WIW: Lace and Pearls

What I Wore to Church
(I will be linking this outfit up to the Pleated Poppy and Momma Go Round)

 Shirt: Forever 21, Skirt: Banana Republic, Shoes: Reflections, Belt: Forever 21,
Necklace, Earrings, Ring: c/o Stella & Dot via my gal Tahnie of A Happy Girl

I believe in lace and pearls.
I believe that dirty hair are a curls best friend.
I believe in always saying I love you before hanging up.
I believe that when you could use an extra dose of blessings in your life,
answer others prayers first.
I believe that Audrey Hepburn knew every girl deserves a piece of nice jewelry,
and on Sunday I wore mine.
I believe Miss Hepburn was wise beyond her years.
Oh yeah, and I believe in pink too.

What do you believe in?

A special thank you to Tahnie, for sending me jewelry that makes me feel pretty.
Tahnie has a very rare disorder called Cystinosis, and the proceeds of her Stella & Dot sales go towards her medical bills.
