What I Wore Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! 
Lately, WIWW has been the only thing that gets me out of my pajamas. Hunter and I both have gotten quite lazy about getting dressed and we often have half a school day in before either of us bothers to get dressed. Oh well, it hasn't hindered our homeschool progress one bit!
 {in fact, it's one of our favorite parts about homeschooling!}

You know how a picture doesn't lie? Well that is very often the brutally honest case when I do a WIWW post.
  Upon reflection, I should have skipped the scarf or something with this outfit. There is just a whole lot going on here. It looks much cuter on the model, sans scarf.
See? {outfit is from Banana Republic, shoes are Target}

 Hockey mom uniform.
Scarf, hoodie, tee: Target
Jeans: Lucky Brand
Vest: Columbia
Boots: Uggs

I love this sweater. It's like wrapping up in an afghan.

Sweater: Lands End
Tee: Target
Jeans: Silver
Shoes: El Naturalista 

I'll be linking up at The Pleated Poppy for WIWW.

Hope your Wednesday is wonderful!


  1. How cute is the wall behind you?! And I love your mustard scarf, perfect for fall.. or hockey rinks :)

    1. Thanks! We measure everyone that comes to our house! Neighbors, friends, relatives... no one escapes the wall!

  2. I love all of your outfits.....i think i have alot of similar things in my wardrobe! I usually have the "hockey mom" look going on :). Where can i find the shoes from your last photo?

    1. I got the shoes at a local sporting goods store, but I think you can find them online too. Here's a link to the brand at
      Hope that helps!

  3. I love all your outfits. You always look so nice and put together, even in jeans and a t-shirt. I seriously admire that. You make me think more about how I am wearing things. And, I love the first outfit with the scarf.

    1. Thank you, my dear! Your sweet words made my morning!

  4. Love that Lands End sweater! And isn't it interesting how seeing a picture of an outfit can make you rethink the whole thing?

  5. love these looks! especially the "hockey mom" one!

  9. Jessie - I just wanted to thank you for doing such an accessible series for WIWW. I love looking at all the outfits but as a SAH/soccer taxi mom I haven't been able to translate a lot of the looks into my everyday life. Your outfits though are a great mix of cute & practical and I really, really appreciate it ~ especially the warm shoes. Its cold & wet in the Northwest and walking the girls to school in ballet flats is a thing of the past. :D Thanks so much!!

    1. Shannon, Thank you so much! You have no idea what this means to me! So often when I look at the other WIWW posts I think I shouldn't bother any more. It just feels silly to post pictures of my jeans and sweaters when there are so many genuine fashionistas out there. But it's a great motivator for me to put a bit of effort into myself and it really does make a difference in my self-confidence when I do so. And I totally agree about the ballet flats! They just don't cut it in a MN winter! ;) So warm, practical shoes, jeans, and sweaters it is! Thank you again for your sweet words. It meant the world to me! <3

  10. looks cute! love a sweater that feels like you're in a blanket.


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know what you think.
