Accessories and shoes are remixed
Shirt: Banana Republic
Shoes: Nine West
This is what I wore to volunteer on Friday, and I think the whole thing cost me about $30. The skirt was $7 on sale. I'd never ordered anything from Tulle before, but I'd heard decent reviews online. Besides, it's hard to pass up a $7 skirt.
I'm still not sure how I feel about the top with this skirt, but I really wanted to wear both these pieces, so I did. It's a little bohemian and also out of my comfort zone. Overall I'm feeling a little "Meh" about it.
Friday night we went out for dinner with some friends who recently came back from five months in Nepal.
All remixed except tank
Tank: Banana Republic
Shoes: Steve Madden
I've had this tank in my closet for three years, I think, and I've never worn it out. Why? Because I feel super exposed in it. And I did last night, but we were going out for the night, and B. convinced me it was a good look.
Y'all, we had the best. Meal. Ever. We went to Chifa, which I'd been wanting to try for a while. I saw it while we were on the mural tour for B.'s birthday, and I was like, "Chifa! I love comida chifa!" Chifa is a term for Peruvian Chinese food and it is DELICIOUS. This restaurant, however, is way more upscale than all the chifa places I've been to before. Also, um, Chef José Garces. Yeah, y'all: it's the second Iron Chef whose food I've tasted. I love my life!
Today, our former pastor (we went out with a church plant) got married.
Dress: J Crew
Shoes: Steve Madden
Bangle: gift from uncle
This is the dress that I wear to weddings, apparently. I love it because it's so comfortable and it's got pockets, but it's still fancy enough to dress up or down.
This is my fancy hair. I've talked about how I don't really straighten my hair, but every once in a while, I get the urge to do something different with it. Today was one of those days. Weddings are one time when I can get behind some heat styling. So I gave myself some waves.
And then I looked in the mirror and didn't recognize myself.
At least I'll have my real hair back soon enough.
