Thanksgiving Sunday

I'm a few days behind on outfit posts. Whoops.

My morning outfitting hasn't been all that successful lately. It has been taking me way too long to get fully dressed. I wore these tights and shoes with a bra around the house Sunday morning until it was nearly time to walk out the door. The necklace and hat were a last-ditch effort to look somewhat pulled-together. Other than a wrinkled skirt, I think it was a decent attempt.

I reconstructed this $2 necklace from Walmart. I really just liked the beads when I purchased it, even though the necklace was a dumb design. I never wore it. Then one day I just got fed up and crafty and decided to make it better. It's far from perfect, but again...decent attempt.

My new, flat t-straps passed the test. Initially, there was some rubbing, but I'm happy to report that after only a day of breaking-in, they are definitely keepers.

Overall, this was a good outfit for Thanksgiving Sunday. It's the one Sunday a year that regular seating is removed from our church sanctuary, replaced with dining tables, and everyone is invited to partake in a huge, Thanksgiving feast as one big family. This year was a great success! There was food a-plenty! Choir members were responsible for making sure the buffet tables were supplied at all times. Good thing I wasn't doing all that running around in heels!

After my Sunday afternoon nap during the football game, Steve and I went to The Library studio in Minneapolis to assist in the tracking process of the choir's Christmas album. Well, Steve went to help, I went to listen and chill. Check out Girly Muse for more info. and pictures!

I've had the privilege of observing the making of a few great albums including that of Sara Groves and Jason Gray...two of my very favorite artists. But it's even more special when it's my people. I just love that very soon, our fans will be able to take our Christmas music home with them, play it in their cars, share it with their friends. It's our portable ministry. I know I'm bias, but even 8 years after our last recording Washed, I still hear it and think, Dang. This is good music.

Brag much? You bet.

The hat really makes it work!

I tried to weigh in on your last post (denim, black, and bright scarf/accessory combo has my vote), but I got error messages both times that I tried.

I love your necklace! I just ordered a pair of very similar shoes from Urban, and I just cannot wait for them to arrive!

i think it's super pretty! and i totally have this problem in the morning, too. once i get into a panic about what to wear, it's pretty much hopeless. i'll be twenty minutes late and end up wearing some sack to school.
but you: you look lovely!
