WIWS - Heading to the O.K. Coral after Mass?

"You going to play cards in the wild, wild west?"

Not exactly how you want to be greeted by your husband after he sees you in the outfit that you are wearing to church.

But that's okay.  I thought my outfit looked pretty good so even his comments weren't going to sway me.

"Why don't you wear a thicker belt with slots for your bullets?" my husband asked with a smirk.

"If I was going to wear a thicker belt, it would hold my poker chips and not my bullets!" was my witty retort.

And then we left for Mass chuckling at how funny we thought we were.

So, here's my outfit (photo taken by cute 8-year-old):



Jacket: Kohl's
Shirt: Lands' End
Pants: Target
Belt: Target
Shoes: Target

And here's a recent purchase that added a little bit of color to the outfit:

Necklace: Target

I wish you could see the really cute feature of the jacket.  There's a little rim of plumage (I think that's the technical designer term...if not, please let me know the correct term so I don't look like a total fashion dolt) running around the bottom quarter of the of the jacket.  Not plumage as in feathers but plumage as in three very non-ruffley ruffles.

I know that doesn't make much sense but it's cute...adds some flair to the jacket and makes it look more hip and less Wild West.

For more knowledgeable fashionistas and certainly less gun-slinging, poker-playing ones, head over to Fine Linen and Purple.

Happy Sunday y'all!

I am loving the color of your blouse and that necklace is to die for. They both compliment the gray in the rest of the outfit.
Happy Sunday!!

Look, you just let him know the next time that he can't handle how stylish you are, that there is always the muu-muu! Would he like that instead? ;-)

First of fall Wild West? Not at all? You look very classic and I love the necklace, cute blazer too!

Love that necklace! I think I can count on one hand the number of times I've worn a necklace to Mass since having kids - they seem to think of it as more of a leash or toy than an accessory...

I am always so envious of people who can wear buttoned up shirts tucked in. I don't think you look remotely Old West-y. I think you look fierce!
But "fierce" in a good way, not a scary way.

Non ruffly ruffles are the best! Feminine without being showy. Diddo on the poker chips :>
