What I Wore Wednesday

It's back!!  For today at least!  I have been wanting to get back into doing my weekly What i Wore Wednesday posts, but life just gets in the way, I forget (or just don't want) to take daily pictures, etc.  But, this past week I have been trying to quickly just snap a photo so I can start these posts up again, which I really enjoy, and a lot of y'all have commented that you like too (So sweet, thank you!)!!

So, the whole reason behind doing What I Wore posts is to keep myself accountable, and get myself up and ready and dressed each day.  A while back, when Ben was a baby, I was in an awful rut of jammies and yoga pants everyday (TOTALLY normal with a baby as a mother of three, though, right?!).  And I just got sick and tired of it.  I had a closet FULL of beautiful clothes, and I kept going for the same ratty pjs and long sleeve t's, and decided that enough was enough.  So I started planning my outfits, getting up and getting dressed, and keeping myself accountable by posting the pictures during my weekly WIWW posts.  It made a HUGE difference in the way I felt about myself, my productivity levels (I get so much more done when I'm not lounging in yoga pants!), and made me get creative with what I have in my closet.

So, I have three outfits to share today, and though they're not terribly interesting, I'm getting back into the saddle!  Hopefully I can keep it up and continue this as a weekly post again. :)

Except for about a week before Thanksgiving, we have had a very mild fall.  Which is fine with me, as long as I can layer up, wear a sweater and be fine (these 75 degree December days, though, I do not care for).  I love wearing dresses or tunics with leggings and a sweater and calling it a day.  This was a comfortable outfit that I wore to help in Brantley's Kindergarten class.  I threw on my chunky gray cowl too when I was outside, and was very warm!

Black Medallion Henley Dress- Old Navy
Black Fleece Leggings- Groop Dealz
Black Over the Knee Riding Boots- Charlotte Russe

You're probably seen this outfit all over Pinterest, which is where I found it too.  I mentioned my obsession with the blanket scarf way back in this post, and I have worn it a few times a week since then.  I love it's versaility, the ability to dress it up or down, and seriously, it's so warm.  I loved wearing it the other day with a classic raglan sweater and some brown booties for an elevated casual look.

Navy and White Raglan Sweater- Old Navy
Destroyed Skinny Jeans- Old Navy
Brown Ankle Booties- Target

This overcast and chilly morning, all I wanted to do was wear my slippers through the carpool line, but alas, I had errands to run afterwards.  So, I pulled on the next best thing, my trusty Uggs.  Honestly, I was never a fan of the Ugg trend until I got some, and then completely understood all the hype.  They are so soft and cozy, and comfortable and presentable when all I want to do is stay in pjs!  Add a gray sweater with a little embellishment (gray, matte sequins) and a cozy neutral toned cowl, and I was good to go.

Neutral Toned Cowl Infinity Scarf- Urban Outfitters
Gray Embellished Sweater- Old Navy
Destroyed Skinny Jeans- Old Navy (I'm clearly a big Old Navy fan)
Boots- Uggs

SO, that's it for this week!  Like I said, I'm going to try to get back into making this a weekly post, though I'm not making any promises quite yet since this is such a busy time of year!  I will be linking up to the WIWW linkup at The Pleated Poppy.  Check it out for more outfit ideas and inspiration!
