What I Wore Lately Vol. 129

What I Wore Lately Vol. 129

Greetings on this fine Wednesday morning, and first day of May! I’ve got a new addition of What I Wore Lately for you today. These are my everyday outfits, so they can be a bit redundant, but that’s probably realistic for most of us. At least, I’m finally out of The Boot!


I also wanted to let you know that Bloomingdale’s just upped the ante on their current Bonus Points promo. Now through May 5, Loyallists get an extra 60 points per dollar — 30% back in Rewards! — on select regular priced Fine Jewelry and Watches.

That includes LAGOS and Michele, and lots of other designer brands. Look for items labeled EXTRA 60 POINTS PER DOLLAR FOR LOYALLISTS. I’ve been wearing these LAGOS hoops and X ring non-stop lately, and I also love these link drop earrings. Also, my Michele watch is a huge splurge (it was a Christmas gift from Paul) but if you’ve been considering one, this is the best way to get a cost savings on items that never go on sale.

Okay, without further ado, let’s get started! As usual, I linked up available options for sold out items, and similar for less options where I could.

What I Wore: Two Weeks of Everyday Outfits

SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and I usually wear a small in tops and dresses, a 29 in jeans, and a size 8 shoe. Gifted items are indicated by c/o; everything else I purchased myself.

It was exactly two weeks ago when we flew out to Dayton to see our daughter perform with her indoor percussion ensemble at the World Championships. These photos are a good reminder of how much progress I’ve made in the last two weeks! I was just starting to wear athletic sneakers with an ankle stabilizer instead of The Boot.

It was an evening flight, and we went straight to our hotel, so I decided to keep it comfy on the plane with my favorite yoga pants. It was a fairly chilly weekend, but no rain, so I wore my Vuori insulated jacket because it’s warm and cozy, and it went with everything in my suitcase.

Our first day in Dayton was fairly mild, so I wore this smocked tank with jeans to work at the hotel that morning. I threw the Vuori Halo Jacket on top when we went to the competition that afternoon.

Our second day was a little colder than the first, so I wore a long sleeve top. I wore this same henley and jacket with the black flares on the plane to go home the next morning.

Back at home, I wore this outfit for a casual dinner out with Paul. I decided to try a straight ankle jean with my running sneakers, for a change from the flares, but I think the flares look better because they cover up that hideous ankle stabilizer.

This is one of my go-to PT outfits, and I also wore this to a doctor appointment with my daughter afterwards.

Just a casual day working from home, and an appointment with my podiatrist to follow-up on my ankle injury.

I wore the same sweatshirt the next day with straight ankle jeans. My podiatrist told me I could start weaning out of the ankle stabilizer, so I wanted to see how I felt in the Paul Green Hadley sneakers.

Our weather suddenly warmed up, and I jumped at the chance to wear shorts!

I had a few appointments the day I wore this fun transitional look. Definitely my favorite outfit of the past two weeks!

And I threw on this casual outfit to go get my nails done last Friday. It’s always chilly in there, so I added this comfy hoodie, but ooof… I like the relaxed, boxy style of this Madewell stripe top better without a jacket. It at least needs a more structured style.

In the future, I’ll remember to wear a more fitted tee or tank with this slouchy hoodie. It’s a good one, though. The girl doing my nails even commented on how it’s such a cute, cozy piece. Sadly, my navy is sold out, but there are several other colors that are fully stocked.

I changed for a high school jazz band performance that night, where my daughter was performing on the vibraphone. My jacket is from last year, but this one is similar.

Then on Saturday, we attended a music festival, where our daughter was performing and helping to manage the event. I thought my Grateful Dead tee was appropriate! It had turned chilly, so I decided at the last minute to throw this pink jacket on top.

I really wanted to wear cuter sneakers, but I felt like I needed the ankle stabilizer after going without the day before, so I went back to the Brooks!

We came home to rest and ice my ankle before going over to see some friends that night. I wasn’t planning to change, but the leg of my jeans got soaked when the ice bag leaked. I ran up to grab a different pair and decided I’d be more comfortable in this cozy pullover, so I changed the whole outfit.

I didn’t end up wearing the VEJAs — they don’t have enough cushion without the brace, and they are too small with the brace, so I ended up back in the Brooks again, but this is the only picture I got.

Since I can finally wear fashion sneakers, I decided to break out my new strawberry-pink wide leg jeans for church on Sunday, and I tried the outfit with two different denim jackets.

I like the darker wash on the AG Chiro with this outfit, but I felt like the shorter jacket created a more pleasing proportion with the wide leg pants.

I also feel like these jeans could be a smidge shorter, especially with the sneakers. I’m going to leave them as-is for now, but I might give them a little chop once I start wearing them with sandals, if they still seem too long.

Here’s the final look. I decided not to wear a belt, since any color I chose would have created a contrast against the white tee and pink jeans, and I didn’t want to draw attention to the waistband of the jeans.

It was a warm afternoon, and we were just hanging out at home, so I changed into a t-shirt and shorts for the rest of the day. Old Navy has a simliar pair of jean shorts for a lot less.

On Monday, I met a friend for lunch, and I wore this Frank & Eileen polo dress, which I love. It is so flattering! But also pricey, so I rounded up a few similar options for less.

And that’s a wrap! I didn’t go anywhere yesterday, so I just wore jean shorts and an old tank top, and I forgot to get a picture.

Next time, I hope to have a little more variety in my footwear, as my ankle continues to heal, but I have to be careful. It swells up when I’m on it too much, and the heat doesn’t help at all. It’s going to be a long time before I’m back to normal, but I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made since I ditched The Boot.
