What I wore Wednesday

So, for the second week I am joining Lindsay at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday. But I put my own spin on it, and call my version the garage sale edition.
Our weather is still so screwy, last week we hit highs in the 90's, but this week, we had some overcast mornings where the weather didn't warm up into the 60's until late afternoon. I find that I change my clothes quite often. I was thinking that I did 2 loads of laundry a day because I have three kids, but nope, it's because mama changes four times a day!
Let's start with Thursday. It was in the 90's by late afternoon, and we don't have air conditioning, so it was literally cooler outside than it was inside. So, a few friends threw together a last minute beach picnic to get us all out of our houses in the evening. It was wonderful!
I wore my MacGyver Dress that I made from a free box pillowcase, and a 50 cent Hollister tank top.
Total cost for the outfit: 50 cents

On Friday, I totally forgot to take a picture, but everything I wore was from a garage sale, and I am sure you will see it next week.

Saturday was a lovely day that we spent at the beach and on the boat.

Tank top-Banana Republic-50 cents

Skirt: Free! Made from my hubby's old t-shirts-tutorial here

On Sunday we headed to church and it was a little chilly in the morning

Tuesday I took the kids to swimming again, then to the park and home for a playdate before going to a focus group meeting I had at Starbucks. This was a four outfit day, but I only have two pictured-the others were workout gear for my A.M. workout, and different gear for mowing the grass.
