21st Century Church Ladies

Gone are the days of wearing boring, monochrome suits to church…at least for us. A little pop of color, a whole lot of sequins, a bow tie, and ruby woo lipstick came together well in our respective outfits.

Reese, why are you always making me laugh right in the middle of a photo?

The plum shoes + floral tights + black coat complimented the sequins perfectly. If you’re wearing something like a sequin top, toning down in other areas can make the sequins pop.

The cut of the coat is simple, but this collar gives it so much pizazz! Small details like this make this church lady stand out from the crowd.

It’s all about the red lip for Reese. Often times when she wears bowties, she soften up in other areas…such as lipstick or the old school clip on white earrings she’s wearing.

Cardigans are a good option when it’s too cold to simply wear a jacket and it’s too warm to layer a coat over a jacket.

All smiles after a great worship service.

This week, put that boring suit back in the closet and reach for something you would have never thought to wear in  the past. Who knows? Somebody might be waiting to say, “OMG! I love your style!”

Until next time,

R&R
