what i wore wednesday

happy 4th of july!

we’re laying low around the house with some friends and maybe catching some fireworks later this evening, how about you?

if you are new here to wiww, welcome!  just a little background for you:  i started taking pics of myself long ago and posting them because as a stay-at-home mom, all i would wear was sweats and jammies.  i knew if i actually had to post pics of myself i’d put more effort into my outfits and try a touch harder.  i still don’t spend all that much time getting ready (as will be very apparent this week!), but i feel better about myself when i’m dressed!

if you are looking for a little extra motivation, join us!

i wear this wrap all the time!  it feels like a robe but i think it actually looks kinda fancy when i’m all wrapped up in it!

evy’s tree is having a huge sale going right now, hoping to sell enough to grow into manufacturing, but first she has to sell out all of her inventory.  will you help support the shop and buy some beautiful products?

    I want to shop Evy’s tree SO BAD but that breaks my no buying clothes for a year rule that I am doing this year. *sigh* That wrap is totally something I would wear!

    Linds, that wrap makes your eyes pop!

    And… that all white outfit? Wawa. You look awesome. So California.

  11. 11

    Your wrap is awesome!! The color is brilliant and it just looks like it’s comfy! I can’t get over the fact that you can still get away with pants and long sleeves most days! We are melting hot here in Chicago which is quite unusual for us!

    You look so different when you aren’t smiling (the last pic) you are beautiful both ways! :)

    My favorite outfit is the white outfit!

  14. 14

    You are SO STINKIN’ CUTE! I love the picture of you in all white…could be a magazine ad!!! Totally! And working on your computer with the wrap is one of my fave. Makes me think we are more alike than I thought (except I don’t have a creative bone in my body!!!! haha)!

    Happy Fourth Linds!

    I love the all white look with the pink necklace! Is that a recent forever 21 buy?

  16. 16

    I love all your looks, but the monochromatic white with the statement necklace is just stunning! Hope you have a great 4th – there is going to be a lot of laying around here, too. ;)

    more than that, i love how all your outfits seem comfy and mom friendly.

    You’re so cute (as always) but I really love the all white ensemble. You look great! I have white jeans, but not too sure if I am that brave yet with two little messy boys! Maybe inspiration for the future. Happy Fourth!

    kinda off topic but I love your bedframe! hope you have some fun things planned for the fourth!

    I wanted to let you know how wonderful the all white outfit is, but I’m not the only one who thinks that. It’s a hit! So fresh and summery–and the soft pink necklace too!

  23. 23

    Love all your outfits!!! Are you sandals (in the 1st photo) gold or pewter?

  24. 24

    I love your wrap! So cute. You always look cute though. You’ve got a great comfortable (looking) style.

  25. 25

    Are those skinnies you have rolled up?

  26. 26

    You look like a leggy supermodel in the white! I really like the second one, too. The bed looks so you with the colorful pillows and fun jewelry-like posts!
