Things I Wore (And Did) in February 2018

All month long, I kept telling myself I just needed to get through February and I’d be that much closer to spring—and it ended up being a lot easier than I thought! It helped that February was overall a pretty good month, with lots of fun plans.

I had brunch plans with friends; had an incredible Valentine’s Day with my husband, which included spending time in the Berkshires and Mass MoCA; celebrated Galentine’s Day with friends; enjoyed bonding time with one of my close friends, Laraine, and her son, O; visited my grandma; went house hunting for Bill’s parents (who will be returning to Connecticut soon); and saw Black Panther. Can’t really ask for much more during an otherwise dreary and cold month!

Here’s what I wore.

This LBD from LuLaRoe is one of my favorites. I spent all last year thinking I looked best in LLR Nicole dresses and Perfect Ts… but it turns out the Julia dress is what truly has my heart. I love it! I have three Julias that are staples in my wardrobe, including this recent black purchase.

I rocked a version of this same outfit last month, but this time I went without leggings because it was a relatively warm day! Realizing now the bottom of the skirt was a tad wrinkly, but oh well.

My husband summed this outfit up best: “You Blossom-looking motherfucker.” He’s not wrong. (A friend pointed out the outfit is probably more like Six, but you get the point.)

Outfits of the Week: May 2, 2016

How is it May already? And why is it so cold even though it’s May? Like, it’s so uncharacteristically chilly and gray and rainy and sad that I’m starting to feel like I may never see the sun again. Sun, where are you? I miss you. Come home soon.

Here’s what I wore this week.

How cute is this sweater?! I found it while “shopping” in my own closet and digging through old clothes.

I felt cute enough in it to take a few selfies.

I also re-discovered this shirt, WHICH I ALSO NOW LOVE. Guys, shopping in your old, packed away clothes is the best. Everything is new again and you don’t have to spend any money!

  • Shirt: Fashion Bug (again, like, a zillion years ago)
  • Jeans: Old Navy
  • Shoes: Payless

Hope you had a good week!

It’s spring.

But it snowed on Monday.

This was my face.

I was not having it.

But I did love the hat I got to wear…

And, it made me appreciate New England and its ever-changing weather. So there’s that.

Here’s what I wore this week!

3-20monday

3-20wednesday

GUYS. These jeggings are my new favorite. I found them at Walmart (I was totally not there to shop for clothes, but these things happen, you know?). I had to resist the urge to buy 20 pairs, mostly because I’m going on vacation soon and really need to not be spending a gazillion dollars on leggings. So, I allowed myself one pair. And guess what? It rang up as $1. The clothes gods were in my favor that day, so now when I wear them, I feel extra great in them. One of my coworkers described them as “like buttah” which I loved, and I told Bill that they felt like wearing a warm hug. So good.

Outfit details

  • Leggings: Walmart
  • Top: Old Navy
  • Tank: Old Navy
  • Boots: Rainbow, I think?

3-20thursday

This was my fave outfit of the week. I love this dress! Here’s a close-up of the pattern.

HEARTS.

Hearts! And a little bow! Ahhh, I die. My work bestie described these hearts as reminiscent of the Webdings font and she could not have been more accurate.

Outfit details

  • Dress: Modcloth
  • Tights: WeLoveColors
  • Cardigan: Old Navy

3-20friday

And, to close out the week, some polka dots on polka dots action.

Outfit details

And, last (but certainly not least), my best Snapchat selfie of the week, using that filter that makes you look prettier than you are!
