So, this week's Mass outfit...
Got thrown together at the last minute. I've never worn this combo before but I think I kinda like it.
Skirt: Thrifted ages ago in a land far far away. Pittsburgh, actually. St. Johns Bay brand. Very unexciting except for the fact that when I wore this same skirt a few months ago I had to wear a belly band to keep it shut. Not so today! Woot for finally dropping some postpartum chocolate binge poundage!
Shirt: Banana Republic via Goodwill.
Cardigan: Jones New York quarter length tee hastily altered to be a cardigan. I just cut it up the middle and didn't even bother to hem the rough edge. I heart jersey material.
Shoes: Thrifted at the St. Vincent de Paul store here in town. I love that place. Sometimes they have really great stuff...but most of the time they have half-used bottles of hair gel. Finding the good stuff takes some serious dedication. I love a challenge.
Necklace: Teething Bling. Because going to Mass with a 7 month old absolutely requires a toy that cannot be thrown underneath pews.
Bedhead and utter lack of makeup: courtesy of waking up at 6:54 to go to the 7:30am Mass. The good news is, we made it! Before the entrance hymn, even. The bad news is there were some sacrifices, like breakfast and shaving my legs.
CJ: Points added for getting excited for "peace time", as he calls giving the sign of peace, and general cuteness. Points taken away for tearing a page in the hymnal, taking Noni's toys, and general orneriness. B-
Noni: Points added for showing interest in the Transubstantiation. Points taken away for sucking on the pew in front of us to make farting noises during the homily. B-
Retention of material by the parentals: 8%
Sadly, this is better than normal. Next week I am going to shoot for the stars and go for 9.5%.
Right now the kids are napping and Nemo went into work for a few hours. I have been trying to finish watching The Avengers all week and TODAY IS THE DAY.
Be sure to see some more Sunday best over at Fine Linen and Purple.
