We’re all back in the Commonwealth and enjoying the long weekend by doing what we do best: absolutely nothing! Well, that’s not totally true. I was able to slip out yesterday for a lunch/shopping date with my friend Melissa and while we were at the Gap, I snatched up this dress for a song. At first I wasn’t interested but Melissa urged me to try it on. Always try things on, my friends, it’s the only way to make sure things don’t look horrible on you. I was sure this would look bad on me because it’s basically a big sweatshirt with a drawstring waist but, low and behold, it is inexplicably flattering. Also inexplicable, the zippers on the sides. Rest assured, modesty police, the inexplicable zippers remained zipped for Mass. Most importantly, it’s really really ridiculously comfortable. Since it was such a steal ($17) and so comfy (see previous sentence), Melissa got one for herself as well in gray. Full disclosure, if we were featured in an Us Weekly “Who Wore It Better” column, Melissa would win. Every time.
SK is also wearing a comfortable church outfit which was a gift from my Aunt Elizabeth. It’s a Tea Collection jersey knit little dress with striped sleeves. It’s great because she can wear it as a dress to Mass with little tights or with leggings during the week. Come to think of it, the same goes for my dress. Yay for versatility!
Before all you seasoned Moms out there warn me of the dangers of wearing sparkly, rattly, jangly, super fun jewlery around your 9 month old, let me assure you that my perfect little angel did not play, tug, eat, jangle, and/or untie the bow in the back during the Nicene Creed. Oh no she did not!
For more “holy attire” (I know I’m not the only one who caught that today!) head on back to Fine Linen and Purple.
