what i wore wednesday

welcome to another week of wiww, where we gather to share our weekly outfit pics: the good, the bad, and (let’s face it) sometimes the ugly!  i am being real honest this week with my last outfit – prepare yourselves!

tank, jeans and flats – target

cardigan and belt – old navy

necklace – forever 21

mother’s day at the flea

sweater & skirt – gap

top & scarf – forever 21

tights – target

boots – steve madden

messenger bag – the pleated poppy

day of running errands, meetings and appointments

top – from my mom (from paris – not my mom, the shirt)

jeans – forever 21

belt – old navy

sandals – gap

necklace (most worn lately!) – lisa leonard designs

and now let’s get real.

when i am overwhelmed or start to get stressed out, getting dressed gets lower on my list.  and some days i’m just lazy.

this is what i had on at 8 am.  and 12 pm.  and 5pm.

no need to tell you where everything is from because i’m guessing you won’t be running out to get the same ensemble!

    You are too cute, you still look good in your sweats! And I am gonna go out on a limb here and say we’ve all done that at some point. Probably more often than we’d like to admit!

  7. 7

    Love that Paris top!

    Also love your scarf organization on the back of the door. I have mine in a big pile in my closet on a shelf. I forget what I have since I can’t see them. Just might try your way…

    I love the flea market outfit.

    From that first photo, are you sure you’re not a former model? Hey, today on my What I Made Wednesday I’m doing a 6 week series on my son’s Harry Potter Birthday party if you wanted to take a peek. Today I’m starting with the invites!


  13. 13

    I love that red necklace! I think I need that in my life…

  14. 14

    I love your WIWW posts. I think of you when I contemplate an accessory, which I rarely actually wear any of, but I know I need to try. Anyway…I saw this today and had to share, knowing your love of Mason Jars. http://recapmasonjars.com/

    I love the shirt from Paris <3 that outfit is my fav!

  18. 18

    Umm I would run out to get the socks on the last outfit. Super cute polka dots and that sweater looks cozy. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend mother’s day then to spend it at a flea with family. I rarely can drag my gang to a market. Happy Mother’s day.

    Love these! What’s the brand on the navy striped tank from Target? I love it and I know our store doesn’t have in the actual store. I’d love to buy it online!

  20. 20

    I love the tank from Target, was it a recent purchase? You always look adorable!

  21. 21

    I really like your first outfit! The jeans fit you so well. Target has some pretty great finds!

    Thanks for hosting Lindsey! I’m loving your two nautical outfits this week, AND that adorable shirt from Paris! Next time your mom goes, I’m sending her with a shopping list for me too :-). Oh, and don’t feel too bad about pajama day. They’re kinda cozy every now and then… I had one myself yesterday – didn’t get dressed until I had to go out and teach an exercise class at 5:30. Yikes! Happy Wednesday!

  23. 23

    Thanks for the third outfit! That looks like mine a few days a week! Love it!

  24. 24

    I love that F21 necklace! They have the most amazingly affordable pieces.

  25. 25

    Love your outfits! Even the comfy one at the end. :) But my favorite is the one with the blue jeans and the grey shirt and belt.

  26. 26

    Thanks for hosting! :) And thanks for keeping it real! There are more days than I’d like to acknowledge that I’d rather be wearing that last outfit… haha

  27. 27

    I love that first photo, Lindsey! The outfit is great, and you look so glamourous!

  28. 28

    I love the pose in the first outfit shot, it is a great picture of you. The outfit is also very cute. My favorite outfit is the grey one. I love everything about it.

  29. 29

    I love your grey shirt and grey belt combo. So pretty!!!

    I love that you shared your IRL outfit too – that is SUCH a cute sweater, it looks comfy-cozy and good for getting stuff done.

    Thank you for the honesty! I’ve caught myself still in pjs at 3pm more days than I want to count. I’m not sure if it’s any better when I just change into yoga pants and a tshirt… :)
