my attire on Sunday (the last one…)

What I Wore Sunday

The last one?!  Yes, the last one.  As I mentioned in Friday’s Quick Takes, I’ll be giving up the WIWS link-up for Lent.  While it has been fun, I fear that it may be turning more into my own vanity (and late nights spend wondering what outfit to wow y’all with) rather than actually preparing myself for Mass.  After Lent we shall see what happens, but for the duration of Lent I’ll be giving up the link-up.  That also means that I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to figure out today’s outfit…which would have been A LOT easier had I not gashed my toe open yesterday.  It was a ridiculous ordeal and the darn thing took over an hour to stop bleeding all over the place.  Given my dislike of blood, I feared re-gashing my toe open, and thus had to avoid heels of all kinds.  So, here is my last outfit for now (don’t worry, my toe is covered in all the photos):

The deets:
Gray sweater: An awesome store in Wyoming that I can’t remember the name of, $7
Teal cami: Kohl’s, $6
Skirt: Target, clearance, $10
Shoes: The same flat boots I’ve worn…a lot. I made faces back at my father.

…so I made faces back at my father.

I needed a long skirt to cover up the fact that I was wearing flats, not to mention the fact that the high isn’t above freezing here.  I’m annoyingly stubborn when it comes to wearing skirts and dresses to Mass.  It is quite rare that you’ll find me in pants for a Sunday Mass.  I don’t think there is anything at all wrong with wearing pants to Mass (especially if you are, you know, a guy), but I find joy in looking girly for my main man Jesus!

Also, in case you missed it, I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a hangout with three other Ignitum Today columnists on Friday night.  We spent some amazing time talking about the New Evangelization and how to engage in it.  We had a blast and had some truly awesome discussion!  Be sure to check out the video below, or at least save it forever because it is full of awesome tidbits like Ed‘s quote, “When I eat a hot dog, I don’t want to become a hot dog.”  Among other brilliant thoughts!

    Thank you, I will be doing the same.

    That is exactly why this week was hard, I usually wear heels with a long skirt so that I *don’t* trip over it! Thanks for the kind words, I hope your Lent is blessed and fruitful as well!

    Thanks! It doesn’t really hurt, I’m just afraid of cutting it open again!

    Thanks, Kathryn! Lent is such a wonderful time for quiet and reflection and I’m very much looking forward to it! May God bless your Lent as well!

    That sounds awesome and those all sound like great ideas, especially giving up the kneeler at Mass! I’ll be praying for you during Lent =)

    Amanda – good for you on deciding what works best for you preparing for Mass and getting the most out of the liturgy. You will be missed. I wish you a blessed Lent. BTW…not a fan of maxi skirts for myself. I always trip on them. LOL! You look great and I love the detail on your sweater. Lovely.

    Super cute! Love the sweater and I hope your toe feels better soon!

  8. Kathryn Whitaker on February 10, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    You’re going to be missed, Amanda! But, Lent is a great time to purge and reflect. Sounds like you have some great things in store for your 40 days.

    I must say that I have never done WIWS before, but was thinking of starting soon. I will also add that giving WIWS up during Lent is a very good and cool idea. My husband laughs a little because I cannot seem to give up food (because I barely eat anything) so I normally will try to give up things such as: secular books, the kneeler at Mass, television, or something. I am hoping to write a blog entry soon about what I will be giving up for Lent and my ideas/advice about Lent from a “baby” Catholic’s view.

    God bless

    Thanks! This long skirt is way better in the spring/early summer. It is really light weight and comfy, I just bought it a size too big since it was on clearance and the size gets annoying from time to time!

    I snapped this week’s picture and instantly put on jeans. As soon as I left the house I remembered how much I actually don’t like wearing that skirt hardly ever, but especially in the winter. It took all I had to actually take the picture since all I wanted was to be done with that blasted skirt!

    I need a maxi. You make it look so cute!

    I think my biggest excuses for not posting with WIWS every week are:
    1) No one needs to see what I wore to Mass… even Jesus. Sorry Jesus 🙁
    2) I don’t even think to take a picture. Like I seriously put on clothes, go to Mass, and come home and put my pajamas right back on.
