Ready for church in a @JJillStyle #linen dress

Church days are always special-if we are receptive they fill us with new inspiration and help lift the mind from the mundane and trivial to the bigger and more important things in life. They reinforce our noble aspirations and desires helping us to prepare for the work week ahead.

The other day I was talking to my friend Marianne who is much older than me and she was reminiscing about the good old days when dressing up for church was so important. As children she and her sisters would look forward to getting out of bed on Church Sundays and  irrespective of the weather would dress up in stockings, hats and gloves to go to church with their mother. 

I like to keep up with the old tradition of 'Church day dressing'-it's my sign of respect for something which is very important to me. Ofcourse, it also makes me feel really good! In deciding what clothes to wear for church, I prefer to choose something which is elegant yet comfortable for long hours of sitting and also something that can easily transition into post-church impromptu lunch engagements with friends!

A simple and elegant linen dress from Jjill accessorized with a Coach handbag big enough to carry a wrap and a sweater and comfortable Cole Haan slip-ons makes a perfect church outfit!

There is still time to benefit from the Labor Day and Summer Sales and stock up on your chic church outfits for next summer. :)

Here, my favorite labels that offer classic styles that last!
