Today is What I Wore Wednesday and I’m joining Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy. I know it’s weird to show you what I’m wearing, but the purpose of WIWW is to help stay-at-home/work-from-home women get out of their pajamas.
It’s true. Some days we need lots of motivation.
I know it’s very shallow and possibly even careless to write about such trivial matters during these tragic times; however, I still cannot think about those little school kids in Sandy Hook Elementary without crying. It breaks my heart, but I have two children in my own home who think this is truly the best time of the year.
They look for everyone to be just a little bit happier during Christmas, and this year is a sad time for them too. Their schools have already begun implementing new policies. I honestly do not think it’s enough, but it’s one small step in the direction of protecting our children.
They have a Christmas sing-along this Friday that will now be behind closed doors. Traditionally parents and grandparents were invited. The community came out in support of the kids and to enjoy a time of cheer. That’s all changed this year, and the kids feel the weight of sorrow.
That’s why I am choosing joy this Christmas. It is not out of disrespect or because I am not weeping; I am. I am choosing joy for my children.
Moving on to the frivolous…
I don’t wear many dresses in the winter, because it’s cold and I don’t have any winter dresses; however, the other day I got a bug on to make one of my summer dresses work for winter.
Do you make summer things work in the winter?
Dress: Target, Leggings: Gap, Sweater: Target, Sparkly Shoes: Kmart
This lipstick is ridiculous, but I wore it anyway. It was a sample that came in the mail. My husband said, “The thing with your style is that there are no limitations.”
I guess that means it’s ok to wear ugly lipstick.
Pants (they’re cords): Kohl’s, Sweater: hand-me-down, Tank: Half-tee.com
That’s it for this week. I’m sure I got dressed on more than two mornings, but these are the only pictures in my camera.
What are you wearing these days?
Would you wear red pants??
And the really big question of the day – Do you dress up fancy for Christmas???
