Women's Calendar Brunch Recap

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday good people! Reflecting back on these past couple of days, I realize belatedly I didn't plan my itinerary of "must get these errands done before my trip" really well and of course now I'm running low on time. I'm headed out of town this weekend....more work, no play.....and I thought I was going to cooler temps but low and behold, New Orleans is mighty sunny this weekend. Oh well, hopefully I'll be able to lose myself at Cafe' du Monde with my clothes several shades lighter by the time I leave (all you beignet fans know what I mean). It's the least I can manage since I will have absolutely no time to shop.....blasphemy, I know!

I attended an event at my church last Saturday called a 'Calendar Brunch'. Basically the women of church and community we get together in fellowship and we have women born in each month of the calendar create decorations for their table and provide finger foods for the guests. I was co-captain of my birth month, April, and our theme was "Showers Full of Blessings". We decorated our table like a garden and attached bible verses that reflected the theme to the face of some of the flowers. We won 3rd place so I think it came out pretty well. They also added a fashion show from several local vendors but I wasn't really feeling the styles so no photos to share (don't judge me). I am going to share a couple of quick photos of my table and what I wore below.



Our little garden full of blessings......



Close up....we only had a small table to work with and we had to leave room for the food. It turned out well (my photography skills are so deficient). Sadly, we were the only month that had a biblical based theme......o_o



I chose a simple dress but added a little punch of color with my accessories.





Love this clutch........love these pumps.......that.is.all.





Earrings - Street vendor
Dress/Belt - Old Navy
Bracelets - Boutique in Bahamas

Have a safe and wonderful weekend!





Ciao!
