Mom Style | What I Wore This Week 05.23.12
This week has been a whirlwind! I’ve hardly been home. Here’s what I’ve been wearing.
I love this stripey top from Old Navy, and I threw it on last week with skinny jeans to wear working from home and running errands. I felt like it needed some color, so I dug out my orange ballet flats and my favorite Orla Kiely printed handbag.
Thursday was nice and warm for a change. I decided to go for shorts and another casual top from Old Navy. I’m liking these elastic-waisted tops. They aren’t as figure-hugging as the tops I normally wear and much more forgiving when I’ve had one too many snickerdoodles.
Friday night I went out to dinner and then to a blogging event. I knew I’d be doing a lot of walking, so I went for black patent pointy-toe flats, skinny jeans, and a black top. I dressed it up with this necklace from Studio Jewel — L.O.V.E. You can’t see very well, but the sleeves have slits on the shoulders, it’s a cute top. Wish I’d thought to bring a colorful handbag or something else to liven it up, but I guess it worked out alright.
Saturday was Bloggy Bootcamp. I broke out my red skinny jeans (DL 1961 Emma Legging in Tabasco) and a black and white top (Banana). I forgot to ask someone to take my photo so this is the best I could do in the bathroom mirror!
Sunday was church. I got my husband to snap this picture when we got home. The white eyelet skirt and red top are from Banana Republic (years ago) with a jean jacket from CAbi and snakeskin espadrilles (by Coach from Bloomingdales ON SALE — I picked them up on sale a couple years ago. I like the contrast between the edginess of the denim and the femininity of the white eyelet. I accessorized with my big silver circle necklace from Studio Jewel and a Lagos silver bracelet and a white Michele watch (similar). The red bag is by Hobo Int’l (similar).
Sunday evening we went out to dinner, and I changed into white jeans and this black and white CAbi top. Same red purse as above, and I wore my black sandals with the wooden wedge platform sole from Boutique Nine — another Boomingdales sale purchase years ago. These Bardough High Wedge Espadrilles are sorta similar, but not really, lol. Mine have a wood sole that I love.
I wore this outfit to meet a friend for lunch — green skinny jeans with a taupe tunic and a black tank. In retrospect, I’m not crazy about the tunic with the jeans, but I do like the way the snakeskin espadrilles worked with the taupe tunic. Necklace and earrings by Studio Jewel.
And that’s what I’ve got for this week!
