Hi friends! It’s Wednesday, and that means time for What I Wore Lately! Our weather has been unseasonably cool this fall… more like what we always expect fall weather to feel like.
I’m actually loving it, but I feel like I went straight from wearing t-shirts and shorts to sweaters and jeans. I haven’t had a lot of opportunities to create cute layered looks.
All that to say, I feel like I’m already apologizing for how similar all my daily outfits are, but maybe I just need to accept the fact that this is how I roll and own it. I just like simple outfits, and since I spend so much time at home, it’s easy to resort to a seasonal uniform.
Seasonal Uniform Exhibit A: Cashmere sweater and jeans with loafer mules. This is pretty much all I want to wear from October through February… and March and April if the weather is as fickle as it usually is that time of year.
I picked up this Vince cashmere sweater at Saks OFF 5TH back in the summer. This is one of the thickest, plushest cashmere sweaters I’ve ever put on my person. Not all cashmere is created equal… Not even all Vince cashmere is created equal, as a matter of fact, but this piece is sublime. I did tell you all about it at the time, but unfortunately sizes are picked over now.
The next day was a photo shoot day, and I kept this outfit on and wore it the rest of the day, but I never thought to get a mirror selfie when I got home. I remember running some errands in the afternoon and taking the jacket off because it was quite warm. That’s the nice thing about a graphic tee/jacket combo, it’s a fun outfit even without the jacket.
Sundry graphic tee (S) // KUT from the Kloth Kara in Chestnut (M) // Fidelity Denim (28; similar) // Veja Esplar (39) // LV Neverfull MM (option/option) // AllSaints belt (M; similar) // YSL sunnies (similar for less)
This was a Saturday, and I had to drop off a meal for a high school marching band event, then I came back home and worked all day.
I really don’t know why I bothered putting on jewelry… at least the necklace and bracelets. I almost always wear earrings, even if I’m home alone all day in pajamas. And I didn’t even realize I was wearing my Airpods until I went to upload these pictures. #ooops
We didn’t go to church that Sunday because we just found out Paul was sick and didn’t want to risk spreading anything, and I just wore workout clothes all day. I’m sure I took Savannah for a walk or two.
Then I got showered and dressed on Monday even though I wasn’t going anywhere, simply because it made me feel more productive. At least this time, I remembered to pull my Airpod out of my ear before I took this picture.
This was Tuesday, and I just took a few walks in the neighborhood and worked for the rest of the day. Thus, the activewear. I slept in my jewelry, which is the only reason I had it on.
I had a photo shoot on Wednesday, and I curled my hair for a video. (Stay tuned for more on that!) I wore this outfit for the rest of the day.
Last Thursday was my biweekly nail appointment, and I wore this Vuori matching set. I took Savannah for a walk first; that’s why she is sitting at attention at my feet! She was waiting patiently for her walk.
Then I met a friend for lunch on Friday. I was so excited to have somewhere to go and get dressed for, and I wanted to use the opportunity to wear something fun and different, but I ended up back in that same Vince sweater. For some reason, nothing else was coming together, so I reverted back to what is easy and familiar.
At least, I wore it with flares this time, and I like how the light colored boots bookend the look. I also added a fun mixed stone necklace for interest. Unfortunately, it’s from last year, and it’s sold out.
I wore a plaid wool coat on top, but it’s also from last year. Since I was already downstairs and running late, I snapped a quick pic in front of my foyer mirror.
That brings us to last Saturday, and the Homecoming Dance. I was planning to hang out with friends after I sent Becca off, so I once again grabbed an easy, comfortable combo — this ivory fisherman sweater and crop straight leg jeans.
I wore my loafer mules while I was at home, but when it came time to leave for my friends’ house, I realized it was getting chilly, so I threw my J.Crew Excursion Vest and switched into sneakers. I didn’t get a picture of that, though. I also wore this EBY tank underneath for an extra layer of warmth.
When I went to get ready for church on Sunday, I first put on this tried and true outfit, but then I realized how cold and damp it was outside.
So I switched into a sweater and booties, and I grabbed the same necklace and earrings from Friday.
These jeans are black, by the way. I love camel and black together. And the brown boots are new. I like the lower heel, and they’re really comfortable. I wore these Sheec socks with them, but when I went to search for them to link for you, I discovered these fleece lined ones. I think I need to order those!
I grabbed my trench coat instead of a wool coat because it was threatening rain. This trench coat is from LOFT last year, and it doesn’t look like they brought it back, but I found a similar style at Mango. I love a single breasted coat; it’s much more slimming than double breasted styles.
And then this was Monday… and most of yesterday too. It was cold and rainy, and I didn’t do anything other than work out at the gym and then work from home the rest of the day. It sounds gross, but we lift heavy and rest between sets, and I really don’t sweat that much.
I just got the new Vuori Performance Hoodie 2.0. They made it with a slightly more relaxed fit, and it’s a smidge shorter. I like it so much better than the original! Of course, they raised the price too. Prices on everything are going up, I’ve noticed. Le sigh…
We had a marching band event last night at the high school, so I finally rallied and put myself together. It’s been a rainy few days, but it was dry last night and not terribly cold either, which was nice since we were outside.
I wore this faux leather puffer from last year over top the Treasure & Bond thermal from the #NSale. I’m not sure why I didn’t wear the Vejas with the black logo; I just grabbed the P448s because they’re comfy.
And that’s it for this week! I’ll try for more variety for the next one. I have so much stuff that I need to unpack and try on, so hopefully I’ll find some fun new pieces that are well stocked!
