what i wore wednesday {guest blogger – gussy}

happy wednesday, everyone!

this week my friend gussy hijacked my blog for what i wore wednesday.  ok, really i begged her to do it for me, and she was sweet enough to say yes.  thank you gusgus!


Hi friends, it’s Gussy of Gussy Sews, and today I’m sharing my WIWW posts with all of you ♥

I’ve finally broken away from my mindset that “I have nothing to wear”! And it makes me happy, because not only do I feel like I have more outfits to wear but I feel like I have CUTE things that I forgot about. And “cute” can mean whatever you want it to. Anything that makes me feel good about myself makes me feel cute :]


My husband & I live in Minneapolis, and while it’s normally not warm enough
in the winter to wear a dress with leggings, I did last week.

Blue dress, TJ Maxx — white t-shirt, gray leggings, heart mug, Target — petal drop necklace, Pleated Poppy

I L O V E the ruffled details on this dress! And the scallops. And shade of blue.

Below is one of my favorite shirts…
I love the b&w plaid paired with the ruffle down the front ~
it’s so comfy and perfect for a day of sewing.

plaid shirt, Gap — white tank, Target — skinny jeans, Target — button bracelet, Lisa Leonard — pink nail polish, OPI {a favorite!}

When I wear this top I feel like a farm girl.
Except that I live in the city

One thing I want to add back into my wardrobe is lots of color,
and lots of colors that aren’t 100% matchy matchy.
I’m always envious of the girls that wear such a funky color palette.
So, I think it’s time to get over that envy and just DO IT for myself, right? :]

This outfit was for a full day of work: interviewing, email answering, sewing.

purple cardigan, yellow/gray striped tank & skinny jeans, Target — turquoise & green necklace, Old Navy

My mother-in-law gave me this necklace for Christmas a couple of years ago.
The different sized beads makes it so fun!

Wishing you a happy week!

    Gussy-love the curls! Do you use product in them? They look so soft and pretty!!

    • 13

      ohhh, thank you! :]
      i use a pomade from Aveda — i think it’s called “defining whip”? and i use a little waxy spray by pantene pro-v. and hair spray. aerosol (herbal essences, orange can).

      this combination *does* give you soft & pretty curls ;]

    You are so cute, Gussy! My wardrobe, too, consists of lots of Target clothes! Gotta love that Target!

  23. 26

    I have a red shirt like Gussy’s “farm girl” shirt. It was AWESOME when I wore it in Germany. They’re obsessed with all things western. But here? My husband’s like, “Oh my gosh. Please oh please don’t wear that.”

    It is farm girl country! ;)

  24. 27

    target cardigans rock my socks off–love gussy’s purple one! {honestly can we have a discussion about how perfect cardigans are? the perfect piece of clothing…)

    i own FAR too many.

  28. 31

    Gussy, you are just too adorable! And I don’t know what you’re talking about needing to add color to your wardrobe…it looks so colorful already! And I love the necklace from your MIL! Nice to see you on WIWW!

  29. 32

    Gussy, you have great style! I couldn’t agree more that something is cute as long as it makes you feel good about yourself. One thing I’ve learned from stalking weeks of WIWW posts, is that it’s about being comfortable and confident in who you are and not comparing yourself to someone else. Great job on mixing colors! I usually play it safe and stay pretty matchy matchy, but you’ve inspired me :) I always look at the Boden catalog for inspiration but never feel like I can pull it off. Thanks for doing a guest WIWW post for Lindsey.

    Thanks, Lindsey for hosting the fun!
