It’s been a little while since I’ve linked up for What I Wore Sunday, and I know my readers are dying to know what this cutting edge homeschool mom has up her sleeve this week. Well, let me tell you on a scale of one to ten it’s a solid three; as in “Wow Kelly, you look really meh.” I’d been seeing some other ladies rocking a long sleeve shirt under a warm weather dress and I was all, “That looks totally doable.” And I busted out my Easter dress and a shirt, layered up and got the opinions of the household.
Dress: Burlington Coat Factory
Shirt: Lands End
Necklace: It’s a French coin with a chain through it. Snazzy Christmas gift from my sister.
Addie gave it a thumbs up. Edie gave it a thumbs up. Byron gave me one thumb up and one down. Fulton gave me a thumbs down. Teddy burped and Tony just said I’m beautiful no matter what I have on…but that maybe the shirt didn’t really work with the dress…but I’m still very beautiful and whatever I want to wear looks great on me always. (What can I say, the man learns quickly.)
I consulted with one of my most fashionable friends at Mass who would never, ever give me a thumbs down but only gently suggest that she might have paired a sweater with it instead. Dang it, I know she’s right! When the only two thumbs up are from your daughters, who still dress like this:
You have to take the favorable reviews (thumbs?) with a grain of salt. (And then wonder, where their offbeat sense of style comes from???)
Tomorrow, it’s back to the old reliable denim jumper. Maybe next week I can pull off a style that doesn’t pair as poorly as a fine red wine and a hot dog.
For ladies who will truly inspire you to look good, be sure to swing by Fine Linen and Purple.
