What I Wore Lately Vol. 82

Greetings and salutations! I’ll be up and out early today to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I cannot WAIT! It’s always a fun day, especially now that the girls go with me. They’re looking forward to it almost as much as I am.

I’ll definitely be sharing on my Instagram Story along the way, and tomorrow I hope to have the first round of Dressing Room Selfies ready to share with you. Meanwhile, I’m rounding up my daily outfits from the past few weeks.

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

This outfit is from the Wednesday three weeks ago. I had a photo shoot that morning, and I wore this for the rest of the day. Alison took this picture for me before she left.

ATM tee (M) // 7FAM Midroll Destroy c/o (28; similar for less) // Marc Fisher slides (8) // LV Graceful PM // Kendra Scott earrings // VE Toledo mini cuff c/o // similar pendant

I went for a walk that evening, and I snapped a pic since I was wearing new workout clothes.

The next day, I met a friend for breakfast.

That was the weekend my dad was in town, and we went for a morning run/walk together on Friday morning. My face is white from my sunscreen, lol.

After that, we ran some errands before coming back to the house and hanging out by the pool.

Caslon tee (S) // 7FAM Midroll Destroy c/o (28; similar for less) // Tory Burch Millers // Kendra Scott hoops // Evereve necklace c/o // Victoria Emerson bracelet c/o

The next day was Saturday, and it was overcast and a bit cooler, so we decided to take a day trip out to Lancaster County. I pulled on this yellow tee and my Mother Hustlers in the Au Revoir wash because I love the color combination.

Then I got it in my head to try it with white jeans.

I went back to my closet, planning to swap the white sandals for taupe or beige, and my eyes landed on these turquoise Born slides. I thought I’d give them a try, and I was surprised by how much I like this color combination! This is what I ended up wearing.

Sunday was church, and you may notice I got a new mirror. My last one was warped, so my pictures were getting distorted. This one is much better.

We had a graduation party to attend that evening, and the weather was kind of mild, so I went for a sweater and shorts combo.

Monday was my first appointment with the endodontist because of the pain I’ve been having with hot or cold food or beverage.

Milo in Maine tee (M) // Mother Dazzlers (29) // Birks (39) // Lagos earrings // Lagos bracelet, bracelet // LV Graceful PM

The next day, I took the girls to the mall, and I wore a jacket because I’m always cold in the mall.

I had my root canal the next morning, and that afternoon, I had a hair appointment to cover my grey roots. I brought my laptop along with me so I could work while my hair color was setting.

Treasure & Bond tee (S) // Paige Mayslie joggers (28) // Dolce Vita slides (8) // Lagos earrings // coin necklace // Goyard  tote

I went back to the endodontist on Friday because the root canal didn’t fix my mouth pain. I didn’t even bother with contacts or makeup.

LOFT linen tee (sold out) //  Mother Hustlers (28) // Dolce Vita slides (8; also at Nordstrom)

My tooth issue didn’t get resolved, but that didn’t prevent me from going on vacation. This was my travel outfit for our trip “down the Shore!”

That Sunday morning, I went for a run on the boardwalk.

Vuori Energy top (M) // Brooks running shorts (M) // Brooks Ghost 14 (9) // running cap // Tifosi sunglasses

We spent the rest of the day on the beach. My swim coverup is on sale, by the way.

Monday was a little cooler, and it was threatening rain. We went to the beach for a little while in the morning, and then we went to the boardwalk for lunch. This sweater is on major sale, and I love it. Unfortunately, my cute striped canvas bag sold out.

It warmed up on Tuesday, and it was gorgeous for the rest of the week. We spent most of Tuesday on the beach.

That night, we had dinner at the house and then went to the boardwalk for ice cream, and we ended up riding the ferris wheel. That was fun!

Good Vibes tee (sold out) // Wit & Wisdom shorts (6) // Dolce Vita slides (8; also at Nordstrom) // VE bracelet c/o // Kate Spade sunnies // Lagos earrings

Wednesday was the day I spent working on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview post, and I ended up doing the Saks OFF 5TH and Evereve sale posts as well. I don’t even remember what I wore that day.

We went out to dinner that night, and I wore white jeans with this cute pink top from Evereve.

We spent Thursday on the beach again, and I wore the same red swimsuit and white coverup as earlier in the week. I love this for a 4th of July poolside look.

We went out to dinner again that night, and I wore the same white jeans with a different Evereve top. This one is from last year, though, so it’s sold out. I linked it anyway, in case you want the details to search on eBay or Poshmark.

Friday was our last day on the beach, but I didn’t take a picture of my swimsuit that day. That evening, we went to the boardwalk for dinner, and to shop and walk around. I bought Shriver’s fudge and Johnson’s popcorn. #iykyk

And then the next Saturday morning, we left bright and early for home.

