It is already time to link up again for Fashion Files with Jill and Kellyann! If you are new around here I spend my days as a high school Spanish teacher in Kentucky.
I don’t have much for you this week because Covid knocked on my door. I tested positive a week ago yesterday and stayed home from school Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (I did teach online from home these days but I didn’t worry about my clothes), and of course, I stayed home Saturday, too. Sunday, I tested negative and did get out finally but I didn’t get an outfit photo. I got the booster in December so I am fully vaccinated and it was just like a little cold for me. The worst part was the isolation and the fear of spreading it to others.
So, Monday I was excited to get back to school! I wore my Amazon sweater, Target jeans, and Amazon sneakers. I didn’t get too hot in this sweater (the heat is pretty powerful in my classroom) and I will not wear anything even remotely itchy. This passed the test and ran true to size for me.
I kinda had a goal this week to wear all of my recent Amazon purchases. I wanted to return anything that just wouldn’t work when I got dressed in the morning.
Tuesday I wore my new Amazon skirt. It is really long on me and the waist is not too flattering on me with this combo, but I plan to try it another way. I also may take it to my tailor to hem. The skirt has pockets and it is decent quality. This ran true to size.
And, yesterday I wore my new Amazon puffy sleeve tee. I sized up one to two sizes in this. I haven’t washed it yet, but as it is true t-shirt material I expect it could shrink a bit. You can’t beat this price for the quality and I really think I may get black and white for spring. I really like everything I have gotten from the Amazon Essentials brand.
Like many of you, I have a love/hate relationship with Amazon for clothes. I have found that I need to spend a bit more to get the quality I want. I also really like to take certain bloggers’ recommendations because Amazon is so overwhelming. And, I have also learned that I must return anything that I have any doubts about. I just can’t quit you, Amazon. You make it so tempting and easy!
I have been a bit discouraged lately in my health journey. It is such a slow process. But, every now and then I see my progress and remember how far I’ve come. I found this photo in my camera roll from 2018.
I also know that I have made progress inside that cannot be seen in a photo.
What have you been wearing lately? Favorite outfit from above?
Thanks for stopping by!

I agree about Amazon – the Essentials brand is really well made and never disappoints. That pink puffy sleeve tee looks great on you! I haven’t purchased any clothes from Amazon in well over a month. I’m sure that will change once spring fever hits!
So happy you are linking up with me and Jill today!
It really is. Thanks! I really should order a couple more colors. It is just so tempting and so easy. I hate that I love it.
I am loving your skirt! I am trying to buy less clothes and just less in general on Amazon but I did get a cute dress that I will share on Monday. I’ve had to return a lot of dresses but usually have good luck with sweaters. And of course typically what I get I have seen on a blogger lol!
Thank you! Yup, me too, but I also need stuff! I have the best luck with sweaters, too, or Amazon Essentials stuff. Love Target.com for many things, too. I am easily influenced by certain bloggers that I trust!
I love the skirt! And the pink top is so cute! That will be perfect for spring. I wore pjs most of the day today 🤣 will probably repeat tomorrow as well haha
Thanks! I hope I can wear both well into spring. I am still making myself put on jeans most days. Lol! I did wear leggings for part of the day!
