Fashionista friends, pulling off the yoga pants just long enough to share a handful of Covid-19 quarantine looks. I’ve shared several times that I don’t see a whole lot of point in getting dressed in much more than active wear these long days at home. The kitties haven’t complained yet and at least we are being active in our active wear. Running, walking and enjoying some great workout videos from Hasfit. In case you missed, here’s my wellness weekend post that talks more about that.
But today, at least for now, we are talking about some of the pieces I picked up for the Get Your Pretty On spring capsule wardrobe. Felt good to be wearing something without that spandex-y stretch to it. Definitely a reality check. Not gonna lie. Things were a little snug. PC says we are getting back on Weight Watchers pronto. I think I better be.

Quarantine Looks from the Spring Capsule Wardrobe
We are currently styling Day 24 of the Get Your Pretty On spring capsule wardrobe. I haven’t tried every outfit formula because none of them feature yoga pants and tees and sports bras. Ha! But I did play dress up a couple of times lately. Here are a few of the quarantine looks I wore just to stay at home.
Gray Sweatshirt and Pink Pants
The outfit below was my version of Day 18, colorful bottom + gray top + denim jacket + white tennies or neutral shoes. Because I went with a simple gray sweatshirt, I didn’t add the denim jacket. But I could switch it out for a gray tee and wear the jacket on our chilly spring evenings.
I saved these Loft Outlet pink pants from the big purge in February. They are loose – not as loose as they were pre-quarantine. When I saw this color on the spring capsule wardrobe shopping list, I saved them from the big consignment store in the sky. Paired them with my gray sweatshirt, pink freshwater pearls, and snakeskin flats.
Floral Sweatshirt and Same Pink Pants
In the next outfit I subbed in a Loft puffy sleeve floral sweat shirt for the gray one above. Really like my new birthday fitness tracker with these pants!!
You can’t see it in the photo, but added a pink beads with a green tassel to dress this up a notch. Love the colors in this top.
Below, same outfit but traded olive loafers for the snakeskin flats. Which shoe do you prefer? This taupe-peach-brownish snakeskin print is a little different than the standard black and gray snakeskin. Maybe my shoes are faux copperhead snakeskin??
Navy Tee Shirt Dress
The dress below was a pleasant surprise. Loft Outlet sandwashed tee shirt dress. It has an elasticized waist and POCKETS! So comfortable. I can see myself wearing this to PC’s ball games with my baseball bling (still looking for this darling baseball bra), once the quarantine is lifted. Maybe with a cute baseball-themed scarf?
In the photo below, I changed things up a little to follow the Day 7 outfit formula of neutral cardi + solid dress + neutral shoes. My scarf has a nautical print. Just remembered I have some darling navy and white anchor earrings I should try with this scarf. Yellow and blue are a winning color combo in my book, and then I added my white booties to ‘fancy’ things up.
Floral Twist Tee and Green Pants
This next top was a birthday surprise from my sissy. The colors are my very favorites…greens and coral-y/peach. I like the longer length of the tee. The twist makes it a little more special than my other print tees. Paired it with Old Navy Rockstar colored denim. Love that shade of green. It’s not exactly bright green and not olive, either. A happy mix of the two. Added my pink Merona flats but not sure they work with the colors in the top. What do you think?
The green in these pants looks nice with the drapes in our guest bedroom!! Didn’t notice that til now. If I could sew, I would channel my inner Scarlet O’Hara and make a top or kimono from them.
Utility Jacket, Lemon Tee and Skirt
This look is an interpretation of Day 24’s denim jacket + white tee + colorful bottoms + neutral shoes. And at this point, we’ve come to the outfit that was tighter than I like. Old faithful Dressbarn utility jacket instead of the denim jacket. I paired it with a new Loft Outlet yellow Dobby button shift skirt and a lemon print white tee.
The skirt is the piece that’s a little snug. Need to get back at those sit-ups. Actually started today. And tracking Weight Watchers points, again, too. I like the olive loafers with this outfit.
Here’s a close up of the tee. It has cute little tie details on the sleeves. Added some yellow chandelier earrings. Just want the skirt to fit more comfortably. Hopefully by the time I can wear it somewhere beside my backyard, it will!!
I needed a haircut in March before I went to mom’s but decided to hold off until I got home. Big mistake. At this rate I could be a gray-haired lady Godiva before the salons in El Paso open back up. The gray isn’t as much the problem as the length!!
When you aren’t in pjs or yoga pants, what are you wearing these days? What are your favorite quarantine looks? I know all the experts say we need to be dressing for our day. And I am certainly not in favor of running around naked but this has been a great opportunity to catch-up and stay caught up on my ironing!!
Off to eat some pie. Yeah, I know, my yellow skirt is tight. And we just began Weight Watchers today. But consider it research for an upcoming recipe swap blog hop.
Hugs and kisses,
