What I Wore Wednesday (October 14)

Last Wednesday, I decided it was time to bring out my “work pants.” I paired them with a grey/white striped blouse and a grey cardigan. I really like the blouse/cardigan combo. Plus, the blouse is super comfortable.

On Thursday, the black pants made a repeat appearance when I paired them with the “work” blue/white striped blouse I recently got at Banana Republic on clearance. I like the outfit, but it’s dangerously close to my work  “uniform” (black (or grey) pants and a not too exciting top) I so easily get stuck in. I am determined not to let myself fall into a “ work uniform rut!"

On Monday, I made sure to switch things up with a dress, cardigan, and a scarf. It was chilly in the morning, and the scarf worked well, but it got way too hot later in the day. I brought a necklace to replace the scarf with. I know I have said this before, but I’m really looking forward to playing with scarves!

Yesterday was a hot day, but it was cool in the morning, and I was only on campus for a short time (and changed pretty much right after I got home). I kept things all black. I really like the top and didn’t want to distract from it with any jewelry.
Questions: What’s your favorite piece of clothing or accessory at the moment? I got two casual blouses on clearance at Banana Republic (each one was about $10 after various discounts) in the last few month (one is the grey striped one above and the other one I wear a lot on weekends; see it on Instagram here). I love how comfortable they are and how well they fit. I also got the “work blouse” above at Banana Republic recently; I like it, but it just isn’t as comfortable as the others.

Be Well,


  1. Your work pants are lovely! I really don't have a pair of nice classic black work pants, so difficult to find a pair that would fit me well!

  2. Love your black outfit!

  3. I'm loving the stripes in your first 2 looks! You can never have enough stripes :)

    1. You are right, Alecz! You can never have too many stripes! :-)

  4. You put together some great outfits! I love striped so I'm particularly partial to your striped blouses. I agree that scarves are a fun accessory. I need more in my life! I think my favorite piece of clothing at the moment is my Banana Republic trench coat!

    1. Thanks, Beth!

      And I agree, your trench coat is great!

  5. Great looks!!!
