WIWW: My Heart{s} On My Sleeve

This week's What I Wore Wednesday is probably my favorite outfit to date.

Often times I will see an outfit (a really cute one!) on Pinterest, save it to my 'Delighted Shopper' board, and never come back to it.  Such a shame. Crying, actually.  I think I would save so much time if I could just whip out my pin-board for inspiration.. 'pin-spiration!  That's what it is there for, right?

Here is a recent pin I found interesting enough to save to my board:


Quite a unique way of layering, if you ask me.

So, my outfit was born. 
My best impression of the 'pin' picture.  Can we talk about how many of you have never been introduced to the glorious Sam Moon?  Let's take a moment to thank me for officially changing your life.  I've been going to Sam Moon for years!    
I love this outfit.. same in theory, but still pretty different from the original. 

The grey button down is another Christmas wish-list blouse that the hubby went right out and purchased for giving.  I have contemplated over in my brain how I wanted to wear it.  It is light, comfortable, and a great length; all good things for layering.  After getting used to the longer length of my maternity tops, I've had trouble transitioning back to some of my non-maternity blouses. 

Am I the only one with this trouble?  I confess to continue to wear a handful of my tank tops and a long sleeve shirt from Gap Maternity.  I only wear them at home,  but they are my favorite!!  I can't stop, wont stop.       

 blouse // loft * tank // express * jacket // loft
jeans // william rast * pumps // nine west
necklace // sam moon * bracelet // loft * watch // fossil 
The weather has been so random here lately.  It was 75 over the weekend and by Monday it was in the 50's with a wind chill making it feel like it was 35 degrees.

Texas weather is perfect for this kind of outfit.  Layering is a must for chilly mornings and mild afternoons. 

I so badly wanted to crop this last picture to hide my jean scrunch.  My heels were sinking into the grass!  I think it is time to change the scene for the WIWW pictures...

Thanks so, SO much for all the sweet comments and emails.  I am continually humbled and impressed by the kindness of complete strangers.  I.Love.It.

Period.

This outfit is ADORABLE!! :) Love it, I would have never of thought of putting it all together but it looks so cute!! Still wanting a hair tutorial?? Please!! :)

Rebecca @ Mommy in Heels said...

I am the same way! I had a baby in September and still wear some of the tanks and t shirts (I think its the length that I love so much!). Gap and Old Navy ones are the best!!

katie said...

Love the outfit!! I also rocked my maternity tanks for months because I loved the length...then I found the best long, fitted tanks at Vanity of all places! Check them out! :)

Kelsey Lenay said...

I love this! Your version is so much better-it's so wearable :)

XO, Kelsey

Sarah Tucker said...

Love this. You look so stinkin' pretty! And Jordan is getting good at Mr. Photographer! Maybe we need a date to take WIWW pics outside of our houses! Dead grass and dog poop always put a damper on my backyard pics. Truth.

Lovelovelove!

I've never really considered layering a sparkly tank over a top, but I think it's a great idea and the perfect way to extend those pieces we don't get to wear often. Great inspiration!

Found you via the I Feel Pretty linky!

Mandy said...

Wish I could find the sparkle top from that Pin. I love it and I love your outfit. You always have the cutest clothes. I don't find time to go shopping anymore for anything cute. I am also not too much of a "girly girl" with heels and all that. So I love seeing other mommy's who are. Keep it up gorgeous!

Charlie said...

Yours is a great interpretation of the pin!! I just had a similar pin-spiration moment when I looked at one of my boards full of wonderful ideas and thought 'why don't I come back here more often for great ideas!' Enjoyed your blog.

You nailed it! And I love that you made the pin your own by using what you had, so it is the same idea without being identical. Have a great weekend!

To start off, you look so pretty! And great mix and match, by the way. The sequin-embellished tank top look great with the polo shirt, too. Wonder how you've come up with this. Anyway, your tips are very well-appreciated. Thank you so much. Have a nice day ahead! :)
