What I Wore Wednesday- Week 19

If you are new to What I Wore Wednesday, here is a quick refresher...
Lindsey at the Pleated Poppy started her What I Wore Wednesday posts about a year ago in an effort to change her habits of hanging out in pjs and softie pants all day. Just because she stays home to work and home school her kids, doesn't mean she can't be cute (seriously-she is too stinking cute, even IN her softies!). Since she started her WIWW link ups, tons of women all over the world are putting themselves out there in blogland each week in an effort to share, inspire, and just be's my Week 19:
Wednesday- Preschool drop off, then home with the girls, 2 and 4 yrs old. Nothing exciting today. OK, here's the thing- do you know Kendi? you know- 30 for 30. Yeah- well, last week she wore a long sleeved tee over a collared button down and I thought- WOW- so stinking cute! So I tried it. (Update: I just searched back for her tee and button down look- guess what- she did it AGAIN this week. and it STILL looks amazing on her!!

*Bad picture, bad combo, bad, bad, bad. Luckily- It was chilly so I really wore it like this all day-

Gray tee- Target
3/4 sleeve green and blue button down- Old Navy
Gray wool button down sweater- American Eagle
Teal ruffled scarf- Eclectic Elegance
Jeans- American Eagle- Artist fit.
Wireless remote shutter- gift from Breadwinner years ago- finally playing with it regularly again!
Thursday- playdate with our friends the Lotts. Don't remember being exceptionally cute, but I didn't take a pic- so we'll never know.
Friday-Preschool, then home to get ready for our big visitor weekend due to the Super Bowl.

In the evening Breadwinner, the girls, and I loaded up for a friend's 5th birthday party locally. I swapped the pink cardi for my dark gray ruffled jacket from NY and Co, a pearly/rhinestoney necklace gift from a friend, and a purple flower clip in my hair- oh and of course, the plum ruffled flats. No pic- which is too bad, because it was super cute!
Sunday-With a house full of family Steelers fans- we watched in agony. Maybe next year guys.

End of the day, Breadwinner snapped a few pics outside with Little Sister.
Her long sleeved Steelers tee came from Old Navy, Yellow tulle skirt-Carter's outlet-Yeah Gramm!

Monday-home with the girls and another playdate with our friends the Snees and Bystrom's. First trip up to the 'new' house! Didn't remember to take a pic, again.
Tuesday-Preschool. I'm working there now to help with some major new projects on campus- including staff pics today- only while the girls are in school.

PS I keep thinking I'm 'trying new things' with my existing wardrobe, but I feel like every week looks the same. What do you think? What can I do for variety? besides get out of the jeans e-v-e-r-y s-i-n-g-l-e d-a-y...

Love the white skirt! I think it looks adorable with the sporty t! How fun for a 'non' jeans day!

Dee said...

I love your skirt and the Steelers T is so cute! Oh and the tulle skirt is pretty amazing too!!

Amy said...

Love the necklace you wore game day although I can't say the same about the shirt :)

kris said...

I actually love your "80's" look. I purchased a white linen skirt and it's just not working out with the "winter white" legs. Love you in gray and fuschia as well. Great job!

Sarita said...

LOVED you superbowl outfit, so cute! And your hair looked awesome!

Your tuxedo shirt was really cute too - maybe if you wore some a shorter colorful necklace that pulled out colors from the the tie, OR wear the long necklace but try a leather belt. It's fun to try things :-)

I know how you feel honey and you are trying new things which is good, some things may not feel so comfortable but you do look really cute, it just different for you. I love the first look and the tuxedo shirt and the 80's girl is lovely. Good week honey, spring is on its way and we will all be making a change. Have a great week and keep trying new things, it is working. axxx

You are so funny. I wish I could be as transparent as you are! I love the Super Bowl outfit with skirt/t/hair done- ADORABLE! Thanks for sharing! You CAN rock the button up underneath the long sleeved t. I only did it because I had the t & not a grey sweater. The 2 will become friends, eventually! LOL
