My Capsule Wardrobe, a Year Later

Last year, like almost every other female I knew between the ages of 20-60, I purged my closet and jumped on the capsule wardrobe bandwagon. There were good intentions published online about┬áregularly┬áfeaturing my wardrobe via What I Wore Sunday, but those promises lasted until the┬átemperature┬ádropped and I could no longer take pictures outside. You were…

{WIWS} What is That Burning Orb in the Sky?

After throwing myself into a couple What I Wore Sunday posts early in the fall, temperatures dipped below fifty, meaning I couldn’t go outside and take nice pictures without being too dang cold or bundled up. And since the interior of my house might be, to, um “keeping it real”, I ditched the fashion shots…

{WIWS} From Posting on Week 105 to Mrs. Worldwide!

It’s baaaaaack! And the novelty has not worn off! ┬áMiddle aged mom working it for the camera and linking up with the FLAPers on week one oh five! I’d like to blame my trashed house on poltergeist but, I’ll just have to ‘fess up to spending all my time on Halloween costumes last week. So…

{wiws} The Pencil Skirt is No. 2 In My Heart

It seems last week’s WIWS link up never materialized. I hope I didn’t break something. But the capsule wardrobe frenzy is off and running around here. Even Kendra’s on board, and she’s started a link up so, I guess I might be over there partying on the bandwagon. This week, I introduce y’all to my…

{WIWS} Dusting Off An Old Favorite

For the first time in months (a year??) I’m linking up with What I Wore Sunday over at Fine Linen and Purple. Bonnie jumped back into it a couple of weeks ago and I thought, “Well, if Bonnie’s doing it, I gotta get back into it.” (And for the record, I’d totally follow Bonnie off…

The Homeschool Mom Capsule Wardrobe

Have you created a capsule wardrobe? What’s in your fall capsule? Have you encapsulated your life into 37 easy pieces??? You will magically look thinner, happier and have more style if you minimize your wardrobe to astronaut standards!!! Or cosmonaut standards. Whatever. Check out this gal’s sweet orange jumpsuit. And look how well everything fits…

{WIWS} I’m Not Wearing A Dirndl

It’s another episode of What I Wore Sunday, combined with a lackluster summary of our weekend. I didn’t want to bore you on Friday with seven low lights from our week, so you’ll have to take what you can get here. Let the potporri begin! First, the high fashion you’ve come to expect. Dress: Goodwill…

{WIWS} Still Running In Circles

Does anyone care what I wore yesterday at this point? But, I forced my husband to take pictures so, for his sake, I’m getting this post up. I was prevented from doing so yesterday since, you know, church and practically everyone in my house relapsing to Cyclosporiasis! Here’s me freaking out: And now “the nice…

{WIWS} Too Much Sauciness

Taking a break from the ratty t-shirt, smelly sneaker combo to bring you another episode of What I Wore Sunday chock full of sauciness and splatterings of tomato. Shirt: Old Navy Tank: Old Navy Skirt: Target Stockpot: Gift, probably purchased at Ollie’s, which currently has a layer of blackened tomatoes firmly cemented to the bottom….

{WIWS} There Is No Silver Lining

I almost didn’t make it back to blogging. I was this close to having a mental breakdown and going all “yellow wallpaper” on everybody. On Friday, after four days at the beach, I got the phone call I was waiting for; lab results! But when our pediatrician nonchalantly┬áannounced that none of the samples were tested…

{WIWS} Returns And Escapes

She’s back, she’s back!!! And for the record, she would like it known that she did not miss me at all. Which is fine, fine. I’m glad she fully enjoyed camp with only a minor recurrence of symptoms and didn’t miss us at all. It’s not like I was here, covered with poop, wishing for…

{WIWS} Aiming High While Spirits Are Low

The only members of my family holding down their food following Saturday’s Vigil Mass. Skirt, shirt: Burlington Coat Factory Doing Mass in shifts this weekend due to a nasty stomach bug. First Byron fell victim, then Tony, Addie, Teddy, Edie and finally Fulton. I’m the last one still standing. Since Fulton has a specialist’s appointment…

{WIWS} My Husband Hates Haute Couture

When my husband met me, I was dying my hair every color of the rainbow and regularly wearing┬áover-sized┬ámen’s pants with XL black or tie-dyed t-shirts. You’d think that by now he’d understand my unique sense of style and adjust his expectations accordingly. You’d think he’d just be grateful I’m not still stuck in the 90’s…
