What I Wore This Week

Here we are again! It’s another edition of Daily Mom Style, in which I chronicle my daily outfits in an attempt to stay fabulous after 40 while working from home and driving the mom taxi. Hopefully I can inspire you too!

I love this casual, comfy outfit. The wide stripes are on trend and the loose styling of the top is forgiving when you need a little forgiveness . . . ahem.

Striped Tee with Skinny Jeans and UGGs

This is the outfit I wore on Saturday to my PSMM Workshop. I wanted to look professional but not too fussy so I went with dark skinny jeans, a magenta ribbed sweater and this fitted khaki jacket that’s been hiding in the back of my closet, waiting for springtime! I also pulled out these brown wedge pumps, which are about 10 years old. I don’t wear them often, but sometimes they are exactly what I need.

Sunday was another mild day, and I really wanted to wear this black and white dot blouse. I love black and white with colored denim, but I’m not sure I love it with the cropped jean jacket. Maybe I need a blazer? And the yellow flats . . . are fun for spring but I don’t think they did much for this outfit. Bah.

How to wear Green Jeans

I wore this outfit to have lunch with a friend and then to take some photos for my Sony215 project that I’ll be sharing more about later this week! I wanted to wear the scarf, and I thought it might be fun to try it with gray cords. It was a mild day but I wanted to be sure not to be chilly so I layered this black cardi over a long sleeve white tee. I couldn’t bear to break out the boots so I went with these silver ballet flats — not ideal for walking around town taking photos, but they were alright. I keep saying this, but I really need some “fashion sneakers” for days liks this!

Casual Mom Style

And that’s all I’ve got this week! I spent a couple of days in yoga pants. Sue me.
