What I Wore Wednesday - Jod a La Mode


First, a word about me and fashion. 

I love fashion, love looking at clothing catalogs, online stores, fashion magazines, etc... and best of all, going SHOPPING! But I am not fashion forward. I want to be trendy, but it usually takes about 6 months for me to stop hating a new trend, and a year to actually fall in love with it, so by the time I'm wearing it it's not actually new and I pretty much look like everyone else as far as style goes. In fact, usually I'm clinging to it after it's come and gone because I just finally joined the band wagon and gosh darn it, I've got to wear the item at least a few times! 

And I'm fine with that! The point is I don't want to give the impression that I think I'm some hip mama with fashion tips to share. That being said, here goes something new... I'm linking up to What I Wore Wednesday by The Pleated Poppy, a blog I like to read even though I know zero about sewing and try to refrain from anything resembling craftiness. I just admire it in others it seems.

So the idea is to take a picture of what you wear every day with the goal of working on being more creative with the clothes you already have, and also not wearing your pajamas 5 days in a row, which believe me can be very tempting when you have 3 young children that you stay at home with every day and who don't notice if you even have a bra on, let alone if your shoes are matching your outfit.

Just sayin'.

I'm only on day 4 of blogging so I don't have a week's worth of pictures to share but don't think I wasn't tempted to start a blog just so I could join up with this fun concept... I started taking my pics first thing Monday morning!

 Monday: prayer group, errands.

 Tuesday: picnic at park, Dr. appointment.
 Tank: Old Navy (for the 4th of July)

So there we have it! I would like to acknowledge that yes, that is a window air conditioner you see in the background. Just one of the pitfalls blessings of living in a 50+ year old house. Also please don't judge me on the floral/pastel bedding combination going on back there... we are in the middle of adding on a master suite and believe me, that bedding will NOT make the transition when we do.


  1. Welcome! Cute yellow shoes, by the way.

  2. Very fun... so is this something you'll be doing every Wednesday now? And you wore your hair different every day too... who was saying they didn't do anything cute with their hair?? I'm calling you on the carpet miss "liar liar pants."

    Love it, love you!

  3. That necklace from Plato's Closet is great! Reminds me that I haven't been to the one that just opened by me and that I really need to go and find some cute accessories.

    Welcome to WIWW!!

  4. Thank you for the welcome fellow WIWW'ers!

    Kelly I'm going to try it for a while at least, see if it motivates me to lose some weight in the process!

  5. Isn't that the same quilt that has been on there for years?.... LOL

  6. Absolutely loving reading your blog Jodi! You make me smile :) And I have always thought you were very fashionable, so does that make me behind the times too? Probably!

  7. Cute outfits! I am fashion-challenged, but I'm trying to take advantage of our fresh start in Florida to update both my closet and my sense of style. Skirts and dresses are my new go-to items. "What I Wore Wednesday" is a great idea to get you to mix it up with your current wardrobe!