Milo in Maine tee // 7FAM Midroll Destroy c/o (28; similar for less) //Dolce Vita slides (8) // Goyard tote

I wore this Eileen Fisher dress to church on Sunday. I bought this dress during the 2019 #NSale… it just goes to show how some of my #NSale purchases have been my best investments.

And I think they’re bringing it back!!!! Take a look… it’s not available in the same pretty raspberry color, but the styling looks very similar.

Monday was the 4th, and my 50th birthday party! I debated what to wear, and even ran out to Anthropologie that morning to pick up a beach wrap, in case I decided to wear this swimsuit/sarong combo.

Bleu Rod Beattie swimsuit (8; also at Nordstrom) // Anthropologie beach wrap // Dolce Vita sandals (8) // Kendra Scott hoops

While I was there, I looked around for a special top I could pair with white shorts, but the best I could find was this printed ruffle sleeve tee. I like it, and I’m keeping it, but I wasn’t sure it’s what I wanted to wear for my 50th birthday/4th of July party.

I also picked up a pair of navy linen shorts, thinking they might pair well with this Frame tee for a simple but elevated shorts outfit. I like the shorts, but they have a very high rise, and front-tucking this top didn’t quite look right.

I tried tucking it in all around, but that didn’t work either. All together, I felt like there was too much volume, and it just wasn’t the vibe I was going for.

I also tried that tee with jean shorts. This is a better combo, but it felt too casual for what I wanted, and I’m just not 100% sold on this shirt. I like it from the front, but it’s kind of long in the back, and there’s just too much material or something.

I almost gave up finding something special and just wore what I wore to Anthro, which is this navy top and white shorts. At least it looks 4th of July festive.

Caslon top (S) // Wit & Wisdom shorts (6) // Dolce Vita slides (8; also at Nordstrom) // earrings

But then my eyes landed on that French Connection dress hanging on the rolling rack in my bedroom. I wasn’t sure if I was keeping it or returning it, so it hadn’t made it to my closet yet.

It wasn’t on my radar for my birthday party… maybe for my birthday dinner out with Paul at a French restaurant this coming weekend, or when we go out with friends sometime. I threw it on and went downstairs to see what Paul and the girls thought about it.

And the rest, as they say, is history! They loved it, and while I was afraid it was a little much for our casual gathering, they convinced me to wear it, and I’m glad I did. It definitely made me feel a little bit more like the birthday girl, haha!

I hate my posture in this picture, but it was hard enough to get those balloons lined up right, so this is the best picture we got. 🤪 I actually got two sets of these — my assistant, Amy, sent me a box of cupcakes with silver 50 balloons attached to it, and Becca got me these gold ones. It worked out perfectly because we had a set in the backyard by the pool, and another out front tied to our mailbox.

I kept the bathing suit/beach wrap combo as a backup outfit, thinking I might change into that later on if I decided to go in the pool, but I never did. Everyone went swimming during the first half of the party, and they never went back in after dinner. It will come in handy, though. I was wishing I had one when I was at the beach.

Yesterday was full of appointments, including the endodontist and my chiropractor. (I jacked up my neck again on vacation, and while it was getting better, I went ahead with my appointment.) I just wore these Vuori favorites since they are comfortable.

And that’s it! I’m off to shop the #NSale! I will bring you along with me on Instagram, and I hope to get my Dressing Room Selfies post up at some point tomorrow. I also have a photo shoot with Alison in the morning, so I’ll have to see how it goes. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. Does the French Laundry dress run small?
    I was surprised that you are in a 10.
    Love the dress and the only size they have left is a 10.

  2. I always enjoy these posts! Sometimes I think I should bite the bullet and just try the Mother Insider Dancing on Coals jeans even though I don’t think they’re ever on sale. I love the wash and the distressing. My only issue is, being 5’0″ I know they’d need hemming, and I don’t know if the Nordstrom tailors could mimic the current hemming. Also, as much as I love distressing, sometimes the knee distressing just doesn’t look right, since it’s NOT at the knee on me. So I’ll continue to think about it. 😀

    Really looking forward to your Insta-stories today too. There are several things I’m looking forward to. I’m interested in seeing what you think of the AllSaints Kiera sweater (the one with the tattered hem). I love the look of it. Have fun!

    1. I hear ya. Lindsey on The Mom Edit is petite, and she wears these. You might want to see how they fit her. They definitely can’t shorten them and save that chewed hem.

