Clothed with Grace: Memorial Day at Grandma's House

Memorial Day at Grandma's House

Monday morning the Granster and I headed to my parent's house for the morning.  My husband was working on projects around the house (we're finishing the basement), so I thought it would be nice to give him some peace for the morning. Plus, my sister and her husband were here visiting from Kansas City for the weekend.  I'd planned a super cute summery outfit, but when we got up in the morning it was rainy and gross out, hence wearing this today.  By the time we got to my parent's house it was starting to clear up which was great.  My son was able to ride his big wheel for quite a while, and my sister was able to snap a few pictures for me.  We had a great time, and my son fell asleep on the way home.  Time with family is the best. : )

Also, I'm totally feeling the blog love this week! Agi at Vodka Infused Lemonade, Amber at Real Girl Glam, and Sherry at The Life of the Party all picked different looks of mine from last week's link ups to feature this week. So sweet!  Ada at Elegance and Mommyhood also featured me along with a whole bunch of other ladies as one the best looks of last week. Definitely go check out their great blogs :)

*I think Tim Gunn might be right about capris not being flattering.  I've had these and loved them for like three years, however, they sure to make my legs look shorter then normal.  I'm not sure these will be gracing my blog again....

  2. Capris are so great for summer, but I also have short legs. I just wear them when no one is looking...haha.

  3. I am too petite to wear capris...they don't look right on me! Maybe you could try yours with heels to see if it helps elongate your legs? Have a great weekend!

  4. I really like how comfy and casual those capris are and I don't think they make your legs look too short. Maybe try them with some casual wedges?? Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. I cannot really wear capris, but I have seen a few get away with wearing them well, but they aren't for me. You look nice! Hope you enjoy your weekend. /Madison

  10. Love your necklace Ginny. I have the same one in gold (I think yours is silver, can't tell). I agree about capris, not on you but in general. Now they have cropped pants, they look so much better. I've actually gotten rid of my capris. You're welcome for picking your outfit. I find so many bloggers pick the same bloggers each week. I want to show case different bloggers each week. I think that's only fair. Have a great weekend and thanks for linking up.

  12. I adore that top!!! I totally know what you mean about capris. I really like them but they make me look even shorter and stumpier than I really am!

  13. I'm totally wearing the same sandals today, but mine are blue! Love the lacy top!

  14. I think cropped pants always make my legs look short and I don't really have short legs. I've worn them a coupe of times with flat shoes and now I just stick to heels. I don't think your legs look short here though. Cute outfit!
