Perhaps you’ll recall that I said throughout Lent you would find me in liturgically matchy clothes. Three out of four Sundays this is ridiculously easy for me to do. There is a lot of purple in my wardrobe, so much so that narrowing it down to three outfits for the appropriate Sunday in Advent is hard to do! Gaudete Sunday, however, is an entirely different ball of wax.
I don’t like pink. I never have. It is far too girly of a color for me. I own two pink tops and two pink cardigans, a pink skirt and no pink dresses. I still think that it too much pink! So, this Sunday, I went with a magenta colored outfit and called it pink/rose. Close enough to count, I vote!
Shirt dress: Kohl’s ($12, clearance + coupon, originally $44)
Leggings: Target ($8)
Shirt dress tie: black and white ribbons
So, there you have it. Gaudete Sunday is understood to be the rejoicing Sunday, the Sunday of hope and joy! It is a great liturgical Sunday in the year, but one of my least favorite to match for (along with the pink Sunday of Lent). So, go rejoice! Wear pink if you like! I’m rejoicing because next week I get to wear purple again!
