If you’re new here, welcome! We’d love if you’d subscribe to the blog and our other social media locations (on the right side bar).
Go –>here<– to see the linkups of past weeks to know what this is all about.
Have you been reading the blog this past week? We posted an easy to follow guide all about shopping online flash sales! We had a great guest post from Deme demonstrating how to take one dress and make it appropriate for all 4 seasons! She gave great tips on stretching your wardrobe with other items, as well.
Also, get ready for a load of awesomeness coming to the blog soon. We know we have been slow on posts during the week, but the future is looking bright with many new p
osts! This coming week we’ll be featuring 3 guests posts all about do-it-yourself fashion and beauty. We can’t give you any more details than that, because then we’d spoil all the fun!
We’re also hosting an extra special linkup on January 28th, details coming on Monday next week. There will even be a giveaway from Kendra as part of the fun! And in the first week of February, we’ll be hosting our very first giveaway from a lovely shop (which is a surprise. I know, we’re torturing you with lack of details)!
So the moral of all this is: make sure you are following us on twitter, facebook, or by email (all on right sidebar) so that you don’t miss any of this amazing action.
Back to what I wore Sunday!
So I live in Ohio. And it’s 62 degrees. So what did I do to celebrate? Wore a pretty dress! In fact, the same dress that I wore for our engagement pictures.
You have no idea how exciting it is to be able to wear this. In January. In Ohio. No idea.
Anyway, dress is from Macy’s.
Shoes from DSW (I’ve worn them a lot. But they’re my absolute fave)
Sweater is my mom’s. Yep, I still steal my mom’s clothing.
Earrings with an awkwardly-close closeup are from a Christmas present from francesca’s collection.
It was pretty warm today for us too! In fact, I sort of regret not just wearing a short sleeve top to church, but oh well. It feels like summer outside….
Outfit details first:
Target Cardigan, H&M white shirt and grey tank underneath, Forever 21 strapless dress that I wore as a high waisted skirt instead today. I really like the pattern, but ever since my dad saw it and called it my “tribal skirt” I can’t think of it as anything but funny anymore….sigh.
I also had on really cute nude heels that I got from an Ideeli flash sale, but those came off as soon as I got home and I forgot to put them back on for the picture. Oh yeah, I had a necklace at one point too. It was a cute flower necklace that my sister Kaitlin brought me back from when she was living in Kosovo…..but I think Henry ripped it off.
I really need to start taking pictures before we go to Mass.
My husband and I play a “game” most Sunday mornings when it comes to choosing a mass time. We never set an alarm, and we look at the clock when we wake up. If it’s before 10:45, we get ready and go to 11:30 church. If it’s after then, we go to 5:30 evening mass.
I can’t remember the last time we woke up early enough for the first mass (yeah I know we sleep late), but today was one of those days. I woke up to my husband yelling “Hey! We woke up early enough for morning mass, want to go?!?” So I we did. It feels good to go right away, honestly.
Henry only has 2 modes at church these days: grouchy and wanting to sleep/nurse, or um…*passionately* happy. So basically, there is no way to win the quiet game at church anymore. We just hope that whoever sits near us likes a rowdy happy baby
Speaking of which, he was both of those things at church today, and cried the whole way home. Of course, after church he’s fine, although the pants and socks came off fairly quick. The other half of his outfit is a cute little sweater and a yellow diaper, which managed to stay on.
Happy Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord Jesus! We can’t wait to visit your posts and see how your church experiences went! (and of course, what you wore.)
Thanks for participating, as always!
