It’s been a crazy few weeks around here, and I have to admit, posting these pictures brings back memories of days I’d rather forget. But, the show must go on.
The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking
But my smile, still, stays on…
Sorry, I was channeling my inner Freddie Mercury there for a second. I can’t say “the show must go on” without humming that tune.
This is the last one of these outfit roundups I’ll be doing for a while. Next month, Cyndi and I are doing 22 Days of Summer Fashion, so I’ll be posting an outfit every weekday, and my try-on hauls will move to Saturdays.
Meanwhile, here’s what I’ve been wearing for the past couple of weeks.
What I Wore Lately
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and 135 pounds, with a slight hourglass shape. I’m wearing a 6/28 in pants/jeans, a small in tops, a 6 in dresses/jumpsuits, and size 8 shoe unless otherwise noted.
This first look is what I wore to my allergist appointment, back when I had high hopes of being able to keep Ozzy. These jeans are 67% off, by the way.
I think these side shots are helpful, especially with cardigans. I really like the length of this one. Of course, it’s sold out.
I also get some questions from time to time about how I put my hair up — it’s just a ponytail. I have kind of a flat head, lol, so I try to place it right in the middle.
Next is what I wore for my photoshoot with Main Line Today, a local magazine that does a fashion feature each month. I’ll be featured in the July issue, so that is super exciting!
I wanted to wear something that I feel represents my style, so I picked this floral blouse with my go-to white jeans and snake print embossed wedge slides.
And I have good news for those who wanted this blouse! I just found it fully stocked at Macy’s, AND on sale through 5/31! It comes down to $47.40 with code MEMDAY. It runs TTS; I have the small.
After the photo shoot, I changed into a tank and shorts for the rest of the afternoon. It was one of our first 70-degree days, which may not sound that warm to some of you, but compared to the weather we’ve had this spring, it feels like summertime to me.
I’ve shared these sandals several times. They’re fully stocked and 39% off at Nordstrom, and they come in a bunch of colors; this is the New Natural Leather.
And then this was the day we saw Paul’s dad for the last time. It probably sounds a little irreverent to take an outfit picture on my way out the door, but it’s such a habit for me at this point.
This henley linen tee is back in stock and marked down to $18.
This was a few days later. A family member stopped through briefly after visiting Paul’s mom, so I took a little extra time with accessories. These days, I’ll take any excuse I can get!
I first put together the grey top and light wash jeans, and then these shoes caught my eye. I like mixing grey with tan; it’s rather unexpected, and the silver studs tie in the grey top.
Then I added this bracelet because it also combines silver with earth tones. These are small details, but that’s how to level up a simple outfit.
I’m not sure when this next picture was. For some reason I put the wrong date on it. I must have gone somewhere, since I had sunglasses on my head — probably to the grocery store.
I love this tee, it is soooo soft. Size up, though; I have the medium.
I wore this to PT, after a photo shoot with Alison. She’s been coming here to the house, and we shoot outside where it’s easy to social distance.
This was a Sunday afternoon at home, and I probably ended up out by the pool. This is my go-to outfit when I want to get some sun but don’t want to put on a bathing suit.
Does it help to see multiple angles, or is it too redundant? Anyway, here’s the side view.
I’m really glad I decided to keep these Birks. They took a bit of breaking in, but they’re very comfortable and have some support, which I need.
I took this picture on my way to go take Ozzy to his new home. I’m not really sure how I mustered a smile, but I was trying to be strong for R.
This was the next day. It was drab and rainy, and I stayed in bed as long as I could to avoid facing the day.
Eventually, I had to get up and work on returns. I didn’t take time with hair or makeup or even contacts, but I threw on real clothes and some jewelry in an attempt to feel somewhat normal.
I decided to keep these Rag & Bone jeans, as I’ve been wanting a darker wash in a 27″ inseam, and I like the finished hem for a change. They’re still on sale, but inventory is getting depleted. They’re TTS; I’m wearing the 28.
The next day, we all tried to rally. R emerged from her room and asked to go to Target to get some pool floats, and we all showered and put ourselves together and tried to make a fun outing out of it.
I took a shower and did my hair and makeup, and then I tried this garden henley tee a few ways. I ended up pretty much back to where I started, but it was a nice distraction to play around with an outfit.
Since there’s blush in the top, I thought the shoes worked well with the look.
These flats are on sale, and I like them, but they do require some breaking in. I recommend sizing up half; I have the 8.5.
I’m not sure why I wasn’t loving that denim wash with the top — it looks fine to me in these pix. But I decided to try it with black jeans, so I pulled out these straight crops.
I debated my shoe choice, and first tried these gold slides.
They don’t thrill me, for some reason, so I tried these sandals, even though I knew I wouldn’t want to wear them in the rain. At this point, I was just trying to figure out what shoe styles work with the pants.
I think I like the dressier look of the strappy sandals on the cork footbed, but I wasn’t sold on the outfit. Maybe it needs a heel.
Next, I tried a silver wedge and a denim jacket. Clearly I wasn’t going to wear this to Target, but maybe there’s a date night in my future.
I like the jacket with the outfit, but I’m not sure about the shoes. I think the black crop jeans look like floods with these wedges.
I’m not sure if it’s the heel or the fact that the shoes are light so there is low contrast between the shoes and my skin, but after all that, I think the black strappy sandals are my best bet.
They anchor the look without being clunky, and they don’t create as much space between the end of the pants and the floor.
Unfortunately, I didn’t think to try them with the denim jacket.
At that point, I needed to finish up and get going, so I went back to the jeans and blush flat combo.
Sunday started out chilly and overcast once again, but it burned off and turned out to be a gorgeous afternoon. In fact, the same thing happened on Saturday. Both days, I ended up in my swimsuit.
This suit is from last year, so I can’t link it, but it’s the Prima Donna brand. I love their tankinis because they have a built-in bra, and they offer support and coverage without looking matronly. In fact, I just ordered this one.
My pareo is back this year and on sale. It’s the easiest thing to throw on over my suit and take off and on when I want to sunbathe. Yes, I sunbathe. #dontjudgeme
I spent most of Monday in this dress over my bathing suit. We hosted friends for dinner out on the deck, and I just kept this on because I thought we might end up swimming, but we didn’t.
And that brings us to yesterday. I wore three different outfits, does this sound familiar?
It was chilly and foggy in the morning, and I had a PT appointment, so I threw on my Vuori joggers and matching hoodie.
I sized up in the joggers, but the hoodie is TTS. I also love this Athleta tee. It’s beyond soft, as they say, and it has a flattering neckline and such a nice drape.
I got back home and worked for a while, and then I decided to take a break and spend some time in the pool. I wore my other Prima Donna swimsuit and trusty pareo.
After that, I took a quick shower and threw on my favorite jean shorts and this comfy tee to work for the rest of the afternoon. Unfortunately, both are sold out.
And that’s a wrap!
It seems like summer is FINALLY here. I think we skipped right over spring, and that’s fine by me. I’m so over the spring of 2020, I can’t even tell you. Bring on summer!
