What I Wore Wednesday - July 2, 2014




 Since I have gone back to work full-time in an office I am much more concerned about what I am wearing each day.  I have always been a fan of The Pleated Poppy's What I Wore Wednesday but have never participated.  Now I am participating for my first time and I am super excited!

So here is my situation - I have not worked in almost ten years and my wardrobe is very limited when it comes to office wear.  I have also recently lost several pounds thanks to Trim Healthy Mama and I am still losing so what clothes I do own don't fit for the most part!  Add to that the fact that I am on a very limited budget when it comes to clothing and you can see the frustration I am running into every morning when I get dressed.
 
So here's what I have worn this week:


This was Saturday when we went to the museum and of course I forgot to take a full body shot.  
Shirt - BB Dakota Illeana Tunic Borrowed from Letote
Black Capris - Mossimo
Necklace - Meijer
Bracelet - Borrowed from Letote



This is what I wore to church on Sunday.
Tunic - White House Black Market
Leggings - Just My Size from Wal-Mart
Sandals - Guess
Bracelet - Borrowed from Letote


This was my Monday morning work outfit.  
Top - Collective Concepts borrowed from Letote
Pants - Nine and Company
Shoes - So old the brand is worn off of them
Bracelet - Borrowed from Letote (I loved this bracelet so much I almost kept it!)


This was my Tuesday work outfit.  Here's my thoughts on this dress - I love the pattern and color but I don't think it is the most flattering on my figure.  I think it makes me look wider than I actually am.  I also think it would look better with sandals but since I was wearing it to the office and had to meet with clients today I tried to dress it up with heels.

Dress- White House Black Market
Shoes - Sears

  1. Yay for your first Pleated Poppy post, and congrats on your recent weight loss. I think you look great in all your outfits. I see what you mean about the dress - the pattern on the bottom hits right across your hips. I know it's time consuming, but I have found many wonderful things at thrift stores for great prices.
