what i wore

{sorry about the late posting!  i got a little distracted watching jimmy fallon!}

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 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.  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.


i know lots of you only visit my blog on wednesdays to link up, but hop on over to this post where i shared some fall-inspired outfits i put together from forever21.com and target.com while window shopping, just for fun!  i think you’ll like it ;)

    It is hard to pick a favorite. I love all of your outfits, but I love that top in your church outfit with your gorgeous hair down the best. So pretty! Thank you for hosting!

    I love that ensemble you put together from Target.

    The outfit with the shorts and fedora is right up my alley. Although my legs are about 3 inches shorter than yours!

    Thanks for hosting.
