What Mum Wore: Gold Buttoned Dress

Fashion |Vintage| What Mum Wore

In the wake of Mother’s Day, I find myself thinking about all the things mum has handed down to me – faith, love, discipline, and … a number of now “vintage” clothes.


This beautiful collection of mum’s dresses, tops and culottes have been well kept, and I would like to show you some of mum’s style: vintage with a modern twist. 

I wore this gold buttoned dress on Mother’s Day. It was a little frosty, but the weather meant I could pair it with with some ankle-heighted brown boots ( those were a gift from hubby last year after I decoloured my favourite ankle boots by spraying them with shoe protector…). A panama ribboned hat topped off the look as I knocked on the door of my parents’ home. The look on mum’s face as she saw me in her old dress – gold.



The Lawyer – Morning Meets Work

THE LAWYER – Morning Meets Work   (Digital, 2016)

2016 The Lawyer - Morning Meets Work

The lawyer wakes each morning,
To illuminated light.
Over city, house and heart it warms,
Anticipates day’s sight.

She has a little breakfast,
Picks up her purse and keys,
Then lifting up her face to Christ,
She falls upon her knees.

The lawyer knows the Lord is light,
She knows that He transforms,
Determined, she will shine her light,
In the surges and in the storms.

The lawyer knows the God who saves,
And in Him, has no fear.
Because the lawyer knows His face,
And even now draws near.

The workplace and the city,
Await the daylight force.
But some will stand apart that day,
Powered by a different source.

The lawyer, she is one of them,
For justice she will fight.
For the lawyer wakes each morning’s work,
In Christ, the Saviour’s light.
