What I Wore Wednesday...on Thursday

I'm not the kind of person to jump in with both feet without first testing the waters a bit with my toes.  Once my toes are damp I like to go back to my towel and check the world wide web for what others are saying about the water and if there's a better deal out there on water.  Then I sit and watch the water for a while.  THEN I'll ease in. Or get distracted with something else shiny.'s pretty!

That's kinda what I did with this here post.  I came across the Pleated Poppy a while back and instantly fell in love.  My favorite posts were the "what I wear Wednesday" ones, because, let's face it, I'm nosy and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE clothes, shoes and accessories.

It's an obsession really.

I thought, Self! You jump right into that water. It's the pool-o-joy you've been waiting for! So the very next day I took a picture of what I wore.  Just about every day since then I have taken a picture of what I wore.  Today-Thursday, July 1st- a mere three weeks after I started documenting my clothing choices each day-I've decided it's time to post.

So here's what I wore last week.  (I bet you thought I was going to show you all three weeks worth of pictures. Ha! I've decided to keep those early shots for days/weeks in the future when I'm too lazy to take a picture of that day. We all know that will happen.  It's only a matter of time. So come this December, when you see me in flip flops and a tank top you'll know what I wore two weeks ago.)

Well there you have it. My week in apparel. It was a loverly week despite it's struggles day-to-day. I'm going to apologize right now for my lack of photography skillz and the random placement of my full-length ghetto mirror. Three weeks ago when I began documenting my clothes I was using our nice Rebel, but then The Music Man needed it for something and I never took it back upstairs with me. So these shots are all from my phone.  I kept moving the mirror (that fell off my wall) to find the best light to get the best, a good, let's be real and say that I was just trying to get a shot in which I didn't look like a) a 400lb giant, and b) my face wasn't in a bazillion shadows. 

Hopefully I can get these issues figured out for the future.

It's a work in progress.

I'm a work in progress.
