Okay, at what point on the temperature scale are you allowed to wear pants to church rather than a skirt or dress? I've definitely always been the "dress up" for church girl- definitely brought on by my very strict dress code mom. However, we went to church on Sunday, and it was only 13 degrees, and my legs were FREEZING outside and not much warmer inside. (Yes, I was wearing nylons that were thin (pre-pregnancy tights are no longer fitting) however, tights are not THAT much warmer!!)
I definitely love to wear dresses in the summer- mostly because I own tons of darling sundresses/Lilly dresses that are fun to wear. I do have quite a few winter dresses and skirts that I have for work attire, so it's not the lack of them that is making me question this. However, churches are often large with huge soaring ceilings and therefore do not warm up well, especially here in the frozen tundra. Many, many other people wear jeans to church, and while this is not something I will ever do (my mother's voice would be nagging me the whole service), are dress pants appropriate? What about leggings with a really cute tunic or longer top?
So, my fashionable and God fearing readers, I'm asking you to let me know what "appropriate" church attire is in the winter and at what temperature do you just give up and put the warmest thing on you own, praying that God realizes that you want to worship him however you can't do it if your teeth are chattering?? Thanks! Mwah!!!
