UPDATE: I first wrote this post two years ago (October of 2017). It’s since been one of the most visited pages on my blog and this time of year it’s pinned, visited and shopped from multiple times every single day. Each year, I keep the images and wording the same but update the slider below each outfit idea to current options. While I stand by each image and item I initially selected, it’s been a year, people. Those items are all sold out. Enjoy! Happy photo planning!
Last weekend was chilly. Really chilly. And as we sat in the back of a hayride I realized just how underprepared my littles were for another cold-weather season. Last years mittens are pretty much destroyed, they’ve outgrown their big coats and it’s time to scoop up some of my Fall and Winter favorites again. Since kids clothing is a topic I get asked about all the time, I figured I’d do an extensive guide including my “shoutouts” which are my favorite items year after year as well as the items I’d pick from head to toe to keep the kids cozy and warm and cute all at the same time. I hope you find this helpful! If your kids are growing like you’re sneaking steroids into their smoothies like mine are, you’re lookin’ for nearly a whole new wardrobe for them too. This guide has everything you need to help you on your quest! Including those $9 favorites since they’re just gonna grow out of em’ anyway and also the investment pieces like coats and boots to buy big so they last you two seasons.
Here we are, friends. We made it to the one month mark of What I Really Wore! I’d just like to draw your attention to Monday and say this is just about as real as it gets. It was cold outside but Monday is a homeschool day which means I was drawing chalk on the driveway and playing outside with the kids. This is a true gym outfit-not one ounce of cool athleisure in it- so there you have it. Some days I feel like wearing a cozy sweater and jeans and some days just call for a hoodie and joggers. That being said, I think I’ll be taking a break from this series until maybe December. What do we think? Let’s dive into week 4.
My mirror-selfie game was weak this past week but here are 5 outfits from the past 7 days nonetheless! It included the typical stuff like school drop offs, homeschool, workouts and mom life but I also had a visit from a friend, a sisters night and a pumpkin-patch family day. Let’s dive in!
Week two! I didn’t photograph my tee and shorts the two days I worked out (because you can’t buy my 2004 reebok outlet shorts anywhere, friends) but I snapped the rest of my outfits as promised. This week was the same balance of homeschool, school drop off, evening Bible Study and date night.
You guys asked to see what I actually wear in day to day life and I’m so happy to introduce the first edition of the Weekend Notes. For the next four weeks, I’m going to share what I actually wore this week on the blog. I’m vowing to keep it real (I may move away from the iPhone mirror shot but for now, that’s holding me accountable!) which means some weeks has a whole lot of athleisure thrown in there. A little bonus: at the end of each post, I’ll answer the top 3 questions asked that week via social media and email. After one month I’ll evaluate based on page views and feedback to see if this is something I’ll do long term. Ready. Set. Go!
