Half a Week in Outfits

Alright, here we go. Getting back into the blogging habit. I thought I’d just show you my outfits for the past 3 days, which progressively got warmer and warmer. For Wednesday’s outfit, I was definitely feeling a more dressy outfit with dark colors to compliment the overcast and foggy weather. These are the best pictures I took of my sleep deprived self – I hadn’t had my coffee yet.

On top I am wearing this very loose and flowy shirt – it’s basically a circle skirt but with sleeves. I love wearing this because of the variety of ways you can drape it over your torso. On bottom I’m wearing a simple grey sweater skirt thats form fitting, so as to contrast with the looseness of my top. And then I’m just wearing sheer black tights and black flats, because I feel like sweater skirts/dresses look much better against tights than against bare legs. Over everything I am wearing a beige trench coat, and leaving it unbuttoned so that the outfit can peek through.

Wednesday afternoon, I was fortunate to stumble upon a thrift sale table that was using the proceeds to pay for a service trip to Honduras.

I left with two items: A ruffled, light-pink chiffon blouse, and high waisted black shorts. The next day, I made an outfit out of them:

I really love the buttons on the shorts, and I had the perfect light-green jean jacket to go with the top. I went for a very springy, soft toned look, and kept it as simple as possible.

On to today, I was going for a more grungy, sophisticated look, if you can use both those words in one sentence. Also, I’m patting myself on the back for making my ear look like a solar system. Or at least that’s how I see it…

On top I am wearing a purple, acid-wash t-shirt from Cotton On, and dark wash skinny jeans which I rolled up. I am really loving acid-wash right now – it makes the material so soft, and adds a minimal amount of grunge to an outfit. I wanted to keep this outfit simple as well, so I wore a gold leaf necklace from Aerie, and for styling purposes, a brown faux leather jacket.

Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for more outfits of the day!

I know the majority of us avoid wearing the skinny jeans, and instead go for leggings; but sometimes that dark denim really makes an outfit. I think skinny jeans look especially good with flowy tops and minimal shoes. In this case, I paired them with a loose floral top from Urban Outfitters, maroon Pesaro ankle booties, and a vintage pearl necklace.

I think this outfit gives off a chic, urban chick vibe! I wore a brown leather jacket on top, but forgot to take a picture. Overall, it’s a pretty simple outfit to put together, and it makes me feel a lot more confident going about my business.

Have a great Friday night 🙂
