Happy hump day, friends! I’m slogging through another week over here, and today I rounded up my outfits from the past couple of weeks. I’ve had quite a few “grace days” recently, where I don’t really do much besides pull on comfy clothes and stick my hair in a clip, but I did wear a few summer outfits worth documenting.
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and I usually wear a small in tops, a 28 or 29 in jeans, and a size 8 shoe. Gifted items are indicated by c/o; everything else I purchased myself.
What I Wore Lately
Nothing new or exciting here, I wore this familiar outfit to get a mani/pedi. The jeans and tee are some of my most worn spring/summer wardrobe staples because the fit and feel is so good, and these Birks are new this season. I love unexpected color.
I had a photo shoot the next morning, and then I met a friend for lunch. I paired my new washable silk tee with white ankle flares and added neutral flat sandals, but I wish I’d worn heels. I have so many cute wedge sandals that would have elevated this look.
When I got home, I tried a few other shoe options, and I like any of these better than the flat sandals that I wore. Not only do they level up the look, I also like these jeans better with heels. They’re an awkward length with flats.
The next day was the Saturday we went to Knoebels, where my daughter performed with our high school jazz band. It was a beautiful, sunny day with warm temperatures and low humidity. I pulled out this tie dye tank from last summer and paired it with my favorite denim shorts. And I have good news! I just found these shorts at Saks OFF 5th for a lot less! They are true to size.
The following Sunday, I wore this Eileen Fisher dress again. It’s from the 2019 #NSale and still going strong! I linked a similar style in the same color.
We had friends over that night for dinner, and I changed into this casual skirt and muscle tee.
I didn’t do much with myself the next couple of days, but my daughter and I went to the mall last Wednesday, so I took the opportunity to wear this new top that I just got in from Evereve.
Last Friday, I pulled on this top and shorts to run some errands after a photo shoot. I snagged this Frame linen tee for a great deal at Saks OFF 5th. I love a good linen tee in the summertime, and this color is a bit different for me. Unfortunately, it’s almost sold out.
Paul and I went out to dinner that night, and I tried on about 110 outfits before I settled on a simple white tee and jeans with some fun accessories. I was struggling to find something i was comfortable in. I’ve been having issues with my clothes fitting recently… ahem. Plus, I wanted to wear something fun for our first “date night” in a while, but everything is so casual around here, I always end up feeling overdressed. I finally decided to keep it simple, but here are some of the options I tried.
This the outfit I finally landed on, and yes, I know it’s very simple. But when I got to the restaurant, I was glad I toned it down a bit because everyone was pretty casual. Even this, with the heels and statement jewelry, felt a bit much.
But yay, I finally got to wear my bootcut jeans! I am so happy these are coming back into style… although I will say, I don’t see them much around here just yet.
This is what I wore to church last Sunday. Nothing new here, but this classic Eileen Fisher tank dress is on sale! I recommend sizing down.
I changed into this comfy outfit for the afternoon and to hang out with friends that evening.
I mostly worked from home on Monday, but we had friends over for a dinner on the deck that evening. I kept it casual with a graphic tee and denim shorts.
And this tried and true outfit is from yesterday. I had three appointments, and I was running all over the tri-county area. I brought my laptop along (thus the gigantic tote) in case I had a chance to work in between. (Which I did not. Traffic is getting crazy around here lately! Everyone is going somewhere.) These pieces are old, but the pants are still available.
Then we had a church dinner to attend last night, and I was worried I’d be hot in the pants outside, so I changed but I kept the olive and black theme going. I also decided to dunk my head in the sink and wash and blow dry my hair. It was looking pretty ratchet.
And that’s it for this installment of What I Wore Lately! I know it’s all pretty casual, life hasn’t been terribly eventful lately. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
