Hannah had asked for me to get outfit pictures yesterday, so as I scanned my wardrobe (that isn’t very big), I grabbed the outfit below, since I knew it hadn’t been featured on RF yet. Later I realized that I’d picked a green blouse, which made me laugh in light of the post I’d shared two weeks ago about Ruthie’s outfit!
Anyway … I do have to apologize for the bad lighting … I am not a photographer, so I don’t understand the whole lighting thing! We got outside after the sun sunk below the hill (it’s cooler that way!) and Abigail told me the lighting wasn’t the best … but I felt sure it would be okay! Well, she was right! The pictures are okay, but the lighting is not 100% accurate … mainly with my blouse … in real life it is a deeper, brighter, fresh green color.
When I saw this blouse at the store, I wondered whether I should get it because I don’t normally wear green (I think I only have one other green shirt)! I liked the green & white polka dots though, so I decided to try it and only paid a dollar or two for it (it’s hard to turn down a new outfit experiment for such a cheap price!). Abigail gave me this skirt awhile back and it is so comfy! It is my “go-to” denim skirt … so durable and yet stylish. I think she got it at the thrift store for a couple dollars.
My sandals are Clarks … I got them off Amazon two years ago. They cost $50 (including shipping), but I got them for $40 because I used two $5 dollar Swagbucks Amazon cards! I love these sandals, they are so comfortable and SO lightweight. I wore them throughout our remodeling and moving experience last year, and they are still in GREAT condition! Sadly, Amazon does not have this particular design for sale any more, but here are two other listings that are the same style: Leisa Daisy Sandals and Leisa Apple Sandals. If you need a pair of durable, but classy and comfortable sandals that will last you years … I highly recommend these!
I am still not sure if green is my color so I enjoy pairing it with this fruity burnt berry color … but Lydia strongly objects that these colors don’t go together :/ Oh well, you can’t please everyone, right?! 😉 Seriously, this blouse has become one of my regular casual, run-to-town tops!
My headcovering came from Hannah’s Headcoverings. Sadly this color is no longer in stock … and I’ll admit, it’s my fault … I bought the last two because I LOVED the color so much! We’ll have to see if we can get some more next time we’re in Israel!
Lately I have been braiding my hair and putting it up with Lilla Rose U-pins. These particular ones are the Tiara style. I had tried u-pins a couple years ago, but the pair we had were too big, so I never tried them again. Recently though, I decided to try them again because we had a smaller pair! I loved them! But, I will have to say, I have not yet mastered the technique of putting them in correctly all the time … sometimes it takes a couple tries before I’m satisfied and they feel comfortable. But hey, they are worth the couple tries! They hold my bun in snugly and comfortably.
So, I personally go in spurts … sometimes I like wearing earrings everyday or pretty often, and other times, I will go weeks or months without wearing any! That is kinda how it has been lately, but yesterday I felt like wearing some so I pulled these out of my jewelry box – I have had them for years! I bought them from HFE Jewelry on Etsy.
Well, that is all for now! I hope you have enjoyed. Have a blessed weekend.
