What I Wore Lately Vol. 18

Last week, many of you said you wouldn’t mind seeing these posts weekly, so today I’m sharing what I wore lately. This post basically answers a question I get a lot: But what do you really wear?

Hint: I pretty much wear the outfits I share in dedicated outfit posts, or at least something like that. I don’t keep it all because I don’t need it all, but I only share outfits that I like and would wear in my daily life.

In these posts, I try to share where I wore each look and point out the features that I like about certain pieces. Sometimes I talk about how I put each outfit together, and even show the “outfit evolution” when I try a few things before making my final decision about what to wear.

I am no fashion expert, nor does fashion necessarily come easily to me. I’m just a woman who likes clothes, trying to figure it all out and over-sharing on the internet!

With that all said, here’s what I wore this week.

What I Wore Lately

SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and 135 pounds-ish, with a slight hourglass shape. Unless I say otherwise, I’m wearing a 6/28 in pants/jeans, a small in tops, a 6 in dresses/jumpsuits, and size 8 shoe.

This first outfit is what I wore last Wednesday to visit my friendly gastroenterologist.

I threw on this pink linen tank with dark wash skinnies, and then I added my snake print sandals for a bit of pattern and texture. I kept my jewelry simple with Yurman hoops and a pair of Lagos bracelets.

These jeans have been restocked in a few sizes; I love the dark rinse and the 27″ inseam. They run TTS; I have my usual size 28.

The next day, I had PT and then a workout appointment, so I wore workout gear all day.

I’m wearing a medium in this Zella tee, but I recently purchased a different color in a small, and I prefer the fit of the small. Although, as you can see, sizing up for a more relaxed fit works too.

I still love and adore these Vuori joggers. Definitely size up in these, though. I’m wearing the medium.

And finally, these P448 sneakers were a birthday gift from my mom, and I had to size up. I have the 38 in my other pair, but I needed a 39 in these.

It rained all day Friday, and I wore this lightweight striped sweater with my Paige straight ankle jeans.

I got these jeans on a 40% off sale, and I’m hoping they go back on sale soon! I’m keeping an eye on them.

I had to take my daughter to the orthodontist, so I threw on cute shoes for that. Otherwise, I wore slippers all day.

Happily, the weather cleared up on Saturday. I worked in the morning, and then Paul and I spent the afternoon in the pool. Afterwards, we went over to a friends’ patio for drinks to celebrate his birthday (the friend’s birthday, not Paul’s).

I wore this pink top again, but this time I wore jean shorts, and I ended up switching into these Ann Taylor cork sandals. My feet were hurting and I thought the 1″ heel would help, plus they looked a little dressier.

I really wanted to wear white shorts, but I’ve worn white shorts the last few times I got together with this group of people, so I wore jean shorts instead. Like anyone cares… ha! (Yes, I think about these things.)

We went to church on Sunday, and I wore my white jeans with this pink Talbots sweater.

You guys, this sweater is now marked down to $22.49, and these jeans come down to $35.99 with code GIANT. FYI, they’re final sale.

Both the sweater and jeans run TTS; I have the small and 28, respectively.

Later that evening, we went out to dinner. I had already taken off my church clothes, and I didn’t feel like wearing jeans to dinner when it was so hot out, so I put on these utility shorts and funnel neck tank with strappy block heel sandals.

These sandals are 30% off, by the way.

I love the look, but I felt a little extra wearing heels with shorts for a casual family dinner.

I decided to go with my snake print flats, and I felt more comfortable that way, but the top… I dunno. As much as I want to like it, it just seems to really draw attention to my chest.

I ended up switching into this one, which is the exact same fabric and cut, except with a round neck and cap sleeves. I’m not sure why it makes such a difference, but I did feel more comfortable in this.

Also, these shorts are $29, and they also come in olive green.

When we were walking over to the restaurant, I spotted this wall, so we stopped for a quick Instagram photo.

I had a photo shoot on Monday, and I wore this afterwards to Trader Joe’s and Target.

These jeans are selling out, but they’re on sale, and I really like this darker wash. There are more sizes at the Kut from the Kloth website, but they aren’t on sale over there.

And yesterday I had PT, followed by a mani/pedi… bliss! I went with a bright coral on my hands and feet this time. #byebyewhite

And that’s it for this week. I hope yours is going well so far. I’ll be back tomorrow with my Nordstrom Clearance Sale finds!
