What I Wore

My husband always says, "Write what you know."  For the most part, I follow this advice.  So, I am stepping a little out of my comfort zone with this post.

I am going to try out this little thing called "What I Wore Wednesday."  I love reading The Pleated Poppy and looking at her WIWW posts for inspiration.  I also like the idea behind her Wednesday posts--a challenge to get out of pjs and work out clothes and into something that makes me feel good.  Because we all know that when we feel good about how we look, we are more productive.

So, here goes...


Ha, ha!  I wish!  This is my sweet daughter (well, her mommy, Amber lets me borrow her sometimes to pretend), wearing Naartjie.  Have you ever shopped there?  We had a girls lunch last week and poked our heads in this adorable store.  Well, Amber may have done a little more than poke her head in.  When I texted her later to ask what she ended up getting (I had to leave early to get my boys off the bus), her reply was, "Too much!"  I can see how it would be easy to get carried away with all those sweet girl clothes.  Luckily for me, the store is 85% girl clothes and 15% boy clothes--as usual.

Here goes, for real...

shirt: Target, shorts: Forever 21, shoes: Target, necklace: Lisa Leonard Designs

My first pic isn't very clear, so here is the necklace again.  I wear this necklace almost every day.  There is a charm for each boy's name, a star, and a fresh water pearl.  Lisa Leonard also has a blog I enjoy reading sometimes.  Her Hello Monday post is so sweet this week.  If you sign up for her free newsletter, you will receive 15% off your first order.

AND, to top off an already fantastic weekend, my biggest boy got baptized on Sunday!!!  Our hearts are overflowing with joy.  So proud of him!

I'd say I did pretty well this week.  I definitely did better at actually putting a little thought into my outfits since I knew I would be snapping a pic.  

And another plus?  I made my bed EVERY day this week.  Had to--it shows in most of my pics.  If that's not a reason to put a little thought into how I look, I don't know what is.

I am linking up with The Pleated Poppy's What I Wore Wednesday this week.  You should check her out.  She does WIWW a lot better than me! :)
