what i wore wednesday

hey guys!  we were away this week at our dear friends’ house in bend, oregon, so that’s my excuse this week for a lack of pictures!

if you are new here to wiww, i hope you don’t think i’m doing this post for any purpose other than continued accountability.  i don’t think i rank high with the fashion goddesses.  i’m a target/walmart/forever 21 kind of gal.  hey, i think just getting dressed each day is an accomplishment worth documenting.  that’s what this is, just a place for us to have accountability to get out of the yoga pants, and have some fun while we’re doing it.  i love also that when i’m feeling in a rut for what to wear, i can just scroll through your links for ideas – so thanks!

this is as much of a bathing suit shot as you’ll get from me!

suit – old navy

necklace – lisa leonard designs

sweater – banana republic sale

shirt – gift from my mother-in-law

jeans – target

flip flops – payless

cuff – stacy lynn

petal pusher – the pleated poppy

shirt – target

ruffled tank under – old navy

white cropped jeans – lucky brand, handed down from my sister

sandals – local boutique

petal pusher – the pleated poppy

necklace – lisa leonard designs

i forgot to take an outfit pic this day (tank from forever 21, dress from old navy), but i tried something new with my hair – 3 buns instead of 2.  not sure if i like it, definitely not what i imagined.  i think i just don’t have enough length to my hair yet.  i’m going to try again with bobby pins next time rather than rubber bands.   but it kept me cool and didn’t bug me all day, so that’s a plus!

wanna link up?

    You are too cute with the three buns! I do that when I want more volume…just a little trick to make my hair look fuller ;) You are so lucky that you and your sis can share clothes. I wish I could!

    just wanted to say i always look forward to wiww! i’m in my late 20’s and teach school, so i’m surrounded by older ladies and totally forget what i’m supposed to wear! then your outfits remind me, so thanks :) i’m sure my hubby would thank you too. oddly enough, he’s not a fan of khaki’s and granny sweaters…

  11. 11

    love your WIWW and seeing all the different ideas. i must admit that i spend more time on my house than me, so…i was wondering about the yellow bed cover in the pictures. any idea where it came from? i would love to know if you can tell me. thanks!!!

    I just started reading your blog (probaly within the last month) and I look forward to WIWW each week. I work full time so I have the motivation to get dressed every morning, but my outfits have become so bland. I love checking out your blog (I went back through your archives and have read every single one of your WIWW) and the other links to get inspiration and to help freshen up my wardrobe. I also totally have stepped out of my comfort zone and have started shopping for clothes at thrift stores because your amazing readers find the cutest things.

    Oh I also recently bought my first petal pusher (super cute).

    Keep them coming!!!!

  22. 22

    Lindsey, I love your flowers! I will have to check out the Pleated Poppy again to see what you have that’s new :).

  23. 23

    Im swooning over your color combos in that 2nd photo Lindsey. great outfit! and the top from your MIL is fabulous. Have a great day:)

  24. 24

    I love that outfit with the tank and cardigan. It is super cute & casual :)

  25. 25

    Love your blue and white outfit! Your sandals are so unique… I really like that look. :)

  26. 26

    Thanks so much for keeping this going and taking the time to do wiww every week! I haven’t been as active as I was over the winter but that’s because it’s just so stinkin’ hot here! Kinda hard to put cute outfits together when you are so hot. I love your style and always look forward to seeing your outfits! Also, wiww has saved me so much money because I get ideas from you and all the great gals that I have been “shopping my closet” more!

  27. 27

    girl…you probably won’t even read this comment way down here at # 30-something…but I had to say that picture number two looks like an ad page in a magazine and you are the awesome model! :)

    Hope you are well!


  28. 28

    Debbie suggest I stop by! My very first time linking up with you all. Thanks so much for hosting :) I love that shirt from your mom. Really cute!

  29. 29

    I love your hair, those flower pins, and the fact that you take pictures while standing on your bed. It’s delightful and cute!

    I’ve linked up with WIWW. I read your reasons as to why you started it and it makes so much sense to me. Especially now at this point in my life. I’ll strive to do the same.

  30. 30

    you are too cute. i know i say that every day but for serious: you’re adorbs.

  31. 31

    You have inspired me!
    I actually love your style. You make it look easy and effortless – but always chic.
    And I’m loving the three buns. So adorable! I’ve been wanting to try it… but I’m not good about styling my hair.

  32. 32

    I have that same bathing suit & love it. It’s the perfect mom suit but still adds a little fun with the stripes & halter!

    I also love that navy (or black?) and white outfit! Fashionable & comfortable all rolled into one!

  33. 33

    I love love love that second outfit. I never would have thought to pair that shirt with a pink sweater but it looks fantastic. And I love the jeans rolled up at the cuffs also. Oh, and the sandals are great as well.

  34. 34

    Ok…I know this isn’t related to clothing but i love your yellow duvet on your bed. Any chance you would share where you got it? If so, I would love to know. :o)

  35. 35

    You outfits are always so cute! I love the Striped Chambray (?) Shirt and White Capri combo, with the sandals and the Posy Pin it just perfect!

    love the 3 ponys. and the ruffle knit shirt. as soon as the boys go back to school, there are several of those to be made in my future!!

  37. 37

    the yellow petal pusher looks substantially larger than normal. Do you make bigger ones? It looks so full and voluptuous!

  38. 38

    love the outfits~ the flowers add a sweet charm!
