Sunday Fashion and Food for the Soul

Just dropping in to share the outfit I wore to church today. When I bought this skirt I just loved the colours and didn't even try it on, so when I realised how tight it was I hitched it up to wear as a dress! Works for me, and is still long enough to be modest.



Dress - Cotton On
Top - Target
Cardi -  Valley Girl


My inspiration for today's outfit is mainly Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde (excuse the gun, lol!) I even have the beret, but I don't have the confidence to wear it yet.


I'm linking up with some other fashion bloggers to see what they are wearing:



Don't get me wrong - going to church isn't just about what I'm wearing!
We have a great time at church. We drifted back and forth from the church for a few years, but now we are back proper, and loving it! I feel very safe there. I feel that everyone is on the same page. 

And I have a greater understanding now, of the reason for attending each week: to renew our baptismal covenants and to repent of the 'sins' we have committed through the week. (By sins I mean any big stuff, but even the little things like judging people, cross words, bad language etc.) Because of Christ's Atonement - when he suffered for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemene - we are able to take the sacrament, and repent of our sins each week. We are forgiven for those sins, and the burden of them is released from us so we have a clean slate. Every week! How blessed, to not have a trail of bad thoughts and deeds trailing behind us wherever we go. 

To start each week with a clear conscious and a happy countenance gives us the energy and the will to spread that love and happiness amongst others, and to help make the world a better place!

May you have an awesome week!

  2. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my
    own blog soon but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
