What I Wore

I remember hearing Jenna Lyons in an interview saying she lets her little boy pick out her shoes every morning and she does her outfits around them. I thought this to be an adorable idea and decided to give it a go with Ellie and KJ. The last outfit was all me, we were out of town sans kiddos shooting a wedding but I thought I would share anyway.

Day 1


Out running errands. Top, pants, cardigan all J.Crew. Shoes Payless, belt I have had it so long it may be considered vintage.


Day 2


Working in the garden and I am gross. Top to bottom J.Crew.


Day 3


Running errands with the little man. Shoes converse, tank J. Crew, romper American Eagle (yes, I know I am too old to shop in there this is my only piece mind you).

Day 4


Rehearsal dinner. Dress J. Crew and shoes Nine West.


Day 5


The wedding party ran a 5k first thing in the morning. I took pictures. Top to bottom J. Crew. Belt vintage.

Before I started I thought this could make a fun weekly post, but then I soon realized by the second week all my outfits start looking the same and getting pictures everyday is a pain. Also this is a lot of me on here and well that's just not that interesting. If you all really do care about what I wore then maybe I can an outfit a week or something. I will let you all decide.

You are too cute.. cute and super stylish (i wish i looked that cute for running errands).. and I love this idea.. .letting your kids pick out your shoes. I think I might try it today (although I'm afraid they might pick really high heels for going to target). And yes, please do more of these posts. And now I feel like running to Amer Eagle to see if I could wear a romper. Ok, I'm gonna link to this post.. cause I like it so much!

I'm a long-time reader, but I don't often comment (shame on me!). This post was adorable. I loved all the outfits, and I'd love to see you do a little feature like this every week. (And, a wedding party that ran a 5k? When do we get to see pictures??)

Stacy of KSW said...

Ok, let me start by saying this is my first time on your site and that I have way too much wine tonight. My husband is back in town and we're celebrating a long separation. I found your site via Sweetie Pie (I love me some Jackie) any way, I am so enamored with you through just your photos. I haven't even read one word yet and I can already tell you I'm hooked. I love ya! I'll stop by tomorrow when I am more myself and leave a few more comments.

I love this idea! At least one picture each week please! Your kids must be having fun with this idea too. I let my husband decide what I should wear sometimes and he really surprises me! It's nice to be able to share blame if I look ridiculous too! :)

You are so adorable Paula! (The pics of you and the kids belong in chic magazines!). And you bring so much personality, warmth and creativity to the blog world.

I am also sooo glad so see that what seemed like a low time for you (in late April) has passed.

A warm hug, Mon
