Greetings, and happy Veterans Day to all those who are serving or have served our great country! I know it’s a sacrifice in many ways for you and your families, and you are very much appreciated.
It’s also Wednesday, and you know what that means! It’s time for What I Wore Lately — a roundup of my daily outfits from the past week.
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
Starting with last Wednesday, it was quite chilly, and I had an eye doctor appointment, so I threw this quilted vest on over a cozy mockneck sweater so I could avoid wearing a coat.
I wore my Aquatalia Tilly booties (sold out) from last year. I can’t find the exact style now, but I found these at Nordstrom Rack and they’re right on trend with the lug sole. I’m tempted to try them…
I had a photo shoot with Alison on Thursday, and afterwards, I kept on this cozy pullover and printed leggings for the rest of the day. You’ll be seeing more of this look in a few days…
I had a mani/pedi on Friday… yikes, my hair was looking a bit rough here. I went for a run and then just showered off and got dressed for my appointment without washing my hair. It looks like I should have taken some time with the dry shampoo.
It was a really mild day, so I was able to wear a t-shirt and denim jacket! Crazy weather for November.
That brings us to Saturday… we mostly hung out here with my parents, amd it was another beautiful, warm, sunny day!
I pulled on a t-shirt and my Caslon utility jacket to run to the grocery store, and I just wore the t-shirt and jeans at home for the rest of the day.
I wore this sweater dress to church on Sunday. It drives me crazy that I can’t get it to photograph the true color. It’s a very pretty muted rust — not at all a red.
These boots are from the #NSale 2019 but I linked a very similar pair by the same brand. They may even be the same boots, for all I know.
They’re verrrry soft and comfortable, and such a nice shade of taupe. Mine ran true to size; I have the 8.
We came back home for a pot roast lunch and a birthday cake for David. He turns 21 this weekend!
I threw on a comfy pullover and jeans, and later on we visited with friends outdoors, so I added my favorite P448 sneakers.
On Monday, I worked out and stayed in workout gear all day. I’m loving this Athleta Momentum tank; I wish it came in other colors. It has the perfect fit and coverage.
Also, these Vuori leggings are AH-mazing. I liked the joggers so much, I wanted to try the leggings, and they did not disappoint. They’re suuuper soft and thick but not in a bulky way. Plus, they have great shape retention and a comfortable high rise with a smooth band, and they stay put.
FYI, Vuori offers 20% off your first order — it should show in a pop-up if you navigate around their site for very long. Shipping is free over $75, and returns are free as well.
For size reference, I take a medium in their joggers and leggings, but a small in the jacket.
And yesterday, Caroline and I drove to Massachusetts for a college visit. I wore one of my favorite casual uniforms — joggers with a grey v-neck tee, my P448 sneakers, and a denim jacket.
I always use my Neverfull for my laptop and other travel-related items when I travel by car or plane, and I usually put a crossbody with my purse essentials inside so I can grab it when want to get out at a rest stop, and to carry when we get to our destination.
Also, this is the first time I got to use the Away suitcase my parents gave Paul for his birthday last year. His birthday is March 1st, and he had a lot of work-related trips scheduled. Needless to say, they never happened, but this suitcase is so sleek and easy to pack and transport. He will love it once he gets back to traveling.
And that’s a wrap! I hope you are all hanging in there and staying safe and well.
There’s a lot of noise out there — my best advice is to choose wisely what information you consume, and know when to turn it off. I put my favorite playlist on in the car yesterday, and it’s all we listened to. No news, no social media. It was refreshing.
Make it a great day!
