what i wore

wiww banner

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 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.  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.

what i wore

i have no pictures of my own to share this week since we were traveling, but my outfits consisted of loungewear and snowboarding clothes, neither of which are super exciting!  so instead, i decided to share with you a bit of my recent pins on my wiww pinterest board.  i use my pinterest board for a few things:  to pin outfits and clothes i love, to pin my own outfits so i can see them all in one place when i need an idea of what to wear, and to pin things that i’m hoping to buy (so i don’t forget where i saw them!).

apparently, i’ve been on a neutral kick with my pins, and i have also noticed that is reflected in my outfits i’ve been wearing lately.  i do love color, but there’s something so classic about neutrals!  here are a few of my favorite recent pin… just click on the picture to take you directly to the pin.

this is just a sweet, simple spring or summer dress.  the fit is perfect!  the thing i struggle with most with dresses is finding one that is long enough, and this one is just right.

the gold watch and sequined clutch upgrade this simple cardigan and t-shirt outfit to something beautiful!

i’m definitely not cool enough to pull off leather pants, but i love the detailed stitching on these and the zippered ankle.  and of course, pairing anything with converse is my favorite!

just a simple cream shirt with a slight bohemian vibe.  works with cutoffs or jeans or a long maxi skirt.

what is it about this jacket?!  i love it!  i love a motorcycle jacket, but i think i could actually pull off this one in white.

this is a great twist in a maxi skirt, and a little more forgiving on the figure.  i love the girlies of the fuller skirt.

this outfit, head  to toe, is me.  i would wear every bit of it!  except the wedges… the are a couple inches too high for me!
