What I Wore Lately Vol. 25
Greetings, friends! I don’t know about you, but I can hardly believe it’s already Saturday again. That means it’s also time for another edition of What I Wore Lately.
This weekly feature basically answers the question I get a lot: “But, what do you REALLY wear?”
I also rounded up some things I’ve worn that are on sale this weekend at the end of this post.
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.
WHAT I WORE LATELY
This first look harkens back to last Saturday…
Why does no one say harkens anymore? I rather like it, but it sounds like I’m writing a historical fiction novel rather than a blog post.
Any-who. I spent the morning working, and then I got dressed and went out to run some errands. I wanted to get all of the food and drinks for our Labor Day cookout so I didn’t have to go out on Monday morning.
(And no, I did not curl my hair for Saturday errands; it was left over from the night before, and I was happy to see it still looked decent so I kept it down.)
Unfortunately, this tie dye tee is selling out. I love the colors. I paired it with grey jeans and my white leather Veja sneakers.
I’ve had these jeans for a long time, but I haven’t worn them much this summer. I tend to wear them more in fall and winter. I’m excited to have them in my rotation again, and so glad to see them still in stock.
They do go on sale occasionally, and of course, I will always recommend waiting for a sale when purchasing premium denim. I’ll keep an eye on them.
When I got home, I realized it was hotter than I had originally thought, so I switched into shorts and sandals for the rest of the afternoon.
My shorts are sold out, but these have a similar look to them. They’re a little longer, but you could always cuff them again if you like the shorter length.
I wore this Eileen Fisher dress to church on Sunday with my gold Tory Burch Millers.
This dress is spendy, but the quality is amazing, and I snagged it for almost half off during the #NSale. Unfortunately, this color seems to be sold out, but the black is nice too.
Oooh, guess what? I think it’s on sale at Bloomingdale’s. If it’s not the same, it is verrrry similar. Only in black and a pale pink called Bramble, but the price is great.
And that brings us to Labor Day Monday! I wore white shorts and a floral henley tee to host friends for a backyard BBQ.
FYI, this top is marked down to $12 and fully stocked. It’s a linen tee, so more summery, but because the floral print is grounded on a black background, I’ll wear it for a few more weeks. It’s also nice paired with blue jeans and black pants. It runs true to size; I have the small.
On Tuesday, I threw on my Free People camo tee from the #NSale with cropped skinnies and Birks to work from home. I also had a late afternoon doctor appointment, and then I attended a meeting at the high school that evening.
I’m wearing a small in the tee, and I like the snug fit, but you could size up for more wiggle room. I wash it on cold and hang to dry.
I spent most of Wednesday at home, although I’m wearing shoes so I must have run out somewhere… Oh, yeah. I had to run Becca by the high school to pick up a textbook, and then later on I think I ran to the store for dinner stuff.
My P448 sneakers definitely take this simple grey tee and black jeans up a notch. They’re spendy, but they do occasionally go on sale… oh, and look at that! They’re currently 20% off at Zappo’s. It’s not a huge savings, but they rarely go much lower… I may have seen them for 30% off at one point.
I jazzed up my joggers with my tie dye tee and a denim jacket to go to PT on Thursday.
In case you’re wondering why I’m wearing sandals to PT, she also works on my foot, and I don’t want my feet to be sweaty from sneakers. I used to carry sneakers along for the exercise portion, but I don’t usually need them, so I finally stopped with that.
I had a photo shoot yesterday morning, and then I went directly to the salon for a mani/pedi appointment.
And then I changed to go out to dinner with friends last night. Unfortunately this top is selling out. I love it, but I suppose it is rather summery.
By the way, I found a similar pair of AG Farrah skinnies on sale for 30% off — the main difference is the traditional sewn hem, which I think I might even prefer with this outfit. I’m kind of getting tired of the ragged hems… at least with more dressed-up outfits like this one, but the wash on these is superb, and I love the fit.
And that’s it for what I wore this week!
Things I’ve Worn On Sale
Here are a few things I’ve worn that are on sale this weekend, and I wanted to give you a heads-up.
If you need a classic black dress, this Scoop Neck Dress in Bi-Stretch is perfection. It was $150, and it’s marked down to $75 at Ann Taylor.
And this Slub Cotton-Modal Tee from Banana is one of my favorites for layering. They’re doing 30% off 2 or more tees right now.
I also like this zebra print tee, and it comes in leopard as well. FYI, you’ll want to size up in their tees; I wear a medium.
My rag & bone sunnies are on sale again, finally! I snatched them up when they were on sale last spring. They’re $157.50, down from $225, at Shopbop.
The Gap washed black straight crop jeans I styled last week are marked down to $42. They’re true to size.
The J.Crew Going Out Blazer is part of their Buy More, Save More sale: 40% off 3+ full-price styles, 30% off 2 styles, or 25% off one style with code ADDTOBAG.
I love this blazer, it’s so flattering, and it has enough stretch to be comfortable, while retaining its structure.
And the sleeveless mock neck sweater I styled a while back is included as well.
There’s probably more, so I’ll add them as I see them.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
