Greetings and happy hump day! It’s been a couple of weeks since I shared my latest outfits, so today’s post is a long one. Let’s get right to it!
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
This first look goes back two weeks, and I went for a run after dropping Savannah off for her dental surgery. I took a quick picture before I left the house, because I often get asked about my winter running gear.
This Zella training top and the Athleta polartec tights are both really warm, so all I needed on top was a vest. I’ve only ever worn this vest with street clothes, but it worked pretty well for running.
After my run, I showered off and did my makeup, and I wore this cozy funnel neck pullover with jeans and wedge sneakers for the rest of the day.
I cut these jeans to be a better length for booties, and they work perfectly with these Dolce Vita high top wedge sneakers.
I went walking with a friend the next day, and afterwards did a bunch of try-ons. I wore this old favorite sweater for the rest of the day with my Agolde straight leg jeans. I was trying add some variety to my looks, but I don’t love the length of this sweater with these jeans.
Funny, when I wear skinnies with a 27″ inseam, I like the look, but the straight leg style seems to make my legs look shorter.
I’m also thinking it may be time to retire this sweater; it’s looking really stretched out. Before I give up on it, I’m going to throw it in the dryer and see if that helps it regain the original shape.
I wore this to my workout the next day, and then I just kept in on afterwards. It was a Friday, and the kids all had plans that night.
Paul and I discussed going out, but that would have required changing clothes and putting on makeup, so we ordered takeout from Outback and binge-watched Broadchurch instead. Do we know how to party, or what?
I did some try-ons after my run the next day, and then I took the girls to the mall. It was a cold day, but I was toasty warm in this wool blend sweater, down puffer, and faux fur lined sneaker boots.
FYI, these boots are restocked in all sizes, in both black and taupe, and they’re still on sale for $89. They are so warm and cozy, and they have good support. Highly recommend.
The next day was Sunday, and I wasn’t feeling good, so I stayed home from church and read a book for most of the afternoon. I wore my Abercrombie sherpa and Zella lounge leggings for most of the day, but I don’t have a picture. You are welcome.
I had a photo shoot on Monday, and afterwards, I wore this casual look with an Old Navy cowl neck sweater and grey jeans. I showed this sweater with blue jeans in my last Try-On Haul, but I also really love it with the grey.
Oh, and it finally went on sale! It’s $42 plus 25% off in cart. It comes down to $31 and some change.
The next day, I just threw on joggers and a sweatshirt to go to a chiropractor appt.
I’ve had this sweatshirt for years, and it’s so basic, but there’s just something about it that I love. I keep it in my closet year-round, and it’s one I like to throw on with jean shorts on a cool summer night.
Last Wednesday was another boring day at home, and I threw on the Zella funnel neck pullover with joggers after I went for a run and did a few try-ons.
I had a workout on Thursday morning, and then that afternoon, I had an appointment for a glycolic peel. This is what I wore to work out.
And then I threw this cozy hoodie on top to wear for the rest of the day. No sense putting on makeup or jewelry to get a chemical peel, so I just went as is.
That brings us to last Saturday. R and I went to the mall for a while in the afternoon, and I got myself showered and dressed in one of my favorite #NSale outfits, lol! The sweater, jeans, and boots were all from the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
This is how it looks from behind. The jeans stay pretty well over the top of the boots in the front, and I let them sit inside of the tab in the back.
Also, these boots are 60% off and still available in quite a few sizes/colors. Don’t rule out the grey and olive green. I’ve seen both on, and they are gorgeous and highly versatile.
I was running late to church on Sunday, so I just threw my hair into a ponytail and did an abbreviated makeup routine. I knew I needed something tried and true to throw on that I didn’t have to think about, so I grabbed this Naadam sweater and my black AG Farrahs.
I opted for the flats rather than boots because they were easy to throw on and go, and pumps seemed a bit much with a ponytail. I realize no one else considers such things, lol, but that was my thought process as I made that split-second shoe decision.
Oh, and these flats are still well stocked and 66% off at Nordstrom Rack.
Alrighty then! Now we’re at Monday, I guess. I had a photo shoot with Alison, and then when I got home, R wanted to go to the outlet mall.
I had these jeans on from our photo shoot, so I threw on this sweater from last year and my Marc Fisher Chelsea boots because I knew I’d be doing a lot of walking, and they’re very comfortable, plus they have a low heel.
These are the AG Mari straight leg jeans we’ve discussed a few times. I actually tried them on last year at the mall but didn’t purchase them at the time.
I have more to say about these, but we can discuss in Friday’s Try-On Haul.
I threw my J.Crew wool cocoon coat on top, in an attempt to wear something other than my black The North Face parka, which is what I usually wear when I’m going to be out and about in the cold. R told me I looked bougie, but I felt cute!

And finally, this is what I wore yesterday. I already had on the Athleta Altitude tights from my run/walk in the morning, but I didn’t sweat much because I did a lot of walking, so I just kept them on because they are SO warm.
I changed out of my turtleneck and running jacket and into this Sweaty Betty sweatshirt, and I swapped my Brooks running shoes for these Cloud X trainers.
And that’s a wrap! I’m running late for my workout, per my usual, so I need to dash. Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!
