Weekly Fashion Parade: March 17-23, 2011 3


I used to do “What I wore today” posts on my old fashion blog, “Prissy’s Closet.” After AJH was born I decided it was too hard to keep 3 separate blogs up and running (My family blog, my fashion blog, and my writing blog) so I merged them happily into one central location where I focus on ALL things beautiful, whether in family, words, fashion, or music.
I follow other blogs with “what I wore” posts and I always look forward to seeing them. Even if we share different taste, I find it very interesting and intriguing to see what other people choose to wear on a daily basis, whether going to work, going to church, or staying home with the kids.

Here are some of my favorite:
What I Wore: A personal style blog (one of, if not, THE original what I wore bloggers)
Dear Baby (she posts the cutest maternity outfits)
A Room Somewhere (she does a weekly What I Wore post every Wednesday)

The Posessionista (she doesn’t give her own outfits, but she does post where to find all of your favorite tv personalities’ outfits! Thank you to MHH for passing this one along.)

As I get older and embrace mommyhood, I am finding my style evolve into something both comfortable and authentic. I hope my upcoming fashion posts will be just as much fun for you as they are for me!

    Love this post! The jeans are all fabulous. And I am the same about black and brown together but those shoes definitely pulled it all together. But my favorite outfit was the last one – love the dress & boots!

    Love it! You're a cardi girl after my own heart! I am such an old lady at heart with my collection of cardigans ha.

    I adore black and brown together as long as you pair it right (and you did!) and love love love the kitten heels.
