WIWW: May 11-17, 2014

Another week of What I Wore Wednesday!


The Amateur Librarian // WIWW

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, in 2013 I added a bit about my days to go along with the outfit, and I’m continuing the same tradition in 2014… So these weekly check-ins are a mini journal of my life too!

skinny jeans // Kohl’s
silver rope sandals // eBay

Wrapped up the weekend with lots of errands, although I still managed to squeeze in some time outside cross stitching.  Now that I’m working again, I kinda miss having so much alone time… so I definitely take advantage of free time when I can!

Monday!  So far I’ve been wearing a lot of black and red… it’s not even my favorite color combo but it’s so easy to put together!  Plus, any excuse to wear my new shoes…

Tuesday marked one week at my new job!  I’m really enjoying it, and I’m happy to be working again!  Red and black again, of course.

I’m really liking tassel necklaces right now, but the state of my jewelry collection is also a reason why I’ve been wearing this so much lately… it’s a hot mess!  The home front has suffered since my return to the working world, but it’s on my To Do list to get my jewelry back into order.  That, and my shoes… and the bar cart in the dining room… and the pile of art that hasn’t been hung yet…

Friday!  This look transitioned from Casual Friday at work to a night out in Nashville.  We saw the Ternderloins stand up, aka the Impractical Jokers… we love their TV show!  The show was really fun, and afterwards we walked down Broadway and spent a few hours at the Big Bang piano bar… it was such a fun night!

Started the day with a walk… I’ve been watching a Canadian geese couple build a nest and lay eggs, and now the babies are here!  They’ve adopted a duckling too, which is pretty cute.  Lots to do… laundry, errands, and crossing off the To Do list.  I finally tackled my closet and got my jewelry and shoes organized… it feel so much better now that it’s functional!  Lots of Pinterest ideas were used, of course… I’ll have a post up on that tomorrow!

I’m linked up to The Pleated Poppy for WIWW!
