What I Wore Wednesday: Week 1

One of my goals has been to get back into the What I Wore Wednesday linkups because I just feel so much better when I do! I love my yoga pants and t-shirts as much as the text person (which of course I am sporting as I type this) but when I have to be at work or out and about I just feel more confident when I take a few extra minutes to put together an outfit versus just putting on clothes. Anyone else?

For the first week I did pretty good and snapped two pictures! Here is outfit #1:

Old Navy Work Outfit Tank Cardi and Bootcut Pants

This outfit was courtesy of my parents for Christmas! The entire outfit (minus the shoes) came from Old Navy. The pants are Rock Star bootcut pants and holy moly, they are the next best thing to yoga pants! They are so comfortable! They have a lot stretch so they feel similar to leggings but have the bootcut leg. I paired these oh-so-wonderful pants with a sequined jersey tank and a purple cardigan. My shoes are ballet flats from Kmart! I am having issues with dry eyes so I’ve been sporting the spectacles as well.

Outfit #2:

Old Navy Bootcut Pants Striped Sweater

This is another outfit completely from Old Navy (maybe I need to shake up my shopping). I am sporting the same pants as I mentioned above (I told you I loved them!) but paired them with a striped sweater. I tried adding the turquoise necklace (from Etsy) for a pop of color but I’m not sure I’m loving the combo but I’m not sure what other accessories to pair with it. I’ve tried scarves but my hot flashes don’t appreciate any added layers around my neck.

My goal for this upcoming week is to picture at least 3 outfits and start playing more with accessories! Have you been sporting some fun new clothes since the holidays?

What I Wore Wednesday: Dec 14, 2011

You all should be proud! I actually remembered to photograph my outfits this past week! Well, at least 3 of them! Most of the weekend was spent in bed so I didn’t figure you wanted to see me in my flannel pants.


I call this week’s edition pinterest inspired because two of the three outfits were directly inspired by cute outfits I found while browsing pinterest! This past week has been pretty horrible pain-wise but trying some new looks fashion-wise and make the effort to feel put together really helped me feel better about myself.


So here are my three outfits:

What I Wore Wednesday

Its time for another round of What I Wore Wednesday!  I actually caught 2 outfits on camera this week! I’m improving! I’ve realized that my camera-camera takes better pictures and I should stick to using that versus my phone but anywho, I’m going to share them anyways! I felt very put together most days so I definitely think taking the extra effort to create outfits, including accessories, has been really beneficial to my overall well-being!


Outfit #1:

WIWW Outfit #1

White button-up & vest: Maurices

Black Trouser Jeans: Old Navy

Pink Shoes: Ebay (believe it or not!)

The coloring of this shot isn’t the greatest but I really liked the outfit & layering! However I think my favorite part of the outfit is the pink shoes! I definitely need to add some accessories to this outfit!


Outfit #2:

WIWW Outfit 2

White Shirt: Maurices

Black Dress: Ross

Jeans: Maurices

Shoes: Shoe Show

I am definitely in love with this outfit! I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest! The dress in the photo was way out of my price range so when I saw this dress at Ross I snatched it up! I think I paid $12 for it! The only thing I think is missing from this outfit is a cute pair of earrings!

I promise to do a better job taking pictures this week!

The stomach bug hit our household this weekend and is still lingering so I’ve only got one outfit to show (didn’t think you would want to see the ones I wore that got covered in toddler puke) and why posting has happened before now.  On the upside however is that this outfit made me feel totally cute and put together!

What I Wore Wednesday #4

Well, I won’t actually show you want I’ve been wearing since I’ve spent all my time post-hospital gown in nightshirts and gowns but I will show you want I’ve been dreaming about wearing! You see our Disney vacation is now less than a month away! Yay! And since I have both a Pinterest and a Polyvore addiction, I’ve been having fun trying to put together cute but comfy outfits for vacation!

Here are some options I came up with:

cute & comfy option for Disney


another Disney vacation outfit


And then I got to thinking….It took me a good 2-3 weeks post-hysterectomy before I was able to be remotely comfortable in regular clothes (aka anything with a waistband) so I started having to rethink some things and came up with these:

Simple Sundress


Maxi Dress & Accessories


What do you think of my vacation ideas? Will I look like the cool mom at Disney?

Sadly, I’ve only got one outfit to link up this week. I’ve been slightly distracted! You’ve seen the top before here and I was really unsure if I liked the way it looked on but after receiving some positive feedback I decided to give it another whirl but this time paired it with more fitted jeans versus wide leg and I definitely like this look better though I’m not sure about the fading on the jeans:

what I wore wednesday

shirt: Old Navy

jeans: Maurices

sandals: Teva

Necklace: Wal-Mart

Hot red bracelet: Hospital 🙂
