What I Wore Wednesday
Three weeks in a row, GO ME!
It was one of those nasty days that only March can bring. I was tempted to wear my sweats for a 3rd day in a row (or 4th, if you count that I wore them to work the nursery at church on Sunday night) but I was inspired from reading all the WIWW posts that I decided to go the whole nine yards. I jumped in the shower and prettied myself up and put on real clothes. I swear I was more productive that way. Perhaps the Fly Lady was right . . . (yes, I even put on my shoes!)
The sweater is from the Gap and, the gray embellished T is from the Loft Outlet. The jeans are Citizens, the shoes are Privos and the bag is Orla Kiely.
The bracelet was a gift from JanMary a few years back. I always pull it out in the springtime because it goes so well with my Orla Kiely bag, and with all the coral and green in my wardrobe.
I like the contrast of the gray with the coral. I’ve never put these two pieces together before, but I think I’ll be wearing them together again. Next time I think I’ll add some bigger earrings. I feel like the outfit needs one more accessory. I didn’t wear a lot of makeup because I only had preschool drop-off/pick-up that day. Otherwise, I was just working from home.
Clearly coral is my happy color. I love this sweater with denim. (Okay, what do I NOT love with denim?) But I like this sweater a lot. I picked it up at the Banana Republic Outlet a few years ago, and it’s great for this in-between weather with the 3/4-length sleeves.
Same bag, same jeans, and same bracelet. I chose the embellished flats rather than my Privos to dress it up a bit, and I added my Blissdom necklaces from Lisa Leonard and Vintage Pearl. I can’t remember where I went that day — maybe the mall?
Friday is the day I went to the beach. The coral theme continues.
I brought a black top to wear out to dinner that night, but once I got there, it seemed to… well, black. The coral sweater that I wore on the car ride down there seemed more appropriate for the beach, so I just threw on my favorite Joe’s bootcut jeans with the flap pockets and a pair of platform sandals.
I spent Saturday shopping at Rehoboth Beach. It wasn’t nearly as warm as Friday and I was chilly in this open-knit gray sweater. I could have used a trench to break the wind.
The sweater is from Banana Republic, and the T is from the LOFT Outlet. As you can see, the hotel did not have a full length mirror. I wore black ballet flats, but I switched them out for a cute pair of sparkly silver wedge Reef flip-flops that I purchased at the shops.
Hey, I didn’t spend $45 on a pedicure to hide them in ballet flats! Ha.
My photo taking went down hill after that. I meant to take a photo of my Sunday outfit, but I never got around to it. It was basically this (photo taken at Blissdom).
I spent Monday in my sweats, battling a supposed gluten exposure, and Tuesday I did actually put myself together but I didn’t get a picture.
Actually, today is Tuesday, although this will post on Wednesday, and I’m too lazy to get up and get a picture. I did manage to get out of my sweatpants and into jeans, but I compromised with one of my trusty tank-and-hoodie ensembles. Look, whaddya want? I only left the house to go to the grocery store and to take my son to baseball practice, for which I didn’t even get out of the car. So I think putting on jeans and real shoes was quite an accomplishment, thankyouverymuch.

And then head over to the WIWW headquarters, The Pleated Poppy, where you will surely be inspired and encouraged to get out of those sweatpants and into some real clothes. Go ahead! Your husband (and the checkout clerk at the market) will thank you.
