Well, here we are with another edition of What I Wore Lately! This is when I round up my daily outfits and share a little about where I wore them and how they came together.
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ with an hourglass shape. I usually take a 6/28 in pants/jeans, a small in tops, and size 8 shoe.
What I Wore Lately
Time just keeps flying by. It seems like a month ago that I took these pictures, but it was only two weeks ago that I was out of town with my mom. I brought this matching sweatsuit and wore it almost every day at some point — either in the mornings before getting dressed for the day or in the evenings when I was winding down.
These are so soft and cozy, love them! Both pieces are the black in size small, and they’re currently 40% off + extra 15% off with code MAJOR. (Pardon the dirty mirror.)
And I wore this familiar outfit on our last day there. I’ve definitely gotten my money’s worth out of this tee! This is my second season with it, and I wear it at least once a week. It’s true to size and currently on sale at Zappos.
I wore the same outfit to travel home that I wore traveling out there. And I’m so excited to inform you that this coated denim jacket is now available! I got mine from Evereve, and it sold out right away, but this week someone in my Facebook Group found it on the KUT from the Kloth website.
It has a cropped fit, and it fits rather snug, so I recommend sizing up if in between (or if you’re tall or long-waisted) although I stuck with my regular size small. It may look stiff, but it’s actually soft and stretchy and quite comfortable.
I wore this casual outfit on a Saturday to hang out with family who was visiting from out of town, and to go to the farm stand to get fall flowers and pumpkins. My favorite Mother Insiders are currently 25% off at Bloomies!
The next day was Sunday, and when it came time to get dressed for church, I was floundering a bit. I wanted to wear fall clothes, but it was promising to be a warm afternoon, so I reached for the peacock blue Vince cashmere tee from the #NSale and paired it with my grey Mother Hustlers. First I tried them with these taupe braided braided mules.
Something about the taupe shoes with the dark top and grey jeans seemed off, so I swapped them for my black suede mules. I also gave my sweater a front tuck.
That was probably fine, but the shoes seemed kind of heavy or something. I’m not sure what it was, but I wasn’t feeling it, so I tried the same outfit with my black Mother Insiders. They’re a little dressier than the grey jeans, and also an inch or two shorter.
I remember thinking I didn’t like the contrast of the black shoes and black shoes and exposed skin, although looking at this picture, I think it’s fine — especially since the shirt is short-sleeved.
Anyway, I switched into the washed black Frame straight crop jeans, to see if I liked a softer black denim better. (FYI, these jeans are also 25% off at Bloomies right now.)
I decided it was something about the black suede Western mules that I didn’t like, so I tried my black suede R Minkoff loafer mules that are several years old. I always enjoy wearing them in the fall, but I didn’t like that look either, so I went back to the taupe mules.
Honestly, all of those outfits look fine to me in these pictures. I’m not sure what my hangup was, lol. Over-thinker much???
But I decided I wanted something lighter on top, so I ditched the peacock blue sweater and changed into this leopard tee and my Marrakech Morrison jacket. I’ve worn these together with black jeans many times, so I knew that would work, but for some reason, I wasn’t feeling the shoes. Or maybe I just wanted to wear flats… I can’t remember why, but I went back to the black suede loafer mules.
But the black suede looked too heavy for the warm September day, so I ditched those for these black leather loafer mules with the horse-bit hardware.
In retrospect, I think the taupe suede braided mules looked best of all three options. Or if I’d wanted flats, I could have worn my taupe suede ruched flats, but for better or for worse, this is the outfit I ended up wearing.
And yes, I am aware that I sound certifiable. I can’t believe I put all this crazy out there for public consumption… lol! Please tell me someone else does this when getting dressed in the morning.
The change of seasons is always the worst. Once I figure out the denim and shoe pairings that I like, I will repeat them over and over.
The next day, I had a dentist appointment. It was unseasonably warm outside, but I knew I’d be chilly in the office, so I wore this cozy wrap over a basic white tee and jeans. I threw on my favorite summer sandals, figuring it might be the last time I wear them this season.
The following day, I met up with some of the ladies at church to put together care packages for the college students in our congregation. It was overcast and threatening to rain, but still sort of warm. I first put on this outfit, and I like it.
But once I had it on and took this picture, I realized it was probably a little much for the casual gathering, so I quickly changed into this a t-shirt and sneakers. I like how the statement earrings level up this casual look, but it was still practical for the activity and the weather.
I had an early morning workout appointment the next day, and this is what I wore for most of the day. Of course, I took off the pullover while I was working out.
And I must have gone somewhere later on that required real clothes, because I changed into this casual outfit somewhere along the way.
I had a photo shoot last Friday, and I wore this athleisure look for the rest of the day. Yes, it was hot enough for sandals!
I wore this outfit to run errands on Saturday, and I was planning to keep it on and wear it to the marching band cavalcade that night, where I worked at concessions.
But my 15-y/o daughter informed me that I must wear red to support the school, or I would look like I didn’t belong. She had a point, I suppose. The only red top I own is what I affectionally call my “band mom tee” so even though there was going to be no football team on the band field that night, I put it on and wore it anyway.
I also purchased a school sweatshirt when I got to the event, but it was so warm, I didn’t need it until after my shift was over. I was really glad I had it when the sun went down, though, as I sat on those cold metal bleachers watching the 2nd half of the show.
And that brings us to last Sunday! I threw on this orange sweater with my grey Mother Hustlers and the taupe braided mules and went to church before I could overthink it, lol!
I changed after lunch to hang out at home and visit with a friend.
And this is what I wore on Monday to work from home most of the day.
And that’s a wrap! Yesterday was cool and rainy, and I never changed out of my workout clothes. I didn’t think to snap a picture, but I think it’s all sold out anyway.
I’ll be back tomorrow with this year’s My Favorite Things post! I usually post that closer to the holidays, but we decided to use it this year to launch my Holiday Gift Guides.
Amy and I’ve been hard at work behind the scenes, getting those prepped and ready to go. We’ll be rolling out about three a week until I get through all of the topics I’m planning. If you have any special requests, please let me know!
