welcome to what i wore! this is a weekly post where i simply show you my outfits from the week. i’m a real mom, i home school my kids part time, and work from home when they’re at school twice a week. i don’t have an enormous clothing budget, and love to find new ways to mix and match items already in my closet. if you’re looking for high end fashion, you’re sure to be disappointed! but if you need a little kick in the yoga pants to get you out of your rut, well then i’m your girl!
when it comes to fashion and faith, well, it can get a little tricky. for me, modesty always comes first (and i know we all have different definitions of modesty!). i, by no means, want to overemphasize the importance of outer beauty, but how we look does play a part in how we feel about ourselves throughout the day. when we are happy with how we look, we feel better about ourselves. honestly, i hate that that is true, but it is. but another big reason for me to get dressed every day: my husband. he has never requested that i get out of my pi’s or sweats, but he definitely comments when he likes what he sees! i think getting dressed ever day is good for my marriage and honoring to my husband.
