What I Wore Wednesday

My cousin Lisa is participating in a What I Wore Sunday blog link-up and I thought it sounded really fun. But I have no idea what a blog link-up is. And my Sunday outfits are rarely more than pajamas, so I decided to do it my way and do it on Wednesday! :)

pardon the poor picture quality - I have to take my own pic using the closet door mirror!

Shirt - Target $25
Pants - Target $28
Belt - Coach (old)
Shoes - Coach (old)

I've been contemplating green pants for forever and I finally bit the bullet and bought some. I honestly would have preferred a more kelly green color, but this teal color is omni-present out there right now. The first pair I contemplated was from Talbots, but I couldn't fathom spending $80 on trendy pants that I wasn't sure I'd love. I found these at Target the other day and I'm pretty pleased with them. And you can't beat the price. I had to size up so they'd fit my thighs correctly and now the waist is super big (story of my life!). But I think I like them enough to pay to get the waist tailored. Also, these are ankle length pants and hit me exactly where I want them to, but I can't imagine that they'd be long enough for anybody much taller than me - I'm only 5'-4".

I bought the top to pair with a striped skirt and haven't been able to wear them together yet. But I really like it; it's silky and flattering and polka dots are fun! You can't see it very well, but it has a really cute neck tie up by one shoulder and pearl buttons on the cuffs. It is a little boxy though, so I belted it with one of my favorite belts.

I actually dressed up for the "office" today. I had to run some errands, go to the Design Center, and meet a guy about John's car. Plus I have a Junior League meeting tonight, so I wanted to look nice. Honestly, I don't always dress this nice for the office - on Monday I didn't even change out of my pajamas!

UPDATED: Lisa encouraged me to link-up with another blogger who does a "What I Wore Wednesday", so I did! There are almost 300 people who have linked up with The Pleated Poppy and now I'm there, too! The button to get to her blog is over on the right side. You should check out her and all the other bloggers Wednesday outfits!

  1. You look adorable! I love love love your shoes! And I just got green pants too! I really like them, although when I wear them with my tall brown boots I feel a little like robin hood ;)
