Happy Sunday!

We had a post from Elizabeth about getting caught up in life. Give it a read if you haven’t.

Super lame short post today. If you have a chance, please say a prayer for our dog who was attacked by another dog at his boarding last night. We’ve spent most of today at the emergency vet and we’re hoping he’s going to be okay.

Have a great week!

We only had one post from Holly about getting organized.

If you’re interested in hosting WIWS or posting in our blog, please contact me!

We hope everyone had a wonderful time at Edel last weekend! I was saying prayers for each and every one of you ladies. I have loved reading the recaps and seeing the pictures. Hopefully someday I can join all of you!

Otherwise, have a wonderful week!

Sooo, I failed miserably at getting this scheduled before I left for a mini-vacation this weekend. I apologize for the complete lateness!

It’s so good to be back at WIWS! It’s been a busy summer and I haven’t been able to host as much as I would like, but things are winding down so I hope to be back to hosting


Today’s photo is a quick snap. I was running behind, we needed to be there early – not a good combination! But here it is anyways. :)


Skirt and cardi – Gordman’s

Shoes – can’t remember but probably Yellowbox

White shirt – a relic from my dresser

Link up your outfits – I can’t wait to catch up with all of you!

Happy Sunday everyone! We had two posts this week. Thursday, Elizabeth wrote about Summer Reads. Friday, Holly wrote about staying faithful through the busy seasons. Check them out if you haven’t yet!

Elizabeth is going to be hosting WIWS this week! I’ll have her take it away.


This dress!  I talk a lot about how much I love dresses but a dress like this stands in a class all its own. This sort of dress is one that you put on and then immediately feel elegant and put together. Which is perfect for someone who finds themselves rushing as often as I do.

My Mom originally bought me this dress at Burlington Coat factory for just $15.00! I had needed something to wear to a wedding. A style and a price like that just cannot be beat, lucky me.

Also to talk about the style. This dress has a fit that is just about universally flattering and the length is modest two! I call it a win-win.

This dress perfect because I love to know that I can thoughtlessly throw it on and not worry about how I look at all.
Do you have any dresses like that?
The outfit details
Dress: Burlington
Shoes-thrifted $3
Clutch: flea market $5

Happy Sunday everyone! It was a beautiful morning near where I live. My dad is in town for the weekend and we’re playing in a golf tournament together later today!

Monday, we had a post from Elizabeth about trying a new style. Her dress she showcases is beautiful!

Friday, we had a post from Holly about dressing for Mass. How fitting for this blog!

I have a little challenge for you this week. Find a few blogs (new or old) and comment on them. Sometimes I feel like a lurker on my Feedly where I read blogs and don’t actually comment on the blog. So, find a few blogs and make a new friend!

I forgot to take a picture today, but this is what I’m wearing again:

Dress is from Ann Taylor Loft. Sweater from JCPenny. Shoes aren’t pictured, but they’re from DSW!

Have a wonderful week!

Dressing for Mass

Written by Holly

Since Fine Linen and Purple is the home of What I Wore Sunday, it seemed an appropriate place to discuss a couple of articles that I ran across this week. I love the WIWS (which I haven’t been able to be host of lately because WEDDING SEASON! Can’t wait to get back to it!) series – and it’s actually how I discovered this wonderful blog that I am now blessed to contribute too. I think it’s a great outlet for women to share style tips, get outfit ideas, and figure out together what is appropriate to wear to Mass if they have any doubts. I’ve made some fabulous (and well-dressed!) friends here, and learned so much. I don’t believe we are putting too much emphasis on clothes, I believe that we are putting the emphasis on dressing nicely for church because Jesus is important, and it is a sign of respect. I also believe that some Sundays life is crazy, and you grab whatever is clean and most presentable and wear that and God understands! Life is unpredictable and things don’t always fall neatly into place.

I ran across two different articles this week with differing points of view on this subject. They are here and here.

A little more food for thought if you wish – Jennifer Fulwiler’s take on WIWS is here. and Kathryn Whitaker’s is here.

I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject, so talk to me in the comments! :)
