What I Wore Wednesday

I just want to say first off that doing these posts is a little intimidating...I really don't have much style and really struggle when putting outfits together and accessorizing.  

This has been a good way for me to do something that scares me and has forced me to actually get dressed every day and even wear jewelry!  It seems like such a task at the time, but I always feel much more put-together and confident when I do!  

Thanks for all your sweet comments - even when I know there has to be a lot of "constructive criticism" that a lot of you are holding back sharing :)  You are helping me be more open-minded and artistic with my style and maybe one day I will know what my style actually is!

Allie's doctor's appointment, errands:

Black shorts - Banana Republic Outlet...7 years ago :)
Shirt - Thrifted $2 (thanks mom!)
Silver hoop earrings - Diamond Shark online $2
Silver nail polish - Bon bons (my fave)
Ring - gift from my sister

Playing with Allie outside, working on some projects, and organizing my closet:

Racerback tank - Target $8 (thanks again mom!)
Undershirt - Shade
Jean shorts - cutoff gap jeans

Shopping with Trey and Allie (Read about that at the bottom of my post)
Iceberg for blueberry milkshakes later

Shirt - Guess
White tank - Shade
Capris - Target (yes I know they are very wrinkled!)
Feather earrings - Charlotte Russe $4
Shell Bracelet - Cozy Clothes

Church on Sunday:

Shirt - Thrifted $2 (it looks brand new too!)
Brown lace tank - Downeast Basics $5
Skirt - Banana Republic Outlet - $30 about 7 years ago...
Shoes - Target

Grocery shopping, stopping by Trey's office for lunch, and editing pictures:

Shirt - Thrifted and adjusted (taken in on bottom, sides, and neck)
Shorts - Lucky $30 w/ gift card (otherwise I wouldn't have paid that much)
Earrings - just made...may be selling a few pairs on etsy soon...

For those who care, this last Saturday I FINALLY convinced Trey to go shopping with me and get some clothes.  He hasn't bought clothing for himself in 4 1/2 years!  Not just because he hates shopping, but also because he is SO picky. No one even tries to buy him clothes.  I stopped trying after the first year of marriage because I got tired of having to return everything :(

So, we went to Old Navy.  He bought exactly one button-up collared tee and one pair of cargo shorts...its a start.  He thinks he is done for another couple of years. :)

I think you have great style! And you're so beautiful that everything looks wonderful on you. Keep it up, girl.

The bronze shoes from Target...make me incredibly sad. I had them but I wore them completely out. They are the shoes I miss the most. Great outfits.

Natalie Smith said...

I LOVE that shirt for Sunday! What a great find! Super cute...

Kate said...

You look great! You have the perfect mix of a casual, elegant, fun style!

Crystal Spencer said...

I have some criticism... You look WAY too hot for church. :) If you want to test your readers and their sincerity, wear something really ugly and see if anyone says anything. I think it would be a great experiment!

Crystal Spencer said...

Oh and I especially love the target tank.

Vanessa said...

All the outfits are sweet and cute, I like the "church outfit" since it's the closest thing to what I'd wear...to work. Which I do every day forever :D .. :(

Lots of love,

The church outfit is my favorite, its so pretty...and I looooove those shoes! Great thrifted finds. And don't worry about not feeling like you have a style. Mine changes everyday & Im ok with that but I do agree that I feel more confident when I take the time to put outfits together.

Brittany said...

Just wanted to say i LOVE that white shirt you wore to church!! It's so pretty. I might have to refashion one of my shirts to look like that. :)

Justine said...

Your outfits are cute. I am also doing WIWW for me. It really makes me think and sometimes I feel like I rather throw on a t-shirt and a pair of jeans and run out the door.

Maybe your husband will like Express Men? They always have some type of coupon online.

I love your outfits! Perhaps if I find any time I'll take part in "What I wore Wednesday".
If you want to go shopping with a guy you could take my boyfriend ;-) He's a huge shopper and has loads of clothes... We're moving into an apartment together this summer and we're not sure where to put ALL of our clothes ;-)

Ellen said...

The outfits all look great, but I especially like Sunday's. Good job. :)

Mommy Moxie said...

Love that lace tank top under your shirt on Sunday! I love the layered look-for a second, I thought it was a belt.

Great outfits!

Nina @ Momma Go Round said...

Um, you could come style me any day! That, and I wish I fit into my clothes from 7 years ago! You go girl!

Unknown said...

Aw, that's so funny about your hubby! Cute outfits! Thanks for sharing! I love your hair :)



Star @ A Load Of Craft said...

Ow-ow! You're Sunday pics are GORGEOUS! This is a fun post that you do :D

Molly Marisa said...

I'm thinking about doing this. I have work clothes though so it's far less fun I'm thinking. Are you linked up with a WIWW group? I always follow Pleated Poppy and check out what people where that link up with her...they are always so cute and casual!! :)
