Hello there WIWW friends, long time no see! I haven't posted a fashion-y type post in a while (more on that in a minute) but thought I'd jump back in with a few outfits from our recent road trip to Florida. Since the first few days were spent on the lovely sugary sands of Miramar Beach/Destin I spent most of my time in my swimsuit (a Land's End tankini).
However there is no photo evidence of that.
But I do have a few others to show y'all. First up is from our day at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure:grey maxi dress & white knit cardi: forever 21; black blingy flip flops: yellow box; turquoise keep calm & carry on necklace (because it was HOT & crowded): funky vintage lovely; sitting in a tree saddle bag (which can also be worn across the body, love that): vera bradley
I also wore a white tank underneath since this maxi dress was strapless for a bit of extra, um, coverage (and no surprises).
Out to see the last launch of the space shuttle Endeavor (which was unfortunately scrubbed--that's NASA talk for cancelled--for that day):
flowered tunic/dress: target; grey knit cardi: forever 21; bermuda shorts: downeast basics; same blingy flips & bag
Funny side note: I bought those two knit short sleeved cardis to wear as upper arm cover-up for sleeveless tops/dresses, but realized too late they didn't unbutton. Urg. My hubby had to cut them open so I could wear them like a jacket. Good thing they were dirt cheap!
I also wore another cute creation from April @ Funky Vintage Lovely, a mustard flower necklace and ring. It's hard to see in the above photo so here's another one:
On the road again, my traveling home clothes (actually worn two days in a row):grey boyfriend cardi & white tank: target; coral striped tank: forever 21, bermuda shorts: downeast basics; keep calm & carry on necklace: funky vintage lovely
and these turquoise & coral cutesies from Crystal B.
I mentioned earlier that I hadn't done a WIWW post in quite a while, mainly because I find myself wearing the same things most of the time. I get kind of bored with myself (can you imagine?) and my clothes. I also get into a rut of not getting myself together most days.
While I liked to pop around and visit a few of the blogs linked up each week, I allowed seeing so many cute ladies in their stylish, hip, cleverly accessorized outfits each week to stir up feelings of I Wish-I-Want-itis about not only clothes, shoes or accessories but actual physical appearance (hair, weight, whiteness of teeth, etc., all sorts of comparisons were happening in my brain which led to dissatisfaction with myself).
It's really hard for me to admit that. I feel kind of shallow and ridiculous now.
Do y'all know what I mean?
I know the intention of WIWW is to encourage one another to get dressed most days in something other than workout clothes or PJs and it's a fun way to meet other bloggers, so I may still throw together a WIWW post from time to time.
