what i wore


welcome to what i wore!  join me each week as i share my weekly outfits – just real clothes for real women.  i don’t have a huge shopping budget (i don’t know if i have a set shopping budget at all!) and i don’t dress super fancy, but when i get out of my yoga pants and into real clothes, i just feel better. another note: you will see me wear the same things over and over again week to week.  i only have so many items in my closet so i either stick with what i know works, or i try a new combination with old items.  looking through the hundreds of other women who link to the bottom of this post helps me come up with outfit ideas. another huge help: pinterest!  i compile lots of outfits on there that i think i could pull off or have most of the components of it.  super helpful.

we’re still out on the road in our rv – this week started in bass lake and now we’re in oregon.  if you want to follow along with our adventures daily, you can see it all on instagram!


lily took this picture of me while we were at my parents’ house in bass lake for a super short trip.  it was a really warm day spent mostly in the water with a quick trip on the boat over to the forks (best hamburgers in the world).

top – golden tote \\  shorts – target \\  gold sandals –  old navy


keeping it real:  most days i’m in jammies or lounge wear.

pj pants – old navy \\  sweatshirt (current favorite) – zoe clothing company


we went into portland for the day, so i felt like i should put a little effort into myself.


necklace – lisa leonard designs \\  t-short – forever 21 \\  jeans – forever 21 \\  flats – target

    I think its great that your WIW includes your PJ days! It’s so true, the summer is also about relaxing and taking a break from the regular routine of getting ready! And is it possible that you make lounging in pijama pants look stylish?

    Um, I love that you are keeping it real and adding a picture of you in your pjs. With all of these fashion blogs and people always looking flawless, I was starting to wonder if I was the only one who just hung out like that anymore!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thank you!
