What I Wore Sunday, Volume 11

I mentioned the other day that Andrew and I are standing in as godparents for two of our closest friends' sweet new baby girl (the real ones live out of state)!  I wanted to wear something a little fancier, but not flashy, and simple but not boring, while remembering that it's not about me, you know?

This black shift dress has been my best friend this fall and winter (you can see how else I wore it here and here).  Today I decided to dress it up with gold extras and pink lips and nails.  I spent most of yesterday running errands while listening to Adele.  Subconsciously, I think she could've influenced my sort-of beehive.  Maybe?

Dress, Old Navy.  Tights, Hue, from T.J. Maxx.  Necklace, Loft (gift).  Shoes, Steve Madden.
Sunglasses, Target.  Nails, Mod Square by Essie.
I'd love to hear about your weekend!  Meantime, head over to Fine Linen and Purple for more Mass outfit inspiration!

    1. Thank you, Martha! The shape of the dress is great in the sense that it's loose enough to hide having just eaten a big meal =)

  10. Forget Adele (although, she is fabulous), I think you're totally channeling Audrey Hepburn with this outfit!

    1. Thanks so much! It was the most fun I've ever had at a baptism, not because I was a part of it, but because there was such an outpouring of community--the party afterward lasted for about 5 hours! We also got to kneel in front of the Blessed Mother as parents and fake-godparents and consecrate the baby to her. It's something I'll always remember!

  14. You have such adorable outfits! I love your necklace- the gold and black look great together. And your hair looks fab!

  15. I am going to be a Godmother this weekend and I completely understand the outfit conundrum. Cuter than normal, not about you, but still want to look good for all the pictures and ability to hold a baby in it without said baby being tangled up in scarves or jewlwery.

    1. Scarves and jewelry? You're a genius. I hadn't taken that into account when I chose that big ol' necklace, but luckily, there weren't any incidents =) Congratulations; have fun this weekend!
