My Daily Looks: What I Wore Lately Vol. 5
Every other week on Wednesdays, I share my daily looks, and it’s that time again! We’re still in full-on winter mode here in eastern Pennsylvania, so these outfits are all very cozy.
My Daily Looks: What I Wore Lately
For size reference, I’m 5’5″ and wear a 28 or 29 in jeans and usually a small in tops. I’ve recently lost some weight, and I’m starting to transition to a smaller size in jeans, so if you have any questions about sizing on specific styles, feel free to ask, and I’ll do my best to give you some guidance.
This first look was a lazy day at home, and a friend came over that evening to catch up. I threw on this sweatshirt and my cozy UGG boots, and the hat because 3-day hair. #keepingitreal
This next look is what I wore to the City Winery in Philly to see Phil Philips on a Saturday night. SO. MUCH. FUN.
I have a few different pictures of my outfit… first, this mirror selfie I snapped to make sure I liked the look.
And that’s not a dirty mirror — the sweater is a donegal knit. Mine is the Aqua brand from Bloomies. It’s a couple years old, but their C by Bloomingdale’s cashmere turtleneck currently comes in a black donegal. I recommend sizing up in those. I take a medium.
It was cold out, so I went for a turtleneck and jeans, but I decided to take my chances with bare ankles and a leather jacket. It worked out fine, as we were able to park right near the restaurant, and it was actually quite warm indoors.
You can see my earrings best in this picture — I went with a bold drop earring to add some drama since we were going to a concert.
I also wore a belt for another point of interest.
Before we left, Paul took a quick picture for me outside.
FYI, my Rag & Bone booties are on major sale, and they’re extremely good quality. Definitely a steal! (They’re TTS or size up half if you run in between sizes; I have the 8.5US / 38.5EU.)
When we got downtown, Paul insisted I needed a picture in front of the Fashion District sign. He’s such a goofball.
You may notice I swapped purses… I loved the leopard clutch with this outfit, but I realized I didn’t want to futz with a clutch in a small dinner/music venue, and that turned out to be a wise move.
The crossbody was so much easier to keep track of, and I could be hands-free when I needed to be.
The next day was Sunday, and I wore this casual look to church and then out to lunch. It looks like this sweater finally sold out — I can’t find it anywhere.
I think I stayed in workout gear all day the following Monday. At least, I don’t have any outfit pictures.
I threw on this black turtleneck sweater and jeans for wearing around the house and to run a few errands on Tuesday.
Then I switched into black booties to go to dinner that night. It had been a busy day, and I didn’t have a dinner plan, so Paul offered to take us out.
I think Wednesday was another “grace day,” and then on Thursday I had to get gussied up for a photo shoot.
I stopped into the mall afterwards to do some try-ons, and I snapped a quick picture in the mirror at Nordstrom.
On Saturday, I took Caroline car shopping, and then we ran a few random errands. I threw on this comfy sweater and jeans combo.
You’ve seen this sweater a gazillion times, but the jeans are a newer purchase. These are really soft and stretchy, and they don’t bag out.
They have a 10″ rise and a 27″ inseam, so they’re about an inch shorter than the skinnies I usually wear, and an inch or so higher in the rise. I’m really loving this inseam/rise combo right now.
Saturday night, I went out to eat with a couple of girlfriends. I guess you could call it an early Galentine’s Day.
I took a few mirror selfies to help decide on my shoes…
I ended up going with my snake print booties… I really liked the pumps best, but I wasn’t familiar with the area and didn’t know how much walking we would have to do, so I decided to play it safe with boots.
These are the AG Farrahs I shared in Saturday’s Try-On Haul. They have a 10.5″rise and 28″ inseam, for comparison sake. I would prefer a 27″ inseam, but I don’t want to cut them because the shredded hem is a fun feature that I wouldn’t be able to recreate.
Then I wore this next look to church on Sunday. I was in the nursery, so I went a little more casual.
This is the first time I wore these Everlane jeans for any length of time, even though I’ve had them since before the holidays. They’re actually pretty good! They have a lot of stretch, and they didn’t bag out at all. The rise is quite high at 11″, but there’s enough stretch that it didn’t bother me.
These are the washed black, and I went with the ankle length (26.5″ inseam.) They’re the perfect length for pairing with my Chelsea boots. (I’ve been struggling find jeans that work well with these boots, so that was a win.)
After church, I changed into comfy worn-in Mother jeans and a cozy sweatshirt for the rest of the afternoon and evening… and slippers!
This sweatshirt is really thick and soft and plush inside — very impressive for an Amazon brand. My only complaint is that the hood is kind of heavy, but I get used to it after I have it on for a while.
Monday was a work-from-home day, and I wore workout gear so I wouldn’t have any excuses not to go for a walk when it warmed up.
I did go for a walk, and then I had to run out to a last minute appointment, so I changed into jeans and a sweater.
And then this was yesterday… These are the AG Prima cigarette ankle jeans and LOFT cowl neck I picked up during my shopping try-on sesh last week. When I was putting them both away in my closet, I noticed how good they looked together.
This sweater is now marked waaaaay down. It comes to $24.99 in cart!
And that’s it for this week. I know, it’s jeans, jeans, and more jeans… I really see no need to wear anything else this time of year.
I’m starting to like some of the straighter styles, though. I think the key for me is to keep them fitted through the thigh area, with a slightly wider leg opening than the legging fit I’ve become so used to wearing.
Oh, and one more thing. Remember the Free People snap sleeve tee I wore so much last fall? It’s a great top for spring too, and it finally went on sale!
