What I Wore Wednesday (8/29)

Do you ever notice that when you take the time to put an outfit together, rather than just throw whatever on you tend to feel better? I know this is certainly true for me- I always feel a little more productive and confident when I think I look decent. I've been in a rather blah mood as of late, between the feeling sick (Shaun and I both) and meltdowns and well, just life in general...but I've been trying to make more of an effort when I can. It truly does help put me in a better mood...most days! This week, I'm going to share a few outfits from this week. Now, I'm not a fashion blogger, and not nearly fashionable to ever be one, but I try to create nice outfits with what I have anyway.

Dress: Shabby Apple
Belt: I have no idea!
If you ever have an occasion where you need to buy a new, cute dress...Shabby Apple is the way to go! I think this is one of my favorite from there too...I love the fit, the color...everything! This was what I wore today running errands...not only was it super cute, it was also very comfortable! (I'm also wearing my Lilla Rose Flexi Clips in my hair, though you can't see them!)

Shirt and Necklace: Not sure where they're from...I think just some random brands.
Jeans: Aeropostale Skinny Jeans
'Belt': This is actually one of the Thirty-One Varsity Scarves, but I thought it made a wonderful, fun belt too!

Shirt: Another random brand, nothing fancy!
Jacket: Old Navy (This was actually my first Plato's Closet purchase after we moved here! I fell in love with it in the window display, though I'm still lacking inspiration on what to wear it with!)
Scarf: Shabby Apple (Seriously, the best scarf EVER!)
Jeans: Banana Republic Skinny Jeans (I think I have a skinny jean addiction!)
(And yes, that IS a new iPhone 4S...we had to switch cell providers because my phone only had signal in our house half the time-and we don't have a landline- so new phones for us! I'm loving the much better camera on this one! Yay!)

Shirt: American Eagle (I love this shirt so much I own it in pink as well!)
Leggings: Wal-Mart
Leg Warmers: Not sure the brand, but I found them at Plato's Closet! (And I LOVE them!)
This was a lazy, around the house day...really nothing photo worthy, but I REALLY love my leg warmers!

  1. love the blouse in your second picture but my fave is definitely the 3rd one. every piece look really great on you :)

  2. I thought I recognized that green dress as a Shabby Apple dress as soon as I saw it! Does that mean that I've spent too much time on their website?

  3. yes! I try to do that EVERY day, so I feel as great as possible. My mood is always so much better when I'm wearing a dress!

  5. These are all nice looks, I love the dress. I did get a nice bow belt from Shabby Apple! I try to look decent, if I feel frumpy, it can make me feel down!
