What I Wore Sunday: One of My Faves

 I missed What I Wore Sunday last week.  I actually wore pants since I had finally found a decently priced pair of slacks that fit perfectly.  My first pair of slacks post-pregnancy.  I was excited to show them off but the day got away from me and no picture was taken.  This week, I'm back to dresses.

 Do these boots look familiar?  I wore them here. And here. And here. My mustard cardigan can be seen in this pic and this one. And this exact same outfit (sans jacket) was worn on my first day of school. I'm a normal girl, I don't have an endless wardrobe.  And I like to rewear those outfits that just make me feel so pretty and that I get compliments on.  This is one of those outfits.

Dress: Dress Barn | Cardigan: Dress Barn
Jacket: Target | Boots: Big Buddha

After Mass, we had some family pictures taken today.  Combined Lucia's first birthday pics, family pics, Christmas pics (that obviously aren't making it in Christmas cards).  I didn't wear this outfit, but hopefully you'll eventually see the photos (I know they are going to come out just perfect - if you need a suggestion for an awesome photographer in northern CO, let me know!) and the other (two) outfits I wore today.

I also changed into my pajamas early tonight and we watched "Home Alone" and ate popcorn after Lucia went to sleep.    David and I fill each other's stockings each year and I was so excited to find "Home Alone" and "Home Along 2" for a good price and include them in his stocking two years ago (our first married Christmas - aw!).  This year, I am so behind on Christmas shopping!  Good thing Thursday is my last day of work until after Christmas break.

I've been so busy lately that the blog has been put a bit on the backburner.  I do have a few posts in the making, including one on our little Catholic celebrations this month (Saint Nicholas's Feast Day and Saint Lucia's Feast Day) and have some big blog things cooking, including a new blog design AND new name (I haven't been a newlywed for a while now)!  Probably a new web address to go along with the new name as well, so keep an eye out!

I'm linking up to Fine Linen and Purple's What I Wore Sunday linkup.  Check it out for more church attire inspiration.


  1. Home Alone is a classic. :) I love that dress! The whole outfit is tres cute.

  2. I absolutely LOVE the purple coat and the yellow sweater under. Those boots add just the right amount of cozy and chic. Great job!

  3. I love the detail on your dress...and really I just love the whole outfit!! :)
