Today's post is a little out of my comfort zone. A few sweet friends have asked me to write about my favorite clothes and where I shop, so I thought I would oblige and post an outfit every now and then. Honestly, this kinda makes me nervous because 1.) I am not a fashion blogger, nor do I claim to know anything about anything in the fashion world and 2.) I feel like there are WAY cooler people who could do a much better job than me at something like this. But I also understand where they are coming from -- I too love to see what people are wearing. It's fun! And it's nice to affirm how other women wear their clothes and see how they celebrate their own personal style.
For me, I simply buy what I think fits my style best and what is mom-friendly. Then I try (key word try) not to compare myself to other people, which is something I will forever be working on. In three words, I think my style is simple, practical, and comfortable. I like neutrals, but I'm a sucker for anything in a shade of blue or a vintage floral print. My celebrity style crushes are Emma Watson, Zooey Dechanel, Taylor Swift circa 2012, and Emma Stone. I shop mostly at Madewell (usually via places like Thred Up, eBay, or end-of-season sales), but also like pieces from Target, Loft, and Old Navy, while supporting ethical shops when I can. And I really love buying vintage dresses from Etsy.
Anyway, I'm titling this series as "what I wore Sunday" because Sundays are usually the for sure day of the week that I have a well thought-out outfit (mass day!). I also love seeing how other bloggers incorporate their Sunday best into their blogs, so without further ado....Here's my first look:
My shirt is an old one from Old Navy (from MIDDLE SCHOOL believe it or not...). The sweater is also old (cough cough high school) from Banana Republic. My skirt is from this UK store, which I bought last year on major sale when I was super pregnant with Pier. Here is a similar shirt, sweater, and skirt.
And because what I wear on my body is not as important as the state of my soul, I want to end on this verse from today's readings:
Endure your trials as “discipline”; God treats you as sons.
For what “son” is there whom his father does not discipline?
At the time, all discipline seems a cause not for joy but for pain,
yet later it brings the peaceful fruit of righteousness
to those who are trained by it. So strengthen your drooping hands and your weak knees.
Make straight paths for your feet, that what is lame may not be disjointed but healed.
Happy Sunday friends!
