WIWW: Shades of Purple & A Little Print

It’s Wednesday.  Can I get an AMEN to the simple fact that this week is halfway over? This week is my four day weekend.  Every other week I work so that I can be home for four days with my sweet twin babies (Friday-Monday). So, today is really like my Thursday..and tomorrow is really like my Friday.   Next week I’ll work Tuesday-Friday and be back on Monday.  Did you catch all that?

It’s okay if you didn’t..

What really matters is that today is my Thursday πŸ˜‰

How about a little color to help you over your mid-week slump?  Remember when I told you all about my love for Loft cords?  I sort of fibbed a little.  Unintentional, you see. 

I told you I only have 2 pairs of colored corduroy pants.  I lied.  I do in fact have a pair in hunter green, red, and these in oh-so-pretty Easter egg purple. I feel so festive wearing these!    

The sweater is last season from Loft- and looks more navy than plum purple in these pictures.  But you’ll just have to take my word for it that it is indeed purple. Hopefully I haven’t lost too much of my credibility with you due to my little lie.  But, really.. it has been almost a year since I wore any of those colors, and when I was searching for something to wear to a baby shower over the weekend, these popped out between my jeans and dress pants.

I was like ‘ooohhhh yeaa, I remember these!’  I had only worn them once before becoming pregnant, so they were easily forgotten. 

I had to get over the fact that I would never be one of those women that wear their normal clothes with a belly band through their entire pregnancy.  Curse you women.  I went from having a 13 week belly to 8 month belly within like 3 days.

True story. I was in my third trimester for like 6 months. 

Anyway, bed rest prevented me from getting much less use of any clothes, maternity or not, further than yoga pants and a tank top.

 cardigan / Loft (last season) * shoes / borrowed (thanks to my girl, Jann G!)

Shopping in my closet has been a lot of fun.  I’m finding all kinds of ways to mix and match my wardrobe- and since I haven’t worn a lot of what I own in almost a year, it is like I’m wearing new clothes all over again!

Anyway I can save a buck these days.  Diapers have consumed all of what was left of my clothing budget. 

I’ll see the inside of a shopping bag full of clothes again one of these days.
