What I Wore

What I Wore is a now-defunct series that I used to do on the blog where I shared what I was wearing. I did this for 2 reasons: #1) because I work from home and sometimes need a little extra motivation to get out of PJs, and #2) clothes as an expression of self became interesting to me, and I used this series to document my evolving style and what I liked.




What I Wore: to the TxSC Blogger Conference

This past weekend was the 2013 Texas Style Council Conference. Speakers, staff, sponsors, volunteers and ~400 attendees gathered for 3 days of mingling, workshops and fun in downtown Austin. If you’ve been a blog follower for awhile, you may remember I attended this conference last year – my very first and very intimidating/overwhelming blog conference experience. I’m happy to say this year was a million times more fun and useful! Partly because I knew more what to expect and had been working on my shyness factor; partly because this year covered ALL SORTS of business/blog/DIY topics, not just fashion, and in a more interactive way (workshops instead of panels); and partly because this year was WAY less claustrophobic because the staff scored a great space. It might also have helped that it was bright and sunny and warm, not cold and rainy and March. What can I say, I’m a summer creature. 🙂

Anyway, today I’m doing a [photo-heavy] recap and What I Wore rolled into one. It’s pretty long, so catch the jump after this first photo.

What I Wore: Black & Green

This is what I’m wearing today. An easy summer outfit – cute tank or shirt, shorts, sandals or wedges, and a hat. It’s hard to tell in these pictures, but the front of the tank is lace, which I think adds a nice detail. Also, the more I wear this hat, the more I love it. I’m becoming a hat person – who knew? 🙂 Not much in the way of news since yesterday. Work as normal. Still printing up a storm in anticipation of next weekend’s craft party. Still trying to plan my outfits for the conference this weekend. […]

What I Wore: 7 x 7 Remix Challenge #2

7x7 Remix Challenge outfits

That’s right! I’m linking up with Natalia for another 7×7 Remix Challenge! You can see the first one here. If you’ve never seen one of these before, the idea is that you pick 7 pieces of clothing and can only use those items to make (at least) 7 different outfits. Accessories don’t count: jewelry, belts, scarves, and all that can be mixed, matched and piled on. For this one, shoes didn’t count as one of the 7 items either, which changed it up even more. I loved doing the first one, so jumped on board again when she announced this […]

What I Wore: Tribal to the Max

Small glimpse into the inner workings of my mind: I have been thinking of this dress as a tribal print, since the pattern has a sort of hand-drawn quality to it up close (see the detail shot farther down). So I named the post accordingly. Then I went to link to the dress below, and saw it was called ‘geometric’ print on the product listing. And there was this whole back and forth in my head as to whether that was just the store being PC or if I was wrong in filing the dress under the tribal category to […]

What I Wore: Modern Fairytale

A few weeks ago, Vanessa contacted me about doing a themed outfit post. Specifically, the theme was to be ‘My Favorite Fairy Tale.’ I thought this was a fun idea (and good timing since I’m planning on reading Grimms’ Fairy Tales this month), so I signed up. It was a no brainer to me which fairytale I was going to pick. Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite. It’s not true love until he gives you a library, ladies! 😉 But seriously, I’ve always loved the story. Having a leading lady who is smart and loves books was […]

What I Wore: Bleach Painted

This is what I wore yesterday. Well, at least for part of the day. I changed into jeans in the afternoon for a chiropractic appointment (because shorter skirts + adjustment table/traction table don’t mix well) and never got around to getting back into to the skirt. I blame a hectic day, because I really do love this skirt. It’s got pockets! And is super soft and drape-y, and billows when you spin. A+ all around. Also, I’ve been playing with bleach painting again. You many have seen this shirt on Instagram awhile back if you follow me on there. I’ve […]

What I Wore: Shabby Apple {Giveaway}

Here’s a color that will wake you up in the morning! This might be the brightest thing I own. In a good way. The fact that is also super soft, and a flattering wrap dress, just seals the deal. Love it. It’s been trotted out for a few date nights and various slightly-fancy shindigs. I wore it yesterday just because, somehow managing to snag pictures between rain showers. So if it looks more damp than usual in my backyard, that’s why. A point I want to discuss: why is it so hard to find a good, actual wrap dress these […]
