My Sunday Best: In 10 minutes

This really should not be considered Sunday “Best”, since I got ready in 10 minutes…hence the hair and lack of makeup. But, at least I pulled together a decent outfit thanks to some old standby’s—a pretty skirt, sassy shoes, and chunky accessory.

When I say “old” standby, I really mean old, like 12 years old, like before babies, and marriage and even meeting my hubby! That’s how long ago I bought this skirt—from the Gap when the Gap used to make not boring stuff.  (Sorry to you Gap lovers, I just have not been impressed in the last couple of years during the three times I have visited.) 

My sister Melody used to work at the Gap during her Senior year in High School so I mooched off her discount often. Not much lasted all these years except this skirt, and another one in brown polka dots, the pair of pants I wore on my first date with my husband, and two cable knit sweaters. 

Through the years I have grown out and in of this skirt, literally. Sometimes I can zip it up, sometimes I can’t. I only wear it in October, so each October it’s a gamble. This year was a good year :)

Fun Fact: I did not even know about the Gap until MY Junior Year in High School, and I did not purchase anything from the Gap until I was in college and nearly everyone I knew wore stuff from there! The same thing goes for Abercrombie and J. Crew! I had no clue until all my preppy college friends (which were guys mostly) shopped there. I have yet to own anything from J. Crew, but I did buy a pair of jeans from Abercrombie once upon a time.  That’d be a hoot to see if those still fit!

In other non silly personal fashion news, we got our pumpkins yesterday!

SEE!

After my six year old took my photos for me, he wanted a turn to pose with them….

And then my four year old wanted to do his version of a fashion pose…

And then things got silly!

He’s being a pumpkin.

Then it was my turn.

He’s already a pumpkin head so he did the stem—I think that’s what he was doing.

Happy Halloween Week!! We are getting excited :)

Pin It!

1) your legs look sexy and tan
2) I worked at Gap after I graduated high school
3) I think I worked at Gap during their experimental years

"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
