Hey! It’s so good to be home and back in my own bed, with my own dust, all my clothes, and my chores. 😀 Also awesome to be back with my church family. I’m thankful for the ability to listen to my pastor’s sermons on my phone via podcasts– I’ve listened to last week’s sermon 4 times! It was that good. My favorite quote was the opening line:
the ladder of life only to find when they get to the top that the ladder
is leaning against the wrong wall.”
So, last night when I tried on my outfit, I was frustrated. This shirt is not tight in the least bit, but no matter what I did, it laid funny across my chest and had those lines that are generally associated with tight shirts. It was just the cut/fabric weight combination I think. So, I thought, well, it’s not tight, it’s just the fabric thickness. And how do you help that? Interfacing! Seriously, I chopped a big ol’ square of it and slapped it with the iron onto the inside of my shirt and voila! No lines. I jumped up and down, because I wasn’t going to be able to wear the shirt with those lines, and now I can! 😀
So, what makes this outfit work? The neck of the t-shirt keeps it stylishly simple, and paired with the dressy skirt it’s totally fine for church. The belt helps keep the outfit from looking like a “black hole” as my sister calls it. 😀 The belt and the hat also match for an easy ensemble of accessories. Dainty gold necklace offsets and brings class to the chunky belt and textured hat. 🙂 No earrings for simplicity’s sake, but extra eyeliner since these hats can often shadow your eyes. 😀
How have y’all been? What’s your favorite metaphor (shortish ;)) of all time?
