On Friday morning of the 1865 Welbourne immersion event in Middleburg, VA we were all excited to take a walk out to the pasture to visit the horses. Taking country walks and enjoying the fall leaves is one of my favorite pastimes at this event. This year I wore my lightweight blue wool dress once again with my orange silk bonnet and original parasol and paisley shawl. Below are a few pictures from the morning.
My mother purchased this silk bonnet on eBay and trimmed it with beautiful antique ribbon. Once she was finished I realized that I had some velvet in my stash that would match the ribbon perfectly so she made herself a new paletot from it.
