What I Wore This Week
It’s been a while since I did one of these posts, and since I actually went somewhere this week (read: didn’t spend every other day in the same sweatshirt, jeans, and slippers), I figured it was a good time to round up some of my recent outfits!
As an FYI, I post most of my outfits to Instagram — either to my feed or to stories, so if you follow along over there, these probably aren’t new to you, but it’s always nice to have them all in one place, and I can give more details on how they came together in a blog post.
If you aren’t on Instagram and you want some instant outfit inspo, you can always take a look at my Shop My Instagram Page in The Shop — linked in my menu bar at the top of the blog, or in the dropdown on mobile, and on the sidebar graphic.
Okay, so here’s a roundup of some of what I’ve worn over the past couple weeks!
What I Wore // Instagram Lately
For size reference, I’m 5’5″ with an hourglass figure, and I generally range from 135-140#. I usually take a small in sweaters and tops, a 6 or 8 (28 or 29) in pants and jeans, and an 8 in dresses.
FYI, every image below is clickable, taking you to my ShopStyle page with links to everything I’m wearing.
First up, an outfit I wore to church a few weeks back. It’s hard to see the details here, but this is a little more than a basic cashmere turtleneck. It’s a Vince that I snagged on Saks Off Fifth last winter at a deep discount, and the hem and cuffs are set apart in an extra wide rib knit. Of course, it’s long gone, so I did link up some more basic styles in case you’re shopping for a good black turtleneck.
I just paired it with my favorite skinnies and grey suede booties. This is a foolproof color combo that I wear over and over. It could use a fun colored bag — my new red one would be perfect — but sometimes I like to keep it all neutral. Get all details HERE.
I’ve worn this outfit a couple of times recently — it’s just so easy and chic. This particular day, I went to the mall.
I hate wearing a heavy coat in the mall, so I usually layer up and go with a leather jacket or puffer vest as my top layer. A lot of what I’m wearing is old, but it’s all very basic closet staples that most of us have already. Get all the details HERE.
I was really feeling the neutrals there for a while, wasn’t I?!?
Here’s a rare cardigan moment… haha! I’ve realized that one of the reasons I don’t wear cardigans much is that I don’t have any base layers I like underneath them. Just about every tee I own has a boob pocket, which I always find so awkward under a cardigan because it sort of half shows. I also don’t like the way a short-sleeve tee tends to bunch up in the shoulder area.
I FINALLY found a few tees without the boob pocket, and one is a tank style — perfect for layering under cardigans! The other option is a long-sleeve tee, and I do have one of those, but the neckline is higher than I prefer so I only wear it when it’s really cold out. The tank I love is marked way down, but it is final sale. I recommend sizing up if in between. I tried both sizes and kept the medium.
Get these outfit details HERE.
This cheery pink confetti sweater is an Old Navy find. I wish it didn’t have the drop shoulders, but otherwise it’s really cute and has a flattering neckline. It’s also light enough to wear into spring. Plus it’s marked down to $28 plus an extra 30% off that with code MORE.
And these jeans are really good for $65. Unfortunately these boots are super old and no longer available anywhere. They’re UGGs, and they’re so good; I wish they’d bring them back! Get all the details HERE.
I think you’ve seen this before in a try-on post, but it bears mentioning again because this top is super cute and another affordable Amazon find. I recommend sizing up in this one; I’m wearing a medium. Get the details HERE.
I wore this to church one Sunday, and surprisingly, there are some sizes of this sweater still left! It’s final sale, but it comes down to $45 with promo code GOFORIT. I’m wearing a small, for reference.
I wore this to meet a friend for brunch on “Galentine’s Day” and it obviously has just snowed. Even so, it wasn’t terribly cold, so I bypassed a coat and wore my leather jacket and a scarf with this pink sweater and grey jeans. Get all the details HERE.
Here you can see the outfit from a different angle without the scarf. As you can see, the scarf adds a lot, but of course I didn’t wear it (or the coat) inside the restaurant.
Every once in a while, we get a mild day, and I trade in my cozy cashmere for a lightweight sweater and my boots for loafers. I’m super excited that they brought back a similar version of these driving loafers! I also really like the slightly shorter length of these jeans for spring looks.
