Confessions of a WIWW Slacker

pleated poppy
By now, you all know the purpose of WIWW: it's meant to motivate stay-at-home/work-at-home moms to get out of our pjs and get dressed in something cute. The idea is simple; if you look good, you feel good. 
And I will be the first to say it works. 

But I'm lazy, and have gone back to my slothful dressing habits.
Most days I only get halfway dressed. 
I work {late at night and early in the morning} as an online English teacher, and my students only see me from the waist up.
So it's professional on top, pjs on the bottom.
The rest of the day I'm a homeschool mom, so I often don't leave the house...
why bother with pants?
Needless to say, WIWW has suffered.
But I've managed to scrape together a few pictures from the last two weeks.
