Fashionistas and friends, coming to you straight from my fashion haus to share what I’m wearing lately 11.2019. I’ve been subbing a couple of days a week this month. Gotta make that money! And it gives me an opportunity to get dressed up a little bit more than I would for a day at home with the kitties.
What I’m Wearing Lately 11.2019
One of the activities on my 2019 autumn bucket list was: Share at least 6 outfits from GYPO fall challenge for My Fashion Haus posts. Which I did, here. But have really enjoyed some of the looks I’ve put together using the pieces from the GYPO fall capsule wardrobe and my fall Stitch Fix. So decided it was time to share again.

Stitch Fix Buffalo Plaid Cardigan
One of my favorite pieces from the GYPO fall capsule shopping list is a plaid blazer. When I signed up for my fall Stitch Fix, I requested a plaid blazer from my stylist. Promptly forgetting that, I went out and bought one at H&M. So when I saw this Buffalo plaid cardigan or sweater, I was relieved that it was completely different from what I had already bought for myself. I never think to buy red. Not sure why that is. This piece is making me rethink that.
Old Navy Bright Colored Pull-Over Sweater
Alison, at Get Your Pretty On, added a bright colored pull-over sweater to the fall capsule wardrobe shopping list. I ordered 2 lightweight sweaters from J.Crew Factory but fell in love with this more affordable chunky knit pull-over from Old Navy. Naturally, I had to buy it, too. All of this before we realized that PC’s job was in jeopardy much sooner than we were originally told. Might have to cut up these babies and eat them now.
H&M Plaid Blazer
This is the plaid blazer that I ran out to buy after asking for one in my fall Fix. Visited it at H&M twice before buying it. Kept hoping it would go on sale because the $49.99 price tag was a little more than I wanted to pay. But it was one of the nicest blazers I had seen. Fully lined, slightly over-sized, double-breasted. Oh, and shoulder pads!!
In the photo below, I wasn’t trying to ‘pose’ with a glance into the distance. I was truly distracted by all of the adorable things in La Placita market.
Banana Republic Wide-Leg Jeans
When I saw these wide leg jeans on the GYPO shopping list, I said ‘heck, no.’ And didn’t think about them again until I was in Banana Republic and came across this pair. Decided it wouldn’t hurt to just try them on. Lauren and Lucia who were shopping with me, gave them 4 thumbs up. I did, too. Have you tried this throw-back trend?
Can you tell where we are in the photo above? Here’s a hint…it is Sunday and we have just come from church. Yup, we are at the outlet mall. Our favorite place to get steps on Sundays. And on this particular Sunday we met up with Lauren and Lucia.
I have 3 sub jobs this week. Last Friday’s half-day assignment with first graders about did me in. Oh, man! But I caught my breath this past weekend. Ready to get back at it. Tomorrow, I sub for third grade, Wednesday will be a class of 3 year-olds. An entire class of Cias. Thursday is second grade, my favorite grade of all. At a campus where I subbed as the librarian for months.
