happy wednesday! thanks for joining me for another wiww. if you’re new here and wondering what all this hullabaloo is all about, here’s the deal: i started taking pictures of my weekly outfits a couple years ago to keep myself accountable to actually getting dressed every day. as a stay-at-home mom, it was so easy to stay in my pj’s or sweats all day long. but if i had to take pictures, i would put a little extra effort into myself. now we’re not talking a ton of extra time – just a few minutes. wanna join me? link up below! be sure to look through all the lovely links – you can get a lot of real life inspiration!
cooler mornings and evenings with perfectly warm days call for cardigans! this asymmetrical cardigan is a favorite of mine that my sister gave me when i tried to steal hers.
cardigan – all saints
v-neck t-shirt – forever 21 (like $4?)
jeans – forever 21
flats – payless
i’m loving the fit of these jeans – not quite skinny jeans and not quite boyfriend cut – the perfect in between.
necklace – lisa leonard designs
cardigan and ruffle top – banana republic
jeans – forever 21
black suede wedges – payless
i’m trying to figure out my style all the time. maybe because it keeps changing? i am loving finding the mix of comfort (always) and style. this top gives the feeling of casual (with a little shimmer of gold!) and the polka dots and ballet flats give it a girly edge. i’d love to find a vintage inspired concert t to try with the same outfit.
other than earrings, i didn’t wear any jewelry. what would you wear with this? i couldn’t decide.
and i put my hair in sponge curlers the night before and felt like i had prom hair! too bad it only looked like this while i dropped my kids off at school then i worked up a nasty sweat in the yard until it was time to pick them up again.
cardi – forever 21
t-shirt – target
skinnies – target
flats – payless
wristlet clutch – the pleated poppy
its not too often i make stuff for myself, but i kept eyeing this bag so i finally took it! it is just the right combo of colors and prints – just super happy!
and for a small bag, it packs a big punch! look at all i fit in there: sunglasses in a sunnies case, a tiny pouch holding cash, credit cards and i.d., checkbook, phone, eye drops, pens, chap stick and lipliner. and it all hangs from a handy dandy wrist strap! i don’t normally go for matchy matchy, but i die of cuteness a little everytime i take out my coordinating tiny pouch to pay for anything! (yes, i’m a dork).
if i still had babies in diapers, i would use a clutch to corral diapers and wipes, rather than letting them float all over my bigger bag. somedays i tuck a clutch into my messenger bag so i have the option to go smaller and also organize my bigger purse.
