Pleasant Valley Sunday

 When: February 27, 2011

Sweater: Cynthia Rowley from TJ Maxx
Dress: Target
Shoes: Ugg from Nordstrom
Tights: Forever 21
Necklace: A gift from Paul

Where: To church

Why: I'm not a believer in the "wearing jeans to church is OK" theory. I wouldn't necessarily call this my "Sunday best," but church is special and I want to look nice. So here you go. I haven't been to church in awhile (a long while), it's something I've fallen out of the habit of, but I'm trying to get back into it now that I've found some friends that are of the same faith as me. And I'm finally at the age that I can appreciate the service, instead of doodling in the songbook. 

It was interesting, today's mass was about worrying and giving up anxiety. This week my goal is to worry less by focusing on what is going on my life at that moment. We'll see how that goes. I'm also thinking of giving up shopping for lent. It seems like a brilliant idea, because it's something I really enjoy, but also very, very challenging. And what really constitutes shopping? Is it looking at things, or is shopping all in the purchase? If you have some idea, let me know. 

I'm looking forward to this coming week. On Tuesday I have an interview to be a campus tour guide for prospective students, so get ready to see an interview outfit! And Thursday is the fashion show. I bought some nude pumps this weekend that I'm planning on styling with a gold brocade skirt! I can't wait to show you all the fashion show piece too! Get ready for an awesome week, we're going to start it off right. 


  1. This is so pretty! Love the background.
    I need to work on worrying and reducing anxiety too :\
    I think shopping is all in the purchase. Just looking helps you think of ways to style pieces you already have! Unless being in the stores is too tempting ;)
    I'm following you now!

  2. Thank you! I was discussing this with my roommate, and we agree. It's all about the purchase. But her birthday is during lent, so I will have to get crafty!

    Thank you for being a follower! <3

  3. I loooove the cardi! I'm a sucker for flowers on anything though!
