After editing my pictures for the week I noticed that I had a very neutral week. I wore mostly browns, blacks, tans, and gray. While it is kind of uncharacteristic of me, I liked all of the outfits for the week, and still got in a few pops of color here and there. Normal I love a lot of bright colors and fun textures mixed in with my neutrals, but sometimes less is more. I came up with three really simple and budget friendly outfits that have pieces that I wear again and again! One of the pops of color was from a simple jersey scarf that is ruffled, fun, and requires no sewing at all.
In an effort to redeem myself from last week, I worked very hard to come up with four outfits instead of my usual three. I also wanted to do my best to make them super thrifty too. With the combination of clearance and sale price items along with thrifted and garage sale finds, I was able to do just that. Getting dressed is more fun with great budget friendly finds that you love. A striped scarf, fun plaid shirts, a refashioned vest and a great pair of boots for less than a dollar. Here are four cool weather friendly looks that any mom can achieve on a major budget.
Oh dear, I cannot believe that it is Wednesday already. I give myself a big old F for effort this week in the What I Wore department. I have all of one outfit to share with you…which means I have had a busy week. With our household going on week three of illnesses I feel like I am back in my baby raising days, and you guessed it – my yoga pants have been getting a workout, and not the way they are meant to. I usually take and edit photos throughout the week as I wear things, but this week there was not a stitch of time for any of it.
We have had a busy week with all of the Halloween festivities in full swing. I have found myself almost constantly in skinny jeans with boots and flowing tops now that the weather has gotten a little colder. For me, the combination is perfect for my day to day tasks and for hauling the kids to and fro. I’m loving the cozy scarves boots, and layers. It has become my go to quick option in the mornings, which is a huge step up from my old yoga pants and over sized sweatshirts a few months ago.
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!
