WIWW: November 17-23, 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!

red animal print dress // Loft
dolman sleeve cardigan // Ann Taylor outlet
quatrefoil necklace // GroopDealz
black tights // Walgreens
floral flats // gift

This outfit felt a little dark, but I guess it’s the season now for that.  We visited Grace Cathedral for an early service, which was about as pretty as you would imagine.  The rest of the day was a little shaky, but nothing some time alone at the nail salon couldn’t cure.

grey pants // old
heels // PayLess

Time to break out my cardigan collection again now that the weather is cooling off.  I can’t say it was a great day… I was mostly worrying all day about everything going on, and work was even more hectic than usual so that didn’t help my anxiety.  I decided that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the Sewing 101 class, which was a bummer, but after the decision was made I was mostly relieved.  I’d like to be social and get out of the house, but sometimes it’s nice to just say no to a few unnecessary obligations.

houndstooth dress // eBay
grey wool blazer // Loft
rose cameo necklace // Etsy
skinny belt // Target
grey tights // Gap
ankle strap heels // eBay

Grey for a gloomy rainy day.  November 19 is a popular day for birthdays – my Mama shares with a few good friends all on one day.  Some days are harder than others to keep up an optimistic view, and that’s all I’ll say about that.

grey sweater // Loft
pearls // eBay

patent wedges // PayLess

Grey rainy day #2.  This sweater can be hard to wear because it can shift from “blousy” to “baggy” throughout the day, but it’s so cozy that I forgive it.  It was our last night with Sam’s grandmother, which was bittersweet.  We made one last visit to a favorite restaurant (Pancho’s) and Bob’s for donuts.  It’s hard to believe our teeny tiny one-bedroom/bathroom apartment accommodated three different visitors so pleasantly for 4 weeks, but that’s probably because of great guests!

black top // Banana Republic via eBay
open front blazer // Loft
geometric pendant // eBay
red print skirt // Loft
black tights // Gap
ankle strap heels // eBay

Somehow I haven’t worn this skirt yet from my shopping spree in Alabama… way back in September!  I love an easy skirt that can be worn just as easily at the office or on a casual weekend day.  Sam’s grandmother left early in the morning to catch her flight, which was a sad goodbye.  The first day on our own without family reinforcements went just fine, which gave me hope that everything is truly on the mend… and hope is a good feeling!

leaf print top // Kohl’s
sailboat pendant // GroopDealz
cream cardigan // Loft
skinny jeans // Abercrombie & FItch via eBay
nude flats // PayLess

 Another Casual Friday at the office.  The work day seemed slow, maybe because my mind is already on the holiday.  We celebrated Friday night with dinner and a movie back home on the couch… my kind of night!

purple hi-lo top // Groopdealz
mint chevron necklace // Groopdealz
grey pants // Abercrombie & FItch via eBay
silver flats // PayLess

Busy errand day catching up on laundry, cleaning, and running around.  We went to the matinee showing of Hunger Games: Catching Fire… so good!
