What I Wore Wednesday

Happy Wednesday lovely people!  I hope you're having a great day and enjoying the last week of August!

Well, it happened, I received my first WIWW criticism last week.  When referring to my blog, someone said the addition of my outfit posts was "interesting."  Ugh.  I guess I knew it would happen at some point, but can't a girl have a little fun without someone raining on her parade?  

So...in order to thicken my skin, I decided to post two outfits AND a random hair picture.
To each, their own :-).

I wore this outfit to my nephew's 4th birthday party.  My second pair of colored jeans.  I am in love.  They breathe new life into an otherwise ordinary outfit.  And they make me wonder why it took so long to buy my first (and second) pair.

Purse: Target

I wore this outfit running errands and to the park.  I have worn this outfit at least once a week the entire summer.  I change the accessories, but it has been my go-to.  Nothing fancy.  And comfortable. And easy to play in.  Oh, and it doesn't show stains.  I could go on and on...

I included the following picture to inform all terrible french braiders (cough...me), that our time has arrived because messy french braids are IN.  My hair-stylist friend told me that you should never, ever wear a nice clean french braid unless your outfit is extremely trendy.  Like, out there trendy.  So I have embraced this new knowledge.  And I wanted to share it with you.  

Braid away, my friends.  Braid away.  


As always, I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy and Rolled Up Pretty :-).

I love your WIWW posts! I'm so glad you're responding to the "interesting" comment with MORE outfits! Keep them coming!

As a girl who has no clue what to wear, ever, I love your WIWW posts and feel like you're slowly educating me AND telling me that I can get these cute outfits at stores I shop at anyway. LOVE IT.

And thanks!
Joyfully,
Becca

I'll take "interesting" any day! I love your colored jeans - I wore my cherry red pants this week and they always make me happy. Keep up the good work! Visiting from WIWW.
