Colorblocking Challenge








I wore this to church two weeks ago but decided to hold off posting it for a challenge held by  Flor de María Fashion and Nany’s Klozet. It’s inspired by "Bloggers do it Better" but with their our own twist to it.

I had no idea this challenge was coming up but after wearing this pleated skirt (that I just so happen to love) I decided to participate. I put a lot of thought into what I wear to church. I've discussed this before so I won’t go into a rant. I do want to say that it is important to be able to dress for a variety of settings and occasions and you don't need a lot of money to do so. I thrift and use coupons when shopping. Blogging and magazines have helped me learn to mix and match things I already own. Staples are a must such as a good blazer or two, pencil skirts, a blouse and a great pair of heels and flats if you like them.


Challenging myself is why my style may appear inconsistent. What I wear on a dinner date may not be appropriate for church (length), skinny jeans for the weekend aren’t a good idea for a day in my classroom with 13 year old boys with hormones raging and the look here isn’t what I’d wear out dancing with my besties. I enjoy getting ideas from others and magazines and even just styling what I like. At the end of the day some trends are forever and others well they are here today gone tomorrow.





Thanks to Flor for inviting me to be a part of the challenge via Twitter.

Simply beautiful! Very tasteful and not overdone. I luv the look of the pleats-- they flow and flatter your frame very well... I personally have a hard time with them!

Very stylish!

I love the skirt but I think it would look so much nicer sance the sweater. : ) Keep doing what you do. : ) I'm working on my website over the summer which will include daily devotionals, general life advice, fashion, articles on faith,etc. I'm really excited! It's geared for young ladies in their 20's because it's such a weird portion of life.
