What I Wore Sunday

2 Dec

I’ve been loving the “What I Wore Sunday” linkup over at Fine Linen and Purple the last few weeks and I’m finally participating today!

I love dressing up for Mass. Churches often pride themselves on having a casual, come-as-you-are-(even-if-that-means-you’re-wearing-too-tight-jeggings-and-an-ill-fitting-sweater) attitude, and while it’s great (and right) to encourage holier interior participating in Sunday worship, I’ve found that it really doesn’t hurt to put a little bit of effort into your outer appearance as well. You’d dress up if the President invited you over for dinner, right? Well, Jesus invites you to Mass every week. It only seems right to me to make an effort in how I look, while trying my best to prepare spiritually and not to judge anyone else on their attire.

So, here’s what I wore:


The deets: (Does anyone say that anymore? No?)

Top: Ann Taylor (Remember when you lived at home and your mom bought your clothes? I miss that.)

Skirt: J.Crew (via Goodwill. BOOM! Thrifted.)

Shoes: Gianni Bini

This was also the first time I’ve pulled out my Spanx since before I was pregnant, and I felt so great that I didn’t even feel bad about a trip to Shipley’s Donuts after Mass. Oops!

Other highlights from the weekend:

  • Date night at Genghis Grill
  • Progress on my quilted tree skirt
  • Lighting our first Advent wreath candle (we’re not moving for the first time in three Advents! Yay!)
  • Lots of time spent with Charles (who’s not studying for an exam right now! Yay again!)
  • Finding out Vandy’s going to the Music City Bowl and locked down Franklin with another contract! (Triple yay!)

Happy Sunday!

    GREAT outfit, that skirt is gorgeous! I totally use the word “deets” a lot! =)

      Why thank you! And I’m glad I’m in good company with my “deets” usage. I’ll keep it up for the next decade and totally embarrass my kids in front of their friends.

    I love your points about dressing up for mass and your skirt! I have the same one in a bright coral color from the clearance rack at J. Crew Factory (that’s pretty amazing that you found yours at goodwill!)

      Thank you! I just discovered that the mall near me has a J.Crew Factory store. See you at the clearance rack? 🙂

    That is a super cute outfit. I love how classy it is. The detail on the neckline is great.

    You look adorable, Erica! So glad I found your blog through this linkup, and I am obsessed with your skirt! I live in an area far, far away from any J. Crew action, so the thrift pick’ns are slim…you are lucky =)

      Well, the feeling is mutual! I’m loving your post on the engagement/advent comparisons.

    Such a pretty, classic outfit. Your hair is awesome, too!

    What a lovely blog…happy Advent!

    The outfit is great, but the insight is even better! (and one I used at ncregister.com, “I wouldn’t go to the White House for dinner with the President in … “rags”, so why would I go to the feast of Heaven and Earth to meet my Savior dressed that way?”) Glad I’m not as alone in my thoughts as I sometimes feel.

    Aww, you have such a great smile, Erica! This photo is adorable and I am a huge fan of your skirt and the details on the neckline!
