ok, so this is the necklace that i got from groopdealz awhile back.  and i luuuuuve it.  love it.  a lot.


scroll through the wiww links and you’ll see EVERYONE loves these necklaces.  so i’m not very original.  thats not new.

another funny thing i noticed the last couple weeks:  lots of you have the same polka dotted sweaters from old navy – the white one and the tan one.   we all like a good deal on dots!

    I say you’re entitled to wear your pink skinnies every day if you want to!

  2. 2

    Love those coral skinny jeans! The bubble necklace is becoming a classic… I recently ordered one using a Living Social deal, and I can’t wait to receive it!

  3. 3

    I love that cardigan you wore on your date night!!!

  4. 4

    I would want to wear those pink pants every day too! xo

  5. 5

    I really love your second and third outfits! Lovely :)

  6. 6

    I pinned you because you look TOO CUTE! Now I feel challenged to get with it today for a pulled together look. : ) Everyone looks great in the links! Way to go everyone!

  7. 7

    LOVE those corals skinnies, esp. paired with a chambray!

  8. 8

    Love the turquoise necklace, so fab…all of your outfits are beautiful. Thanks for hosting!

  9. 9

    thanks for hosting, yet again!

    do tell: is that polka dot cardigan a recent purchase from f 21? I saw a polka dot blouse at anthro but it was like $5,000…


  10. 10

    I LOVE that top outfit.

    If I had your legs, I’d live in those cute pants…. and get more colors!

  11. 11

    You always have super great necklaces! I think I recall you mentioning those necklaces in another post and I loved them and have been wanting one but couldn’t recall where you got it from so am super excited so that I can go look them up and get myself one now!!!

  12. 12

    I love this! Real momma. Real style! How can I become a part? I’m in love with the polka dot cardi!

  13. 13


    I have that necklace too…I have it on today! ;)

    And…I went to Old Navy for the polka dot sweater, but they were out of them in my size. I’m going back today though to see if they have skinny cords that fit me. Targets are about 14 inches too long! SHORT LEGS HERE!

    Love these outfits Linds!

  14. 14

    I am the same way with my grey skinnies!

  15. 15

    Get those coral skinnies in before the cold weather for sure! So pretty with the chambray.

  16. 16

    Lindsey you look SO pretty with your hair down!

  17. 17

    I too bought one of those necklaces in coral but from an Ebay seller(I got it for $14.99…woohoo!) However, that was before they were everywhere. Now I’m more inclined to let mine rest on its hook instead of wear it because so many people have them. Oh well.
    And I wanted to let you know that for the past few days when Ive tried to read your posts, some error message comes up and I cant get to your blog. Yours is the only one Ive had this problem with. Just thought you might like to know especially if others had the same problem.
    Happy Wednesday!:)

  18. 18

    Love your outfits, Lindsey!! And those necklaces!

  19. 19

    LOVE the pic of you on the swing – ADORBS!!! And I too LOVE that necklace BUT still haven’t bought it..I worry that when I buy it something even FABBER (IF possible!!) will come out…and so I wait

  20. 20

    Love your cute hair bun!

  21. 21

    I really needed WIWW this week, I’ve been sick and blah and this morning for the first time in days I got up, washed my hair and put on something nice. Thank you! xo

    ps. love all your looks this week :-)

  22. 22

    So, you inspired me to go look for the coral skinnies at Target. They looked horrible on me, but at least they inspired me to go exercise more. :)

  23. 23

    Eeek! Not sure what I did wrong but my link doesn’t seem to be linking and I can’t figure out how to remove it and repost :( Now I look like that turd who doesn’t know how to copy and paste a URL properly…ah well. Looking forward to participating in lots of WIWWs! Your pics are great and I especially love the coral skinnies.

  26. 26


    Love the looks this week. You always look fabulous! I totally copied an outfit from you from a few weeks ago…:) The chambray shirt, black jeans and leopard flats! :) Love it. :)

    What a phenomenal idea! Boy do I need motivation to not wear just my workout clothes (hoping that I might actually get motivated to work out!) every day!
    I am going to try this challenge next week! Thank you!

  28. 28
