WIWW: November 30 – December 6, 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!

Travel day back to Tennessee, after brunch at Starkville Cafe. It’s always bittersweet to leave family and friends (and Al!) behind again, but it was so nice to have a break from “real life”… and of course we were happy to see the cats again! I couldn’t resist putting up the Christmas tree and nativity that night… tis the season, finally!

black skinny pants // Loft
red t-strap wedges // eBay
Back to work again… good thing I like my job! Returning to the real world is always rough. But I have to admit, a cheery Christmas tree twinkling at home makes everything a bit better.

grey tights // Gap
brown ankle boots // Deep South Pout
We got spoiled by the mild weather in MS while we visited for Thanksgiving – back in TN, it’s cold and drizzly again. Busy day at work, followed by a few errands before we were home for the night.

black+white color block top // Charming Charlie
leaf necklace // GroopDealz
grey ruffled cardigan // Anthropologie
black skinny pants // Loft
black flats // PayLess
Lately I’ve been wearing a lot of black+white – it’s just so easy to throw together. Another work day, another trip to the grocery store, another typical Wednesday night.

animal print dress // Belk
rose cameo necklace // gift
red cardigan // Tommy Hilfiger outlet
grey tights // Gap
brown ankle boots // Deep South Pout
So here’s an adult dilemma: I bought myself some really cute black ankle boots that would go perfectly with this outfit… but they’re supposed to be a Christmas gift to myself… so should I wait until Christmas or just wear them now since I’ve already bought them? I decided to wait… but it’s hard to be Santa! The highlight of my night was watching Peter Pan Live! Really fun, although all the obvious flying wires ruined a bit of the magic for me.

TGIF! The work week went by swiftly, but by Friday I was dragging. Happy to check out at the end of the day and visit our favorite wine tasting to start off the weekend.

Spent some quality time with my sewing machine to catch up on some holiday gifts. After lunch we drove to Nashville for the Porter Flea holiday bazaar… but the line down the block caused us the rethink our plans. We ate lunch and turned back around… oh well, more time to sew!  We went to see the third Hunger Games movie Saturday night… I really liked it!  (Even though the plot was as break-neck as the previous movies, there was finally time to develop some of the characters.)
