Daily Mom Style 02.19.14

There isn’t much variety in my wardrobe this week, I’m warning ya. I started out the week trying this whole layering/drapey-sweater/leggings look again. I stopped into Target and picked up a few of their Long and Lean Tanks, although they’re still not as long as I was hoping. I layered one of my white tanks over the gray Long & Lean and then I put on my favorite gray drapey sweater (it’s the only one I have that’s long enough to wear with leggings). I figured the outfit needed color so I went for this coral/gray/navy scarf.

These are my favorite leggings, just $36 at Nordstrom (free shipping, free returns). Seriously, if you don’t have them yet, BUY THEM NOW. I’m a little so-so on the overall look, but boy was I ever warm and comfy.

One wardrobe item I’ve never owned is a white blouse. They always look so sharp on other women, but at the same time, I always feel like they look incredibly uncomfortable. I finally decided it was time to invest so I picked up this one at the CAbi Outlet a few weeks ago, and I was right. So. Very. Uncomfortable. And not very flattering either, I daresay. What is the secret? Can someone please tell me?

I took that outfit right back off and put on my familiar holey sweatshirt instead. Pardon the atrocious lighting. My daughter took this picture, and I was but a speck. I had to crop in about 50% to even get this close.

I wore this on Saturday to see the Lego movie with the family. Don’t waste your money. I don’t know what all the hype is about. It was another snowy day so I went for comfort. I wore my same Hue leggings, this time with my teal tunic sweater. I wore the Target Long & Lean tank under it because it’s a bit short in the front. The gold necklace was a gift from a blogging event many moons ago, and I wore my orange Tory Burch bracelet for color. I also dug out this old coral handbag, which shows just how OCD I really am. I mean, to go to the movies? But I love the contrast of the coral against the teal. It’s the little things.

The sweater is longer in the back and covers the tush. I promise. I had to include this photo, even though it’s blurry. My daughter tried to photobomb me. Kids!! I get no respect.

I wore this to church on Sunday. These are NOT leggings, they are my double zipper biker skinny pants from Goodnight Macaroon. I wore them because they are fleece lined, so warm and cozy, and also very slimming. I put on my oatmeal tunic sweater and black wedge boots. The necklace is a Stella & Dot purchase off of eBay, and the earrings are from Studio Jewel.

Later on that day I had my husband take my picture outside in better light, although I wish I’d taken the time to powder my nose! I love my bright pink Kate Spade tote (a clearance purchase last year), and I wore my new Stella & Dot Sardinia Bracelet for another pop of color.

Finally, I wore this around the house and to go to PT today. This top is old, it’s from the Oakley outlet. I wore it with my favorite Athleta yoga pants and a lavender tank. My Puma sneakers are comfortable and supportive, and the necklace was a gift from The Vintage Pearl for speaking at the Blissdom Conference several years ago.
