what i wore wednesday

hullo!  if you’re new here, hi!  i’m lindsey, a stay at home mom to 3 kids (9, 7 & 5), wife to 1 (duh), and a handmade shop owner.  i started what i wore wednesday long ago because as a stay at home mom, i had a really hard time finding the motivation to get dressed every day.  jammies were so comfy, and changing into sweats truly seemed like a step up for me.  yikes!  so i decided to give myself a kick in the pants and post my daily outfit pictures on my blog.  i knew i wouldn’t want you all to see me in my jammies too much, so i started putting effort into my clothing choices.  if you are in a similar situation, join me here every week!  you can get tons of inspiration from other real women and maybe one day you’ll be brave enough to link up!

aaaand, it does happen to be very close to the biggest shopping day of the year, so if you are the type that likes deals and sales and fun stuff, sign up for my newsletter for exclusive offers and sneak peeks and previews and happiness!  oh, and you should do it now, k?

i love this silicone watch!  i was first drawn in by the color, but a little unsure of the blingy face, but i actually love it!  its a fun little pop of color to a really simple casual outfit.

about everyday icing:

everyday icing accessory auctions was born from a love for designer jewelry, but not designer prices. cousins, kim and jari, are busy moms with a budget to watch and we love how a fantastic piece of jewelry can make any outfit special. It’s least expensive way to take an outfit from plain to fabulous!

how does their business work?

everyday icing combines social media and shopping. two of our favorite things! Simply “like” their facebook page (www.facebook.com/everydayicingaccessoryauctions), then click on the gear icon and add them to your “interest list”. then you won’t miss a thing!

visit their facebook page every monday evening at 9pm eastern (starting november 26th) to buy the sweetest accessories at the sweetest prices! the prices are fixed and the quantities are limited. when they’re gone, they’re gone. so be quick! you can register ahead of time by clicking on the “register” tab. then you just comment “SOLD!” on any pieces that you can’t resist.

they invoice through paypal and domestic shipping is always free!

they’ll be giving away some fabulous jewelry on their page, so stay tuned!

so do me a favor and go “like” their page – i already did!

      yes!!! i just got it a few days ago – buy 1, get 1 at 75% off! the sizing is a little funny. i had to go a size larger because it was tight across the shoulders, so its a little looser than i’d like through the hips, but i still love it!
