What I Wore Wednesday - "Bring Spring!" Edition

Here's a question for you.  What do I do for WIWW when I'm pretty sure I've shared just about every outfit I have?  I don't want to just start posting photos of stuff I've already showed you, but I most certainly do not want to stop sharing on WIWW.  It's fun series, is it not?

Decisions, decisions.

Help me, won't you?  Can you give me some input on what I should do moving forward in this series?

Thanks so much.

And now.....CLOTHES!

 Blouse - LOFT, Skinny Jeans - NY & CO, Boots - gifted, Necklace - Buried in my cupboard

This top was featured on my WIWW - Dressing Room Edition post.  My husband thought it was too loose on me, but I think that had less to do with the style of the top and more to do with the fact that he seems to think everything I wear needs to be form-fitting now.  I like that this top is spring-esque and loose enough to be comfortable, but still flattering.  I'm a big fan of a top that doesn't require me to wear SPANX to make it acceptable.

 Orange Sweater - Francesca's, Black tank - Maurices, Silver Jeans - Maurice's, Leopard flats - Target

This outfit was another one of those "I can't believe it is STILL winter" outfits where I had to wear a scarf for warmth, but insisted on wearing flats with bare feet.  I'm a dork.

 Brown sweater - Target, Orange top - The Limited, Teal Scarf - Target, Skinny jeans - NY &co, Boots - gift

So comfy!  And I know orange and teal might be a bit of a stretch to put together, but I'm so obsessed with that scarf that I try it with pretty much every top I own.

 All Maurice's for this outfit!  (except the shoes - Target)

There was one day where the temperature tried to creep up toward 40 degrees and I wore short sleeves in celebration.  I also realized that I have very little in my closet that is going to work for spring into summer.  Perhaps that's why I'm extra-excited to see what shows up in my Stitch Fix box on Friday!! 

And now for my most stylish outfit of the last couple weeks!  I rocked a pair of workout pants several layers of tank tops and long-sleeved t-shirts, and a bocce sweatshirt (yes, the famous one) to run the Madison Shamrock Shuffle with my good friend Julie.  It was about 20 degrees at race time, so I was more interested in staying warm than looking snazzy.  It might not be the cutest outfit I've worn recently, but it's the one I'm most proud of.  :)

Linking up once again over at The Pleated Poppy for some amazing fashion inspiration!


  1. And for the record, I am not sporting a baby bump in that last pic--my gloves, camera, keys, and money were in my pockets. Just wanted to clear that up and squash any rumors. That is all. Oh, wait, that's not all...your outfits are all super cute, Sarah! You've inspired me to get out of my pajamas and go try to find something fun to wear.

    1. Who said anything about a baby bump??!! I think you look adorable.

      By the way, Happy Birthday Julie!!!

    2. Why, thank you! (Sorry--seeing this a couple of days late.) No one mentioned the bump--out loud--but I felt the uncontrollable urge to nip that thought in the bud for anyone. ;-p It's a vanity thing. I'm working on it. Love ya!

  2. Love the first top. I'm wearing a spring top in defiance of the melting snow. It's supposed to be 42 here in central Illinois.
    As for your question - you could do WIWW posts on your new fave places to shop - or what you're wishing for and your new stitch fix will be good for a post - or you could stretch it out to two posts! Can't wait to see what you get!

    1. Oh I will most definitely be doing another Stitch Fix review! My second box should be coming either today or tomorrow and I am just chomping at the bit to get at it. :)

  3. Love your outfits. I'm so ready for spring too!


    1. It's been like the winter that never ends!!!


Talk to me, Goose.
