I'll be honest. Shopping for sister missionary clothes is the WORST. Oh my heavens. I cried a few times. As a tall, curvy Cuban girl, it has been SO difficult to find skirts that are long enough and cute. No offense to anyone, but I don't want to look frumpy or like I'm almost homeless. Sorry! But it's true. I've always been someone who dresses somewhat nice and clean. So long skirts with just a button up is not going to cut it! I need some style and fashion here! So with my picky taste and then the limited amount of skirts that are between pencil and maxi (which are SO hard to find), it has been an insane ride.
But! For all you sisters who want to serve or are looking, just know that there IS hope. My advice: Say a massive prayer before you shop, and the Lord will guide you to sufficient options. Also, be OPEN MINDED. I found things that are cute at stores that I would never have shopped at in a million years, or stores that I thought were for "older" people. Time to grow up! Summer dresses from Forever 21 just ain't gonna cut it anymore. (Unfortunately. Those are my most favorite things.) Here are a few stores I found success in!
Stein Mart <---YES. I got a majority of my skirts here!
Now that the hardest part, skirts, are out of the way, I can focus on trying to find another pair of shoes, underclothing, and coats and such!
Time is beginning to move faster, y'all. I'm kinda freaking out.
