What I Wore + Try On Haul
Good morning! I hope you all are having a good weekend. Today I’ve got more try ons and pictures of what I wore over the last week or so.
I’d love to hear from you all too, as to what types of gift guides you’d like to see from me, and what you’ll be shopping for over Thanksgiving weekend. The sales are already starting — they seem to start earlier and earlier every year. I’ll be traveling, so I won’t be able to provide quite the amount of Black Friday sale coverage that I usually do, but I’m doing my best to prep some things ahead, and I know you all will agree that the most important thing is spending quality time with family.
Meanwhile, here’s what I’ve worn lately and my most recent try ons.
What I Wore
I wore this outfit to my son’s college football game a couple of weeks ago, with a black quilted vest on top, and I’ve worn this outfit as-is quite a few times when I’m at home or running errands around town. So comfy and cozy. And I’m super excited to tell you that this hooded sweater has been restocked! It’s marked down and then an additional 40% off.
I wore this outfit last Saturday to run errands and prepare for a dinner party I was hosting. (I swapped my booties for slippers when I got home.) This sweater finally went on sale, and it’s 40% off! I recommend sizing up one — I’m in the small, and it’s a little snug. I actually tugged on it to stretch it out some through the chest and midsection. It’s nice quality, though, and I like the subtle play on the varsity stripe trend that’s popular right now. The grey heather combo works great with my black jeans, but I also really like the blue classics combo.
This is what I wore to church on Sunday. It was a bright, sunny day, so I used the opportunity to wear my suede mules. Also, this taupe suede moto jacket is back in stock AND on sale! Such a good color. Definitely size up one if in between; I have the medium.
I don’t think I got dressed on Monday — I can’t even remember. I definitely didn’t post an outfit to Instagram. I wore this on Tuesday for my Facebook Live chat and to do work at home.
And I wore this cozy outfit on Wednesday afternoon after my photo shoot with Alison. I’ll have more of this outfit on the blog later this week, and I’m excited to tell you these loafers have been restocked in the grey! These are absolutely the most comfortable shoes I own. SO worth the price — which is actually marked way down from the original so not so bad.
I actually wore this outfit two days this week, ha! This is my go-to when I’m at home — comfy AG skinnies, my Vince loafers, and a cashmere pullover sweater (v-neck or turtleneck, depending on how cold I am.) A lot of days I don’t post my actual outfit to IG b/c it’s too repetitive, but that’s real life, I guess!
This sweater is old, but I’m super stoked to tell you that these jeans from the #NSale this summer were recently restocked and still on sale. They’re one of my favorite AG pairs ever — I’m seriously tempted to buy a backup pair. For reference, I wear a size 29 in these — for some reason they run smaller than most of my other AG legging ankle jeans.
I also wore this outfit one day this week, I can’t remember which one. This turtleneck is one of my all-time favorites, and it’s selling fast. I also really like these sateen leggings as an alternative to jeans.
Also, if you’re a LOFT card holder, you can get 50% off your order today! If you’re not, you can get 40% off tops, sweaters, leggings, and dresses. Be sure to check out my LOFT Favorites page in The Shop!
And finally, I wore this outfit again last night when we went out with friends, but I forgot to get a picture before it got dark out. I swapped out the pumps for my black suede sock booties and carried a crossbody bag instead of this tote.
P.S. This leopard teddie sweater is now under $30!
Try On Haul
As for my latest try-ons… I only have a few things, but I know I tend to go heavy on the sweaters, so I’m excited to have some jeans and dresses to share with you.
I’m always on the lookout for a good sweater dress this time of year, and I struck out with the first few I tried. I ordered this sweater dress from Banana Republic when I saw it on another blog, and it looks ADORABLE on Shana, but on me, I feel like it looks like a bit of a sack.
I think it’s supposed to fit that way, but I’m not sure it’s best for my curvy figure. What do you all say? I love the color and the button detail, and it’s a great length. So often, sweater dresses are way short.
I also ordered this ruffle cuff sweater dress. It’s a dressier style, and I love that it’s a little more fitted than the one above, but I’m not crazy about the crewneck. I wish it were more open, but maybe a long layered necklace will help compensate for that. This one is also shorter, so I like it best with taller boots. I took pictures of it both ways, to show the difference.
Okay, next up, denim.
I’m still trying to find straight leg jeans that I like. I have a few more coming, but I’ll show you what I’ve got so far. I ordered two pairs of Lucky Brand Sweet N Straight jeans from Amazon. I thought I ordered the same two pairs in different washes, but one is definitely longer than the other.
These are the Tanzanite wash, and they’re a size 29W x 30L. I actually think they’re slightly too big for me, which is odd because I always wear size 29 in Lucky Brand legging jeans, but I think I need a 28 in these. I feel like the length is awkward with flats, but then I tried it on with boots, and I like them MUCH better.
These are the same jeans in the Twilight Blue, which is a darker wash. I like this wash better, but I prefer the length of the ones above. I ordered the same 29W x 30L size, but when I held them up to one another, I confirmed that these are about an inch longer. They also feel smaller. I don’t like how they break on the top of the boot, but I prefer the fit through the hips and thighs.
And finally, some better shots of the Paige Verdugo crop jeans I’m wearing with the pink cardigan above. First of all, these are sooo soft right out of the box. They have that worn-in look and feel of jeans that you’ve had for years, and I love the lighter wash.
With a 26″ inseam, they’re considered cropped, although if you’re petite, they’d be more of an ankle jean. They’re nice for wearing with flats or booties, but I think I’d like them even better in the summer with sandals. They’re a great price for Paige jeans, so definitely worth holding onto, even if I don’t wear them a ton until next spring.
And that’s a wrap!
I’m shooting a few more looks with Alison on Tuesday, and Cyndi and I will be wrapping up 20 Days of Winter Fashion after breaking for the Thanksgiving weekend.
I can’t believe it’s almost December! This year has FLOWN for our family — so many changes, but all of it good. I can’t wait to celebrate Christmas in our new home.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
