What I Wore Sunday {32}

"It feels like Thanksgiving back home out there today," Matt remarked this morning. And it does, which means we'd better enjoy the relative warmth while it lasts: a year ago today, snow fell and didn't melt until the following May! Right now, though, we are enjoying mid-40s; it even slipped above 50 yesterday afternoon, and I happily shed my jacket. Time enough for those soon.

Little Bear was a crazy nap-avoiding child yesterday, so we let him sleep in this morning and went to a later Mass. Having a slow, relaxed morning was nice, but it was a shock to finish breakfast after we got home and realize that the day was already half over. He was happy to go down for a nap this afternoon, so hopefully Matt and I will be able to finish up the last few chores on our weekend list.

Silk/cashmere sweater: thrifted
Microsuede skirt: Sears
Brown pumps: garage sale

I wish the photo was sharper and I could show you the detail on the sleeves! The lace flows seamlessly out of the sweater, and it looks like it bells out but it's actually slit, so it lays like a normal sleeve if my arm is straight down but falls outward when I move my hands. Little Bear was fascinated with them.

Tonight we are trying out this Walk-Away Roast from Martha of Romancing Reilly, with a two-pound moose top round. It sounds good, and I'm always looking for ways to simplify dinner prep; being able to turn the oven off and let the residual heat cook the roast sounds like a great idea!

Have a lovely Sunday evening, and don't forget to check out everyone else linking up with Fine Linen and Purple!


  1. Beautiful sweater! Don't you love the stuff you can find at the thrift store!?? Stopping by from FLAP. Have a blessed week!

    1. Thank you! Thrift shops are my favorite place to shop; you never know what treasures you'll find.

  2. Thank you for posting a modest outfit! The green skirt is such a lovely color and length!

  3. Oooh, I'm a bit jealous of your cashmere & silk sweater. :-)
