WIWS (Vol. 19)

Another week for WIWS.  Yesterday I was at school watching another group graduate from Franciscan, moved home in the evening and today I am settling in for a summer at home.

Look at my lovely household sisters in their graduation garb and the non-graduating sisters yesterday.

And of course the best part about being home is holding this little cutie during Mass. (Let it be noted that this pic was taken after Mass and not during Mass.  Yeah I know, I got the cutest little Goddaughter around.)  

Now on to the outfit.  I have a Nanny interview this evening so I felt like this outfit said "I-am-a-put-together-fun-college-student-who-would-take-great-care-of-your-child".  Is that what it says to you?  The blue was an added bonus to honor Our Lady, our best and dearest mother, on Mother's Day.  

The details
Dress: jean polka dot dress (with pockets!) from Old Navy
Cardigan:  Old Navy (actually purchased at the same time as the dress)
Shoes:  My granny nude shoes that are not well pictured here
Lovely Locks:  Blow dried but in desperate need of a trim, priority for this week
Shelf and boxes in the background:  Evidence of the unpacking and organizing I need to do this week.  I hate packing and then I realize that everything has to be unpacked and I am tempted to just burn everything.  

And I must wish a "Happy Mother's Day" to my own mom and grandma, all the women who have taught me so much about what it means to be a wife and mother, and above all to Our Lady who is our greatest model of womanhood and motherhood.

"With your help, as long is their is strength in us, we will fight to the last breath, so help us, O Queen, O Lady, O best and dearest Mother." -St. Maximilian Kolbe

Now that I am back home I will be doing some prettying up of the blog (any opinions on likes and dislikes?)  and writing some post about the summer.


  1. Love the polka dot dress. And yes, it screams "I'm an awesome nanny!"

  2. So cute Natalie! Love the blue as a tribute to Mary :)

  3. You look great! I think the outfit says "I got the job!!". I hope all went well.

  4. Love that dress! Awesome shout-out to the BVM :) And your Goddaughter is ADORABLE! Hope the interview went well!
