It's all good again

Worn Oct. 22, 2014 PM
 
I wore this to mid-week church service Wednesday night. When I come home from work, I like to put on shorts, sweats or pajamas and stay in them until the next morning. I have to really make myself dress and go out again on Wednesday evenings. This was as close to pajamas as I could get. It was comfortable but still appropriate for public.  It's the tout va bien graphic tee I wore a couple of weeks ago when it was hot, but the temps have cooled off so I was able to add a cardigan. I was inspired by this oufit by Love Lucy Girl. I'm getting more wear out of my sneakers this fall than I did in the summer.

Black, white and grey







 
Blazer- Dress Barn option option
blouse- JCrew Factory (says sold out but still available as final sale)
skirt- Target (thrifted) option
shoes- JCPenney option option
necklace- JCrew Factory
 
You can tell from the post title that this outfit is black, white and grey, but let me clarify again, it is black, white and grey. As the days shorten, I begin to have color cast issues with photos, so this looks navy on my monitor. If it looks that way on yours, it's black, not navy.
 
Where do you find outfit inspiration? I find it in all places- other bloggers, store mannequins, online ads. This one came from the Nordstrom website.
 
And here's a look back at how I wore this skirt in the spring:

Inspired by another




 
Vest- Kohls option option
shirt- Old Navy- thrifted
jeans- Levis
booties- Piperlime  option option
necklace- online boutique option  option
watch- Fossil option
worn- Oct. 21, 2014
 
I'll come straight out and tell you, this outfit was inspired by Lauren at Fizz and Frosting.  I don't have the jeweled tee, but adding a necklace to this one gives it pretty much the same effect. When I saw her outfit, I knew I had to wear this recently thrifted shirt this way. I almost didn't buy this shirt  because I probably have too many long sleeve tees that don't get worn. But who can resist stripes? And now I'm glad I bought it.

Beige utility jacket




 
Jacket- Old Navy (old)
shirt- Old Navy (thrifted)
jeans- Levis similar
shoes- Target option  option option
necklace- online boutique  option  option
 
I have this jacket for sale in my Poshmark closet and had someone ask me to model it. I have no blog photos of it because I never really wore it much, so I decided to do a quick post on styling a utility jacket. This one is a very light layer that is perfect for fall. I just threw it on with a striped long sleeve tee, jeans and leopard flats. Pretty neutral, but it works. (The jeans and tee are the base of the outfit you will see tomorrow.)
 
In the third photo the sleeves are worn down, but this jacket has zippers in the sleeves so I unzipped them and turned them back to show a little of the shirt sleeves in the first two photos. The zippers make this jacket easy to cuff for a modern look.

Here are a few other ways I'd style this jacket, pulled straight from Pinterest:

Plaid

jeans- Loft
necklace- JCrew factory

It finally cooled off last week after we came home from our trip, so I was able to wear jeans again and my new plaid shirt. I have four other plaid shirts, but they are all flannel and it's still too hot for that. I have been on the lookout for a plaid that is not flannel. I finally scooped this one up from JCrew Factory during a sale. Really, what do I buy that's not on sale? Very little of anything in the clothing and jewelry department. I will admit I did pay full price for these booties, but I had rewards certificates so my out of pocket expense was a whole $9. These booties have been all over blogland and I'm sure that over the years I will get my money's worth out of them, even at their full cost.

Summer in fall


 
Tee- Loft
shorts- Old Navy
shoes- Payless option
scarf- online boutique option  option
Worn Oct 9, 2014
 
I really hope this is the last of the summer outfits in fall. This was worn week before last when the temps were still in the high 80s. I tried to be more fall like with the scarf, but even it had to go by the afternoon.
 
I'm short on words because it has been a whirlwind since we came back from our trip. My husband had a medical test that didn't go well and resulted in a trip to the ER. The last four days have been stressful and I've been home with him. Needless, to say, the outfit worn to the ER didn't make photos and won't be published.

It's All Good



 
tee- JCrew
skirt- Old Navy option  option  option
sneakers- Macy's option  option
bracelet- Target option  option
 
I really wanted to wear a more fall like sweatshirt version of this outfit, but with temps in the high 80's last week, that wasn't an option. If you're stuck in the southern states like me, maybe this will be a little inspiration to you. If you have cooler temps, add a denim or moto jacket. I think either one would be cute. At least I can be grateful for the opportunity to wear this tee I picked up on clearance just before I did the 30x30 challenge.
