Good morning, fashionistas,
We are gathered together today for another installment of What We Wore, featuring the outfits from the second week of the Get Your Pretty On Summer 2015 Challenge. I haven’t been completely faithful to wearing the outfits or posting my versions to the group’s Facebook page. But that’s the beauty of these challenges. You can wear the outfits when you want and the way you want.
So here’s what I wore:
Day 5 Lace Top + Bright Shorts + Colorful Necklace + Wedges
My ingredients for Day 5: Loft Outlet lace tank, Loft Outlet shorts, Target/Merona metallic sandals and necklace from Charming Charlie’s.
The last picture in the group above was taken hurriedly on Friday night as PC and I left for the Chihuahua’s Triple A baseball game. I had to take a picture because these are the relaxed skinny jeans my BFF Sharon sent me a few weeks ago. When I posted a picture of them the first time, there was nothing relaxed about them. They have loosened up nicely but I am hoping it is because I have been faithfully following my 30 Day Beginning Runner’s Challenge. All of my clothes are feeling more comfortable.
Day 6 Chambray Top + White Shorts + Sneakers + Hair Wrap
I didn’t style this outfit. I have a couple pairs of white shorts but I don’t really like them. In fact, I am not sure how they have escaped several recent loads to Goodwill. I need to find some new white shorts I like better. And the hair wrap. I haven’t committed to buying one yet. I did try them on at Loft Outlet last Friday. Does that count? I see a lot of the gals embracing this trend on our FB page but it makes me nervous. Day 7 Denim Vest + Maxi Dress + Wedges
My ingredients for Day 7: TJ Maxx Raindrops maxi dress (last summer), Loft Outlet denim vest, Payless Fioni tan wedges,Target Missoni black wedges, Miche petite bag. I have only worn my maxi dresses a couple of times. I need to break them out and start wearing them more often.
Day 8 Flowy Tank + Printed Shorts or Palazzo Pants + Metallic Sandals
My ingredients for Day 8: Gifted Flying Tomatoes palazzo pants from my sister Valerie (last summer), Converse flowy black tank (last summer), pink and orange Miche Demi bag/blue Miche petite bag, black wedges from Kohl’s, silver tribal earrings from Walmart, gifted silver cuff from my sister-in-law Metra.
Day 9 Graphic Tee+ Boyfriend Shorts + Sneakers
My (modified) ingredients for Day 9: I realized when I went to my closet to fetch my boyfriend shorts for this outfit that, lo and behold, I don’t have any boyfriend shorts. Must remedy that when I go shopping for the white shorts that I don’t have. So I put together this very loose interpretation of the Day 9 OOTD. Kohl’s Sonoma striped skirt ($11, my mom would be so proud), Loft Outlet graphic tee, cascade cardigan from StitchFix in the fall, Walmart leopard flats (last fall). I asked Paul to take these pictures and as I have explained before, he just snaps one pic after another after another til I realize what he is doing and try to grab my phone away (blurry picture of my neck).
Here are few random combinations I tried with some of the ingredients for this week’s outfits.
The navy, black and white palazzo pants are Fire from Steinmart. The multicolor bag is a Miche Demi.
When I did the ReDiscoverME Challenge with Alison early in the year, participants were asked to complete a variety of worksheets to help us redirect ourselves and our lives. One of the worksheets I keep tucked into my purse and on it I write down wardrobe items that I need to replace or upgrade. I will be adding white shorts and denim boyfriend shorts to my list of upgrades. Another item on the summer shopping list that I don’t have yet is a multicolored necklace. I went out in search of it yesterday at Charming Charlie’s but came up empty-handed. So I can’t check that off my Upgrades Worksheet yet.
Come back next week, same time, same place for the week 3 outfits. And to see if I have found my upgrades.
In the meantime, would love to have YOU link up to share a favorite outfit with us.
