What I Wore Wednesday #14 and Real Momma, Real Style

Look who’s tryin’ to get all fancy like with her What I Wore Wednesday pictures?  Yep, I am.  I’ve even tried to name the outfit.  OK, that’s less about me being clever and more about me having way too many sleepless nights.  The family and I are preparing to move from Pennsylvania to Missouri and I’m stressed, y’all, stressed, I say.  Hopefully, Missouri is a big ol’ spa and I’ll have a woo~sah moment once we arrive until then there’s What I Wore Wednesday to keep me sane…

Wednesday ~ Renaissance Librarian

What I Wore Wednesday
Tunic, Jeggings ~ Deb’s
Bracelet ~ Target
Sandals ~ Dollar General

I was having a particularly good hair day and was incredibly impressed with the power of the curling iron to tame my hair into pretty little tendrily swirly things….  And the dog?  He’s just a cute little something something I threw in there for fun.

Thursday ~ Soon to be Unemployed Librarian

What I Wore Thursday
Button Front Top ~ TJ Maxx
Jeans ~ Old Navy
Necklace ~ Target
Leather Flower Cuff ~ 3 Sisters
Leather Pumps ~ Clarks,

This was my last day of work at Keystone College, so I thought it was a good day to step out of my comfort zone and not only wear a button up shirt but a button up shirt with a tie belt.  I’ve always felt my “girls” were way too demanding for this type of top, but I was actually quite comfortable.  As we begin our new lives in Missouri, I’m sure I’ll become even more adventurous.

Friday ~ Imitation Inspiration is the Sincerest Form of Flattery Momma

What I Wore Friday
Cardi, Babydoll Top ~ Deb’s
Butterfly Necklace, Earrings ~ Target
Boyfriend Jeans, Wedges ~ Kmart
Bag ~ Global Chic by Iman,

Last week, while doing the WIWW tour, I came across Aubree’s blog, Yellow Blackbird:  A Creative Blog and was immediately intrigued by her Shop Your Closet challenge and decided to give it a try.  I drew my inspiration from Vera Bradley’s Yellow Bird pattern.  I like the colors because they’re ones that I normally wouldn’t wear (I’m more of an earth tones kinda gal).  And, honestly, I didn’t think I’d have anything in my closet to meet my needs but I did and I’m pretty happy with how the outfit came together.

The inspiration ~ Vera Bradley’s Yellow Bird

Saturday ~ Boho Chic Momma

What I Wore Saturday
Sweater, Wedges ~ Burlington Coat Factory
Necklace ~ Can’t Remember
T~Shirt, Bracelets, Ring ~ Target
Camisole ~ Kmart
Skirt ~ Dollar General

I hung out with the hubs all day Saturday.  Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that he intended to do car stuff ~ buy new tires, fix fuel pump, everything a girl doesn’t want to do when wearing a white peasant skirt and high heeled wedges.

Monday ~ Accomplished Momma

What I Wore Monday

T~Shirt ~ Mom’s Toolbox
Boyfriend Crops ~ Kmart

During Spring 2011, I along with hundreds of other women read the Bible in 90 Days with Amy at Mom’s Toolbox.  I have volunteered to be a mentor during this next session beginning on 11 July.  To say I’m excited would be putting it mildly.

I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday, Nina from Momma Go Round for Real Momma, Real Style and Aubree at Yellow Blackbird:  A Creative Blog for Shop Your Closet.  If you need some fashion inspiration, check them out…
