Mom Fashion | What I Wore This Week 12.21.11

This week is all about neutrals! You wanna know why? I got myself a Christmassy red manicure last weekend, and now I feel like everything I own clashes with it. So be prepared to be wowed by GRAY!!! I know, I’m such a plain jane. So let’s get this over-with already.

I have no idea where I wore this. I can’t remember, how pathetic is that? Anyway, this dolman-sleeve sweater was an impulse buy at Nordstrom Rack last fall when I went shopping with a gift certificate they sent me. I haven’t been back since, but I really should go at least once a month and see what they have. It’s a great place to go when you don’t have anything specific in mind and you want to find a good deal. The cropped cords you’ve seen eleventy-trillion times, and I wore these black patent ballet flats (from Nine West, like 2 years ago.) The handbag is another oldie-but-goodie, my first Orla Kiely. I still love it. Chunky hoops, a long chain necklace, a beaded bracelet, and a watch with red band complete the look.

Oh I remember now! I wore this to church (like two weeks ago – I guess I forgot to post it last week?) And also, sometime after I took this photo, I ditched the necklace and wore a plum scarf instead. I thought the outfit needed color. So there. Mystery solved.

Okay so this? I wore to a casual family Christmas party at a friend’s house. You’ve seen the sweater, but I paired it with jeans instead of the gray cords this time.

This is what I wore to the Christmas Tree Farm. I love this white puffy coat and gray faux fur lined hood that I picked up on sale at Nordstrom a few years back. I wore a gray turtleneck sweater (a different one from the one above.) I’m beginning to think I might have a slight surplus of gray in my wardrobe . . . WHAT? Shaddup!

Aaaaaand I wore the same skinny jeans tucked into the same gray boots. Okay, well. I’m nothing if not predictable!

And finally, DATE NIGHT! My husband and I hired a sitter and spent the evening at the mall eating dinner and Christmas shopping, followed by a spontaneous trip to the grocery store to stock up before the holidays. The man knows how to romance me, eh!? No, seriously, this was my request.

I was determined NOT to wear gray so I went with black instead. Bwahaha. No, really, I was determined to wear something with color so I went for this teal ruffle-neck top with the tan cords. I like to wear my brown suede boots with this outfit, but it was raining so I grabbed my trusty Dansko Brinkley boots that I got for review last winter and topped the outfit off with a cozy black hooded cardi.

I couldn’t decide which picture to post so I used all 3! I did add earrings before going out for the evening, not sure why I forgot them when I put on my necklace and bracelet.

And that’s a wrap. As usual, I’m linking up with the What I Wore Wednesday and Monday Mingle blog carnivals.
