Instagram Roundup // What I Wore This Week 10.29.16

Hello, friends. Happy Saturday! Guess who woke up with a headcold? Bah humbug. It’s more like a throat and chest thing, actually. Whatever it is, I can feel something coming on, and it doesn’t help that it’s 33 degrees outside. No joke.

I decided to skip my 5K that I’d scheduled for this morning. I was on the fence about it anyway, and running in cold air always activates my asthma so I’m afraid running a race when I’m pushing myself will seal my fate and make this a full-blown thing. If I take care of myself, maybe I can ward it off. I’ll be staying warm and drinking Emergen-C all day! What do you do to fight a cold?

Well, it’s Saturday and that means time for another Instagram Roundup!


This post is a mixture of what I actually wore this week and some other random photos I posted to Instagram because I was sharing sale alerts and blog posts.

This cowl neck tunic is my new favorite. I literally wore it 3x last week. *Insert one of those cute monkey emoticons with his hands over his face.* I wore it the way I showed on the blog yesterday to go to dinner with the family last weekend, and then I threw it on as shown below with my black ripped jeans and burgundy suede flats one day working at home and driving the mom taxi. Another day (not pictured) I threw it on with my ripped blue jeans and leopard ballet flats. It’s so versatile. LOFT still has 50% off all their sweaters, bringing this tunic down to $29! It has such a soft feel to it and looks much more expensive than it is.

I wore this mock neck sheath dress to an event in South Carolina a few weeks ago. It’s such a versatile dress for warmer fall weather, and it’s on sale for $81. I can even see wearing this at holiday time with a leather jacket or some type of wrap over the shoulders.

I love a leather jacket for fall, and this plum color is unexpected but still highly versatile. This jacket came in my first ever Trunk Club last spring, and it was love at first sight. This one is similar and on sale.

This orange v-neck sweater is so soft and cozy and it comes in a bunch of different colors. It’s huge so if you order one, size down. It’s marked down to $34.99 and then 35% off with code GREAT (40% off with a GapCard.) I paired it with ripped jeans and rain boots for a rainy Saturday. This is another sweater I tend to reach for almost daily. It feels so good on.

I debuted my new OTK Boots with this geo print sheath dress last Sunday. I was afraid I looked a little too “Pretty Woman” circa 1990 but my friends assured me that I looked classy and on trend. I hope they’re right!

Speaking of LOFT and 50% off sweaters, this Side Tie Poncho is one of my faves and it’s still available. It also comes in black.

I updated my post on how to wear ankle boots and this is my favorite way to style this look — skinny jeans with a single cuff and a neutral bootie.

And here we are with another variation on my fall mom uniform — skinny jeans, ballet flats, and a cute sweater. This pink Gap sweater is another favorite, and it’s also marked down to $34.99 and then 35% off with code GREAT (40% off with a GapCard.) This one is more TTS – I am wearing a medium. This pink color is so pretty paired with both blue jeans and grey. I was also thinking of trying it with my white jeans and grey booties.

And finally, this is what I wore to my daughter’s Halloween party yesterday. This sweater is sold out except for the charcoal, and you definitely want to size down. It’s very large, but it has a great feel to it and the cocoon style is flattering.

And that’s a wrap! I’m off to nurse my cold and maybe shoot an outfit or two this morning before I start the mom shuttle. Both kids have a full day of activities, so I’ll be busy carting them around. It’s a busy season of life, but I’m thankful for the glory of the ordinary. I’m grateful to know where my kids are sleeping at night, who their friends are, and what they’re doing at almost any given time. I know I won’t have that peace of mind forever, but for now, I’ll happily take it and all of the responsibilities that come along with it.
