my attire on Sunday (vol. 12)
It is, indeed, that time once again!
This week was honestly one of the longest and most emotionally draining weeks in quite some time. As I’ve mentioned the last few weeks in my Quick Takes, there are loads of new opportunities in my life! All of them are great, it just means that I feel like I’m spread a little thin some days, but I’m excited to see where God is taking me!
Also…during the day on Friday I heard back from the only other publisher I submitted a book proposal! Tune into this week’s Quick Takes for another big announcement!
That being said, this edition of What I Wore Sunday may as well be called the I-made-my-own-dress but-not-really edition…
Dress: not really a dress, but I had you fooled!
Gray turtleneck: Kohl’s. Ages ago!
Blue skirt: Ross?
Belt: Ribbon that came from a different skirt
Shoes: Pewter awesomeness, Payless, $15
Earrings: Same ones as these.
I took my pictures this morning before going to Mass. Usually I take them after Mass when I am, you know, actually awake and have bothered to put my make up on. So, excuse my not-so-awake-dramatic-flair this morning!
I love making up new outfits from pieces of clothing I’ve had forever! I love the shade of blue of the skirt, it is a nice pop of color after a dreary week, weather-wise!
Also, I keep getting my weeks mixed up and I’m half convinced that Lent starts this week. Thank goodness it doesn’t, I don’t know what I’m giving up/adding this year! Last year I gave up my snooze button (which was really hard, there are a few of blogs about it!). Any suggestions for this year? What are you giving up/adding?
I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend! Be sure to check out Fine Linen & Purple for more wonderful Mass attire!

Thanks! I love making things look like a dress or connected when they aren’t =)
So cute! It def. looks like a dress. I love the sash!
Oy. I gave up my snooze button one year. That was tough for me to. Love your creative & colorful outfit!
Love, love that blue!
Very creative and very cute! love the blue…bold choice.
Long skirts are awesome. I love the color for all the reasons you’ve mentioned. Great look!
Love that shade of blue!
I love that you pieced together an outfit, and it looks completely “together”, like if it was a dress you bought that way. Very creative indeed!!
You have inspired me to find a skirt I can also use as a dress. Love the blue with the grey!
That is fabulous, I’ll be praying for you, that is a great goal!
Thanks, this was totally last minute but it works!
Thanks, it’s a fun thing to do!
Thanks, Elizabeth! That was the idea 😉
Oh my! So creative and adorable! One of my favorites of yours so far 🙂
So cute! I love the ribbon around the waist. I think for Lent I’m going to read the REST of the Bible (as in, everything in it I’ve never read before).
Love what you did with the skirt. Wish I were as creative! (Will have to tuck this away for future reference!)
Very cute! You did fool me; I thought the dress came like that!
Thanks – I love being able to stretch my wardrobe!
Thanks, I love long skirts because they can be quite versatile!
Thanks! I do a lot of random things with skirts!
Props for innovative skirt use! Looking forward to your announcement =)
Very cute! That blue is awesome!
I love your creativity in your outfit today! I’ve done a similar version of this skirt to a dress trick. It really increases your wardrobe options! 🙂
I am looking forward to reading your new news this Friday!
I’m going to try giving up fighting with Donnie! It’s going to be a tough one because I think I fight with him once a day!!!! Pray for us (and for my sanity)!
Cute (and very creative!)
