((my first!)) WIWW post

w-w-wwwhat? WIWW? I'm not stuttering. 

This is my first  What I Wore Wednesday post, friends!

I've stalked admired from afar as Lisa Leonard, Lindsey (The Pleated Poppy), and many other of my favorite bloggers displayed for the world to see what they wore the previous week. I honestly never thought I would ever do this post...in fact, I probably made fun of it to Ari once or twice. 

BUT, now that I'm working at home full-time ((YAY!)), I've realized how frumpy I can feel when I stay in my REI Cabin Fever Pants all day...and who wants to feel frumpy? Not to mention, this past week, as I've showered ((or not showered)) and have gotten dressed immediately upon waking up...I've been tremendously more productive. No lie. 

So today, I am linking up with Lindsay and showing you what I wore! You outfit post haters can roll your eyes all you want. ;) Here are 6 days worth of outfits..


(( To prove that I don't take myself too seriously. ))

  13. Your WIWW post is definitely the BEST out of anyone's so far. I love all of your colorful outfits and your hilarious modeling - cannot wait to meet you in April. And because of you, I am vowing to do my WIWW post next week. Starting today, I will put on a bra and do my hair...

    ReplyDelete
  14. You got the husband to take photos of you! (and he did such a good job) and you did such a great job modeling (second job maybe?) ;)

    no WIWW post from me this week-- none of the outfits are cute enough to share w/ the rest of the world. (ie blah boring day job outfits)

    ReplyDelete

    will not ever do this post b/c i refuse to wear cute clothes to "work".

    ReplyDelete
  18. You have the cutest style! I did my first outfit post today too, but I was way less ambitious - just one for me. Not sure how these fashion bloggers do it so often!

    ReplyDelete
  19. seriously a favorite post, it's just more interesting to see real people's style than magazine model's style!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Look at you cutie mccuterson! I love the ruffled cardigan! What a great idea! Isn't a coffee cup/mug the best accessory?

    ReplyDelete

  28. This on my top five favorite outfit posts! Kim you have a lovely eye for color and layering! (Is that ruffle tee the one Shabu made? I still have mine--though fits funny in the shoulders.)

    ReplyDelete
  29. You look ADORABLE in all these outfits! I love that you're doing a WIWW series, and you totally hit it out of the park with this first one!

    So sad but true that putting your pants on makes your day so much more productive. I wish I could live in my jammies, but then I'd end up lolling around and asking if I could work from home everyday!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Can you please add a tutorial of how you added the ruffles to your cardy??? I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Welcome, cute outfits, and you look like you are having so much fun with it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Please keep them coming! I always find these posts inspiring and it gives me ideas on cute things to put together. I dress kind of boring about 80% of the time ;)

    I love your style and my favorite outfits would have to be days 1, 3, 4 & 6. The orange top on day one gives the prettiest pop of color and I love your earrings that YOU made. On day 4 I love your blouse and cardigan. The added ruffle to the cardigan from Fossil completely makes the outfit. That is a brilliant idea. Now I just need a sewing machine.

    Chase did a great job taking the photos. Kudos to him. He also had a fantastic model!
