WIWW: August 24-30, 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!

We said goodbye to Opryland and stopped by Cracker Barrel for brunch before heading home. It was such a nice reprieve to have a quick night away from home, without feeling unprepared for the upcoming work week. I even had time to finish up a couple quilts in the afternoon and visit the Apple store (my 5 was eligible for the battery recall – you should check to see if yours is too!)

black strap + cork wedges // PayLess

I haven’t worn this dress in ages, but I’m trying to work though every piece in my closet (or purge it) and this one was up next. I’ve had it since high school and usually I shy away from the loud print, but it’s one of the most comfortable dresses I own… so it’s still a keeper!  Mondays are always crazy, and this one was no exception.  Luckily it was cool enough after work to go for a walk, and afterward we watched the Emmy’s.

Black and blue again for an easy work outfit.  It rained off and on but cleared up by the end of the day so I could work out again.

When in doubt… black + white + red.  After work we ran a few errands but it was too hot to go for a walk.

Busy day at work with a fun treat afterwards – skybox tickets for the pre-season Titans game!  Good thing we had shelter, because everyone else in the stadium got soaked as it rained on and off all night.  I’m not a huge football fan but I’ve never been to an NFL game before, so it was a fun experience!

TGIF! My parents came to town and went with me to another infusion. I can’t say I enjoy my hospital visits, but it’s nice to see them every 6 weeks.  We went out for dinner and hit the hay early.

My parents left mid-morning and we caught up on chores around the house. I had some time to finish up a(nother!) quilt…  I’ve been on a roll lately!  It’s nice to have a few new podcasts to listen to while I sew  – Sawbones and Book Riot are my latest favorites!
