What I Wore Sunday, vol. 7

The other day, I had a startling realization.  I, mother of 5, homeschooler, chicken wrangler, did not own a single ankle-length denim skirt.  Impostor!

So I got one.

Rocked it out Advent Style this morning.  Why yes, the priest and I did match perfectly.  Thanks for asking.

Homeschooling mom uniform style lengthy-rific denim skirt- Gap via Goodwill
Purple-tastic halter-ish top- that fake Forever 21 store where I got the grey peep-toes
Mustard cardi- Mossimo via Goodwill
The Boots (my precious, precious friends)-Croft and Barrow via Kohl's
Signature chandelier earrings- old school.  (My Bollywood obsession has been in effect since before the word Bollywood existed)
Random shot of shirt color to make three pics for collage
Oh no you DI'INT!
Oh yes I DID.
Supah-star!

  4. The last shot looks like one of the stand-in refs when the strike was on... or cheerleading for an as-yet not well-funded football team :-)

  5. A front slit long denim skirt ~ score!
    Great outfit, as usual!

  6. Denim skirts for the win! I, homeschooling mother of 4 (with 1 on the way, so 5 really), also don't own such a skirt. Mostly because I'm still in my black yoga pants phase. For shame. Will have to rectify the situation!

  7. Your door - is that a back door or front door - looks so so Adventish!

  8. I love the mustard cardigan and the ruffles on your shirt- you pull it off far better than I could!

  9. I was skeptical when you said you were rocking a denim skirt. But ah, you were. I like.

  10. Can I just say that I love you? not in any sort of wierd uncomfortable way, but in the you-always-manage-to-make-me-laugh-and-drool-over-your-outift-at-the-same-time sort of way. Seriously.....mustard, purple, jeans, pre-bollywood bollywood earrings and boots. love. it. all.

  12. I may have to try the Superstahhhhhhhh pose. I actually like the purple and yellow!

  14. Mary Katherine Gallagher as your sign off...you genius.

  15. I just love everything about the outfit--and your poses! Everyone who owns chickens and home schools HAS to have a skirt like this, I agree.
    Great outfit and post--very liturgically correct :)

  16. Purple and gold...didn't think it was Mardi Gras quite yet. Oh right, mustard! Not gold. My bad. Very nice! Glad you're embracing you true denim ankle-skirted self.

  17. Sorry, but I still gotta call ya out as an impostor. The slit is far too high and should be in the back. You'd only pass for a rebellious homeschool teen daughter.

    Conclusion: you're cute, but still such a failure as a denim skirt wearer.;)

    1. I was going to say you can't get your Catholic homeschooling card unless it's an ankle length denim JUMPER. But, you know, I'd be happy to be mistaken for a rebellious homeschool teen daughter so just go with that Dweej.

  18. I always buy skirts like that at thrift stores and I always hate how they fit. Cute on you, though.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Cute cute cute! Now you're a card-carrying homeschool Mom ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. AaAAHHHHAHAHA. I seriously run over to your blog every Sunday now to see your hilarious pictures and descriptions. You make my day! Thanks so much for participating every week :-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh Dweej. You certainly are a super star!

    ReplyDelete
  22. LOVE your sassiness, and that top is fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I need to come thrifting by you. I almost never find such cute stuff!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. "Imposter..." you're hilarious. I love the purple and yellow combo!

    ReplyDelete
  25. My hubby was in the Prince of Peace household at Steubenville - and their colors were purple and gold - so whenever I see this combo, my head screams out "Go P.O.P.!!"

    You look super cute as usual, and I finally got some boots!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Rockin' "our" boots, girlfriend. I actually bought skinny jeans this weekend......and WORE them! Yeek!

    ReplyDelete
  27. LSU fan, by chance? Either way, I love the bold colors.

  28. Ok, every time I swear off more "What I Wore" posts, I read one of yours and I think, "Damn! This really IS a fun meme! Imma do it again!"

    ReplyDelete
  29. If you really want to do it right you need one of those old school tiered, faded, ankle length, denim skirts with the elastic waist. Don't ask me how I know that. ;)

  30. I have been homeschooling, and therefore wearing the required ankle length denim for many years, and I gotta tell ya, Dweej, you do NOT look the least bit "homeschool"!
    Now, add a pair of fuzzy pink crocks, knee highs and a sloppy sweatshirt to that skirt, and you will have the homeschool look DOWN!
