what i wore

wiww banner

welcome to “what  i wore“!  i am constantly battling the urge to just not get dressed each day.  i mean, why add more to the laundry pile, right?  but really, i feel so much better about myself when i like how i look and i seem to be just a bit more productive.  and i’m sure my husband prefers real clothes to my sloppy jammies ;)  i have a confession:  its 9:25 pm and i’m still in my pj’s that i wore last night at this time.  sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.  it was one of those days and it was just what i needed.

do you need a little extra help and a little extra motivation?  join us by linking up below.  see all those links down there?  those are all real women.  all ages.  all sizes.  all with different shopping budgets.  simply getting dressed is something we can all do, and it can be done on any budget.  as you can see from most of my outfits, i definitely don’t shop high end.  i’d love it if you join us!

    Such a pretty floral scarf from your shop!
    Love look #2 the best, with your curled hair :)
    Can’t believe it’s in the 80s there!

      yes, its crazy! i’m still trying to wear sweaters, though. shorts and tanks tops seem really weird in january!

    love the coral top in the first picture and the all saints sweater…you have clothes that need to be in my closet!

    I’m so jealous of your weather! We are experiencing a true heat wave (after last week!) of close to 40 degrees. I didn’t even wear my coat home from the gym ;) I love outfit #2. I love the necklace with the top.

  5. 9

    I really love the outfit you wore to the baby shower.

    Send some of that great weather up my way would you?

    I love that first outfit! I’ve seen those Piko tops around. They look so comfortable.

  7. 12

    You are the queen of fun accessories. Love your outfits!! :)

    Thanks so much for hosting such a fun linkup. My favorite look of yours here is the striped sweater and chevron necklace! It’s nice to see someone else in sandals and long sleeves. It’s weird because 80 degree winter days feel different than 80 degree summer days to me. I would be in shorts in the summer, but right now I need pants and even a jacket when the sun goes down.

    I love your outfits this week! You go, girl. Lots of great outfits to share! My favorite is your thrifted top.

    Thanks for hosting!

    Great thrifted top, so feminine and flirty!

  20. 31

    I love all your looks, especially the one you wore for the shower you hosted. LOVE that you wanted to match the shower :)

  21. 32

    The scarf you have is very stylish and it suits almost to any type of clothes of any color. I like such things because they are universal and you don`t have to look for something to combine them with.

  22. 33

    I need to go shopping! I only have a couple of pair of shoes, and one pair is about to fall apart. :/ I love your WIW posts. :)

  23. 34

    such cute outfits! love them all! wow, your hair is so long it looks so pretty!

  24. 35

    The scarf really is adorable. Having said that, nobody rocks a ball cap and raglan t-shirt like you do. You look so cute, and friendly. And really, isn’t that what we all want! Thanks for hosting What I Wore.

    I like the baby shower outfit and the beautiful floral scarf. I have a soon to be 1 year old and a 4 year old so I totally understand spending 24 hours in my jammies! Sometime I just get so occupied by “stuff” and before you know it, its bedtime again lol!
    Thanks for hosting a lovely link up.
