    Your daily outfits are so curated. Do you think that you’ve gotten much better at putting an outfit together since you started WIW? I find that because of my blog and the possibility of taking an instagram photo or a picture for a blog post that I have become quicker at deciding what to wear and am generally more put together and happy.

    Not sure if you ever linkup, but I’ve started a real mom street style linkup on my blog and you are very welcome to join! The traffic may not be extraordinary but there are some fantastic moms that link up and some excellent inspiration for normal moms everywhere!

    And could you do a post on how to get those beach waves?

      i do think i’ve gotten better! i look back at my first posts and they are very different from now. but its all been a great process, and it totally has helped me to figure out what works well for me.

      i’d love to do a post on my curl technique, but i just have to figure out how to photograph it!

    Your hair definitely deserved a 2nd look! It looks great all the time, but the curls just worked! Love your use of camo pants. Inspiring to get mine out of the closet and wear them! Thx.

    Love all the outfits, as usual. Love your hair curly/wavy. How did you do it?

      i need to do a post on it – its super easy! i use a 1.5″ (i think) curling iron, lost of hairspray and bobby pins. once i curl a piece, i roll the curl up and pin it to my head until my whole head is done and cooled, then let it down.

    Love your camo pants!! Thanks for the link up.

    Your hair is beautiful! Can I ask what you do to curl it?
