visible Monday".  How can one not feel more "visible" paying
tribute to that magical lady Mary Poppins?
I'll leave you with a couple of her wise quotes:

"Well begun is half done."
"In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun, and - SNAP - the job's
a game!"

Thrifted Items:  Dusty Green Skirt $5 derek heart from Kohls (new w/ tags on - originally $26), rosy mauve sweater, beaded necklaces, purse $8 black leather Fossil, coat $5.

Tunic Repeat

I wore this outfit on Nov. 5, but the lovely Dawn, from Suitcase Vignettes, has encouraged me to actually put it on and post it (With me in it!! Gasp!) so that I can join in with Silverstyle's "Trending Through the Decades:  Tunics" link up.  Dawn is dragging me out of my internet blogging shell to do this....but here goes.... I thought I'd give it a try.  I've been inching my way out anyway, but might as well take the least for today.   Bonus =  I learned how to do these hyperlink thingys.  Yay!   :)
