what i wore wednesday

its another week of wiww – another week i failed at taking pictures everyday!

if you’re new here, what i wore wednesdays began as something personal for me, to take pictures of myself everyday of the week and post them on my blog on wednesdays as motivation to get out of my pjs or yoga pants.  as a stay at home mom, i found myself only getting dressed on the days i had to leave the house, which are few.  having my husband come home to the same wife he left in the morning (still in her pajamas) made me realize that i needed a change, that i wanted a change.  and after doing this for a year or 2 now, i can tell you that it has worked!  i get dressed 9 out of 10 days and i feel so much better about myself.  and so many of you have jumped on this bandwagon with me!  now this isn’t about who has the nicest clothes or buys new things, but its about keeping each other accountable to take care of ourselves and also get some outfit inspiration from each other – from real people rather than just magazines with unaffordable outfits.  just to keep it real, i do most of my clothing shopping from target, forever 21, walmart, and old navy.

saturday – super hot (our weather has been wacky) – soccer game

tank – forever 21

jeans – old

sandals – target

hat – urban outfitters

sunday – church

sweater – 10+ years old – brass plum/nordsrtom

skirt – forever 21

flats – target

necklace – allora handmade

tuesday – homeschool, walk downtown with sister and kids (chilly)

cardi – target

dress – old navy

jeans – forever 21

flats – target

infinity scarf – the pleated poppy

now if only this weather would cooperate i actually have a PILE of new products i’d like to add to the shop, but the sun only peaked out from behind the clouds for a few minutes then was never to be seen again – not so good for picture taking!

have you been better than me at taking outfit pics?  link up yours below, but please follow 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!

i’m also linking up with nina of momma go round for “real momma, real style” – join me there, mkay?

    I keep contemplated doing this on my own blog but then I never do. I go to work every day to a small office with nothing but men who don’t really care what I wear. I could probably wear my flannel pjs and they wouldn’t even notice. I don’t see clients very often so I figure, who cares what I wear. Some days I put thought into what I walk out of the house in…and others I don’t. You always look adorable…maybe one day I will finally be motivated enough to try harder and even take a picture of two.

    I love all the looks. The cardigan and dress over jeans is a look I want to try out!

  13. 13

    This is going to sound nutso-nuts but for the first time in my whole entire life I walked into a Forever 21 store yesterday. I can’t believe all the cute stuff and reasonable prices!!! I’ve really been liking your clothes from there so I went through real quick to check it out. Curious…I’m so shocked at the reasonable prices, can anyone share on how the clothes wear over time???

    Love how you layer skinny jeans and summer dresses–great way to get more wear out of summer pieces–and a great way for me to hide that extra layer of leftover baby weight I’m trying to get rid of :)

    Loved what you said about just having fun w/ wiww! I totally copied you and got that AWESOME tank from Forever 21, haven’t worn it yet but I can’t wait to! :) of course now today its really windy & chilly..thinking a 3/4 sleeve under would be cute :)
