What I Wore {post 35}

Hello and happy morning to you.  February is chugging along.

If I'm being honest, the What I Wore post should just be yoga pants and cotton tee-shirts.  I've been home a ton with the kids for snow days and that's what I have been wearing. But no one wants to see that.

Up today? Some more outfits!  Most of these have new pieces.

* Coral Scarf, Cream Sweater, Tan Pants *

This was a pretty boring outfit without the scarf.  And honestly I'm not sure that the scarf really worked.  I found it on clearance at Target for about $3.50.  I really loved the color and the pretty copper shiny circles on it.  I've wanted to try one of these infinity scarves and thought at $3.50 this was a good one to try. It felt a little ... ok a lot ... voluminous on me.  But I really liked the pop of color. I will try again and maybe do some online searching on how to wear infinity scarves.  I felt like I could store small animals or an extra lunch in there.  

* Printed Ruffle Shell, Cream Cardigan, Black Pants *

On one of the recent snow days, I had a meeting at the office.  The office was open, but schools were closed.  Thankfully, Amy and Bill's kids were off from school and they graciously offered to watch my kids while I went to my meeting.  I could have worn a suit but so didn't want to.  So I did a modified suit.  I wore my black suit pants (from the Limited) with my cream cardigan (Banana Republic).  I wore my brand new printed shell from the Ann Taylor outlet - it has red, yellow and black dots on it and a fun ruffle with black piping.  I think the shell will look great on its own with a black pencil skirt and a red belt when the weather is warmer.  Oh ... boo.  The first picture is blurry.  Drat.

* Wine Pin-tucked Blouse, Tweed Skirt, Pink Bow-Belt, Patent Mary Janes *

I based this entire outfit around the belt, which was a find from the Banana Republic outlet with Jamie a few weeks ago.  I really loved the gold bow and it was a great price.  I think I can wear it with some dresses, too.  I decided to wear it with my wine pin-tucked blouse that I bought from Loft and pink/red/black tweed skirt from Banana Republic.

Oh! And the shoes! The shoes.  I found these black patent leather Mary Janes at the Ann Taylor outlet with Jamie.  I've been wanting a pair of Mary Jane heels for years now (though, the ones I want are Manolo Blahnik and are pale pink).  The ones I want are also about $800 and these were on sale for $30.  They're super comfortable and I thought they'd look great with tights.  Here they are!

I still have a couple more new pieces from the outlets to show off, including two that are emerald green!  Stay tuned.

See you swoon,
