What I Wore Wednesday – Flip Flops And Flannel

I had a small obsession with flannel last winter and was super excited to bust out the tote full of winter and fall clothes.  The flannel and flip flops will probably only last a few weeks, but I am loving it!  This week I was able to put together three ultra comfortable outfits that worked great for this mom on the go as an alternative to the old sweatshirts and yoga pants. 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...

What I Wore Wednesday – Ready For Fall

I am so relieved that the fall like weather has arrived here in Wisconsin.  I have got the sweatshirts, boots, flannel shirts, and leggins out of the closet and am excited to add a bunch of my clothes back into the wardrobe. Here’s hoping that I can keep up with the whole idea of getting out of my pajamas to run the kids to school when I could easily just throw on a sweatshirt and go.
