What I Wore Wednesday (and probably Thursday and Friday)

So, I dig blog linkup parties. I don’t do them a whole lot, but figure they’re a great way to connect with people who ALSO blog.

In my reading of the blogs, I’ve found this …thing… where girls post what they wore on Wednesdays over at The Pleated Poppy.  I just got on there, and there were almost 300 chicks showing off what they wore today.

Wanting to be loved and accepted and awesome, I’ve decided to be a part. This is what I wore today:

I noticed some trends in the photos that I’m trying to copy here.  1. All (okay most, okay some) girls had their hands out. I’ve learned that this makes you look skinny. In an effort to look TOTALLY skinny (which isn’t easy for me, because you know, the food) I decided to put my arms WAY out. Totally works.

Now, to the ensemble. I paired an Old Navy green hoodie with my black and white checkered pants. They’re capris, which show off my fantastic ankles. The hoodie has horizontal stripes, which draws your eyes out, and preferably away, from my love handles.

I am of course, doing a fish face. There is an unwritten rule on the internets that fish faces are necessary if you’re a narcissist that loves posting pictures of yourself. I hold fast to that rule.

I used my Chi straightener (give me some money Chi, or at least products) and got bored about a third of the way in. I then used one a twisty tie from the loaf of bread I was eating to hold up my hair. I stacked it up high on my head to accentuate my receding jawline.

And, lest anyone should ask me to do ANYTHING for them, I did nothing to cover up the bags under my eyes from the several sleepless nights (ie, bad choices) so as to say, “I’m tired. Don’t bother.” Most people automatically assume I’m not sleeping because of my precious children. Lies. I’m not sleeping because of Pinterest.

I also made sure the inside of my toilet was shown because, jerks, IT’S CLEAN. Which is EXACTLY why I don’t dress up. Why the hell would I feel a need to look spiffy while I cleaned the crap out of the toilets? Sorry. No. I dress for the job I have.

If I dressed for the job I wanted, I’d wear a swimsuit and a snorkel, but it’s cold and I don’t live in the Bahamas. 

Hey, so we’re totally doing this- next week I’ll have a link up for “What I REALLY Wore Wednesday”. Get your posts ready!

 Someone remind me on Tuesday.

  1. You are still beating me by a million.I am wearing my pajama pants. I DID change out of the shirt I slept in last night. But that's the extent of it. Also: hair not touched either.

  2. Ellie is out of town. (So is Matt, but he's not usually home by this time.) I'm home alone and bored and a little sad. You made me snort water out my nose.Thank you.

  3. Here in Ioway I put away all the warm weather stuff and now it's almost hot (of course!). Since I didn't want to drag the tubs back out I wore my workout clothes. Did I work out? No. But did I put a bra on? Yes, yes I did. I should score some extra points right there. Are there points for this? 😉

  4. Great post!!! By the way, I came here through Pinterest, via a link to your "Angry Down syndrome awareness post" from last year. That was an amazing post, and then I wondered what you're up to, and came to today's post. Which was a good way for me to relax and smile after getting angry together with you in that awareness post 😉

  5. We should take over that fashion Wednesday thing. I had to get dressed today because moe has speech therapy, but my hair is awesome: went to sleep wet and no brush or ponytail can cover the lump on the left side. I think it works for me.

  6. Oh jeez. I swear, MOST of my traffic comes from my TuTuTuorial (on the right) from Pinterest, and then the people get here and are all, "OOOH cute tutorial! I'll read on! Oh wait, is this NOT a craft site? SHUCKS!"but worse.

  7. I heart black yoga pants because you can sleep in them and wear them to take the kids to school and no one knows you are walking around in your pjs. Plus black is super slimming.

  8. I laugh. I pee. Just a little. The only reason I decided to homeschool was all-day pajamas. And no bras. And something about the best interests of my kids but I forget because did I mention the pajamas?

  9. Oh my God, thank you for this post. I do not understand the whole What I Wore Wednesday thing. I work from home, so I'm only wearing something acceptable if I actually have to leave the house for a meeting with a client. And why are there so many pictures of women in fashionable attire in bathrooms? I don't get it. (Nice toilet, by the way.)

  10. Bread twist tie for your hair? Genius. You should pin it just to see how many people repin it. I probably would.I almost forgot to wear underwear today.

  11. I ❤ you Lexi! I so wish I had the kind of job where I could wear checked capri pants and a striped hoodie. But NOOOOO I have to wear this stupid black prison guard looking uniform…Oh wait…I AM a guard. I envy you.

  12. I'm in Upstate NY and we got hit as well, but nothing like those on the coast!I recently tried to reach you via email, but didn't hear back. Knowing how it is with so many emails coming into everyone's Inbox nowadays, I thought that maybe posting a comment would be a quicker and much better way to connect.I am working with a very special lady, Dr. Julia Kinder, who has an 8 year old daughter with Down syndrome. We're trying to promote A PETITION REGARDING DOWN SYNDROME and I thought you would be a great resource to help spread the word.PETITION – https://www.change.org/petitions/medical-school-faculty-require-complete-education-on-down-syndrome-for-3rd-year-medical-studentsWe're also having all sorts of activities on her website Celebrating Down syndrome – http://www.juliakinder.com/DownSyndromeCelebration/We also published a national Press Release about this a few weeks ago, but we need the active Down syndrome community to get involved – http://www.prweb.com/releases/Dr-Julia-Kinder/Down-Syndrome-Celebration/prweb10028318.htmPlease let me know if you would help by posting some of this to your interested audience: colin@juliakinder.comYour time and efforts are so important as we try to change the stereotypes surrounding Down syndrome – dispelling the myths – and as we try to CHANGE THE WAY IN WHICH THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY PROVIDES RESOURCES TO NEW PARENTS. We can only achieve these goals with your help!Thank you so much!
