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 #2

Its time for another edition of What I Wore Wednesday & I’m linking up with Lauren at The Pleated Poppy!

So here is my first shot at showing you my outfits from the week! I didn’t get every day but enough for you to get the picture! I learned quickly that it is best to take the picture early in the day for two reasons: 1) I often look ragged by 5pm and 2) I will learn that my choice is not exactly figure flattering before wearing it all day! I’ve tried to be very conscious to accessorize! Here we go!

Outfit #1:

This is the outfit that taught me the above lesson (I look pretty run down & my hair is flat as a pancake)! I thought I looked really cute but I don’t think the top does much for my figure.

Shirt: Old Navy

Tank: Target

Trouser Jeans: Old Navy

Necklace: Maurices

Outfit #2:

I felt much better in this outfit! Its simple but I still felt put together!

Shirt & Tank: Old Navy

Jeans: Maurices

Sandals: Lulu’s

Necklace: Brumby’s on Etsy

Outfit #3:

I was feeling pretty bad but still wanted to get out of the house for a bit! We did a Wal-Mart run to pick out Abby’s first tricycle!

Shirt & Tank: Old Navy

Shorts: Old Navy

Necklace: Wal-mart

Shoes: Lulu’s

Lessons for the week: Accessories can totally make an outfit & when my hair is this short, I need my flat iron!

What I Wore Wednesday #1

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you’ve been reading that I’m really trying to take some time to focus on myself and my style so that I can learn to be more comfortable in my own skin. Over the years, chronic illness has negatively impacted my view of myself and the phrase “my body hates me” was mentioned way too many times so I really want to change that. Letting Go was a stepping stone to embark on this new chapter. I turn 30 this year so why not kick off a new decade with a bang? I’ve changed up my hair style and am constantly on the search for style inspiration.

Several of the bloggers I follow take part in the What I Wore Wednesday link up with Lindsay over at The Pleated Poppy so I thought it would be a great boost if I knew that I would be sharing my outfits with you guys! Maybe it will spark some creativity along the way!

Just don’t expect creativity from today’s outfit! I thought I would be completely honest and show you the current norm for what I wear to work. I always say I work in a hole because I honestly don’t see that many people other than our maintenance guys during the day (my office isn’t in a high traffic area) and there are many days I end up in the floor doing phone installs but I know the change definitely needs to be for me to feel better about myself & my body. So here is today’s outfit in all its boring glory:

Shirt: Old Navy

Pants: Maurices

Shoes: Nike

no jewelry other than wedding set.

I can go no other way but up right?  Stay tuned as I embark on a new journey of style (and BTW – I’m completely open to any one of you calling Stacy & Clinton….hahaha)!
