What I Wore Sunday: Volume 109

What I Wore Sunday linkup

Happy Sunday! Sorry this is up so late! We have Melody hosting this week and I’ll let her introduce herself!

~~~

Thanks so much to Fine Linen and Purple for having me host this week! My name is Melody and I blog over at Melody’s Harmonies. I’m married to a wonderful geeky beer-loving student husband and I work as an Administrative Assistant in Property Management. In my free time, I read, bake, decorate and try to be the oh so domesticated housewife.

Yesterday, December 6th was the Feast Day of St. Nicholas. You may also know him as Santa Claus! St. Nicholas was a 4th century Greek Bishop who cared for the poor, gave gifts, loved children and punched a heretic.

There are all sorts of great ideas on how to incorporate St. Nicholas into your family’s celebrations and how to do the whole St. Nick vs. Santa Claus thing. Luckily we don’t have to deal with that just yet as we have no children, however I’m keen to make sure we still celebrate these important feast days of the church. Since this was our first year celebrating we decided to start small with the most well known tradition for celebrating the Feast of St. Nicholas – leaving our shoes out for St. Nicholas to fill with goodies! St. Nick will then fill your shoes with coins, and other treats/presents, especially ones that encourage us to think about the real reason for the season: the birth of Christ.

If you haven’t already, I highly recommend celebrating the Feast of St. Nicholas! If you missed it yesterday and have young children (who won’t know any different) then there’s no reason why you can’t celebrate another day during advent and then pick it up next year!

If you need a few ideas for St. Nicholas gifts, I put together a few for you:

The True Saint Nicholas

Saint Nicholas: The Real Story of the Christmas Legend

The Baker’s Dozen

The Miracle of St. Nicholas

Nicholas: The Boy Who Became Santa

Saint Nicholas and Angel

Pyjamas

Slippers

Chocolate St. Nicholas

Chocolate Coins

And now unto the main event: what I wore Sunday!

Its winter and I’m in Canada so usually my outfits look like this:

Coat: Old Navy
Hat & Scarf: Thrifted

But sometimes in mass my winter gear comes off and there’s a pretty outfit underneath!

Boots: Naturalizer (which you can’t see in either picture – sorry!)
Earrings: So old I do not know where they came from but they are my favourite!

Thanks so much for having me! Please pop over and visit me at Melody’s Harmonies or you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!

What I Wore Sunday: Volume 107

What I Wore Sunday linkupHappy Sunday everyone! Sorry for the late post (was traveling from the other side of the state today and failed to schedule it. I did take a picture today, but it wasn’t as good as the professional ones we had taken yesterday (and I happened to wear the same exact thing anyway.. so why not include my husband and dog in it?)

IMG_1792Coat: Target
Pants: Kohls
Boots: Kohls
Sweater: Old Navy (black and grey striped sweater)
Scarf: Oiselle

We had a great time taking family pictures and it snowed where we were getting our pictures done! It was about 45 minutes north of where we live and there was at least 4 inches on the ground! Surprisingly, we didn’t get any here, but it made our pictures that much better!

Have a wonderful week!

Hi Everyone! I apologize for the lack of posts the last few weeks, it’s been crazy in my household and I’m finishing up the last few weeks of my Master’s degree so blogging took the backburner as I finish that up! The good news for you is that we have some awesome guest posters the next few weeks so you should be excited about that!

 I will post my real picture later, but I wanted to share a picture of my husband and my brother that I especially enjoyed from a wedding we just attended.

I hope you all have great weeks! Happy day after All Saints Day!!
