Shopping with A Camera

It’s What I Wore Wednesday time again, and I realized something this picture-taking go around.  I should shop with a camera. There are outfits I wear that I think look cute, but after I see myself in a photo, I don’t like them so much.

Has that ever happened to you?

This picture is from Mother’s Day.  You already saw it, I know.  I only have so many pictures from this week though, so you’re stuck with a repeat.  Sorry.

My outfit:  Top is GAP clearance (with an extra 40% off!), Jeans are from a liquidation sale at a local shop ($9.99), Shoes are Miz Mooz, Necklace is Charming Charlies.  My daughter’s dress is Kohl’s from last spring and my son is wearing Kmart.

I’m kind of digging the rolled jeans.

Have you tried that look yet?

I’ll be honest, it takes a little bravery to walk out of the house looking like Huck Finn, but I think it works.

The bonus is that it showcases your shoes, so if you try it, wear cute shoes.

Here’s an outfit I thought looked better than it does.  Jacket is a hand-me-down, shirt is GAP clearance, Necklace is Charming Charlies.

My daughter is all dressed up for an art show at school.  Dress is from a local sporting good store (believe it or not) and the shoes are Kmart.

I’m not a big fan of this outfit in photos, but in real life, it’s so comfy.  I actually love wearing it.  Skirt is H&M last spring and I can’t remember where I bought the shirt.  Boots are Target.

FringeKid’s outfit is Children’s Place last spring.

The item I would love to add to my wardrobe this summer is a pair of brightly colored jeans.  Have you bought into that trend yet?  I think it’s super-cute.

Yup.  Easter egg legs.  It’s just what I need!

How about you?  What item would you like to add to your spring/summer wardrobe?

Don’t forget to visit The Pleated Poppy and The transatlantic Blonde for outfit inspiration that is way better than mine.

And head on over to BonBon Rose Girls for Monday Mingle!  See you there.

You know I love my turquoise jeans, but beware… once you buy one pair, you just want to keep collecting them. lol Right now I’m trying to convince the Hubs that I need another shopping trip at NY&Co so that I can get a coral pair and maybe a lavender pair and maybe a cobalt blue pair,too. lol
