what i wore

Did you notice i completely forgot to post “what i wore” last week?  after doing it every single week for several years, i felt kind of like a rebel (once i realized i had forgotten)!  and since we were traveling a bit, i really hadn’t taken any pictures, so i didn’t have anything to share.  besides that, i pretty much stayed in my pajamas 90% of christmas week, as it should be.

if you are new here, hi!  i’m lindsey.  i have been blogging for over 9 years and have been doing these “what i wore” posts for at least 6 i think.  i am not a fashion blogger.  i’m not super fancy.  i don’t have a huge clothing budget.  but after many years of posting pictures of my daily outfits, i have begun to see what items have become staples in my closets, which styles fit my body type, what looks bad, and what works for my lifestyle.  i’m a mom to 3 biggish kids and homeschool a few days a week.  i try to link to all the items i feature, but really so much of what i wear i have owned for years, so i try to find similar items at a reasonable price that you might love, too!

    Its wonderful you took time off for yourself during the holidays, and I agree its a great time to be in lounging wear :-) I am glad What I Wore is back. This is another casual look at its best. I love the layering and the white skinnies. Happy Wed! XOXO, Elif
