You Wear a Jacket

It seems that whenever I can't come up with a good name for a post title, I just grab a quote from Sherlock or Sherlock Holmes. Lol!

So, Sunday my whole family drove down to stay a couple days with my grandparents so we could attend a rally at the state capitol. I don't really want to get into politics here, but basically the state government is trying to make it way harder for home schoolers to home school, and we home schoolers are fighting back! There was an estimated 4,000 home schoolers at the capital that day.

So, for the rally I wanted to wear something really comfortable, and really chic - so my Blooming Brush Strokes dress was an obvious choice, of course!

I borrowed the hair wreath from my cousin, Molly. I was really inspired to wear one after I saw this post by Rebecca of The Clothes Horse - though mine is significantly smaller.

We had time to kill while we waited for the bus to take us home, so I amused myself in the same was as I always do: by taking self portraits - of my feet. LOL.

And then some close up shots of the pretty hair wreath:
(my hair did not look this perfect - I actually hadn't done anything with it that morning because I didn't have time. Aren't cameras fun??)

And I'll leave you with a picture of the capitol building:
