Mom Style | What I Wore This Week 04.18.12
For more outfit inspiration, check out all of my Mom Style posts.
I’m not sure I should even use the title Mom Style on this post. It is slim pickin’s this week, folks. My knee is still incredibly painful to the touch, so I have to wear clothes that don’t put pressure on it — namely shorts and skirts. Unfortunately my selection of shorts and skirts is rather limited. So. This is What I Wore This Week, but it’s sorely lacking in the Style department. You’ve been warned.
It was cooler towards the beginning of the week, so the best I could do was my yoga pants. I KNOW. But they are actually really nice Organic Cotton Salamba Pants from Athleta. Does that make a difference?
I tried to dress them up a bit with a striped tank and my favorite pink hooded zip-up cardi. That was also the day I got my hair cut and colored, which is why it looks so sleek. I wish I could achieve that at home! My Privos were my attempt to not wear sneakers or flip-flops. I suppose for a day working from home and going to the salon, it’s not too bad.
Okay, this is so not working for me. The gray drapey sweater that I like with this striped top was at the dry cleaners, so I pulled out this lighter one. Same yoga pants, same shoes, and same Grace Tags necklace. Hey, at least I did my hair and makeup!
Which is more than I can say for Friday. Just keeping it real, people.
At least it was warmer so I could give the yoga pants a break!
I tried a little harder on Saturday because I had to run some errands and go to my son’s ball game.
Same shorts and same rubber flip-flops, but I tried to dress it up with a nicer top and my coral handbag and my new Silpada bracelet. It could have used a necklace, though.
I wore this to church on Sunday. This skirt is as old as the hills, but I still find myself wearing it often during the summer months. It’s my one piece from Boden.
The red top is another oldie but goodie – from Banana. And even though it’s a little early, I brought out my favorite espadrille wedge sandals.
On Monday it was EIGHTY-EIGHT degrees here in Philly. Yowsahs! This pink Scoop Twist Front Tank is from Old Navy. I stocked up on casual summer tops when they were having a sale a few weeks ago. I wore my Encircled Earrings and Necklace from Studio Jewel and my new Silpada bracelet, and I threw on my blue flip flops for some color contrast.
And finally, Tuesday the weather cooled down a bit to a nice, balmy 75 degrees with a lovely breeze. HEAVEN!
Tired of wearing the same shorts, I dug this denim skirt out of the back of my closet. I had to take my daughter to the dentist and run some errands so I tried to turn the style quotient up a notch. If not exactly high fashion, at least I looked more presentable than earlier in the week!
The butter yellow tee is another from my Old Navy stash, and I like how the bronze ballet flats pulled from the bronze chain in my Studio Jewel necklace. The handbag is an old favorite by Orla Kiely, and I finally got a close-up of this new Silpada bracelet I keep talking about!
I love it. It goes with absolutely everything.
And that’s about it. Hoping to get back into some of my colored jeans this week. I miss them!!
