Hi friends! It’s time for another What I Wore Lately, where I share my everyday outfits and talk a little bit about where I wore them and how they came together. This one’s a doozie because it’s almost 3 weeks worth of outfits, so I’ll try to keep the chatter light.
Okay, who am I kidding? I never keep the chatter light. You might want to grab another cup of coffee. It’s a long one!
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and I usually wear a small in tops and dresses, a 29 in jeans, and a size 8 shoe. Gifted items are indicated by c/o; everything else I purchased myself.
What I Wore Lately: 3 Weeks of Everyday Outfits
This first outfit harkens back to the first day of the month. I met a friend at the mall, and then we went to lunch afterwards. I decided to wear the Rails Josie cardigan with light wash denim instead of black, for a change.
I always seem to reach for black jeans when I wear this sweater to coordinate with the black buttons, but I also really love how the bright pink pairs with the light wash denim.
I just couldn’t decide which boots to wear… grey in keeping with the light color palette, or black to coordinate with the buttons on the sweater and the color of my hair.
Style Tip: Matching shoes to your hair bookends your look and is one way to keep your looks polished and pulled together.
Even though I like the bookend concept, I decided to go with the grey boots this time, and I wore a grey coat to coordinate.
When we were at the mall that day, I picked up this blue sweater from Everlane, and I wore it the next day with a different pair of light wash jeans. These are a straighter style than the ones above, and one of my favorite jeans to wear with flat shoes.
Aaaaaand another simple look with a luxe pullover, straight leg jeans, and loafers. I never get tired of this neutral color combo, the luxe oatmeal sweater and washed black jeans.
The loafers keep it classic and understated, and I added the chunky layered necklaces and chunky hoops to keep the look current.
This was just a casual Saturday at home… It was cold and rainy and miserable, and I had nowhere to go, so I just threw on cozies and worked from the couch for most of the day.
The next day was Sunday, and this is what I wore to church. I decided to wear pants instead of jeans for a change.
But I ended up changing into jeans and booties before going out for dinner because I knew I’d be walking a lot, and while those pumps are comfortable, they’re not really conducive to talking very far downtown.
I didn’t think to try the boots with the pants, but they might have worked. I wore a black coat to match the black boots. (I wore this coat to church with the pants outfit, too.)
I took this picture before going out for a run/walk because this jacket hasn’t gotten much airtime lately. I usually wear the Athleta Inlet Jacket, but it was a mild day, so I pulled this one out instead.
It’s super flattering, stretchy through the back and arms, with that quilted wind-resistant panel on the front. Also, these thermal leggings are only $25.
I worked for most of the day in this old sweatshirt and my favorite jeans.
This was another comfy work-from-home day…
I had an early morning photo shoot the next day, and then I wore the last outfit we photographed to Bible Study. It’s the same jeans and boots from Sunday, but I went with a neutral sweater and my new Mango wrap coat.

Here’s the sweater and jeans without the coat, but I actually kept the coat on the whole time I was at the church because it was chilly inside. It’s almost like wearing a long cardigan.
This is how the coat looks tied, for those who like to see that. It definitely gives off some bathrobe vibes, but I still kind of like it for a change!
I had a hair appointment that night, so I switched into sneakers and shorter jeans. It was chilly, so I threw on socks too.
Socks with sneakers and ankle jeans has been a recent topic of debate/discussion, so I tried to zoom in on them. I like how the camel color almost looks like my skin, and it creates some subtle contrast between the jeans and sneakers.
Of course, that color appears to be sold out. I also have these socks in grey and ivory, and I’ve worn ivory with this denim/shoe combo. I like it, but I like the camel better.
I threw my hair in a clip the next day, and I wore another casual pullover and jeans and sneakers to accompany my daughter to the hospital for a minor procedure.
We’ve since learned that she has Celiac Disease. This is the culmination of several months of testing since she was diagnosed with mono and iron deficiency anemia back in the fall. It’s not the news we wanted, but we ruled out some pretty scary things, so I guess we’ll take it.
And also, aren’t these Gola sneakers are so fun? I love the colors.
The next day I had a mani/pedi appointment to prepare for my trip to Florida, but it was cold and rainy… thus the cashmere sweater and flip flop combo. I actually went to the grocery store dressed like that afterwards. I felt ridiculous, but whatcha gonna do!?!
These jeans are new. I’m well on my way to having every style of MOTHER denim they make! The Tomcat is a little more relaxed through the leg than the Dazzler, and about an inch shorter, so more of a cropped style. I think they’re going to be nice for summer.
If you’re a MOTHER denim fan and tend to get confused with their various styles, I did a MOTHER Denim Review that you might find helpful. I’m going to need to update that, now that I’ve tried a few more of their styles!
This was the day I got my spray tan for Miami… can you tell? Ha! I had to go out that night for my daughter’s band event, so I pulled on another cozy sweater and jeans and my white Sorel Chelsea boots.
Paul makes fun of me every time I wear these shoes. I guess he thinks they look a little ridiculous? I love them, though, and they’re sooo comfy. One of the other moms at the band event told me my boots were cute, so maybe it’s just him.
I went to the mall the next day to get a few last minute items for my Miami trip, and since it was Valentine’s Day weekend, I felt like more pink was in order!
As you can see, I decided to pair this sweater with black jeans this time. (I did add jewelry before I left.) Also, there are a few sizes left in these boots, and they’re 50% off.
It wasn’t as cold that day, and I didn’t want to deal with a heavy coat in the mall, so I went with my The North Face trench. I wish they still sold this exact one; it is so good. It’s basically a rain coat that looks nicer than a rain coat. I’ve had it for at least 5 years, judging by the date of this post, and it still looks like new.
And that brings us to Super Bowl Sunday! I flew to Miami that afternoon, so of course I had to represent.
I did a separate post about What I Wore In Miami, so I won’t include those outfits here. I figured it made more sense to keep this post to what I’m wearing here in Philly this month.
I like the shorter length with the sneakers and the cropped sweater, but the rise is a little too low and I’d need a tank underneath to avoid baring my midsection every time I move my arms, so I switched into the AGOLDE Riley.
That’s actually what I wore during the day, but before we left, I decided to change into boots to dress the look up just a bit. They’re still casual, but I felt like they looked more appropriate, and I like the extra height when I’m standing around talking to people.
That brings us to last Sunday, and this is what I wore to church.
I had Paul grab a quick iPhone photo with my coat on outside while we waited for our daughter to get to the car.
Said daughter wanted to go prom dress shopping that afternoon, so I changed into more comfy clothes. It turned out to be a mild afternoon, so I didn’t even wear a coat.
Prom dress shopping was a success, by the way. We need to have some alterations made, but she got her dress! What a racket. I can’t believe how much those things cost.
I didn’t do anything with myself on Monday because I just worked from home all day, but yesterday I had my weekly Bible study… which I ended up missing because I got caught up dealing with some technological difficulties. I did get dressed for it, though!
I wanted to wear a neutral outfit with these wide leg pants in the bone color and an ivory or oatmeal sweater, but as it turns out, the pants are much warmer than the sweaters I have, and I didn’t like the colors together.
It’s only about an inch shorter than the ones above, but it works much better, and I prefer the contrast of the navy and bone.
And that’s it for this week! Or, I guess, the past three weeks. It’s still quite cold here in Philly, so I’ll be wearing my winter clothes for a few more weeks. I was chilly yesterday in those crop pants, but I was dying to wear something other than jeans! Maybe I should try them with booties next time.
