Wednesday, my day off, was spent doing errands. I slept in until 9 which doesn’t seem much like sleeping in but I get up at 5:30 on workdays. After some coffee and breakfast I took a shower and got dressed for the day. My first order of business was to put gas in my car and then drop it off for service. I knew that it would take some time so I requested a courtesy car.
My next stop was Wal-Mart for some cat litter, toiletries, and other miscellany. I didn’t have too much time to spend shopping because I had a doctor’s appointment at one. The doctor’s appointment was quick and easy–basically just a pit stop to have a quick test done and then I met my volunteer co-workers for lunch. I like the place that we went, but they close at 2:30 pm so it’s always hard because we meet around 2. After lunch I came home and deliberated on working out but I didn’t know if the dealership was going to call me to pick up my car.
In the end, I took a nap instead of working out and picked out my outfits for the 2nd half of the week. Then, I warmed up leftovers for dinner and my husband and I went to my parents to carve pumpkins.
My outfit for Thursday was based on this pin, here. I don’t have a brown leather jacket, but I do have a black one! And, I have black booties that give off a similar vibe to the boots in the photo. I do have a pair of lighter wash jeans that are a wider bootcut and a black belt. Here is my black leather version:
I did have a black infinity scarf with silver sparkles but I felt like the outfit didn’t need it. Also, I thought that I might be too warm and it covered the detailed neckline of the white blouse so I went without it. This is a basic black and white look but I didn’t feel that it was boring. Do you?
These are the two photo’s that I used for inspiration for the outfit that I wore on Tuesday. This was the outfit that I had planned for last week but didn’t wear. On Sunday I didn’t pick out my outfits for this week so I was sort of forced to wear this one. I did want to go more dressy on Tuesday, though.
I started with my dark grey Calvin Klein skirt. Then, I went a black and white polka dot patterned top. This top is a faux wrap top but it doesn’t seem to lay the right way. I put a black camisole underneath of it just to make sure that I was decent and covered. I layered my grey cardigan over top and added silver toned accessories. I had several options for shoes: black pointy toed heels, silver mary janes, and my black t-strap spectator shoes. Obviously, I went with the latter option.
Although my husband complimented my outfit when I arrived home from work Tuesday evening I really wasn’t digging it. I just felt slightly uncomfortable in this outfit. I think that the faux-wrap shirt is the problem because I’ve worn the other elements several times without any issues. That shirt might be going to the thrift store on the next closet clean out. . . .
Sunday afternoon I spent working on my Halloween costume for an outdoor family party that we are attending this weekend. Time got away from me and before I knew it the day was basically over and it was time for me to shower and get ready to go hear one of my favorite author’s, David Sedaris, do a reading.
Because I let the day get away from me I didn’t pick out my outfits for the week. Luckily, I have an outfit that I didn’t wear last week that I am planning on wearing Tuesday. But, this morning I still had to put some clothes on my body! I can’t say that this is the world’s greatest outfit or anything like that, but I was comfortable and it was appropriate for the 80 degree October day that we had in Ohio.
I went with a pair of lighter wash skinny jeans and a henley tunic that has a small bird print. I layered a light purple tank top underneath and rolled the sleeves for a more casual look. I chose my purple ballet flats and accessorized with gold toned jewelry.
There you have it— a pretty basic and easy outfit for Monday morning.
