What I Wore Wednesday

Hello Friends!  I am a little late with today's post, as I was up half the night sewing, and the other half with my sweet boy, who's having some nasty teething pain.  Poor boy!  So, as much as I love these posts, I chose a few hours of sleep over my WIWW post first thing this morning.  But I did get a few moments today, so here's what I wore this week!

My favorite (and unexpected, for me) outfit this week!  I had been going back and forth about how I felt about the camo pants trend this fall, so I decided to try it out.  I saw these camo cargo pants at (where else??) Walmart, and thought I'd try them on.  I actually ended up LOVING them!  A great fit, good length (which is rare for my 5'3" frame), and I really think they are very versatile and neutral!  I decided to pair them with more feminine pieces so I didn't look like I was headed into combat.  A tiered ruffly shirt and sequinned ballet flats fit the bill.  I will definitely be wearing these pants a lot this fall!

Ivory Tiered Ruffle Top- Old Navy
"Three's a Charm" Necklace- Stella & Dot
Camo Skinny Cargo Pants- Walmart
Rose Gold Sequinned Ballet Flats- Charming Charlie's 

I'm thinking the roomy tunic and skinny jean uniform from last year is going to be this year's fall and winter uniform as well.  It's a fail-safe outfit that I reach for again and again.  So I've tried to fill my closet with lots of options in those two silhouettes, so I can mix and match skinnies and tunics, and have easy outfits.  Like this one.

Leopard Infinity Scarf- Etsy 
Chambray Pleated Tunic- Old Navy
Khaki Skinny Pants- Walmart
Lace Up Boots- Modcloth

So, this outfit was about a half-step above my pajamas.  Super comfy, very relaxed, but not yoga pants.  I had to hit the post office and grocery store with all three kids in tow, and I was looking for functionality, not fashion.  That being said, I do love my new t shirt from the Printed Palette!  They have an etsy shop with lots of super cute women's t shirts and even cuter kids t shirts.  They were having an instagram sale, and I scooped this one up on sale.  It's actually too big, but it's so soft and so comfy that I wore it anyway.  I'm thinking with a few washes it will be perfect, and even if it's not, I don't care!

Mint Chevron T Shirt- Printed Palette
Aztec Infinity Scarf- Charleston Straw Market (yes, I wear this multiple times a week, every week!)
Jordache Skinny Jeans- Walmart
Nude and Neon Sandals- Target

As usual, I will be linking up with The Pleated Poppy and Get Your Pretty On.  So head over to their blogs and check out other outfit pretties!
