What Whitney Wore Wednesday...and I Need Your Help!

Hey Guys!

Last week, in an effort to encourage myself to dress like an adult, I decided to document my outfits. The plan was to take a picture everyday and feature it today in a What Whitney Wore post. Happens that it's Wednesday. What can I say? I have a thing for alliteration. Its fun.

Ok Monday.

Guys! Look! Its the blogger bun. Couldn't resist. Ok that dress is from my mom and she got it at SAMS CLUB?!?! I LOVE IT. Its got long sleeves which you can't see under my jacket, but I'm thinking with tights and boots this can easily be a fall outfit too. The denim jacket is Express circa 1999...I keep stuff forever. The purse is Loeffler Randall for Target. Sandals, and earrings are Target too. Love me some Target.


I got bored Monday night and decided to straighten my hair. Hadn't done that...since my friends wedding in April. That shirt is Express, it's got a cute racer back. Those jeans are Gap, bought on sale on impulse. They fit terribly, but I'm ballin' on a budget. Shoes and cross body bag are Target.


It was Boomer's first day and MY old school, so I felt the need to be a little dressy...I dunno...I guess I thought it would make me look like a more 'with it' mom. Dress and bag are both Target. I'm sensing a theme. Those shoes are Nine West and they are the most impractical, sparkly, ridiculous shoes. I don't care. I look at my feet when I wear them, and I'm happy all day.


I read a post awhile back from Megan about how she was loving high pony tails. I don't have enough time in the day to get ALL my hair into a high pony, but I figured I could do half. Then my work wife told me I looked like Jasmine, from Aladdin, when she's all done up as Jaffar's slave. Awesome. The skirt is another gift from mom; not sure where from. Wife beater is from Express, and the woven shirt is from Old Navy. I really like this skirt guys, I love the color and its so comfy, but both times I've worn it, its come off less trendy, more sister wife.



I wore a Ohio State University shirt and jeans because football season starts soon. I didn't take a picture because it was hard enough convincing Boomer to do it the other four days of the week, why waste it on a tee shirt and jeans. Seriously. Do you know how much candy/TV bribing it took to get those FOUR photos?


I need your blogger help! I ombred (is that a word?) my hair earlier this spring. There was so much bleach. Oh the humanity! I've been babying it and doing minimal heat styling but the ends are FRIED. I really don't want to lose a lot of length, and I know I need a trim. Any holy grail products to help salvage my hairs ya'll? I was all ready to chop it off for something different, but then I straightened it and kind of fell in love again. Seriously. Thanks to being a card carrying member of the itty bitty tittie committee I could wear my hair as a shirt. This is a skill that cannot be lost due to bleach.

That's all she wrote!

Sams club has surprised me before, too! I love finding cute clothes in random places like that.

Also, about the hair thing -- I've been there! Minimal heat styling is important, but also alcohol free leave-in conditioner does wonders for me! I use a brand called Mixed Chicks. Also, there's another brand I like (a little pricier) called Pureology and they're green bottle of leave-in conditioner is specifically for dyed hair. I love both of these products and it really helps keep the moisture in dyed hair for me!

Also, I'm your 100th Bloglovin' follower. Yay! Looking forward to more posts!

Hey girl! Just wondering if you are still wanting to be apart of the fantasy football league? I've sent out an email to you for the ESPN link. If you don't want to be apart of the league anymore, let me know ASAP so I can find someone to take your place! Thanks!

Cute outfits!! My mom was wearing a really cute pair of shoes yesterday and I asked where she got them and she said Sam's! I was shocked! Who knew?!

I love the outfits!! Maybe you can help me with this whole 'dressing like an adult' thing, because I just can't get it together haha.

As for the hair situation - I'll be checking back for people's comments because I need some suggestions for products to help my ends too!!!

Miss Boom,
You are making progress on the clothes front but you know how I feel about work clothes.. You need to look for sales at The Loft.

Check out to see where my style is headed. You will see me in something from here in the future...

On the hair front, you need to get a trim of 1-2 inches and deep condition your hair every 2 weeks - go to Sally's and get those plastic caps. Do you have a hood dryer? That's even better deep conditioning tool.

Try Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque

Also I like homemade deep conditioner. One I use is 1/3 cup mayonnaise (has to be real mayonnaise - no Miracle Whip) you will need a cup probably. 2T (I would do 4T with a cup of mayo) olive oil and 5 drops of tea tree oil. Optional: add 1 whole egg. Mix together and put on dry hair, then put on a plastic cap and leave on for 1 hour and then rinse out well with cool water and then wash/condition as normal.

Peace out!
