hey friends! this is my first official wiww of summer and, well, i was kind of a slacker. as always, i have plenty of excuses on the ready: while our husbands have been fishing for a few days, my mom and i have been tackling project after project, so most of what i wore was painting clothes, gardening grubbies, or a bathing suit (a girl’s gotta relax a little, right?).
if you’re new here, my main purpose of wiww is to encourage other women to simply get dressed. and by get dressed i mean out of jammies, out of sweats, out of yoga pants. put on an actual outfit and maybe even some accessories. its amazing how much better you’ll feel about yourself and as much as your husband may like you in your snug yoga pants, he’s gonna like it even more when you pretty yourself up a bit. i’m not talking hours in front of the mirror, primping. just maybe 15 minutes of getting dressed, running a brush through your bed head, and throwing on a sweep of blush and a dab of lipgloss.
this was my church outfit and what i wore running errands.
top – forever 21
jeans – local shop
wedges – old navy
projects around the house and running more errands (how many times can i go to home depot in one week?!)
t-shirt – forever 21
jeans – target
chucks – nordstrom rack
necklace – lisa leonard designs
(ps – just for full disclosure, i took about 15 pictures of this outfit. trying to suck in your stomach and take a steady picture at the same time is tricky. and that sideways lighting does not help!)
so sloppy, i know! but i was so comfy. i wore this working around the house, watching 6 kids, and running a few more errands. why are there so many more errands associated with doing projects?!
sweater – old navy
tank and lounge pants – target
flops – payless
