Mom Style: What I Wore This Week 09.07.11

This week is a collection of fashion successes and failures. I decided to get dressed every day, no matter what.

WEDNESDAY: I spent the day at home and didn’t go anywhere or see anyone except the neighbors and the mailman so the fact that I got out of my pajamas was an achievement in my book.

black ribbed tank :: Lands’ End Canvas
jean shorts :: Joe’s (from 6pm.com)
earrings and necklace :: Studio Jewel

I did try to atone for my black tank top sins by dressing up the outfit with cute accessories.

THURSDAY: On Thursday I went to Neiman’s to pull looks for the fashion show. I didn’t want to overdress, after all it was just a trip to the mall, but I wanted to look cute. Yes, it’s another black top, but it is one I haven’t worn yet, and I’ve had it for a year! I tried to jazz it up with some turquoise accessories.

I went for flats for comfort, although it annoyed me that the pewter in my sandals clashed with the gold jewelry. OCD much?

black top :: CAbi
skinnies rolled up :: Paige (they were on sale at Bloomies a few years ago)
pewter sandals :: Target
earrings and necklace :: Stella & Dot
bracelet :: local shop


embellished tee :: LOFT Factory Outlet
black pencil skirt :: Athleta (last year)
flips :: Ipanema by ViX Swimwear

MONDAY: I went shopping with Melissa. Nordstrom Rack sent us each $100 to spend on summer clearance items or new fall fashions, whichever we chose. We did a bit of both, and I need to record a fashion haul video because I racked up! Ha. Nordstrom Rack, get it? Sorry . . . cheesy humor.

I pulled out some fallish clothes because it was rainy and dreary out, but in the end it was actually quite hot and humid. Still, it was nice to wear something different!

Finally! The end. This is one of the tops I got at Nordstrom Rack yesterday. FUN! I wore this outfit running errands in the rain. Good times. *note to self: need rain boots*
