What I Wore Sunday: Theorized Outfit

by Shannon


Posting late again this week. Just got back from Lexington where we met Ryan's family. His mother had her ___th birthday today — congrats, Bertie! Next week, I will again post late because my bestie and I are seeing Mandy Patinkin sing — AAAAHHHHHDKAOJJHHHH!! Yes, I know what I'm wearing. Duh. I've known for weeks.

And here's what I wore today:

Wonky feet.

I've theorized this outfit before, and this is the first I've worn it together. You've seen everything but the jacket (I think).

Deets:
Cameo earrings: vintage, gift
Flower pendant: vintage, gift
Denim jacket: Riders, consignment shop in town (cropped on a normal-sized woman, but fits on me)
Gold lacy dress: Jessica Simpson, Macy's (bridesmaid dress from my sister's wedding)
Gold-studded belt: Target
Tortoiseshell watch: Fossil
Kicky boots: Anne Klein, Zappos

Eh, I'll throw in some Cruncher from this weekend, since he's the real cute one 'round these parts, and I don't have anything funny to say:


Look at that boy. Pure joy and my inspiration. I was a horrible, horrible mother this weekend. Probably this whole week. No, really, I was. When I'm sick, I lack patience with everyone around me. I'm on the tail end of The Sinus Infection from Satan, just in time. Cruncher is in desperate need of a sane mama. He was on his worst behavior today, which is probably a 6 on a scale of 10 for any other boy his age. But for our Cruncher Muncher Buncher, that's a cry for help.

By the way, if you've read this far, if there are any Texas ladies in or around Houston, hit me up. I have a high school friend down there who is looking for a good Catholic community. Thanks!

Oh, and check in with Fine Linen and Purple for more Funday fashion.

  1. Love that lace dress! And the fact that you're wearing a bridesmaid dress more than once is AWESOME!

    1. I was sooo relieved when she picked out a normal dress and not a typical bridesmaid look. I did the same for my girls. Break the wedding rules!!

  3. I like this outfit as much as I did when you theorized it.

    My own attempts to plan an outfit yesterday crashed and burned-- there's always next week.

    1. It was pretty easy to put this one together, though I'm a year late. I saw pretty much this exact outfit in the window of one of my favorite vintage shops last spring. It just took me a year to find the right denim jacket. They're all too big on me.

      Too bad about your look yesterday. Sometimes I have a hard time deciding what to wear when I'm going through bigger things.
