I Went to Church

No, I didn’t get religion. Beefy’s mom sings in a choir, so we attended mass on Christmas Eve.

Blazer, BSB Jeans (thrifted). Blouse, Charlotte Russe. Skirt, Ann Taylor (thrifted). Boots, Nine West. Purse and rings, vintage. Earrings, Julie’s Inspiration.

I was a little worried about what to wear to the church. It turns out that this was totally appropriate and even, maybe, a little over-dressed. There were folk in tshirts and jeans.

After church, we headed to Beefy's maternal grandmother's house for dinner and a gift exchange. I managed to drop something greasy on my suede skirt and score another box of Esther Price chocolates. A little baby powder fixed the former. For the latter, I prescribe plenty of swimming and running.

Church conservative without looking stodgy. Well done!

I love that jacket! I'm such a sucker for paisley. Glad your church outfit worked out!

You look great. And I too adore that blazer and the way your top complements the colors and print.

And go Esther Price! Dad gave me a box as well. I'll have to ration those out to keep from eating them all at once.

I love this earthy look. I too made a guest appearance at church Christmas Eve, in a mess of red, black, and gold sequins that raised more than a few elderly eyebrows. I enjoyed your comment about baby powder saving your skirt and swimming and running remedying the after-effects of the chocolate. Very clever as always! I hope you had a good holiday :)
