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 andย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love, love the look of the mixed metals! You look absolutely stunning.

  14. 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.

    I love my Zara clutch; your outfit looks just like what I wear to church too ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really like the mixed metal colors, and the red lips just make the whole outfit even more perfect.:)

  17. 11.11.2011 / 5:50 pm

    You’re looking lovely, Kristina! I instantly recognized your lovely clutch from Zara ๐Ÿ™‚ It goes so well with your outfit & nail polish.

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

  20. 11.11.2011 / 11:32 pm

    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!” ๐Ÿ˜€

  21. 11.12.2011 / 4:50 am

    Don’t get me wrong, you always look great but this ensemble is so CHIC, it’s not even funny! I love how you have layered everything; it looks effortless!!

  22. 11.13.2011 / 12:13 am

    Nice pictures, i love that sequined clutch and very great lip color !

  23. 11.13.2011 / 10:36 pm

    I always feel super dumpy in work trousers but this combo is anything but!! I love your use of accessories – especially the animal print belt and red lipstick. I’m def a fan of your blog and will be checking back for more tips.
    Best – CK

    I love this outfit, K! It’s perfect for church – I always have the same problem too. And who couldn’t love the sequin clutch. ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. 11.14.2011 / 11:53 am

    Lovely bag! Also, I think your outfit is sufficently church-fine. Trousers are always good for formal stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  32. 11.16.2011 / 9:50 am

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking lovely as usual, Kristina!Hope you are doing well and that you’re having fun in NY as well!

  33. 11.16.2011 / 4:28 pm

    Love this church outfit – I have the same issues with this too! I have that clutch too, and haven’t put it down since I got it a few weeks ago.
    So pretty!


  34. 11.17.2011 / 2:34 pm

    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!

    You are so pretty with what you have worn. LEt me just say that you are so simple but very elegant which is I am liking a lot.
