What I Wore to Church: Sunday July 27th!


If you’ve ever looked around the blog networks typically you’ll see a ‘What I Wore’ segment on most beauty blogs. For me being a woman I really enjoy looking at these! They feed my inner desire to attempt to be fashionable, haha! But I like looking at them so much that I figured I’d start my own ‘What I Wore’ but do a sunday edition!

So here it is: What I Wore to Church!

I think there’s a problem in most parishes that people don’t know how to properly dress to go to mass. Especially in the summer, with the heat and all, people begin to either become skimpier with their clothing or they don’t dress up at all. Personally, I believe that when you go to the Lord’s house you should be properly dressed. Do you need to go all out? No. But should you be covered? Yes. I like I think of it as putting on your best, clean clothes. Don’t look like a pile of rags and don’t look like you’re going to work out if you don’t have to!

This is what I wore to my 6 o’clock mass.

I don’t typically wear skirts. Pants are usually my friends but I decided to switch it up today! My inspiration came from Pinterest (obviously!)

Here are the details about my clothes:
Shirt: Thrifted denim shirt with the sleeves rolled up, $3
Skirt: Purchased from Family Dollar, $11
Shoes: Payless brand, $10?
Belt: Deb, came from one of my other dresses
Jewelry: Saint Anne medal, gifted from the boyfriend 🙂

How do you think people should dress to go to church? Do you think some people show too much skin? Should churches tell their congregation about how to dress? Let me know!

Til then. God bless!

Hello & Welcome!


Hi guys! 


This is my friend Paige (on the left) & I! She’s pretty awesome.

Let me introduce myself… I’m Carleigh and this is my blog: The Thrifty Catholic! I’m so glad you could stumble upon my blog and hopefully you’ll be able to obtain some useful information on here! 
This blog will kind of be a cluster of things ranging from religion, lifestyle, reviews, and other miscellaneous things going on in my life. So, in a sense, this blog represents myself. 

But first, here are 10 facts about myself. 

  1. I converted to Catholicism over the past year of my life. I came home to the Church and was finally baptism, confirmed, and had my first communion on April 19th, 2014. God is great! 
  2. I am a college student majoring in Communications (currently) and my goal is to work for some sort of non-profit organization! Fingers crossed! 
  3. I really love reviewing products and giving my opinion on things. Like, a lot. 
  4. My favorite bible verse is 2 Timothy 1:7. For God gave us not a spirit of fearfulness; but of power and love and discipline.
  5. I am left handed! 
  6. I adore thrift shopping and getting really good deals! I am a bit frugal but I love shopping, so thrifting suits me very well! 
  7. My nail polish collection is HUGE. Well, in my opinion it’s huge. I would say I’m happily addicted to nail polish. 
  8. Fall is my favorite season. I love being bundled up in a scarf and throwing on a cardigan! Call me old lady-like, but I can’t help it. 
  9. I am apart of Sigma Alpha Iota. It is a international music fraternity for women. If you’re apart of it, contact me! I’d love to get in touch with a fellow SAI sister! Vita brevis ars longa! 
  10. I long to become a catechist for the Catholic Church. I love to inform people about our beautiful faith and how much meaning Jesus put into His Church. Hopefully I will be able to become one soon! 

That seems to be all for now. I am very excited to see what entries this blog entails! I’ll try to update and post frequently. Til then, God bless!
