Blouse:  J.Crew Blythe blouse {3 or 4 years old… similar here and here and here}
Skirt:  Joe Fresh {similar here and here}
Clutch:  Le Chateau {purchased about 2003 maybe?}
Shoes:  Charles David Katya {Also available here.  Loving the shape & surprisingly comfortable for the price and heel height!  Will be on the lookout for more colors}
Bracelets:  Gorjana chain; thrifted bangles
Midi/Knuckle rings:  Ardene {just meant to be cheapies to test out the look… After wearing between one and three knuckle rings for about a week, I have to admit, I am quite liking the trend! Similar rings here here and here}

I bought this skirt during a brave moment a few weeks back, and I am surprised how much I actually like it.  It’s a little outside my comfort zone, but also surprisingly wearable.

This is one of my favorite morning rituals – sitting outside in our small orchard and drinking a cup of tea.  Even though the dogs didn’t make in into any of today’s photos, they are always around 🙂  I think I set up a scavenger hunt for them before taking these photos (I hide treats all over they yard – they have to sniff them out – it’s keeps them quite occupied!).
