WIWW: The Return

The whole reason Lindsey started What I Wore Wednesday was to get out of her pj/work out clothes rut and in to something real. Back in my working days I was quite the faithful WIWW participant,  but staying at home, especially during the summer with no schedule, has turned me into the definition of who WIWW is for!  So, I am slowly making my way back into the habit of putting on real outfits every day. As comfy as my shorts and tees are, I really am so much more productive when I am dressed in real clothes, which is a good thing! Here are the few outfits I do have this week:

Sunday: Church


denim shirt: walmart
striped maxi: bealls
shoes: j. roberts {ruidosa, nm}
belt: express
necklace: forever 21


monday: errands & serving at teacher appreciation luncheon


dress: old navy
scarf & bracelets: forever 21
earrings: gift


I love my short hair, but the fact of the matter is that sometimes it gets boring. There's no abundance of pins out there of how to put a bun in your hair, the newest twist to try out or anything exciting like that because I just don't have enough hair to do it. So occasionally I get bored and try something new and end up with this look that I like to call "80's Aerobics Instructor." It actually photographed better than I think it looked in person and I'm not sure I'll be trying it out again! {unless you have any tips then please send them my way!}

Tuesday: errands & housework


top: francesca's
pants: jc penneys
shoes: target


here's the main observation I take away from this week:

it is too sunny on my front porch! gotta find somewhere new to take my pics :)

check out the pleated poppy for more wiww inspirations!

  1. I love my short hair too, but sometimes it is hard to feel that it's girly--the trick that works for me is to stick some bling in it: a bow, a flower, a sparkly hairpin...
    I like the bright scarf you wore with the striped dress!

  2. I've always loved all your outfits, so I am really glad to see you back!

    I love the polka dot top and seafoam pants - super super cute!

  3. CUTE looks! LOVE the mint theme (and your FAB front door).

  4. I like your 80's aerobic instructor hair! That first outfit is super adorable.

  5. You are so, so gorgeous! I absolutely loveeeeeee your hair!

  6. I think you are so cute, and I LOVE your short hair! And I guess the option is there with long hair to change it up, but I get just as bored with my long hair. I think yours is sassy and unique!!

  7. I really love your first outfit!! The belted shirt is perfect with your maxi!
