Today’s outfit is a copy cat of one of my favorite bloggers, Hello Gorgeous! I pinned one of her outfits eons ago and today seemed like a great day to pull old pieces out of my closet and piece them together like hers. And that’s what I love most about blogging – inspiration! Of course my outfit isn’t the exact replica, but that’s the whole point – using her outfit to inspire me to use clothes out of my own closet. What did we possibly do in life before Pinterest?
I’ve been a very lazy blogger this weekend. I’m currently finishing up my 7th month (out of 9) of clinical rotations for school and I’m so ready to be done. I’ve also been sick + it’s still cold + still snowing = I’m lazy 🙂 Soo, to make up for it, today I was able to get a couple blog photos done for a “what I wish I was wearing” post. I usually do a wish list on Sunday, but nothing really came up super exciting this week and thought 2 blog photos would be better. Soo, about these outfits…
I think I love stripes just as much as I love all things plaid (maybe more). I have several other tops I’ve picked up over the last few months in spring colors that I’m dying to share with you as soon as the weather gets better. These 2 tops are super comfy and will be great for spring/summer! The red striped top is longer in the back and would also look super cute with black leggings.
I’m slightly too obsessed with plaid. I see a plaid shirt (or plaid anything for that matter) and deem it must be mine! This plaid shirt was no different. Banana Republic has actually had it on their site for awhile now, but I patiently waited for the sale + extra 40% off (it pays to be patient with some of these companies!), so it ended up being very affordable. I’m so happy I purchased it though; they call it their “soft wash” shirt and it truly is very soft and comfy to wear.
This sweater (worn previously here) is oh so cozy! Today is also a “denim on denim” Instagram challenge I’m completing and although I’m not a huge fan of wearing a denim shirt with blue jeans — chambray + denim leggings = perfect! It’s also freezing here (literally… Antarctica, I swear) and the extra layers are much needed.
Olive (or moss) is one of those colors that I tend to pair with tried and true colors combos. Today is no different – olive + navy + gray. Easy peasy. Especially when it’s 6 am and you are staring at your closet with “nothing to wear.” (Why does that happen so often?)
Good news is it’s Wednesday! Meaning half the week is almost over and the weekend is upon us (I work Saturday, so I’m anxious for Sunday. 🙂 )
My Sunday wish list from a few days ago featured a “cocoon” cardigan from Target. Welllll, I definetely went and picked one up and I gotta say – I love it! I don’t really own too many longer boyfriend-type cardigans, nor ones that are open front, so I was really excited to incorporate this one into my closet.
Today’s outfit was about incorporating a color palette of neutrals together. It’s felt refreshing to get away from bold and dark colors. I didn’t really add any jewelry, other than the small set of bangle bracelets I have on, due to the lace on my shirt — I’m not much one for the extremes. 🙂
I apologize (not really) in advance because you might be seeing this handbag like, everyday, for awhile! My husband surprised me with this for Valentine’s Day. It’s my first Kate Spade handbag (whaaattt?! I know!) and I’m going to cherish it for a looong time! I still love my Target bags though – rest assured! This might have started a bad habit though on his part (again, not sorry :D).
Almost everything on my wish list today is on sale for President’s Day! Shop online or in store for savings. Enjoy! 🙂
Target just released their spring line this past week with some really cute items! I already picked up a few things that I will hopefully be able to show on the blog soon (tomorrow is a high of 2 – not 20 – 2! ugh!)
As I stated in my last post – loving this “tomato red” color this season! This blouse from Loft comes in 5 different colors including the color I have on today. It’s a lightweight material, but paired with this scarf I was very comfortable all day.
