Ok…if you were a what I wore Wednesday fan, I have finally got something for you. I literally am going to wear my heart on my sleeve and also tell you that… there is something about Wisconsin winters makes a lady not want to take pictures of herself on a daily basis. I miss my sun kissed skin, and healthy fit self from summer work and play. The most likely reason why you haven’t seen these posts in a while! But, I guess I need to be honest with myself and with you that we all feel that way from time to time. Here are 3 fun outfits for ya and a simple DIY that turns a plain sweatshirt into an adorable addition to your wardrobe in minutes, just by adding some hearts to your sleeves!
The week of Thanksgiving was filled with lots of great food, family, and traditions. We had two straight days of all of those things with both sides of the family and I enjoyed every second of it. I also found myself dressed in comfortable and yes, stretchy, fabrics to accommodate the extra healthy portions of comfort food that I ate last week! The color pallet of black and gray made a lot of appearances last week, probably in hopes of disguising the two day long binge that occurred. Lets just say, that it worked out just fine, because I was perfectly happy, comfortable, and did not go hungry for one second last week.
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.
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!
Can I just say – WOW! What a difference three months can make! I have been doing these little What I wore posts that long, and I can hardly believe the transformation. The interesting part for me…is that I have had all of this stuff in my closet for years. Things that I love, but I never wore , and for no apparent reason. Three months later I am starting to enjoy the thought of getting dressed in the morning instead of taking the lazy way out, and it really doesn’t take any extra time.
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.
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.
Well, it is back to school time, and that means that our mornings are rushed – there is never enough time before we have to head out the door. My style is always the first thing to go – and packing lunches, feeding horses, and getting the kids ready is the priority. I’m going to try to keep up with the What I Wore Wednesday posts even though it has gotten a little harder.
This week was packed full of making memories with the kids before school started back up. I took a bit of a hiatus from blogging to spend the last week swooning over my babies. I only have two outfits this week but they are both great looks on a budget. Two entire outfits put together for under $16.00 each – who says a mom on a budget can’t look decent?
I am loving the perfect summer weather right now and taking advantage of my summer wardrobe before the cool fall air sweeps in. This week I was able to come up with three great outfits all under $30.00! I’m most excited to share with you a formal outfit that I wore to a wedding that ran me less than $23 bucks and some easy peasy summer hairstyle too.
