What I Wore Wednesday - Honesty Edition

There are just some days when I don't feel like getting dressed.  Heck, there are some days when I would happily be banned from eating chocolate for an entire month if it meant I could stay in bed for the entire day without having to worry about anyone interrupting my day of sloth.  Yes, I am fully aware that what I just wrote sounds insane.

I could never go a whole month without chocolate.  Who am I kidding?

The reality is that there are little people relying on me for their survival and, much to my dismay, the 18 month old isn't even old enough yet to dress himself or make his own breakfast.  *sigh*

Therefore, I am forced to emerge from my cozy bed and thanks to WIWW I can even muster up the motivation to put on real pants on most days.  Other days....not so much.  In the name of being fully honest, I will tell you that I rarely take any outfit photos on the days when my hair is a disaster, I have no makeup on my face, and I am rocking my pajama pants and yucky t shirt.  Nobody needs to see that.

When I post these outfits here on Wednesdays, it is usually a conglomeration of things I have worn over the past several weeks.  Hear me, friends.  I do not dress like this every single day.  I certainly give it the ole' college try, but it never seems to actually work!

Clear on that?  Okidoke.  On with the clothes!

One chambray shirt from Target, two ways:

Chambray shirt - Target, Leopard belt - The Limited, Hudson Jeans - Macy's

I was trying to figure out how to get in on the chambray shirt trend without breaking the bank and also without feeling like I was wearing a denim shirt.  This little lovely was my answer.  I think it was $22 and it has a very feminine fit without feeling like it is unflattering.  It is soft and I just love it.   I tucked it into my favorite jeans and added a leopard print belt to wear to a women's conference at church last weekend.

I wore it with my skinny jeans, boots, and a scarf to run errands one morning.  The outfit above is what I was wearing when I encountered the incident with the other mama at the library. As you can see, I was hardly wearing something that (in my opinion) should have prompted the response I received, so it hurt that much more when it happened.  It was definitely a learning experience though!

My pink scarf got some use recently also:

 Teal top - LOFT, Hudson Jeans - Macy's, Scarf - no idea

This was another one of those outfits I wore to try to summon spring to show up.  It snowed again Monday morning.  I posted a photo of it on Instagram and pouted in my coffee cup.

Striped top  - Old Navy, Black tank - Maurices, same jeans, same scarf
Layers, layers, layers.  I was so comfy and warm in this because I had three layers on!

 Wonder Woman t shirt - Hot Topic, Boyfriend tank - Old Navy, Silver Jeans - Plato's Closet

Here's a big fat dose of reality for ya.  This outfit was what I changed into immediately after coming home from church on a recent Sunday.  I had a headache, I was tired, and I had nowhere else to go that day.  I put on my comfy jeans and a shirt to try to give me some pep in my step.  Shoes?  Nah.  

Yellow ruffle tank - Old Navy, Purple Cardigan - LOFT, Teal necklace - The Limited, Straight jeans - LOFT, Leopard flats - Target

Now this colorful conglomeration was something I wore out and about for the morning before I realized I was cold and perhaps a bit too colorful.  I changed into something else later, but not before I had taken a photo to share with you.  What are your thoughts?  Did it actually work or was I correct in thinking it was a bit much?
