What I Wore Lately Vol. 40
It’s the first Wednesday of 2021, and as usual, I’m sharing my outfits from the past week.
I’ll warn you, this week is a little, erm… repetitive. This is the time of year when it’s cold, and I’m spending a lot of time inside. I just want to be warm, cozy, and comfortable.
That means I tend to fall back on old favorites, and a lot of the items are old or low inventory, but I’ve rounded up my outfits nevertheless!
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and 135 pounds, with an 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
Last Wednesday, I had a workout appointment in the morning and a mani/pedi afterwards. I made a stop on the way home to exchange a Christmas gift, and then I just stayed in my workout gear for the rest of the day.
I wore my Vuori joggers with a Zella tee, and this Zella hoodie is perfect for throwing on after a workout.
My Cloud sneakers are new, I laughed when I saw Cyndi wearing this exact pair last week. I’ve been wanting a pair for a while, and I’ve tried a few pairs and returned them for various reasons, but these are keepers.
I love the color combo, and they’re very comfortable. I went with my true size 8, and they fit perfectly.
Thursday was a work day for me, but it was still Christmas Break for the kids. David and Caroline had plans with friends, and Becca went with me to the mall to make a return and pick up a few things for a photo shop this week.
I wore this white mock neck sweater from last year and my favorite rag & bone Cate skinnies with my Sorel Lennox booties. I love this combination of light neutrals.
When I went to the closet to pick out a coat, I was going to grab the black quilted coat I usually wear, and Becca suggested this one. I love how the bright color pops against the neutrals in the outfit.
We stayed home on New Year’s Eve, and I worked most of the day, and then we did pizza takeout for dinner.
This sweater was from the #NSale. I almost didn’t keep it, but I had a feeling I’d enjoy having this pretty pink color in my wardrobe after the holidays. It works really well with the grey high top sneakers.
I picked up these sneakers at DSW, and they’re still well stocked in both grey and black. I love the faux fur lining, and the wedge platform gives a good bit of support for finicky feet.
New Year’s Day was another long day at home. After I did some blog work in the morning, I was so tempted to crawl back in bed for a nap. But I looked at the weather, and it was going to be cold and rainy the next day, so I forced myself to put on running gear and go outside. I surprised myself by completing 4 miles!
When I got back, I stretched and showered and got dressed and made up, even though I had no place to go. It’s amazing what that will do for your state of mind.
I threw on this old black turtleneck with grey jeans and my P448 sneakers for the rest of the day.
This is the same turtleneck I wore in yesterday’s post with the Mother Tomcat jeans. It’s old, but I show you a close-up so you can see how it’s made.
I love the chunky ribbed cuffs and hem, but it definitely wasn’t my best choice for pairing with straight ankle jeans.
We stayed home on Sunday — the roads were icy, and I really needed a down day. In the interest of keeping it real around here, I snapped this picture.
I switched from pajama pants into leggings, but that’s as far as I got. I just kept on my pajama shirt with the sweater I always throw on first thing in the mornings. It seemed close enough to a t-shirt and cardigan. 💁🏻♀️
I decided to get my act together on Monday, and I did the shower/makeup thing. I can’t remember if I ran or not… oh, wait! I had a photo shoot with Alison. After that, I switched into another sweater/jeans/sneaker combo.
And then yesterday I had a chiro appt after my workout. I just showered off and put on some makeup and left my hair in a pony.
Yes, another black sweater with my grey jeans… #sorrynotsorry This time I wore boots, and honestly, the only reason I didn’t put on my sneakers again is to try to have some semblance of variety in this post.
Also, this sweater is long, and the heeled boots help achieve a better balance. I also felt like the v-neck is a dressier style and needed a more elevated shoe… but I would also front-tuck the sweater and wear sneakers with this.
I realize most people don’t put this much thought into an outfit to wear to a doctor appointment and the grocery store, but on some level, I’m always thinking ahead to this post. Plus, I have a lot of clothes that I love, so I might as well wear them, even if I’m just working at home and going to mundane appointments.
I don’t see my daily uniform changing much over the next couple of months, so I may start doing these posts every other Wednesday instead of every week. Especially now that I’m not posting on Saturdays, I could use another few days a month for other types of content.
So anyway, for now, that’s a wrap! I’ll be back tomorrow with some at-home workout looks with Zella, and I’ve got a Try-On Haul planned for Friday, if I can get my act together. Otherwise, I have some outfit posts in the queue, so I might share one of those. Which would you prefer?
