What I Wore Wednesday - I *heart* Jackets Edition

 The response to the inaugural installment of WIWW was very encouraging, so I guess I'm going to have to actually change out of my green Albanese's Bocce sweatshirt and pajama pants and make an effort to get dressed so I can take a photo of my outfit because (*gasp*) people are actually clicking on my blog and looking at what I wear.....

.....and telling me that I don't look like a schlumpy frumpy hot mess.

Motivation if I've ever heard it!

Now, forgive me because I had no clue I was going to be joining in on WIWW when I first started taking these photos.  Initially, I was posting these to Instagram before I left the house just to make sure I wasn't heading to the grocery store looking like a color blind circus clown.  I'll try to improve my outfit-wearing-and-sharing photo taking abilities as we progress here.

Moving right along....

Jacket - New York & Company, Tank Top - Old Navy, Jeans - Hudson from Macy's, Tote Bag - Gussy Sews, Necklace - Lisa Leonard Designs

Please ignore all the chaos that is going on behind me in pretty much every single photo, K?

I've discovered that I really love jackets!  I discovered these two little gems and I enjoy trying to pair different things with them.   The brown jacket above is lightweight enough that I don't feel overwhelmed, but gives me a good amount of warmth for fall or early winter.  I love how it helps create a waist!  And my Gussy Sews tote is one of my favorite items in my whole closet.  It doubles as a gym bag, diaper bag, going to the doctor and gotta bring the iPad LeapPad Leapster Explorer snacks water bottles and anything else to keep the kids entertained so they don't burn the place down bag.

Jacket - Target, Grey long sleeved shirt - The Limited, Modern Straight Turquoise Cords - LOFT, Flats - Target, Necklace - Lisa Leonard Designs

This is an outfit I would NEVER have worn several months ago.  The idea of wearing turquoise cords alone would have sent me into a tailspin, but pairing them with leopard print flats would have been out of the question.  That being said, I love this outfit.  It's so comfy and I was pleasantly surprised to see how petite it made me look. 

Linking up at The Pleated Poppy again!  I am just in awe of the fashionistas over there!

  2. I bought those cords too as a step out of the box baby steps and I love them. I wear them a lot more than I thought. I love that they don't scream cords but are just different enough to be fun! You rock them well!
