What I Wore Sunday

18 November 2012

"I definitely got a good one." - Simon

Here's the best of the goods which is obviously great.

I'm becoming a bit of a black widow that isn't actually a widow and is obviously with child because all I want to do is wear black, black, and more black with a splash of brown and neutral to keep things spicy. We went to the playground after Mass to try to squeeze allllll the energy out of the kids so that they would take the best naps of their lives and Simon gave me an up-down and had lots of questions about ladies fashion and the differences between dresses, tunics, and shirts. I think he concluded that I was wearing an inappropriately short dress that should be marketed as a shirt but gets away with the old "tunic" excuse. He would be right except that he's wrong because modesty leggings are involved.

We were 10 minutes late for a 30 minute Mass and after communion but before the final blessing the huffy lady behind me gave me a little shoulder tap and not-whispered that a runaway fruit snack had fallen out of my pocket and onto my (her word!!!!) "heiny". I don't know if I was more embarrassed for myself and my sticky heiny or for her 64-year-old self for tattle tailing on a one-year-old's future afternoon snack.

it's all in the 'tails:
tunic: Gap Maternity
leggings: Old Navy
boots: Famous Footwear

Mass Behavior Grades:
Julia: C- (complained that every part of her body hurt - even her dress)
Bash: D+ (pretended to seize for the majority of the celebration)

Linking up with the fine ladies of Fine Linen and Purple ... again.



I need to stop posting at night ... I sound so angry.

  1. A black widow? Hardly. Look at all that color in your scarf - you're practically Rainbow Brite. And good on you for removing the rogue fruit snack from your 'heiny' prior to the photo op...or nice strategic angling. Either way, you look adorable and I'm a big fan of black with brown boots!

  2. I definitely need to try the tunic look. Only problem is - I don't have a tunic. I bought one at Target two weeks ago and had to take it back because it had pockets which were strategically placed such that it made my saddle bags look like they were stuffed full! EGADS!

    And yes, I typically buy things without trying them on and then having to return them. I much prefer that to staring at my naked self under the bright white lights of the Target dressing room.

    I love your outfit!

  6. I'm totally digging the boots. Pairing brown and black scares me, but you always seem to pull it off nicely. Maybe I'll take the leap one of these days.

  8. Well, at least you look gorgeous!!! And I seriously would LIVE in nothing but black but my husband begs me to wear color so I'm trying to keep my wardrobe colorful. But I feel so awkward in color, I feel far more outgoing and confident in black!

  9. Psh you don't look like you're going to a funeral. But the outfit is great and you are ever so stylish ;)
    Thanks for participating again! We love having you!

  10. Well, I think you rock the tunic look! If I try the tunic with leggings/tights look, I fall into the embarrassing "I think she forgot to wear pants" category. And that is multiplied by a million when pregnant! You have a rare and enviable talent for pulling off, well, hard to pull off looks!

  11. I tried a tunic and leggings for the first time last week. My husband loved it, but I felt a bit awkward and kept pulling the hem of the tunic down. My legs felt naked.

    We said "heiny" as kids....I still catch myself saying it to my kids.

    My daughter, now 3, used to tell us her hair hurt at the most inconvenient times, like during Mass. She'd point to the ends of her locks and moan pitifully.

  12. I'm too tall for tunics, I think. I would love to wear them, and I think they look cute and modest on everyone else (especially you!) but every time I put one on I look like I am about to go work a corner.

  13. Guurl, I can sympathize. Sometimes easy and no-brainer doubles as faux-chic dressing. Brava. I applaud your ruse.

  14. I love black and brown together! Nice combo, Grace.

    And, I also use the word "heiny." Does that mean I'm really 80-years-old? I blame my years of teaching high school for aging me prematurely.

  15. Talk about being a skinny minnie. If I still look as good as you in my third tri, I will declare victory.

  16. She said HEINY???? 200 years off purgatory right there.

  17. First, you say it like black is a bad thing. Embrace your dark side, sister, black is our forever friend and makes the fruit snack really POP on your heiny.....LOL!!! It's going to be so fun to be "elderly" and lose the filter.

  19. "Julia: C- (complained that every part of her body hurt - even her dress)" LOL. I know it must've been hell to you but it makes my day better to hear such genius.

  20. I love how you grade your children's Mass behavior. My husband and I might have to start doing that on Sundays too.

  21. The scarf and boots look great with the black! It cracks me up how confused guys get over women's clothing terms. And to the fruit-snack whisperer- would "backside" not have been clear enough terminology? :)
