In the Shop: Edwardian Pieces & Watercolor Note Cards

I put up a load of new things in the shop today, several of which remind me of Beatrix Potter. Have any of you seen the film Miss Potter? It is one of my favorites (Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor are perfect) and this dotted Swiss blouse reminds me of several of Beatrix’s outfits. I love the Edwardian style of a long high-waisted skirt and airy cotton blouse.

I finally got around to getting some of my paintings printed as note cards. Reading Beatrix Potter’s books as a child (and an adult- who am I kidding?) inspired me to pick up a brush and dabble in water colors in the first place, so now that some of my paintings are printed, I can’t help but think of her.

  1. Beautiful blouse, and lovely painting! I love Miss Potter too, “When you taught me how to Dance” often get stuck in my head. 🙂

  2. Lauren,

    Your watercolor is beautiful!! And I love the photo of you modeling the blouse. “Miss Potter” is such a sweet movie- one of my favorites!

    May you have a blessed day!

  3. So pretty! I’ll be heading over to your shop to look at those notecards.

    I love Edwardian-style clothing, I just have a hard time implementing that style in my daily wardrobe. This outfit looks like a great way to wear Edwardian in everyday life.

    1. Thank you Grace!
      I agree that Edwardian styling can be hard to incorporate into modern style. I took a bit of inspiration from the 1970s with this look actually! Young people used to collect antique blouses etc. and wear them as light top layers. Here I just paired the blouse with a chiffon maxi skirt. 🙂
      Have a lovely day, and thanks for stopping by!
      -Lauren
