First, an enormous thank you for all your sweet comments and votes of support on the weardrobe contest--they made me hugely happy. Even though this outfit and location (not to mention the milkmaid braids) were totally over-the-top, they were such fun to put together and a welcome break from grading papers.
I have to give credit here to Christopher, who took the most beautiful photos. Last weekend, he scouted for good locations while we took a walk; and then on Saturday, he rushed out of the house with me after calculating the "golden hour" (the hour before sunset) where the light would be best for pictures. And then he spent hours on Sunday looking up the picture on weardrobe and reporting how many votes I had back to me with a glee normally reserved for NBA playoffs.
I guess the jury is still out on the contest winner, but I'll update later in the day when I know! Good thing I made a little wish on this dandelion...
