What I Wore Sunday

Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple for What I Wore Sunday.

This weekend, we went to Saturday's vigil Mass.  We typically do - it's just better for the boys (and in turn, us).  We had been to a fun birthday party for my cousin's little girl and had no naps for the boys.  I was a bit apprehensive about Mass, but for the most part, all was well!  We went up for communion and Carter yelled "Amen" as loud as he could after he received a blessing, and John Paul and I heard bits and pieces of everything between his babbling in the cry room.

One time after Mass, my dad (Papa) took the boys down the block for some Gatorade.  Well, the boys didn't forget, and now it's become the after-Mass tradition.  But, the Gatorade has turned into Gatorade plus whatever they can get on the counter before Papa pays out.  This time I had to do a little rescuing before Papa ended up buying one of everything in the store.

On to what I wore...

I forgot I had this bracelet.  I had put in in a "safe" place, and that usually means I hide it from myself as well. My mom loves turquoise.  Her aunt did and passed that love onto Mom.  I think part of it has to do with the beautiful work that goes into making this type of jewelry and the rich history of it in New Mexico.  Each different tribe of Native Americans who make it have their own style, and each piece is unique.  I remember being tiny and walking around the square in Santa Fe where the Native Americans had their pieces set out on Navajo rugs for display and sale.  

My mom gave this piece to me a few years ago, and I love it.  I love it because it reminds me so much of her, and I love the intricate details of these three bracelets that come together to make one cuff.  
Dress: Target (forever ago)
Boots: Frye (forever ago)

As always, it has been a beautiful Sunday.  Don't forget to see everyone else's outfits on FLAP!
