I challenged myself this past week to wear a “fashion blogger” outfit every day. My word has a pretty casual dress code so it’s very easy for me to fall into the trap of just wearing a sweater, leggings, and boots. I wanted to dress up so that I could take a picture every day before work and have them be up to my blogging standards.
Last weekend I went on a shopping trip because I wanted to add more pastel “spring” colors to my wardrobe. I ended up going to Target and Nordstrom Rack. (In my town the two stores are right next to each other because someone was a genius with planning). I was really excited to share with all of you what I bought and I couldn’t think of a better way than a “what I wore this week” post. I documented what I wore each day and in this post have shared with you why I wore it and what I paired it with.
I have had my eye on this Marley Lily monogram pullover for awhile now and it finally went on sale last week! Yay for sales! I have always been a sucker for monogram pieces ever since I got my first monogram necklace from Etsy. This pullover is made of super soft cotton and it felt like I was wearing a cozy sweatshirt all day. I decided to go for the “I’m way to tried to dress up today” look and wear my pullover with leggings and sneakers. Perfect outfit for a Monday.
I shared this sweater with you all in my color of the year blog post. This front tie sweater is from Target and amazingly soft. If you didn’t know already I will buy anything that is soft and looks like it will keep me warm (because I am ALWAYS cold). This sweater comes in a variety of colors and can easily be paired with neutral color jeans. I opted in for light was distressed skinny jeans because it really made the color of the sweater stand out. My bag is also from Target, part of their A New Day collection. I use this little bag so often because I don’t always need to carry my giant tote bag full of everything with me.
Okay, this sweater from Topshop is the one I was most excited to show you guys. I bought this at Nordstrom Rack for 50% off the original price. I found a “New Arrivals” rack in the store and that is basically where I got everything. It is just like my favorite BP sweater that has the open-dot pattern down the middle of the sweater and on the sleeves. I wore this sweater out to dinner for my dads birthday and he jokingly asked if I was supposed to thread a shoelace through the holes (lol, no dad). The sweater is a light pastel pink color that is perfect for spring. I paired it with my most comfortable pair of blue skinny jeans and heeled boots from Charlotte Russe.
This outfit is my “we had a meeting at work and I wanted to look put together” look. This sweater is also from the brand I love, BP. They make the softest clothing. I felt like I was wearing a blanket all day. I paired it with my black skinny jeans from Target and my favorite black loafers from Lord and Taylor. This “Gucci” belt I got from this Amazon listing, and I wear it all the time and people love it! Besides from the loafers being tight on my feet because I forgot to stretch the leather out, I was very comfortable all day.
I was really excited to wear this top because the sleeves are SO much fun! It felt like I was part of a parade all day waving my arms around. I found this top by accident in the store. I was trying on all the clothing I was going to get and this top was left in the dressing room by someone else. It was so cute that I tried it on and loved it! I tucked the top into white jeans and wore it with black ankle booties.
This was fun week of putting together outfits and being excited about what I am going to wear each day. I will defiantly be writing more posts like this because it was so much fun to take pictures every day.
