what i wore

wiww banner

welcome to what i wore!  if you’re new here, yay!  wiw is a fun place for outfit inspiration, but also a great place to find motivation.  it is amazing how putting 10 minutes into yourself in the morning can change the way you feel about your day.  on the days that i stay in my jammies (which are more often than i like to admit), i have a lazier attitude and less motivation to get things done.  but when i’m feeling good about how i look, i’m ready for errands, coffee dates, or just answering my door (in something other than said jammies).  if you’re ready to take the plunge, i encourage you to join us.  start taking daily pictures of whatever you’re wearing, whether its yoga pants or work clothes.  once you are keeping yourself accountable to the act of taking pictures, you will want to improve upon what you see in those pictures.  putting on jeans instead of yoga pants, or adding a scarf to your normal oxford and blazer rut… you will see a change!

also, if you are new here, this is not just a fashion blog!  i have a fun handmade shop and i love to share my home and diy projects, too!  stay for awhile and take a look around!

    I really love the blue and white striped skirt from Forever21, can I ask how long ago you got it? Do you think it’s still available. I especially like how you paired it with thick grey tights and a crisp white shirt. The outfit has a nice nautical feeling without being out of season.

    Which Grace and Lace socks are those? I just saw them on Shark Tank and knew I wanted some immediately-but how to choose. I have boots like yours and the ones you have look so cute!

    Wow! This may be my favorite group of your WIWW outfits yet! Your hair was stunning for Thanksgiving! And your church outfit may just be my fave for today only because I am such a fan of pairing charcoal with cognac. You look great in all looks though, really! Thanks for hosting!

    I am so jealous of how you can make even super casual outfits look so cute! I love your Thanksgiving and church outfits so much, but my favorite is probably your last one – love the taupe cardigan and cute scarf. Love all your layers and those cute boot socks – I adored them on Shark tank! :-)
