Coffee Talk + What I Wore

Greetings, friends! I hope this weekend is treating you well. We’ve had a really fun time with family this week, despite a few hiccups along the way.

My daughter is loving the middle school marching band, and she has one more week of band camp this week, which she’s looking forward to. She was so nervous last week, so it’s good to see her settling in. She also has her middle school orientation this week, where she gets to find her locker and learn her class schedule. Then on Friday, we move my son into his dorm at college! Suffice it to say, it’s a fairly big week for the Shane kids, and I’m preparing myself by stocking up on Kleenex.

I thought I’d share what I wore this week since I didn’t get to do that yesterday, and I also wanted to let you know that Kelly Snyder of Adore Your Wardrobe fame is starting a new From Frustration to Functional Closet Challenge this month.

Registration for From Frustration to Functional is OPEN!

I’ve talked about this before, but if you’re not familiar or need a refresher, this 14-day course unpacks all of the reasons behind why women are frustrated with their wardrobes, and it’s a great way to prepare for the next Adore Your Wardrobe course, should you decide to sign up for the September session.

Adore Your Wardrobe is a paid course, but From Frustration to Functional is completely free, and it’s a brilliant program. It really gets underneath the surface to the whys of our wardrobe frustrations AND how to start fixing them. Registration is open now through midnight on Friday, August 24th.

It’s a great time to start working on your closet so it will be all fresh and ready for fall!

Meanwhile, here is what I wore this week. I didn’t capture many looks, I actually lived in the same denim shorts and t-shirt most of the week, and my room was torn up for a few days I couldn’t get my mirror selfies, but here’s what I’ve got.

What I Wore This Week

I wore this first outfit to church last Sunday. The top is new, and it’s a bit of a splurge, but it’s also 40% off. I ordered it online, and honestly, I expected the material to be a little bit dressier for the price — I was envisioning more of a silky material, but it’s 100% rayon. Still, it’s really pretty, and I got a lot of compliments on it. I like how it has some shape through the waist without being clingy. I sized up to a medium for a little extra wiggle room, and also in case it shrinks.

And again, these shoes are spendy but on a really good sale, and they even restocked a few sizes. They also have a few other colors and sizes at


I wore this one day this week to run some errands. Nothing new, but I love these pink denim shorts for something a little bit different. For size reference, I’m wearing the 29. Also, these Caslon boyfriend shorts come in the same color, for a non-denim option.

And this white v-neck tee has become my go-to this summer. I sized up to a medium in this as well.


I didn’t wear this this week, but I wanted to share it because this blouse is on sale and fully stocked. I think it’s such a great piece to dress up or down as shown here. I have a small in this top, for reference. I’m also wearing a white cami underneath because it’s sheer.


And finally, I wore this on Friday when we were hosting a family get together, and you can see my newly painted bedroom in this picture! We went with the same Edgecomb Gray / Dove White combo that we’ve used throughout most of the house. I like how it provides a cooler backdrop for my outfit photos.

I also moved my mirror to the far corner of the room, but I actually think I liked the other background better so I don’t know if it will stay here or not. I have a lot more I want to do to the room, but I’m trying to take things one step at a time.

I picked up this twist sleeve top on sale at Loft, and once again, I’m wearing a medium. It’s a little big, but I know it will shrink, and the small was definitely too small. My favorite white shorts are old and almost sold out, but they’re on a great sale if your size is in stock. Plus I linked up some other alternatives below.


I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!
