WIWW : The Great Belt Debate

guess what y'all?

I actually put on real outfits every single day for the past seven days! I'm pretty sure this is the first week this has happened since I stopped working. It is definitely something to be celebrated. It would, however, be easier to celebrate if I actually had taken pictures of each outfit! {wah wah wahhhhhhh.}
Sadly, on several of my get dressed days, I need to be leaving right when Cody gets home from work to go to a work out class, so I've already changed and didn't get the pictures taken. From here on out I'll probably be relying on some more iPhone selfies to properly document seven full outfits!

shoes: j. roberts in ruidoso, nm

I literally put on this outfit to lay around my house and clean the bathrooms. Thursday was Cody's day off this week so it was a little bit lazy and I knew if I didn't get dressed, I probably wouldn't get anything done. You'll be happy to know that I did put on an apron to protect my clothes so that any cleaning supplies wouldn't hurt my new jeans. {Priorities.}  These are a modern skinny fit from Loft and are seriously the best ever. I wore them Thursday and Friday and already know I should buy another pair because I will live in them this fall.

Yeah... I should really take more pictures of my outfits to make it less obvious when I re-wear something :) Since I only had it on for a little while for being lazy on Thursday though, it seemed to easy to re-wear it for church on Sunday!  This does lead to a little debate though:

 belt or no belt?

I like it belted better, though it would look best with a colored belt. {with of course, the lazy day belt exemption that "isn't it enough that I got dressed today? must you people also expect a belt out of me?!?!" meaning, somedays you just need flowy and free!}

this picture here is proof of why I probably shouldn't resort to iPhone selfies. I would at least like to point out that my laundry is folded on the bed, and the mess on the floor is items griff drug out through the day that does get picked up at night. 

and if one mirror selfie wasn't enough, I did walk over to the window and take another picture in the natural light to show you a better idea of the color the dress. {I feel like one of our junior high students!}
