What I Wore Sunday-vol. 1

Pin It
Here it is--my very first post for What I Wore Sunday.  I first learned of this while we were in Germany (and not going to church...but hey--we visited enough awesome churches to count for every week we didn't go and we went to Easter Mass at Notre Dame so I think it should count for something...can you tell I have guilt?).  Since I didn't go to church, pictures of what I wore Sunday would not really be that great...

I kept meaning to jump in once were back but I never remembered to have my husband take a picture of me before I changed.  This week I remembered!  And he went into photographer mode like I was a model and took 12 pictures!
I'm really irritated at what my hair is doing here, but all 11 pictures look the same...
It's been really cold this past week in New England so I call this the "winter chic" look.
Sweater: Gap (going on 10 years old--is that sad?)
Skirt: Old Navy
Tights: Old Navy (I wish you could see the diamond pattern better)
Boots: Tundra (they have the little "fur" collar--love them!)
Socks-that-you-can't-see-so-it-doesn't-matter: Gap
Pearl earrings: Helzberg diamonds (free pair my dad got for stopping by to talk about diamonds--and they're real and 24kt gold posts)

There, that's better...
I was talking with a friend recently about how winter is more challenging for finding cute things to wear to church.  My default in the past has always just been throwing on black pants and a sweater.  I've been really trying to be more creative this winter though and I have yet to wear the same thing twice and have worn black pants only once.  I also haven't really been adding much of anything new, just shopping some old stuff I found at my parents' and discovering new combinations.  I was gathering some inspiration by looking at everyone's WIWS posts and brainstorming while we were in Germany so that has helped and I thank all of you ladies for that assistance!

  1. I have been digging a little deeper into my closet lately and mixing things up. I like being able to post different combos but I also enjoy Mass a little more when I feel "put together"... and no it is not sad that the sweater is that old. It means it is awesome! :)

    1. Thanks, Jess! Don't you feel so accomplished when you can find those new combos?

  2. What a cute picture - kudos to the photographer. Glad to see you are wearing warm boots.
    I have proof that your sweater could be 10 years old: a picture of you and Brice from January 2004 with you wearing that same sweater.
    My Sunday sweater this week was worn to Brice's Senior Night for soccer :)

  3. I am right there with you. No shopping for me. Relying on recent Christmas gifts and what I already own. It's challenging but fun, I must admit. Your looking good!

  4. It's a very cute look on you-- very polished! Nicely done! And hey, if the sweater fits, wear it! What a great investment to still love something ten years later! My default church look is usually pants and a sweater too, since we often hike a long way to Mass, but maybe I'll start putting more thought into it if I'm going to start linking to WIWS more often. :)
    All the best from the Holy Land!

    1. Thanks, Jessa! I totally understand having to adjust your look to accommodate walking, but it must be frustrating sometimes. I have had to do that sometimes and wanted to tell people, I would have worn something cuter but I had to wear comfy shoes to walk and comfy shoes look silly with skirts, etc, etc, etc...I've been enjoying the challenge I gave myself to come up with new things and I hope you do too!

  5. I get into a mode of skirt w/ tights w/ same black boots. But that's okay- so long as we feel Mass-appropriate, then we're good! Love the print on your sweater.

    Btw, I have no idea what your hair is "doing" that's bad- looks totally fine to me! :-)

    1. Thanks, Kinsi! This was actually the first time I wore the boots to church since they aren't exactly "dressy" boots but more for warmth. All but one of the women in my RCIA class wears UGGs and usually jeans every single week though so I figure I'll never be too casual in their eyes!

      Haha, and yes, there's just this little piece of hair that was kind of falling in my face, not keeping in line and not really looking on-purpose either. One of those things that probably just bothers me...Thanks for stopping by!


Thanks for visiting! I love to get comments and feedback on my posts so thanks for taking a minute to say hello!
