What I Wore Sunday

by Shannon


Actually, it's what we wore on Sunday. Ryan and Cruncher wanted in on the action, as today was the first Sunday of Advent, and they both wore purple (yes, on purpose). Here are the gentlemen:


We didn't take the picture fast enough for Cruncher, who put on his slippers as soon as we walked in the door.

Cruncher:
Suit: Macys (Actually two different ones. The vest and pants are from last year's Christmas suit, and the shirt and tie are from this Easter's suit. Cruncher put it together this morning. I didn't know a 5-year-old boy could care so much about how he looks.)
Slippers: Target

Ryan:
Shirt: Macys
Tie: Macys
Pants: Gap
Shoes: Target

I usually only allow myself to wear pants to Mass if I have a "good" reason (i.e. feeling icky, status of the laundry, etc.). Today's excuse: I shopped for Advent and Christmas supplies and gifts from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. yesterday, and boy are my dogs tired! Any of the shoes I thought I could wear without pain this morning were the ugly kind that needed pants to cover them up. So, I wore this:


Deets:
Earrings: Victoria Townsend, Macys
Gold sweater: Old Navy
Wool houndstooth sweater: vintage
Bow brooch: vintage
Watch: Fossil
Pants: Old Navy
Boots: Target

It's my first week, so I forgot to take detail shots. I'll get closer crops on accessories next time.

Funny thing is, I found myself less comfortable in these pants than I am in a skirt and tights. I shoulda just worn the clunky boots with a skirt and called it a day. Wouldn't be the first time.

Oh, and here's a picture Cruncher took of us together. Looks like we need to let him practice before the family get-togethers this month.

    1. Thanks, Deme! I found that sweater for $3 at a flea-market-type store. It was a day of great deals.

    1. Thanks, Martha! I've kept it up for the last year, but I tote a new inspiration picture every time I go for a trim. Last appointment, I brought a picture of Audrey Tautou. I'm trying to get some length so the curl shows through.

  3. What a handsome family! And the photo setting intrigues me; I'd love to see how you styled the rest of your room.

    1. Lizzie, there's not much else in there, really, and it's all up in the air right now. The full-size bed is against the wall length-wise with a king-side headboard against the wall (fake daybed). The fourth wall is a closet with curtains instead of doors. I'm actually planning on tearing that room apart after I stop taking in visitors every weekend for the next month.

  4. I love your vintage sweater. Your hair+glasses are pretty precious too! I've thought of including my hubs in on the fun... but it would essentially be deja vu every week. Snazzy family!

    1. As an unspoken rule, I almost always wear something vintage. Now the rule is spoken.

  5. How fun! Y'all look great! Maria wore a purple dress, and was a little disheartened when she saw me in a brown one. I just said I'd have plenty of chances to wear violet before the end of Advent. And I'll make it up to her by wearing rose on Gaudete Sunday :)
