It’s working!  I think I’m actually getting *a little* style – – yesterday someone said “I’m just so excited to see your house – I know it’ll be great because you have a great sense of style and always look so good” – what?!? Are you talking to the right person?!?  Anyways, there are still MANY days I sport this look:

but I try to make the effort a few times a week.  Here’s some effort looks:

 Above – I think this was a good look – it’s what I wore to playgroup.  The boots are always popular (Target, $30) and the turquoise necklace brings some color to the brown.

 Above – this is what I wore out-to-lunch.  Funny that someone pointed out that Kate and I matched – I hadn’t even noticed! I found the sweater at a local resale shop for $2 and think the fuschia compliments it.  I ventured into Forever 21 for the first time and bought the necklace and earrings for $2 each.  A friend left the flower at my house and I last minute grabbed it and shoved it in my hair (hope that’s okay Renee!) – my 4 year old wanted a turn at the camera:

 Oh, and someone mentioned I could try a darker pair of flats – I only had a silver pair, so I bought a darker pair from Paige – love them:

NOW – – thanks so much for the opinions on last week’s dress – so fun to hear what you all think (I’m going to see if I can get a resale shop to buy it off me).   I want to do more of that – – so each week on What I Wore Wednesdays I am going to pull some things out of my closet and see if I should keep them or give them the boot.  Fun, right?!?  Here’s a start:

It seems like lace is all the rage lately.  So when I saw this lace-ish shirt at the local resale shop, I bought it ($5, I think).  I think it works under a jacket (again from Paige – she was selling a bunch of stuff and I grabbed some) like here:

 But I’m not sure on it’s own.  It has this elastic running through a weird spot – right at the waist – and I’m not sure what to do with it – do I floof up the top or pull it flat or what?  I feel like it kinda makes the top frumpyish.  Maybe I could take out the elastic?  Maybe it’s not worth salvaging? I loved it when I bought it, but now I’m not so sure…..thoughts???  Sometime it will warm up (it will, right?!) and so the jacket won’t be an option – can I wear it alone?

    You look adorable in all of them. I LOVe the lace top, I think it compliments your figure very well and is overall very cute-with or without the jacket. Good job!

    I really, really like the lace top, especially since you can change it up with so many different colors under it. I think the way you’ve got the elastic situated in the last picture looks good, but I agree, those kind of tops can throw me for a loop sometimes. Would it be easy to just remove the elastic so it’ll hang nicely? I say keep it either way!

    The darker flats are amazing! The lace shirt should be flounced up – that’s a very “in” style right now. It’s ok with the jacket, but by itself is so much better!!! And it WILL warm up – eventually. lol.

    I love your out-to-lunch outfit. And I think you might have to permanently borrow your friend’s hair clip because it looks super cute!

    As for the lace shirt, I think it looks cute as is. If you take out the elastic it might be too long, but I can see how it would bother you running right across the waist. But it looks cute :)

    Yes, Yes, Yes,…Love the lace top it looks great on you with the jacket and with out. I don’t think the elastic looks wierd it hits you just right, I know that place seems weird and probaly not that comfortable but it looks great. I do think you need to wear it with skinny jeans, and lose the socks

    My 2 cents is keep the shirt. It is so versatile you can wear it win many ways. I could see it with a cool cami undernearth…pair that with bermuda shorts and heels. Great, great looks!

    Glad you’re using the flower. Mark’s sister actually gave it to me – Kara hijacked it the day we came to your house.

    Loved the lace shirt – it’s even better without the jacket.

    I think you’re exceptionally brave to post your outfits for all to comment on. :o)

    Great outfits. Love all the flats, and the boots are super cute. The lace shirt is WAY CUTE. Love it without the jacket much more than with the jacket. It’s a definite keeper and not frumpy in the slightest. Very romantic and girly.

    saw your blog on the pleated poppy… and i like the lace top! i would wear it without the jacket. you can wear so many different color combos! myself, i would probably do a black top underneath and turquoise long necklace. or maybe pull it down (tighter on top) and wear a belt low on your hips over the elastic?

  11. says

    Lurve the brown outfit! The necklace just sets it off and the color looks awesome on you. I like the lunch outfit too and the new flats are SWEET! I would personally keep the lace top. I think it looks fine like you are wearing it. The suggestion of pulling it down and trying a wide belt would work too. The color combos are endless with it.
