What I Wore Wednesday (October 28)

Here a some recent outfits and some thoughts on them.

I never thought I'd like pattern mixing, but I recently started getting really interested in it, probably because I have been seeing it a lot on Instagram and on blogs. And I now really like it and want to do it more and more. I previously paired the striped blouse with a pencil skirt that has a pattern. This time, I paired the vertically striped blouse with my horizontally striped maxi skirt. I really liked the outfit, and it was super comfortable. It was nice to wear the maxi skirt one more time before it gets too cold since I had only worn in once this summer.

Another super comfortable outfit were my dark skinny jeans paired with a red tunic with a long necklace. I felt really good & comfortable all day!  It’s amazing how what you wear can influence your entire day.

I bought the scarf in the next outfit many weeks ago and couldn’t wait to wear it. In fact, it got quite warm later in the day, so I only got to wear it for a few hours. I brought a cool necklace for the afternoon when I took off the jacket and scarf.

On Saturday we were busy running errands, going to a beerwalk, and to a birthday party. I was comfortable in skinny jeans, a grey tee, and a long cardigan. The interesting part of the outfit is the turquoise necklace, which I love.

On Sunday, I wore tights & a knit skirt that I got more than five years ago, but I had never worn them. I can actually see myself wearing them a lot! It’s good to take a long hard look at what’s in your closet once in a while! The skirt is a bit shorter than what I normally wear, but the tights are opaque, so I think the length of the skirt works.

Finally, on Monday I wore my Missoni for Target dress again. I previously wore it by itself, but this time I added a turtleneck underneath for warmth.

Questions: What’s your favorite accessory right now? I still love my necklaces but am getting more and more excited about scarves. I may have to add a new one soon…

Be well,
Andrea

    1. Thanks, Mica!

      It's so fun to get ideas for what to wear from blogs and IG; it's especially great if the items are already in your closet and you just wear them differently!

  2. LOVE that turquoise necklace.

    I also love scarves. Where I live they become a necessity during winter.

  6. It's funny but since I've been seeing your wear so much fun jewelry, I've been wearing earrings and bracelets to work and people are starting to wonder if I am interviewing! Ha - I wish I was :P That last outfit is my favorite :D

    1. Thanks funny! :-) And it's great that you are wearing more of your jewelry! For years, I always wore the same necklace; yet I had so many fun pieces to choose from (just inconveniently stored in the bottom of my closet...). Hanging most of it on the wall has made such a difference!

  7. It's so true about how what you wear affects how you feel! Right now the maternity clothes are not doing it for me (ha), but I'm looking forward to more creative dressing post-baby and I'm definitely learning from you! Love that scarf :)

  12. You look awesome! I have a few pieces of nice jewelry but I'm realizing lately I need some statement necklaces and some longer necklaces. I'm pretty good in the scarf department though.

  13. I just ordered two longer necklaces at Loft when sale items were 60% off. I hope they look like what I pictured... Still looking for the "perfect" layered, longer/shorter necklace. I guess, I have been also looking at necklaces... :-)