I wore this to have lunch with my husband on Valentine’s Day. I was coming from my photo shoot, actually, which is why I didn’t wear something dressier. I just kept on the last outfit we shot. I’ve since worn it several times, or a variation of it. For reference, the sweater is a small, and the jeans are a 28.
I can’t remember where I wore this, but I love this twist front top. It’s a Gibson piece, so very soft and cozy — great for transition season, under $50, and available in a ton of colors. For size reference, I take the small. Get all the details HERE.
I wore this outfit running errands and hosting a meeting at my house. I actually wear this sweater a lot — probably once or twice a week. I love it so much, AND it just finally went on sale!!! It’s still a bit splurgy but totally worth it for such a nice knit, and the color palette lends itself well to carrying over into spring.
For reference, I take a medium in the Nordstrom Signature brand. Get all details HERE.
I met a friend at the mall the Saturday before I left for Arizona, and it was chilly, but again, I don’t like to wear a coat in the mall, so it was a cozy cashmere sweater and hooded puffer vest to the rescue!
This is what I wore traveling to Arizona last weekend. Believe it or not, it took me an age to figure out what to wear. Seems crazy, but it just wasn’t coming together. I wanted to be comfortable but look stylish and also wear things I could re-wear while on my trip.
I decided to forego a winter coat and use this leather jacket for my travel days as well as a completer piece for my outfits in Arizona, and even though it was quite cold both here and there, it worked out fine. My suitcase was already over the weight limit, so it turned out to be a good decision! Get the details HERE.
I wore this next look to dinner with some other bloggers I met on this trip. They said they were going casual so I opted for flats, but I still wanted to look like I was going out to dinner and not hanging out at home, so I chose this black ruffle trim blouse and jeans. They ended up in heels and cute jackets, so I could have dressed up more, but I felt fine. This is a good middle-of-the-road outfit. It’s cute and chic and flattering but not over the top.
Also, I’m super excited to tell you this blouse is back on sale! It comes down to $26 with code MORE. LOFT did a great job making it cute and flirty but not too voluminous, and the material feels really nice against the skin. I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this because you can easily dress it up or down. For the sale price, you can’t beat it. I’m wearing the small, for reference. Get all the details HERE.
This is what I wore the main day of the conference and for meetings with brands. I wanted to look chic and put together and like a “fashion blogger” while staying true to myself and my “brand.”
The idea of me as a brand is kind of comical, but in the influencer/fashion blogging space, it is something to consider. I need to represent my personal style and that of my target audience, so the brands I meet with instantly know when they meet me what my blog is about and what my typical “reader” is looking for.
To complicate matters, we are definitely in between seasons, so I didn’t know if I should be wearing spring or winter fashion. I tried to walk the line between spring and winter, comfort and style, classic and edgy… and I think I did a pretty good job, to be honest!
After a day of meetings with brands, I had some down time so I came back to my room and rested. That night I had a dinner with some of the ShopStyle staff and the other fashion bloggers on the trip. I changed into this leopard blouse, black jeans, and black leather jacket.
I wanted to wear my new beige suede pumps, but I kept walking out of them so I decided to be safe and wear black strappy sandals instead.
I’m so glad I did because after dinner, we all went to a bar to hang out for a bit. I would have been so uncomfortable standing around in pumps that don’t quite fit. It was a good reminder that looking chic is important, but comfort and practicality should always take precedence. I’m so glad I erred on the side of comfort.
I was supposed to fly home on Wednesday, but I rescheduled my flight due to weather concerns. This is what I wore to hang out at the resort for most of the day and then to transfer to my new hotel. In both places, I hung out in the lounge for most of the time and worked on my laptop.
Here I am again, same outfit, on my way down to the lounge in my 2nd hotel. I’m really bummed that this necklace sold out. I just got it too. I hate it when that happens! I linked a couple similar options.
And this is the next morning on my way to the airport, wearing the same travel outfit minus the scarf.
Finally, I wore this outfit for a little while yesterday, but I ended up changing into comfy old favorites once I got home.
How fun are these snakeskin flats??? They’re giving off some major 80s vibes, but I’m really loving pointy toe flats right now.
And I guess that’s a wrap! I’m off to see my daughter perform in her first jazz band performance this afternoon, and Paul and I are planning to go out to dinner tonight because both girls have plans. I hope y’all have a great weekend!
