Rules are for breaking...unless it's the law.

Sunday, December 05, 2010
I wore this for church today. I haven't been posting my Sunday outfits because we're always late and so I end up throwing on whatever and feeling like whatever, you know? But today I did my hair and actually thought about what to wear. I deserve a million points. Change that to dollars and we've got a deal.

One of my previous style rules was not wearing like-colors together. But I've been trying to break my rules because they're stupid. I love the light colors here together:  gray, ivory, and white. Your homework assignment for this week is to break one of your style rules!! Email me if you do - I'd love to see your outfit and know about the rule you broke!

Tip:  Use double-stick tape when you wrap your cardigan so it doesn't flap and get frumpy!

  1. Double stick tape - totally buying some.

    Husband and I give ourselves points for getting to church on time... we're all "10 points, no need to go for the rest of the month!"

    But we always end up going... and doing the walk of shame in late to the chapel.

  2. I am totally loving this outfit. Bummer, I've missed the Sunday outift posts. And heck to the yeah, rules ARE for breaking. Unless it's the law. ;]

  3. Double stick tape! Brilliant! I've been using safety pins (until I sew in a tiny snap button), but they don't work as well. The tape would definitely cover more area that the pins or buttons. Thanks for the tip!

    I'm emailing you with the rule I broke. :)

  4. Wow, thanks so much for that tip. It honestly would never have occurred to me to use double stick tape before. But I need to get some asap now. Brilliance.

  7. What a very sneaky idea! I am going to try the double stick tape one day because I was wondering how people made their sweaters so "perfect" looking when they were wearing it. Thank you!

  15. OOH! I think I just might email you my style adventure! One of my rules is not mixing plaids, which I've been thinking about doing for the Dressember challenge!

  16. I know everyone has said it, but that double-sided tape idea is genius! I've never actually wrapped my cardigans, but I think I will try now. Goodness knows I need to add some variety to them because I wear them all the time.

    P.S. I'm always rushing to church, even when I wake up early. Go figure.

  41. So I went to the trift-a-thon this weekend, and Melissa told me about how she met you through last year's thrift-a-thon. We were both wishing you were there and only talked about you and how great you are the whole time. Ha ha just kidding. But we do both love you.

    P.S. Excuse me, but your hair looks sexified! Hot.

  42. Sarah loves it all, hahahaha!! You guys are awesome. Yes, last year's was so fun. So sad I won't be able to meet you for a while. You guys should just move to L.A. and stay with us. ...and THANKS! ;)

  47. Your rule breaking turned out quite well :) I don't know if I am going to break any rules this week (mostly cause I am not positive of what mine are) BUT i AM going to plan my outfits every night for the next day - cause I always like them so much more when I do that. Wooo!
    That kinda counts right?

  54. hm. I have rules about not wearing skirts that hit between my knee and my ankles so I don't look stumpy. hm... we'll see if I can get myself to break it this week. I'm not sure it's in my best interest, lol.
