Happy Saturday, friends. I hope everyone is faring okay. We’ve been having some crazy weather, but so far there isn’t a lot of damage, thank goodness! I know not everyone can say that right now.
Before we get to the Instagram Roundup, I just want to let y’all know that the next Adore Your Wardrobe course will begin on 5/24.
This course has made such a difference in how I shop and dress my body. Those of you who have been around for a while have heard me talk about this before. If you’ve already taken the course, feel free to chime in down in the comment section and let us all know how you liked it.
For anyone wondering, Adore Your Wardrobe is a course that basically teaches you how to dress your unique body in the most flattering way. You will start by determining your body type, and then you will learn what styles and colors look best on you and how to put together outfits to create proper balance and proportion. I cannot recommend this course highly enough. There is also a Facebook Group for each class where Kelly and her team offers you personal advice to make sure you understand the course material and stay on track. It is truly excellent.
Registration for the next course opens on 5/14, so if you want to save up or send some Mother’s Day hints, I wanted to let you know that it’s coming up soon! (Here’s a link to buying an AYW Gift Card if you’d like to gift someone with this course.) It is $149, and that includes access to the Facebook group and personal guidance from Kelly and her team.
Kelly is also doing another closet challenge, and that actually started yesterday, but you can still join and catch up. The closet challenge is FREE, and it gives you a good idea of how Kelly works and how amazing she is. It also helps prepare you for the class, should you decide to register.
So for today’s post, I put together an Instagram Roundup with my latest posts from IG all in one place! It’s only been a couple of weeks since my last one, but for some reason I seem to have a lot of pictures!
This first picture harkens back to the rewardStyle conference I attended a few weeks ago. I wore this outfit to the Topshop sponsored garden lunch. I think this top could use a long necklace or something to break up the expanse of floral, but I felt cute wearing it. It has nice movement that is hard to see in a still shot like this one.
This saddle bag has said “1 left” for months — has anyone ordered this thing yet? LOL! It’s such a cutie. I am truly curious if the “1 left” thing is just a gimmick to create a false sense of urgency.
I wore this to the black tie optional party on the last night of the conference.
This is an outfit I wore to a dinner with friends last weekend. I’m also realizing I didn’t include these white jeans in my white jeans review yesterday. Ooops! They are super cute for a distressed style.
I got to meet a sweet blog reader this week. Kay Harms is a writer and speaker, and she was in town for a conference, and we met up for coffee. So fun! This is what I wore.
This was a casual day at home last week. I forget where I went, but I clearly had washed my hair and grabbed a handbag, so I must have gone somewhere, lol. The days all start to run together.
I wore this to the mall to try on white jeans for my review I posted yesterday. I wanted jeans and shoes that I could slip off and on easily, and I’m always a sucker for a dolman top. These Farrah high rise jeans are perfect jeans for tall girls — I had mine shortened — and they’re 30% off right now. There are more sizes at Macy’s.
For some reason, these pictures are all out of order, and I’m too lazy to fix them. This was my travel outfit to and from the rewardStyle conference. I love, love, love this cardigan. I’m sure you’re all sick of seeing it, but it’s so nice for travel. The Neverfull was my Christmas gift from my sweet husband. I said I would love to have one, but I never imagined he’d actually spring for it!
And this picture reminds me, I still haven’t called about getting the leather trim pieces on my suitcase replaced. I need to get on that because I’m actually traveling again in two weeks. I know, I said I was at home for a while, but something came up. I can’t wait to share more!!!
Another dolman top, ironically also from Stitch Fix, but last year. I should have taken a few minutes to steam those wrinkles out of the front. I don’t remember where I wore this, but it was obviously a rainy day. FYI, these Hunter boots in graphite are still on sale.
Alex and Ani sent me their Living Water Charm Bangle. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these bangles goes Living Water International, an organization that helps bring clean water to communities in need around the world. I always like to support companies that give back, so I wanted to share this initiative with you. The other bracelet I’m wearing is their Arrow Wrap.
This was just another easy outfit I threw on to run errands this week. This ruffle sleeve tee is marked down to $20 but the red is almost gone. It is juniors sizing, so I actually have the large.
Another rainy day… This sweater is sold out, but it sure has come in handy this spring with all of the cool days we’ve had.
I wore this to get my hair cut. I don’t usually dress up this much to get my hair cut, but it was one of the few really pretty days that we’ve had, and I wanted a chance to wear these shoes.
This Lucky Brand ivory layered sweater is so cute for spring. I also love the layer necklace. You can see more of this outfit in this post.
A casual weekend outfit — I wore this last Friday night to take my daughter to a movie night at her school. It was a zoo, so we left early and came home and hung out on the deck. It was actually quite warm that night… what a difference a week makes!
Oooooh, another throwback to two weeks ago at the rewardStyle conference. I wore this sheath for the cocktail party on Friday night. We only stayed for an hour, then we changed into jeans and went out for Mexican. LOL! But it was fun to dress up, walk the yellow carpet, sip champagne, and feel fancy. (I have no idea why the carpet is yellow nor why only one set of lights behind me is lit. Things that make you go hmmmm….)
Yet another casual weekend outfit… you saw this picture earlier this week, but I posted it to Instagram as well as on my blog. See more of this outfit in this post.
This is me trying to be cool with the half-tuck. I don’t really get it, but in a weird way, it is kind of flattering (except that I needed to iron my shirt…) I let it air dry so it wouldn’t shrink, and now I need to iron it. Seems crazy to iron a flannel, but whatever!
I wore this yesterday. After a few really pretty days, we had a day of rain, and while it wasn’t cold out, rain makes me feel like being cozy so I grabbed this lightweight flannel plaid that came in a recent Stitch Fix.
So that’s a wrap. As I scroll thru this post, all I can think is, I sure do wear jeans a lot! LOL! I feel like I should apologize for not having more variety to show you, but honestly, on a day to day basis, jeans just make the most sense for my lifestyle. I find them far more comfortable than khakis or dresses, and while I like a good bootcut, they are usually a going-out look for me because I wear mine with heels.
I will try to show some other styles on the blog, and as it gets warmer, I’ll be wearing dresses and shorts more. I really want to find some cute, casual dresses that I’m comfortable in. I like the look on everyone else. I guess that should be my next project!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
