Hi friends, it’s time for another What I Wore Lately! For anyone new to following along, this is exactly what it says it is, a roundup of my everyday outfits. They’re all pretty casual because I live a casual life, but hopefully you’ll find some winter outfit inspiration in here.
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and I usually wear a small in tops and dresses, a 29 in jeans, and a size 8 shoe. Gifted items are indicated by c/o; everything else I purchased myself.
What I Wore Lately: Two Weeks of Everyday Outfits
This first outfit is one I wore to work from home for most of the day, after a morning photo shoot. Unfortunately, this hoodie is selling out, but if you can grab one in your size, it’s really cozy and fun to wear. I love the exposed seams and raw hem and stripe detail on the sleeves.
Another casual day at home… these are some of my most comfortable jeans, and they’re not so long that I can’t wear them with flat shoes, as long as they have a bit of a platform, like these UGG mini boots.
I ended up changing and wearing this Spanx set after doing some try-ons later that afternoon. (The Spanx top was one of the last items I tried on, so I just kept it on.)
And then, I changed again to go out that night! That’s just how it goes some days.
Paul’s office holiday party was held in January this year, at a local restaurant, and I wasn’t sure how to dress so I went with black jeans and a pretty blouse.
The blouse is from last year, so I linked a couple similar options below, and the jeans are the PAIGE Leenah Trouser. They’re an inky black wash and have a trouser style hem, so they’re a nice way to walk the line between dressy and casual. I had them hemmed so I can wear them with a low heel.
I topped it all off with my faux fur jacket, but it was probably overkill for this event. Nobody was super dressed up. Oh, well! I only get so many chances to wear it, plus it’s actually really warm, and we had to walk a ways from the car to the restaurant.

The next night, we went out to see a friend’s band perform at a local venue, so I wore my usual black and denim uniform.

This is what I wore to church that Sunday, with my black bouclé wool coat on top. These ankle-length flares seem just a tad more dressy than the full length pair above, and I tend to wear them with heels when I want a more elevated look.
I spent most of that Monday working from home, and I decided to try out my new KUT from the Kloth utility jeans. I’m happy to report that they’re quite comfortable for all-day wear. They don’t bag out in unfortunate places, but they do have enough give to be comfortable.
I have no recollection of where I went the day I wore this next outfit. There’s nothing on my calendar, but I clearly went somewhere because I would not have put on a coat otherwise.
I wore this denim skirt outfit after a photo shoot to run some errands afterwards.
When I got home, I changed into jeans and sneakers with the same sweater.
And then I changed my tops later in the day to go see my chiropractor. He works on my arm and shoulder, so I figured the t-shirt would be easier to through with than a sweater.
I did absolutely nothing with myself the next day, but I still took a picture because I’m committed to these posts. LOL!
That brings us to last Thursday. I worked from home after my morning workout, and then I had to run out to an appointment that afternoon, so I pulled on jeans and a top for that.
I wore this casual outfit to get my nails done last Friday. I love this cozy pullover with the side stripe detail.
And then we went out to dinner that night, so I switched into a slightly more elevated look. This sweater is from last season, and I like the ankle flares with these low heeled almond toe booties. I topped it off with my black bouclé wool coat, but I didn’t get a picture with that.
This picture is from my parents’ house. We traveled to Virginia last weekend for a quick visit. I wore the Spanx set to travel, and also to hang out for a while before I changed to meet my high school bestie for lunch.
This is what I wore to lunch, and for the rest of the evening visiting with family. I shortened these jeans, and I sort of wish I hadn’t gone quite so short, but it’s so hard to know if I’d like them any better if they were longer. Typically, I like to see a sliver of ankle with sneakers and slim fit jeans like these, but something looks a little off to me.
This outfit is what I wore to church last Sunday. These pants are new, and they’re really comfortable. If you need work wear, or just an occasional alternative to denim, I highly recommend them.
Back home on Monday, I wore this casual look to work from home and run some errands. This hoodie is last year’s version of my green Kerry Tape Trim Hoodie.
I’m happy they shortened the strings in this year’s version, because these are ridiculously long. They’re always getting in my way, but I do love this color. This is the small, but I have the medium in the green. They both fit okay, but I do like the way the medium gives me a little extra length in the body.
And then I wore this yesterday to meet a friend for lunch. Most of it is old and no longer available, except for the jeans, which I’m really enjoying!
They’ve got a bit of a wider flare than some of my others and I think the color is nice for a change. Plus, they’re very soft and stretchy and comfy, which I always appreciate in a pair of jeans!
