Yes I know what you all are thinking! What has she done now that does not correspond with the rules?!! How hard can it be to abide by the rules of the 30 day challenge!??
Well it was really hard this morning to be motivated to get out of my flannel pj's when the only options that were not in the laundry were that teal skirt I wore on day 11 that did not style well and a blue and white dot skirt, and wool cardigan that is drab and grey and a black top among some others that did not appeal to me. These were all in my challenge, but I wanted to wear the pink sweater and black top with a black skirt to pull together the outfit! I just had to try the thrifted wool skirt I bought last thursday! its lovely! I can tell you that because I was cozy in it all day!
Here is the result!
This outfit consists of-
Black full wool skirt- @2.25 thrifted
black tank- traded with my sister( we do this often, I give her an item of clothing and she gives me something, we are both total opposite body types and styles, but we tend to have clothing that will not work ourselves, but will on the other. So this is a fun and free way to get new cloths)
black flats(not pictures, I wore them yesterday)-$4.00 thrifted
pink cardigan(loft brand)- free from a friend(thank you Hannah! I miss you and your family so much!)
bracelet- walmart long ago! not sure how much it was, probably $5.00
cross necklace- gift from my dad when we visited the Vatican in Rome
black belt( new york and company brand!)- $2.00 thrifted
total $12.25, I believe thats even cheaper than most of my other outfits! woohoo! I love thrifted and free stuff. :)
Have a lovely rest of your evening ladies and gents! today was a great day! I was able to get in lots of studying, baked some cookies using Mia's recipe here-http://aspiring-homemaker.blogspot.com/, and I was able to practice piano and voice and watch a movie with my sister, as well as talk lots with her while Mom and dad went on their valentines date. A great day!
I was chewing on and pondering this verse today- " have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourselves for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present, as well as the life to come." -1 Timothy 4:7-8
Are you pursuing godliness or are you perusing irreverent and silly myths that are not worth pursuing because they are not godly! I realized that I was, instead of the Lord, I was following after a silly thing called worry. Worry is really a dangerous thing, because then we are doubting God's power when we say oh how will this ever become better, I can't do this! Praise God He is bigger than our worry!
