After my last blog post I’ve gotten a couple “Ask Emily” submissions asking for help finding outfits appropriate to wear to church, so I figured it would be easiest to start with the exact details of everything I’m wearing! Many people think that in order to dress “church appropriate” you have to give up your own style or that you have to look like a nun, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Of course, you should wear something that doesn’t show too much skin, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pile on the jewelry and wear your favorite pair of high heels!
You can also wear tights with a skirt that might be a little questionable.. I always say if you have to ask someone if it’s too short, it more than likely is! So, try wearing a pair of opaque tights so you’re a little more covered up. My favorite brand is Spanx because they don’t fade and I’ve had the same pair forever without getting any holes in them, which is a miracle for me! And instead of wearing a full on blazer I wore a blazer vest, which apparently is in style this season. I bought it while I was in Florida for New Years Eve only because it was too hot for a full jacket, and now I’m seeing them everywhere! I’ve worn this BCBG one with everything from shorts to jeans and get compliments every time. For jewelry I’m wearing one of my favorite pieces, my Clair necklace, which I swear goes with everything and because it’s the perfect length I can layer it with other necklaces as well. I’m also wearing my Carter earrings, which make enough of a statement without competing with the rest of the outfit.
