what i wore wednesday

hey all!

thanks for joining me for “what i wore wednesday”!  for those of you who are new here, here’s a little history of wiww:  awhile back i realized that as a stay-at-home, work-at-home, homeschooling mom, i had little motivation to get dressed each day.  i felt accomplished if i put on sweats for the day.  then i realized that on the days i did put more effort into my outfits, i felt better.  and my husband got the benefit of seeing me in something other than pj’s!  i started documenting my daily outfits, sweats and all, to keep myself accountable to making a change.  and it’s worked!  wanna do it too?  join us!

    THANKS, I have a striped gap top (blue/white also) and a little yellow cardigan (3/4 sleeved) and I wouldn’t have put those together.

    As soon as I saw that scarf I knew it had to be from India. It is gorgeous!!!
