Fun Things Friday

Happy Good Friday! 

I thought I’d give you some updates on what I’ve been doing recently!
Let’s start with some music!

What I’m singing – Jesus Thank you.
Without Good Friday there would be no Easter!  We are saddened by Christ’s crucifixion, but yet it was His purpose in coming to earth.  He came to die.  Isn’t that sobering?  Wow.  How wonderful to have a Savior Who loved us so much that He would knowingly give His life so we could have a relationship with Him and live with Him forever in heaven.  Without it we would be lost in our sin!

Accessorize It!

Got a minute – literally?  Here’s a very short video showing how easy it is to be casual but still look like you’ve put some thought into what you’re wearing.  It’s a point I’ve brought up before – it’s all about adding accessories.  It doesn’t even have to be much.  If you’re wearing a plain tee shirt, adding a necklace that has a bright pop of color can bump up that outfit from just

“Ho-hum”

to

“That looks nice!!”

Here are a few more examples with the name of the game being…ACCESSORIZE. 

I’d encourage you to find a few necklaces you love with pops of color.  Just walk into a store with a good variety and whatever you find that you love, buy it!!  You will have lots to wear with it!

Refresh your casual outfits with some fun pieces!

What the Preacher’s Wife Wore – Early Spring 2018

It’s always kind of hard to know what to wear as the seasons are transitioning, isn’t it?  We had snow yesterday, but we have had some very warm temperatures in recent weeks, too.  You can go from needing a heavy coat in the morning to not needing one at all by supper!  So like last fall, the answer for me is layering.

What the Preacher’s Wife Wore

It can be hard to know how to dress when the seasons are in transition.  Has anyone else struggled with these fluctuating temps?  I’ve had to learn to layer pieces together so I don’t have to completely change outfits in the middle of the day.

I’ve found it helpful to keep some of the lighter pieces I’d wear in the summertime out to wear with warmer sweaters or jackets.  Short sleeves or sleeveless tops/dresses under a heavier layer is perfect when it’s not freezing cold yet!

Today I’m sharing a video few of the outfits that I’ve worn recently to keep cool/warm as the temperature changes hour by hour.

I love wearing  these light layers right now!  What do you enjoy wearing while the season is changing from summer to fall?

What the Preacher’s Wife Wore – Casual OOTD

I always cringe when I hit “publish” on these outfit posts.  I’d rather hide behind my computer and write something, but I know that I like to see pictures with ideas for outfits, so today’s posts is a simple idea for an OOTD.

This outfit is an example of two things:

  1. Pattern mixing
  2. Layering

Pattern Mixing – This is a gentle mix with plaid pants and a blouse with a little polka dot.  It’s not too wild or “out there.”  It’s very doable, even if you’re not used to mixing patterns.

Layering – For cold mornings and warmer days, layering can really help you decide what to wear!  If you can remove a layer for the warmer temps later on, you won’t find yourself having to change your whole outfit during the day!

Tell me, do you feel comfortable mixing patterns?

Have fun and mix it up a little!
