what i wore wednesday [edition 1.0]

I decided to join the What I Wore Wednesday madness over on Lindsey's blog this week.  I follow a few blogs that participate in this and they always talk about how difficult it is to wear new outfits from their closet and how difficult it is to take pictures of themselves. 

I didn't think it would be that hard.
But, Y'ALL!  It is tough.  So don't make too much fun of how ridiculous I look.

Also, I thought I did a decent job of switching up my outfits, but with the pressure on, it was hard to make sure I was wearing different things and not always resorting to black dress pants and a cardigan.  That's always my go-to combo.

So, here we go!

Thursday [casual day]:

Top:  H&M
White tank:  Target
Navy khakis:  Fossil
Shoes:  Danskos [sooo comfortable]

And, a close up of the ruffle :)  This shirt is so good for "fat days".  Y'all know what I'm talking about?  The days where you're bloated or feeling icky if you've missed a few workouts.  It's flowy but doesn't look too baggy and unfitted.  And the ruffles and tiny stripes just get me excited :)


White tank top, Cardigan and Leggings:  Target [white tank on clearance for $6.00]
Necklace:  Forever 21
Skirt:  Made by me
Black boots:  Boutique in San Diego for $17!


Shirt:  H&M
Black pants:  Target
Heels:  Ninewest
Necklace: Gift from my mom - she always picks great jewelry :)


Dress and Leggings:  Old Navy [$15!]
Boots:  Boutique in San Diego

Headband from my sweet friend, Heather.  It's from a local boutique and I love it. 
Earrings: from my mom?

Okay, whew, thank goodness that's over.

Hopefully I'll get a little better at this - and a little more creative over time.  I really do want to do better about using what I've got to make "new" outfits.  I've got some work to do but hopefully next week will be an improvement. 

What about you?  Any headbands or ruffle shirts that get you excited :)
