What I Wore Sunday Volume 134

image

 

Whew.  What a week it’s been you guys. I don’t know about you but I feel like I have explained the Catholic stance on climate control, the right to  bear arms, and homosexuality more times than I can count.   I find that really all it takes to defend our faith sometimes is to explain it, and for that I am grateful.  People often don’t know what they believe, they only know what the media says that we believe.  It’s so important to know why we believe what we believe.

I was a little rushed before Mass, and honestly just not in the mindset to think very hard about what to wear.  I love having basic items for days like today, when I otherwise would be tempted to let my kids pick my clothes out of desperation. ;)

Not the dressiest thing I’ve ever worn, but for sure not the worst either! I was thrilled that the weather was nice enough today to wear black pants without roasting.

Happy Father’s Day!

I apologize for the lack of photo today, but it is Father’s Day and our focus today has been on family time.

I do want to encourage you to remember any special priests in your life today, and well as fathers and grandfathers.  Our priests work very hard for sometimes little thanks, and I’m sure it’s a gift to be rememberIed by their spiritual children.

I hope you all have a fabulous day! I can’t wait to read your posts! :)

Happy Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary!  For those of you that have been following along, you know that today is the day our parish performed our Marian Consecration.  Look for a post of that maaaybe this week.  We shall see!

Let’s see what else was I going to share with all of you ?  Oh yes!  We had a fantastic speaker this last week – the inspiring Meg Hunter-Kilmer!  If you don’t follow her already, please go do so!  And invite her to your parish – she will come and bring plenty of joy, excitement, and love of the Lord!  Seriously – she calls herself a hobo for Christ.  Invite her guys – she will come and you will be so glad.  And she may even take a selfie with you.

Ok, outfits right?  That’s why we’re here today?  Here’s what I wore:

I even have details this week – are you as shocked as I am?

Dress – Banana Republic.  It had a tie that tied in the back but I altered it cut it off and am so glad I did!

Cami – it’s one of those fake cami things (kind of like this)! I kind of love it for under material like this!

Shoes – Shoe Show

That’s all I’ve got for this week!  Link up below and tell me about your weekend. :)

What I Wore Sunday – Volume 131

Guys….it’s hot.  Summer is officially here in the Midwest I think.  My kids have gone from being super excited to play outside as much as possible to being super excited to be outside for…..about an hour.  It’s not the heat its the humidity right?

On that note, while I am a big fan of “cover the shoulders!” I didn’t follow my own rule for Mass today.  Or maybe I kind of did?  I’m not sure.  What do you think about this cardigan?

I’ve been on a role with the cell phone shots lately – and I really have no excuse because my camera has been in my hand most of the week!  I’ll try and do better next week. :)

Happy Feast of the Holy Trinity!  I love this feast day that celebrates the central mystery of our Christian faith!

Confession – it’s also my birthday.  Want to guess my age? No?  I promise I won’t  be offended.  :)  All you get to help you out is a cell phone snap today, so if you’re way off you can blame it on that!

I found this skirt a couple of months ago and didn’t buy it.  But I kept thinking about it, so I finally gave in and went and got it.  Sorry about the coral shirt making yet another appearance.  I just love it! :)

What I Wore Sunday- Volume 129

Happy Pentecost Sunday, and happy birthday to the Church!  Did you wear your red today?  I’ve been trying to follow the liturgical colors lately – sometimes I succeed and most of the time I don’t.  Today we succeeded.  :)

Pentecost-keep-calm

I saw an awesome post about Pentecost being the Church’s birthday, and now that I’m sitting down to write this post I can’t find it.  But if you’re not familiar with hearing Pentecost called the birthday of the church take a few minutes and look it up.  You’ll be glad you did. :)

All I have is a selfie today – but my handsome husband makes a cameo appearance!

On Pentecost we wear red.

Sorry, I had to say it.

image1(3)Sarah also has a side kick in her photo today!  How adorable are these two lovely ladies?!

Just a repeat reminder from last week!  The Visitation Project airs every Sunday night!  Be sure to check it out! It’s a new Catholic radio show for women, and it features some of my favorite people – Rebecca Frech from Shoved to Them, Bonnie from A Knotted Life, and Heather from Real Catholic Mom.  You can hear the past two episodes on their site here and a new one will air this evening! These ladies have been such a blessing in my life, and I know that you will love them too.

What I Wore Sunday – Volume 128

Well hello there!  Looks like it’s that time again – time to share your Mass outfits for all the inter-webs to see!  As I started this post today, I was thinking about our new readers.  We get an influx every so often – sometimes we are featured in various places, and of course we get traffic from all of you lovely ladies that are kind enough to link up with us every week.  We haven’t reflected on the purpose behind this blog in quite sometime, and I thought that I might throw in a link to an older post that talks about why we do what we do here.  So here you go!  If you don’t want to click the link, here is a quote that will summarize it for you in a few short words:  “Think about how much care you would put in to dressing to meet the Queen of England.  How much more care should you use to meet the King of Heaven and Earth?”

Moving on…what else have we talked about recently?  Oh, that’s right!  Marian Consecration.  Thanks to everyone who emailed/messaged their experiences and thoughts.  I appreciate all of them!  I am currently on Day 7 of 33 Days of Morning Glory.  Days 4, 5, and 6 were a pretty big reality check for me.  I’m still with it though!

While we’re talking about Mary – I just purchased the Kindle version of this book tonight.  So many of my favorite people contributed to this – and the main author is the awesome Michele from My Domestic Monastery!  There’s no way this book isn’t wonderful.

One more thing!! Have you all heard of The Visitation Project?!  Be sure to check it out!  It’s a new Catholic radio show for women, and it features some of my favorite people – Rebecca French from Shoved to Them, Bonnie from A Knotted Life, and Heather from Real Catholic Mom.  Y’all its wonderful.  You can hear the past two episodes on their site here and a new one will air this evening!  You will love it!

Whew!  How about an outfit?  Photo courtesy of the sweetest pre-teen I know. :)

Y’all, I just realized how often I have worn this shirt this Spring!  Holy cow.  I’ll try and change it up a bit!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of our mommas!  I hope you are having a fantastic day with all of those you love – or in a secluded place enjoying silence, whichever is your cup of tea. ;)

I don’t have a full outfit photo today, since we’ve been doing a lot of running around.  But I do have a selfie with my beautiful grandma who will be 92 in June!

Isn’t she just gorgeous?!

We are starting Marian Consecration at our parish this week.  If you’ve been following for awhile you know that this is something that I’ve gone back and forth on for quite some time.  No matter how dedicated of a convert you are, some things can still be hard to wrap your head around when you hear them for the first time, and for me one of those things has been Marian Consecration.  Not because I don’t love Mary, because I do.  When things are new and different, we naturally tend to pull away from them.  I am excited to start on the book and see where this journey leads.  If you would like to do the Consecration along with us, it starts today!  We are using the book “33 Days to Morning Glory.”  I will try and blog the journey as I go!

Come share your outfits/Mother’s Day/Marian Consecration thoughts with me in the link-up and comments!  Can’t wait to hear from you!

Welcome to What I Wore Sunday!  Today is also known as Prom Sunday here – my oldest niece’s senior prom was today! I’m a boy mom, so I really enjoy spending time with my nieces on days like today, and helping them get all dressed up and gorgeous.  This is the only photo that I have from today – it doesn’t show my whole outfit, but I love it anyways.  And her. :)

Welcome to What I Wore Sunday! What a whirlwind it’s been since last Sunday – I feel like it’s been longer than a week since last week’s WIWS.

All I have is a cell selfie today – sorry about that!  It was pouring down rain here as we headed to Mass.
