    Love your looks! Your St. Pat’s day outfit is especially cute, I really like the lace detailing and the little pops of green. I also love how fresh and simple the second look is, too.

  5. 5

    You were super cute this week!! Not that you’re ever not cute- i just love the little details!

  6. 6

    I am so jealous of your short sleeves and that your able to wear flats and sandals without your feet freezing. We still have temps below 30° and over a foot of snow! Your tiger shirt makes me want to wear mine. Maybe today!!!

  7. 7

    Your second outfit is just plain adorable, love it!

  10. 10

    I’m loving your chunky necklaces!

  11. 11

    I just noticed the scarves in that pic. I know you’ve posted about how you display your jewelry but have you done scarves? Mine get folded and shoved in my closet and I totally forget they are there. This would make me wear them more if I actually saw them. Same with jewelry. I haven’t figured that one out yet and I run to pearl studs 9 times out of ten when I have a drawer (or four) full of pretties.

    I love the 1978 shirt, my birth year also I need that shirt too

    Hey Lindsey,

    I love what I wore Wednesday! Your description totally inspired me! I have had so much fun planning what outfit I’ll wear!
    So my computer froze when I tried to link up so my picture didn’t show up right. I linked up again, so I am on the list twice, sorry :( But I was just super sad that it didn’t show off my fun picture which was my favorite part.

    Keep up the fun blog, and have fun at Blissdom… I am totally jealous :)

    You are adorable. All of these women are beautiful and I love that you inspire us to look and feel like the best version of ourselves!

    I love the look of the polka dot cardigan with the fun tee! Such an unexpected look, you totally rocked it.

  16. 16

    I am so in love with that first outfit. That tank is so cute and the shoes, so perfect.

  17. 17

    I noticed that all of your Target clothes/shoes are very cute! I hope they still have those…I can’t wait to pay them a visit and find myself some cute outfits too. :)

    The lace tee has nice subtle detailing. It’s a nice way to pretty up an outfit. {Sigh} 70 degrees sounds heavenly.

    Love the tank and shoes from Target in the first pic…did you get them recently?? :)

  20. 21

    all cute outfits lindsey…but I say take off that cardi and go ALL edgy. it’s cute on you and you can pull it off!

    I’ve been such a flake about taking outfit pics. Same clothes everyday right now. it’s that darn baby/toddler phase that is getting me. at least it’s jeans and not yoga pants!

  21. 22

    I love the first outfit (especially the yellow shoes), and I love the polka dotted jacket, too. Super cute.

  22. 23

    You look so comfy and cute in all of these!

  23. 24

    I love your casual style! I’ve been really diggin the cardigan/tee combos I’ve been seeing! Its an easy go-to when you are doing things with the kids.

  24. 25

    Love all these casual looks!

    So inspiring and such a great idea! I never thought I’d be in a rut but here I am – no makeup, dirty ponytail, sweatpants and all. It might not be such a bad thing to someone else, but me? I look like an extra from The Walking Dead. How did I get here in just two months since leaving my job?!? This makes me want to get my booty in gear and start participating. THANK YOU!

    My book. Club has been reading “Overdressed: the Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion” by Elizabeth L. Cline. The Collette blog had a post about it a few months ago. I’m only a quarter of the way in, but I won’t be buying clothes at Target or F21 anymore. You should read it, it’s fascinating.
