WIWW: Parisian Chic on A Budget

WIWW: We've been framed

This Wednesday, I am wearing the same old thing.  You see, we’re in the third month of summer and every week is like a rerun.  The other day my son said, “You always wear that LOVE shirt!” “That’s because I L-O-V-E it.”  I said. He rolled his eyes and walked away. It’s not that I’m [...]

Summer Hairstyles for Little Girls

Summer Hairstyles for Little Girls

I’m not great at doing hair. The truth is that sometimes my little princess looks more like a street urchin than royalty. Hey, we try.  We just don’t always get it right. On the days her hair is a hot mess, she simply wears her tiara. When she’s not wearing that tiara, we rely on [...]

WIWW: Deep in The Heart of Summer

WIWW Colorful Dot Statement Necklace

Hi friends!  We’re deep in the heart of summer. I only have one outfit for What I Wore Wednesday.  I’m sorry, but it’s been quite hot and I haven’t actually looked very nice.  I changed my shirt three times already today.  It’s really been that hot, but no complaints from me.  I’m just glad I’m [...]

Ways to Wear A Chevron Striped Maxi Skirt

Ways to Wear a Chevron Striped Maxi Skirt @ thedomesticfringe.com

You may remember me saying that I wanted to try and get some more use out of this maxi skirt.  Although I bought it in Walmart and did not pay much money for it, I still wanted to wear it more than one way. That’s when someone suggested I pair it with a tank top.  [...]

WIWW & The No-Makeup Makeup Look

Wearing Makep without Looking Made up

I tried to get dressed this week, despite the ridiculous flooding in our area.  Naturally I missed a few days, because I doubt you wanted to see my oldest clothes soaked with muddy water and other gunk (we’ll leave it at that, because I prefer not to think about what else could be in the [...]

WIWW – My Husband likes My Ugliest Outfit

multi-strand necklace from Kohl's

I’ve skipped WIWW twice, but this week I remembered to take pictures, almost every day.  If you’re new around here, I attempt to participate in What I Wore Wednesday each week, not because I’m delusional and think I’m a fashionista, but for simple motivation.  It embarrasses me into getting dresses and looking decent every day. [...]

Dresses are comfortable Dresses are Not Fussy (at least they don’t have to be) Dresses are Affordable Dresses are Easy for Busy Women So when a representative for Spiegel contacted me about [...]

Summer Style Alert

Easy, Breezy Summer Fashion: The Dress

  I bet you didn’t know this, but a “Summer Style Alert” is kinda like those weather alerts that run across the bottom of your TV screen.  Sometimes they tell you what you already know – wind and rain coming.  Meanwhile, it’s been down-pouring for the last hour and a half.  You look at the [...]

WIWW: Hair Crisis

Spring Orange Bag: Charming Charlies

It’s Wednesday again and I should be talking about clothing, but really, I need to discuss hair.  I’m having a hair crisis. After the modern mullet cut debacle and then chopping all my hair off, I am in crisis mode. It’s like I have someone else’s hair on my head.  Now I wouldn’t mind if [...]

Cheap & Trendy – Neon Stripes

Cheap & Trendy - Neon Stripes from Kmart

  I don’t like to pay a lot of money for trendy items of clothing.  Heck, I don’t like to pay a lot of money for classic items of clothing that I will wear for the next ten years. I guess I’m cheap.   Last week I took my son out shopping for shorts.  Our [...]

Fashion Essential: Mustard Colored Cardigan

Fashion: Jeans, Polka Dots, & A Mustard Cardigan - inspired by Lisa Leonard

6 Ways to Wear A Mustard Colored Cardigan   One of my favorite go-to items is a mustard colored cardigan sweater. I know we’re approaching summer, so it probably seems crazy to talk about a sweater; however, we’ve still been having some unusually cool days where I live.  It’s always a good idea to have [...]

Printed Pants – Take a Walk on The Wild Side

Wedge Sandals Target

  This is an exceptionally weird What I Wore Wednesday.  It’s not so much the clothes, but the actual photos that make these pictures freaky. I wish they were outtakes, but they are not.  I have one shot of each outfit and I’m talking in most of the photographs, with my hands.  Let’s just agree [...]

My New Favorite Outfit – Chevron Striped Maxi Skirt

Chevron Maxi Skirt from Walmart

It’s What I Wore Wednesday time again, the day I show you what I wore all week. I participate, along with hundreds of other women, in this weird phenomenon called WIWW. We don’t take photos to be self-absorbed or because we think we look great. We do it for motivation, so we’ll be aware of [...]

Layering Summer Dresses for Spring

Dress with sweater - Old Navy & Target outfit

I love wearing dresses. For me, the are so much more comfortable than pants.  That’s probably because I have a hard time finding pants that fit, but I like dresses for other reasons too. They are easy to wear.     They don’t take much thought in the morning.  Just throw one over your head [...]

Dressing for The Season You Want – Spring

Pink Wedge Sandals for Girls - Payless

Inspired by Jessie from Dream & Differ who always looks adorable, I decided to dress for the season I want. SPRING I dug through my closet and attempted to find some bright colors that could still be layered and warm, because don’t let the calendar fool you, it’s still winter in these parts.  In fact, [...]

WIWW & 30 Days of a Heart Monitor

me in woold rust sweater

Today may be my lamest attempt at What I Wore Wednesday yet, but then again, I remember some pretty boring weeks, so we’ll just chalk it up to a mix of bad fashion with a touch of winter funk. There is one person who very kindly asked me not to give up on What I [...]
