True confession: I always feel like these posts are soooo boring, and especially now that autumn weather is here to stay. I just want to live in pullover sweaters and blue jeans all fall and winter.
But this feature is supposed to be real life, so here it is . . . what I really wore over the past couple of weeks.
This first look was a weekday, and I think I spent most of it at home. I don’t usually wash my hair and do makeup when I’m just at home all day, but every once in a while, I get motivated. (I probably ran that morning.)
I realize this outfit is super simple, and but there’s something about the combination of the rust sweater with light wash jeans and camel suede shoes that is really pleasing to the eye. FYI, these Tory Burch suede flats are 20% off at Bloomingdale’s!
SALE ALERT >> Take 20% off $100-$249, 25% off $250-$499 or 30% off $500 or more on items labeled “TAKE UP TO 30% OFF WITH CODE: SAVEMORE” at Bloomingdale’s.
As I said . . . a pullover and jeans is my jam. I wore this next outfit to the dentist on a chilly, rainy Wednesday.
Both the rust sweater above, and this navy hooded sweater were #NSale purchases and are no longer available, so I linked similar styles.
I wore this next look to Bible study on a Thursday and then to the nail salon afterwards. I remember specifically trying NOT to reach for another sweater. 😂
This Free People snap sleeve tee is perfect for this time of year, and I was really proud of myself for jazzing it up with this statement necklace. It’s always my natural inclination to go with more subtle jewelry, but in this case, I think this necklace really makes the outfit. Well, that and the python print boots.
This next look is one I actually wore two days in a row — the Friday and Saturday we were in Wilmington for a family wedding. (That seems like a month ago, but I guess it was only a week and a half!)
I brought a graphic tee to wear home on Saturday, but I ended up just putting this same outfit back on again because they hosted a nice breakfast that morning and I wanted to look a bit nicer than a t-shirt.
(And I really needed to clean my iPhone camera lenses.)
And of course, this is what I wore to the wedding.
The next day was Sunday, and I wore this to church.
That night, I changed shoes to go over to a friend’s house for a small birthday celebration . . . and evidently I also cleaned my camera that afternoon. I really need to start checking that before I take my daily selfie!
cardigan: Madewell // tank: Ann Taylor // raw hem skinnies: Rag & Bone (similar for less) // booties: Vince Camuto // suede ballet flats: Tory Burch (on sale!) // layer necklace: Gorjana // earrings: Lucky Brand
So I guess that brings us to last Monday. I must have thrown this on after a photo shoot (judging by the curled hair.)
I actually didn’t keep these jeans, only because I don’t really need them. They’re really good if you want an off-black pair that isn’t as pricey as most premium denim brands.
And then on Tuesday, and I just threw my hair up in a pinch clip after my run. I did shower and put on makeup, though, so there’s that.
Wednesday was an ugly, rainy day, and as I recall I didn’t go anywhere or take any pictures.
This is what I wore to Bible study and to meet a friend for lunch last Thursday. Rust and grey is a fun and unexpected pairing, and the snake print mules add an element of interest.
And Friday was another “grace day.”
On Saturday, I went for a walk/run with the dog and then got dressed in this tried and true outfit to go shopping with my daughters.
And that night, I went out with some girlfriends for dinner. We actually took a proper picture outside for once . . .
Do we like this sweater better front-tucked or untucked?
I feel like the front-tuck is more modern, but the length is perfect so that it doesn’t really need it for me to look balanced.
Also, these boots are GORGEOUS. They’re lined with a suede-like material inside, and they are super comfortable to walk in. They’re 20% off but only larger sizes are left in this color. They also come in a buttery black leather.
Sunday was church, and it was cooler and rainy. I wore a very similar outfit, but this sweater is more casual (and suuuper cozy.) It’s yet another Vince purchase from the #NSale. 🙈
I realized, as I was looking through these pictures, that it’s mid-October, and it has just now gotten cold enough to start wearing all the cozy sweaters that have been sitting in my closet since July. I really wish they would run that sale the first week of September!
Unfortunately most of what I purchased has sold out, but they will be on repeat all winter long. I’ll try to link some similar (and similar for less) styles when I wear them.
This sweater is more grey than ivory, so I paired it with black jeans and added the snake print mules for pattern and texture. Plus it was rainy, and I realized that I have very few shoes that aren’t suede . . . I guess I need to remedy that!
I didn’t feel like doing my hair again, so I stuck it in a ponytail with this tortoiseshell hair cuff. Sorry, this picture doesn’t QUITE capture it, but it’s a nice way to elevate a basic ponytail.
I dressed cute on Monday to go out to lunch with a friend after my photo shoot, but I’m saving those pictures for tomorrow’s post. And then yesterday was rainy, and I didn’t go anywhere after my workout, so I don’t have any pictures. You can thank me later.
So I guess that’s a wrap! But seriously, I feel like these posts are going to get reeeeally mundane over the next few months. Even when I go to church or out for dinner, I end up wearing a dressier version of my daily uniform.
I’m totally fine with that, but maybe I should make this a monthly feature and pick and choose my favorites, or outfits where mostly everything is in stock. Let me know what you think.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
