Walking in Style
"It's not going to rain." ~Marianne Dashwood, Sense and Sensibility

At least in our case, that is quite true. It did not rain and was a beautiful day.
Shall we take a turn through the gardens.
Such lovely colors.
And the fresh air.
I think I need a rest.
What luck! A seat for you.
I bring a branch.
So green and lovely.
It is your turn to rest.
Oh, this is a nice chair.
I'll fan you with the branch. (giggles)
We should go back.
Yes, the others will worry.
It's fun to dress in period dress from time to time.
A lot of people will mention they were born in the wrong time or wished they were. It is an interesting thought.
Yes, then we get a 99 degree, super humid, real feel of 105+ day and I think of being able to slip on shorts and a tank top or a bathing suit and running through the sprinkler to cool off. Couldn't do that before the 1930s. Before then "bathing costumes" were wool and had long skirts.The other points that keep me solidly in this era: showers, shampoo, and flushing toilets.
Don't forget electric lights! (laughing)
Is there a style era you like? What is it: Edwardian, Georgian, Victorian, Regency, flapper, revolutionary, modern, etc.?
What's your favorite photo from our stroll?
