With the distracting background and crazy lighting... (wiws)

Happy First Sunday of Lent!  Happy turns a bag into a camera bag using disposable diapers day!  Happy sushi day!

1) Totally true
2) Totally gonna happen.  Mark my words.
3) Totally our annual family Valentine's day tradition, put off until today because...you know...see #1



Plain old black pants- Old Navy (the legs were a lot wider this morning, but we were running late, so I didn't have time to do unimportant things like measure and try on before I applied the leg-narrowing procedure.  So, yes, more narrowing will have to occur and soon!)

Plain old black cami- insert your favorite store here

Geometric print tunic top- Wet Seal, a gift from my sweet step-mama last year.  (I would never have been brave enough to buy this for myself, but I so love it.  She is smart.)

Chandalier earrings- in black this time.  Really, any danglies will do.

Black patent mary-jane HEELS (yes!  And I didn't slip to my wintery death!)- Fioni via the always chic and fabulous Payless Shoesource

And since it promises to someday turn spring, at which point I will retire my fluffy dress coat of winterishness for the next 8 months or so, a photo of the Eskimo-ish goodness:


Edited to add- these sunglasses are Cynthia Rowley, newly acquired from TJMaxx as my old ones FINALLY broke and I could justify a new pair.  Only $9.99 baby!  I did have to try on every single pair in the store, but it was totally worth it.  They have a good selection right now.  Go gitcha some.

In parting, this-

husband photobomb

I don't know karate, but I know cah-razy!

    1. I would never have bought the shirt myself. Thank goodness for other people's wisdom! And the coat- another gift. My uncle is a furrier (true story)...and well, you get the gist :)

  3. I was just thinking your blog needed a bit more husband photo-bombing. Loving the blouse and eskimo goodness. The club can't even handle you right now.

  4. You are gorgeous. That sunglasses/coat pic reminds of Audrey or Bo Derek. You and Bo have the same cheekbones. Google that, I'm not making it up. And I'm not that old either, I only know Bo from such films as Shawshank Redemption (she was on a poster) and Tommy Boy.

  5. The shoes are so awesome! And the earrings! I bought some red chandelier ones and haven't worn them yet. You're inspiring me. And the eskimo shot is very pretty.

    And cah-razy is pretty funny.

    And did I get this right? Did you sew this morning before church?

    2. Sounds awesome to me, considering the number of kids you have!

  6. I freakin love this outfit!!! super cute! And a girl can never own too many mary janes. you are really inspiring me to get behind my sewing machine and just do the leg thing already. But I'm a girl of the 90s and just can't bear to part with my flare!

  10. Tunics work on you tall people. I vow to never wear one again, unless I grow six inches taller ... or get pregnant.

  11. Love the shirt - your step mom does have good taste!

    And I have had Turn your back pack into a camera bag with dish clothes Day several times! I really need one of those pricey camera bag/purses...just can't really justify the cost though.

  12. When I saw you in the sunglasses, I thought it was Cari! You are so cute, Dweej!

    Also, Jessica is ABSOLUTELY old enough to know who Bo Derek is....just don't ask me who Bo Derek is.....

    Dangling earrings - fabulous ear bling...sweet!!

  19. hahaha I should have added my karate shots into my post today. Karate and bumpage is very intimidating.

    Also, it makes me sad when I hear people's sunglasses break. I am weirdly attached to mine...

    And, per usual, you look chic and wondrous!

  20. So maybe next Sunday, when I'm trying pants on for Mass and am thinking they should be slimmer, you could just hop on a plane and fix em for me - kay? Great. Then you can photobomb my WIWS shot.

    Sunglasses pic? Straight up pimpin!

  21. You look beautiful! And it looks like your husband is doing the Jolie leg. Cutting edge.

  22. That shirt is so flattering and fun, good gift! I don't know how you do any alterations before Mass??! We are running around like crazy people!

    Those sunglasses are so cute on you. And you always, always have to try them all on. Always.

  23. I'm thinking Liv Tyler on the Eskimo shot? Rock star.
