Diary of a Pastoral Fashionista

Tights: Steve Madden
Dress: Target
Cardigan: Target
Scarf: TranquiliT

I advocate wearing lots of dark shades and then integrating a single splash of bright color for daily work wear! It can be a scarf or a sweater. Or a bright necklace. Play around and have fun!

This scarf is TranquiliT brand, and I love love love it! Super duper soft! I let a friend from church borrow it for a 50-year class reunion, and she said she got oodles of compliments.

On a personal note: I had a blood test on Monday and my platelets and hemoglobin seem to be disappearing again. Oh dear! My wonderful hematologist, Dr. Hook, is giving my body 2 weeks to turn things around before considering treating my silly blood disease again. I've had 9 months of glorious remission, so I pray it continues. All prayers and happy thoughts appreciated! Thank you!

And it's Ash Wednesday and the season of Lent is upon us! Welcome to Lent 2012!

Some hope quotes:

Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops... at all.
-Emily Dickinson

Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up
and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come.
-Anne Lamott

  1. I am not happy to hear about those darn platelets. I HOPE that the next few weeks bring an abundance of platelets, as well as rest and rejuvenation. Welcome to Lent, indeed...
