Accessorize like Anne

One of my all-time favorite books is Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. I grew up reading the series and fell in love with the made for TV movies as well. Anne embodies everything in a woman which I admire. She is independent, headstrong, yet utterly romantic and spontaneous. I also adore her Victorian Country garb. I wish I could get away with her beautiful period costumes in my everyday life, but seeing as fashion trends are not leaning that way, I may just want to stick with some touches of Victorian here and there.

I've been eyeing some vintage straw boaters and have concluded that I need to possess one by springtime. This picture also makes me want to ride my bicycle.

Cameo brooches and granny boots add the perfect amounts of Victorian flair.
