Kanga skirt Outfit of the Day



Hi everyone! I am sorry for the utter lack of posts on this blog. I have been finding it hard to find time and inspiration for blogging. I thought I would post an outfit I wore yesterday as I thought it was fun and something different that others would enjoy seeing. Jennie Chancey from Sense and Sensibility patterns is living over seas in Africa and has been selling material called a kanga. Be sure to check out her eBay store often to see if she has any new pieces of material in stock. Each piece of fabric is unique and has a saying written on it in a particular African language. Each saying has a blessing or proverb or other message on it. Mine is a blessing, but I forget what it says. I will post that when I find the paper I wrote the translation onto.


My sister Bethany made my skirt for my birthday at the beginning of the month. You can check out her blog post about it here. My scarf was a gift from my mom for Easter and my top is the brand  Liz Claiborne from J C Penney. I love that store! My shoes were from a local shoe store I cannot remember the name of last summer. Sorry for not remembering. They are quite comfy and go with everything.


We are having brilliant spring weather lately here in the USA! I love the weather, but I could pass on the high pollen count. Anyone else dealing with seasonal allergies besides me? Are any of you doing anything special this weekend? My sister and I are going to watch Snow White and the Huntsman tonight to start it out. We have not seen it yet so I cannot say my thoughts on it. I am sure I will have a loads of things I don't like about it to say. Would any of be interested in movie reviews by me? I have thought about doing movie reviews and thought I myself would enjoy reading them. Let me know in the comments!


My family and I will also celebrate another work week done by going to the new burger joint in our town called Elevation Burger. I can't wait! Tomorrow we will be getting the house ready for a single ladies get together after church on Sunday my sister, mom and I have planned. We will have food and fellowship and watch a movie called Shadow lands about C.S. Lewis's life. I can't wait! Its going to be great having all the young women get together.

God bless!

omg I have been having the worst allergies!! I've never really had seasonal allergies before so dealing with it is quite an adjustment :P It sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned ahead!

Rebecca Ann said...

Yes I know I don't normally have such terrible allergies either. I pray we adjust and get better soon!

God bless!

Hey Rebecca! I haven't checked in with you in a while, so I thought I'd drop by and say hello ... how is everything going for you lately?

Your skirt is so pretty - I hope the weather has been nice in your area so you can wear it! :-)

Hope everything's going well for you!!

Lots of love,
Vicki

Thanks Rachel!

Vicki hello to you as well! Things have been going thats for sure. It seems time is flying by. I am done with exams and trying to prepare for more in the fall. To be honest I have been struggling. Its been so hard for me to manage my time well and use it for Gods glory. I also get frustrated because I am trying to get involved at my families new church. Its hard making new friends and getting involved, but God is good.

Yes I have been wearing this skirt 2-3 times a week with the warm weather now! Its so fun to wear.

How are you doing? You must be off from school for the summer right? I have been enjoying your blog posts! Its not annoying to gets lots of them each week.

God bless,
Rebecca

Hello, Rebecca!
I hope you are doing very, very well!
I miss your posts, and especially your videos. I just thought I'd tell you. :)
In Jesus,
Alison

Hi Alison,

Thank you so much for your sweet comment! To tell you the truth I have missed blogging, but I have been finding that the Lord has me setting my priorities else where right now. You may see some new posts in the future as time allows, but right now blogging has been on the back burner.

God bless you and thanks for the encouraging comment. :)
Rebecca

Alison said...

I certainly understand that! I too have times where the Lord leads me to prioritize my life and set some things aside. It shows wisdom that you are taking the time to step back and search out what God wants you to do with each day He gives you. :)

I would love any new posts you write, but please don't let me pressure you into posting! I just thought that if perhaps you were feeling discouraged about posting, I would let you know that I'd missed you. :)
