WIWW #3, The "We're Making Progress" Edition

It was a fantastic week. School started- it was great. I love my job. A lot. Jason got to go to go back to Lubbock, Texas and shoot skeet with his best guys this past weekend. I got the TV and Netflix Instant Streaming controls all to myself. Throw in a week of outfits that I loved and like the good Lord above, I can step back and say, "That's good!"

Friday - Work and Covenant Community Picnic
I'm going to be honest with y'all. I took pictures of Friday's outfit. I did. But I should have done that before I left for work. It was bad. Just....bad. And that's really sad to me because I felt really cute all day. Basically, capri's just do not do me any favors. Throw in a sleeveless top and everything was cutting me off at all the wrong spots. Lesson learned.

Monday - Work

I found this top at Marshall's over the weekend and it was love at first sight. I have to be careful in empire tops, mind my mom's constant admonition and stand up straight. Otherwise, people are prone to whisper, "Is Leslie hiding secrets?" Oh yes ma'am, that's just what my Grandaddy asked at a family gathering when I wore one such top and didn't watch my posture. Again, lesson learned.

Pants - Marshalls
Shoes - Target, years ago
Earrings - Target
Hair - Finally long enough to pull to the side!

Tuesday - Work

I hadn't worn this skirt or necklace in ages, but knew I wanted to dress in brighter colors this week. So, on it went!

Skirt - Target
Top - Ann Taylor Outlet
Sandals - Walmart
Necklace - Trees 'N Trends in Cleveland, TN
Hair - My go-to updo, the twist and pin

Sunday's the day! Lee's coming to help me edit my closet! Here's to getting rid of what doesn't work and seeing what will. Click below to see more ladies who are linking up with Lindsey over at The Pleated Poppy.

    I actually LOVE every single outfit you wore this week. It isn't no wonder you have felt good all week. That twist & pin hairstyle is ADORABLE :)

  11. That LRP necklace from Monday. Want.

    Can't find it on her site. May have to settle for the small charms and pearl one I found. Wonder if I can add more initial charms as our family grows?!
