What I Wore This Week

It was back to work this week so I actually wore clothes, not just nightgowns and bathing suits (lucky for you).

Day 1: On Sunday I went to a wake so was more “dressed” than I’d been all vacation.

Loft Plus dress, size 24, old. Similar here and here in plus size and here and here in straight size. Old Navy plus size duster cardigan, size 2x. Similar here in straight size. Taryn Rose comfiest shoes ever. This style no longer available, similar here.

Day 2: First day back to work outfit of the day. I went for easy dressing and fit to ease back into work. If I look a little mussed and creased it’s cuz I went to the beach after work and rolled the dress up into my bag while I was in my bathing suit.

Day 3: It was hotter again today, but it’s always cool in my office so my summer work outfits almost always include a cardigan.

Sheragano dress, size 22. Still available in other colors. Old Navy plus size duster length cardi – same as the black one above, just in “palomino.” Size 2x. 

Day 4: And then there was The Lazy Outfit of the Day. I got up early early to drive a friend to the airport before work and I just wanted easy peasy clothes. And sneakers Just in Case.

New Look plus size striped tee, size 3x, old. Comparable here and here in plus size and here and here in straight size. Gloria Vanderbilt Amanda jeans, size 22W short. 

Day 5:  I hadn’t intended to wear stripes two days in a row! I switched my Thursday and Friday outfits this morning when I realized how pleasant it was out – opting to wear the cardigan outfit today and the lighter outfit tomorrow. That’s why it’s nice to have the week’s outfits all planned out and hung up together – I can do last minute switches very easily, just grab another day’s hanger and I’m ready. I put all the items for each day on one hanger when I plan out the week – pants, dress, cardi, etc. Now if I could just stop accidentally hitting some key that deletes half my post, I’d be golden!

I put together a short video about the outfits where you can see them more “in action.” Pretty exciting stuff!

Hope y’all had a nice week and have a nice weekend ahead planned for yourself!

What I Wore This Week

It was one of those autumn weeks that ranges from 70 one day to 50 the next! Add to that the fact that we had a power outage in our area for almost 48 hours on the two coldest days, and I got a chill I couldn’t get rid of! Suffice it to say the plan for my weeks’ wardrobe went out the window and I found myself pulling from the fall/winter bin before I’ve officially changed my wardrobe from summer to fall.

Monday: Junarose Tie-Dye Blue Dress from plusBKLYN; Avenue Thermal Knit Waterfall Hoodie (old; similar here and here); cotton bandana.

Tuesday: Cat in the Hat hat, borrowed :-); Avenue cream long-sleeved tee (old, similar here); Old Navy black longline duster cardigan (sold out, similar here).

Wednesday: Karen Kane polkadot plus size swing dress (old, similar here or here); Rainbow burgundy fleece longline cardigan; vintage headscarf.

Thursday: Torrid plus size grey spacedye longline sharkbite cardi (old, similar here); JJill woman’s white linen blend tee (old, similar here); Charlotte Russe skintight legging jeans (similar here); vintage headscarf.

Friday: Junarose plus size abstract bird print dress (old, similar here); Oatmeal cardi (old, similar here); Oatmeal cotton chemo cloche by Headcovers Unlimited (old, similar here).

What are you wearing now at the beginning of November? Still in warm weather clothes, all the way into cold weather clothes…or somewhere in-between??
