What I Wore Wednesday {Vol.4}

Shall we take a peek at some of the outfits I wore this past week for another edition of What I Wore Wednesday, the fun linky party hosted by Lindsey over at The Pleated Poppy?
Um...yes, please.
However, I feel must warn you about a few things first:
*I have a rather broad definition of what constitutes an outfit (almost anything other than the t-shirt I slept in & jeans).
*I almost always wear neutrals, comfy jeans and either flips or flats.
*I can't seem to take a photo without either popping up one knee or putting one arm on my hip, or both in an effort to...well, I don't know, maybe create an interesting angle or distract the eye from certain, ahem, areas.
*I tend to use words like drape-y.
*Things that I really like I tend to wear, like, a lot LOT.
Anyhoo, here we go...
Grey knit drape-y jacket: Marshall's
Embroidered yellow tank: Forever 21
Grey cami-tank: Target
Jeans: Target
Necklace: Sam Moon
Closer look at the necklace and my bicep (please ignore the tricep, thank you)
I get to wear my tap shoes for my beginner's tap class every Thursday night. There's something so fun (and noisy) about wearing tap shoes!
Grey tuxedo top: DownEast Basics
Black cami-tank: Target
Grey knit jacket (again, see I didn't fib about re-wearing what I like): Marshall's
Green drape-y tank: Marshall's
Grey cami-tank: Target
Yellow necklace: Forever 21
Jeans: Target
and...
my Yellow Box zebra flips: Cavender's Boot City
After all of your kind encouragement last week (thanks ever so much), I decided to embrace the legging again. Other than the fact that I decided to do it without consulting the weather forecast before layering up and our fake fall temps soared into the upper 80s, everything was fine as long as I stayed in the AC as much as possible.
Black drape-y cardigan: Forever 21
Grey dress: Target
Burgundy cami-tank: Target
Capri leggings: Target (are you sensing a pattern?)
Silver necklace: Kohl's
Black & silver bracelets: Sam Moon
Zebra ballet flats: Target
As silly as this might sound, taking part in Lindsey's WIWW challenge these past four weeks has really made a difference in how I approach more (I can't say most since Tuesday I looked exactly the same, as in unshowered and scruffy, when I picked Annelise up from school as when I dropped her her off that morning, except I added lip gloss) of my days and it's helping me to be more intentional and purposeful knowing that I'll be taking a photo of myself several days a week. It's also a fun way to get a little fashion inspiration and motivation from ladies all over the country (and Canada!) to step out of a fashion rut, which we all get into from time to time. But I'm not ready to break-up with my jeans and flip-flops anytime soon either.
So tell me, what are you wearing these days?

  4. You're all kinds of cute! This is making me seriously rethink my wardrobe (which isn't even worthy enough to be called a wardrobe really) and the fact that I have practically given up on looking good. I hadn't realized it was this bad.

  11. I love that you do this. My husband might not though, because it makes me want to shop again! I need to make more of an effort. I don't leave the house enough some days I think.
