What I wore Wednesday

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

Today is vest day if you are playing along!

This is last Wednesday.  I wore leggings, booties, black swing dress, vest, and scarf.  


Thursday I wore polka dot pants – old from Old Navy, butter tee, vest, booties, and necklace.  The booties were in bad shape so I said goodbye to them in my closet purge.  The pants might be headed there, too.  See how they are baggie in the legs and unflattering?  I find that to happen a lot with Old Navy pants for me.  I went to the funeral visitation in the top part of this outfit.  I swapped the pants for my black velvet Matilda Jane pants and wore my black Tory Burch flats.  

Friday I wore another swing dress, and a camel cardigan that I said goodbye to in the great closet purge.  I have never liked it.  It is too constricting and too hot so it ended up on my chair the whole day.  I wanted to try black tights with my clogs and I’m not sure I can pull it off but I was sure comfortable.  

Monday was blanket scarf day.  I realized from this photo that my shirt wasn’t long enough for these pants (thus the crop – you’re welcome).  Our heating is really intense and the vest came off and the scarf made me hot all day!


And, finally on Tuesday, which was long necklace day, here is my outfit.  I was the most comfortable on this day and really felt the most me.  I had on Tieks flats, MJ pants, waffle consignment tee, long KS necklace, and a vest.  

What have I learned from this week of outfits?  I have learned to not dress so warmly at school!  I really love the rule of three:  pants, shirt, vest.  I wish I liked to wear skirts and dresses in the winter as much as pants, but I just don’t.  I have also learned that maybe I wear too much maroon?  I don’t know – I like it and it works with black and brown.  

What have you worn lately?  Have you learned anything about your style or your winter clothes?  

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. I know you were watching MK and now that you have isn’t so easy to say goodbye to clothes you don’t love or spark joy? It sounds crazy but it’s true, why keep things we don’t love wearing? I always want to wear clothes I feel great in so if they feel too tight or restrictive it’s adios! I prefer pants in the cooler months too, even though tights are an option I feel like I’m warmer in pants. It can be so hard dealing with a too hot heater at school! I bet you are the most stylish teacher at school Amy!


    1. It really is easier! If you love everything in your closet even if it’s only 30 things you will always feel comfortable in your clothing. Taking photos really helps to see what looks good. I have lots of misses as you can see! You are too kind to say that. I just can’t see myself ever not caring or trying to be fairly on trend but I also want to have my own style. Do you ever miss getting dressed for work? Have a great day!


  2. Amy you look great in those dresses!! I was all set to wear my vest, but we ended up with an “ice” day…so woo hoo I stayed in pjs all day:))) Side note I was also glued to my book, so good, but also so real and raw!! Thanks for the recommendation!!
