Daily Mom Style 02.20.13

This time of year really puts me in a funk. Anyone else? I am trying SO HARD to get myself dressed and fixed up every day. It do feel SO much better on the days that I make the effort. But honestly? I would be content to live in yoga pants and slippers till May. This is this week’s attempt at staying fabulous after 40.

day 1

I wanted to wear something besides blue jeans so I pulled on my green skinnies. I know some girls can pull off some really crazy color combos but I’m more comfortable pairing a bright pair of pants with a neutral on top. I wore my black velvet trim merino cardigan over a gray tank and then topped it off with a scarf. The weather was mild for a change, so I wore black ballet flats instead of boots, and I carried this gray satchel that I love and rarely carry. All that to take my daughter to the dentist. LOL!!

day 2

This seemed appropriate for Valentine’s Day! I went back to a tried-and-true outfit: my red hooded zip-cardi over a black tank with skinny jeans and UGGs.

day 3

On Friday I hosted a demo for my client at a local grocery store. I wanted to be professional but comfortable so I went for this V-neck magenta sweater with dark wash jeans and ballet flats (Aldo). The necklace is Stella & Dot .

That night we went out to dinner for Valentine’s Day, and I took the opportunity to wear my favorite dress. I just love the colors and the print, and it’s quite forgiving when you’ve indulged a bit too much on holiday candy.

I didn’t bother with a necklace; I figured there was enough going on with the print. But I doubled up on my bracelets and wore a pair of bold silver earrings.

I have no qualms saying that I spent Saturday in yoga pants and fleece. It was a cold, gray day that I spent at home tackling the laundry and catching up on work.I might have even snuck in a nap.

day 4

I wore this outfit to church on Sunday. I usually wear this poncho with red pants and a black shirt, but I wanted to try something different so I put it with a red t-shirt and black leggings. I also dug out these flat boots from the back of my closet. I just wasn’t in the mood for a heel and it was too cold to even think about ballet flats.

day 5

I have to keep reminding myself to not apologize for repeating outfits! This purple sweater is so easy to wear that I threw it on again on Monday — this time with more casual jeans, UGGs and a scarf. I only post it twice in one week to show you how I styled it differently both times.

This time of year these posts start to feel incredibly redundant. I am so ready for springtime!!!
