So another Saturday rolls around, and this one holds a 2 or 3 hour car ride “down the shore.” (If you live in Philly long enough, you will eventually start saying “down the shore” without thinking about how affected it sounds. Haha!)
This week’s edition of What I Wore (actually it’s another two-fer; it’s what I’ve worn over the past two weeks) is an odd one because it starts in my old house and ends up in the new one.
There aren’t a ton of looks here because I didn’t capture a lot of the outfits I’ve worn over the past few weeks — they’re either very repetitive or simply not worth looking at, but here’s what I’ve got!
What I Wore This Week 07.21.18
Here’s what I wrote to caption this picture two Saturdays ago: Today’s goals: painting, packing, packing, and more packing. I’m earning that 5:00 glass of 🍷. #saturdayvibes #ootd
That about sums it up! Everything I’m wearing is old, but I linked up similar HERE.
I wore this to church the next day — and it’s the last outfit picture we took in my old front yard! I love this outfit; it’s simple but I feel like the proportions are flattering. You can find all the details HERE.
I think this was Monday — it’s the day I came over to the new house to meet the painters, and then I ran some errands. Clearly I’ve been in a pink mood lately. You can find these outfit details HERE.
I wore pretty much that same outfit two days later to shop the #NSale — proof that I do re-wear clothes! I just swapped out the ballet flats for espadrilles and changed up my accessories. These outfit details are HERE.
The day after we moved, we had a memorial service to attend. I knew it was on the horizon, so I saved out this dress and pumps when I was packing. I love this bag with my LBD and black pumps — not that my outfit was the focus of the occasion, of course. But I couldn’t help but notice that this bag works as well with a dressy outfit as it does with my more casual ones. You can find these outfit details HERE.
This was later on that day, after I’d come back from the service and changed. My son had arrived home from summer camp while we were out, and I remember feeling so. very. tired. but also very grateful. Not for our new home — although I’m grateful for that too, of course, but I’d trade it in a heartbeat for good health and a family that is happy and together. Going to a service like the one I did that day has a way of putting things into perspective. You can find these outfit details HERE.
The next day was Sunday, and it rained cats and dogs. We snapped this picture in my new backyard right before it started to downpour. Something about my pose is really awkward and unflattering, and my shirt is yanked up on the right side (your left) for some reason, but I think the outfit works in person. The shirt has sold out, but you can find the rest of my outfit details HERE.
The next day was Monday, of course, and it was settlement day for our old house. I wore this to the real estate office to sign paperwork and meet the new owners! They are absolutely lovely, and I’m so happy for them. These jeans, shoes, bag, and earrings are all part of the #NSale. Get the details HERE.
I realized when I was adding this picture to my ShopStyle looks that I wore some variation of this outfit 3 or 4 times over the past two weeks. I guess I know what I like! Actually, I wore something cute (and a little different) on Thursday, and I kept meaning all day to get a picture of it, but I never took the time. Anyway, you can find these outfit details HERE.
And that’s a wrap! I know it’s nothing very inspiring, but I’ve been in survival mode for the past two weeks.
Now that we’re moved in, I’m not unpacking my whole closet because we’re having a custom organizational system installed in a few weeks, and it doesn’t make sense to load it up just to take everything out again. That said, living out of boxes is getting old. I’m looking forward to packing a capsule wardrobe for the beach and putting everything I need in a closet and dresser drawers.
Speaking of the beach, that’s where we’re headed today! I haven’t even started packing, but I did manage to get a grocery order onto Instacart. The time slots for this afternoon were filled up (I guess people are better planners than I am! It wouldn’t have occurred to me to order any sooner) so I had to settle for tomorrow.
There is only one grocery store in town, and it’s small and old with narrow aisles. Saturday afternoons are utter madness because everyone is getting into town for their weekly rentals. I went ahead and braved the crowds last year, but I thought I’d be smart this year and order grocery delivery. I guess I wasn’t that smart after all — next year I’ll have to remember to order a few days ahead.
Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend!
