What I Wore Wednesday - Summer Skirts

Is anyone else freaking out that summer is finally here?  I'm kind of losing my head for several reasons - it leaves me rather unsettled when my kids run out the front door and I don't see them for hours (awesome...but unsettling), but I'm finding that my summer wardrobe is a bit on the "blah" side.

Shorts, t-shirt, flats.  Rinse and repeat.

That's kind of been the story for me lately.  Thank God for maxi skirts that have helped me mix it up a little!  Here's a few things I've been throwing together lately:

 Tank top - Old Navy, Skirt - Target, Shoes - Payless, Necklace - Lisa Leonard Designs, Belt - The Limited, Earrings - Erica Jane Creations

After I had chosen outfits for every single other member of my family to wear for our family photo shoot, I stared into my closet wondering what the heck I was going to wear.  I took my photographer's advice and tried to choose a subtle pattern paired with a bright color that would pop against the background.  The belt I wore was slightly too big and I had to use safety pins to keep my bra straps from poking out under my top, but we made it work!

T-shirt - Target, Necklace - Stitch Fix, the rest is the same as above

This is a variation on the photo shoot outfit, including my new favorite necklace from Stitch Fix and a photobomb from my youngest son!

Top - The Limited, Skirt - Target, Belt - The Limited, Flats - Payless

Try to see past my ghostly pale legs, ok? I really think I need to start a support group for gals like me who "embrace the pale."

Long sleeved T - The Limited, Maxi Skirt - Target, Necklace - Stitch Fix

This was a day that was supposed to be summer-like, but ended up being a bit on the cool side.  Maxi skirt to the rescue!!! 

I'm going to try hard to branch out past the short/t-shirt combo this summer and get some more fun outfits to share with you all on Wednesdays.  Wish me luck!


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