Flashback Summer:  Madeline Outfit

This outfit reminded me of the children's book/movie character, Madeline, a French orphan who has many adventures in Paris and the French countryside:

I LOVED Madeline as a child.  And by "as a child" I mean if I had a Madeline movie here I'd be watching it now.

WIth this outfit I did a little decade-mixing, but I'm pleased with the overall look.  It's a bit more 60s than I normally wear, but, hey, some days it's good to branch out!  (Not to mention I've yet to run across a 30s/40s straight hairstyle... rrrrrrrrrr.)

This sweater is a bit big for me, but I still like it.  It's a nicer quality sweater than most of my other ones, and I just like how it feels.  And I really like this leather blue jay pin my grandmother picked up for me; it's one of my only novelty brooches.

P.S. Don't forget to enter the Valentine's Day giveaway!  It closes Feb. 21st!
