what i wore wednesday

hello friends!

if you are new here, this is where i, along with 300 of my closest friends ;) share my weekly outfits.  i started doing this to get out of the mom rut of wearing yoga pants or even pj’s all day long.  once i started posting pictures of what i wore, i began to realize i needed to make a change.  i did and i feel so much better about myself with just a few minutes of effort.

i have a fun week of outfits to show you!  i was given the opportunity to shop at world market for fashion accessories and find pieces that i could work into my own style.  it was really fun searching for new items, but ones that still felt like me!

i love these bracelets!  the gold beaded ones came in a big set of 15, so i can choose to wear them all together or add a handful to another piece for fun combinations.

multi-strand gold bead necklace – world market

wrap-around watch – world market

this watch is so versatile – it wears like a bracelet more than a watch with the double bands wrapping around twice.  i also love the 2-toned look – the black and taupe make it work well with lots of different outfits.

while i was shopping at world market i had a really hard time deciding what accessories to buy.  (left to right, top to bottom)  the gumball necklace was an easy decision though!  the chunky knit scarf with the huge tassels was so fun, but considering the heat we’ve had here lately, i was sweating by the time i took it off (i may just have to go back for it).  and i am a total slipper girl and love these turquoise slipper socks.  i’m also loving these options for jewelry storage – always looking for new ideas!

even though i was just shopping for accessories, i couldn’t help but wander through the rest of the store!  (left to right, top to bottom)  i showed the pic before of the pile of bedding, but it is so pretty!  and our playroom needs a loveseat and this one would be perfect!  i’m not sure what i’d do with these metal carts, but i am sure that i need them.  this chair has a hidden surprise:  colorful covered buttons do the tufting!  i’m a sucker for colored bowls.  these little whale soap dishes would also be adorable holding rings or loose change!  i have a similar 3 tiered wire basket, but i would love another one on my craft desk.  i really want to add some more industrial touches to my house, and these chairs would be great!  and my little housecleaner, lily, loved this matching dustpan and handheld broom – thats a gift i could really get my money out of!

    Hi Lindsey. I have tried to comment before but I have a hard time posting my comments most of the time. I am Ada and I have been following your blog and linking with you for What I Wore Wednesdays, for a while, now. You have such a nice, professional, versatile blog. Love it.

    I look forward to Wednesdays to see what you wore. I love all the cardigans and necklaces featured in today’s post. You have a beautiful jewelry collection. My favorite outfit is the first one. The 2 flower pins & cozy scarf make it so much more cuter & feminine.

    I would kindly ask for you to stop by my blog when you have a chance and follow me since I am newer to blogging. Much Appreciated.

    Have a Great Week, Ada. =)

    I am new to your site and love the What I Wore Wednesday! I am new to the blogging world and put mine up :)
