Modest Monday

Yesterday was a bit crazy getting out of the house in time for church.  The plan was to leave 15 minutes earlier than we usually try to leave by (because I had to rehearse a special music piece).  Well, we didn't get out the door at 8:30, but we did get out by 8:45 (this is our normal "aim-for" time, but more often than not we're rolling out of the driveway not a minute before 9).  And I was there with plenty of time to spare, so it was all good.  Pictures got short shrift though, so you get a picture that includes some "extra girls" - my two little ones, Cecily and Elinor.  I first of all have to rave about this skirt.  I love it.  I put it on and instantly feel "fancy".  The top is unusual for me - I don't often wear short sleeves without a cardigan but I don't really care to have things flying around while I'm playing the violin and I needed to wear something green so that I could wear my mom's emerald ring in honor her (yesterday was her birthday - the first without her, but that's a whole other blogpost). 

Green and Tan Floral Knit Top with pretty cowl neckline: Velvet via a Resale Shop ($.25)
Khaki Twill Skirt with Ruching: Deborah and Co (@$45 on sale)
Slip:  Vintage Cotton Slip from eBay (@$15)
Shoes: 10+ years old brown Mary Jane style pumps with medium heel (no idea any more)
