I almost held off on this post and saved these for next week, when hopefully I can incorporate more variety into my outfits, but whatever… it is what it is! My life has been quite casual as of late, and our unseasonably warm and humid weather hasn’t inspired much creativity.
When I walk into my closet in the mornings, I find myself reaching for the same pair of jeans, and then I turn to my rack of short-sleeve tees, and I’m tired of all of them. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m actually thrilled the weather just turned cold.
Granted, I’d love to have a happy medium, but I think I’d rather be cold than hot right now. At least I can break out the sweaters I’ve been collecting for the past few months!
So anyway, this is what I’ve got. Hopefully I’ll have more real life inspiration next weekend, because this fall/winter weather is supposed to be here to stay this time.
What I Wore This Week
I actually pilfered this first outfit from last week, but I don’t think I shared it on the blog, at any rate. This is me trying to wear something besides ripped jeans and a t-shirt, ha!
I got a snarky comment about the price of this top on my Facebook page, but this was an #NSale purchase so I got it for 40% off. I can’t say I’d pay full price, but also, this is not an ordinary plaid shirt either. The Rails brand is best known for their super soft plaids, and I’m here to tell you, they are unlike any other plaid shirt you’ve tried. It may be cliché, but this is definitely a case of you get what you pay for.
You can sometimes score a Rails plaid at a discount on Nordstrom Rack and similar discount retailers, and they do go on sale at Nordstrom and other department stores from time to time.
I wore this around doing errands and working at home on one of the hotter days this week. I guess it was Tuesday because it’s what I wear wearing during my Facebook Live. I threw my thermal cardigan on top when I went to my MRI later that day because I knew it would be cold in there.
I wore this old outfit around the house and doing errands on Wednesday, and I snapped this picture when this bag arrived in the mail (hat tip to Brooklyn Blonde!) I thought it was really fun and different, and I’ve been wanting to change up the black bag I always carry, so I ordered one. Mine was empty in this picture, but I can see that Helena’s looks more broken-in from putting stuff inside and not so square on the bottom, so I’m eager to start carrying it.
This is what I wore to my nail appointment on Thursday. I always have to wear jeans I can pull up for my pedicure, so I usually wear these boyfriend jeans.
It was another hot day, but I’m always cold in the salon so I like to have a cardigan along with me even in the summertime. Usually I bring the thermal cardigan, but I switched it up and wore this rust cocoon cardigan this week. This was another #NSale purchase so I didn’t pay full price for it, but I probably would. It’s really a good sweater! I also have it in the tan.
I wore this yesterday. The weather has taken a sudden turn for fall, and I was perfectly comfortable in this cozy sweater all day long. Yahoo!!! You can see I’m also wearing my smoking slippers from yesterday’s post with dark was jeans. I just love this combo!
Finally, I wore this to go out to dinner with friends last night. This sweater arrived in the mail this week, and I love the print. I almost dressed down a bit with black loafers, but I decided at the last minute to go all out and wear my suede pumps. Why not, right??? I was possibly a tad over-dressed, but I don’t get many opportunities to gussy up so I have to take them when I can get them!
leopard Teddie sweater (wearing small, but it just fits; maybe size up?) // AG black jeans – wearing 28 (similar AG on sale; budget option) // similar black pumps // ring handle bag // similar earrings // similar leather jacket
And that’s a wrap! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!
