What I Wore Wednesday - Happy Neutrals

Usually, I wear neutrals when I'm feeling dreary. I'm just not really a neutral wearing kind of gal.  But today, I'm happy, and I wore neutrals anyway. =) If you're wondering why I'm so happy, I posted about it here on my new little blog that I created to talk about how God has been working in my life.  

Sweater & Skinny Cargoes: Target
Shirt: Gap
Boots: Rue 21

Bracelets: JCPenney & Target (Both were Christmas presents!)
Ring: Borrowed from my Sister
Earrings: Coldwater Creek (Christmas present!)

I wanted to give you a close up of all the fun jewelry I got for Christmas. I'm loving every bit of it!


I  really like this necklace that I won!  When Karly from Three Bees Creations contacted me after the giveaway, I was thrilled!  I was able to choose the number of pearls that I wanted in the necklace, and I chose four, which represents to me the number in our family... Me, the Hubs, Little Guy & Little Miss.  Every time I wear it, I'll have my family close to my heart. Cue sigh . . . and eye roll for cheesiness. ;)


I hope you all are having a great week!  It's hump day, so let's all just keep on plugging along till we make it to the weekend, when we can relax and enjoy our friends and families.  That reminds me of a funny story.  One time, the Hubs went to the doctor's office and the nurse asked him, "So, are you working for the weekend?" He just said, "No." (He's not a big casual conversation with strangers person.) He thought she was asking if he had to work on the weekend. lol She gave him such a strange look and walked away.  She must have thought he was one wacky person that enjoyed his job so much that he didn't work "for the weekend." =)

I'm linking up today with Monday Mingle and The Pleated Poppy

Love the boots/skinny cargo combination! And the necklace is gorgeous. I have a Brigid necklace that I hate *not* wearing, because it's always so nice to have her close by :)

That sweater is so cute and cozy looking! And that story about your husband is hilarious--his was probably the first no she'd heard to that question!

I really, really adore that sweater you're wearing. I AM a neutral person, so it's right up my alley. That color looks very nice paired with yellow, too. I'll have to remember that!
