Greetings, and happy hump day! It’s time for another edition of What I Wore Lately, a roundup of my “real life” outfits from the past week.
It seems like spring has finally sprung here in Philly, and I’m so happy to finally be wearing all the spring clothes that have been beckoning me from inside my closet for the past two months.
What I Wore Lately
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.
This first outfit is one I wore last Wednesday to run some errands. Unfortunately, the snap trim tank I’m wearing sold out at Evereve, and I can’t find it anywhere else.
I recommend sizing down in these cargo joggers. And yes, the price tag is a bit steep; but on a cost per wear basis, it has worked out okay for me. (I also snagged mine while on sale.) I rounded up some other options at various price points in yesterday’s post.
I had friends over that night for sushi takeout, and I can’t remember why I changed, but I did.
Oh, yes! I had a photo shoot the next day — in which I needed to wear the cargo joggers. I didn’t want to risk getting dinner on them. I also didn’t want to wear a denim jacket inside all night, and the tank would be too cold, so I did an entire outfit overhaul.
I believe I also tried on some new clothes that came in the mail — this white top being one of them. So I kept it on and threw on my favorite Mother Insiders. They’re my most comfortable jeans at the moment… so soft, and they seem to run a tad bigger than the rest of my size 28s. I’ve been on the struggle bus with my weight lately, so these are the ones I keep reaching for.
As I said, I had a photo shoot the next day… thus the heavy eye makeup here. I came back home and threw on this hoodie and cropped jeans. It was a chilly day, but I still wore sandals, I don’t know why. I guess because I was just going to be around the house. Sneakers would have made more sense.
Here are a few more shots. This hoodie came from Evereve in a Trendsend box (I wanted to try the service) and I love it. It is soooooo soft and thick and comfy. I also like the cropped styling and wide waistband. It makes it a little more chic than your typical slouchy hoodie.
It’s a bit spendy, but it just went on sale! I’d say it is definitely worth the sale price.
The next day was Friday, and my parents were here for a visit. We drove out to Lancaster County for the day, and I wore this familiar outfit.
Nothing new here, really, but this sweater is on super markdown. It’s TTS; I have the small. It also washes up well and holds it shape; I wash it on delicate and lay it flat to dry.
The next day was Saturday, and we went the opposite direction, and took my parents into Philly. We did the Constitution Walking Tour — I highly recommend it if you’re ever in Philly.
For some reason, we didn’t get a single picture with me in it. I have one of my parents and Paul and Becca (the other kids had to work) and a couple of Paul and Becca, but none with me. But I did grab a mirror selfie before we left, so I have proof of my outfit.
My Marrakech bomber jacket is restocked and on sale — still spendy, but every bit helps. It’s a really nice quality, and I love it.
I wore my teal turtleneck tee and black skinny pants to church on Sunday. This sweater is currently half off; it’s really nice for this in-between weather we’ve been having.
Unfortunately, my pants are low inventory. The Spanx skinny pants are similar, but these are a little less legging-ish, which I felt were more appropriate for church.
That afternoon, we said good-bye to my parents, and I changed into jeans and a sweater and sneakers to host some friends for snacks and games that evening.
That brings us to Monday — I dressed in joggers with a t-shirt and denim jacket to take my daughter to an appointment.
And yesterday, I had a dentist appointment. Good times! I wore my comfy Mother Insiders with a white tee and the black utility jacket. It’s very lightweight, which is good b/c it got hot yesterday!
When I got back home, I ditched the jacket and swapped the espadrilles for my favorite Dolce Vita sandals, so I was basically wearing the same outfit I wore to Sanibel Island when we were in Florida. Seriously, I’d wear this every day if I could.
This tee is so good, and I’m bummed that it’s selling out. I can’t seem to find it anywhere in the white, but I did find grey and black on the ATM website.
And that’s all I’ve got for today! I’m off to take my other daughter to an appointment… it never ends! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
