You thought I was going to put Monday, right? I TOTALLY GOTCHU.

This was taken on Sunday if you didn't get it yet. But it was good - thanks for asking. We had stake conference this past weekend and my visiting teaching companion and I visited with three sisters on our list! ..one of whom is Kari!! I think her contributions to my blog count as VT...

Also, I did a crownbraid again but I did it further away from my hairline and the nape of my neck and I think I look less like a man this way.

I'm wearing a Forever 21 gold flower necklace ($8), Anthropologie gold bib necklace (free with gift cards), H&M white shirt ($10), Tulle teal skirt (c/o Tulle), and JCPenney berry heels (free with gift cards) with an MNG by Mango black bag (free with gift cards).

    And I don't know how you post your outfit everyday, so rock on for being a day late and a dollar short, rock on.

  4. I love this skirt, I'm loving pencil skirts right now. BUT I can't seem to find any! So at least you're able to rock one for me! :)

  18. AHhhhh Elaine. you never cease to look amazing. I want that skirt SO BAD. You know, if you ever decide to throw it away, you know who wants it (that's me, if you didn't get the hint)

    I'm so jealous of your braiding skillz. I suck at braiding my own hair.

  52. Less like a man??? LOL, you've never looked anything close to manish. That's silly!
    That's a nice outfit for the conference and VT. You really had a full Sunday.

    I'm having another herro hachi giveaway. I know you're not big on printed t-shirts, but one winner gets to select anything from Kym's site. And if you were one of the other winners, maybe you would end up with something for Chase. But this isn't a sales pitch to pressure you, just wanted to let you know. =)

  55. Epic braid envy - you look brilliant! :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love. All of it. Sleeves that length are my favorite. And that skirt? Uh, adorable. I love the buttons on either side. I heard a rumor they might be putting an H&M in our City Creek mall that will be done next year. Please, oh please. I miss that store so much! Fingers crossed. But if not, I'll have to continue going to CA to buy!

  58. That's a great skirt! I recently bought a vintage one quite similar (which will have to wait until Fall to be worn, alas). I do like your hair like this. Though I don't think anything could make you look like a man!

  65. I am so stealing this color combo - I just bought a teal pencil skirt last weekend! You are so cute I can hardly stand it.

    ReplyDelete
  66. You are just too cute! I love your teal skirt and shoes and hair.

    ReplyDelete
  67. This skirt is fantabulous! Such a rich color!

    I'm telling you, you must have mad hands because I usually French and Dutch braid my own hair but I still can't do the crown braid! The hand movements when it gets to the other side is what gets me. I even tried this on my student today and I still had a hard time. So, kudos! It looks great.

    I love when you wear your hair like this it is so lovely. Dont you just love stake conference. We had it too but it got canceled because we had massive tornado here and some of our ward members got hit so the Stake Presidency decided to spend the day helping those in need. I think that was a great reason to cancel church.
