This time of the year seems dreary and long, especially if you live in a place like Wisconsin. I’m waiting on springtime, sunshine, and birds singing for sure. In the meantime, I figure, I might as well add a little color to our whiteout winter conditions with my wardrobe. To add a little cheer and color to my days, I have been adding some bright colorful pieces of clothing to my outfits in hopes of beating the winter blues. It has been working, so far, and the outfits are much more vibrant and fun to wear. I have been enjoying adding some bright colors to my otherwise dull winter wardrobe. The fact that I went much darker with my hair has, for some reason, made me fell like I can pull it off a little easier. Hot pink tops, bright green skinnies, and a fabulously colored red pea coat have really brightened up my last couple of weeks!
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!
I am feeling extra comfortable now that I have the option to layer clothes thanks to the cooler weather. It allows me to create moer interesting and texturally exciting outfits using color and different fabrics with scarves, sweaters, and layers. Not to mention I love being all covered up and cozy warm in soft, warm fabrics. I’m finding lots of great ways to layer summer tanks with sweaters and scarves for looks that I love.
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?
This week was all about comfort. Two sets of t-shirts and jeans dressed up with a little sparkle or lace and a Pinterest inspired outfit that I adored. I would never have thought it up myself but love Pinterest for learning new ways to wear things I already have. I also share 3 of my favorite hairstyle that are quick, easy, and look pretty nice for the little amount of effort they take.
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.
From comfy sweatshirts, hats and cowboy boots to heels blouses and earrings I am certainly getting used to taking a little extra time to put myself together before I head out the door. This weeks outfits couldn’t be on much different ends of the spectrum, but it’s all about what woks for you and your life, right?
