Hi friends! These Wednesdays seem to roll around around faster and faster, don’t they? Today I’m rounding up my daily outfits from the past couple of weeks, or since we’ve been home from Florida.
The weather is still very back and forth over here, as it is in many parts of the country, so once again there are a lot of transition looks in here. What can you do? As I always say, this is real life I’m living here.
What I Wore Lately
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and usually wear a small in tops, but I’m in between a 28 and 29 in jeans. Gifted items are indicated by c/o; everything else I purchased myself.
This first outfit is what I wore to church on Easter Sunday, the day after we got home from Florida. It was chilly and damp, and I struggled to come up with an outfit that seemed fitting for Easter but not too summery for our weather. I finally settled on this. The beige pumps are like 10 years old, but they still come in handy from time to time!
Even though it was quite chilly, I was warm enough with my LOFT trench, which made me very happy! I felt like I looked seasonally appropriate and was still comfortable for the unusually chilly weather.
After church, I changed into this comfy outfit for the rest of the day. We just grilled steaks here at home and took it easy.
I had a photo shoot the next day, and afterwards I put on this easy outfit to work from home.
Tuesday was yet another day spent mostly working here at home, and then my daughter and I drove down to visit Paul’s mom that evening. I pulled on the same jeans from the day before, but the weather was a little bit colder, so I wore this slightly heavier sweatshirt and my trusty P448 sneakers.
And Wednesday was more of the same. That was the day my Mother Hustlers came in the mail, and I was trying to decide if I wanted to keep them or not, so I threw them on with this sweater to see if they were the right size, and I ended up wearing them for most of the day.
I tried them with a few different shoes to make sure I liked them with flats as well as heels, but I guess I didn’t take any pictures except this one.
I also snapped this pic after my walk/run that morning. I figure workout clothes count here too. After all, I often spend half a day wearing them before I shower and change into real clothes.
I had a mani/pedi on Thursday, and I threw on my Maine sweatshirt again, this time with crop flares so I could easily roll them up to soak my feet.
By the way, I went with OPI Cajun Shrimp this time. It’s so weird to see color on my nails after wearing white so much lately!
I wore this outfit last Friday to run to CVS for a few things, and I kept it on for most of the day. It wasn’t really THAT warm, but I was so excited to see the sun, I took advantage of the opportunity to wear sandals and a sleeveless top.
Paul and I made last minute dinner plans for that evening, and I considered wearing this same outfit with my Kork-Ease heels.
I couldn’t find a layering piece I liked with that outfit, though, and it wasn’t really warm enough for a sleeveless top that night. We were running late, so I just changed into this old standby.
I feel like I wear this outfit too much, but I wanted to wear closed toe shoes, and this jacket works so well with these clogs. Besides pumps, these clogs are the only heels with a closed toe that I really like right now. I refuse to wear booties; in fact, I packed them all away.
I also changed into my AG Mari jeans. The Mother Hustlers would have looked fine, but they were starting to cut into my waist, so I wanted to wear a slightly lower rise.
Does anyone else find that a certain rise of jeans can cause a stomach ache? I was much more comfortable in the AG jeans; I could tell the difference almost immediately.
Marrakesh Morrison jacket (S) // Michael Stars tee (S) // AG Mari in 15 years wash (28) // Kork-Ease clogs (8) // Tory Burch Miller hobo // AllSaints belt (M) // rag & bone sunnies // Baublebar chain necklace // Anthro hoops
The next day, I needed to go to the mall for a few things, and my daughter came along with me. She wanted the driving time, as she’s trying to accrue the 60 hours she needs to test for her driver’s license. #holdme
This jacket is the same as the one I wore in Monday’s post, but it’s a size larger and obviously a different color. I usually prefer it with a white tee underneath, but my lighter colored bra was in the wash, so I wore the grey tee instead.
Yes, I only have 2 bras right now. Most women find that alarming, lol! I don’t figure I need more than two — one to wear and one to wash. But one is too dark to wear under white tops.
That night, we had an outdoor school-related event to attend. I probably could should have worn what I had on, but I kind of wanted a pullover so I could add a jacket on top if it got cold later in the evening.
I’ve packed away all my winter sweaters, a sweatshirt seemed too casual, and I was tired of the 525 cable sweater, so I pulled out this Everlane cotton v-neck that I’ve had for a few years. I always wear it a lot in the springtime.
The ivory loafer mules seemed rather bland with a grey sweater, so I switched into these Tory Burch Minnie travel flats that are also a few years old. If this outfit looks familiar, I used to wear these shoes a lot with this grey sweater and my AG Farrah skinnies in a similar wash.
I feel like the Mother Dazzlers bring the outfit up to date… or close enough, anyway. I don’t wear ballet flats very often these days, but I love these, and I feel like they’re a classic at this point.
Also, I wore these Sheec ultra low no show socks, and they worked great! You can’t see them, and they did not slide off, all night long. I wore them mainly to protect my pedicure, but I also appreciated how comfortable they are. Maybe I’ll become a sock-wearer yet!
Sunday was the warmest day we’ve had here in a while, and I really wanted to wear a spring outfit, but it felt early for sandals, even though it’s the end of April. I tried on a bunch of different shoes, both open and closed.
The brown Kork-Ease heels seemed to dark and heavy, the linen loafer mules seemed to casual and not feminine enough with the floral blouse. The braided slides seemed to summery, and they accentuate how lily white my feet are.
The silver wedges are several years old, and I’ve always loved them with white jeans, so they were my favorites of the lot, but I ended up putting back on the Tory Burch ballet flats from the day before. They work okay with this outfit, but they’re kind of casual.
I came downstairs wearing the ballet flats, but when I saw that my daughter was wearing sandals, I told her I would too and changed back to the silver wedges.
I was annoyed by the silver hardware on the jacket with the gold hardware on the blouse, but I didn’t want that to be a deal breaker, so I threw on a bunch of mixed metal jewelry.
Unfortunately, the Madewell necklace set is sold out. It’s always my go-to when I’m wearing both gold and silver metals in my outfit. The Stella & Dot cuff is old as well, but they usually have some on eBay.
And that brings us to Monday. I broke out one of my favorite spring outfits, going on four seasons now. I got these pants back in April of 2019.
And I took this pic that morning when I got back from my walk/run because these leggings are really good, if you need workout leggings. They have a comfortable, high waist that doesn’t slide down when I run; and they’re nice and thick and very flattering.
Yesterday, I wore this simple t-shirt and jeans. I picked up a few of these ATM tees in other colors when I found them on sale at Saks Off Fifth. Size up, if ordering.
I was pretty chilly wearing that, so I ended up putting my Pranayama Wrap on top.
And that’s it for this week! Or the past 10 days, I guess. It is verrrrry gradually warming up here over the next week or so.
We should have highs in the 60s most days, so I’m hoping to start wearing more of my cute tops and sandals! Meanwhile, I sure am glad for clogs and loafer mules to get through this in between season.
