What I Wore Wednesday (a day late)

Fortunately for me, Lindsey over at The Pleated Poppy had a week like I did and posted her weekly What I Wore Wednesday a day late. Whew! This week, again, has been busy, but the reason I didn’t get to post yesterday was because I was celebrating my three year anniversary with my hubby! I married this amazing guy down in Mexico in a little sleepy town that no one really knows about, on the beach at sunset. We had 24 of our closest friends and family with us, and although the weather was unbearably hot, everyone stuck it out and had a good time. So baby, here’s to you, the love of my life and the saint that you are, thanks for putting up with me, for loving me through better AND worse, and for being my best friend.  You make this crazy life worthwhile!!

Anyway, enough of my lovesick blathering, here’s my week (for the most part):

Thursday-hair appointment

Shirt:  Thrifted and refashioned

Cargo Pants: thrifted

Shoes: Thrifted years ago and recently rediscovered in the back of my closet!

Friday-We drove from North Texas to Eastern New Mexico for my husband’s 20 year reunion, so we were in the car most of the day.  I forgot to take a photo that night when we went out, but here’s what I wore (just taken a few days later when I unpacked it).  Please excuse the fact that the photo does it no justice.  The top is one of my favorites and you can’t even see it 😦

Black Cowl Neck Jersey Top (with pockets): Target

Jeans: Big Star

Booties: Guess, thrifted

Saturday-Dinner and dance for the reunion

Dress:  Ross from probably three years ago

Shoes: black patent BCBG, thrifted

Necklace: Brighton (thanks Mom!!)

Sunday-we spent most of the day driving back and by the time we got home late that night, I did not feel like taking a picture!  Then we got up on Monday and noticed that Fat Dog’s neck was all swollen and that he just wasn’t himself.  We called our vet, took him in and the initial diagnosis was Cushing’s Disease.  For those that don’t know what that is, it’s a disease of the endocrine (hormonal) system that is caused by either a pituitary problem or an adrenal tumor.  The adrenal gland sits on top of the kidneys and secretes hormones, mainly the steroids that the body needs.  His is in super production mode, making him very sick.  I cried most of the day and was not about to take puffy eyed pictures in my non-descript t-shirt and jeans.  I’m sure you understand 😦

Tuesday-Vet and various errands

Dress:  Old Navy, thrifted

Shoes: Bandolino, thrifted years ago

Pin: Macy’s on sale for $2!  This dress is a large and makes me look like I’m wearing a tent, but I love that it’s linen and that it’s nice and breezy in this hot Texas heat.  A pin at the waist is a better way to show some definition rather than altering the item, especially since we’re going to start trying for a second baby here shortly and I want to be able to wear it when I’m pregnant!

Wednesday-anniversary dinner (sushi!!) and a movie

Dress:  Ann Taylor Loft, thrifted

Sweater:  Macy’s

Shoes: Ralph Lauren, thrifted

On my handsome hubby, his jeans are Affliction that he pays a fortune for, but that have lasted him over three years (and look great on him) and shirt, Men’s Warehouse.  J2 shops 1-2 times a year and therefore spends more on clothes.  That seems fair to me-I shop a lot and spend a little, he shops infrequently and spends a lot more!!  LOL!

That’s it for this week.  I love participating in this link party as it really makes me think about what I wear.  If you haven’t already, pop on over to The Pleated Poppy and join the fun.

‘Til next time,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have you tried the headbands with the little rubber grips on them? Those are the only ones that work in my hair. Hope you had a great anniversary!
