“In order for your life to be great, you must first learn to appreciate it!”
Whether you are a church-goer or not, I am sure you are all aware of what Sunday Best means. To me, it is something that is somewhere in between the very often conservative styles that can be considered business wear, and the more formal outfit choices that are worn for events or special occasions.
I have always been someone that likes to dress up, I think it’s because I grew up in England and during my younger years when I would be dressing to go out at night to a club or wherever, the dress code was always a lot more dressy than I have seen over here in the US. Jeans weren’t allowed and for Men they required that they wear a nice shirt, and Women wore either nice pants, skirt or a dress. I enjoyed making myself look nice and classy, so that is something that I have carried with me.
Even if you aren’t someone that goes to church, there is never a bad time to wear Sunday Best – it doesn’t just have to be on a Sunday. The outfit in this post is a throwback to one I have posted before because I wanted to demonstrate that this outfit was something I wore for work but it is also something that is appropriate and classy enough to be worn as Sunday best, or as an outfit to wear to go out. I love the monochrome look, it has always been something that has drawn my attention – it is also a really easy look to recreate and the colors suit anyone!

After an amazing day with my family, I feel blessed to enjoy Sunday’s with them, especially when we get to see the Utah Jazz beat the LA Clippers in Game 7 of the NBA Playoffs…It makes the day even better!!
Sunday’s for our family are a day to be lazy, hang out, swim, BBQ, spend some time preparing for what the upcoming week has in store for us, and feel blessed to have each other. I truly do feel thankful for my many blessings, only one of which is my family. Not that they don’t bring challenges, but one thing I do realize is that the only way to truly appreciate somehting is to know how hard things can be. How could I appreciate how great things are if I have never experienced any adversity – although challenges are hard, they are what help us KNOW what is important.
Next time you are thinking of putting together your own version of Sunday best, remember that we all have different interpretations of what we like, and that is a good thing. Who wants to look the same as anyone else anyway? I know that I definitely don’t. Be unique, be amazing, be confident, be determined, be YOU!
Have a great week…
