Welcome to another week’s edition of What I Wore Wednesday! We have had high 70s and low 80s lately, along with some rain. It has just been so nice to be out of the 90s. Now if the mosquitos would just go bye-bye!
Last Thursday I wore this to school. I still think my tri-pod is moving. I have on my trusty Chico’s pants that I got at at a consignment store for $10 probably 8 years ago, my Steinmart poncho-ish top with my Reef sandals. If I had been wearing this anywhere other than school, I would have worn a higher heel, but I can’t be uncomfortable for a full day of teaching. I had to wear pants because I was taking my two afternoon AP classes outside and I planned to sit on the grass with them. I love this poncho and wanted to get another because it has fall vibes but is for warmer temps.
Proof that we went outside:
I think this was the day before but I can’t remember? I wore my fall-ish TJ Maxx blouse with my mustard pencil skirt and gold clogs.
Friday I gave up on the tri-pod and went next door to the French room to ask Elizabeth for a photo. We were supposed to wear all black for the football game, so I did as much black as I could. This is my Walmart dress and my black New Balances.
I did leopard accessories.
I get lots of compliments from the students when I go more casual. It’s funny!
Something big happened after school on Friday. I placed a Target jeans order because jeans were on sale for $15 and Tom had told me that a pair of jeans I tried to wear last weekend looked too big. I ordered two pairs of Universal Thread in the next size down and they fit. I am actually down more than one jean size because I couldn’t fit in my larger sized jeans last year. I fit in leggings last year. I wore “leggings size”.
I decided to keep two pairs of the exact style but one in a medium and one in a dark. They call these the mid rise skinny but I think they look more like a boot cut.
I cut and frayed the medium wash and I kept the darker wash intact. They are a bit long on me at 5’4, but I will probably wear them with a bit of a heel.
Ignore the pile of clothes in Mason’s room behind me.
These jeans are really good. They are not too thick and have the perfect amount of stretch.
I wore them Friday night and felt great in them. I know I have a long way to go, but a pair of jeans that fits is a wonderful thing. I forgot to get an outfit photo.
Anyway, I highly recommend them!
Saturday night I got to wear the Amazon dress out! I have worn it one other time to brunch. It is a bit staticky. I wonder if I wash it on delicate and let it line dry if that will take care of it. My Amazon palm print skirt had the same issue until I washed it. I love this print so much and I really am tempted to get another print, too.
Sunday, I wore this to sit by the river. I don’t do athleisure very well. I wore a black Walmart skort and this Target white top. Meh – there’s nothing special and I didn’t know what to throw on to just be casual.
And, yesterday I wore my Umgee tunic/dress from Amazon that I told you about yesterday during the Prime Purchases link up.
I made it more summery with the white leggings and sandals, but I would like to try it with a darker legging and boots or booties. Should I have kept it? I just love the print!
What have you been wearing lately?
