What I Wore This Week 04.21.18
Greetings, friends! Happy weekend! Today I’m sharing what I wore over the past week. Half of the outfits are from my Florida trip last weekend, and the rest are from this week when it has been cold enough for winter sweaters and boots, so it’s quite a mix of styles!
Unfortunately the ones from Florida are pretty rough. Most were mirror selfies in our hotel room, which wasn’t well lit.
My roommate tried to get pictures of a couple of my outfits outside, but it was incredibly windy from the impending storm, and the lighting inside the hotel was pretty bad for pictures — yellow and shadowy. I tried to do some editing, but that probably just made them even more grainy.
Anyway, it is what it is! I will have some gorgeous pictures to show you when Martina sends the ones from our photo shoot! I hope to have them by the end of the week.
What I Wore This Week 04.21.18
First up, my pool outfit. I wore this 3 days out of 4. My coverup is from Amazon, and the price is different depending on the size you order, which is weird, but Amazon does that. I have the small, and it was $54 when I bought it. It’s very flattering and pretty, easy to throw on and go. Nordstrom has a bunch of La Blanca coverups if mine is sold out in your size.
I also love, love, love my rafia pool bag. There were some comments that it’s pricey for a pool bag, and I guess it is, but I bought it particularly because it’s packable. If that’s an issue for you, I think it’s worthy of your consideration. It folds up or lays out flat so you can manipulate it depending on how your suitcase is packed. Plus it’s just pretty. It has a metallic thread throughout that gives it a touch of glam. I got several compliments on it at the resort.
I wore this next outfit one night to dinner. This is the best we could do to get a picture in the dimly lit hallway. We were hoping to get a group shot at dinner, but it was so windy outside, we didn’t even try.
This was after my day of shooting photos with Martina. I’d had 5 outfit changes in various bathrooms along the way — some were air conditioned and some were not — and all sorts of windy weather, so my hair was pretty rough by this point, but I didn’t want to redo it so I went to dinner like this.
Next up, my beach outfit. No, there is no reason why I wore the coverup to the pool and the t-shirt and shorts to the beach. It just worked out that way. As cute as the coverup is, and as much as I liked it for my resort vacation, this is what I usually wear to our pool club. A coverup feels fussy, and this casual look is just more me. Plus I can run into the grocery store afterwards or anything like that if I need to, which I wouldn’t do in the coverup.
I wore this denim skirt outfit out to dinner on our last night. It was raining, so I ended up swapping out the shoes for my trusty patent leather Miller sandals, as you can see below in my picture with my friends. I wasn’t sure how the beaded sandals would hold up to a downpour.
I picked up the skirt at Saks Off Fifth when I saw it on sale. It is super soft, stretchy, and so comfy. It doesn’t bag out at all either. Love me some AG denim! The raw hem is kind of youthful, I don’t know. Maybe it’s too young for me, but I like it.
The cardigan is from Social Threads, and it’s lightweight with a nice loose weave — perfect for summertime!
Here’s our group! They will probably kill me for posting this, but it’s already on Instagram so… We had so much fun. Love these girls.
I wore the same outfit for our trip home as I did on our way down, so you’ve seen this before. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
And this is back to life… back to reality… we returned to 40-degree temperatures so I’m back in my cozy comfort clothes. Get all the details HERE.
And finally, I wore this yesterday to the meet & greet with the stars from the PopTV show, Hollywood Darlings — Jodie Sweetin from Full House, Beverley Mitchell from 7th Heaven, and Christine Lakin from Step By Step. That was so fun. I’ll share more about it tomorrow in my Coffee Talk.
And that’s a wrap!
What are you up to this weekend? I’m trying to decide what to do with myself today. Later on we’re going down to visit my in-laws (they live about an hour away) but I have a good chunk of the morning to fill.
I cleared out my office and packaged up a ton of returns yesterday so that is out of the way, which is nice! That’s often how I spend my Saturdays.
I was planning to shoot a spring outfit or two with Paul, but it is 31 degrees right now. I’m sorry, but I’m over it. I refuse to shoot another spring outfit in 30-degree weather. I’m also done running in 30-degree weather. So there.
Yes, I realize the lack of exercise only further contributes to my crankiness, but I just can’t deal with this weather anymore.
I have some stuff I’d like to list on @shopjolynnescloset but that’s a big undertaking. I’m not sure I’m up for it today. (There are still a few things left for sale that haven’t been snapped up yet, if you’re interested!)
Maybe I’ll just pour a 3rd cup of coffee and sit and read my book until it’s time to leave. I started it when I was in Florida and I haven’t picked it up since I got home.
Any-who. That’s about it for me! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!
