Outfit of the Day: Do-Gooder

January 31, 2020

And just like that, we have closed the books on our first month of 2020! January came and went so quickly, and yet I feel like most of those days were spent guessing what the weather was going to do. It’s been that weird mix of freezing nights and early mornings but midday sunshine and springtime vibes come afternoon. So not full-on winter coat worthy but not exactly thin cardigan ready. This fluffy jacket by Nike has been a Godsend — it’s versatile enough to keep me the right amount of warm, and stylish enough to elevate just about any look that I pull together as I’m rushing out the door.

“Trust in the Lord and do good …” Psalm 37:3

These days I’ve been keeping it classic with black-and-white outfits featuring a pop of color. This ensemble was built around my “do-gooder” shirt.

At the start of the New Year, my church began making a concerted effort to do good for 21 days straight in the same we we’ve done Daniel fasts. My pastor described being a do-gooder as carrying out “practical, tangible acts prompted by God but directed toward people.” Ultimately, the goal is to lead people to God by being his hands and feet, doing good deeds, meeting people’s needs, showing kindness and such. It sounds so obvious, right? Do good. Not because you want something in return, but because we honor God when we give freely. And dare I say, it’s quite alright to look good while you’re doing good 😉

Outfit of the Day: An Alleyway and a Magnificent Maxi Skirt

September 6, 2016

This Outfit of the Day features a magnificent maxi skirt handmade from yards upon yards of fabric that my pal Kelly bestowed upon me. For some reason the pattern makes me think of a partridge in a pear tree. In any event, this skirt is pretty boss and I predict it will be in heavy rotation this autumn. See the full summer-to-fall frock after the jump!

This Outfit of the Night is another from the many birthday celebrations I’ve enjoyed over the past couple of weeks. Birthday month! Woop woop!
