Re-Adjust

I just realized that it has been a month since my face has been on the blog......that has been way to long! Therefore, hello dear readers after such a long time!!! Since it has been awhile I guess I should fill you all in a bit. This semester is almost over and while I am both excited and relieved about that it means finals are coming up. On top of there being less than a month of classes left I also applied to be a Resident Adviser on campus and got the job which starts immediately, so RA duties and training will fill most of my free time. 
However, Thanksgiving is only a little over a week away and I am soooooooooo excited!!! Oh, and it is finally cold here in Texas which is fabulous:)
I thought that today I would bring you all something unique in a post. If you remember a post I did on my Fall Inspiration awhile back focusing on the fashions of Bletchley Circle here I decided to incorporate that into my ensemble for this post. I love everything that Emily wears in the series so I thought I would recreate one of my favorite looks of hers. I love how simple the look is with a cream shirt, silk scarf, and grey wool skirt with a jacket....simple and perfect. I must say that I am becoming a HUGE fan of wearing these scarves! While wearing these style of scarves might have seemed odd and old fashioned to me years ago, now that is exactly what I need and I adore how it transports me into a different day and age!
This is one of my favorite buildings on campus & apparently people carve their names in the brick when they graduate.
Skirt: Thrifted
Sweater: Thrifted
Scarf: Grandmothers
Trench: Forever21
Shoes: Target (old & broken)
Socks: Target
Purse: Thrifted
Earrings: Walmart
Lipstick: Rimmel London Provocalips (230 Kiss Fatal)
**Pictures by Me & Betty (my camera)**

Have you ever had this perfect idea and everything just didn't work out how you had planned? While we have all had many instances like this throughout life, yesterday was a good example of this for me. I had this perfect idea in my head of what kind of pictures I wanted to take and how I wanted them to look and then when I started taking pictures nothing turned out how I wanted. I realized it is the same way in life (as I have been learning).....sometimes we just have to re-adjust our focus and realize that not everything is perfect. We might have ideas and dreams, and while they might seem perfect to us, they might not always be what is best or meant to be in that present moment. Sometimes we have to step back and view life from a new perspective and setting. 
So there is a little photography example for you! Just a side note, I think I really need to invest in a hand held remote for my camera that way I can take better self portraits:) 

Well dear readers, I must bid you adieu for now and hope that you are enjoying the cool weather and anticipating Thanksgiving!

What do you think about my take on Emily's look?

Have you ever had to re-adjust your focus?

Do you use a hand held remote to take pictures?

  3. Beautiful outfit, Madison! :D The pictures look great and I wouldn't have known that the pictures didn't turn out as you had imagined, but it's good that you learned from this incident. :)
    What a pretty scarf! Scarves are the best.

  5. I really want to start watching that show!!! My mom and I would love it! Speaking of love it, I love your outfit! I've been searching for the perfect silk scarf/handkerchief for a while now, and I love yours!

    Your wise words on re-adjusting are wonderful! I did a whole blog post using the analogy of blurry photos not too long ago!

  7. You have recreated this look so perfectly, and the scarf is so pretty. I have quite a few scarfs like this but struggle on how to style them, mostly I just tie them round the handles on my bag.
