Sunday Best: v.9

Happy Sunday everyone! I am off in travel mode again so it's amazing that I even have this post scheduled. Things will slow down for a short bit once I return later today from a wedding shower in New York. (Did you hear about the awesome bridal shower game printable I shared with everyone? Better go download it!) In the meantime, I would love to hear more of what YOU are up to. Sometimes I wish I could gather everyone and meet in real life and just talk and eat and enjoy each other's company. The real deal. I've formed so many amazing connections through this blogging adventure and I consider so many of you to be true friends. Maybe one of these days I'll make it to a blog conference. Will you join me?

Seeing as I can still play the "I've been traveling and can't take pictures" card, I don't have a new outfit to show you for today, but that doesn't mean I can't share some definite Sunday Best outfits! If you've been around since The Modern Austen's inception, you might remember a few little outfit series I put together, starting with Disney Princess Inspired Outfit Series and then I went into a Downton Abbey Inspired Outfit Series. It was actually such fun gaining inspiration from some of my favorite things and translating them into outfits. Sara from Sincerely, Sara does an amazing job with this on a regular basis!

Anyway, it got me playing around on Polyvore again (my profile was SO outdated, I couldn't believe it.) and I decided to create a set that captures one of the big things I am into these days: swing dancing. I put together a fun night/day pairing of things I would actually wear out to dance. It was fun and it got me thinking about what I might wear next time I go . . .

I just love paying homage to the retro/vintage side of swing every time I go with at least one small element: circle skirts, polka dots, color schemes, jewelry, etc. It's a fun way to play up my wardrobe without going full-on vintage--though I am sure that will happen down the road!

If you want to give Polyvore a try, definitely link it up to Sunday Best! We'd love to see it in addition to your regular looks. The link party is open all week!

The lovely Jen from Librarian for Life and Style was our most clicked-on participant from last week's Sunday Best! Check her out and make sure to say hello!
