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.
