Marianne | 4:01 AM

Do you know I have a childhood fantasy of owning Minnetonkas? It's true. First thing I bought my daughter.

Anyway, here are some blurry, exhausted photos of a new dress: http://looksgoodfromtheback.blogspot.com/2010/11/marianne-twinz.html

Pee Ess--love this weeks outfit's in particular. xx

Althea | 5:11 AM

Dude. DUUUUUDE. Coat samesies:http://altheasplaceforthings.blogspot.com/2010/10/dressy-mcdresserson.html

Well, sort of. I think this one is Betsey from like...2004. I am totally wearing that jacket today.

Kimberly {YeP, they are all mine} | 6:25 AM

I'm so excited you are doing this!!! I absolutely love your style :) I link to another blog every Wednesday...I'll be popping over here now, too.

Here are my travel garbs:



Clare | 7:05 AM

Love this whole weekly wear idea. Keep 'em coming!


abunformyoven.com | 7:30 AM

The cuteness.....it burns. IN LOVE with that yellow dress!! AND THE COAT, THE COAT?!!


Here's my little black dress edition


Zan | 7:37 AM

So here's the real question: You clearly had style before you were a grownup-married-with-kids. What about those of us who never had the style to begin with? Those of us who always looked like we were hit with the FASHION, NO! stick?

I am jealous of your effortless cool :)

The Mommy | 8:55 AM

I need to know the color of the red lipstick you are wearing! Great style inspiration.

controllingaspicyuniverse | 9:03 AM


Lauren | 9:53 AM

I LIVED in Minnetonkas growing up. Seriously. This is a Big Day. Nothing else could move me to take a photo of my bleary-eyed, zebra-striped self.


Cardi by Tahari (that sounds like Tardy for the Party and I like it), dress by Heidi Klum for Pea in da Pod (note to everyone: they make great maxi dresses even if you aren't pregs), necklace by Old Navy clearance rack. Not pictured: short black uggs. Gross.

Note: I am a curator at a historic house. That is not my actual home.

Anonymous | 10:21 AM

just for perspective... how tall are you and approx weight? love the red boots!

wonderchris | 10:54 AM

That giraffe print coat is AWESOME!!!

You've got style, girl!!

Elizabeth | 11:04 AM

Geez, lady, it is official that I need to steal some clothes from you. I love the Arden B. leather jacket. I have been looking for a fitted brown leather jacket for months now. Yours is perfect. And I am super drawn to animal prints right now (though own nothing in them...how sad, right?) and love love love your Betsey jacket.
I feel like I need to do some serious shopping before showing off my weekly wears. Please don't stop doing this segment...I've gotta get myself organized and contribute!!
Keep rockin' those looks! This was my favorite week so far!

lonek8 | 11:04 AM

the whole outfit with that Ellington bag and the patterned coat has me DYING from love! Also, the denim military jacket is gorgeous.

here are my efforts this week:



but don't pick me - I don't want to use up all my luck until I get a chance for that Mia bag!!

L.A. Stylist Mom | 11:04 AM

You? Stupid cute. x

Katherine | 11:34 AM

Love every outfit this week. Great! My little one has the boots. Would love to match him..in an adult kind of way :)
Here are my two efforts this week:



thanks again!!

EazilyAmuzed | 11:38 AM

Seriously Stylin' Mama!! Do you live in LA? XOXO Kelley

Veronica | 12:17 PM

Not as cute as anything you do, but I kinda like it :)


Anonymous | 12:18 PM

I'm curious. Are you continually mixing and matching, like do you wear a lot of "never worn before" combinations? Or do you find a combination and kind of go with it for a while? And then how long is that while? My take is that you seem continually creative, even though your closet may have particular items that have been around for a while. Love the outfits and ideas!! -- Maya


First of all - whoa, you guys are awesome. Thank you and can't wait to see what you're all wearing today! FUN!

THE MOMMY - Red lipstick is "delilah" from Stila.

Anonymous - I'm 5'8, 140 pounds.

Yes, Easily Amused, I live in LA. And thank you!

Maya - Always mix and match - the stuff in this is mainly old stuff from ten years ago, five years ago? I try to mix it up every day if possible. Only shop sporadically - the denim military jacket I hadn't worn in years until last week. Betsey coat, too.

Thank you all for kind words and keep your looks coming!

agirlandaboy | 12:46 PM

You're stinkin' cute. I still want to be you when I grow up. Er...grow younger.

Becka @ Life as an Artistpreneur | 1:24 PM

LOVE LOVE LOVE the outfit with your dad's vest. That's totally something I'd wear. :)

Elizabeth at Law Mama | 1:53 PM

Ooh, I've been coveting a pair of Minnetonka's for a while.

I'm trying heels today...


Also, we're totally the same size - I too am 5'8" ~140 (more like 135 due to breastfeeding weight loss).

Rebecca | 1:58 PM

LOVING Good Wear Days! My digital camera isn't working (poo) but I will be participating as soon as I have a functional one.

Autumn | 3:42 PM

I'm picky and I picky those moccasins.


Cynthia | 5:11 PM

The reason I love these posts is because I get to see you and other people mixing in ways that wouldn't occur to me. LOVE the military denim jacket, but I especially love the way you paired it monochromatically with the blue dress. I hope you keep doing these even when there are no give-aways because we have totally been pulled out of our shells and inspired to be creative. At least I have.

Alex | 5:14 PM

Ahhh!!!!!!! Could I love that Betsy Johnson coat anymore? I scooted my little fingers right up to the address bar and typed in EBAY...wonder if anyone is selling it. I love it!

jenny | 7:13 PM


Peach | 7:15 PM

I have wanted some Minnetonka shoes for over a year now!


erin / dfm | 8:54 PM

This Must be the Place . . . | 3:40 AM

Okay, so you can't see much of the dress, but I finally, finally got my hair done . . . and that is my most fashionable accessory today.


thesecretsavant | 4:54 AM

I love these posts and hope you keep them up.

Here is one of my favorite fall outfits (picutre #2) to wear. The boots are so fantastic, even more so because I got them for $15 on clearance!


thesecretsavant | 4:55 AM


Picture #2 on this post is my favorite fall outfit made even better by the fact that I got the boots for $15 on clearance!

One of these days I'm going to get Zinashi to stand next to me so you can see her whole outfit. Today she was wearing a stripey dress she picked out herself, but you can't see it in the photo. Bummer!

jkm | 9:06 PM

sigh. i wish i could look that cute! my student budget does allow for that much cuteness

Melissa | 11:48 PM

Friday's look:


one of those skirts thats a dress thats a skirt type things paired with some cheapo socks from target. It was almost like wearing jammies to work.

Melissa | 11:51 PM

Tuesday's look:


what you can't see from this terrible picture is my default leopard print flats. This outfit was thrown together without any thought and actually turned out to be way cuter than I anticipated.

black leggings, gray dress, black sweater thrown on top.

lola + oliver | 6:44 AM

Rebecca, you are a marvelous woman. Thanks for being you.

My fave outfit ever:


sara | 7:10 AM

Love the Minnetonkas. I want them. A picture of me in India travel garb - Lululemon white headband, NY&C black cami, some kind of knee length skirt on bottom which you can't see, black Chaco sandals, and a cheap cotton bag for holding my stuff.
