I have been doing what I wore Wednesday posts once a week for a full month now and I am surprised at how much a little effort has changed how I feel each day! I am really starting to enjoy the things that I already have in my closet. Instead of grabbing the same old t-shirt and yoga pants I’m utilizing the things that I already have in a much better way.
Get the low down on why I am including What I Wore Wednesday posts here, but the main reason is to motivate myself to put in a little extra effort each and every day. What I wore Wednesday is a way for Mom’s to share outfits and get inspired to get dressed even if they aren’t heading off to work each day. The Pleated Poppy has an amazing series where she shares what she wears each week to keep herself accountable for getting out of her pajamas everyday and I’m joining in the fun!
I am a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl at heart, always have been always will be. This week since the weather cooled down a little I was happy to included jeans instead of shorts in my outfits. I came up with three simple jeans and tank top outfits that I felt very comfy and confident in!
Wednesday: Doing hair with my mother and sister in laws.
This was my Pinterest inspired outfit of the week and I loved it lots. Here is the image that I used for inspiration found on the blog Friend In Fashion.
My take on the outfit uses a less than $4.00 tank top that I already had from Walmart. The photo inspired me to try some kind of crazy “rock-star” type hair for the day and I think it was fitting with the outfit!
Tank Top: Walmart $3.88
Jeans: K-mart Clearance $12.00
Black Pumps: Thrifted $3.00
Earrings: Old (I think from Cookie Lee)
Total Outfit cost: $18.88
I have to be honest, the heels did not last long, but I would definitely sport them out on a fun date night or something like that – they are really a great way to fancy up a plain old tank top and jeans!
Hair: I went for a messy version of my natural curls, little product and some backcombing for height. I backcombed, smoothed, and pinned by bangs back. I am really finding that the less I am doing to my hair these days the more I am loving it, which is a great thing for this busy mom!
Thursday: Running errands, taking the dog to the vet, and to a family birthday party with the kids.
Floral Tank Top: TJ max $11.99
Jeans: Thrifted $6.00 (Amethyst brand)
Green Wedges: American Eagle – Payless Clearence $6.00
Total Outfit Cost: $23.99
hair: natural waves in a side braid with messy wavy bangs down. Quick and easy.
Sunday: Family day cooking out and visiting with family and friends
Gray Tank Top/Tunic: K-mart clearance $6.00
White distressed skinny jeans: Rue 21 clearance $12.50
Sparkly sandals: Walmart $10.00
Total Outfit cost: $28.50
I was reluctant to sport the white skinny jeans so a long flowing tunic made me feel a little more comfortable in them. This was a super comfy and fun outfit for a summer day. And we can’t forget to talk about the pink streaks in my hair.
This was one of those impromptu things that I have been really wanted to test out for a while. I have seen many images and tutorials on “hair chalking” over the past several months and have had the chalk pastels just waiting around the house for an opportunity to give it a whirl. We had a spare hour on Sunday morning that I gave it a try. SO FUN – and really very simple to do. I found a process that worked for me and the color stayed in until it was shampooed. Washed right out with no trouble. I will give you a how-to post as soon as I get a chance! As soon as my little lady saw my pink streaks she begged for some too. She choose purple and pink and adored her fun color for the day! I put one streak in to start and then she begged for more. Can’t wait to share with you all how we did it!
Well what do you think? After a month of blogging what I wore for the week I am getting really brave with my style – pink streaks, and white skinny jeans. Never thought I would see the day – especially after spending 3 years in pajama pants all day. Should I keep up the posts or are we more interested in craft projects and recipes?
