What I Wore and the Challenge is Halfway Through!

So here it is, Wednesday again.  September here in Texas is finally cooling off a bit, but temps are still in the 90’s most days.  Rumor is though that it’s supposed to cool off this weekend.  We’ll see about that!  When we moved here five years ago, we were told that if we didn’t like the weather to wait 15 minutes and that is certainly true.  I just know that if I see another great set of boots (yes, I’m talking to you Olivia), I’ll turn a deeper shade of green than I already am.  But just wait, I’ll be whining about how I hate the cold come January.  That’s just me 🙂

I am more than halfway through my 30 day challenge of not wearing the same outfit twice and so far it’s going GREAT!  Want to try the same challenge?  Grab the button on my sidebar and jump on in-it’s a lot of fun.  Anyway, here’s my outfits for the week…

Wednesday, September 15th-Class because I swear, that’s all I ever do anymore is go to class…ugh

Sweater tunic:  Free People, thrifted from the Rufe Snow Goodwill (only $1 on sale day!)

White t-shirt:  Old Navy from probably four years ago

Jeans:  Big Star (I would name the fit, but they’re in the bedroom with my sleeping hubby)-these are my favorite ones too.  They’re a skinny cut with a little bit of stretch an they make a girl with hips look thin!  YES!

Ruffle Pumps:  Xhilaration Tabitha t-strap peep toe pumps from Target

Thursday, September 16th-just running around

Beaded tunic:  NY & CO from a few years ago

Jean:  Old Navy The Weekend boyfriend-cut jeans

Shoes:  Michael Kors Allie platforms off of eBay-you knew you’d see those again soon!!  LOVE THEM!

Friday, September 17th-Ugh, class…I threw a sweater over it because the rooms are so cold, but discarded it later.

Dress:  Ann Taylor Loft, thrifted from The Goodwill Boutique

Shoes:  Reaction by Kenneth Cole, bought years ago at T.J. Maxx

Saturday, September 18th-Breakfast with J2 and J3 at Our Place, then we were supposed to head to the Grapevine Grapevest, but someone’s best friend decided to drink too much tequila the night before and was hung over (thanks T-SPOT!!).  Then we found out the ASU/Wisconsin game was an early game, so we lounged around, ate pizza and watched ASU lose due to a missed extra point (and some super crappy refs).  The heartache…(sigh)…

Jeans:  Lucky (and I can’t remember the fit…but they are at least five years old)

T-shirt-ASU one, bought at the bookstore the last time I was home in Phoenix

Flip flops:  Old Navy

J3’s outfit:  Thanks to Gramommy for the ASU gear!  Love you MOM!!  (found out my mom reads my blog-is she a follower?  No…for shame…)

Sunday, September 19th-I was stuck with my nose in a business law textbook all day, so this is not a terrific look.  I did force myself to change out of my p.j.’s mind you, so I get points for that!

I’m seriously a walking advertisement for Old Navy right here-everything showing is from there.  Shorts from 2008, t-shirt and flip flops from this spring.

Monday, September 20th-my BLAW test and because I was up late the night before, I woke up late.  I normally don’t dry my hair (because it ends up looking like a frizzy mess), so I quickly showered and threw this on, mainly because the pants were comfortable.

Cargo pants:  Lady Hawthorne (I found a button that had the name on them since there are no tags)-thrifted from the Camp Bowie Goodwill

Tank Top:  Charlotte Russe

Cardigan:  Xhilaration from Target

Shoes:  black patent from Target (they were on clearance for $4)

Belt:  black patent, thrifted years ago

Necklace/Earrings:  NY & Co.

Tuesday, September 21st-I had a couple of errands to run and it was a little muggy, so I went for easy and light.

Turquoise tunic:  Twenty One-I have another one like it that’s longer, but this one has a cute fit.  Thrifted from the Rufe Snow Goodwill

Capris-oh how I love these capris.  Why do they have to be Motherhood Maternity?!?  I was rearranging that tummy panel all day long…

Belt:  I seriously have no idea.  It’s been in my closet for years-like as in 10 years because I remember wearing it that long ago!

Platforms:  Yes, back to basics, the basic black platforms that were thrifted years ago.  Come to think of it, I think they might have been No Boundaries ones…not sure on that.

So I know a few people have mentioned how self-conscious they feel taking their own pictures and I am in the same boat!  I always have such a goofy look on my face.  Anyone have a solution for that?  When I smile I feel like the Cheshire Cat…should (we all) just get over it?  The serious look is just not me.

And that’s it!  As usual, I’m linking up to the lovely ladies over at The Pleated Poppy and …Meet Virginia.  Thanks Lindsay and Morgan for hosting such fun parties!

    So funny that you’re wearing maternity jeans! Maternity clothes have certainly come a LONG way since I stopped having kids!

    OK, loving the first and second outfit. And don’t hate on me for wearing boots. When I have full-blown winter to contend with, no one will envy my wardrobe then!

      I paid over $40 for those capris so they get used! And how could I ever hate you?!? I adore you, I’m just super jealous that you get to wear boots. I wouldn’t trade your 50 below temperatures in January for anything, trust me 😉

    Haha! I was told today that I needed to smile in my WIWW pictures. Not sure if I commented last week, but I am an HEB girl and so need to go to the Goodwill on Rufe Snow. I go to the one on 157 (Industrial) they are good…better then Hurst.

      The one on Industrial is AWESOME! I just hate the traffic headed east on 121 so I don’t get over there as often. And I love the Goodwill’s in this area, they rock!

    Thank you for the comment on my blog. I hardly find anything at Precinct, but that is where I picked up my Yellow Box shoes. I haven’t been to Sam Moon in forever, but I do go to Charming Charlies in Southlake. It is about the same price and everything is color cordinated – I just need to wear what I have bought and buy more necklaces.

    I love all your clothes – I am so jealous of your thrifted finds – we have nothing like that here so everything has to be new – also Target – who knew they sold such fab stuff – have never been to one but I’d love to now. Totally agreed with you on what face to pull when taking your own photo – I don’t want to look like a nutter !!!
