The Return of What I Wore Wednesday

These are my favorite posts to write.  What I wore Wednesday is exactly that. What I wore every day this week! I'm into not looking awful and because my job is so very demanding with little opportunity for down or "me" time I feel that taking a moment every morning to prepare for the day is vital to least it is for me! The days that I'm serving lunch in my pajamas never seem as productive or peaceful as those when I'm put together and ready to take care of business!

Its been so long since I've done this that I felt a little awkward and
 some of these are a little blurry so bear with me!
 I'm excited to challenge myself to share easy, versatile, practical looks for your day to day!

Top: rue21  Skirt: thirfted   Earrings: world market
This was just a causal hang out at home sort of day. We did school and housework etc etc.
A tank top, maxi skirt and some sort of interesting jewelry is still my warm weather go-to outfit.
Its a formula that works for me. 

Jacket/Boots: Target   Dress; Thifted   Earrings; Claires    Ring; Handmade 

I'm in love with these boots from Target. The soft gray color goes so well with everything and with the cooler seasons over I want to get as much use as possible out of them! 

Top; Target  Shorts: American Eagle  Shoes; Walmart  Wrap watch/Triangle Studs; Ebay
I almost didn't post this outfit because its so basic, but some days look like this! 
My shirt has flamingos on it so that makes it interesting right? 

Top: Forever 21  Jeans: Walmart  Earrings; Handmade
see the hair tutorial for this look HERE

Obviously by this time I remembered how to get a clear shot ;) 
Tuesday I hosted a balm making party using essential oils! We made sunscreen, lime vanilla lip balm (amazing) and a bug balm to keep the bugs away!
 I really like the way this top has flowy sleeves but with the shoulders exposed you don't lose all your shape! I do wish it were a little longer...I am simply not into the crop top trend. My torso is way too long and I'm probably way too old! Luckily Forever 21 has a camisole in every color for less than $3 so that will be my solution until everyone realizes how unflattering crop tops are. Sorry. They are.  
Anyway-I tried something new with my makeup too! Usually I just wear something moisture rich and sheer on my lips but I received this beautiful red shade for my birthday and I did feel quite glamorous. Maybe I'll try red lips more often! 

Hopefully you are inspired to try something new next week too!
 Even if its just wearing a fancy lip color remember to take a moment to breathe
before diving back into your daily grind.

Also if you host a fashion link party I'd love to join-leave a link in the comments!
