What I Wore Sunday {October 12, 2014}, fluff and substance

Hello there! It’s been a while since I linked up for What I Wore Sunday at Fine Linen and Purple, so I thought I’d join in this week.

It’s a gorgeous October weekend here in central Wisconsin! I ran a 5k yesterday at a local veteran’s memorial park. It’s an amazing place and the only manned veteran’s memorial of it’s kind in the US, from what I understand. I had a good race but failed to account for the hills in the area… that last one was TOUGH! I finished strong, though, and loved that my husband and daughters came along to cheer me (and the other racers) on! There weren’t a lot of spectators, and it means a lot at the end when your legs feel tired and you are ready to be done… my husband and I had a lovely talk about silencing the “inner mean girl” before the race. My husband is amazing, and the things he suggested really worked!

Here’s what I wore to Mass this morning. It’s COLD in the mornings now, our highs have been in the low 50’s the past few days. This is one of my favorite StitchFix wrap dresses. I layered it with tights, a scarf, jean jacket, and boots for warmth, and I needed all of those! šŸ™‚












I succumbed to peer pressure lastĀ week and actually tried to apply Jamberry Nails. I had a hard, hard time and did a little Googling after I was done because I got tons of wrinkles in the tips. ThoseĀ lasted about 8 days before I removed them, but they kept catching on my hair and clothes because they wouldn’t seal very well. :/ I talked to a consultant and she sent me a video link for ladies who have curved nail beds (I do!) and the second ones I tried went on like butter. SO easy and they look amazing! Now – now, I get the hype. I really like them and removing them was so easy compared to professional manicures I have gotten! If you are interested in a free sample or need help, I highly recommend Cari (and I don’t know her personally at all… I found her on Facebook).
