What I Wore. Ha.

A few weeks ago I posted a photo of me in my PJs at 8:00 at night with this caption:

"I'll never be a fashion blogger. Tonight I have to decide: do I sleep in last nights jammies that I wore all day today?"

I got some very sweet comments (as well as affirmation that I'm not the only one who occasionally spends all day in jammies!). I appreciate all of the sweet sentiments that I clean up well, but I was very serious that I will never be a fashion blogger. And since I'm not a fashionista, this post was very intentionally not posted on "What I Wore Wednesday."

I love finding a good deal and get excited over cute things, but you will never find me browsing Nordstrom's website just for fun. I go, find what I need, order it, and move on! I'm not the type to look expensive purses just because and dream of the day I might own them. In fact, I haven't bought a purse since the boys were born. I carry a diaper bag now! I wear the same pair of diamond studs every day. They have screw backs and aren't easy to change. They also have the added benefit of not being pull-able. I love a good necklace, but my grabby little guys have broken A LOT of them (including my favorite everyday necklace from Tiffany's) and now the thick chained Tiffany's heart is all they can't pull off. No self respecting fashion person wears the same earrings and necklace and never bothers changing purses! So despite the sweet comments I know that I'm no fashionista!

What all the sweet affirmations did remind me is just how much better I feel when I take the time to get dressed in the morning. I don't need to be fancy. I don't need lots of accessories. But clean clothes and "done" hair do put me in a better mood to face the day. In yesterday's link up post I wrote that real clothes energize me in a way yoga pants and sloppy tshirts never will.

Since I posted the PJ pic last week and truly reflected on how much better I feel when I'm out together, my goal has been to get dressed everyday. To hold myself accountable I've taken low quality iPhone selfies. And here they are!
