Fact: shopping is a huge weakness of mine. Today, however, I am proud to say that every item in this outfit is over two years old! The scarf and sweater are from my high school days, and I bought the striped oxford six years ago during my freshman year of college.
Usually, I like wearing dresses and skirts to Mass, but on weeks like this when we help out with or speak to the youth group afterwards, I tend to go a little more casual, just for relatability's sake. Clothes aren't everything, of course, but I do think that your appearance can be a huge part of meeting people where they are. That's part of what I love about this linkup--fashion, when approached with virtue, can be a great way to evangelize, don't you think?

By the way, I always mean to include my accessories in these posts, and then I forget. I love statement necklaces and stacking my bracelets, but most days, I tend to wear the same few items. For the sake of completeness, though, here's my typical daily collection:
My Miraculous Medal was given to me and blessed on a pilgrimage to the Shrine of the Miraculous Medal in Philadelphia. Andrew and I wear the same rosary bracelets, and the monogram bangle was my first anniversary present. I've worn the same watch since I was 15, and to me, pearl earrings, the bigger the better, are the perfect way to top off just about any outfit. I'd love to hear about your special pieces, too, so please do leave a comment and share! Happy Sunday!
