Back again for another addition of What I Wore Wednesday! I putting this together a little late on Tuesday (I've been posting early on Tuesday for Real Girl Glam), but I totally tuned out from the world today. After texting in sick to the boss man, checking facebook and email once, all I did was read and nap all day long. I felt exhausted, like maybe I'm fighting a cold, but that's not it. I think I'm actually fighting a slight depression - nothing to worry about - but it makes me really anti social and lazy.

But that's not why you're here - you're here to see what kind of outfits I put together this past week! So, without further adieu, here they are! (Of course I'm linking up with the Pleated Poppy and Real Girl Style!)

Outfit #1

I wore this to an interview last week. The good thing about my line of work is that proper suits aren't really expected, or necessary, or really even wanted at an interview. Though being professional looking is still desired, so something like this is totally okay for an interview. And, of course it snowed, again, so the black tights haven't been packed away yet. Unfortunately, I didn't get the job. But they thankfully let me know the next day, so I wasn't left wondering forever. And it's honestly not devastating because though I really want a new job, I wasn't totally psyched about this one.

Blazer - Talbot's / Shell - Soprano via Nordstrom Rack / Skirt - Target / Tights - Assets / Shoes - Coach

Outfit #2

Wearing my new favorite color combo - navy and bright pink! John and I had a really great lunch this day at Lucile's - a place with New Orleans style food. I've never been there because it's usually packed, but this day wasn't so that's where we went. Such good comfort food. So, so good. I even liked John's grits.

Blazer - INC via Macy's / Top - Loft - $20.65 sale / Pants - H&M / Shoes - Nine West

Outfit #3

Casual Friday. I realized how much I liked this jacket when I wore it last week, so I pulled it out again and wore it with the belt that came with it.

I also pulled out these shoes that I last wore in the fall. I'm planning on putting away all of my fall/winter shoes and since these are suede, they'll be in storage soon, but I wanted to wear them one last time. (To me, suede isn't a material well-suited to spring and summer.)

Jacket - St. John's Bay / Tank - Old Navy / Jeans - Levi's / Shoes - Anne Klein

Outfit #4

I wore this out on Saturday to two different birthday parties. One friend had her big 3-0! And the other had his 40+1. That's what he called it, but who am I to judge when I just celebrated the first anniversary of my 35th birthday? :) The top is new and the sandals are showing their face for the first time this season.

I also gave myself a quick pedicure with this totally springy peachy color - Essie's Tart Deco.

Cardi - Target / Top - ANA via JCP - $18.00 / Necklace - White House Black Market / Jeans - J. Jill / Sandals - Nine West

Outfit #5

I found this cardigan at the bottom of a pile and decided it needed to be worn. And since it was snowing - AGAIN - I actually needed the warmth. I really like the colors of it - the plummy purple/pink, grey, brown, off-white. It's kind of springy, which I needed on this snowy day. (Can you tell I'm completely sick of winter and ready for spring?!?)

Cardi - Target / Tank - American Living / Pants - AB Studio / Shoes - Coach

That's it for the past week. Hope you enjoyed my outfits and stop by again!


  1. Love all the outfits. Especially that jacket with belt!

    I've only been to Lucille's once, but it was so good!!

  2. I think your printed cardigan is my favorite piece! But I'm such a sucker for prints - maybe it would look super cute with the White Pants - or too much white? Anyways - great styling! :) Visiting you via the Real Girl Glam link up :)

    1. Thanks, Nikki! I'll have to try that outfit - sounds good to me! I love prints, too. Next on my list is a brightly colored floral cardi. :)
