You know what's apparently super-de-duper hard? Harder than riding horses or doing gymnastics or dividing fractions in your head? Holding a camera still.
"Tuck your elbows in!"
"Smash the camera against your face!"
"Wait until it focuses on the right place before you take the shot!"
On deaf ears, I tell you. On. Deaf. Ears.
For your viewing enjoyment, another blurry installment of What I Wore Sunday courtesy of my second child:
Top: Sonoma (probably Kohl's) via Goodwill, which I altered yesterday using single-seam method
Cardi: Mossimo (probably Target) via hand-me-down bag
Jeans: some brand called 21 from an off-brand store at the mall in Temecula because...wait for it...my daily-wear pair of skinnies that have heretofore dominated my attire is now [insert drumroll here] TOO BIG!
Now let me point out what you're already thinking...same color scheme and earrings as two weeks ago. Same boots as every dang week. Same cardi as week 2, just in a different color. I started feeling lame. Like "okay, people are gonna start getting bored". But then I realized that this is part of the "secret" of getting to Mass on time(ish) with kids and not looking, therefore not feeling, therefore not acting, like an encrusted turd: A system!
I've got my system. Cardigans to give coverage while nursing. Long tops to cover the muffin. Dark jeans (Clearly I don't subscribe to the denim is always less appropriate than any other fabric philosophy. Plus, by adhering to the clothing mores of our parish, I can draw as little attention of any variety to myself as possible.) that fit properly. Snazzy it up with a pair of earrings or a necklace to remind myself that this is my weekly date with Jesus. Voila!
Do you have a system? How about color combos you love to pair again and again?
