what i wore wednesday

hey friends!

welcome again to wiww (“what i wore wednesday”), where i use all of you to keep me accountable to getting out of my pj’s and getting dressed every day.  i am honored that so many of you have taken the plunge with me in this adventure.  if you’re a little leary of  linking up, its hard at first but gets much easier as the weeks go by.  same goes for taking self portraits.  its amazing how embarrassed i can get all by myself!  but it, too, gets easier.  join in – you’ll find you will get a little more creative with your clothes, and you’ll feel better about yourself than if you stayed unshowered and undressed all day – i promise!

i felt really comfy in this outfit, but very “mom” also.  i don’t think you’d ever see anyone without kids in an outfit like this.

top – target

ruffle tank under – old navy

white denim capris – lucky (hand-me-down)

caterpillar sandals – gap

necklace – vintage lisa leonard

petal pusher – cream (only 2 left right now!)

another easy outfit, super comfy.  if you didn’t know, comfort is really important to me.  maybe once every couple of months or so i’ll wear heels, but i am so uncomfortable!

sweater – old navy

jeans and tank – forever 21

bronze flats – target

necklace – from someone at the queen bee market (i can’t remember who?!)

again, another comfy day, but i felt super good in this outfit – by far my favorite for the week.

i pushed myself a little.  it sounds silly, but i’d usually just wear a regular plain tank under this dress, but i decided to get crazy and wear a ruffled tank with a racer back – i was so happy with how it looked!  i wore a super sassy necklace and toned it down with worn in jeans – i loved the contrast!

dress – old navy

tank and shoes – walmart

jeans – local shop

necklace – local shop

when sean is taking my pictures i tend to get a little sassy!

i wanted to show you just how much i fit into my wristlet clutch:





eye drops

tiny pouch

(and this was before i tucked in my sunnies and a gift card wallet!)

sunday after church.  it looked so gloomy that day, then got crazy hot.  i was roasting in tights and a wool sweater!

dress – old navy

sweater, boots, sunnies, and belt – forever 21

tights – target

necklace – allora handmade

and i used my inspiration photos from last week and did my best to mimic one – not too bad, if i say so myself!

we stuck around the house all day.  home schooled until FIVE O’CLOCK!!!  i had a child who really struggled with focus today – boo.

 sweater, top and jeans – target

chucks – nordstrom rack

now its your turn to link up!   here are the rules:

1.  link to your specific blog post, not your blog’s main page.  ex: http://thepleatedpoppy.com/2011/09/what-i-wore-wednesday-fall-inspiration/  not  http://thepleatedpoppy.com/blog/.

2.  please only link outfit related posts.  your craft project may be adorable, or that may be a great giveaway, but this linky is for outfit related posts only – thank you!

3.  please please please link back here to me so all this wiww stuff makes sense to your readers.  and its just nice to do ;)  grab a button from my sidebar (see the code box?).

4.  check out as many links as possible!  i am constantly inspired by so many outfits each week!  and you will definitely find some new blogs that you’ve never stumbled upon before – so fun!

    You always look so adorable! I love that you pair so many light sweaters with your outfits, I always have to have a little cover up of something with everything I wear.

  21. 21

    Hi Lindsey! LOVE your outfits. I think my favorite is the second one because I love your hair like that. I also really like the one where you are wearing the coral/orangey color. That’s a great color for you!

    Happy Week to you! Thanks so much for hosting! Being a part of this the last eight weeks has really helped me have a positive self image the last few and sometimes hardest parts of this pregnancy!
    I dont know if I will look very cute after she comes, but I hope to still be able to participate. It has been so fun and really really helped me feel so good!

    So thank you Lindsey!!

    I love your take on your inspiration outfit, I must say I’ve been wanting to recreate that myself!

    And I hate those all day homeschooling marathons, I must say I’m grateful that they are few and far between around here, I’m feeling your pain though-we’ve been there done that! :)

  41. 41

    At first I thought your pick for favorite outfit was going to be mine too but then when I saw Sunday’s, I’m just not sure. Both are SOOOOO cute!!!!

  42. 42

    You’re just so cute! Love the dress with tank and jeans. I can’t wear that here in Morocco though….it shows shoulder. And I don’t know if you know exactly how erotic shoulders and knees are in an Islamic country. I miss my tank tops!!!
