I started reading a blog awhile back called The Pleated Poppy. As a homeschooling mom of three, Lindsey wanted to have the motivation to get out of what my friend Patty calls "the mom uniform". So every Wednesday she posts what she wore to keep herself accountable and asks others to jump on board with her. I have worked up the nerve for about a month to even take my photo, because I kind of feel like a doofus posing for the camera.
(Even though I love looking at other people's posts as inspiration!)
Then last week she changed the challenge to not only get dressed like you're actually leaving the house, but to take it a step further and mix up prints for something new.
Since everything I own is gray, black, green or gray, this was a challenge.
So here it is, folks. I am finally joining the party!
cardigan: old navy
flower pin: lovely little whimsy (hint, hint)
dress: target (75% off rack, thankyaverymuch)
And puhlease, notice that carpet on my stairs. Inspired by another blog I found this week that I can't stop looking at, I am ripping that business up as soon as possible.
