What I Wore Sunday



As I mentioned in my previous post, I came down with something nasty and ended up getting an antibiotic from my doctor on Friday. I'm still not feeling 100%, but I feel SO much better than I did last week. I was debating whether or not I should go to Mass today (obviously I did, once I realized I was no longer contagious and I no longer had any difficulty swallowing or breathing), but I'm so glad I ended up accompanying the fam this morning. Alessandra, for the third week in a row, gets an A+ for awesome baby church behavior. She's fascinated by the stained glass, the flowers, the beautiful music, and all that keeps her happily occupied for the hour, hour and a half that we're there. Unfortunately I couldn't get a picture of her outfit today, because we were running late and by the time we returned home she was throwing a fit of epic proportions. Rest assured, it was a super cute smocked little outfit from Janie and Jack, a gift from our Auntie Judy in Milwaukee.

So! Without further ado, here is my outfit:
Dress: White House Black Market (put on your shocked face)
Shoes: Nine West
Necklace: Birthday gift from my parents


I love this dress. I bought it about...two? years ago from WHBM. I call it my "Jackie O" dress; it's perfect for Mass, brunch, an evening out, what have you. I feel like the typical 1950's Italian Catholic housewife while wearing this dress, which is just fine with me. :) 

Have a great weekend, everyone! For more WIWS, check out Fine Linen and Purple.

    1. Thanks Katie!! I LOVE their clothes. I was just telling a friend of mine that they're cute and trendy, but still age appropriate. I'm a 31-year old wife and mama; I appreciate finding a store that carries stylish clothes that don't make me feel like I'm trying to dress like a 16-year old. :)

    1. Thank you! I love the neckline as well. Only problem is it's not very convenient for nursing. Oh well, can't win 'em all!

    1. Thank you! I love wearing white dresses in the summer. I'm sure it's just my imagine in this brutal Louisiana heat, but I always feel *slightly* cooler in a white cotton dress. :)
