You guys, I’m getting all out of whack with my scheduling. These posts are supposed to go up every other Wednesday, but I’ve been working for hours on a post for today, and it is nowhere near finished.
It’s about what makes a quality garment, and it is going to require more time than I have this morning, and I really want it to be helpful.
So! I am going to drop back and punt… as my mom used to say.
I grabbed these pictures, which I already had edited and uploaded for next Wednesday, and I’m going to share them today. I’ll share the post on quality clothing one day next week.
What I Wore Lately
For anyone new here, I’m 5’5″ and I typically wear a small in tops, 28 or 29 in jeans, and size 8 in dresses. Everything I’m wearing below is a small or size 29 unless otherwise noted. Click on the picture or the link below to see the items I’m wearing.
First up, a look I wore last Thursday to CBS (Community Bible Study)… This is nothing new to the regulars, but it’s proof that fashion bloggers do re-wear clothes!
I still love this sweater and these jeans… the sweater is on sale and available at several retailers. The jeans, unfortunately, sold out, as did the mules, so I linked a similar pair for both of those.
The next day was Friday, and I wore this casual look around the house. I wanted to see how these jeans held up to a few hours of wear, so even though it was chilly for cropped jeans and sneakers, I wore it anyway. (And I did cut off that tag… I am keeping the sweatshirt too!)
All three of these pieces are from Amazon, and I am very pleased with the quality of the sweatshirt and the jeans — for the price, they’re both a very good value.
The sneakers are cute and comfortable, not particularly good quality, but worth the price. I like how lightweight they are, and how much cushion they have around the tongue and the ankle area. If you like the look of Golden Goose and not the price tag, these are an excellent budget-friendly alternative.
This was Saturday, and I got myself all gussied up to go to a ladies’ Bible Study at church, and then it started to snow and I decided to stay put.
I actually wore this for a good part of the day at home — these boots are that comfortable. But eventually I switched to my grey UGG slippers.
And this is what I wore to church on Sunday. It was a coooold day, so I figured knee-high boots over jeans were my best bet, and then I added a cozy sweater on top.
This sweater sold out; it’s the 360Cashmere one that I picked up recently at Nordstrom Rack — I highly recommend checking there when looking for higher end sweaters. You can often find great deals, especially this time of year. I usually search by the brand I’m looking for.
I know, you’ve seen this a gazillion times… but when it’s good, it’s good! On the plus side, all of these items are still fully stocked. I wore this working at home on Monday, after a photo shoot with Alison.
Tuesday was the day I went to get my eyebrows microbladed, and I wore another one of my favorite cozy sweaters, jeans, and booties. It was another frigid day so I wore black socks. (I often get asked what socks I wear with booties in the winter… I went with black because my boots were black.)
And this was me at home on Wednesday… I wore this all day, waiting for my appliances to arrive. I went out for a walk in the afternoon, and it was really nice to be all ready go to!
And finally, this was yesterday. I’ve been wearing this hat because I haven’t washed my hair yet… but, today is the day!
I’m trying to protect my new eyebrows, but I can’t go any longer so I will have to be very careful not to get any shampoo on them.
I went with a 28 in these jeans, by the way! (They were on sale when I got them, so I would not recommend paying full price.)
And that’s a wrap! I hope you all have a fabulous Friday!
