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 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.


just the classics.

white shirt – target \\  jeans – forever 21 \\ sandals – glittered by me \\  necklace & earrings – lisa leonard designs \\  belt – target


love tee – forever 21 (i loved my first one so much, i bought 2 the last time i spotted them!) \\  jeans – stitch fix \\ wedges – american eagle outfitters \\  earrings – lisa leonard designs \\  tassel necklaces – made by me

note on the necklaces:  i haven’t had it in me to sell anything since i closed my shop, but i will be listing some items most likely this week (these necklaces included)!

    I don’t get to go to Forever 21 so often because we don’t have it here in Italy (boo). But I LOVE those jeans. I’m going to see if I can order some from one of the other EU countries. Do they run pretty true to size??

    Those jeans are so good on you. What an awesome pair that you received. Jeans are tough to fit and they fit you perfectly. I love the items you paired them with. I also love your hair on your kids’ first day of school.

    Thank you for hosting!
