What I Wore...When I met LINDSEY!

Last week I asked if you really care when I wear what I wear. Many of you said context is fun- so I'm sticking with it. On with the show...
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.
Being a stay at home mom doesn't mean pj pants are acceptable all day fashion!
What started as making a bigger effort in my daily wardrobe at home, has become a daily fashion show of my life.
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!
 Wednesday-Another lovely day marketing the Preschool
 forgive the horrible end of the day pics and the daily junk pile on the floor
Striped skirt-NY and Co, brown tank-JC Penney, Ruffled cropped jacket- Express, peep toe pumps that look boring in this pic, but I promise are super cute- hmm- Bakers-super old
Earrings and necklace- NY and Co
Thursday-Hanging bulletin boards and new signage at the Preschool
 again with the bad pictures- sheesh!
Chocolate brown cropped jacket- yes, I promise it really is brown despite the horrible photo and seafoam tank-Bitten by Sarah Jessica Parker, Cut-off denim shorts-American Eagle, gray striped flats-gift from mom (Gramm)
 It was warm in the morning, but the wind picked up and it was freezing at night when we took pictures. OOOoooo...chilly

 Flower pony tie in the 80's side pony-Something Diane Made,

Happy belated mother's day! I love the brown cropped jackets and AE shorts- totally cute. I'm also so jealous that you got a bloom belt! Always sold out when I go look, it's looks great on you.
