what i wore

wiww banner

 hey friends, welcome to what i wore!  after years of staying at home with my kids i began to “let myself go”.  i started this to motivate myself to just get dressed – put a few minutes into myself to feel better for the whole day!  if you are finding yourself in this same situation, i want to encourage you to join us –  this really works!  take a look at all the other ladies joining me – real women wearing real clothes!

these few weeks are an exception to my normal routine.  i’m working 7 days a week to renovate the thrift store our school just took over, so my attire reflects that!  i did manage to find 2 pictures that shows a glimpse at what i wore.


overalls.  yes, overalls.  i only own them because they are dang comfy i used to be a painter and would wear them for work.  ok, i wore them for not work before that.  and i also owned several other pairs.  true confessions.


oh look, i found another picture!  actually, i was comparing sizes of mirrors for our dressing rooms, and i just happened to catch my reflection.

as soon as i get home every day, i throw on one of my evy’s tree sweatshirts (this is the one i have on).  not only are they adorable, but they are the softest items in my closet.  and hats a re a necessity as there has been no hair-doing around here for awhile.


but what i’d rather be wearing is this!  if it actually felt like fall here, i’d be rocking this outfit! (pinned here)


or this outfit – so cute, right? (pinned from here)

october love and a free printable

it’s so hard to think that it is already october!  how can it be fall when it’s been in the 80s here?!?  sorry to those of you who are already pulling out the scarves. (which i’m already sewing by the way! should be up in the shop soon!!!)

thought i would keep it short and sweet today and spread some october love.

i’m loving this new print by my friend tina at rooted in paper.
