Happy hump day, friends! I’m currently sitting in a Starbucks parking lot, waiting for my Americano to cool off, using their WiFi so I can get this post up and my newsletter out.
Hurricane Isaias blew through here yesterday and left a bunch of flooded roads and downed power lines in its wake. Good times!
Meanwhile, the show must go on!
I haven’t been feeling terribly inspired in the fashion department as of late, and I think you will see that reflected in these pictures. I almost didn’t even post them, and then I thought I might as well because otherwise the #NSale is going to totally overwhelm what little summer content I’ve got.
It’s not that I’m ready for fall. I most certainly am not! I intend to soak up every last drop of summer, but I’d be happy to do that wearing the same shorts and sandals every day.
Any-who. Enough of my rambling. For better or for worse, this is what I’ve been wearing lately…
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.
I wore this first look to PT last Wednesday. These joggers are my all-time favorites, well worth the spendy price tag. So comfortable, great quality, and the fit is on point too.
They run small; I have the medium.
Afterwards, I changed to take my daughter to a doctor appointment. I kept on the grey tee, but switched into jeans and sneakers and added some jewelry.
I love this tee — it’s pretty basic, but it is soooo soft and just a nice shade of grey. Size up if ordering; I have the medium.
The next day, I had an early morning appointment with my orthopedic doc to follow up on my hip/butt/back issue, which is finally improving. Yay!
After that, I had a mani/pedi appointment, so I kept on the joggers because I could pull them up easily. Of course, I wore flip-flops home from the nail salon.
The next day, I actually did my hair and put on real clothes! Even though I was mostly at home, I wore jeans and a tee. Both are soft and comfortable and have that great lived-in fit and feel.
As someone in my Facebook Group put it so eloquently yesterday: If you wear yoga pants every day, you have no idea how big your butt is really getting… #justsayin
Truer words were never spoken.
FYI, these Paige jeans are 25% off at Verishop with code HIGHSUMMER, with free 2-day shipping and free returns! I take my usual size 28.
Okay, this was yet another day at home. I’m losing track of which day was which. #summertimeblues
And I think both the tank and shorts are sold out, but I’ll link them anyway in case of restocks.
And that brings us to Sunday… I wore this floral top and white jeans to church. This blouse is on sale, and fully stocked! It’s really a pretty one. And my go-to white skinnies are on sale too!
And I changed into this old tank top and jeans for Sunday afternoon. I was totally lazy… laid around, napped, read, etc. It was lovely!
On Monday, I thought all day I was going to be getting my hair cut, so I didn’t bother fixing it. I did put on makeup, though.
Turns out, my hair appt was Tuesday… d’oh!
And yesterday, I did absolutely nothing with myself. I didn’t even take a picture. I woke up to rain and gale force winds, and by lunchtime we were without power.
The sun was shining brilliantly by mid-afternoon, but we are still waiting on power to be restored… good times! I sure do wish I’d bothered to wash and fix my hair on Monday.
Oh, well… if all goes well, I will finally get to the salon tonight for my cut and color. *crossing fingers*
Meanwhile, I’m off to Nordstrom to shop the Anniversary Sale with a ball cap on… and a mask, of course. At least they have A/C and WiFi, right?
Wish me well!
