Church Lady: Monochrome with Classic Looking Sweater

I really AM smiling! I promise.
With the weather being sp unpredictable but mostly hot, I wanted to wear a skirt with a cool fabric.

At the last minute I found this pink shirt to wear and wondered if it would work. Saw this sweater while I was looking for a different one & voila!

You've seen these strappy sandals before and this vintage handbag.

The sweater looks like a vintage style though it isn't. My hair was being remarkably good so I didn't mess with it. Isn't that what always happens right before your appointment with the stylist? Ha!
Yah, rainboots and my jar of lemon water. 
I can't say this was the most figure flattering but it worked and was super comfortable.

I accessorized with brown beaded earrings and a brown bracelet my oldest brought me from the Phillipines. They worked with the sandals and the tan of the bag and sweater. The sweater is perfect for summer with those breezy holes.

The greatest thing about this skirt is the pockets. I need to make more skirts with pockets. (I didn't make this one, it was a hand-me-down from a was the sweater I think too.)

It was warm morning of dancing and church. A couple relatives of very dear friends of ours were in town and paid a visit. I felt like they brought the spirit of my friends with them. I still miss them so much, I can't even believe it. Sigh. I think I need to plan another road trip. The ktbunch has been asking for longer than I'd like to admit. I want to make that more of a priority.

Anyway, I liked the look over all. I think the boxy shape of the sweater would do better with a more streamlined or fitted skirt. It worked for today though. It was a good compromise. Have you ever made a fashion compromise?
