Weekend Wardrobe: 1st Sunday of Advent!

The weather here is kind of crazy.  Crazy good.  We've still been able to play outside without jackets and it's officially December!  I'm writing up this post in jeans and a short-sleeve tee, but this morning I was dressed for winter chill. 

Our littlest guy is finally over his stomach bug, but both boys now have a matching set of runny noses.  So, it was another week of tag-team church for the Mr. and I.    In trying to get out the door, I grabbed this scarf completely oblivious to the fact that I was coordinating for the 1st Sunday of Advent..... ahem....I mean, I totally coordinated my purple scarf for advent today! 

I used my spending money this month for the shoes and this skirt (which puts my total skirt count at two - look out now!).  I'm loving a full skirt these days - so comfy, a modest length, and hides, well, everything I might be self-conscious about :)
I'm especially a sucker for a skirt with pockets and that include their own belt - a skinny leopard print belt at that!


I've been looking for a casual ankle boot for a long time and finally settled on these bootie wedges from Target.  Mostly because I had a shoe coupon :)  But they are so much more comfortable than I thought they would be and I've been wearing them everywhere.  

And since I've been sharing a lot of dressed up for Mass outfits, here's more of an everyday one for you....and more proof that I never take these shoes off my feet. 

This sweater is warm and cozy and  looks like a granny house coat.  But I love it.  Don't judge.

The rundown...

Mass outfit:
Shirt, scarf, shoes (and maybe the tights?): Target | Belted skirt: Forever 21 |  Earrings: The Limited

Casual duds:
Sweater (2 years ago), jeans, shirt: Old Navy | Shoes: Target | Wood beaded necklace: Goodwill


Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!  I'm linking up with the ladies at Fine Linen And Purple for another "What I Wore Sunday" party - stop on by for some great inspiration!

  6. Soooo loving the booties and the skirt! Is that a recent find? It reminds me of a skirt I saw in the J Peterman catalog that hopelessly expensive. Plus the advent scarf is sooo cute!

    1. It is recent and a pretty good bargain through Forever 21! Price was $22.00 but I used a coupon code with it :)

  13. LOVE the liturgically matchiness - it was Holy Spirit inspired ;-) Skirts with pockets are the best...I need to find more of them!
    And I don't think it is a granny coat, it looks awesome and warm!

  14. Yeah, that is not a granny coat, no. It is super chic!

  15. That skirt looks awesome on you, and would look a not-hot mess on my frame. The booties are great too, so glad to hear of comfortable Target shoes...might have to snatch up a pair.

  16. I love both outfits. That skirt is perfect! I love me a comfy sweater, and I seriously doubt that anything you put on would look "granny".

    Have a great day! :)

  17. You look beautiful, Deme! Your accessories are perfect. And those boots! J. Crew makes a wedge desert boot just like yours that I've had my eye on for a few years now, but I've never been able to convince myself they're worth the hefty price tag. I think Target, by way of you, might be the perfect solution!

  18. Great outfit, but lurve the shoes especially. Have major dooka (ie lusting) after a pair like those. Will keep my eyes peeled especially after seeing you wear them so well.

  19. Deme, I love your style so much! You manage to look totally put-together and gorgeous while also being low-maintenance and affordable. Consider this girl a fan! :)

  20. Ugh, you make me want little wedge booties so badly now! I've been on the fence about the bootie trend, but this post confirms that I MUST get some.

    ReplyDelete
  21. You look great, as usual! I love your style!!!

  22. That skirt is fantastic and such a lucky find. I always have a difficult time finding skirts at Forever 21. They're either practically tunics or I'm stepping on them.
