What I Wore Saturday.

There's this blog The Pleated Poppy and Lindsey the author/owner has this every Wednesday post called "What I Wore Wednesday" It's cute and fun and I think the point is to inspire others (especially stay at home moms) to get out of the easily sunken into routine of comfy sweats, wife beater tanks, hoodies, yoga pants, and our pajamas... my personal fav! It's inspiration to get into our closets and put together some cute outfits, think out of the box, dress up, look cute, do our hair and makeup if we so desire. 
 It really does make a big difference in my mood/outlook/confidence... the days I shower and put on some makeup and do my hair vs. the days where it might have been a while since my last shower (gross, ya but with 3 toddlers it happens sometimes) and me in my favorite skanky sweat pants, the ones that John will burn eventually! (I just know it!)


A ton of people link up to Lindsey's Wednesday posts... not me, I never remember to take a pic of my outfit on that one Wednesday per month I happen to look put together. I will instead post my "What I Wore Saturday" outfit since I got a lot of compliments on it and was proud that I put it together all on my own and it wasn't black, grey or white. I'm getting more color in my life & closet :)


dress - Gabriel Brothers 12.99 (I LOVE a good steal deal)
belt - Khols $20.00 (I've learned how important a good go-to belt is!)
shoes - Forever21 Vegas $4.99 (i had blk heels on but changed last minute, I hate heels)
necklace - grandma Julia's bag of goodies (probably $2.00 at a thrift store)


So John and I got dressed up, this happens about 8x a year. It was for a wedding, a beautiful outside wedding, a really hot wedding, and we melted all the way through the 25 minute ceremony :) it was very pretty tho!



After being sick for what seemed like forever, it felt good to play dress up and have 
a date night with my husband!
