I'm going to try something I've never done before - link up with Fine Linen and Purple for What I Wore  Sunday and then talk about fashion (which we sometimes do here at The Feminine Gift).  

Ever have one of those mornings where you just don't know what to wear and you end up changing at least once, but sometimes two or three times?  Well this morning was not one of those mornings.  I woke up and knew what I wanted to wear - and this was it!  My husband said I looked cute, and that he liked this outfit, and I remember the last time I wore it he said the exact same thing - so this one's a keeper.  

It's been extremely cold lately, like in the minus 30 to 40 Celsius range (for you Americans out there, that's like minus ten thousand degrees), and today was the first day in what seems like an eternity that the temp outside was only moderately chilly and it was SUNNY!!!  

So I was able to wear this outfit which is only moderately warm (and could take the picture outside without my nose freezing immediately and falling off my face).  Pretty much the entire outfit was thrifted or found or given and have weird brand names - so I have no idea where each piece actually came from - except the boots (which you can't see, which we tried to get in the picture) were bought new from some back-woods place and I have no idea what brand they are.  

But there you are.  I wore this to church this morning and felt great in it.  


  1. I love cranberries and grays in the winter. You look lovely!

  2. A beautiful outfit Sarah,and a wonderful way to positively comment on fashion.

    God bless,

  3. You do look lovely, and I'm very glad it was no longer minus ten thousand degrees so this picture could be taken with your nose intact.

  4. Your cardigan is awesome! I'm sorry it is negative ten thousand degrees, that sounds just awful! Stay WARM! =)

  5. Hey thanks friends! I love a good pop of red in the shades-of-grey world of Canadian winters.

  6. I can't believe you did this. I saw you at mass and thought, Sarah should participate in WIWS. I am not joking.

  7. Lovely color combination my friend!! You look so smart and well put together. Beautiful!!

  8. Elena - that is so funny because I think that about you too! And Mary - thank you, very sweet of you to say.

  9. I loooove that cardigan- the color is just gorgeous! I had the same kind of morning. I knew everything I wanted to wear except for shoes- but that was pretty easy ;-)

  10. What a lovely outfit! I'm sorry it's so treacherously cold, but a stylish scarf and cardigan can make up for it.

  11. Cute outfit Sarah! While chatting outside after Mass bundled up in our down coats I didn't even so much as get a peek at it (except your boots). Maybe we need to sit over on your side of the church for some outfit inspiration!



What is a woman? What does it mean to be feminine? There is softness and hardness, compassion and ferocity. There is contentment and adventure, freedom and service. We're conundrums, especially to ourselves, but we all, in some way, possess beauty, creativity, intuition and love. We were made for love, and we are loved, cellulite and all. Here we aim to show every woman the richness and beauty of her own femininity and explore current issues relating to women in our world. We also wish to share our own experiences - exploring the joys and challenges of stay-at-home moms and single professionals and everyone in between. Welcome! So glad you're here!
