Happy hump day, friends! It’s time for another edition of What I Wore Lately. This is a roundup of my daily looks from the past week. It’s been quite hot here lately, so these looks are all about trying to stay cool and comfortable.
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and 135 pounds, 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.
What I Wore Lately
My girls wanted to go to the mall last week, and I decided to wear a casual dress for a change of pace.
This cozy knit dress is soft and comfortable, and it has just enough shaping through the waist to be flattering. I like the dolman sleeves and subtle boat neck, and the curved hem is a nice touch. (It runs TTS; I’m in the small.)
They seemed a little heavy with the dress, though, so I tried my Cole Haan Anica sandals.
I also added a long pendant necklace — this one was a Christmas gift from Paul a few years back, and it’s definitely more of an investment piece.
If you’re looking for something similar at a more budget-friendly price point, I found this. You might be able to put it on a longer chain.
I think I like the dress better this way. Which look is your favorite?
The next day, I spent a few hours boxing up returns, and then I hung out with a friend while her kids swam. This cool and casual look was perfect for a hot summer afternoon on the deck.
Just when I thought I was done buying sandals… I could not resist these slides when I saw them in-store. They have just the right combination of minimalism and whimsy, and they’re also 40% off.
My tank and shorts are TTS, but I sized down half in the slides.
Another day, another black tank… This one is also from Madewell, but it’s a little bit different from the one above.
And this time I wore the P448 sneakers all day. They have a decent amount of cushion and support, and I try to wear a supportive shoe on days that I do a lot of standing at my desk.
I wore this next look to host friends in the backyard on Saturday night. Yes, another tank top and shorts combo… Did I mention it’s been super hot here lately?
Hey, at least I changed up my accessories this time. These earrings are lightweight and comfortable, even on a hot day.
The tank and shorts are super soft and comfortable, and I like how the gold slides are still casual but add a touch of glam to the look.
These slides have been restocked in most sizes, and they’re really cute on and comfy too. Use code SPRING60to get 60% off.
And this was church on Sunday… I knew I’d just be coming home and getting in the pool, so I decided to throw my hair into a ponytail and be done with it.
This dress is cool and comfortable, and so easy to throw on and go.
I did add some different jewelry, including the Kendra Scott multi collar necklace from Saturday’s Try-On Haul… which has been restocked!!! It says there are only a few left, though, so grab one quick if you wanted it.
I skipped the hair and makeup routine on Monday, and just threw on this tank top and skirt to work from home all day.
I wouldn’t typically put this shade of blush with the rust-colored tank, but the Birks offer good support for my feet and back when I’m standing at my desk a lot, and it actually doesn’t look too bad.
It probably sounds like we’re throwing caution to the wind, seeing friends all the time, but it’s pretty much the same group of people, and we stay outside as much as possible.
I really like the longer shorts and the minimalist brown thong sandals with this top, and I added a Victoria Emerson wrap bracelet to jazz it up a bit.
And that’s a wrap!
It’s been kind of a slow one week. We were supposed to be in Maine right now, but we’ve decided to stay put for the time being, so my calendar is pretty empty.
Make it a great day!
