I would not consider myself in expert in many things.
I'm an expert at oversleeping and running late.
I'm an expert at laughing way too loud at inappropriate moments.
I also could be considered an expert in making meals the husband will like (good thing he eats everything), reading too many books at a time, procrastinating and eating lots of chips and salsa.
I am not, however, an expert in fashion.
I bring this up because I'll be holding a fashion workshop at the Influence Conference. The point of the workshop is not for me to hold court as an expert, but to host a conversation about faith and fashion-- something I think most people would think wouldn't mix.
But what I've been learning is that God is in all things-- big things and little things-- even little things like what you wear.
I share what I wear on the blog because I like it. I get a (strange) joy in putting outfits together (and always have-- ask my mother) and I like to encourage other people to do the same: to find a style that makes them feel good. Style isn't about just buying the next best or latest thing-- it's a form of art, really, a creative thing to have fun with.
If you're thinking about going to the conference, check it out. And if not, that's totally cool-- now you just know what my areas of expertise. :)
p.s. do you like the dandelions in our overgrown grass? Forget weeding them; we're starting a dandelion farm... ;)
