"Oh Mr. Darcy!"

I recently re-watched the 2005 film version of "Pride and Prejudice", and was in awe at just how beautiful that movie is. The cinematography, the locations, the music, the costumes, and of course the dashing and mysterious Mr. Darcy. *le sigh*....

Today's ensemble was inspired by the color palette of the movie. The colors of the females in the film are very muted, and  refer back to the English countryside. Less intense colors, simpler and more rustic fabric textures. However, when the sisters are in town or in London the colors and costumes are more vibrant.

I went for a natural-toned palette with a wooden-carved headband, hair up in a cream ribbon, basic lace up ballet flats, and a leather bound journal to complete the look.
