My Daily Looks: What I Wore Lately Vol. 9
Happy April 1st, my friends!!! We made it through March — usually the looooongest month of the year.
Somehow, this crazy virus turned out to be something of a distraction, and March didn’t feel that long at all. Am I the only one?
I read somewhere that Google is foregoing their usual April Fool’s jokes and pranks this year out of respect for all those fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. Which made me think…
Don’t you wish you could turn on the news today and find out this whole Coronavirus thing was a big April Fool’s joke?
I actually posted that to my Instagram feed yesterday. If only…
Unfortunately, COVID-19 is neither a joke nor a nightmare, and so we continue pressing on.
Meanwhile, it’s Wednesday, and you know the drill. Every other week on Wednesdays, I share what I’ve been wearing, and today’s the day.
I usually talk about where I wore these looks and why I chose them, but I’ve spent most of the past two weeks at home, so I think it pretty much goes without saying that I wore all of these looks at home.
We’ve been under a Stay-At-Home Order for the past 10 days, and before that it was a strong recommendation, so I haven’t been going about my normal activities for quite some time.
While yes, I do work from home, and I’m used to being home a lot, this lockdown is cramping my style… quite literally!
That said, this feature is about real life and what I’m really wearing, so I’ve continued to take pictures on a daily basis. Yep, I’ve documented it all… the good, the bad, and the ugly!
We’ve had some cold, chilly days and some beautiful, warm days, and everything in between, so these outfits are all over the place.
Oh, March, you are a fickle one!
I’m not even going to try to post in order or remember which day I wore what. I’m just going to share a little about each look, and then link the items I’m wearing, along with sizing notes, underneath each picture.
For size reference, I’m 5’5″ and 135-ish, and I typically wear a small in tops, 28 in jeans, and a 6 or 8 in dresses.
My Daily Looks #CoronaDiaries
I wore this cozy sweater and jeans and sneakers on a chilly weekday to run to the grocery store. I probably wore slippers the rest of the day.
This next outfit features one of my favorite spring sweaters. I think the color is so pretty, and it has such pretty details in the knit.
I’ve taken to wearing leggings more days than I care to count. These Beyond Yoga leggings are the ultimate in softness, and they feel so good against the skin.
They finally got restocked, but unfortunately, they’re back to full price.
If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly pair, my daughters love the 90 Degree leggings at Amazon. They’re very thick and soft, and they pass the squat test!
Another day at home, another casual outfit…
This cardigan is one of my favorite purchases from the #NSale last summer. It’s no longer available in this color, but the 3 current colors are 50% off!
And probably my most worn item from the #NSale last summer… this Vince pullover is soft and cozy and stretchy, and I love the relaxed casual vibe.
It’s back on sale again — 40% off!
We had some chilly days last week, so I took the opportunity to wear this pretty white mock neck sweater one more time. It was a splurge, but I know I’ll wear it for years.
I think I ran out to the store or something the day I wore this next look… or maybe it was the day I picked my car up from the shop.
We had some work done on it while we didn’t need it, and I left it there for like 3 days afterwards, hoping any germs would have died by then. (And of course, I wiped it all down with antibacterial wipes when I picked it up. These are some crazy times, I tell ya!)
At ay rate, I threw on my grey/black Everlane trainers with this loungewear/athleisure look, and I like how it works together. I originally bought these sneakers with Paris in mind, thinking I could wear them with black jeans and cute tops.
They’ve been discontinued, so I linked a similar pair. All of the Everlane sneakers I’ve tried are very supportive and comfortable on the foot.
And believe it or not, we had one 75 degree day! I wasted no time throwing on a tank top and shorts so I could soak in as much vitamin D as possible — I went for a walk in the park and then came home and sat on my back deck until the sun went down.
These are going to be my favorite shorts this summer; I’m calling it right now. They’re currently 40% off with code 2DAYs + 20% off with code DEAL. Shipping is free on orders of $25 or more, and returns are always free at Gap.
(Make sure you click on the REGULAR sizes — for some reason, my link keeps defaulting to the tall sizes. They’re available in petites too!)
I’ve been wearing a lot of cardigans lately. They’re nice for those days that start out on the cooler side, and then I can take off the top layer if it warms up in the afternoon.
Madewell cardigan (size S; 50% off) // Everlane tee (size S; 25% off) // Agolde crop jeans (25% off at Nordstrom; more sizes at Shopbop; wearing size 28) // Everlane loafer mules (size up; 25% off) // earrings // necklace // specs
And there’s that Vince sweater again! Hey, at least I know what I like.
Here I am before yoga one morning. I got both this tank and the leggings on sale a few months back.
I bought them to wear to the gym for weight training, but lately I’ve been wearing them for yoga at home. I like to be able to see my form in the mirror, so wearing form-fitting clothes helps.
This was last Sunday, the day I was feeling pretty down in the dumps. I didn’t even bother with makeup, but at least I did my yoga, so there’s that.
My Alo zip-up hoodie is a few years old, and I can’t find anything quite like it. It’s thin and lightweight and stretchy — a nice layer for milder days.
This one from Amazon has a similar style to it, though. It’s very slimming.
On Monday, I pulled myself up by my bootstraps and put myself together. It’s amazing what doing your hair and makeup and putting on pants that zip can do for your frame of mind.
I even got Paul to take a picture outside, although I have to say…
I don’t know if it’s his camera angle or the way I was standing or what, but this outfit does not look very flattering here. I think this sweater shrunk up a bit in the length, or maybe it was never quite as long as the grey one that I have.
Also, I’m not sure why the v-neck is sitting so wide on my shoulders. Definitely not the most flattering picture, but at least my hair looks nice. Ha!
My sweater, jeans, and shoes are all 25% off at Everlane.
And finally, I wore this Monday afternoon after running to the store, and then again yesterday.
I’ll be doing a full review in Friday’s try-on haul, but I have a small in both.
And that’s a wrap! I warned you it was all over the place.
I’m hoping we get some better weather now that we’re into April, but it’s still looking pretty chilly for the foreseeable future.
