What I Wore This Week (and Last Week Too!)
Good morning! I hope you’re enjoying your first June weekend! I didn’t share my outfits last Saturday because I wanted to do a MDW Sales post, so I have two weeks of outfits for you today.
Also, if you have been having trouble receiving my emails or getting opted in to the new GDPR approved list, scroll to the bottom of this post for instructions. I even have an update that is newer than the email that went out this morning… for all who have been getting that error after trying to update.
The weather has been up and down, as it tends to be this time of year, so I’ve got a mix of spring and summer looks again this week.
I wore this outfit one dreary, rainy day last week to run a few errands. I take every chance I can to wear this sweater before I have to put it away for next fall. I know the price is up there, but I did get it when it was on sale, so at least there’s that.
I wore this outfit to church two weeks ago when it was pretty outside. I think it was the only non-rainy Sunday we’ve had in months. Also, these jeans are on sale at Saks. I got my regular size 28, but I kind of wish I had gone up to a 29, so if you’re buying a pair and you’re in between sizes, you may want to size up.
I wore this outfit to go to the mall… obviously! I took this picture in the Nordstrom dressing room. After my shopping trip, I met a friend for lunch.
This sweater is on sale and it’s a really nice piece to have for those times when you want something dressier than a tee but still comfortable and easy to throw on and go. It also comes in white, and I’m wearing a small. I love these jeans, but size up if you order. I’m wearing a size 30.
Yep, the same jeans two days in a row. As I said in yesterday’s post, I definitely get my money’s worth out of these! This top is cute (and on sale!) but definitely size down. It also comes in other colors.
YAY! They restocked this dress! I was SO hoping they would. It runs a little large, so size down if in between. I have it in a small.
Also, it’s thin, but I feel comfortable without a slip as long as I’m wearing my Jockey Skimmies Slipshorts (less control) or Spanx Shape My Day Girl Shorts (more control) underneath. I prefer the Spanx, but both are comfortable and moisture-wicking and keep your dress from getting stuck in unfortunate places… ifyouknowwhatImean. I also hear good things about these Soma Smoothing Shorts, but I haven’t tried them yet.
I wore this casual outfit to run some errands last Friday, and I think I went to the mall; it’s hard to remember. This graphic tee is so fun and only $7.50, and I love these tri-tone earrings for when you want something larger than average but not too big and heavy.
That night we decided to go out to dinner, so I switched into this denim skirt outfit. We were just going to a casual restaurant with the girls, but I wanted to look nicer than the denim shorts and graphic tee (above.)
The skirt runs small; I have it in a 30. And I wear a small in this tee, so it’s pretty much TTS.
I wore this last Saturday for a Target run among other things. Yes, the same shorts and sandals two days in a row. It seems to be a theme lately!
I thought the cut on this top was really cute, but it’s stretchy and has a way of hugging your lumps and bumps, so that’s something to be aware of. It runs small, so size up! I have the medium.
I wore this on Sunday to church. It was another rainy day (shocker!) It wasn’t a downpour; it was just spritzing, so I went for an in-between outfit with this 3/4 sleeve sweater and perforated booties.
My rain boots got packed away when we staged the house to sell it and I haven’t bothered to dig them back out yet, and besides, I’m tired of wearing boots!
I have no idea what I wore on Monday, but I didn’t photograph it, evidently. This outfit is from Tuesday. I came home after shooting a bunch of summer looks with Alison and threw on these comfy old shorts and the twist front tee — which, I discovered, is finally on sale!
I didn’t photograph myself on Wednesday or Thursday either, and for that you should thank me. Not even an Instagram filter could have handled Thursday. I stayed in workout clothes all day… no makeup, ponytail, glasses… the works. I even took my daughter to the hair salon, where I callously subjected the stylists and other patrons to my startling sight. I know, I’m a terribly thoughtless human being.
Okay, okay, I kid… it’s not really not as bad as all that, but I generally prefer to stay close to home on my “grace days.” But some days, you just gotta do whatcha gotta do!
Finally, I threw this outfit on yesterday to take my daughter to the orthodontist and to run to the carpet store. I decided to give the blue denim a rest, so I grabbed these pink jeans instead. The easiest way to wear colored jeans is to throw on a white tee and a denim jacket, so that’s what I did. It’s totally fool-proof as long as you have pieces that fit you well.
I am also realizing, as I write this out, that I didn’t actually give the blue denim a rest — I just switched it around to my jacket. I’m hopeless. Hopelessly in love with denim, that is.
And that’s a wrap! I hope y’all enjoy the rest of your weekend, and come back on Monday for Day 2 of 21 Days of Summer Fashion!

And speaking of my emails…
WHAT TO DO IF YOU STOPPED GETTING MY EMAILS
Some people are having trouble opting in to the new GDPR approved email list so you can continue getting my emails… or perhaps you missed my announcement altogether and have wondered why you aren’t getting my emails anymore.
Even if you think you already updated your preferences, you may have missed a crucial step, so please try again using these instructions. And if you were getting the funky error page after doing these steps, I have what I hope is a solution to that as well.
- Go to any of my old emails in your inbox, scroll allllll the way down to the bottom to the footer (it is a black background), and the last line of text should have a link to “update your preferences.” Click that link. This seems to working for people when the link I sent via email does not.
- That will open up a new tab in your browser that looks like the image below. Make sure the emails you want to receive are checked — new daily posts or weekly digest.
- Then, under Marketing Permissions, check the box beside the text: “Yes, I want to receive your emails!”
- Click UPDATE PROFILE at the very bottom.
I hope that works for you, and again, I am so sorry for the inconvenience. If you do this and STILL don’t get my email tomorrow (or next Saturday if you’re a weekly-only subscriber), email me and let me know. I have a help ticket out to MailChimp to see what their solution is, and I hope to hear from them next week.
