Headbands and Spring meets Winter

Back again for another What I Wore Wednesday.
I'm joining Lindsey and hundreds of other women stretching our wardrobes and inspiring each other through fashion. It feels great to jump out of my comfort zone more each week. This week is all about the head wear. It's a quick way to dress up a less than lovely wet or second day hair pony tail or sass up an outfit. I had fun re-purposing Spring pieces for Winter. Not a true winter- let's face it- 50 and 60 degree days- not Winter.
Wednesday-working on the website and blog at the Preschool. Last time I wore a headband like this they all called me Pocahontas. Today, they asked if I was going to a Hippie Rally. *sigh*
dress work as a tunic-Tucker for Target, caramel belt-Target, skinnies-Forever21
are you loving the sassy child as much as I am?! Kennedy is holding Rapunzel wearing a Barbie wedding dress
Photobucket   yummy booties-Charming Charlie, mustard boho headband- Sugar Blossom Boutique
the girls dressed themselves today. Madison wore the pants to her new Hello Kitty outfit from Aunt Darlene and Uncle Michael with a Spring dress from Crazy 8, and a long sleeve tee from Crazy 8
Kennedy wore her special Hello Kitty outfit with her brown boots- and yes, her pant leg looked like that most of the day. Silly girls.
I got this long sweater at Anthropologie in December. I was shopping with with a friend and fell in love with the price tag, but wondered how/if I would ever wear this. She asked the question- 'Are you buying it because the price is insane for an Anthro sweater? or would you buy it for that price at Old Navy, too?' What an awesome way to look at a purchase! It's too easy to get caught up in the 'Anthro' of it all. This outfit seems successful, but I could definitely use some pointers on other ways to style it. The first time I wore this outfit was the day I started spotting. I thought I would never wear the sweater again- but it still makes me happy- what do you think?
Breadwinner didn't believe I'd put these silly photos in the post.

Thanks for stopping by for another week of fun!
Oh, and don't forget- I'd love some suggestions on how to style that red Anthro sweater and your feelings on it.

I love the long sweater and the necklace - how about wearing it over your skinny jeans with your booties? I would love to see a picture of that to see if it works. I'm not very good at the long sweaters - almost bought one at the thrift store because it was holister, but like you, I was afraid I would not wear it.

The Anthro sweater outfit is definitely my favorite! No big fashion inspiration from me, other than maybe wearing it buttoned up with leggings or skinny jeans? Wait...does it have buttons? Love it though, definitely a good buy.

Love the Anthro sweater and the necklace looks great with it! I love turquoise and red together so maybe you can try that combo?

I'm doing a giveaway for a $50 maurices giftcard on my blog so be sure to head on over and enter!

You look so cute as always! I really love the Anthro sweater! It goes well with the Allora necklace!

Stacy said...

Love the anthro sweater and all the fun headbands! I think the sweater would also look fab w/skinny jeans - open or "closed" with a belt :-)

very cute outfits, I love all the headbands I have a headband obsession. My favourite outfit is the stripped dress and the headbands you wore with it is just the icing on the cake . I also wanted to send you some hugs, I've gone through a miscarriage between having my first and second child and I've had 2 pregnancies that were threatened miscarriages that I carried to term. I took comfort in the fact that it wasn't the time. That I needed to know the baby was there but it wasn't time.. I now have 3 beautiful children. It can be hard but God does have a plan for us that doesn't always coincide with our plan.

I love the Anthro sweater, as well (doesn't matter where its from!). Aside from what you wore it with, I'd pair it with skinnies or with trouser pants (making sure you wear something fitted on top with the trousers, though).
I never knew Charming Charlie had shoes! OOOH!
