Hi, friends! Somehow it’s Wednesday again, so I’ve rounded up what I wore lately. I didn’t realize until I went to put this post together how many times I wore the same few pieces over the past couple of weeks. Ooops!
Oh, well. This is real life I’m living here, after all. When I find something I love, I want to wear it all the time. Anyone else?
For size reference, I’m 5’5″, and I usually take a 6/28 in pants/jeans, a small in tops, and size 8 shoe. I added my sizes beside the various items I’m wearing, in case you’re trying to decide which size to order.
What I Wore Lately: Two Weeks of Casual Outfits
This first picture is one you may have seen in a recent try-on haul. I loved these jeans so much when I tried them on, I ripped the tags off and wore them for the rest of the day. I have a full review of in this post.
I did, however, play around with my footwear. I can’t remember why I wasn’t sure about the Sam Edelman loafer mules. I do like them, but I decided to try the outfit with these Dr. Scholl’s sandals.
I also added a necklace and swapped out the delicate link bracelet for this VE Faro boho cuff. This is one of my favorites, and it’s 40% off today! Victoria Emerson is doing a site-wide 40% off sale, if you’re interested.
For some reason, it felt a bit much for where I was going, so I ended up wearing my YSL espadrilles. I was able to score these on sale a few years ago, and the retail price has gone up since I purchased them, so I linked a similar pair below.
I like how the army green leather backpack adds an element of sophistication and incorporates another muted color to the outfit. The backpack was an #NSale purchase, so hopefully it will go on sale again at some point.
The next day, I had a hair appointment, so I threw on this comfy outfit. Here’s the before…
and the after. There’s nothing like a fresh cut and color!
I also wore this to the high school football game that night to see my daughter play in the marching band.
The next day was Saturday, and I ran some errands. This denim jacket is a new addition. The Vince Camuto that I wore for years finally discontinued, so I picked up this KUT from the Kloth version so I have one I can link… and it is already low inventory.
I have no idea if it’s a staple in their lineup that they will restock or not. I tried, y’all. I tried. That’s all I know to say anymore. Inventory issues are drying me bananas. #firstworldproblems
Pardon the sweat, but I figured I’d keep it real and show what I usually wear to go running… or run/walking as it usually goes these days.
We went out to eat the next day — Paul’s first restaurant outing post-surgery. I first put on this outfit, but it felt a little much for a casual lunch with the family.
So then I tried the same top with light wash jeans and more casual flat sandals. FYI, these jeans run small. I recommend sizing up one if ordering, and same for the shoes.
I just wasn’t feeling the snake print top, so I switched to this short-sleeved sweater and mules.
But I ended up in flats. You know how some people have FOMO (fear of missing out)? I think I have FOBOD (fear of being over-dressed). LOL!
Both shoes are comfortable, but we ended up doing a good bit of walking, so I was glad I had opted for the flats.
This sweatshirt is super soft and cozy, but on the thinner side, which I like. And these leggings are nice and thick but buttery-soft. Highly recommend both pieces for upscale athleisure.
But then our Internet went down, and I decided to go find free WiFi at Starbucks. I switched into this old faithful outfit. Not that I couldn’t have worn the other outfit, but it was too hot to wear the sweatshirt, and I just feel better in real pants.
I was a total schlump the next day, and there is no photographic evidence. You are welcome.
I had a photo shoot last Wednesday, and I wore this for the rest of the day to work at home. Yes, even the shoes. Evidently my FOBOD (fear of being over-dressed) doesn’t apply to inside the house, ha!
I did have a Zoom call with my assistant, so being somewhat dressed up made me feel more professional. I have to take it where I can get it!
Most of the next day was spent at home, and I wore this comfy outfit.
Then Friday was my regular mani/pedi appointment, and you’ve seen all this before.
I went out to dinner last Saturday night with friends, and I thought I wanted to wear this sleeveless sweater. I tried it first with the grey Mother Hustlers and Dr. Scholl’s sandals.
I don’t love the sandals with these jeans, for some reason, so I tried the braided mules.
This works, and I don’t know why I didn’t wear it. I actually like this a lot. The sweater makes me look a little top heavy, and the flares provide a nice balance. And the shoes have the perfect shaft height with these jeans. I’ll definitely wear this outfit sometime soon.
I also tried the Good American Good Legs Cig, which is how I photographed this sweater for the blog a couple weeks ago, but I actually think I prefer the look with the Mother Hustlers and braided mules (above).
Then I remembered the snake print tank that I felt was a little much for lunch with the family the weekend before. I put it on this time with the Frame Le High straight crop jeans in the off-black wash, but I think I might prefer it with the inky black Mother Insiders that I tried it with before. At any rate, this is how I wore it.
Of course, I tried it with a bunch of shoes before I settled on the Vince Camuto ruched flats.
The sandals seemed a little clunky to me, and made the outfit look bottom-heavy, or some reason.
The pointy toe mules look more streamlined, and I think they work, but again, they’re dark and a bit heavy with the top (due to the color and fabric, not the styling.)
So I swapped them out for the taupe ruched flats, and this was the look I ended up wearing.
That brings us to Sunday, and this is what I wore on the plane. This coated denim jacket came in from Evereve that morning (yes, it was delivered on a Sunday… crazy!) and it seemed like the perfect topper for my travel outfit.
Unfortunately, it has already sold out. I swear, I give up. I was so excited to share it with you. I did find a black denim jacket, but it’s not coated.
I wore this on Monday. Pardon the terrible lighting. It’s basically the same outfit as the one above, just with a white tee and cashmere hoodie, although I think I’d prefer a v-neck tee with this hoodie.
Of course, I generally prefer a v-neck to a crewneck anyway, but my white v-neck tee was dirty so I packed this one.
And this is what I wore yesterday. Finally getting to wear some fall clothes!
And that’s it for this edition of What I Wore Lately!
