What I Wore Wednesday

A few weeks ago I announced that I found a new cutie blog called the Pleated Poppy. Love her style, her house, and her real life "what I wore wednesday" linky party. Lindsey says it is a way to encourage oneself to get out of the pj's/yoga pants that are so common among moms. I find myself defaulting to a plain T shirt and jeans.

I know there are many (MANY) other blogs you can see what very stylish people wear, but I want to see what stylish moms wear. It's all a matter of practicality to me. I know I am not wearing the most trendy things, in fact I don't want to be. I didn't even want to before I was named Mom. That is not the point here. The point is making an effort, so here is my effort.

Anyway, I tried to pictures of myself a while ago but they all looked like this... remember?
So I tried another strategy. Let him be in the pictures and let the big bro take all the pictures. Ya, it worked, kinda. Focus is a bit tricky for a 6 year old I guess.
Sunday after church
Here are some pics from random days last week and the week before that I took late at night when the kids were in bed! Just because I would hate for you to click over here for just one outfit!


  1. i LOVE the top you wore to church! it looks so good on you! also, i like your dark denim jeans in the last two pics. and i like your blog title. one of my favorite songs has that line in it--caedmon's call, lead of love. it's a great song!

  2. Thanks for looking! The blog is indeed named after that song!

  3. Hi Jess! Love your post, and love your "stylish mom" outfits! I just posted for my first time today, and hope I've at least achieved a stylish mom look too! With picnics and this nasty heatwave we're going through right now, it was a VERY casual week!! Still I had fun with it!.. Have a great week! ~tina
