What I Wore #14

What I Wore Sunday linkup
 


This cold....snow?! Is not how I like to start out Spring, but here it is. Easter is one week away and I can not believe it is Palm Sunday already. It feels like yesterday I was taking our old Palms to be burned. This lent has been about growing closer to Christ and in some ways I feel like I succeeded and in other ways I still have a long way to go. For some reason a personal relationship with Christ is hard for me. Maybe that is because I am still ME centered. I would like to try to continue to be less me centered and be more Christ centered. Not only that but I see that when I am focusing more on my husband and family instead of myself everyone is happier. I don't scream at the kids as much or get mad at my husband for things that I think he should be doing...but that are actually now in my list of things to do now that I am at home full time. It seems to be a never ending process since we are all created to be a bit selfish and I am glad that we have a whole lifetime to work on things like this.

Back to talking about me....and what I wore today. haha ok wow isn't that a bit ironic after that last paragraph. I can't wait to pull my spring and summer clothes out of the bins in the basement. Yesterday was in the 60's and today in the 30's with snow!? I looked in my closet and realized I haven't worn this skirt yet so I put it on and went from there. A tank and sweater (with my favorite detail being the zipper) and my cute new high heal boots. Five min later I decided to go with the flat faux leather boots so I didn't fall or ruin the more expensive boots. Good choice. Now I need to figure out what to wear next weekend for Easter. I have all of the boys/men in my house figured out but I need to get my act together. Hopefully something will strike my fancy without having to go shopping. :) Shopping wouldn't be all bad would it?

Clothing Details:
Tank: Glamourmama
Sweater: Old Navy
Skirt: thrifted so I have no idea
Boots: Target (you can't really see them)

Aw your little one is so cute!!! And your skirt almost matches your carpet - crazy!

I totally figure out what everybody else is going to wear before I figure out what I'll wear - one reason I started doing WIWS, because it forces me to think about my outfit more than 15 minutes before we leave!

I know what you mean, Yo-Yo weather drives me nuts! (Especially when Spring starts to come) But you look great, and your Sweet Baby accessory is just too cute ;)

Juila,
A book that I have read in the past, and probably should read again, to help me get out of myself is "12 Steps to Holiness" by St. Alphonsus Ligouri. One year I read it and gave a TON of stuff away as a way of purgating myself. It was so freeing and it helped me to fall more deeply in love with the Divine One. Just a thought....
Happy Easter to you all!
