What I Wore Wednesday- June 4, 2014

Welcome to my Weekly WIWW post!  Every week, for several months now, I have been taking pictures of my outfits and joining the WIWW link party with The Pleated Poppy.  These posts are something that I really enjoy, because I have always had a passion for fashion.  I love putting together new outfits, and shopping my own closet to wear things in different ways.  So here is what I was wearing this past week!

This was a casual Friday outfit.  I bought this Gingham shirt at Old Navy a while back, but Gap has a very similar pink gingham shirt that I love right now too!  The sandals are from Urban Outfitters.  They no longer carry these exact sandals, but these Urban Outfitter sandals are almost exactly the same. 


We had a big farewell party for Our Swedish daughter on Memorial Day, and this is what I wore. 


Here is a closer look at the tank.  I love this shirt.  It is a very subtle blush, and the white flowers are so pretty.  I bought the nude sandals at Old Navy.


I didn’t get a good full picture of this outfit.  It was blurry, so this is all you get.  I wore this to a casual dinner with Our Swedish guests last week.  The zebra shoes were a Goodwill find. 


This was a day at work.  I borrowed this skirt from Miss 18 Year Old.  You can see how I styled this skirt in a very similar way last spring. 



This is what I wore to the airport the day we said goodbye to Our Swedish Daughter.  Such a sad day.  I will be posting more on that later.  I love this black cardigan from Loft.  And they have some really cute cardigans for summer too!  If you are like me, I have one with me at all times.  The polka dotted peep toed flats are from Urban Outfitters, last summer.  They are no longer available, but I always love their selection of shoes. 


LC and I ran a 5K last weekend.  I need some new workout clothes!  I hate to spend my money on stuff like that, but when I need them and don’t have them, I always wish I would have.  I did buy this dry weave tank at Target recently, and it is currently on clearance for $11.04.  I like it because it is not too form fitting. 


This was a girl’s evening at a friends house last weekend.  I swear, I have had these jeans for at least 10 years!  The peach T-shirt is from Victoria’s Secret


I am still working, but the student’s last day was last week, so things are slowing down, and it is much more casual. 


Here is a closer look at the necklace I wore.  It is from Premiere Designs. 


And another day at work.  The plaid shorts were a Goodwill find last summer.  You can see another way I styled them here


This is the back of the tank.  I am not very good at getting pictures of my behind!


I am in such love with these Salt Water Sandals I bought on Amazon!  I bought them on sale, but right now they are $36.95, still not bad at all!  I originally saw these on a blog I read called Goat and Lulu and fell in love with them, because I actually owned these exact sandals as a child!  I posted a picture of them on Google + after I got them, and apparently, other’s did not agree.  I got a whole slew of people totally having a ball making fun of these sandals!  It was literally a whole conversation of wisecracks and very mean girls just ripping me and my sandals a new one!  Needless to say those people are now blocked.  My motto is be nice or get the hell out leave!  I guess at 43 years old (gasp) I just don’t have time to deal with people who try to bring me down or make me feel badly about myself.  And I just don’t tolerate it.  So if you don’t like these sandals, please, no need to tell me.  Trust me, I have heard it.  But if you do like them as much as I do, I would love to hear it in the comments.  You know, just so I know I am not the losing it completely!


Thank you so much for stopping by my WIWW post today!  I am almost finished with work until August, so I have lots of projects to complete, and I will be sharing all of them!  If you would like to see all of my WIWW posts, you can click right here.  Have a good hump day!
