I’ve decided to make my ‘What I Wore’ segments a monthly thing, mainly because I’m guilty of wearing the same outfits over…and over… and over again. So hopefully in the course of the month, I can at least come up with a few new outfits to share! 🙂 It’s just so easy to grab a tried-and-true outfit, as apposed to going through the delightful, but often time-consuming, ‘trouble’ of determining what top, pants, shoes, and jewelry to wear. And also I have a limited supply of possibilities, so I think a monthly fashion segment will fit best. (Although – again – I could be wearing so many more outfits if I took the time to actually go through my wardrobe. *sheepish grin*).
SO I really am hoping that this segment will inspire me to create new looks with old favorites!
OUTFIT # 1 – Piano Teaching
I’m pretty excited about this first outfit; because for the first time ever, I wore colored pants! And I have to say that it felt pretty good. I’m not sure why it took me so long to jump on the bandwagon, but I do know that there is no going back!
I found these teal, skinny pants in the clearance rack at the Gap for $9. Yes, $9! They’re stretchy and super comfy, and I’m in love with the color!
For the top, I wore a white blouse from The Limited, covered by this cute heart-sweater, also from The Limited.
The fuzzy boots were purchased from JCPenny last year during an after-season sale.
OUTFIT # 2 – Baby shower
For my second outfit, I wanted to look cute without being too overly dressy (mainly because I was leading worship at church, running to my Pepere’s around lunch, and then skipping off to my friend’s baby shower). So there was a lot going on in the course of the day!
I wore my favorite pair of dark-wash skinny jeans, which were a bargain find at TJMaxx for $15. The top is an almost-sheer, wine peasant blouse from The Loft, so I wore a black cami underneath. I love how flowy the top is, and it has a cute black accent at the neckline.
To complete the outfit, I added tall brown boots and dangly, brass earrings.
Highstreet wanted to be an accessory too apparently. 😉
(Yes, I realize that my cat is as big as most small dogs. We try to keep that kind of hush-hush though, because he’s pretty sensitive about it).
OUTFIT # 3 – Date in Boston
This last outfit was my fave! 🙂
Nate and I went into the city last weekend on the warmest day of winter so far. The temps hit about 55 degrees F, and so I was more than happy to keep the winter coat at home!
I wore my favorite pair of dark-wash skinny jeans (from TJ Maxx) with a deep red, American Eagle T-shirt. Over the T, I wore my light brown, leather jacket and a bright, yellow scarf from Target. My tall boots and a red purse (also from TJ Maxx) finished off the outfit for my date in the city with the hubby.
