Goodbye Easter, HELLO White

By now you know, last year I joined Lindsey at the Pleated Poppy in linking up with her quest to make more of an effort on herself each day. Just because she works from home, home schools her kids and rarely leaves the house, doesn't mean she should stay in softy pants all day-and neither should I!
What started as making a bigger effort in my daily wardrobe, has become a daily fashion show.
It's fun to get dressed. I'm happier. It's a beautiful quest.
Thanks for joining me for another week with Lindsey and now-
SO many fun fashion link ups! So much inspiration!
Tell me this- do you really care when I wear what I wear? Or do you just want the outfit deets?
Leave me a comment and let me know what you want to hear.

Those shoes ARE fabulous!!! I am LOVING the look of white pants right now, especially those crops! Think I might just have to find me some!

Mom of the Twinkies and Tot! said...

LOVE those heels! What fun! & you are looking quite slim in these...I'm guessing having the sickies & being super busy is the culprit! The first outfit is cute & comfy looking as well!

You look so cute! I took a three week hiatus when I was feeling ick from being newly pregnant and fighting a horrible cold - now way I would have looked so cute as you did in your two outfits over the sick days. I agree those are some awesome shoes with the white pants!
