wiww, kinda

i'm linking up with my s.i.l. lindsey from the pleated poppy for what wiww, and in an effort to "kill two birds with one stone" i'm also linking up with sarah markley's 100 joys.

so i bet your curious about the "kinda" attached to my wiww title... the reality is i'm only sharing one outfit i wore, which in my opinion doesn't really constitute as a wiww post (yep, just lost blog love for that one). 

however, i am joining in because i am wearing a new sweater that i whatiworewednesdaywanted after seeing it on kathleen from the simple silly life
just one look at kathleen's wiww posts and you will scheme plans of how you too can raid her wardrobe (the tune from mission impossible plays in the soundtrack of my mind, and i imagine myself in a harness being lowered into her closet ready to grab EVERYTHING)!


sweater-old navy
(buy one get one free. i gave the other to a friend)
brown tee- target
posy pin-pleated poppy
jeans-kohls
boots-aerosoles

since leaving you with one outfit for a wiww post doesn't complete a wiww post (in my opinion), here is what my girls wore...
white t's- 2 for $10 at old navy
over the knee high socks turned into sleeves- target $5 each (i splurged on these)
embellishing and sock sleeve attachment- ME!
adorable girls- also me!

what's that? 
my girls are so cute you want to see more pix of what they wore... okay! 

emilie and josie were invited to be part of a christmas program.
the scene was a toy store. 
emilie's character was a glamor girl.
josie was a rubix cube.
glamor girl costume- from aunt sally (thanks aunt sally!)
rubix cube- made by daddy (my husband seriously rocks!)


joys:
finding the brown sweaters for 8.49 each {27}!
the ability to sew and create lovelies for my girls (thank you to lindsey for teaching me to sew) {28}. 
a husband who whips up a rubix cube costume on a friday night {29}.
josie singing loudly and shining brightly in the christmas play (30}.
emilie playing a "glamor girl" with grace and humility. she is truly beautiful (31}.

I love the sweater on you!!!! So perfect. And the posy pin looks lovely.

yup, i totally have the mission impossible song in my head.

i wonder if canadian old navy will have that sweater.
hmmmm... if suddenly you can't find yours (or your girls adorable shirts for that matter) don't look at me.
just sayin.

the girls are both absolutely gorgeous.

and 1000 cool dad points to michael for whipping up that wicked costume!

Just stoppin' by from wiww. I only show off one outfit too so it's totally ok in my book. Love that cute pin you have on.

the girls' shirts turned out darling... i love them!

emilie looks beautiful as a glam girl and josie as the rubics cube - how perfect for a colorful little girl.

way to go michael on making the costume. he may have to start a side business - fairy wings and now rubics cube!
