what I wore Wednesday: Summer Style Challenge (week 2)

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

The last week has been a busy one. Nothing earth-shattering, but busy enough that I don't feel like I have it together. Thankfully, getting dressed is less of an issue when someone else is telling me what to wear. Thank you Alison.

I've deviated a few times (apparently, I don't own ANY khaki bottoms. Gotta get on that) but because I'm posting pics, I'm trying to still look half-decent (great way to keep me accountable). 

I also insisted that Mr. B help with the pics because every other blog I read has such great pics. Clearly, we're not there yet but we're working on it. I'm jealous of my blogger friends who just so happen to look like models all the time, live with professional photographers and/or have mad photo-editing skills. I fall in none of those categories so my wee blog won't be winning any photography awards anytime soon. This is likely not helped by the fact that most all of my pics are taken with an iphone. C'est la vie.

So here ya go....

Wednesday
Supposed to be paired with khaki shorts but I don't own khaki bottoms

Thursday
Still loving these print pants from Old Navy and I am finally feeling like I'm not wearing pjs when I wear them ;)

 Friday
Before you ask, the top is from Forever21 and yes, it's my new fav (seriously, how cute is it?!)

Saturday
I did it, I bought a fedora and I kinda love it! This was my cottage/girl's day outfit.
check out my furry photobomber (sneaky pup)

 Sunday
Off to an outdoor wedding shower. I bought this dress at Old Navy in the fall for $15, SCORE!

Monday
The maxi is back, okay it didn't actually go anywhere (I just haven't been posting pics). I'm still loving it.

Tuesday
Day off + personal training appt = workout clothes
Hey, at least I'm actually wearing workout clothes to workout in (as opposed to doing EVERYthing in). PROGRESS!

Proof, that even on my day off and after the gym, I did somewhat pull it together!

my first GIVEAWAY ends tonight at 8pm so enter HERE (while you still have time) for your chance to win some amazing mascara and nail polish ($35-40 value).

  1. Great outfits! I especially like the one with the jean vest as I just snipped he tags in mine and always looking for a way to wear it. The fedora looks great on you.

  15. I just love that you are so honest and real. I'm so struggling with selfies and photography too and am with you on everything you mentioned! BUT the hubby is installing new lighting in the bedroom today so hopefully I get better pics when I'm taking selfies. As usual, I love your outfits and your style {you know that top from Forever 21 is my fav}. The blue dress from ON looks spectacular on you - color/fit and if the truth be told, I tried that dress on and it looked horrible on me. Mini-me is as adorable has her mama!

  16. You are too cute! I'm in love with your fedora! You wear it well! I'm beginning to have doubts about this former frumpy mommy business.
