what i wore wednesday

hellooo!  welcome to our weekly edition of what i wore wednesday!  if you are new here and think i’m crazy for posting pictures of what i wear each week, you’re right.  but there actually is a reason behind it:  i needed some motivation to get out of my pjs and sweats so i started posting pics of myself to use my blog as an accountability platform.  and guess what?!  it totally worked!  now, i still definitely lounge around in cozies, but its much less often and i feel so much better when i put a little effort into myself.  if you’d like to join us, link up at the bottom of this post!  there really aren’t any rules, just as long as its some sort of a fashion post, not a craft project or anything!

wow, i look thrilled to have my pics taken!  i was working, it was late, and sean was kind enough to oblige.

top and jeans – forever 21

sandals – target

necklace – thrifted from ruby rose

even though its summer, it still is chilly in the mornings and evenings here, so i pretty much still live in cardigans.

cardi – target

i *loved* this outfit!  i felt so bold mixing stripes with floral, then adding the belt.

cardi, belt & top – forever 21

trouser jeans – target

wedge sandals – old navy

as much as i loved the cardi with the outfit, it was too hot this day to wear it, so i just wore the top solo.  and still loved it.  super comfy and forgiving.

and this may be my newest favorite outfit!  i wore this for church.

cardi & flats – target

tank – old navy

skirt – forever 21

necklace – allora handmade (i need this in e.ver.y color.  for reals)

what really makes me smile?  freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, mmmmm!

i think i may take more pictures here – i love the light above my kitchen sink!

new products in the shop!

i have listed 3 new clutches in my shop today.  they are each really different from one another, but are all crazy cute (i may be a bit biased, not sure)!

this is a newer version of a previous sunny skies clutch – and i love these colors together!  i also love the contrast between the chunky corduroy and the delicate lace ruffle.

i really really had a hard time listing this clutch.  i think it would look better on my wrist than in the shop!  but i’ll be a giver and list it here for you!  the chevron, grass green, and charcoal grey are a powerful combination!

on the other end of the spectrum is this sweet little  pieced clutch.  i wanted it to feel a little bit prairie with its reproduction floral prints, but chic too with the modern rosy dots.  this clutch screams to be worn with jeans and a t-shirt and some chucks, maybe for a walk downtown to get some frozen yogurt.

also, be sure to check back in my shop soon for more reversible pillow covers!
