Beauty & Style by Jill {week 15}

Welcome back to my weekly fashion column, where I share my favorite ensembles from the prior week to help you create new looks with all the clothes you already own.

Today, I’m sharing three of my new favorite outfits and moments over the last few weeks!

First up, my new favorite spring sweater from Lands End with sandals I just found at Steinmart.   What a great weekend outfit for a day of seaside adventures!   My jeans and necklace you have seen many times.

I think this might be my next purchase.  How cute is this sweater?

Next is my Easter dress.  OK ladies, don’t be upset but I bought this a few months ago at Target in the girls section.  I couldn’t believe the 14/16 XL in fit me either.   I love this dress and the light teal liner under the lace.    My necklace is from Francesca’s last summer.  My shoes are from Target two summers ago.  As I often tell our children, “it pays to take care of your things.”

My final outfit for this week holds the most memorable moment of my life.   Because April 4, 2015 during the Easter Vigil my two year conversion became a reality and I was lovingly welcomed into the Catholic Church.  It is a night I will never take forget and the memories will be cherished forever!

My skirt is from Chicwish and my sweater is from Lands End.  My blue suede shoes are almost 18 years old.  And I love them just as much today as I did when I first bought them.  They will always find their way back in style!

This is my precious husband who has been extremely patient, loving, supportive, and gracious with me as I challenged him every step of the way to this moment.  He is such a gift to me and our family!   Our two older children were invited to attend the Easter Vigil with us and as you can see they were beyond thrilled to see mommy enter the church and take my first Holy Communion.  I was confirmed as well and my joy literally bubbled out of me.  I hugged all of our priests who have journeyed with me this last year.
