This week, I went on a trip with my parents and best friend to a town that is artistic, touristy, and a home to fun shops and consignment stores. Of course, that means that we went shopping! One of my purchases was a brand new floral print summer dress (Yes, I do buy new clothing now and then, but it was on a superb sale of about $15. Also, the state we were in has no sales tax :D.)! The color scheme of the dress will make a great transition into autumn, and I think it will look cute with tights and boots. You will have to stay tuned to see what I do with it next. ;)
Today I wore the dress layered with a t-shirt and leggings, since it doesn't quite meet my modesty standards on its own. Later, I decided to put a chambray shirt over it to wear outside. The chambray shirt is also new, and this was actually the first time I wore it. My mom got it at Kohl's on sale, and we are now sharing it. Having seen similar shirts tied in the front, I wanted to give the look a spin. Although it adds warmth, it's in keeping with the casual, summery effect. I'm quite pleased with the outfit, and look forward to wearing it again!
"likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works." ~ 1 Timothy 2:9-10, ESV
