Hi friends! I hope your week is going well and that you’re getting back into the swing of things after the holidays. I’ve rounded up my outfits from the last few weeks, including all my holiday looks.
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: Two Weeks of Everyday Outfits
These pictures start back the Wednesday before Christmas, and I wore this casual yet festive outfit to my daughter’s high school band Christmas concert. She plays the mallets in both the jazz band concert band, and they are both fantastic. It was a really fun night, and got us all in the Christmas spirit!
Apparently I didn’t do much the next day… I think that was the day we had some bad weather, and school was canceled, so I stayed home all day.
And this was another day with no makeup and casual clothes… I put on jeans for some reason. Maybe I ran out to do some errands.
That brings us to Christmas Eve, and the temps were in the single digits here in Philly. I dug out my coziest cashmere turtleneck, fleece-lined leggings, and Sorel boots to run some errands with Becca.
That was also Caroline’s birthday, and she requested fondue for dinner, so I used these old fondue recipes I used to make on New Year’s Eve many moons ago.
I guess I’m out of practice, because they did not turn out very good. We didn’t do the meat because it’s such a mess, but I figured the cheese and the chocolate should be easy enough… #famouslastwords. Next year, we’ll pony up and pay for The Melting Pot!
We went to church on Christmas Day, and I wore this burgundy sweater dress from Talbots.
I changed into a short-sleeve sweater and jeans to open presents after church. It was probably overdressed for it just being the 5 of us, but whatever! I wanted to look nice anyway. Everything I’m wearing here is old, so I don’t have any links.
Later that day, we made Christmas cookies, and by then I had changed into pajamas… the girls were in rare form!
Becca and I went to the mall the next day, and it was still really cold, but I didn’t want to deal with a coat, so I threw on this old cashmere turtleneck and my faux leather puffer vest from last year along with my new-ish Frame Le High Flares.
When we got home, I changed into this sweater hoodie and my Athleta Altitude pants to walk the dog and then hang out at home… I can’t remember why I changed from the turtleneck.
This is from last Wednesday; I worked from home for most of the day and then met some friends for dinner out.
I kept the same sweater but switched into flares and boots for dinner.
I also jazzed up my jewelry a bit and added a belt with a front tuck.
The next day, I was back to this outfit again… If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
I threw on this monochromatic outfit to run errands last Friday.
And then this is what I wore to host our Shane family Christmas party that afternoon. I had planned to wear the above outfit and just swap out the sneakers for pumps, but I was too hot in that sweater, so I grabbed this silk tee.
That brings us to New Year’s Eve! We were having unseasonably mild weather, so I threw on this cute graphic tee from Evereve last year.
And then I changed to host our NYE party that night. I was probably way overdressed, but I figured, why not!?!
Here are a few more fun shots from the night… I coerced Paul into getting in the NYE photo frame with me.
And then I had to get a picture with my niece because we were almost twinning. She’s wearing the Sanctuary sequin tee that I tried… it looks better on her!
And I love this one of her and Becca. Caroline and David declined the photo opp… haha!
I didn’t bother to take a picture of my outfit on New Year’s Day. I was planning to go to church, but Caroline made her cinnamon rolls, and I ended up visiting with my in-laws over breakfast before they got on the road to head back home. I spent the rest of the day in activewear, cleaning up the house and working on my Year In Review, and I think I took a walk at some point.
Then yesterday, I threw on leggings and a t-shirt and vest to walk the dog and drive my niece to the airport. (The mess behind me is Paul purging his closet… *cue angels singing*)
And I guess that’s a wrap! I’m posting this late in the day on Tuesday, rather than my usual Wednesday, so I can send my email newsletter out first thing in the morning, and I don’t have anything to show for myself today. I woke up at 3:30 AM and started working, so I was ready for a nap by 10!
Once I woke up and made some lunch, I figured I wouldn’t bother making myself pretty since I had nowhere to go, and it’s such a dreary day. I’ve been dragging ever since NYE. Hopefully I feel more like myself tomorrow.
