What I Wore Wednesday 12.12.12

Today’s the day I share my outfits from the week with The Pleated Poppy’s What I Wore Wednesday.  I pair my outfits with inspirational photos.  Read more about that here.

OK, first can we comment on the date—12.12.12?  So cool.  Last one for a very, very long time.  Last in my life time, I suppose.


I really wish I had an olive or black jacket to go with this.  I had a sandy colored one but it went back to Target with a hole and I’m not sold on the style anyway.

This little guy cracks me up!

The similarity between these two photos is kind of crazy.  Look at the blue sky, caramel tones in the middle and sandy color at the bottom of the photos.  Even the different types of brown are mirrored in the same places.  Freaky! 

Also?  New boots!  My Nine West ones had lost their form and kept falling down. If you look in the two previous pictures, I’m crossing my legs just to make sure I can hold up my left boot so it didn’t slouch more than the right.  Classy! 

I got these boots for an extra discount during some holiday sale.  I love how Nine West shoes consistently fit my foot like a glove.  Boots bought through the mail?  Amazing!

I found out this week that fungi is actually pretty beautiful.  If you can get past the fact it is fungi, you’ll be amazed at all the shapes and colors!

Alrighty, last week I asked if any of you’d be interested in accepting an inspirational photo challenge and you said yes!  I’m so excited! 

You have all week to figure out an outfit inspired by the photo.  Then, take your picture (if you want!) and either Instagram it, tweet it or put it on your own WIWW blog post, or just email it to me and I’ll take care of getting it uploaded.  I’ll have a linky here so we can share the links to the pictures and be able to see all of our inspirational outfits in one place!  Won’t that be fun?

So without further adieu, here is your photo:

I picked this one because black, white, gray and red are probably colors that most people have in their closets.  Also, I know a lot of people are wearing red this time of year.  And gosh, don’t you just love that God dressed this little finch in polka dots??

To get your juices flowing, a very simple outfit would be a white shirt, black cardigan and red accessories.  Simple as that! 

If you’re feeling really challenged, I’d love to see someone pull together the polka dots, the peachy color AND the red without looking crazy as a bird!

Have fun with this and please, please don’t go out and buy something to make this work.  Part of the point is being inspired to use the clothes you have in different ways. 

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.  I’ll be doing one as well so no matter what, you won’t be alone!  Have fun and see you back next week!!


  1. Oh my, I instantly thought of like 5 different outfits I could put together from what I already have that go with that photo, hee-hee. Can I just say, I’m proud of you for a) buying yourself new boots without a “special occasion” and b) for putting stripes under that plaid shirt. Very cute!

    • I waited as long as I could on the boots…the shame of walking around with uneven boots won over :) So funny you point out the stripes/plaid. Definitely was a stretch for me!

      Yay! Can’t wait to see your outfits. Pretty sure you should play dress-up and take a picture of all 5 :)

  2. Some beautiful outfits! I really love the orange top and the stripes under the plaid. Oh and are those leopard print boots? Super cute! Love the photo coordination/inspiration also. :)
