Sunday Style // all of space and time

o u t f i t
skirt / jacket / lace blouse // thrifted {Goodwill}
tank top // thrifted {Dazzle}
black flats // Fred Meyer
TARDIS Starry Night necklace // Doomsday Studios

I found this fabulous denim skirt while thrifting with Kellie last Friday.  Normally I prefer full skirts but I'm really loving this look!  Plus, it's got pockets and belt loops.  Perfection.  I also bought the green tank top the same day and decided to come up with an outfit pairing them both.  My TARDIS necklace really pulls the ensemble together.  Topping it all with the jean jacket made it perfect for a sunny spring day. 

At church, we read about Jesus driving out the money lenders in the temple in John 2:13-21.  

And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
But he spake of the temple of his body.

Pastor applied it to our lives by asking us what do we have in our "temple".

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God. and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Are we filling our mind and heart with things that bring Him glory?  Very thought provoking.  I didn't feel particularly convicted about anything in my life that I need to change, but it's good to be reminded to be careful what we watch, read, and do.  Can't be reminded to often or be too careful!

After church we stopped by a friend's farm to buy some raw cows milk for my bottle lamb.  It was so wonderful walking around the farm in the sunshine and seeing their baby goats and lambs!  And even cuter are little girls in dresses holding those baby goats.  So adorable!  If we'd been thinking, we could have got some awesome outfit photos while we were there.  Oh well. :) When we got home, Kellie and I made mini pineapple upside down cakes (we used this recipe) and watched Psych.  It was the perfect day!

What was your sermon about?
Was the sun shining where you live?
What did you do yesterday?
I want to know!

Linking up to...


  1. I was really blessed by Pastor's sermon as well.... He hit the nail on the head, and made me really want to cling closer to Jesus, and not let anything get in the way of serving Him!!

    Spring!! Oh Tasha, it's Spring!!! Woohoo!!!! <3

  2. Cute skirt and top combo! Love the TARDIS Starry Night. You would love to see that painting in the museum. You cannot believe the colors when you get up close! Incredible, amazing, dazzling!

    We can also look at the money changers as those who perpetrated bigotry and unfair practices in life as it was the Gentiles who were made to pay a higher rate and thus were robbed of their hard earned money to line the pockets of the money changers. The question then becomes, how do I participate in unfair practices that prey on the people I consider "lower" than me? How do I rationalize taking more from those who are different from me and whom maybe I disagree with? We talked about this same passage this past Sunday in Sunday school class. It was one of the few passages where Jesus makes it clear that we should all be treated equal and the Temple especially should not be used as a place to marginalize others and take advantage of them. If we are all brothers and sisters, then we cannot exclude others, especially for our profit. It is indeed a passage to carefully consider and pray about this season of Lent.

  3. This outfit looked so cute on you Tasha! I wish I could have stayed and visited with you and Kellie longer, but we had a jam packed afternoon ahead of us.:)
    Love ya!

  4. Yesterday was so beautiful, so wonderful, so much fun:) Additionally, all words that should be applied to you and your outfit<3 I really, really love that skirt on you.

  5. Hi we had a nice service at church. The preaching was about baptism.
    We had yesterday sadly enough only rain and lots of wind here in the Netherlands the weather is still really cold. I would love to get nice spring weather! I like you're blog! Especially the Sundaystyle! Greetings! Sjoukje

  6. This is such cute and feminine outfit; love the lace top with the denim jacket! The sun would shine off and on throughout the day. Yesterday's sermon was about the three crosses on Calvary;the cross of rejection{the thief who refused Jesus}, the cross of reception{the thief who received Jesus}, and the cross of redemption{Jesus}! After church I enjoyed watching Fiddler on the Roof!
    In Christ,

  7. Ok, love the shirt and I LOVE that necklace!!!
