Spring Week In Feminine Dress: Day Six

I can't believe the week is almost over!

Today I wore my panel skirt, a blouse from Belk and the same shoes and purse as yesterday. I spent the morning shopping with a friend and the afternoon (drum roll please) cleaning out my sewing closet.

Look! There's nothing on the floor!!!

- 1 1/2 teasp. baking powder

- 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk

- 1 1/2 cups whipping cream

Spring Week In Feminine Dress: Day Five

Afternoon all! We went out to the quilt store today and Mom took today's picture while we were there.
I think I was talking to someone when she took the picture.
My dress and flip-flops are from Target and my bag was a very exciting yard sale find.
I'm thinking of posting the recipe I used to make Mary Laurence's birthday cake a little later so I'll see you then!

Spring Week In Feminine Dress: Day One

Greetings to all! It's Week In Feminine Dress over at the Sense and Sensibility message forum and I am very excited to be able to participate this time! WIFD is a seasonal event where the participants try to really focus on dressing modestly and femininely both for their own enjoyment and for the encouragement of others. So, here is my outfit for today!
It was rather dreary outside today, cool and wet.
Skirt: Thrift Store
Top: Target (I think I could go completely broke at that store!)
Sweater: Consignment Sale
Shoes: TJMaxx
Hopefully I will see you tomorrow, I have to get new batteries for my camera.

Hint, Hint!

I received some linen samples in the mail yesterday.
Now I wonder what that could mean?
