|My preferred missions attire!|
As an up & coming/new Praying Pelican Missions lady, I’m joining in their blog series about missions fashion. Here’s the goal:
Tips and tricks from Praying Pelican Missions lady missionaries on how to look good, feel good and take the pressure off of packing your suitcase for a new culture, climate and lifestyle. Our heart is to remove the anxiety and focus from timeless questions like: “What do I wear?” and give you a few times that we’ve learned throughout the years. Ultimately, we pray that these posts would be a resource for you as you prepare for your trip. We want to provide you with a few tools that can help you remain focused on what God is teaching you and doing around you during your time abroad, instead of the length of your shorts, the style of your still-wet hair or how much makeup is appropriate. But of course, throughout it all, we must have fun in the process!
Check out the other ladies’ blogs:
Christy, Leah, Bethany, Amanda, and Liz!
Here’s thoughts from your very own missions fashionista!!! 🙂
On this blog, I’m highlighting the 3 (THREE) critical, must haves on ANY mission trip! Here’s a nice little diddy to get us going:
You can wear them in the water
You can use ’em in the dirt,
You can wear them when you’re hiking
even use ’em when you’re workin’… but don’t get hurt!
They look good with that one-piece suit!
They look good with those v-nect tees
They look great with that polka-dot bandana
So take lots of pics PLEASE!
So what am I talking about?
What do I love?
Well… it’s a pair of Chacos of course…
They fit ya like a glove!
Seriously, every missionary’s outfit is completed with a pair of Chacos! They have tons o’ colors and lots of styles!!! They seriously can be worn ANYwhere to do ANYthing!!! they are wonderful! They last forever. BUT… they do tend to stink after a bit! Don’t fret though – just stick them in the dish washer (not with the dishes) and put them through a cycle… they’ll be good as new! My Chacos have been with me through the Africa sun and dirt, the Costa Rican rain forest, the Belizean turf, and the Mexican terrain!! They work like champs!
And the BEST thing about Chacos is… THE CHACO TAN LINE!!!!!
