You guys, I am about to show you something that has never before been seen on this blog: an outfit made of pieces that AREN’T FROM LANE BRYANT. Shocking, I know! I’ve never shopped at Avenue before (and actually, I didn’t really know they exist), but this post on A Well-Rounded Venture was so enthusiastic about their sundresses that I had to go try them on. (Plus, ever since I broke up with Lane Bryant, I’m in need of another brick-and-mortar store I can shop in.) Anyway, Nicole was totally right about the sundresses – I bought one, and I’m thinking I’ll probably be back for more by summertime.
So, here’s what I wore to church for Easter:
We had to take these pictures in the living room because it was raining out — it’s been raining ALL WEEK and my kids have been on Spring Break and I’ve been stuck in the house with three antsy boys. Save me. (They’re back to school tomorrow, hurrah!)
(Insert obligatory pun about my right to bare arms. Ho-ho.)
Also — Saturday night when I was pulling out clothes for the boys to wear to church, I came across a VERY disco-era, sea-green, polyester, three-piece suit that was Aaron’s as a little boy. I held it up just to say, Ha ha, look what your Daddy used to wear; but Noah was instantly smitten with the suit and decided to wear it to church. I gently urged him that maybe the suit was a little, ahem, old-fashioned, not to mention hot and itchy, and would he like something else, maybe a nice argyle sweater? But he was determined, and my policy on clothes for the kids has been that as long as it’s reasonable they can choose what they wear (although this is the first time my resolve to let them decide has been tested)….so, here’s what Noah wore to church on Easter Sunday:
A five-year-old in a sea-green leisure suit. That, Internet, is my gift to you. You’re welcome.
