What I Wore Sunday (2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I was reading at 9 a.m. mass today so I set my alarm in case Mary didn't wake us up in time. But it wasn't necessary as she woke us up at 7 a.m. Peter was up late watching Formula 1 so he'll be going for a nap this afternoon!

Here is a picture of me in my greenest outfit:

I don't have a lot of green in my wardrobe, but I do have this absolutely gorgeous scarf that my mother-in-law gave me.

My dress is from Eddie Bauer (via the thrift store.) It is wool and it's so warm and lovely.
My shirt is from Ricki's.
My glorious scarf is from Indigo.

Here is a picture of Mary the Little Leprechaun:

The spectacular hat is also from my mother-in-law.

Mary's dress is very special. It used to belong to her Auntie Katie, Peter's sister, who died when she was about a month younger than Mary is now. The dress is almost 30 years old now and it is absolutely beautiful.


  1. Love your scarf. How sweet that Mary can fit into her aunt's dress. So beautiful!

  2. Your dress looks like the perfect layering item for cold Sundays. And what a touching story for your daughter's dress...

  3. I really love the shirt under the dress look! I have a black dress that is similar in style to yours that I have been wanting to try this with. I imagine Pinterest would come in handy for all the things I see that I want to try on WIWS!

  4. I love this idea, making a dress a jumper. Layering rocks! Your sweet little leprechaun is just so adorable. Oh my gracious!

  5. How special that you and Peter were able to use his sister's dress for your daughter! :)
