what i wore wednesday

wiww banner

welcome to what i wore wednesday!  i started this weekly post to force myself out of my sweats and jammies, and into some presentable clothes.  after a few years of doing this, i still definitely have my jammie days, but for the most part i take a few minutes every day to focus on myself and i feel so much better when i do!  if you are in need of some motivation, join us!


the kids and i were walking downtown, so i had them snap a couple pics down bubble gum alley.  the place both intrigues and disgusts me!

    Girl, your hair is getting LONG! It’s beautiful. I love the red shirt. And I see you’re rocking the “front tuck” in that first picture. I’d love to see how it looks in the back. Do you leave it hanging long, or do you fold some of it up inside? I tried it this week with a tee. :-)

      thanks jo-lynne! i’ll have to take a picture of the back next time. i leave it hanging out in the back. its awkward trying to purposefully make it look unpurposeful (the front tuck). i prefer seeing the waist band because it looks a little cleaner, but the full tuck looks so conservative and stuffy some days!

    the red shirt looks awesome on you! i shy away from red also, i guess because it is so bright, but i need to get more red shirts too!

    i always enjoy your posts! so uplifting!

  13. 16

    I think I have told you this before, but I really LOVE your style! Can I just raid your closet? ha! LOVE the Target sandals, my size wasn’t available online (boo!) I’ll keep checking back and the red looks SO great on you!

      just a heads up: i ended up buying the sandals a full size smaller than i normally wear, so maybe try that?

    You look great in red. It took me a while to work out what you meant by ‘bubble-gum alley’. Then I realised. And I am going for disgusted!! I would think it would come out and get me if I walked down there so I think you’re brave. Thanks so much for hosting!!

    Hey Lindsey, thanks for hosting What I Wore Wednesday. I’m loving your Love graphic Tee. I’m on the hunt for another t-shirt that really says Me.

    Love that red shirt from the Stitch Market! Do they have an online store?

  19. 23

    Ewww, that bubble gum alley would freak me out!

    But I love your new sandals, and (as always) those polka dot jeans. :)

  20. 24

    I have those same Target sandles…even in Australia! Woo hoo for Target, I would be virtually ‘nakid’ without them. I normally don’t comment but your style is so natural and unfussy and it really inspires me. I have to wear a uniform 9 days a fortnight and struggle with the other 5 days and I always pop in and check out whats going on in your closet for some unfrumpy, affordable inspiration. Thank you!

    Love those sandals from Target!! I need to get myself a pair ASAP! That red shirt looks great on your, as does the curls in your hair:)

  22. 26

    Love those Target sandals! They’re perfect for Summer. XX!

  23. 27

    Cute outfits as always!!

    Those black sandals from Target are super cute! And, you look great in red. That top is very flattering and your curled hair is cute. I’m not one to fix my hair (especially curl it) because it is intimidating and I often end up turning it the wrong way and getting weird creases.
