WIWW: August 17-23, 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!

graphic tee // Old Navy (old)
khaki shorts // Loft
white flip flops // Old Navy
It’s been the summer of shorts around here!  I like it when the season act appropriately, including hot weather during the summertime (I’m looking at you, Pacific Northwest!) Cozy rainy day, so I indulged in inside activities – cross stitching a bit with the cats in attendance, and playing with stickers.

black top // Banana Republic via eBay
baroque pearls // eBay
striped maxi skirt // Gap
pewter sandals // Belk
Another Monday! Can’t seem to find another top to go with this maxi skirt for work, but decided not to worry too much about it. The rainy day cleared up so I could walk after work.  After dinner we resisted the TV and read all night – sometimes I forget how nice it is!

polka dot black tee // Loft via eBay
taupe cardigan // Ann Taylor
olive green pants // Gap
black strap+cork wedges // PayLess
This all-neutral outfit was inspired by Putting Me Together... I love her easygoing fashion blog!  The rain held off for another walk after work, which was nice.  I got challenged by my BFF to participate in the ALS Ice Water challenge… brrr!  It was fun to be part of the fad, especially for a good cause.  (Video evidence on Facebook and Instagram if you’re interested.)

navy striped dress // Loft
navy blue cardigan // Old Navy
sailboat pendant // GroopDealz
nude wedges // PayLess
Hump day!  Busy day at work followed by another walk.  Unfortunately the summer heat caught up with me and the 90 degree weather at 6 PM wasn’t so much fun… hopefully it cools down again soon!

teal top // GroopDealz
mint chevron necklace // GroopDealz
black skinny pants // Gap
pewter sandals // Belk
Easy peasy outfit.  Teal is still my favorite color to wear!  Too hot after work to walk.  Finally got to talk to my mama again on the phone – it was weird missing our daily talks while my parents were on vacation and out of reception!  We made pizza for dinner and watched my favorite Thursday night shows with a glass of wine: The Quest and Project Runway!

navy floral top // Belk
skinny jeans // Aeropostale via eBay
silver rope sandals // eBay
TGIF!  Another half day at work, with a few errands and a doctor appointment in the afternoon. I’ve been neglecting my sewing machine lately but I sat down with an audiobook and enjoyed a few hours working on a quilt… post on that coming tomorrow!  After hubby got off work we stopped by The Bottle Store for their free Friday night wine tasting followed by Mexican for dinner… fun way to kick off the weekend!

embroidered grey dress // eBay
white flip flops // Old Navy

Staycation at Opryland!  We drove over around lunch time and spent the afternoon seeing the sights – the complex is huge!  It was a welcome retreat compared to the heat and humidity outside.  Great food, beautiful scenery, sweet room, it’s like a whole different world under the domes. Fun times!
