What I Wore Wednsday {Week 1}

       My good friend Lauren, over at Enjoying The Journey introduced me to this great blog Biblical Homemaking.  I love this blog and have been stalking it quite a bit recently.  I quickly noticed that once a week (on Wednesdays) she has a What I Wore post.  It honestly isn't something that greatly interests  me, until I found her post on Why she posts what she wore. {And I really like that it is a whole group of blogging ladies who do this weekly segment on what we wore. Check out the Pleated Poppy What I Wore Wednesdays for the background of the idea.}

       Proverbs 31 has always been a favorite verse of mine and is very much the life I would like to emulate. I usually don't care much about the clothes I wear, or the brands they are. However, Proverbs 31 says that She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet. v. 21. Of course I have clothes to protect our bodies (the snow part) but the scarlet part is what gets me. Obviously God is not suggesting that I wander around in crimson clothes all the time.  It is an indication of wealth and value (but don't forget being a good steward of the family's money as discussed throughout Proverbs 31).  Scarlet clothes = good quality fabrics.

       I still don't put clothing high on my priority list, but I think it's a great motivator for me to remember to dress nicely and look my best often.  If for no other reason than for myself, because after all, when I look nice - it helps me feel just a little bit better for the day.


 (I'm going to have to work on getting better pictures like what the other ladies who post manage to take weekly....)

       The dress came from Target, it was on sale (I almost never buy clothes that aren't on sale) for roughly $11.  A gold butterfly necklace that was my mothers and a pair of black sandles/flats that I got at Dots for $5. My hair was pulled back into a $1 Target clip. A $17 outfit!

My favorite part about it all, check out the pockets! : )

 Again with the bad picture taking...
I got this shirt a few years ago at walmart, totally worth the $5 I spent on it! The skirt is Ann Taylor that I got at a second hand store (Plato's Closet) with the tags still on it for $7!!
Shoes were white sandles for $6 at Dots.

For a new concept, I'm fairly happy with how it all went. I also took the time to clean out my closet this week (marking off #27 on my 101 list) cleaning out all the stuff that I'll A)never wear again and B)never fit again made me realize that I honest to goodness do not own enough clothes (an idea I was beginning to understand a couple of weeks ago).  Looks like a series of thrifting adventures are in store! : )
