what i would like to wear wednesday

i’m mixing it up today!

i was terrible about taking pics this last week.  i’m blaming it on being home alone with 3 kids for a couple days, then the madness of packing up for a long car ride and a wedding weekend away.  i took a much needed break from my computer and camera and it was lovely!

so, instead of leaving you with a blank screen, i just spent the last 2 hours drooling over the www and found my new summer attire for my pretend date night and pretend road trip.

on my pretend date night, i will be wearing a $130 dress from banana, of course.  but i’ll be more conservative and wear cute chunky cloggy heels from target, use my own wristlet clutch, and accessorize with goodies from lisa leonard, just.lovely.things, and forever21.

for my road trip with just sean, i’ll be wearing this cute skirt from forever21 that i already tried on in real life and love it!  sean doesn’t love it so much, but he will when i have on cute wedges from payless and an overnight bag from fossil.  what man wouldn’t want his wife on a roadtrip, with a cute skirt and heels, WITH AN OVERNIGHT BAG?!  because you know, if you have an overnight bag, you get to stay overnight somewhere.  and remember, this is a no kids trip, probably to santa barbara.  and we’ll be in a vintage convertible.  probably cream colored.  and when we get there, we’ll rent a vespa to scoot around town on.  don’t laugh, this is my pretend road trip!  oh, and the outfit – i’ll have on a cute ruffly top from anthro (ssshhhh!  don’t tell sean!), a ring from funky vintage lovely, a ruffled scarf from the pleated poppy, and a tiny pouch to hold the essential cash and cc.  so fun!

ok, back to reality.  the only road trippin’ i’ll be doing this summer with be with all the fam, which is fun in its own ways, just not nearly as dreamy and glamorous!

were you better this week at taking pics?  link up!

    Your pretend outfits are fabulous. Those payless wedges may need to be mine in Real LIFE. And that skirt- oh the skirt. If only real life shopping was as fun as pretend shopping. Your details are so funny. A skirt, heels AND and over night bag. Perfect! Love this week’s change up.

    Love your pretend road trip clothes! I love Payless for summer heels/wedges too. We went on an impromptu overnighter this past weekend and it was SO fun….but I didn’t take any pictures of outfits either! So this week….I did What NOT to Wear. And….we didn’t bring a computer with us either on our little getaway and I think that is why it felt so extra special. It was just the two of us. Sometimes that laptop is like a third person! So glad you had a lovely weekend. ♥

    You crack me up today!!! I love all of your outfit vision boards, especially the accessories.

  15. 15

    AHHH, I just bought that $130(yikes!) dress from banana republic! I’m wearing it to a wedding we are traveling to in Alabama where my husband is the best man! SO excited that you are showing your ideas of what to pair with this dress! And wondering if I still have time to order something! The shoes have been my biggest dilemma! (I have 3 pairs to mail back!) Regardless, I’m hoping to feel like less of a frumpy mom of 3 and more of a sexy wife! ha!

    I just saw your bloom belt on another blog, I am in love!! I immediately came back to look for one, and they are sold out :( I hope you are making more! I would love to do a trade if you are interested…
