my latest trick for getting dressed quickly is to re-wear something i wore from the day before.  since i’m out of the sticky-toddler-fingers-getting-wiped-on-my-pants stage i can actually wear pants a few times before i need to wash them.  same with most shirts.

i just swapped out sweaters and boots and i was good to go!  well, and socks and undies and undershirts, too.

after church we pile dour bikes in the car and rode the bob jones trail all the way to avila and back.  with an ice cream stop in the middle.  of course.  this picture doesn’t show it, but it was packed at the beach and on the boardwalk!

  5. 5

    You are a master of layering! I need to take some lessons from you. And you’ve now officially made me want a bike. Immediately. :)

  6. 6

    Love them all! It looks so nice and warm in that bike photo. It’s snowing here in Ohio today! :/

  7. 7

    I love your outfits this week, Lindsey! My favorite is the plaid shirt with the mustard sweater! I also love the simplicity of your outfit with the printed pants. Cute!

  8. 8

    I love the gingham and mustard combo! And kudos for re-wearing clothes…I absolutely love my toddler, but I can’t wait for the day where my clothes don’t smell like cheesey goldfish fingers have been wiped on them :) A girl can dream!

  9. 9

    I love the old navy rain boots you have, so stylish! The sweater and all of your other boots, need to shop your closet! LOL Thanks for hosting!

    Glad to see I’m not the only mama to use the rewear trick. Haha!

  11. 11

    I love that bicycle photo! Sounds like such a fun time!! I can’t wait until it gets warm enough here to go for a bike ride :)


  12. 12

    I do that same trick, with re-wearing clothes and just swapping an item or two (and underpinnings) out!
    Love the bike pic. So envious of your sunshine and weather. Sigh.

  13. 13

    YAY! Finally someone has admitted it with me, I wear the same three pairs of pants all week long. So simple & smart. Um, I never post my whole week because it would look all super similar… so just WEDNESDAYS outfit. lol. Saves on laundry too!

    Thanks so much for hosting What I Wore Wednesdays!

    Hey, I’ve got some similar wellies as you. I switched out the laces with ribbons for fun.

    Hi there, what a fun linky! I’ve linked up for the first time as getting dressed up is my favourite thing about going back to work after my kiddies. My pics are nowhere near as good as yours though!

  17. 17

    I am guilty of the same thing (wearing items twice in a week); although I don’t have kids. On the weekends it’s often easier to thing of a top I wore to work during the week than come up with a fresh outift!


  18. 18

    I just love your laid back California girl, cool mom style. The polka dots jeans a re my favorite!

  19. 19

    Looove your church outfit! The ruffles are adorbs! And your bike riding outfit is perf! :) That’s what my hubby and I are doing today! It’s such beautiful weather!


  20. 20

    I love this idea, such a cute post. Plus I love that colorful front door rug, I just bought one at Target, it’s nice and spring-y.

  21. 21

    Love your 2nd outfit (and that it’s day 2 of half of it… brilliant!!)

  22. 22

    I have to tell you that I was born and lived in California til I was 6. I barely even remember any of it, but I swear, when I see some pictures on your blog, it makes my heart sick, like I’m homesick for something I only remember way way deep down inside me somewhere.

  23. 23

    I love your outfits. I went out and purchased that gingham shirt from F21 because of your post last week!

  24. 24

    It’s a tie for my favorite outfits. The first and last are so cute! You look great!

  25. 25

    Love your polka dot pants!! :)

  26. 26

    You are too cute! I love the plaid shirt!

  29. 29

    This is such a fun link-up! I’ve been following your blog for quite a while and I finally started one of my own so I can finally join in! I am so excited to start participating in the WIWW link-up. Mine is a modest little thing because it’s still a baby, but I would love for you to stop by and visit sometime! I’ll see you next week for my first link! :)

    Spot on with this write-up, I absolutely believe this site needs much more
    attention. I’ll probably be returning to see more, thanks for the info!

    This is the right web site for everyone who really wants to understand
    this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need
    to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a subject that’s been written about for
    a long time. Excellent stuff, just great!
