This month, I am doing Jeans January. I only have 19 school days in January, believe it or not. Erica (my meal prep partner at work) is doing it most days, too. She said, “This is painful”. Yup, it is. Both of us have tight jeans. Sad. Tight jeans feel bad.
Another challenge I am doing is 23 in 2023. I feel like we are almost halfway through the month and so far, so good. I am really trying not to add more winter stuff, but stuff that can be worn in the spring, at least. I have a feeling I am going to eat my words and be super tempted by some amazing deals.
I also plan to look at what I have and see how I can spruce it up, if needed. Does anything need to be hemmed, do I need to use a sweater shaver to make something look better, can I feel like I have new sneakers by changing out the laces? Anything got a good sweater shaver rec? Also, I have ordered new laces for a pair of sneakers that I will show you at the end of my post.
Unfortunately I did not get a full body picture, but this is what I wore to go out to eat last Saturday:
I wore a last season Loft 3/4 length sleeve blouse with my brown Chico’s faux leather pants, and my Hush Puppies nude suede pumps. I am really trying to wear both pairs of pants when I go out since they really aren’t school pants.
My tripod photos just aren’t that clear. I wore this on Monday. It is a hot pink sweater I got from an online boutique, jeans, my brown Danskos, and my new hot pink Gucci-esque bee earrings. The students really complimented my sweater.
Tuesday I wore jeans, brown Jack Rogers booties, an old suede kimono with a burgundy tank underneath.
And, yesterday I wore jeans, my new consignment Cabi blouse, and my New Balance. I wore the New Balance because a girl wanted to know if I liked them so I wore them to show her.
I saw an IG ad and it sent me shopping on the Old Navy website. Remember that I have $100 from Christmas to spend in addition to my 23 in 2023 challenge.
I ordered a cream blouse which I have been needing/wanting to wear with my brown faux leather pants. I couldn’t pass up the Vive Feliz (Live Happy) t-shirt for only $3, and the piece that sent me there in the first place…
I thought I could wear it now and into the spring.
I got the idea from Things I Bought and Liked on IG to order some green laces to put in my white leather Madewells. I wanted the laces to be shorter so I don’t have to tie them, but I think they look kinda cool.
So, that’s my fashion for the week!
What have you been wearing? Do you have any favorites of mine?
