I feel guilty even writing this. Truly, I do. Do you know why? I never actually wore this outfit to Mass. Oh, I was going to. I really, really was. But then I didn't. You wanna know why? No? Oops, here I go anyway...
Last night, Cecilia barfed onto her bed every two hours. The first time was a surprise, so I had to change all the linens and her pajamas at midnight. But because I am old and wise, I put a towel down "just in case" it were to happen again. Which it did- four additional times. That's 2 a.m., 4 a.m., and 6 a.m. and then 8 a.m. (that last time into the potty. Aren't you thrilled with the details of my child's digestive tract? I thought not.).
Because we are kind souls, we opted to not drag the freshly barfified, fragrant toddler to church but rather to have her stay home with me and the baby while Tommy took the older 3 to our regular Mass. I planned to go to the 5:30 p.m. service at a different parish over yonder with the baby.
Well guess what? The 5:30 p.m. Mass is not AT 5:30. It is at FOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUR THIRTY. A fact I did not discover until 5 p.m. Ugh! So I have officially missed all Masses for the day.
Vomit is stupid. I HATE missing out on going to Mass ohmygosh. If I were on the twitter right now I would write #needEuchariststat or something like that. Boo.
Anyway, wanna see what I would have worn had I been proactive and confirmed the schedule several hours earlier? Shazam.
Turquoise wrap sweater- gift from my mama.
---If you are a nursing mama, get yourself one or eight of these kinds of cardigans. They are SO awesome. Built in nursing cover, yo. The regular torso part keeps the belly covered if you're lifting the shirt and you can use the long wrappy parts to cover the upper portion of your chest if baby is using your neck hole for access. Does that make sense?
Ruffle-front blouse- Ann Taylor Loft via Goodwill.
---I may have worked a magical alteration on that shirt this afternoon that you may be able to gander at in the near future over on Fine Linen and Purple. But you didn't hear it from me.
Straight leg jeans- Levi Signature via Goodwill
---I have nothing special to say about these. Just have some. All purpose.
1) Dark purple mary-jane style ballet flats- Mossimo via Target
2) Requisite cheapo dangling earrings- local cheapo jewelry mart (I love me some obnoxious earrings. You should have seen the ones I wore yesterday to Mass/friend's baby's baptism. They were enormous!)
3) Fantastic leather belt, actually being used for the intended purpose of belts- 99 cents at Goodwill
4) Close up of print on blouse (grey and yellow floral) next to the turquoise of the cardi. Me likey.
And because my husband was my photographer today and has minimal patience for blooper reels, this is all I got for ya this week...
Now go check out some holier gals who actually took their outfits with them to Mass, ya hear?
