What I Wore

Welcome back to another week of what I wore! I'm linking up with the ladies at Real Girl Style and the Pleated Poppy again, so check them out, too!

Outfit #1

I've been dying to wear this sweater, but it was still packed away in storage, so I had to do some digging to find it. I love me a floral cardi and this one had a special striped placket under the snaps - super cute. I love pairing it with this lightweight brown dress and yellow wedges.


I got these wedges last summer and absolutely love them. They're incredibly comfortable and a great way for me to wear yellow since I don't look great in it in large quantities.

Outfit #2

Another few items I've had for a while but haven't worn recently. But the shoes are new. :) I don't know why I have a shirt from Chico's - it's so not a store I shop in, but the ladies I used to work with shopped there a lot, so maybe we made a stop there when we were on a work trip or something? Who knows... What I do know is that I've had it for years and it hasn't faded a bit - quite an accomplishment with brown!


I don't have many pairs of brown sandals that I like, so when I saw these at the Rack, I decided to get them even though they're just a tidge (1/2 size) too big.

Outfit #3

When I wore my strapless maxi dress last weekend I determined that I really needed a new maxi that had straps or sleeves. Sometimes the strapless just isn't appropriate. I found this one at Target and it is looooooong! I hope it shrinks up a bit in the wash otherwise I'll never be able to wear flats with it. As it is, I'm wearing one of my highest pairs of wedges with it and it still touches the floor!

Outfit #4

Such a happy day! I'd gotten my hair done for the first time in more than 7 months the day before. The highlights look a little extreme after so long with dark roots, but I'll get used to them. And I am so much happier with shorter hair! He only cut off 4 inches, but it was so needed. Now, onto the outfit! Usually a shirt this long would really stumpify me since I'm only 5'4", but for some reason it doesn't. And I think it helps that I paired it with sky high wedges. I absolutely love this shirt - the body is a lightweight linen blend and the top part is a slightly sheer knit. The color is unlike anything else I have, too, so that's how I justified buying it. It is super comfortable, too!

Outfit #5

Casual weekend wear. I saw Lindsey at the Pleated Poppy put together an outfit with these colors - hers was watermelon pink shorts and a lime necklace - and it inspired me to wear this. I like it enough, but I still wish I had what she has. :( Though I will never have shorts like hers; I do not do short shorts - my thighs just do not look good in them whatsoever. So long shorts it is for me. It's not so easy to find them, especially this year, but I've had these for a couple years.

That's all I have for now! Please stop by again next week for more outfits!
