what i wore

wiww banner

i know, i know – it’s tuesday!  and this is “what i wore wednesday“.  but with tomorrow being christmas, i thought that a one-day bump would be just fine.

share with me your fashion posts and we can inspire each other!  i started this originally as motivation to get out of my daily uniform of jammies or sweats, but now i am encouraged and held accountable to put a few extra minutes aside for myself and try new things.  i’d love for you to join me!
