WIWW: November 3-9, 2013

Another week of What I Wore Wednesday!

The Amateur Librarian // What I Wore Wednesday

What I Wore Wednesday is my motivation for wearing the clothes I own, finding new ways to mix and match outfits, and not wearing the same three things all the time! I kept a fashion diary for the entire year of 2012, and now in 2013 I’m adding a bit about my days to go along with the outfit. So these weekly check-ins are a mini journal of my life too!

ikat print top // Kohl’s
skinny jeans // Abercrombie & Fitch via eBay
silver flats // PayLess

Bittersweet day.  My mom flew home but Sam’s grandmother came to take her place.  Healing can be a frustrating process – two steps forward but one step back, and all that jazz.  It’s hard to live through and it’s hard to watch as the caregiver, too.

polka dot tank // Loft
half circle necklace // Everyday Icing
open front blazer // Loft
black pants // Banana Republic
ankle strap heels // eBay

In hindsight I think this blazer is too loose for a flowy top, but I still like this combo.  Chunkier necklace this time, which I like.  Back to work, and the time difference had me up way too early!  I don’t mind the extra hour of light in the morning, but coming home in the pitch black darkness is something else.

green polka dot top // Loft
pearls // gift
chain embellished grey cardigan // Kohl’s
skinny pants // Loft
black tipped flats // PayLess

I really like this princess jacket (that’s what it said on the receipt!) for dressing up a plain top and bottom.  Headed to an appointment on my lunch hour, fortunately I didn’t need any additional blood work and got right back to the office.  Busy day at work, as usual, and I was glad to get home.

black and white floral dress // Banana Republic outlet
red cardigan // Tommy Hilfiger outlet
ankle strap heels // eBay

I love a dress and cardigan combo for an easy work outfit, and lately it has been all about whatever is easiest (I guess that’s all the time, but especially the past few weeks).  Busy day at work, and straight home afterwards.

pleated sheer floral top // Belk
white cami underneath // Old Navy
black skinny pants // Loft
black leather flats // gift

Flats for walking to and from a team lunch, which was a nice break in the day.  Another busy/stressful afternoon followed by a so-so night.  Three weeks in and I am exhausted, but so thankful that family is here so I can at least go to work and keep up some sense of normalcy.

green top with floral crochet // Old Navy
rose cameo necklace // Etsy
skinny jeans // Abercrombie & Fitch via eBay
nude flats // PayLess

 I love wearing my bridesmaid necklace from Sarah’s wedding, it’s such a sweet (and pretty) memento!  Another casual Friday at work, and an afternoon infusion at the hospital.  I can’t pretend it’s fun to get hooked up to an IV, but at least I had a few quiet hours to read and listen to music by myself.

grey floral top // Loft
skinny jeans // Aeropostale via eBay

Early morning walk to Grace Cathedral was just the start I needed for the weekend.  I even dragged Sam into my fashion diaries!  The church is absolutely beautiful, and so calming.  Exactly what I needed.
