     I'm big on dressing up for church on Sundays. I usually wear a pretty dress or skirt to church, and I only wear dress pants if the weather is bad. I feel personally like church is such a special time of week and dressing nicely is a way to show respect to God and to the act of going to church itself.
     This was my church outfit today! My dress is actually a hand-me-down from my mom. We're pretty similar clothing sizes and she gave it to me last year. I'm not quite sure where it came from (my guess is Macy's or TJ Maxx) but I love it! The fabric is stretchy so it's very comfortable to wear. It is a little low-cut so I put a tank-top from Wet Seal underneath it.
     I chose to accessorize with the colors black and white. My shoes are from DSW and are like a wedge/heel combo and are quite comfortable to wear! I've used this black cardigan in past fashion posts, and the newest item that I'm wearing is my flower headband from Charming Charlie. I opted for fake pearls for my earrings and necklace- always classy. :-)
     Since my other accessories were on the simpler side I wanted to go blingy with my bracelet and ring. Altogether I think that it makes a pretty bright Sunday best outfit! Haha. And a big shout-out to one of my awesome suitemates for taking these fun pictures! Isn't the lighting awesome?
     This is what my natural hair looks like y'all. I straightened it last night. I permed my hair in September shortly after I started this blog, so almost all of my pictures here have shown me with wavy or curly hair. For the first 17 years of my life I had pin straight hair. I love having permed hair now but every now and then I miss my natural look.
     Last but not least, sorry for the awkward picture of my eye but I wanted to show y'all my cool teal eyeliner. I get very bored with doing the same eye make-up everyday so I like to mix things up! This teal color is one of my favorites! It's by Almay which is found at all drugstores. Their make-up is hypoallergenic and since I have sensitive skin I have a bunch of their products.

     What do y'all like to wear to church? Do you go casual or dressy or somewhere in between?

  1. That's super cute! I love the cardigan with the dress! I have a new dress that I want to wear to church sometime, but I play in the church band, so I prefer to wear pants instead of a skirt or dress when I'm playing since I'm on the floor getting out my bass or leaning over wrapping cords :)
    Thanks for your comment on my blog!
