Day of comfort and joy

I adore “bedazzled” tops, but often pass over them online or in the store as they always require additional care and hand washing (which I loathe…).  This top, however, was worth it and I decided I’m willing to pay the hand washing fine to have it.
I admit, today I was dressed solely for comfort and plan to do so all week.  It’s project time @ work, and today I also met with a friend of mine who was visiting from out of town for a late dinner.  What a wonderful evening we had.  My friend is working to become a part of the Dominican Order, a Dominican friar.  I always find his uplifting spirit so unique and his way of looking at the world so beautiful.  What a gift to know so many different perspectives of life are prevalent.

I love tops that have embellishments like that! This looks beautiful peeking our from you blazer. Good luck at work :)

You look perfect for a casual work day. I like the jeweled top, and I know exactly what you mean about the hand washing. I'm a horrible, lazy person and I just take them to the cleaners and get them to do it there. Probably not worth the $4 since I definitely have the means to "hand wash" at home (well hello hands) but whatever!

When you know Jesus, you have a peace that passes all understanding. I think you are attracted to Jesus shining through your friend. What a blessing! Love your top-worth the hand wash for sure!

Nice beaded top, but I especially love the outter part of your outfit: trench-coat, boots and purse.
