When I purchased these pants on clearance a couple seasons ago, I figured they'd be worn once and then quickly become "the beach pants". Well, while they are definitely on my beach packing list, I've gotten my money's worth wearing them inland. They go nicely with any solid pop of color, so it's like I have new pants each time I switch out top and accessories. And coral mixes fabulously with so many colors...blue, grey, black, white, green, beige, and the list goes on.

A little random thought for ya...I looked through my blog posts the other day and couldn't help but notice the routine of my life weaved through outfits.
Casual, casual, casual and then slightly dressy. Repeat.
Slightly dressy is worn to church related fun and Sunday mornings at church.
Errands, errands, errands and then church stuff. Repeat.
Now, I stand by the saying "come as your are". Jeans, shorts, piercings or tattoos don't offend me in the least. (Sometimes I wonder if walking shoes wouldn't be better for navigating around our campus!) However, the way I'm dressed often effects how I feel or present myself. For example, I'd walk into just about anywhere with this outfit on. However, if I go in my yoga pants, I'll be tempted to do wall sits and lunges to and from worship. No sin there. Though it may be a little distracting. And if I'm not wearing a bra, I'm not doing anything but housework or laying around.
Personally, I like to take it up on notch on Sunday mornings, starting with a shower and my bra (I hope you hear my humor here) and be ready for whatever may come. On the other hand, sometimes my preparation to get ready outwardly, leaves no time to ready my heart and mind to hear from God. And that's where I can go wrong from time to time if, I'm not careful. I want to experience REAL peace, REAL joy and Real love from God and for others. In order to accomplish this on a crazy Sunday morning, I may need to invest time on Saturday night or get up earlier. And remember this too...
So how about you? Would you wear joggers? Do you attend church anywhere? No judgement here. Just genuine curiosity. I can't say enough about how much I've enjoyed getting to know others through this venture!
