What I Wore Sunday: A New Spot!

Happy Feast of the Holy Family to you!

Later in the week I'll have more to share on some changes in store for the blogs in 2013, but one of the biggest changes is this here fashion post switcheroo!  

Back in October I came on as a catholic fashion blogger for the It's Fun To Be A Girl ministry (you can click on the "What I Wore" menu tab or the button on the side bar for more on that!), and for the past couple months I've been sharing these "What I Wore" type posts over on the house blog.   

My thought was to connect the fashion posts with some of my style choices within the home (i.e. my obsession with anything bearing stripes).  Not such a brilliant idea.  It only touched on the style aspect of the clothes.....I felt a little cramped talking modesty and new feminism on a DIY house blog.

I think I'll have a little more breathing room over here and hopefully be motivated to post more often on both modest style and faith/family!  I moved the gallery page to this blog.  You can find it under the "What I Wore" tab on the menu bar.  All the links to old outfit posts are there, but still hosted on Fresh Coat Of Paint.  Any future outfit posts will call Crinion Clan home from now on.

So let's get to it!

This was another week where a summer maxi came to the rescue.  I love this dress because it came with a built-in even though it's a summer dress, it definitely has some weight to it.  And really, is there anything more comfortable than a maxi?  

In an effort to do my part in reducing the get-out-the-door-on-time stress in the mornings, I'm trying to shower at night.  It was a late one though and I was too tired to bust out the blow dryer and curling iron.  So it's big, au natural hair around here today.

And it's still pretty darn cold around here, so I wore a pair of grey leggings and my tall riding boots under the dress.

Of course, this whole outfit was buried under gloves, scarf and jacket.   And can you smell my perfume wafting through your computer screen?  That would be "Ode to Bacon".  The Mister finds cooking bacon to be therapudic, and standing in the cloud of his sizzling wake means bacon smell is surely permeating every thread of these here duds. 

The rundown...

Dress & Leggings:  Old Navy clearance
Cardi:  Target, old.
Belt:  Came with another top
Boots:  Marshalls
Earrings:  The Limited

Hope you all had a great weekend!  Catch more Mass finery over at the Fine Linen And Purple party.
