WIWW: What I Wore Wednesday

Well, I hate to say "I don't really do link-ups" but I don't. But I am now.
I used to do E's Midweek Confessions, but I kind of fell off that wagon. 
And then I saw this What I Wore Wednesday on Ashley's blog and got a little excited.
If you follow me on Instagram (or unfollowed me because of too many selfie outfit posts), you know I like to post my outfits all the time from time to time.
I don't do it to brag about how great my outfit is (its not) or how skinny I am (I am not!), but I like to see other people's outfits for inspiration and to find new combinations I would never have though of that look great together (sorry, Ashley, this is almost exactly the same as my comment on your WIWW, but its true!) and I thought I will return the favor by posting my own creations.
(ok, you can stop laughing at me now.)

So, on with the show...
I'm going to back a little further then a week, and most of these I already posted on Instagram but here they are again, with a little detail.

Yes, a picture where people poop. At work. Sorry.
Sweater: J.Crew (but I had to hunt it down on ebay because it was sold out - I LOVE it!)
Skirt: H&M
Sweater tights: H&M
Boot Socks: H&M
Boots: Payless ($30 and I LOVE them!!!) 

Cardigan: American Eagle (old)
Chambray button-up with anchor print: Old Navy
Navy striped tank: H&M
Red Corduroy skinnies: Old Navy
Camel ballet flats: Payless

I had to put a lot of thought into last week's outfits as they would be all I had while traveling to Germany. I had to consider the weather (cold and snowy) and the logistics of packing and dragging a heavy suitcase around old cobblestone streets with clothes I may not even wear (a mistake I made when traveling to Italy when I was 19 - I brought a different pair of shoes for each outfit! That was a heavy bag to drag around Rome - never again!) I think I did good this time:

Coat: Old Navy 
Scarf: Old Navy
Jeans: Tommy Hilfiger
Boots: Sorel Caribou (best 10lbs I ever lugged across the Atlantic)
Bag: Orla Kiely (my girl crush)

Scarf: gift from my mom
Dress: Target (for $6!!!!!)
Sweater tights: H&M
Leg warmers: Kohls
Boots: Macy's (I forget the brand)

Sweater: Old Navy
Striped Tank: Gap Outlet
Red Corduroy skinnies: Old Navy
Boots: Sorel Caribou

Chambray shirt dress: J.Crew factory
Sweater tights: Target
Leg warmers: H&M
Boots: Macy's (and still can't remember the brand)

Thursday (bad photo in my hotel room)
Cardigan: J.Crew Factory
Striped Henley: Cynthia Rowley @ Marshall's
Jeans: Tommy Hilfiger
Ballet Flats: Payless
**Please disregard hair & glasses as my flat iron would not work in Germany and I was flying home so no contacts**

Friday I wore a gray cardigan from J.Crew, a coral and white striped with gray collar and sleeves, long sleeve T from Gap, a mint tank from Target, Levi jeans from Marshall's, gray Uggs. I didn't get a photo but we did go see Yo Gabba Gabba LIVE! and it was SO much fun!

Sweater: Gap
Striped tank: H&M
Mustard yellow skinny cords: Target ($7!!!)
Leg warmers: H&M
Boots: Payless 

Sunday I gave my phone a day of rest and my family my undivided attention so no photo. But I wore:
Gray striped sweater: Gap, Navy tank: Old navy, same jeans from Friday, Gray Uggs. After church, I changed into old college sweatpants and slippers. 
Scarf: Some weird store in Germany 
Sweater: Banana Republic
Tank: Old Navy
Pants: Gap
Mustard yellow corduroy Ballet flats: DSW

Sweater: J.Crew
Long sleeve shirt: Old Navy
Blue Corduroys: Old Navy (old)
Shoes: Target (they are considered "slippers" but I wear them as shoes.

pleated poppy

And share your latest and greatest. I already feel a Pinterest sesh coming on as I go through all these fun links.

Ps. Thanks, Ashley!

You are so adorable! I am in love with all of the boots/leggings combo.

BUT you are making me feel guilty for my lack of effort. And lack of good clothes. Time to go shopping!

I would do this, but people would then realize I am psychotically lazy and it would look a lot like "striped shirt: boden, Jeans: AG" over and over again. Oh, and it's likely the same two pairs of jeans over and over again. My only defense is that no one ever sees me, so I have no reason to dress cute. Or at least that's what I tell myself. Your stuff just might inspire me!

2. That $6 Target dress, was that recently? If so I'm going to be checking out all the Targets within driving distance this week to get myself one of those bad boys.
3. I've totally wanted to buy slippers and wear them as shoes. Now that someone with good tastes has done it, I can do it.
4. Your hair looks awesome, flat iron or not. Rock it girlfriend.
5. Are Payless shoes comfy? I never think to look in there but you've found some really cute shoes/boots.

thanks for the shout outs, too! :)
