Zara Sequin Clutch & White Shirt

Happy 11-11-11!

One of the hardest style challenges for me, personally, involves picking out a Sunday morning churchgoing outfit that is both appropriate and reflects my own personal style. Sometimes it’s a hit, other times it’s a miss. But it usually involves sequins (ooh, how scandalous). I’m usually still foggy-headed since I haven’t yet had my Starbucks (speaking of, I think I’m the only person on the planet who dislikes the red holiday cups), so it’s only when I walk out the door that I notice oddities with my chosen outfit. For this one, it was realizing that I embodied the holiday song, “Silver and Gold”. More often than not, I just shrug off the would-be faux pas and roll with it. Mixed metals, I say!

P.S. – the last photo we shot on purpose to mimic the well-circulated one that was featured on Zara’s website (and which I also featured).

I’m off to New York until Saturday for a quick trip to finish out the MNG by MANGO mission with an appearance at jcpenney Herald Square. It’ll be Friday (tonight) from 6-8pm EST if you’d like to drop by!

    I am so glad to hear I’m not the only one who struggles with putting together a church outfit…why is it so hard?! I have lots of dresses & skirts, but several of them are too short, so I usually go for trousers like yours too :)

  • Stacy

    Looks good! That combo works well.

  • http://theworldoftiffany.wordpress.com Tiffany

    I heart your bag. And I agree sometimes church clothes are hard for me too. It is like mmmm Michelle Obama or toned down Betsy Johnson LOL

    Oh! Wear this outfit to Herald Square and you will be a hit. Sophisticaton and sparkle combined. I just got back from NYC and the weather was so fab the whole time (60+ and sunny)! I swear I walked the whole city!

    Looking for a cool new place to eat? Try KittyChai in Soho (very short walk from the subway) Thai food with a prix-fixe menu! Also, Nobu on Hudson (very pricey but YUM)!

    If you get a chance, check out the new Islamic Art exhibit at the MET! Unbelievable.
    Safe travels.

    Great matching the clutch and the belt. They compliment eachother surprisingly well.

  • http://www.motherinheels.com Courtney

    It was fun to read about you choosing what to wear to church. For me, I am always debating about what shoes to wear on Sunday morning. It seems I am continually saying to my husband, “I can’t wear THAT outfit, or THOSE shoes to church!” :-D

  • http://www.motorcitymoxie.com Monique @MotorCityMoxie

    Love the nail polish. Your outfit is great for Sunday.

  • http://gigidiaries.com Katrina

    I love this look. You have managed to keep it conservative while being expressive and of course sparkly.

  • http://www.herwaisechoice.com Jen

    I know what you mean – I always want to look my best for church but it’s definitely important to not be screaming for attention or dress in an inappropriate way! I think you’ve nailed it with your put together look with bits of pizazz :) Looking lovely as usual, Kristina!
    Hope you are doing well and that you’re having fun in NY as well!

    So pretty!

    So I ordered that clutch online and finally got it and they sent me the wrong color! Called them and they sold out of the gold, again. :/
    You look so chic, I can see you going to to cocktails or the opera or something!
