WIWW: July 27 – August 2, 2014

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, 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!

navy pintucked top // Loft
grey skinny jeans // Abercrombie & Fitch via eBay
white flip flops // Old Navy
After a goodbye breakfast with the groom’s family, we got back on the road again to head home.  It’s nice to be within driving distance of family again… after living far away for a few years I don’t take it for granted anymore. We got home mid-afternoon and managed to get a few loads of laundry done… putting everything away always makes me feel so much better than leaving it out for later.  Such a fun weekend, just too short!

black flats // gift
Another Monday came too soon… I picked an easy outfit for the transition from work to a doctor appointment in the afternoon. Fortunately the appointment went smoothly – doctor visits are so different while maintaining good health compared to the first few years after my initial diagnosis. I managed to beat the rush hour traffic coming home and treated myself to ice cream… I always need a reward after specialist visits, good or bad!

black top // Loft via eBay
pearl bead necklace // gift
striped maxi skirt // Gap
red t-strap wedges // eBay
I haven’t worn this maxi skirt in quite a while, but my new job is more on the casual end of business-casual so I decided it worked for the office with a simple top and pearls.  Another work day that flew by – better to be busy than bored!

navy top with embroidered cuffs // Deep South Pout
tassel necklace // Charming Charlie’s
grey pants // old
black heels // PayLess
I love this new navy top – simple but a few fun details with the embroidered cuffs and deep v back.  Not much else to say about Hump Day.

chartreuse dress // Target
black cami underneath // Old Navy
rose gold necklace // Charming Charlie’s
black strap+cork wedges // PayLess
Another easy comfy dress, another busy work day.  The highlight of my day was pizza for dinner (homemade this time, instead of ordering out, so fancy!) and Project Runway.

yellow lace top // eBay
skinny jeans // Abercrombie & Fitch via eBay
cutout flats // PayLess
Another busy half day at work, and a doctor appointment in the afternoon.  Indulged in some trashy TV before hubby came home from work – it’s the only time I can watch Teen Mom in peace, without constant teasing!  We had popcorn for dinner and saw Guardians of the Galaxy – it was really funny!

Tax free weekend!  We took advantage and did a bit of shopping in the morning, then spent the afternoon catching up on chores around the house.  We went downtown to Puckett’s for dinner and live music – fun stuff!
