Love the colours in your outfit - mustard is one of my favourite colours to wear! ♡ It looks lovely with your hair.

Wow, that's quite an accomplishment pulling all that history together into one outfit. I'll bet you had fun doing it!

It's hard to say which piece I like best...maybe the coat (that lace!) or the gloves.

I didn't know you and Mary were friends - very cool...