  3. I love seeing your beach photos! How comfortable are the Dolce Vita woven sandals? I love the look, but tend to avoid flat sandals. I’ve had the Tory Burch Miller sandals for 7 or 8 years but I don’t wear them too often — just for the beach, the pool, pedicures and I always pack them for trips– because they are so darned flat.
    I can’t wait to see what you find at Nordy’s today!

  4. The white dress for your birthday was a great choice! Loved seeing all your outfits especially from vacation! How is your tooth now?
    Happy Nordstrom shopping.. I’ll be watching Instagram for your finds.

  5. Love these posts! I like theMichael Stores red tank top you wore. The sizing says one size fits a range of sizes which surprises me. What did you think of the fit? I’m 5’1” and normally wearing a size 2. Thank you!

    1. Happy birthday! I recently had a birthday and posted for a photo similar to yours. I was holding “60” gold balloons, and wearing the black evereve jumpsuit you shared earlier this year. Thank you for such a good blog! I find a lot of my clothes from your blog and also discovered Adore Your Wardrobe through you, I believe.

  6. This was great post. Loved seeing everything. The white dress was fabulous as was the swimsuit coverup/swimsuit. It all looks good on you.

    I’m headed back to work today after a week off with a nasty sinus infection & cough. I’m better, but about now wishing I had not come out of retirement. Lol.

    Can’t wait to see you goodies from the Nordstrom Sale.

  7. Love all these, especially the black swimsuit and coverup from Anthropology. I want to order this coverup but it says dry clean only. What do you think about that? You look great btw.

  8. I love your “birthday dress”,and the swimsuit and sarong. Thanks for sharing beach pictures. I know you all had a blast!

  9. I love theses WIWL posts! I actually changed my shoe choice this morning after seeing one of your outfits 😂
    Random non-fashion question, if I may: Our youngest recently moved to the Harrisburg area. She loves her some Amish Country but can’t figure out where to find it haha
    Is there a particular town or area that has several shops etc? They have three littles under 6 so she doesn’t really want to spend the day getting in and out of the car.

  10. I have to say, I like every single post. You look great in all you styled. I think you really are honing in on your style and the combo’s you choose. Great post. I always wished I had purchased that blue and white tie dyed shirt. I love it on you with white. Its good to see you style grab older items to wear. I have lots of things in my closet I wear from years ago. Your vacation trip pictures are great. I love you swimsuits and the white cover-up looks amazing on you. So glad you were able to get away and still enjoy the trip, despite your tooth and eye pain. By the way……how is your tooth? What did the ortho. say? How is your eye? Have fun at the Nordstrom Sale. I bet its fun with your girls. I can’t wait to see what you find. Its always so helpful for shopping.

    1. The tooth — or the pain I’m having, whether it’s the tooth or not, we don’t know — is the same. It’s frustrating. He wants me to try not sleeping with my retainer. He thinks it may be too tight? I dunno… I think he’s grasping at straws.

  11. PS Forgot to mention your white dress for your b’day. Great choice. It looks great and your b’day picture is so nice.

  12. These posts are always good! Sorry to hear your tooth issue is ongoing—how miserable. I know you’re about to be incredibly busy with the Nordstrom sale, but would you ever consider doing a post on your beach area/trip? I live in the South, where we typically visit the Gulf Coast areas for our beach fix, and those don’t really have boardwalks. I’d love to read about areas y’all enjoy going to—and I’m hoping I’ll be in Philly next summer for a bit & would love to detour to one of your beaches. Just have no clue where to go. Happy belated birthday too & that dress was such a nice choice!

  13. The Dolce Vita Leanna Strappy Sandal description says they run small. Did you size up at all? I’m trying to decide if I should size up half or a whole since I usually size up half in this type shoe even when they don’t run small. Thanks!

  14. Your white dress outfit was perfect for your birthday party! You look so tan and beautiful! 🌺☀️💕 Can’t wait to see you NSale pics!

  15. My word, I love all of the outfits on you and you got some tan! My favorite is the swimsuit and sarong and the white dress, hopefully your tooth problem has improved. I checked out the Brooks shoes, needing a new pair; do you know the color pattern? They appear to be predominately white which I would prefer.

  16. I love these posts also! You look great and I love your sense of style! That white dress for your birthday was a great choice!

  17. That white dress looks so fabulous on you..a perfect choice.
    And I still love that Eileen Fisher dress. Sorry I didn’t buy that color when it was available. Sometimes you miss out when you take too long to decide. I am learning.

  18. These are my favorite posts! I so appreciate your hard work and dedication. I’m hoping and praying your tooth issues get straightened out soon. I know how awful that pain is and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. I wanted so bad to buy the sweater and the hoodie from Evereve. I just love them. You look fabulous and I hope you had the most wonderful birthday!
