Fashion Friday: Channeling Downton Abbey

Like many of you last Sunday night, we were glued to our televisions watching the first episode of the last season of Downton Abbey.  Having valiantly resisted the urge to download Season 6 illegally on our computers for a year, we stayed up beyond our usual weeknight bedtime (we do get up very early to get teenage boys off to school so please don’t judge!)  While we found the first episode a bit slow (they needed to wrap up lose ends with Anna and Mr. Bates and remind us of Mary’s wild week of romance), we so loved the Dowager’s one liners (“Does it ever get cold on the moral high ground?) and the fashions.  Even Mary showed up wearing last year’s Marsala (Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year) looking lovely.

Given this week brutal change in temperature, we’re dedicating this fashion post to hats and pins – and hope that the ladies of Downton Abbey would approve.
