what i wore wednesday

welcome to what i wore wednesday!  in case you’re new here, here’s a little background on what all this craziness is about:  after years of staying home with my kids, my effort in the style department was in serious decline.  i mean, i felt like putting on sweats and a baseball hat was getting dressed!  most days i didn’t bother getting out of my pj’s.  one day i decided to start posting pics of my daily outfits on my blog to motivate myself to put a little more effort into my appearance.  and so my weekly post of “what i wore wednesday” was born!

    You look adorable in all of your outfits! I was just saying to my daughters last night that I need to start dressing better when I’m not working, and when I do work I were scrubs which are like pj’s. I’m so content to stay in pj’s all day or sweats and a baseball cap with no make-up. As I’m typing this… I’m thinking how pitiful I am :-( I think to day I will go to Old Navy and Forever 21 and treat myself to a couple of things. We also have an H & M, which is a fun store too…XoXo

    Those polka dot pants are awesome!!!! But I think the black and white striped tee with the cardi and the bright pink flower is my fav. You are just as cute as can be!

    Am i the only one who has realized that next Wednesday is Halloween? (Maybe not, but I don’t get to read all the posts) Because they are going to let us dress up at work, my outfit next week will be a Halloween costume =)

  21. 21

    Thanks for the inspiration! I’m trying to get out of a sweat pants wearing rut. I recently started working from home & got very lazy (with respect to getting dressed properly) very quickly! This is my first time linking up, but hopefully won’t be my last!

    I especially love the Lisa Leonard necklace!

  22. 22

    Love your outfits this week, Lindsey! My favorite is the first one, I think that sweater is really fun! Sometimes, when I end up staying at home for days, I do have to force myself to dressed out of my comfy home clothes, because even if it’s for a walk to grab coffee around the neighborhood, getting dressed can really boost my mood and I even feel more productive afterwards. Thanks one more time for hosting this link-up!


  23. 23

    Your house looks so cute! Have you ever done a post on a tour of your house?


  24. 24

  26. 26

    I think you look adorable in every outfit and am so glad you do this hop. I always am inspired by the looks/blogs I visit!

    I just wanted to say thank-you for doing this link-up every week! I find that when I get really busy or stressed, often the first thing to sink into the mud is how I’m dressing myself and how I am FEELING about myself. Thank-you for encouraging us all to make the effort to ENJOY our femininity every day of the week! I know it has been really helpful for me! :)

    Your white Old Navy top is perfect! Seriously, I’ve been searching for something just like that. I may have to go run out and buy one – even if it’s at full price! :)

    Ohmygosh, that first sweater is just the cutest thing ever!! LOVE it! And that last outfit is adorable- straight out of an Anthropologie catalog! I love this link up so much :)

    I’ve never linked up for a WIWW post. First timer here. Just realizing I need to work on my wardrobe a little bit/a lot. It’s getting pretty frumpy in my closet. :( Great inspiration.

  32. 32

    LOVE those gray polka dot pants!

  33. 33

    LOVE the grey outfit with the stripes and dots!
    And the cute cardi in your first outfit – adorable (It kind of looks like a cute elephant with ears and trunk – is that just me?)
    Thanks for hosing as always! :)

  34. 34

    You know, of all the things in my closet, I don’t have a white shirt. It seems like a good wardrobe staple. Perhaps I’ll drop by Old Navy too!
