what i wore

wiww banner

happy wednesday!  thanks for joining me for another “what i wore“.  if you’re new here and wondering what all this hullabaloo is all about, here’s the deal:  i started taking pictures of my weekly outfits a couple years ago to keep myself accountable to actually getting dressed every day.  as a stay-at-home mom, it was so easy to stay in my pj’s or sweats all day long.  but if i had to take pictures, i would put a little extra effort into myself.  now we’re not talking a ton of extra time – just a few minutes.  wanna join me?  link up below!  be sure to look through all the lovely links – you can get a lot of real life inspiration!


alissa from the printed palette sent me this shirt – love it!  i saved it for the opening day of fred & betty’s – that seemed appropriate!

the printed palette is offering my readers 15% off their entire store with code SAVE15!  there are so many great things in their shop!

shirt – the printed palette

jeans – forever 21

flops – rainbow sandals


our week was in the high 80’s and now its in the low… coldies.  i don’t know what the temp is, but it felt chilly all day.  our falls here on the central coast are generally really nice until late october, but we’re getting an unexpected cold snap right now.

you’ve heard my love for all things evy’s tree before, and i’ll say it again!  not only are they adorable, but the softest sweatshirts ever!

sweatshirt – evy’s tree

jeans – local boutique

tennies – converse


there’s my man on top of the triathlon podium – yep, 1st place!

top – forever 21

jeans – local boutique

tennies – coverse

hat – zappos


amy from evy’s tree sent us all matching sweatshirts!  i’m not usually a fan of matching with my girls, but they were soooo stoked to coordinate!  fyi, these gunmetal simples are almost sold out!

and evy’s tree has 2 sales going right now:  their “deal of the month” is buy one full priced hoodie get aBrilla for free,  or you can use the code “PP15” for 15% off!

    You’re looking cute as always this week :) So fantastic your husband came first place in a triathlon! My partner Chris is super into them as well… I can’t imagine swimming, cycling and running for hours on end, so I’m just a loyal supporter / cheer squad!

    Thank you for hosting, I always enjoy linking up! I hope you and your family have a great week,
