What I wore Wednesday

Okay, so I'll be the first to admit that fashion was not always my forte. I've always been interested in it, always loved shopping for clothes, SHOES and jewelry, but I just wasn't that GOOD at it.  Thanks to some of the awesome fashion blogs for moms (like Stylin Mommies!)  I think I'm getting a little better at it...and having TONS of fun too! (Although I can't say that my hubby is enjoying my shopping habits as much as I am!)

I think one of my biggest reasons that I didn't enjoy fashion as much was my insecurities with my own curviness.  When I was in High School I was anorexic and bulimic for nearly two years, which stemmed from a relationship with a boy who never made me feel good enough.  Now I'm learning, with much love from my AMAZING husband, to be happy with myself just the way I am!  That I can feel comfortable in my own skin and happy with myself, even if I'm not a size 2 (or 4 or 6 or 8 even!) I'm hoping that doing this will help me even more! :)

My favorite places to shop are Old Navy, Forever 21, Department stores like Macys and Elder Beerman, and all the great new boutique "deal" web sites such as GroopDeals, Very Jane, and Zulily. I love shopping, and I love it even more when I get a great deal! I'm a sucker for boots, TOMS, necklaces, and sundresses, and I'm transforming my closet from a boring neutral palette to LOTS of colors and patterns!

Today it's super cold and snowy in Ohio and I'm staying home with the kiddos.  This day just screamed for a warm cozy sweater and this is one of my favorites!  And yes!  I usually dress up even on days I stay at home all day with the kids...I think when I'm dressed with my hair and makeup done I feel better, and I get more done than I do when I wear super comfy clothes.

So here's my first edition of What I wore Wednesday...please don't judge the bad picture, next time I'll go outside or something ;)

Sweater: Forever 21
Shirt: PacSun (old)
necklace: Groopdeals
Jeggings: Old Navy

Hope you all enjoy your Wednesday!!! It's almost the weekend!  Woohoo!!
