70 What I Wore posts? With very little repeats? Yes! And Yay.
And yay for weekend. Yes and yay. I can't wait. I have a long run and a visit from a dear friend for our favorite: steak, wine and chatter. She does my soul good. But before I head out for my fun weekend of goodness, here's a round up of recent outfits.
Navy Dress, Tan Cardigan, Brown Boots, Wine Tights
I loved this outfit. It was one of those throw together I think this will look good I'm not really sure oh wait yes it's good outfits. I started with a navy dress from j.crew. It's strapless, but it's fine in all seasons under a sweater. I paired it with a tan cardigan with ruffle trim from Target (years old) and wore my brown leather belt, which is sadly kind of hidden by my arms. I wore wine colored tights and my brown boots. It's a great end of Winter get the heck out of here Winter outfit.
Fuchsia Sweater, Black & White Sheer Blouse, Black & White Pin-stripe Skirt
This was another throw-together and hope it works outfits. I wore this on a day when I had a bunch of meetings but didn't want to wear a suit. I was happy with how it turned out. I tried to take a pic without my face and don't like the way that turned out at all. Even with my morning mean face, I think that's better than a faceless shot.
Grey Slouchy Top, Bootcut Jeans & Long Necklace
I *loved* this outfit! I had a party one night and the dress was casual but I didn't want to go too casual. I bought these jeans at Old Navy. In past years, I have sworn off Old Navy jeans as not flattering or comfortable but I decided to give them another try when I had a crazy promotion where I ended up paying about $17 for a pair. I couldn't not buy them and try. And I found that they've revamped their jeans. I went with the Flirt style in Crater Lake color (size 2 Short on me) and found that they are very flattering, with a higher rise and smaller back pockets than they used to be. The bootcut is a very narrow boot as well, which makes for a modern fit. Sold. I found the slouchy top at Nordstrom (Top Shop brand) and online it was about $30, which seemed a pretty good deal. I wandered into the store and found that it was on sale for $16. Um ... ok. I ended up buying it and its blush pink twin. I'm wearing a size XS, by the way. I wore my cowgirl boots from Austin Texas but the outfit needed something. I wore my long necklace from Talbot's (years ago on clearance) and think that made the outfit work.
There you go! Happy weekend! See you back here on Monday.
