WIWW: December 7-13, 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!

December 7

blue striped top // Forever 21
jeggings // eBay
brown boots // Deep South Pout
Just hanging out with my rainbow books before running a few errands… braved the crowds for a few gifts (and candles for myself… I’m obsessed with holiday scents this year). Spent some time with the sewing machine and wrapping paper too… only half the items on my To-Do list got crossed off, and I was definitely not ready for the weekend to end!

neon pink top with zipper shoulders // Target
layered rose gold necklace // Charming Charlie
aztec print infinity scarf // Everyday Icing
black skinny pants // Gap
nude flats // PayLess
Back to work again. Put on some neon to brighten up the day… but I’m not sure it worked, ha! I spent my lunch break waiting in line at the post office and it definitely felt like a Monday… but after we got home and ate dinner I spent some time at the sewing machine listening to Christmas music and went to bed happy again. Just another manic Monday!

black top // Banana Republic
black+white bird print scarf // eBay
striped maxi skirt // Gap
red t-strap wedges // eBay
The cold weather version of the maxi skirt… put a scarf (and a bird) on it, of course. Cora didn’t want us to leave in the morning… and neither did I! Another long work day, but at least I got to curl up with a good book after the day was done.

maroon sweater // Loft
quilted vest // Deep South Pout
gold circle necklace // GroopDealz
black pants // Banana Republic
black flats // PayLess
I am loving vests this year! Keeps me warm in my freezing office, but it looks more put together than huddling in my jacket all day. For some reason this work week seemed super long… by the time Wednesday rolled along it felt like the longest week ever. More sewing after work to keep my spirits up. I am just not in the mood for working out or watching TV lately… must be doing something with my hands at all times. Tis the season, I guess!

Left work a bit early to get ready for the office holiday party.
Bonus! Terrible, shadowy night pic:

black tank dress // Loft
red cardigan // Target
bead necklace // Everyday Icing
red t-strap heels // eBay
Quick change after work for the party in Nashville. I pretty much wear the same outfit every year for holiday parties, but you know what they say… if it ain’t broke, dont fix it! Fun times at The Standard, a really cool restaurant in an old mansion in Nashville.
December 12

plaid button up top // Kohl’s
white cami underneath // Old Navy
silver leaf initial necklace // Etsy
skinny jeans // Old Navy via eBay
brown ankle strap wedges // PayLess
TGIF! I don’t know why the weeks in between holidays seem so long, but this week crawled by eventually. Worked a bit more at the sewing machine after work to catch up before Saturday’s guild meeting, then relaxed for a night of catching up on the DVR.

teal top with lace stripes // Loft
floral print scarf // Walgreens
jeggings // eBay
black boots // Belk
Super fun Saturday! First, the MCMQG meeting, with Dirty Santa (I came home with Tula Pink fat quarters!), Secret Santa Swap (my partner made a GORGEOUS wall quilt), and potluck dishes galore (Yum!). Then, a cozy afternoon at home… finished up a couple gifts and wrapped them, cross stitched a bit, and a movie on the couch… I love wintry days like this!
