What I Wore To Meet the Queen {Sort of}

Okay, so maybe I didn't actually meet the Queen. Or any members of the royal family, for that matter.
But I did get to stand next to Princess Diana's wedding dress. And that, my friends, was pretty cool.
Bag- Vera Bradley "Side by Side Tote" in Suzani
Love this bag! It's so cute and functional.
Sweater, scarf- Old Navy
Tee- Banana Republic
Cami- Shade Clothing
Jeans- Gap
Shoes- Skechers

 Friday~ I was cleaning most of the day and running errands.
Sweater, jeans- Target
Cami- Shade Clothing
Sandals- Merrel



Saturday~ we went to my nephew's birthday party. My entire outfit is from Target (except the earrings, I think I got those at Macy's) The best part~ the sandals were on clearance for 70% off. I think they were under $5. 

Tuesday~ this is what I wore when I couldn't get into my dresser because I had painted the drawers shut. Yup, I'm that clever. Any advice on unsticking them without wrecking my dresser? I'm getting desperate {and I need clean underwear!}
Hoodie- The North Face
Tee- Gap
Jeans- Silver
Tennies- Nike

That's it for this week. Thanks for stopping by for another edition of What I Wore.
I will be joining Lindsey for her WIWW party.

  2. I love what you wore to meet the queen ;) How cool was that exhibit? I wish fabulous things like that would come our way, sigh. Love your Target steal; the color of those sandals is incredible! And you have a knack for layering. I normally look like Ralphie from A Christmas Story.

    1. The exhibit was great. It was really cool to see the iconic wedding dress and other outfits up close and personal. We had to drive a couple of hours to see it, but it was totally worth it.

      I might have snorted coffee when I read your Ralphie comment. "I can't put my arms down!" Love that movie! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks, Faith! I've been very drawn to color lately, which is odd for me. 75% of my closet is black or gray!

    1. Hi Cyndi~ Thanks for stopping by! I have to admit, I'm a scarf junkie! There's gotta be a support group for accessory-addiction, right?! ;-)

  9. Your hair is looking fabulous. I get Facebook pics taken by my pro friends to prove it is possible for me to look like a girl. I am in my workout attire 90% of the time they see me. I too adore scarves and have an entire drawer dedicated to them. You should to a scarf wearing/tying layering tutorial. I am confused about how to tie the large square scarves.

    1. Thank you dearest girl, but who are you kidding?! You are a gorgeous, fashion-queen, and have always been one of my idols! And if you are in workout clothes, it is because you were actually working out! Unlike myself, who is only in workout clothes because they are comfy ;)
