I try not to wear denim to church, because usually it’s too casual. But, I made a dark denim skirt yesterday and really wanted to wear it today, so I dressed it up.
Ruffled fancy t-shirt: Kohls… If I recall correctly
Skirt: Made by me
Boots: Shoe Carnival
Scarf/headcovering: Handmedown (I moved it from a headscarf/bandthing to a ponytail bow after the worship service)
What dressed the denim up? Well, first of all, it helped that the skirt is pretty simple, has a fitted, slimming waistband, and is floor-length and dark colored. The ruffled neckline gives a fancy edge. The black jacket gives warmth and another layer of “I thought about my outfit this morning”, and the bracelet and earrings match the skirt buttons and give some glamor. 😀 My boots were 3″ heels, so that helped with my posture. 😀
I had so much fun making this skirt! I’ve never done buttonholes or a fly before, and both actually turned out! 😀
How do y’all feel about denim at church? Do you try to dress it up? Do you just not wear it? Do you think it’s okay?
