WIWW aka What I Wore Wednesday.

I've been meaning to join in on this for a while, and apologize to those who participate weekly. I've been delayed. I'm still getting into the swing of things since my original blog imploded. I know it's not fair to gawk at all of your fabulousness and not ante up myself. Here goes...

But keep those expectations low...

If you aren't familiar with WIWW, it stands for "What I Wore Wednesday". It all started with Lindsay over at The Pleated Poppy. I'll quote her intro for the week...

"welcome to “what i wore wednesday“!

as a stay-at-home mom, getting in a fashion rut is so easy. actually, staying in my jammies is even easier. but… i feel so much better when i get dressed each day, when i like what i’m wearing, when i feel “cute”. and getting an extra head turn from my husband is pretty nice, too!

i’m a real mom, i need to wear realistic clothes. i’m down on the floor with the kids, chasing runaways, and getting sticky hands wiped on my thighs – i need clothes that work for my life. my clothes aren’t fancy. i don’t shop high end. but its so fun trying to make it work (i’ve got project runway playing in the background right now!)."

  1. Welcome to WIWW! You look fabulous! I love your church outfit, and you are rocking the jeans and tee combos. I have the same gingham Old Navy button up, so of course I like that! Just to continue with the gushing- I love your hair. Absolutely gorgeous. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! :)

  2. Love your own "Project Runway Show"! A great idea!
    Now I'll have to visit Poppy.

  3. Love all the jewelry! I think accessories make an outfit, don't you?

    As a mom of three, I can definitely appreciate making 'mommy' style work - you look great!:)

  4. I love your floral skirt so much! And I love the name of your blog--that's the term my Mom always used when one of us kids were complaining about not having a wonderful enough life... "Oh, you're just the red-headed step child, aren't you!" :P

  5. I can relate to what you are saying about getting dressed making you feel better. When I was in college, my fiends always commented on how I would never wear sweats to class. I got DRESSED EVERYDAY! Oh, and another thing, you are beautiful! I found your blog at The Pleated Poppy What I Wore Wednesday link up. I have found many inspirations on your blog. I am now following you and can’t wait to see what’s next. Feel free to stop by my blog when you get a moment @ http://theserenasaga.blogspot.com
