Mom Style: What I Wore This Week 05.04.11

WEDNESDAY was a gorgeous day, and I was just doing general errands and things so I pulled out these shorts and shirt (bought at Gap last summer) out threw them on with my favorite Frye Kayla T-Strap sandals.

It’s not the most flattering outfit, but I like the color combination, and I tried to take it up a notch by adding the Silpada necklace and the embellished sandals.

THURSDAY I took my daughter to Kohl’s and Kindergarten Roundup. I wanted to look a little bit nicer than normal without looking like I was trying too hard. I picked this stretchy black pencil skirt from Athleta and an orange sleeveless tee from Patagonia. The day started out warm and humid, but before our appointment at the school, a storm came through and cooled everything off so I threw on a jean jacket.

In looking at these pictures, I think the skirt would look better with flats. It’s about an inch shorter than I’d like, and the extra inch in the flips throw off the proportions.

FRIDAY I went to a Stella & Dot party and then out to lunch with my hubby. I love the contrast of the teal and the white — so crisp and fresh. The Shirred Back T and white cropped jeans are both from the Gap, the pewter braided sandals are from Target.

The earrings are Stella & Dot. Since I wasn’t doing a necklace, I wanted something that would stand out. These are just the ticket.

The weather was pleasant, but cool so I threw on my gray LOFT jacket (the one from this post.)


SATURDAY promised to be beautiful, but it started out rather chilly. I put on jeans and the tank, and then when I realized how chilly it was, I threw on the jacket. I decided to go with the sandals to keep it springy.

The jeans are Paige Premium, and the tank is the Banana Republic Timeless tank, and the khaki jacket is from LOFT. The jacket’s really cute, I should have shot a photo from the back.

The necklace is Silpada (same as Wednesday.) It’s one of my favorites. I also had on the matching earrings but I didn’t get a good picture of them.

And then I stopped taking pictures so that’s all I’ve got. For more What I Wore Wednesday, head on over to The Pleated Poppy!
