What I Wore Wednesday

Inspired by my friend Lori, I decided to join What I wore Wednesdays in an attempt to start dressing better and to start utilizing my closet appropriately.

I have a ridiculous amount of clothing. Seriously, you could get lost in my closet. Yet, I always wear the same thing. I can't promise that I'll get through it or OR that I'll never wear the same outfit twice, but hopefully this will help me think outside of the box a bit more (ahem, which is hard to do at 6:30 in the morning).

Disclaimer: I'm taking the pictures with a crappy blackberry for now, so don't expect a work of art here.

What I wore last Thursday (or I'm that girl that doesn't own a full length mirror)

Top: Marshalls
Cardigan: Gift from Ann Taylor
Skirt: Old Navy

What I wore last Friday (or don't you love pictures that include an elementary school toilet)?


Dress: Ann Taylor Loft
Cardigan: Old Navy

What I wore on Saturday (or I didn't try, I was running errands AND guess who bought a mirror?)


Dress: Macys
Shoes: Target

What I wore Sunday
I'm not showing you. I was tubing and in a bathing suit. That is for my eyes only.

What I wore Monday
I was camping. I wore sweatpants with a side of mud.

What I wore Tuesday (or I'm a rebel and wore flip flops to work. At least they were red patent leather).



Dress: Anthropologie (and I thank my mom a million times for buying it for me. I'm obsessed)
Cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft
Shoes: Ann Taylor Loft

What I wore Wednesday (or I didn't have any IEP meetings today so I went a bit casual)


Dress: Ann Taylor Loft
Shoes: Target
Necklace: New York and Company
NOT SHOWN: Obligatory teacher gear a.k.a. a jean jacket
Every teacher can recreate (and has many, many times) this look-- colorful cotton dress, jean jacket and some variation of flat shoes. It's a life saver.

What I've noticed: I do own more than 2 pairs of shoes but I prefer flats when I'm at work. My feet don't even know what heels are anymore. It's tragic.

Love the outfit.

I love this idea! My kids came today for an hour, so I had to dress like a grownup! They come in for real on Monday. I've got my first day outfit picked out. Not sure past that.

Melissa said...

Cute! I have that same ON ruffly cardigan in several colors! I love it!

Like you, I have lots of clothes and wear the same things over and over :P

Ann said...

Jackie said...

Ha! I may have worn a cotton dress, Jacks, and a jean jacket today. And will wear some variation for the rest of the time it is 90+ out.

love the outfits! and have many of the pieces you're wearing! I especially love the green loft dress, definitely wear that a bit!!

Sonya said...

Cute dresses! I have that same ruffled cardigan in black. Our school is very casual so I wear flip flops all the time and I'm usually one of the most dressed up because I'm always in a dress (even on Fridays right now). I hardly wear a heel anymore and I laugh when student teachers come in them! They don't really work on the playground.

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

LOL, let me clarify! I love all the outfits! Especially the striped dress!

Abby said...

I loooove that Anthro dress!!!

Mommy Moxie said...

I love it..."I wore sweatpants with a side of mud." Your outfits are great though and the colorful dress with a jean jacket is a staple in every girl's wardrobe!

I am hosting a little fun thing for those of us that have closets full of clothes that we wear the same five outfits out of-30 different outfits in 30 days. I would love for you to jump on board!

I LOVE the anthropologie dress!

And.. yes, it's tragic that your feet don't remember heels. I tried wearing them twice this school year and both days I was in a hold AND had to kick them off to transport a child (screaming and kicking, natch) down the hallway.

Are you picking out your outfits the night before, yet? :)

I don't particularly like Anthropologie, but I love that dress.
