T-shirt To Tank Top Transformation – What I Wore Wednesday

Remember last summer when I shared with you a tutorial on how to turn a t-shirt into a cute tank top?  Well, ever since I learned how to make them, I have done a number of projects using the same technique.  Here is this summers version of a sports t-shirt turned tank top that ups the anti a little bit!  Instead of using one t-shirt I used 2 different colored shirts and transformed them into an even cuter version of a sports tank top from last version.  This has been one of my favorite summer outfits and one of the few What I Wore Wednesday outfits I’ve shared with you this summer!  It’s quick easy, and a great way to create a shirt that you  will love and wear over and over again!

What I Wore Wednesday – Add A Little Color To A Winter Wardrobe

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!

What I Wore Wednesday – Black And Gray

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.

What I Wore Wednesday – Neutrals

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.
