How We Wore It | Holiday Edition


There’s one month out of the year when I really like our front door color. Our HOA doesn’t allow us to paint our doors and while I’m not the biggest fan of green, during the month of December, I totally embrace it. 😉  We snapped these pictures on Sunday before church to document that we were all ready a HALF HOUR BEOFRE CHURCH STARTED. Yes, that sentence called for all caps, it was a big occasion. We got thrown off our groove with two kids in the mix (haha), but we’re adjusting and finally sitting in the soft pews again, instead of those hard, cold seats in the back. 😉

This Sunday outfit was inspired by our How We Wore It image from Because Shanna Said So. I loved the plaid and the pops of red against the neutrals and of course, booties. While I don’t have any buffalo plaid in my closet (I’m dying to add some!) I did find a way to incorporate a plaid pattern with my skirt. Most of my outfit was found while thrifting. In fact, my skirt is actually an awesome vintage piece I scored a few years back. (It even has a matching blazer, ha!) Addie went plaid, too, and Ellie pulled in the fun fur/animal print in her outfit!


Here’s a few more photos from our quick Sunday morning front porch photo session. I’m happy to report our Sunday went relatively smoothly. Ellie didn’t hit anyone in the back of the head with a cracker (true story. that girl has good aim!), I only tripped in the hallway once (better than usual!) and Addie didn’t have any blowouts. We’ll call that a win! And, Brian? He’s usually pretty well behaved. Ha!


OUTFIT DETAILS – My outfit: vintage/thrifted, shoes & tights: Target | Ellie’s dress: Gap, Bow: Mads Made Headbands | Addie’s dress: Old Navy, Bow: Bloomie’s handmade | Hello Wreath: Hello Happy House

    THAT SKIRT! When I saw a picture this Sunday on IG I wondered about that skirt–it's so cute and I love it with the grey tights. That shirt is amazing as well. You are gorgeous as are both girls!

    Okay… basically all my thoughts lead back to this one statement, "Why is your family the CUTEST!?" I am seriously in love. Picture perfect and so darling. The details on the bottom of your top and perfection too.

  • Brooke @ Silver Lining

    Could your family get any more cute?! You four are darling! And let's get a big AMEN for sitting in the soft benches instead of those cold hard chairs in the back! I swear it's impossible for Claire to be reverent when we're back there. Instead of only 99% impossible for her to be reverent in the front. 😉

  • Amy
