What I wore Wednesday

Welcome to another week of What I Wore Wednesday garage sale edition. We spent a lot of this past week just enjoying the end of summer.
Let's start with this outfit on Friday
Striped cardigan-Old Navy: 50 cents
Black shirt: 50 cents
Jeans:( recently hemmed ) Joe's Jeans: $10
Flip flops-J Crew: $1
Total: $12
Not sure why I am standing like a duck: priceless

I got in a long run on Saturday (I'm up to 9 miles now!) and afterwards we headed to my in-laws to celebrate my hubby's birthday

Striped cardigan-American Eagle:$1

Creme tank-Banana Republic: $1

Jeans-Joe's (same as above): $10

Total: $12

Sunday was a church day followed by finishing up my kids school supply shopping.

Navy top: $1

Striped pants-American Eagle: $2

silver necklace: $1

Total: $4

I bought these pants a few weeks ago but they were a size too big. If you can see the buttons on the top back, I just took those off and moved them in about a half an inch on both sides to make the pants fit better. Really though, I just wanted to show you a picture of my tush.



Monday
pink sweater-Old Navy: 50 cents
grey leggings: $1
Total: $1.50

I think I might be too old for leggings. It's actually my daughters outfit of choice so everytime I put them on I feel like my 8 year old. What do you think? Is there an age limit to leggings?




And my final day:
Yellow ruffle shirt-Old navy: 50 cents
Capri's-Target: bought years ago





I'm linking up with Lindsay at the Pleated Poppy and at Meet Virginia and Debbidoos

Great deals! I don't think there's an age limit on leggings, as long as you have nice legs, right? ;)

I love this post! You've inspired me to do some garage sale shopping this weekend..

Every outfit looks so well put together. I think the pink sweater with the leggings looks perfect for a day at the park or working around the house---very cute...

Mitz said...

I have a butt picture this week TOO! Haha! Every outfit is super cute and super CHEAP, love that! I really like that yellow striped cardigan, darling.

Carolyn @ My Backyard Eden said...

You're amazing! I love all of your outfits. Did you really find all of these at garage sales? I definitely need to take a better look at some sales in my neighborhood!

Paige said...

Super cute!!! And I love the leggings. You could put an age limit on almost anything if you wanted to, so I say, don't do it! :)

The Things We Find Inside

LOL when I was 8 I hated tights and legns but Now I am all about them! they are so cute! I'm 28 so I think I'm still ok to get away with them..... i hope that's not the age limit!

Claire's Creations and Photography said...

I LOVE your blog. I do think there is a certain age limit for leggings, but that's WAY up there. If I saw my grandma wear them, I might cringe a little. If I felt confident in them, I would probably never take them off.

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

Just so you know all your pictures look great. You will never see my tush on my blog or yours...so congrats on having a cute one that you can photograph to show you butt-ons. Don't worry, the above comment says it all...from a grandma of 15 who looks "OK" in boot-cut jeans! Glad you are following...I'll do the same. Have a happy weekend.

Tashia said...

I have that cardigan from AE! I love it too!

Debbie said...

Soooo cute...you always find the cutest clothes!

trish said...

I am just dying here! Those are the cutest things and you got them for nickels on a dime! You are a lucky girl indeed!! :o)
I hope you are having a nice weekend.
Sincerely ~ Tricia

This blog on hemming pants SAVED MY LIFE!! http://www.daciaray.com/?p=38 I think you can wear leggings till you can see the cottage cheese through them!! :)

Dear Baby said...

I passed along the link about hemming to my girlfriends too. So awesome.
There is a bit of info missing from this entry. Where are you getting these super discounted clothing? Thrift store finds? Garage sales? Deep clearance?

theteo5 said...

Dear baby, I'm not a big fan of Goodwill. I lack patience for the hunt AND I think that their prices are far too high! I get nearly all of my duds at garage sales, which is why my what I wore Wednesday is always "the garage sale edition".

Thanks for reading along.

I just found your blog via Finding Fabulous. I love this What I Wore series. I'm a garage-saler too, and most of what I wear (and what my kids wear) comes from them. I'm in a Banana Republic skirt right now ($1). Oh, and I'm 35 and love leggings. I think as long as you have on a nice long shirt it's ok...even with a little age :)
