What I Wore Wednesday {Vol.3}

Can you believe it's time for another installment of What I Wore Wednesday?
I'm sure you've been waiting anxiously, perched on the edge of your seat to see what I've been wearing lately.
(What? You mean you haven't been? That's perfectly all right, we can still be friends.)
Without further ado...
White top & tank: Old Navy
Jeans: Old Navy
Chunky necklace & bracelet: Kohl's
(Annelise wanted to participate in WIWW too)
Charcoal grey top: Kohl's
White tank: Old Navy
Pink cardigan: Target
Posies: The Pleated Poppy (shh...don't tell, but one is a posy pin and the other is a posy hair clip)
Weekender jeans: Old Navy
Yellow Box flip-flops: local shop
Why yes, those are Annelise's legs poking out behind me, it seems one or two of her Zhu-Zhus were making a break for freedom and she had to stop them right that very minute.
Okay, this next outfit is outside my normal fashion box, but I am trying to embrace the legging/dress/tunic look. Even though I must confess I have not worn leggings since 1993 and was rather relieved to let them fade away into the fashion sunset then.
But they are back.
And even though I'm 41, I think they look cute with dresses, long tunics, sweaters, etc.
But I might be wrong.
Feel free to stage an intervention.
Grey dress: Kohl's
Black cami-tank: Old Navy
Black drape-y cardigan: Forever 21
Black leggings: Old Navy
Chunky red necklace & bracelet: Kohl's
Red ballet flats: Payless
Olive green top: Downeast Basics
Grey cami-tank: Target
Beige flutter cardigan: Downeast Basics
Jeans: Target
Necklace: Sam Moon
Bronze buckle flats: Payless
Since fall in south Texas is a fickle tease, I only wore the cardigan for about 15 minutes before I feared heat exhaustion would set in.
In the spirit of full disclosure I must show you what I wore for 80% of Tuesday:
You're welcome.
Apparently I could not be bothered to tuck my t-shirt in completely, thinking a corner would suffice. And I'll also tell you that this downward camera angle is my favorite because it's so misleading and distorted. I'd feel much better about the whole legging dilemma if this angle were really true.
Also, you might want to know...
*I'm still a fan of greys and neutrals, comfortable clothes, splashes of color, flip-flops almost year round and distressed jeans.
*Leggings: friend or foe? (my jury is still out)
*I'm really jonesing for leopard print ballet flats and yellow ballet flats. I can't explain why.
*I can't wait to wear cute scarves without fear of heat stroke.

Be sure to visit The Pleated Poppy to see what other ladies/stay-at-home-mamas are wearing in this week's WIWW linky party.

  5. You look great in all of these ensembles!

    I'm so glad you said that you could only wear the cardigan for 15 minutes before suffering heat stroke because I was thinking how cute they all are, but wondering how you don't overheat. I would like to be able to layer more, but I'm always too hot.

  7. I like all the outfits. I want to try the leggings and tunic look too. I have yet to find flats that I like though, so I have a shoe dilemma (no extra money for flat boots unfortunately). I want to go shopping.
