My Daily Looks: What I Wore
I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I’ve done one of these! Actually, I can when I look at how many pictures are in this post. Anyway, this is a roundup of my daily outfits from the past couple of weeks.
I wore this first outfit to host friends in the backyard one night. This tee was a Christmas gift from one of my good friends, and it cracks me up every time I wear it. She found it on Amazon, and I’m wearing the medium.
This is what I wore to Back to School Night at the middle school, and it was still August so the look is rather summery. I wanted to look polished, but I needed to be able to do a lot of walking.
This blouse has been getting a lot of airtime lately because it looks good with white, black, or denim bottoms.
I wore a simple tee and jean shorts to run errands and to host a cookout on Labor Day weekend.

This was my Sunday church outfit on Labor Day weekend. I was on nursery duty (thus the jeans), but I still threw on some heels. What can I say, sometimes I feel like being a little extra.
I wore this casual look to host a cookout that night in our backyard. Yes, I hosted two get-togethers that weekend. #overachiever
It was a mild weather day, and I felt like wearing a sweatshirt with shorts so I grabbed this one. (Yes, I know Labor Day is not a patriotic holiday — as someone on Instagram pointed out.) I don’t only wear stars on patriotic occasions. 😉
Now that Labor Day has passed, I’m gravitating to darker colors. I wore this to take my daughter to the ortho, and then we ran over to the mall one day last week.
Yep, another white tee and jeans outfit. I’ve realized recently that I don’t have a lot of casual tops. I put away my summery linen and bright color tops, and I’m left with a bunch of solid tees and pretty floral blouses.
The blouses are nice for dressing up, but for my everyday, I’m looking for a couple graphic tees in darker colors to pair with jeans and layer under cardigans when the weather cools off.
NOTE: I didn’t actually wear these shoes out of the house; I decided I wanted the taupe color (see below) so I posted this to Instagram and then switched into sandals so I could return these.
This next outfit is what I wore to my new Bible study one morning last week, and then I tweaked it that evening to see Hamilton in Philly.
In retrospect, it was a little much for the Bible study with the shimmery top and the black jeans and all. I was running late, so I had to go with it once I got dressed, but I did feel a bit overdressed. I think I’d like this top better with light wash bluejeans for daytime.
For the evening, I just swapped out my tote for a smaller bag and brought along my black leather jacket, but I didn’t end up needing the jacket so I carried it all night.
I hate it when that happens, but I also hate to be cold, so I always err on the side of having an extra layer with me.
Friday was a lazy day, since we had been out so late the night before at Hamilton. I threw on some comfy favorites and pulled my hair back in a pony, and later in the day, I crawled into bed and took a 2-hour nap. I’m not even sure why I put on jewelry… habit, I guess!

I took the girls to the mall on Saturday to shop for wedding guest dresses, and it was a beautiful mild fall day. I put together some of my favorite wardrobe basics with my snake print slip-on sneakers.
Sunday was church, as is our usual, and then we drove down to have lunch with Paul’s parents. They take us out, so I like to look nice, and I was happy to get another wear out of this dress. I fussed a bit with the shoes, and I’ll show you my options.
I wanted to make it more fall, so I first paired it with these peep-toe booties, and this is how I wore it to church.
I realized as I wore it that the dress is a little long for the booties; I’d like it better if some of my leg was showing. I mean, it’s fine, but since we had to stop home before heading down for lunch, I ran upstairs and changed into sandals.
First I tried these block heel sandals in the oatmeal suede, which I like a lot, but they’re 4″ and we like to walk to lunch from my in-laws’ house.
So . . . I ended up in my trusty Weitzmans. These are my go-to when I want walkable heels.
This last look is from Monday night — I hosted a ladies’ event for church. It was warm out, so I leveled up my favorite light wash jeans with this blouse.
The colors are light, but it has the black background, so I feel like it works for this time of year.
And that’s all I’ve got! I didn’t do much with myself yesterday, so I didn’t take a picture.
There’s no doubt about it, this is an awkward time for dressing! Our weather is getting hot again today and through the weekend, and I know a lot of you are in the same boat. I’m tired of my summer clothes, but fall is eluding us at the moment, so I’m going to pick up another casual top or two that I can wear now and layer later.
How do you get through this awkward time in-between seasons??? Do you make do with what you have or pick up a couple of transition pieces to get you through?
