What I Wore Wednesday - week 2


I've learned some valuable information already through this new hobby of taking pictures of my outfits daily (or not quite daily as it turns out). Let me share (and to learn why I'm doing this read here)...

1. The life of a stay at home mom during the summertime does not lead to many opportunities to dress up cute without feeling seriously overdressed.
2. A skinny beveled edge mirror is not the best option for self portraits, especially when screwed to the wall opposite a large window.
3. Holding a camera straight with one hand is apparently quite difficult.
4. Smiling at your reflection in a mirror for a picture feels very silly.
5. A bunch of unsmiling pictures of yourself looks very silly.

 capris: Plato's Closet (consignment store)
 sandals: rummage sale

Trust me, a picture of me in my 5 yr old sweat capris with a tank top and ponytail would benefit NO ONE.

You may notice I've taken the skirt route a lot so far. It's the summer of the skirt! Well so says my friend Therese and I at least. They're comfy and breezy and cute. And my shorts don't fit this summer.

  4. Love the yellow top and both printed skirts! And I'm the opposite of you: I think my (very rare!) smiling pics look silly and goofy!

  5. You look very cute in all these outfits. I also went the skirt/sundress route this summer, so much cooler. I also run into the overdressed problem, but, I think you did a great job of looking cute and casual!

  6. That's a great yellow shirt.

  7. Love the black and yellow combo!!!!!!!

  9. You should definitely give sewing a try! There are TONS and TONS of tutorials out there that can give you a head start. If you want, I can link you to some :) It isn't as hard as it seems. Really. If you have a sewing machine near by or a friend who know show to sew, give it a chance! You'll create wonders.


  10. What brand are the jeans you wore for Thursday? They are so cute!

  11. they are "Twenty One" premium, don't know where they're originally from... Forever 21?

    Justine maybe I will give it a try one of these days! :)

  12. You rock the accessories, Jodi! I can NEVER figure out how to wear jewelry, much less belts. And I love that yellow top!

  13. I LOVE that top from Ross on Thursday! I too have gone the skirt route quite often this summer. Oh, and I love that bracelet from Mexico too.

  14. I always think you look cute but I never realized just HOW MANY cute outfits you have until I started reading your blog (probably cuz I only see you at church once a week). You are so stylish!

  15. I loved the yellow shirt and capri's. I think you are very stylish. It's fun to see what you put together each day.

  16. Look at you Mrs Clothes Horse! You look good in everything you put on!
