National Sisters Day With the Dashwood Sisters

I am celebrating National Sisters Day in bookish style with two Jane Austen outfits inspired by two of my favorite fictional sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood from Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. I wanted to create looks that captured Elinor’s good sense and practicality and Marianne’s romantic sensibilities but still reflected how well these two sisters compliment and complete each other. I started with a matching pair of Sense and Sensibility bangle bracelets from the C. S. Literary Jewelry Etsy shop and based the color scheme for each outfit on the sweet blue and white cameo charms found in each bracelet.
