Happy hump day, friends! You know what that means — it’s time for What I Wore Lately! Although it’s getting to be that time of year when it probably makes sense to go back to posting these every other week. If you think my fall-winter outfits are repetitive, just wait till we get to the dog days of summer.
Anyway, let’s dive right in.
SIZING NOTES: Unless I say otherwise, I’m wearing a 6/28 in pants/jeans, a small in tops, and size 8 shoe.
What I Wore Lately
Last Wednesday, I took my daughter to get some lab work done. It was the first time she had ever had blood drawn, and she was nervous, but she did great.
It was a pretty day, but not terribly warm that morning, so I pulled out my cashmere hoodie. I like how the light neutrals in this outfit give a nod to spring, but the cozy cashmere sweater kept me comfortable until it warmed up enough to ditch it.
This hoodie is a great price for cashmere, and I like the sporty vibe. I have my usual size small, but if you have long arms, you might want to size up for additional sleeve length.
I went straight from my workout to the dentist for a filling on Thursday, but when I got home, I showered off and put on this simple black and denim outfit for the rest of the day.
These sandals are a great price, and I think they’re really cute, but definitely size up half; they run small and narrow. Conversely, you will probably want to size down in these jeans. I’m wearing the 4, which is unusual for me, but I often need to size down in this brand.
Friday was a busy day! I had a photo shoot for DSW in the morning (that post goes live tomorrow!) Then Paul and I went down to visit his mom for the day. When we got back, Alison came over to shoot Caroline’s graduation photos, and after that, we went over to our old neighborhood to visit with friends for the evening.
I didn’t even think to take a picture of my outfit, so I recreated it on Sunday afternoon after church. I don’t think I wore these earrings on Friday (I probably wore the Lagos studs) but everything else is the same.
This cheetah print jacket came from Trunk Club last spring, and I got it for a really great price. It was right after the pandemic hit, when all the stores were practically giving stuff away. I thought it had sold out, but it looks like it has been restocked on the Rails website!
Of course, it’s full price now, and I wouldn’t recommend paying that much for this jacket, even though it’s a nice one. I’ll keep an eye on it and let you know if it goes on sale again.

That brings us to Saturday. Becca wanted me to take her and a friend to Target, so I decided it was as good a reason as any to put together a cute spring outfit. I first grabbed the grey tee, and I started to reach for a pair of bluejeans, but I decided I was tired of wearing bluejeans so I pulled out my white Mother Insiders instead.
Of course, I still managed to wear bluejeans… in the form of a blue jean jacket. I do love my denim!
I think next time I’ll try this outfit with my yellow denim jacket. That never occurred to me at the time, but I think it would be really cute with the white jeans and grey tee. Oh, and hey! It’s on sale at Zappos, but there are only a few sizes left. You can find more sizes here.
I wore this floral blouse with dark wash blue jeans to church on Sunday. The blouse sold out weeks ago, but here’s the same one in a different print.
Someone recently asked which jeans I like better — the AG Prima cigarette ankle jeans (seen here) or the AGOLDE Toni straight ankle jeans I’ve been wearing a lot lately. I prefer the Toni because they’re a couple inches shorter (which is really more of a crop than an ankle length) and almost an inch higher in the rise, but I’ve held onto this pair of Primas because I like the dark wash. Sometimes they come in handy!
After church, I changed into a t-shirt and bluejeans to host friends on the deck. It was supposed to be our first official pool party of the season, but it was rather overcast. The kids still got in, though, so I guess it counts.
Monday was a long WFH (work from home) day. I didn’t go anywhere except to an early morning workout. After that, I showered off and threw on jean shorts and a tank top so I could sit outside and get some sun when I had a break.
I like these higher neck tanks because my chest always burns, and I have a lot of sun damage from it. I like the extra protection because I don’t always remember to sunscreen my chest.
Yesterday was another WFH day, and I also had to run out to vote in our local elections. It was hotter than Monday, and I put on shorts again with the intent of sitting outside for a while, but that never happened.
And that’s it for this week. The next couple of weeks will likely be a lot more of the same casual looks, as there isn’t much on our calendar at the moment. I will probably start doing these posts every other week for a while.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a post about summer sandals, and I’ve got a try-on haul in the works for Friday, so stay tuned for that!
