What I Wore Sunday- vol. tres

Hello, everyone clicking over from Fine Linen and Purple
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my mediocre outfit this week! 

I feel this week's edition is pretty lacklustre. It really is just a plaid shirt, with a granny cardigan thrown overtop because I felt a plaid shirt was definitely not classy enough for Mass, and I was freezing. Actually, now that I look at the pics this outfit reminds me of what Anne Perkins seems to wearing a lot  of these days on Parks and Recreation. I personally prefer her cute patterned dresses and blouses with skirts but I'm going to say I was going for the "Anne Perkins" look this week anyway. 


And it was one of those weeks where I had to use dry shampoo and throw things around out of my closet. With it being so awfully cold out we have to get the kids ready about 5 hours before Mass, but somehow I always end up leaving about 3.5 minutes to dress myself. Which was poor planning on my part for this blogging thing! 

Also; I'm sporting another pair of stretchy, preggo-friendly-but-not-super-cute jeggings this week. Riveting stuff.

But here's my exciting contribution for this week:


I bought a new coat! Its camel, wool, real fur (take that!), and cute? 
I always question major clothes purchases I make by myself while pregnant. As soon as I'm not pregnant I realize things I bought are hideous and no one wanted to say anything. So hopefully this coat is a pass? I'm also sadly going to fit in it for another two and a half hours, but luckily for me winter lasts but 10 months a year in blissful Alberta so I'm sure I'll get some wear out of it before its out of style. 

Another winter Mass beginning and ending in darkness on a Saturday night. At least tonight it was fitting for Advent. It was also -15 going to Mass with a windchill of -abillion with snowfall of some sort. This winter is feeling long already so I hope it warms up for Christmas! 

Happy Advent everyone, and thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love your coat. I'm not opposed to real fur, but I prefer certain means of obtaining said fur over others. I wouldn't like to buy trapped fur, for example. Vintage fur has a green light from me, since it's clearly not going back on a live animal any time soon.

    I also like your hair up a lot! Have a happy Sunday!

    1. Thanks Kinsi! Surprisingly that fur is crazy cozy, and I like it way more than I thought it would!

  2. I wear SO MUCH plaid. It's my favorite thing, and I don't even bother to try to 'dress it up' with a sweater. I think the way you paired them is super cute. :)

  3. That coat is fabulous! A quality coat like that is a good investment. I always tell myself that but I always shy away from getting a new coat year after year because of the cost! Maybe next year :) You've inspired me with the real fur!

    1. I've broken down and accepted that I wear my winter coats more than any other item in my wardrobe. And the most people see it because you can hardly go anywhere without a winter coat for almost six months, so that has justified this purchase...in my head...and sorta to my husband! I've still got another wool coat that I like a lot and that looks dressier so I think its a good variety. And the fur is so cozy!

    1. Haha, well I can't think of a reason to not want 80 degree weather right now! But yes, isn't it crazy! I can't believe people still can wear skirts without freezing off limbs!

  12. In the words of Stacey from "What Not to Wear", "SHUT. UP." By which I mean, your look is so cute and YOU STILL DON'T LOOK PREGNANT. You're like 22 weeks or so right? I'm really envious.
