It’s Thursday and that means time for Fashion Files along with some strange mirror faces from your girl, Amy. Yes, I am still bad at this! I am linking up with Jill and Kellyann.

I usually only take one photo, by the way. I am super professional! These are my actual outfits that I wear out the door!

Saturday, I finally wore my new Aerie toddler denim cutoffs. I call them “toddler” because of the nice elastic in the back. Why don’t more women’s shorts do this? I need a lower heeled sandal. These are just too high to wear with cutoffs – giving me the Daisy Dukes vibe. Anyway, I switched to flip flops for some Saturday errands. I think and hope this cream color will come in handy and cut offs are such a summer staple for me. I now have light denim, medium denim, pink, black, white, and cream. I have accumulated them over several years.

Saturday night and I wore white jeans and my TJ Maxx blouse – I am worried that I won’t be able to wear long sleeves for much longer and this has been one of my favorite spring blouses. Good job on this purchase, Amy! I was so hot, though, because the restaurant where we went had a malfunctioning AC unit! My friends were in dresses and I was so jealous. Oh well.

Sunday outfit and I broke out my old Amazon palm print skirt. It’s too long. I have to hike it up really high to be the length I want it.

Later in the day, I changed to my Target blouse and my Costco skort to go see a play. Nothing to write home about, but I was going to be sitting in a folding chair in the woods and I didn’t want to flash anyone while standing up, so I thought a skort would be good.

Monday for work I wore my tropical skirt (matches a top that is a bit too snug and not work appropriate – got both pieces at TJ Maxx last year) with my Old Navy chambray shirt. I changed shoes later in the day at work. Now this skirt is the perfect length. I hadn’t really thought about wearing it without the matching top, but I am glad I did. I think it would look good with a white blouse, too. The print makes me happy. Do you have anything you can separate in your closet that you hadn’t thought about before?

And, yesterday for work, I wore one of my favorite blouses and a long white gauzy skirt that I got for like $5 on the clearance rack at Chico’s a few years ago. Yes, I wore my Hobby Lobby sandals. I have hit rock bottom.

Here are some looks I want to try:

I have a pink and white gingham headband and a black and white gingham headband and pretty much all the elements in the above outfits.

I want to find a kitten heel sandal like this but probably in cognac:

Do you follow Lucky Peacock on IG? I love her style. I have all the elements below and have probably worn it, but this is a good reminder!

Where do you find outfit inspiration?

Are you adventurous in trying new trends and looks? Lewks?

What have you been wearing lately?

  1. We had a nice warm weather spell and I even pulled out some shorts earlier this week! Now it’s back in the 60’s and I’m having a hard time adjusting my outfits since I was really enjoying tank tops, flip flops, and dresses. I know that warm weather will be back to stay soon enough so I’m back to pulling out pants and long sleeve tops.


  2. I ordered a skort this week! It should come in today, so I’m super excited to try it on. I loved all your outfits this week- particularly the skirts. I am thinking of going back to Walmart to purchase a really cute pair of shorts I found- they’re kind of loose fitting and a great mid-thigh length. Have a great day, my friend!


  3. So many cute outfits! I love each and every one of them and all of the prints are so pretty. I have one skort which I really like and maybe I should find another one. Your white one reminded me that I need to see where I put my white little denim cotton skirt though. Maybe it’s still in a container. Searching for it I will go after school drop off!


    1. Aww thank you. Skirts have worked better for me than dresses because of being top heavy. I love to screenshot a look to try and it really does help you be content with what you have. You almost always have something similar!
