welcome to what i wore wednesday! if you are looking for some accountability to get out of your yoga pants and put just a smidge more effort into yourself, join me and link up here! i have gone from wearing pj’s or sweats nearly everyday, to taking a few minutes to put on real clothes – my husband takes notice and i feel so much better about myself!
i pulled this skirt out from the back of my closet – i think i got it about 10 years ago! what i love about it is the lace inset in the pleats. but the length was making it feel a little bit stuffy, so i added a casual striped tee. the coral sweater added just enough texture with the tiny ruffles down the front. the length of this skirt pretty much demands heels, so i went for my comfy black suede wedges. i added the pale aqua earrings and necklace for a little bit of contrast.

i really want this bracelet, but i decided for now to just fake it on my own! i gathered all the silver chain bracelets i have, 2 from lisa, one from sean, and one knock-off tiffany bracelet, and piled them all together!
dress/skirt – target
bathing suit – old navy
sandals – walmart
hat – urban outfitters
citta design sent me this bag - i love it! its way bigger than i was expecting, but it was actually perfect for the beach and will make a great overnight bag. the colors are really fun, the fabric is high quality and the leather straps are soft and comfortable.
i loved that it zipped up for time at the beach, so little feet couldn’t accidentally kick sand in it. it was so roomy that i was able to fit 3 towels, a pile of magazines, my phone protected in a zippered pouch, sunscreen, my water bottle, and assorted rash guards and t shirts… and there was still room to dig around!
