What I Wore Wednesday...1st Edition

I came across this awesome blog that does What I Wore Wednesday where you post pictures of the outfits you wore the past week. I so need this right now! I have gotten so bad at just staying in my jammies or where stained, baggy sweat pants and Marcus' t-shirts.

Knowing that I would be taking pictures of my outfits every day and posting them for the whole world to see gave me the motivation to start caring what I look like again. (except for Monday. Monday didn't happen. I didn't get dressed or shower until night.)


White button up shirt: Old Navy
Black tank top: Down East Outfitters
Pants: Target....I am in between sizes right now and I REFUSE
to spend a small fortune on pants that will hopefully only fit for a couple of more months.
Belt: I have no idea...I've had it forever
Shoes: Kohls
Necklace: I made the gray one. The other one says "I Can Do Hard Things".
It's from The R House Couture.

Isn't it so cute?! The tutorial is on Little Miss Momma. It was super easy and made it in an afternoon while I was at my parents' house.

My bracelets I have been wearing a lot lately.
The red one is from my little boy for my last birthday.
The green one says Donate Life.
I donated a kidney and that's what I got to replace it. :)


Shirt: Boutique at the mall
Jeggings: Forever 21...yes, I own jeggings.
They are the most comfortable things. Ever.
Boots: Kohls
Badge: Christian's School. I volunteered today and forgot I had it
on when I took the picture.
Headband: I don't know...Quilted Bear maybe?

But isn't it really cute?
And look!
No grays!!


Shirt: Boutique at the mall
Jeans: DKNY that I have had forever.
Shoes: Target
Hat: Quilted Bear

Looking at this picture made me realize that this shirt is so not cute.
It was really cute on the hanger.


Dress: Impel Clothing
Boots: another thing I have had forever and have no clue where they came from
same with the necklace. But if I had to guess, I would say necklace was Charlotte Russe.

I love the waist on this dress. It hides my muffin top very well.

*Remember Monday didn't happen this week*

Black Lace Shirt: Sweetest Thingz Boutique
Black T-shirt: Down East Basic
Pink Sweater: Impel Clothing
Belt: Impel Clothing
Jeans: Aeropostale Skinny Jeans
Boots: Birthday present a couple of years ago
Bracelet: Forever 21

Look at the detail on this sweater and belt. I love it!

I really enjoyed actually "getting dressed" this past week. I need to work on my pictures though. Half the time my bed isn't made. Then you can see my garbage pile from cleaning off my desk that I hadn't thrown away yet. And let's not even talk about how dirty that mirror is. I'm going to clean it right now!

Ok, I just HAVE to know what is Impel Clothing and where can I find it???? That grey dress is just BEYOND amazing...I must own one :)

Mai said...

The dress is superb, looks really flattering on you!
Isn't it funny how from other clothes/accessories you know exactly when and where you got them while others are in total blur?! :)

Natalia Lynn said...

I love your outfits. Very cute and practical, that is right up my alley! Found you from Momma-go-Round's party! Oh and I love the design of your blog, did you do it yourself?

Hmmmm ive never heard of Impel clothing. Are they like a local Boutique or a large chain? Regardless, I love alot of the pieces you posted from them. You looked great all week!
And can I just say you obviously have a big heart: donating a kidney, adopting and looking to do so again. God Bless you for it:) My sister is adopted!
Have a great day.

so cute! That dress would be perfect (I struggle with a muffin top!) And I always say this on other what I wore posts, but you all are SO good at layering! I just don't know how to do it right.

Very cute!
