Before I start today’s post, let me give you a quick summary of what How We Wore It is. Basically, a photo is selected and sent out to the bloggers that sign up for the month and then we put together an outfit simply inspired by the original photo! It’s super fun to see what everyone comes up with and chooses to wear. This is my second time being a part of it (here’s the first), and I think it’s a fun way for me as a lifestyle/parenting blogger to incorporate some fashion posts!
This is the inspiration from Elevate Everyday.
While I loved everything about this outfit, it just wouldn’t work with the snow/blizzard we were going through when I took these photos. I decided to take them in my bedroom because my room has the best lighting in the house, and blizzard. I’d have had to changed my whole outfit plan and then froze and then they’d be dark and dreary because it was gross out.
I paired this chambray top with a black midi skirt, a lace slip extender, brown booties, a big ole floppy hat, a necklace, and a purse. Simple, cute, perfect.
Skirt: Old Navy like 2 years ago. Top: AE a few weeks ago. Booties: thrifted. Necklace: F21 (gifted from my lil sis). Purse: Don’t even remember. Skirt Extender: won from a giveaway actually, but similar here.
Anyway, this outfit actually stumped me for a bit. I knew I wanted to wear my chambray shirt. I knew I’d probably pair it with a hat. I had trouble finding a bottom and forgot I even owned this skirt. This is actually the same skirt extender I wore in the last How I Wore It that I was a part of.
Can we focus just for a second on how cute this little fella is? He realized where I was and quickly insisted that he needed to be in some pictures with me. I tried to explain to him that it was ridiculously inappropriate for his little -only in underwear- self to be a part of these, but we cropped and made it work. Ha.
I also put a widget at the bottom for you guys to shop from if you’re interested in any of these. Two options of each thing I’m wearing! Trying to make it super easy for you guys to find this outfit. 🙂
Be sure to check out how the other ladies were inspired as well.

Guys, please please let me know your thoughts on this. I absolutely love clothes, I love fashion, I just keep it to myself, because I worry about going down the fashion blogging route. I worry that you guys won’t like that, so please… let me know your thoughts; if this is something you’d be interested in seeing, etc etc. I wouldn’t turn my whole blog into a fashion blog, but I’d incorporate a few more outfit posts here and there.
Also, May the 4th be with you.
