Two-fer Tuesday: Multi-colored Tank

I probably should make Target off-limits to myself.  Honestly, I cannot go into that store and walk away without buying something.  But, when that something is this super cute multi-colored tank that I got for $8 or so, I guess I shouldn’t beat myself up too much.

The first time I wore it was for a kid’s birthday party…I might have been overdressed, but then again, this is me.  I don’t get much more casual than this outfit, and my Holy Land sandals helped keep me more grounded.

1 - multi colored tank, green shortsI don’t think I’ve talked yet about this necklace (if I have, bear with me.  I repeat stories all the time, and I’m too lazy right now to go back and see what I’ve written).  Anyway, I was in Texas over the 4th of July for a photo shoot with my dear friend Julianne (aka the most creative person I’ve ever met in my life).  The shoot featured me as Cinderella – my cartoon idol.  It was really fun, and I bought this necklace at my new favorite store, Sam Moon, as a great $3 memento of the occasion.  Pictures to come soon!

The second outfit is one of those that didn’t photograph quite as well as it looked in real life.  I don’t know how/why that happens, but trust me – it was cute.

Technically, there is no actual turquoise in this blouse, but it has every other color, and blues and greens that are close, so to the casual observer (i.e., everyone), it works just fine.  Colors can be deceptive like that – it’s pretty easy to make people see what you want them to see, if you just wear it with confidence.

1 - multi colored tank, turquoise skirtOne thing I really like about this outfit is the layered heart necklaces.  I’ve not ever been able to do the layered necklace trend quite right, but this variation works (now that the trend is on its way out, but whatever…)

Church Lady

For the longest time when I moved to Georgia, I didn’t go to church.  I would watch my beloved Virginia Beach church on webcast, but actually going to a church building just didn’t happen.  It wasn’t that I didn’t want to go, per se…I just could never find something I liked as well as what I’d left behind.

Well, the past few weeks I’ve decided to bite the bullet and just go to the church I like okay…because some community worship is better than none at all.

One of the perks of this decision, though, is that I have an excuse to wear pretty clothes on Sunday morning.  I mean, these are clothes I could wear to work, but I don’t usually dress up this much for the office.  So it still feels special.

A couple weeks ago, I broke out my blue jumpsuit (you may recognize it from my patriotic Memorial Day post) and paired it with turquoise this time, instead of red and white.  Of course, no one would be deceived by my new shoes into thinking this is a totally different outfit.  But, it feels fresh to me when I can mix and match different shoes and accessories.

1 - blue jump suitSide note, I’m pretty proud of my hair in this picture.  I don’t know what I did or if I could ever do it again.  But it was on point that day!

I used to get in fights with my dad in middle school about wearing jeans to church.  Those days are obviously long gone, but the memories make me smile.  Do you still dress up for church, or is your church super casual and progressive with a jeans-wearing pastor?  What did you and your parents fight about you wearing when you were younger?
