good wednesday morning!
i'm linking up with lindsey from
the pleated poppy, for what she likes to call
"what i wore wednesday."
the idea behind this is to get you out of your "sweat pant/pony tail" same-ol-same-ol and fancy it up a bit. such a great idea!
unfortunately, this will be my first, and probably last time that i participate in wiww, because in doing this little project i came to realize a few key items.
1. thankfully i am part of a carpool with my neighbor. unfortunately, that means i only have to truly leave the house and venture into public 3 times a week to get the kids. not to mention, if it's not pouring rain
or freezing cold i try and walk down to the school to get some exercise in
(who wants to sweat in a really nice looking outfit)
also, i don't do any grocery shopping anymore during the week. as part of getting our finances in order, hubby and i don't do any shopping without eachother. (we feel it keeps us on the same page about things)
all kidding aside, this is what i look like almost on a regular basis
(it's sad and pathetic, i am truly ashamed)
sweat pants: old navy
sweat shirt: old navy
tank top: old navy...which brings me to my number 2
2. i do a lot of shopping at old navy. i mean a lot.
(again, ashamed of myself)
shirt: old navy
tank: old navy
jeans: anchor blue
slippers: gift from my mother-in-law many years ago (love)
this necklace is my fave, i wear it pretty much ever day. it's a combination of an engagement ring charm i got after hubby proposed, a sparkley horseshoe for good luck, and a heart hubby got me the day before little bear went into surgery. love!
remember this from friday? i felt like i was rockin it!
which brings me to...
3. i don't have a floor length mirror in my house...anywhere!
seriously, what woman doesn't have a floor length mirror in her home? i immediately brought this to hubby's attention and he promised he would fix that issue for me.
done. and. done.
pink shirt: old navy
white tank: body c
jeans: something from macy's (but not old navy so i'm pumped!)
jewelry: cookie lee
saturday we didn't go anywhere, but i still wanted to feel cute.
this horrible picture brings me to my...
4. i have a horribly cheap camera. again, brought this to hubby's attention, but he wasn't as receptive about fixing the issue as he was with a simple mirror. he simply smiled and reminded me that we were still in what we like to call "financial lockdown" and that a new camera (at least the one i want) was way down on the list of "what we will be getting when we have all this junk paid off."
(sad face, but he's right)
sweat shirt: old navy (okay, it's starting to hurt to say)
white shirt...you guessed it.
jeans: gap (but you can't see them because i don't have a full length mirror!)
i looked super cute yesterday taking little bear to therapy, but didn't get a chance to snap a picture as we were in a hurry. (bummer)
joining in on this project was fun and hopefully i can pull myself together and do it again. hubby was pleasantly pleased with me looking more like the wife he married, rather than the overly exhausted, hungry, mess of a mommy he leaves when he goes to work in the mornings.
maybe i can actually figure out how to use my point and shoot better and my pictures won't look so
"wow shaunna, thanks for sharing,
