What I Wore Wednesday

Let me start off by saying a couple things…
1.  I’m ALMOST eligible for an upgrade on my phone and boy is it time!  My phone has always taken horrible pics.  Hopefully, there is an end in sight!
2.  I need a full length mirror!
3.  I should have stood in front of the toilet!  (So it’d be hidden.)  Ugh!  Sorry, you have to see that!  ha!
So…today I’m linking up again with The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.  I wanted to include many more outfits but I’ve already blogged those pictures (fair and pumpkin patch is coming up).  Anyway, so there’s only one outfit today.  It was pretty simple.  A tank, plaid shirt, jeans, and boots.  Nothing crazy or super interesting to the human eye…but this outfit was SO much more than that.  
Wait for it ladies…these jeans were my “skinny” jeans before I got pregnant with Bowen.  You know the jeans that are your tightest fitting, have to suck-in-to-get-them-buttoned type jeans??  These are the ones I’m talking about!!  I tried them on in April (Bowen was born in November) and there was no hope.  But…I thought I’d give it another shot and they fit!!!
(If you’re one of those people who has a baby and gets back in your “skinny” jeans in 2 months…you wouldn’t understand the importance of this.  Sorry.  We ALL feel bad that you’re having a hard time understanding why I was so excited about this.  Really, we do!)
I feel like we should ALL celebrate today!

Here’s a shot of my boots.

I searched online and found some really cute plaid shirts that I thought I’d share with you.  You can really dress these up or dress them down depending on the day.

Love this one from Gap!  It also comes in some other fun colors.
This one….would totally work in the fall or spring because of the red and brighter blue.
And this one….it SCREAMS fall to me!
And this shirt…all are some favorites at Gap right now.

I saw this one at Old Navy last week and it was SO cute in the store.
This shirt is at Nordstrom right now and it’s so cute!!
This plaid shirt has a little more of a western flair.
This one by Jessica Simpson is 40% off right now.  Great deal!
Hope I inspired you to “add a little plaid” (ha ha…love that it rhymed!) to your closet today!!

    Congrats on getting back into the skinny jeans! I'm realizing that some of mine are a little baggy now, so that feels exciting. I may be shopping for new jeans soon! Visiting from The Pleated Poppy!
