what I wore wednesday

I’m totally posting this late, and I was afraid that I was not going to be able to link up, and then I wasn’t going to even bother to do the post, and then I’d have all these pictures of me wearing cute clothes. (I actually thought about saving them and plugging them in on days when I sit in jammies all day and fib!) but, fortunately, the link up is still open and I’m posting! besides, I had to follow up last week’s cliff-hanger post about my haircut!



  • top: thrifted
  • jeans: gap via thrift store
  • jewelry: handmedown from my mother.
  • haircut: heck yeah!

this is a great outfit for showing off one’s new hair style! 012

it’s also great for going out to dinner with your family and just generally looking really good in your new hair style! ;)

thursday:   013

  • top: old navy via handmedown
  • capris: same old gap via thrift store via personal alteration
  • jewelry: no idea!065

this outfit works for taking your son to the junior high so he can stand next to you in the picture line and asb card buying line, and the other line, and that other line, all while acting very aloof… you can also attend meet the teacher night at your daughter’s school. and lest I forget, this outfit works great for painstakingly (and awkwardly) attempting to style ones new haircut for the first time…

friday:       009 - Copy

  • top: target via thrift store
  • embellished capris: gap via thrift store
  • jade necklace: family heirloom
  • brown mary janes: born (love these shoes. LOVE.)

I’m sure this outfit is good for something, I just can’t remember what. so, I’ve always had a love affair with these capris. unfortunately, that means they’re really old. there were times (after babies) that they didn’t fit me, which was depressing. I still really like them, but I’ve had them for at least 10 years and I didn’t purchase them new, and if you know anything at all about the way pants fit now vs. the way they used to fit you know that the cut of the whole butt/rise/waist/hip area is quite a bit different. I’m trying to decide if I still like them enough to keep them. after wearing them on friday, I think I had decided that it was time for them to go. but now I’m looking at the picture and I’m thinking it’s not so bad… opinions? advice? leave a comment.

saturday:   060

okay, clearly this is not a high fashion day, but my clothes were functional! oldest jeans and a ratty t-shirt I’ve had forever are PERFECT for transforming your youngest son’s room from brown to blue!

sunday:      021

this is what I wore to church.

  • top: thrifted
  • skirt: ross
  • necklace: can’t remember
  • shoes: payless

these are my super cheap shoes that I wore when I got married! I love this skirt, and I love even more that it fits me! there was awhile where I couldn’t wear it. please excuse the over-stuffed laundry basket, the random desk chair, and the dog head!

monday:    IMG_20120903_200326

another painting day… here, I’m sporting a freebie shirt from a mariners game giveaway and a pair of dave’s old boxers. you can’t argue with that kind of fashion! (do you like the subliminal messages I’m painting into my daughter’s wall? we did that in the other room, too!)

tuesday:    023

  • top: forever 21 via thrift store
  • jeans: handmedown
  • flip flops: kohls

so… I have always LOVEd this top. It’s seriously SO cute. but I’m not so much loving the way it looks on me here… it looks kinda… well… maternity. and that’s not really the look I’m going for, given that I’m not pregnant! and the last thing someone who isn’t pregnant wants is someone to think they look like they are! opinions? it might be time for this one to go.


  1. Lots of great looks! You have been busy! I love your subliminal messages. You will have to let us know how they worked.

  2. Great outfits! I do agree with you on the last look. It is so cute and it does also look maternity-ish. Do you sew or know someone who does? They could rework it for you. Cut some length (also where the width is) and hem it shorter. Use the scraps to make a super cute headband to go with it. In a word - "upcycle!"

    I participated in What I Wore Wednesday for the first time. Please stop by and say, "G'Day!"
