What I Wore Lately Vol. 124

Happy Wednesday! It’s time for another edition of What I Wore Lately, which is a roundup of my everyday outfits over the past couple of weeks.


What I Wore Lately: 2 Weeks of Everyday Outfits

I wore this first outfit to meet a friend for lunch a couple weeks ago. It was a chilly day, but bright and sunny. I always love a light neutral outfit, and the way the plaid coat adds a subtle pattern to the look.

I don’t love the rounded toe boots with the flares, though. I chose them because they have a lot block heel and are good for walking on uneven sidewalks, but an almond-shaped toe would look a lot better.

This is another old favorite Vince sweater that I’ve had for several years. Both this and the one above were purchased at a deep discount at Saks OFF 5TH. It’s always worth taking a look to see if they have any good finds from your favorite designer brands.

Conventional wisdom states you should wear flares with heels, or at the very least a pointy toe flat, but I’m kind of liking these with sneakers right now. It just has a laidback, casual vibe that appeals to me, and I feel like the chunky shoe and width of the leg opening balance my hips and shoulders.

Another casual outfit… my life has been pretty ho-hum lately. I do love this pullover right now, though. It’s fun and different from my usual sweaters. A great little transition piece!

This is what I wore to meet a friend for coffee and then to drive down to Cape May for a weekend getaway with Paul. This Z Supply pullover is another Evereve find that’s a nice weight and super soft inside.

I’ve been reaching for these tops more than my sweaters lately, even though it’s still very cold here in Philly. I’m kind of tired of sweaters, and these are a nice change of pace. Plus, they’re wash-and-wear, whereas I dry clean most of my sweaters.

I changed for the evening, once we got settled into our room at Congress Hall. We went to Grana BYOB for an early Valentine’s Day dinner, and I highly recommend it, if you’re ever in the area!

I wore my new Frank & Eileen button-up and pants the next morning for a hotel tour, but it was cooler than I anticipated, so I changed before we went out to check out the shops and walk the promenade.

When we went out, I wore the same outfit that I traveled in the day before, but with a different top. This is the promenade, which runs along the beach. It was paved after the last wooden boardwalk was destroyed in a nor’easter.

I changed yet again to go to dinner that night. It probably wasn’t necessary, as we ended up just going downstairs to The Boiler Room at our hotel, which is very casual.

I wore my comfy Spanx set to drive home on Sunday. I was going to bring my new Frank & Eileen travel set, but I thought I’d prefer long pants since it was so chilly.

I spent the next day at home, mostly working and catching up on house stuff, so I kept it casual and comfy with these Vuori pieces. You might say I have a thing for black matching sets. This one is especially cozy and nice for chilly winter days.

I have no pictures of what I wore last Tuesday. All I remember is spending half the night in the ER with my daughter.

The next day, I got dressed to go to a few appointments, and it was freezing, so I wore my faux shearling coat.

These are the same jeans as I wore with sneakers, above, and while I still like the more casual look, I have to say, I like them even better with a pointed toe heel. These boots are perfect with them.

I changed to host some friends that night for dinner because I thought I probably didn’t want to wear a white cashmere sweater to make tacos.

I think I like this top better with black jeans, as worn above, but it works with blue jeans too.

Thursday morning, I was all dressed and ready for a photo shoot, when my daughter came into my bathroom with a weird rash, so back to the ER we went! (We later learned, that is a rare complication of mono.)

I actually took this picture the next day, after a nail appointment… notice the color change; I recreated the look since I had forgotten to get one on Thursday.

This is what I actually wore on Friday, and yes, I realize I showed pretty much this same outfit at the top of the post, but that’s the partly the point of sharing what I wear…

I have no problem repeating outfits, in fact, I highly recommend it. These pieces are all pricey, and I’m always preaching cost per wear.

Speaking of which, I wore the same jeans and sneakers again on Monday. (I don’t have any pictures from Saturday and Sunday; I was pretty worn out, and didn’t do anything with myself. We were back in the ER on Saturday evening to recheck bloodwork and make sure things were trending in the right direction.)

Finally, yesterday I wore a different pair of jeans! I have a women’s Bible study I like to attend, but I’ve been pretty sporadic in my attendance as of late, and twice they’ve called a snow day. I finally got myself over there yesterday, and I’m so glad I did. I always leave feeling encouraged and focused on what really matters.

And that’s it for this week! I always feel like I need to apologize when my outfits are this redundant, but again, that’s sort of the point.

Most of us have something of a seasonal uniform we fall back on, especially during stressful times. I haven’t felt especially creative with outfits lately, and it’s comforting to have some go-to wardrobe pieces and outfit combos I know I can throw on without much thought and feel comfortable and put together, no matter what curveballs life throws at me.
