WIWW: January 6-12, 2013

What I Wore Wednesday is my motivation for wearing the clothes I own, finding new ways to mix and match outfits, and not wearing the same three things all the time!  A bit about my days to go along with the outfit, so these weekly check-ins are a nice journal of my life too!

pave bead necklace // EveryDay Icing
grey cardigan // Forever 21
grey tights // Gap
silver flats // PayLess

Church and small group took up most of the day.  I finished up the weekend by getting organized for the upcoming week – going through all the Christmas cards one more time before recycling them, filing mail from the week, etc.  The best part was the premier of Downton Abbey… too bad I fell asleep and had to watch the DVR the next day!

purple v-neck sweater // old
double strand of pearls // gift
grey pants // Banana Republic via eBay
black flats // PayLess

My new pearls were a Christmas gift from my parents – my mama knows just what I’ll love!  Back to work, with a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon.  It was a good visit – I’m feeling great, and my medications have finally been adjusted to control my Crohn’s and stop the flare-ups I’ve been experiencing in the last few months.  Good visits at the doctor are rather a novelty for me, so I was pleased!  My reward was to watch the Downton Abbey season 3 premier that I missed from Sunday 🙂

floral peplum top // Belk
black pearls // eBay
black pants // Banana Republic
black heels // PayLess

Trying out the peplum trend for the first time!  I found this when shopping in Mississippi – I miss the sales at Belk!  Went to the gym after work.

blue sweater // thrifted
floral cardigan // Old Navy via eBay
white teardrop necklace // GroopDealz
grey pants // old
black heels // PayLess

My favorite day of the week because I always look forward to pizza for dinner and Project Runway!  Sad, but true.  Before pizza, I went to the gym again after work.  I’m trying to keep up with my resolutions (Exercise More, Cook More, Travel More)!

short sleeve sweater // Forever 21 via eBay
owl necklace // inherited from my Grandma
grey skinny jeans // Gap via eBay
black boots // Belk

Finally Friday!  My Grandma passed away a year ago, right before the start of 2012.  I recently received some of her jewelry, this owl necklace among them.  I love it!  I worked out during my lunch hour, and after work we went out to a Korean restaurant with Sam’s colleagues.  Sam’s boss ordered lots of dishes for us to share, which was fortunate since I had no idea what to order… and it was so good!  Even Sam was full by the end.

striped top // thrifted
chevron necklace // GroopDealz
navy sweater // Target
grey jeans // American Eagle via eBay
silver flats // PayLess

Such a productive Saturday – my favorite kind!  Slept in a bit, but still up early enough to claim the laundry room in the basement.  My greatest fear is sleeping in too late and not being able to get any laundry done all day!  Sam helped me with the laundry loads, clean the bathroom, vacuum, catch up on the dishes, and run errands.  After all the chores were out of the way, we relaxed all afternoon and then went to a movie (Zero Dark Thirty – the tortue scenes were very hard to watch,  but overall very gripping and deserving of the Oscar noms!).
