I've long been fascinated with What I Wore Wednesday over at The Pleated Poppy. I love the idea behind it...take pictures of your outfits everyday to hold yourself accountable to get outta those sweatpants! Even though I've been too chicken to post any pictures of myself and my outfits, I have always said that I will not be a "Sweatpants Mama." I suppose that is the lingo of 10 years past. Today it might be more accurate to say "Yoga Pants Mama." Anywho...
In general, if I don't take a shower and put something else on besides my jammies, I feel like a slob. If I feel like a slob, it totally changes my perspective of just about everything... So, no slobby Mama allowed!
This week I decided to be brave and take a few pictures. I am challenged by the fact that I'm still carrying some baby weight and don't like how some of my "normal" clothes fit on me, particularly pants. And yet, I'm determined not to purchase clothes one size up. I don't want to get comfortable (in my pants) and not try to lose the weight, but I'm finding it's harder to lose those last pounds with baby number five. Stuffed sausage with a side of muffin top, anyone?! Grin!
I wish I was more determined to not make and enjoy so many cookies. Grin!
Yes, I wear jeans to church all. the. time.
sweater: Target (a long time ago)
necklace: thrifted Chiccos
skinny jeans: Delia's
boots: Bon Ton (clearance for $20!)
cheesy pose: All me, baby!
While this outfit is not anything special, it is the perfect case in point...It was lunchtime and I still wasn't dressed. I was quickly headed down the "ditch-the-rest-of-homeschool-and-productivity-plus-there-is-no-sunshine-today" path. But I showered and dressed anyhow... The day ended well!
sweater: Target (several years ago)
I need a bigger mirror...
shirt dress: Target (two years ago?)
denim jacket: thrifted Arizona Jean Co.
necklace: Dishfunctional Designs
Please tell me I'm brave and not a total dork! Or at least that you wouldn't mind being seen in public with me in these outfits. Grin!
