what i wore wednesday

Do you ever want to throw out everything in your closet and start all over again? About once a month, I get the urge to simplify my wardrobe—and wish that I could give a large fraction of it away. However, I don’t because I go through thoughts of:
“But I spent money on this, and it’s still in perfect condition.”
“Oh, but this person gave this shirt to me.”
“What if I’ll miss this in a few months when I’m looking to wear something in this color?”
“Can I wear it as maternity wear or pajamas?”

Suffice it to say, I’m not very successful at weeding things out. I do like the idea of developing a certain style—something that would stem from the simplification of my wardrobe. As I will transition to mom-of-two in the next week or so, I think it’s the perfect opportunity to begin that style shift. I want to find more of my “niche”—so that when I see an outfit, I think “That is so Rachel.”

I hope to still continue “What I Wore Wednesday” even through any awkward post-partum stages. :)


Dress: eShakti Victoria Dress (my color isn’t available anymore, but if you search for “Victoria”, there are red, black, navy, and beige.) My friend Ruth used this dress for her bridesmaids—beautiful!
Cardigan: Mossimo (Target) in Grey
Leggings: Mossimo (Target)
Boots: Target (old)

39 weeks!

See some of the other maternity outfits I’ve posted here.

Linking up with Lindsey for WIWW, and Alison for Get Your Pretty On.

Feel free to stay a while, or follow along!


  1. Love your entire outfit, but especially your dress! Glad I found your blog through WIWW. : )

  2. You look so cute with your baby bump.

  3. Love the outfit! You look amazing! The color of the dress is gorgeous. :-) I have a difficult time simplifying my wardrobe too. It hasn't helped that in the past four years my weight has gone up and down with pregnancies, exercise, and umm, chocolate and Dr. Pepper. That has meant a multitude of basic clothing items in multiple sizes.

  4. Wow! That color is very flattering on you and refreshing to see in Winter! New follower to your blog :)

  5. Yay just a week left! You look amazing still! I love that purple!

  6. Ahhh you're SO CLOSE!! :) How exciting! I know what you mean about wanting to find your own personal style, and also how difficult it is to GET RID of things! Especially clothes! I get so oddly attached to certain things, even if I never wear them! I have been doing sweeps of my closet recently, and am SO proud of myself for being hard on myself and just MAKING me get rid of things. If I haven't worn it in the past year or so, out it goes! (Unless it's a special occasion dress or something like that). It helps! Gotta make room for BABY!! :D


  7. You look fabulous! I can't believe you are 39 weeks pregnant! Congrats on being such a darling pregnant girl! :)

  8. I love that dress was a bridesmaid dress! Waaaaay cuter than mine - I wish eShakti had been around then :( You look so cute and gorgeous! You are seriously glowing!

  9. I love the outfit! You look great and hurrah for almost baby time.

    I'm rubbish at throwing stuff out too. I LOVE STUFF. My stuff to space ratio is way off :/

  10. What a cute dress! That color is amazing on you too! I have gotten better at donating a lot of my clothes that I don't wear anymore, but it is still a struggle.


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each one!
