what i wore

wiww banner

if you’re new to what i wore, welcome!  i started wiww years ago as an attempt to keep myself accountable to get dressed everyday (ex: not wearing pajamas).  to do this, i took a picture of what i wore everyday, then posted those pics each wednesday.  thus “what i wore wednesday” was born!  and if you’re wondering, it worked!  i slowly began to realize that i didn’t like photographing myself in my pj’s because i didn’t like how i looked in my pj’s.  and on the days i was dressed i felt better about myself and was more productive.  amazing how that works, right?

over the years, i have become more comfortable to try new things and step out of my fashion comfort zone a little at a time.  i’ve added in accessories, color, and patterns that i wouldn’t have before.  if you are looking for a little motivation, either to simply get dressed, or to try to push yourself a little more, join us!

confession:  i wore this outfit 2 days in a row.  and i’m thinking about wearing it again!  it was so comfy!  i visited the zoe clothing company booth on saturday at the queen bee market and they gave me this adorable sweatshirt (and something for the rest of my family as well!).  i love the wide neckline!

    Love the Zoe website, definitely going to order. Wondering what size you got in the sweatshirt? They don’t have a size chart. Im a size 8 generally and usually a s/m in shirts. :)
