What I Wore Sunday

1. the blurry bunch
2. preparing for battle with my shield of flared nostrils and Bash's brows
3. Julia's ready for rain, Sebastian's prepared for a full blown flood


I was flying Hans Solo with the kids for Mass prep today and if the second photo is any indicator ... I was super thrilled about the process. I did manage to shoddily alter these pants while letting the whir of the sewing machine drown out the children's early morning chirps. You know that the bell means serious business when I pull out these wide leg bottoms (see photos 1, 2, and 3 for proof). I bought them when I was pregnant with Julia and never think I'll get big enough to fill them out again ... and then ... laugh laugh. Laugh.

Simon's last call weekend until January will come to a blessed close in about 90 minutes and I'm hoping these pants are roomy enough to withstand a super happy jig, endure a little tap dance, and tolerate a trip to enjoy some fine Chinese cuisine ... praise all things good and really good.

fitted in:
(altered) pants: Gap Maternity
shirt: Target Maternity
cardigan: Target
necklace: eBay - similar
shoes: Target

the kids' Mass behavior:
Julia: B- for being very good with the exception of almost successfully pulling down my pants from behind during the consecration
Sebastian: C+ for effort but confined places and spaces are just not a natural habitat for Bash these days

And despite their not stellar performances we still took them to see Santa right after Mass. We're such suckers.


p to the s ... didn't Kayla do an amazing job with the blog's new design? I don't know if she is available to do others but if you send her enough harrassy emails like I did ... she might reconsider. 

Linking up with the ladies over at Fine Linen and Purple ... you should do the same.

  3. You look super cute, Grace, but Julia takes the fashionista cake today! She should really think about starting her own fashion blog.

  4. Your hair is killer.

    Also, Kayla did an excellent job and when I was clicking around, I reread your About Me page and remembered that you have the most awesome wedding dress/veil of all time.

  8. Love the blog's new look. I have to say that your daughter's pink boots are totally stealing the show. I do like your cardi/necklace combo, and I def lol'ed when I imagined the near pantsing episode.

  10. As usual, I love all three outfits!

    I'm fairly new here but I'm sure I'm not the first person to mention that you look a lot like Sarah Jessica Parker (only much, much younger!).

  11. Clearly Gap and Target both should just pay you for this post. Truly you're stunning and the entire outfit is a win!

  12. I just love your style! So classy!

  13. Gap truly should nominate you as their preggie in chief - you look just exactly what their ads promise expectant mothers they can achieve via Gap Maternity...except you're actually doing it.

  18. So classy, Grace! Gorgeous. I think my favorite part of this is that it's December and you get to wear open-toed shoes. So jealous.

  20. Look at your cute belly! I love the outfit and the kiddies too! And the pearls make the outfit even better! Thanks for linking up with us as always!

  21. I love the ensemble today! How cute is the little belly showing. I just think pregnant women look so elegant when they accentuate their belly and you pulled it off wonderfully. How did you do your hair? It looks fantastic!

  22. You and J give us another fab Sunday. Love all three of you!

  23. Love the new blog look! I need to change mine since I haven't changed it in probably over a year. Too lazy though. I should probably wrap Christmas gifts as well. Or finish buying them. Or fold the laundry. The list goes on and ON.

    I'm glad Simon's last call weekend for a little while has ended. That def calls for a Chinese food celebration.

  24. You are way too cute! All.the.time. :) As are Sebastian and Julia!

  25. Whoa. Snazzy blog layout. I need to tell you that your pants tutorial (sharpie and all) majorly inspired me to tackle my fear of the sewing machine. I've followed that tutorial for multiple items of clothing now.

  26. blog looks cute! one of these days i need a pro to design mine.

    don't think i ever had maternity pants that fit as well as yours. next time around i'm going to try to alter maternity clothes to better fit. i don't know if you already have some, but tutorials would be helpful :)

  27. I love it! Classy biz/casual with a little peek-a-boo belly :)

  28. Grace, I see Jackie-O in these pics. Your kids are little preppies too! Lurving it.
