Where do your feet go?

This past week I’ve been taking pictures of where my feet go and posting them on my Instagram.  The guest speaker at our church was talking about where your feet go, God goes with you and had mentioned asking people at the church he used to preach at to take photos of where there feet went that week. So off I went to take photos of where my feet went. Unspoken challenge accepted.

The feet photos that day were really great. Taken with my real camera. Out in nature while doing this photo shoot for the blog. After that, they were crappy cell phone photos mostly at or around work and at the grocery store. I really thought my feet were going to go somewhere really cool or do something really fun.

Reality is, God is going with me to work and to the grocery store. Wah. Wah. Wah. I’m sure even He’s bored with that. But in the mundane, everyday places life takes us, it’s good to know God goes with us. Sometimes work is hard. Sometimes the grocery store is boring. Sometimes we go to the grocery store after work and want to run all the slow pokes in front of us down with our grocery cart. God is still with us. I think that was the point of this exercise. Not necessarily to go out and find great adventures for our feet to go on, but to know God is there in the here and now. In what we’re really doing every day. There’s comfort in knowing that.

 

On to the outfit. I found this crushed velvet tunic top at Village Merchants consignment shop down in Portland when I went a few weeks ago with my sister and nieces and son. The shoes are super cute denim bow sandals I got a TJ Maxx a few years ago. The white stretchy pants I just got at Kohl’s recently. If they’d stop getting dirty when I traipse about in the woods in them, I’d wear them more often. They are that comfortable. Flowers from the Gresham Saturday Farmers Market.

Yes. I walked out on a fallen log across a small creek at some point while taking photos. In wedge sandals.

Where will your feet take you this week? Just remeber, where you’re going, God goes with you. Even in the mundane boring-ness of everyday life.

Swingy leopard print top + thoughts on the new animal print for the season

 

Leopard print is always in. I feel like it’s a classic that never goes out of style. But even leopard print can come back in a whole new way. Like, for instance, this red pleated swingy animal print top from H&M. How fun is this? Sooo fun. Lightweight and breezy and super fun to twirl. Yes. If it is a good outfit to twirl in, I twirl. Even if it’s just a top that’s twirly and not a dress or skirt.

Red pleated leopard print top, here. Black velvet shorts, old, similar here. Rose gold clutch purse, similar here. Black cat eye sunglasses, similar here. Rose gold tassel necklace, similar, here. Circle earrings, similar, here. Sketchers floral sneakers, here.

And if the music is good, we dance…

Other animal prints I’m loving and have my eyes on are: zebra print and Dalmatian print. I’m seeing them online when I’m browsing websites. I like them both and hope they both come in this season. Usually there’s only one animal print other than leopard that’s in at a time. I still don’t think tiger print is going to make it big just yet. I wrote about that, here.

Which one are you rooting for? Are you still riding the snakeskin wave from last winter, or are you ready for a new animal print to make a comeback? Maybe we should come up with a different one altogether. Like color changing lizard skin. Haha. I’m all for a color-changing fabric. Is that invented yet? If so, please send my way…

As always, thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
