Last Week’s Looks vol. 4

Hi! I hope your week is off to a good start. Last week I sort of challenged myself to wear my wardrobe in new ways, including wearing things I hadn’t worn for a while. This was a precursor to the big closet clean-out I just did with ThredUp (more on that in a few weeks). So, not everything could be linked exactly, but hopefully, these looks will help inspire you to wear your existing clothes in a new way.

I was able to start last week on a more casual note, so I wore one of my favorite cashmere sweaters. Why is my favorite? Because it doesn’t cost a small fortune and comes in lots of colors! (it’s on sale right now for $69) Plus, my all-time favorite scarf that I can’t find anywhere online (Sorry!!!)

It’s hard to believe a new semester started! I have always loved getting dressed for the first day and it’s so fun that I still have that excitement in my adult, professional life. It wasn’t particularly cold on the first day, so I wore an existing fall dress with a sweater over it, plus my favorite (and extra-flattering to short legged people) boots.

Although Tuesday was warm, I woke up to a white-out on Wednesday morning! I had a work meeting with a potential PR client so I had to brave the weather and look extra-professional. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but this is actually a knit, plum and black geometric print midi-skirt. It’s so flattering with the high-waist and I paired it with a simple black v-neck. These pieces are older, so I can only tag similar items for you.

Despite the snowstorm, my online order from Old Navy arrived and brought with it this GORGEOUS knit, suede, lilac moto jacket. I have a few trips planned over the next few months and cannot wait to style this into Spring!

On Thursday, I was able to work from home all morning, in this cozy robe. It was one of my favorite Christmas presents.

Then, on Thursday afternoon I had to attend a presentation before a work reception and dinner. Thankfully, I was able to be a little more casual. I love layering my flowered chambray shirt with this striped sweater because stripes are surprisingly easy to pattern mix with.

On Saturday I laid around all day but then got dressed for a dinner at our neighbor’s house. I wanted to look nice but also feel comfortable so I put on a lightweight summer dress, and put on a sweater over it, and then knotted it. Are you into the knotting trend? It reminds me of early 90’s tye-dye shirts, but I love it. 😉

Everything in this outfit is old, so I’ve tagged similar items, but you can easily recreate this with whatever you have in your closet.
