{what i wore wednesday ~ 9}

back for another week of wiww and linking up with the pleated poppy! click over to see lots of other beautiful women gettin snazzy!

wednesday 10/5/11

top - maurice's
jeans - gift from my neighbor
earrings - gift from my dad
bracelet - don't remember??

i love this shirt! i wear it a lot during the fall and winter months. it layers well with a fun top underneath and of course the ruffles are awesome :) 

thursday 10/6/11

dress - rue21 about two years ago
scarf - steinmart
boots - cavender's
bracelet - don't remember! i've had it forever!

the first time i wore this someone said i looked like taylor swift. which made me promptly want to go home and change. but i got over it because it is really comfy and i really love my boots!

friday 10/7/11

pistols firin baby!
top - fan store in tulsa, ok
jeans - gift from my neighbor
boots - cavender's (even though you can't see them)
smile - all for you :)

so this is definitely  not a normal work outfit but it is football season and i gotta support my pokes! we are currently 5-0 and considered one of the stronger teams in what is left of the big 12. i can't wait for the bcs rankings to come out this weekend - it is predicted we will be #4!!

monday 10-10-11
top - k-sera (local boutique)
vest - maurice's
leggings - target
scarf - steinmart
boots - dillards

this is probably the most daring, creative, "out there" outfit i have come up with yet. i wasn't sure how i would feel in leggings and a tight-ish top but i have to confess... I LOVED IT! it was so comfy (felt like pajamas all day) and i felt cute and fall-appropriate! it has definitely been my favorite outfit this go round!

tuesday 10-11-11

shirt - old navy
camisole - maurice's
jeans - thrifted from the neighbor
boots - cavenders
scarf - salt & pepper boutique
earrings - oh so sweet petite

i'm loving this scarf - it is so soft! i also think maybe i need to add some yellow jewelry? i was going for a tone-on-tone monochromatic scheme with this outfit. different shades of salmon, peach and peony in the scarf, shirt and earrings. thoughts?

  11. I was going to say the same thing as Alina but I AM about to pop so maybe I don't need the ruffle top as much as I thought... ;-) SUPER cute!!!
