One of our newest Blended Blog contributors, Abbie from Grumbling Grace, is also on a mission to wear everything in her closet. She shares each outfit separately with a little blurb about it, so I thought I'd try that today.
You know those days when you think something looks great until you see a picture of it and wonder what you were thinking? That was the theme for this week. My mom, who is temporarily living with us again, assures me that I looked very nice. But she is a mom, and it's part of her job description to compliment me, so I'm dubious. I think some of these outfits are destined for the giveaway pile.
As always, I did wear something different from my closet every day. I'm just forgetful when it comes to taking pictures. Must get better.
I actually had a few important work meetings this day, so I put on a dress. On a Wednesday. And then every person at my house proceeded to ask me where I was going. Sheesh. Guess I need to wear dresses more often. It was cold so I added tights and boots.
Off to the State swim championships. It was windy and rainy outside, but like a sauna at the pool. So much fun to get dressed in the Pacific Northwest! This top has a chiffon hem and is super comfortable - if you're in a sauna. Had to add a heavy coat and boots for the trek from the parking lot.
This outfit looked fine in the mirror, but feels kind of frumpy in hindsight. Leggings and tunic sweater from Nordstrom, scarf from Old Navy. I spent the day running errands, and in my town, you see lots of pj's at the grocery store. Seriously. So I was probably the best dressed person there. Still, I'm not loving it.
I've been trying to use Pinterest to come up with some outfit formulas, and this looked really cute on the 20 something fashionista I copied it from. Not sure how it translated to 48 - it felt a little....Mr. Rogers? I do love the Piper Street sweater vest that I purchased in December (thanks to some adorable outfits on Katie), and my black ponte pants from Kut from the Kloth are a favorite. Maybe it would work better with the dress from Wednesday.
I hope you'll join us next week for The Blended Blog's new series, Style Perspectives: how would you wear it? Feel free to jump in on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or link up your blog. It's going to be a lot of fun!
