I’ve been perusing a handful of blogs lately (when I should be dusting, nonetheless) and I’ve noticed a fun little trend that has piqued my interest: What I Wore Wednesdays (or some variation of this idea).
What I Wore Wednesdays is to encourage the stay at home (or work from home) Moms/women folk out there to get out of their jammies or soft pants and put some effort into their outfit and accessories. Then they snap a picture and show the world via the big bad internet. Sounds stupid? No, my friends, not to me. I love to see how creative people get, what their outfits cost, if they have thrifted any of the items and so on. It’s inspiring to watch them dive into their closet and see what they come up with.
Fashion is not my forte (cue Flashback Fridays for some chilling reminders) and I’m a better copier than creator. And even though I do go into the office each day, the kind folks at my work couldn’t care less about fashion. This encourages me to be lazy and sloppy and sometimes un-showered (oh my!). So, I thought I’d give this What I Wore Wednesdays a shot. Except, do it on random Thursdays and call it something else because it’s my blog and I do what I want, when I want.
Also No Boys Allowed!! Well, ok, fine but I’m just warning you that you won’t care about any of it – so, proceed at your own risk.
I don’t own many clothes (and even less accessories) so I think this is going to be a challenge for me. And I’m hoping to take you along for the ride, so how about it?
Here is my first outfit (taken with the tripod, a gift from my kick butt BIL). Feel free to judge but be nice and remember: I have complete control of the comments and probably will take on pseudo names to write how stunningly fashionable this outfit is (as well as other random compliments) if and when no one else does.
- Sweater: Maurices, $26
- Pants: AE jeans, ~$20ish?
- Polka dot tank: Old Navy, $10
- White tank: Express, $~10
- Orange belt: H&M, $6
- Short booties: Famous footwear, by Blowfish, can’t remember how much they cost but probably ~$35 with coupon
- Jewelry: Wedding bling (!) and simple silver hoops (my mainstays)
Anyone out there tried the belted cardigan fad??
