What I Wore Sunday: Birthday Party Extravaganza!

by Shannon

Posting late tonight because we've been traveling all weekend, for it was The First Annual Birthday Party Extravaganza! Our newest nephew (on Ryan's side) was born a week after our eldest nephew (on my side), so we traveled the triangle in about 36 hours: Louisville to Lexington to Cincinnati and back.

Birthday boys, first and third respectively.

I should get around to a better review of the full weekend (plus yesterday's fashion) in a few days.

In case you've not checked in on yesterday's post, Cruncher is all healed, as also evident in these pictures:

All this mama wanted was a decent picture of us together in our Sunday's finest, after last week's depressing events. I should crop in on one of those pictures for the adults present.

Ah, that's better. Or I guess this'll do:

That mischievous grin appeared before those other pictures were shot.

A couple more, for good measure:

Cruncher took the one on the left. He's more interested in being behind the camera than in front,
and at such a young age.

And here's what I wore:

You've seen everything but the dress before, I do believe.

Love knot earrings: Victoria Townsend, Macy's
Drape-y necklace: Consignment shop in town
Watercolor dress: H&M ($7! And my Easter dress from two years ago.)
Magical cinching belt: Target
Tortoiseshell watch: Fossil
Kicky boots: Anne Klein, Zappos

A couple of closeups, and I'm off to bed. Oh, and don't forget to check back with Fine Linen and Purple for more Sunday finery.


  1. That necklace is so, so pretty. And I love H&M (very sad that there's none near me).

  2. Blurg. Love the dress. And the family shots. HAHAHA! So funny.

  3. I love the family shots! Having a little guy moving around in them makes them so much more authentic ;-)

    That dress looks so cute on you!!

  4. I love the dress--and it's adorable with the short boots!

    Your mama looks lovely, too.

  5. Love the print on that dress! And Cruncher is such a hoot with all his poses - glad to know it doesn't get better when they get older :P Simon's corduroy blazer is pretty awesome too; my husband has been looking (not hard) for one of his own.

    1. Sounds like you were just reading Camp Patton. : ) Ryan's blazer is Ralph Lauren (I think) from Macy's, a super-awesome Black Friday deal we swiped years and years and years ago.

  6. Oh, what a cute dress! I love Cruncher's outfit-- too bad he didn't get to wear it last week. :(

    What's the nail color? I like it with the green, and even more in the picture where you have your hand on Cruncher's blue jacket.

    1. Hmm ... nail color. Well, I can't find it. I can say I don't recommend it, though. I wanted coral, and it's much too pink. Looks like a Barbie shoe from the '80s. Not so pretty up close, and it's coming off tonight. I can, however, recommend the brand. I swear by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure, topped with Sally's Insta-Dri. Nice and shiny. Lasts a few days. Dries fast with that top coat. Can't go wrong with it.

    2. Found it. Peach of Cake. Much prettier in the bottle.

    3. Oh, that's too bad. It looks nice in the pictures! I found a coral I think is okay, but it is a "jelly," so it is weirdly translucent and chips more easily. Sigh.

  7. Oh my goodness, what a drive! I'm glad you are all safe and in one piece. Also, loving the pretty fluttery sleeves you have there :)

  8. I love your family pics, and your dress + belt + necklace are perfect. (I started writing "neckless"; perhaps I should go to bed??)
