what i wore wednesday

i have been doing this post for quite awhile now, right?  so taking daily pics should be just part of my routine.  habit, really.

but it’s not.

i don’t know why, but i have had the hardest time lately with remembering to take pictures every day.

its not so much that i’m not taking pics because i just lounged around that day.  sometimes that’s the case, but these days its pretty rare.  wiww has really helped to cure me nearly completely of the yoga pants blues.  i have been dressing up (aka getting dressed) every day and completely forgetting to document it.

maybe its because i hosted a boutique for 2 days, helped throw a baby shower for a dear friend, have to pack for a long trip, have a million errands to run, on top of a business to run.  oh, and did i mention i have 3 kids?  ok, i’ll go easy on myself.  obviously i have excuses galore.

this is from the perspective of a 5 year old photographer!  i was trying to show how terribly disastrous my house was that day, along with documenting the outfit.

sweater, tanks, & shoes – target

skirt & belt – forever 21

necklace – allora handmade

i love this outfit.  i want to wear it every day.  super comfy and i feel great in it.  we all need those days, don’t we?  where we just feel good?

shirt & skinnies – forever 21

sandals – target

awesome ruffled leather cuff – stacy lynn

necklace – crystal b

i felt a lot better in this outfit than it looks on camera.  i guess thats a good thing?  i really liked the cuffed jeans and chucks with the boyfriend cardigan.

cardi – target

tank and jeans – old navy

converse – nordstrom rack

necklace – lisa leonard designs

guest appearance – kristi of pink and polka dot!

yay!  i got a fun quick little visit from my 2010 blissdom roomie, kristi!  she and her adorable family were in town for her husband’s high school reunion and they kindly stopped by.  i was only a little offended when she didn’t help me whip up a slipcover for my chair in 5 minutes.  i mean, she is the slip cover queen after all ;)


just a little heads up:  i added lots to my shop yesterday!

posy pins

posy hair clips

e-reader cases

    I would wear that first outfit everyday, too! It’s adorable. Great mix of color and pattern. I need to get brave enough to give my 5 year old the camera more often! tee hee. Such a fun week.

  2. 2

    Wow, girl, you are busy! Way to juggle it all!

    I love that last outfit the best– just so casual and comfy looking! Man, wish I could wear jeans without being way too hot! I am looking forward to getting back to some cooler weather on the mainland, that’s for sure.

    I seriously don’t know how you do it! I have 3 kids and I can barely manage to make it to swim classes every day right now! Im loving all the different combination of colors on that first outfit (and that skirt looks beautiful on you!)
    Off to look at your sunglass holders!

    Here are my thoughts….

    A. You look GREAT in all outfits.
    B. YES we all need those feel good outfits. ALWAYS.
    C. You have some nice stems! I want my legs to look like that in jeans! HOTTIE!
    D. I hate when you love an outfit and it looks “different” in pics. Happens to me all of the time!
    E. HERO…3 kids, crafty, involved, blogger, wife! I don’t have half of those things and get overwhelmed.

    Happy Wednesday!

    How cute are you?!! I have just joined in on wiww because I have gotten lazy and need to start getting dressed again!
    How did the boutique go? I told my sis about it (she lives in Paso) and I think she went. When I forwarded her the email you sent she was super excited about it.

    I have had such a hard time remembering to take pictures, too! Like, so much that I didn’t take a single one this week! Must be something to do with it being summer!

    I am having SUCH a hard time remembering to take pictures this summer!!! I’m glad I’m not the only one. :-)

    Aww, you look really cute. I especially love the top outfit. “Simple” with details that do the work for you. I’ve been running a lot lately, too :).

  11. 11

    I love the picture with the cars on the floor, because that is sooo my house! I’m always tripping over them.:)

  12. 12

    Love your first outfit! The colors look so perfect together.

  13. 13

    I’ve so been forgetting to take pictures…but rest assured…still getting dressed in the morning too! I posted my WIWW this week and you and Kaia both have on the same skirt. So cute on both of you! See you in a couple of weeks!

  14. 14

    I ADORE that first outfit too!!! Gotta go check out Forever 21…
    One day I will start WIWW. Just gotta get out of these sweatpants first. Noone should have to see that. ;)

  15. 15

    LOVE that first outfit! I’m so excited to link up today for the first time! :)

    Your striped skirt in the first outfit is adorable. It’s making me want to run out to Forever 21 now to see if I can find one. ;)

  17. 17

    All your outfits look great i adore you pleated poppy things :)

  18. 18

    I loved seeing you again and meeting your lovely family. Next time we’ll work on the slip! hugs!

  19. 19

    I love ALL of your outfits! Your accessories are awesome! I am a first-timer for the link up as I really am trying to spend a little more time on myself and learn about my style! I’ve dealt with chronic illness for 8 years and I am TIRED of having a negative relationship with my body so I figured learning how to dress it & have fun would be a great place to start! Looking forward to learning from you & others!

    Can you please tell me how to add your button to my post? I have the button there with a link under it, but not the actual button to click on! I want to do it right, but copying and pasting the html isn’t working! Thanks so much!

    Loved your outfits! And have I mentioned lately how much in love I am with your house? I drool when I read your house posts.

    Anyway, my favorite outfit is the last one, in the grey tank, cardi and jeans!! I think it totally showcases your beauty and makes your skin look beautiful.
