The weather unexpectedly cooled down this weekend – not to the point of needing a jacket, but it was definitely breezy enough to require some light layers. As I spent time in my closet debating what to wear to church yesterday, I stumbled upon this blouse-over-dress combination. And I couldn’t resist adding my new metal necklace, which created a layered collar effect & further emphasizes the buttoned-up, demure look.

That collar is so cool! And I can tell those shoes are going to get so much use, they are so fun!

You look so classy! I don't wear dresses or skirts to church anymore since I have to man handle my 2 little boys. Your kiddos must be well-behaved in church! My 3 year old ripped one of my favorite shirts. It gets pretty wild….
