HEY, YOU GUUUUYS! Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale launched this morning!!! Take up to 40% off pretty much everything on the site. I’ll be back this weekend with some of my faves from the sale, but in the meantime… shop it here!

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming! I’m not sure if you know this, but Sunday is my favorite day of the week. It’s a day I like to reserve for organizing and preparing for the week ahead. Whether that be working on blog posts for The Style Scribe, doing laundry, running errands, making to-do lists, or booking upcoming travel, I always make sure to fit as much in on Sunday as I can so I can get through the week a little more stress-free.

In addition to those things, going to church is another way I like to start my week anew. It helps to put the prior week in the backseat and really focus on what’s now and what’s next. When I am home, I go to HPUMC in Dallas and always try to attend a service where Paul Rasmussen is leading. He talks about scripture in a realistic and practical way that not only makes sense to me, but also makes it easy to apply to my everyday life.

Going to church also gives me an excuse to get dressed up. During the week, you can often find me in my workout clothes – running from PureBarre to errands or to my desk. Unless I have meetings during the week, Sunday is really the only morning I have to get dressed with a purpose. This dress has been a good go-to for church this season and other times when I need something demure and sophisticated to wear (like to a luncheon or shower). Shoshanna makes amazing party dresses as well (loving this onethis one and this one!), but she keeps the cuts relatively modest in terms of hem length and necklines. If you’re looking for longer pieces, check out this printed chiffon dress and this lace one.

I must admit it’s been difficult to make it to church while I’ve been traveling so much. With that said, I would love some travel-friendly devotionals to take with me on my adventures. Do you guys have any recommendations? Would love to hear what you’ve been reading!
