Winter has officially arrived but the longest night of the year has come and gone. We are past the winter solstice which occurred on December 21, 2018. The term solstice comes from the Latin word solstitium, meaning ‘the Sun stands still’. This is because on this day, the sun reaches its southern-most position as seen from the earth.
When I think about the days beginning to get longer again, it made me want to wear something light and mood lifting. This is a pale blush eyelet shift dress from TJ Maxx that I purchased on sale (of course) during late summer and didn’t have a chance to wear, so I am wearing it now to celebrate the promise of longer days ahead and new beginnings. The lacy shawl is worn in lieu of a necklace and adds some intricate detail.
The bottle of wine is 19 Crimes Hard Chardonnay and I love the label. Here is a close up of it. I did not really have any wine and it’s a prop from my 1920’s era posts (really didn’t have any in spite of my glassy eyes, ha!)I was also drawn to this cream colored blouse and paisley skirt. I do not own many belts and had to borrow this one from my younger son (yes, that’s right). But I think the color of the belt worked well with the skirt making this outfit seem more finished. Also, I have worn this vintage tassel pendant before. Here is a close up of the vintage pearl tassel pendant.
My skirt blends well with the wall here which was not intentional but I went with it.
I found this gorgeous dress on Pinterest.com and it’s called the “Winter Solstice Dress.” It’s breathtakingly beautiful in both its detail and simplicity. What do you think?
I hope everyone is enjoying this time of year with family and friends and thank you for visiting my blog.
