Before I begin, Boden is offering an additional 10% off clearance/sale styles. I have a link for it in the sidebar and at the bottom of this post for those of you interested. The affiliate program provided me with the link, which is awesome. (Sometimes the affiliate doesn't get all the good ones.)
Day: Sunday, December 13, 2015.
Where: Mass at our newly remodeled church.
Outfit Details: Coat, Anthropologie; Dress, Boden; Shoes, Nine West; Scarf, J. Crew; Sunglasses, Ray-Ban (here, they are the Meteor style).
Anecdote of the Day: The church looks lovely and bright now. It used to be a touch dark in the space. I was in the first Confirmation group to be confirmed in the original "remodeled" version of the church WAY BACK WHEN, so it is wonderful to know that my kids will be part of another group to enjoy their sacraments in the second remodeling of the church. (Though Rex had his First Holy Communion in the old church design, and all the kids were baptized in the old design.) They kept some of the original bits, including the ceiling, which was the one thing I didn't want them to touch. So glad they kept that!

Outfit Details: Dress, (Sparkle Spot Jacquard Dress, here at Boden; my review of it here); Coat, Halston Heritage; Shoes, Boden; Necklace, Stella and Dot; Tights, J. Crew; Sunglasses, Ray-Ban (here, they are the Meteor style).
Anecdote of the Day: I like my drinks hard and manly, so when offered a neat Scotch or Bourbon, I will happily drink it. I had the pleasure of enjoying a really lovely Scotch that strongly tasted of peat, which if you have traveled to any bit of countryside in the UK, you have smelled burning in the air. It tastes amazing, but I do understand that the taste may be an acquired one. ;-)
