What a hot, steamy week it’s been in Philly! How about you??? Here are the highlights from what I wore this week.
This I wore out to dinner with my hubby for my birthday. It’s a nice restaurant but not particularly formal so I went for shorts and heels. I like the juxtaposition of shorts and heels for a fun dressy/casual vibe.
Before you ask, I picked up the coral shorts and statement necklace at the J.Crew Factory Outlet earlier this summer. As far as I know, they’re still carrying them. The white top is CAbi – also from their outlet store this summer. The sandals are old, old, old — but definitely a fave. So comfy. And the green bag was a “to-me, from-me” gift (haha!) back in the spring. It’s a Rebecca Minkoff that I snagged on clearance at Zappos. (And I really need to zip up that outside pocket! Classy!)
This outfit was from a casual day at home.
All my shorts were dirty so I pulled on this cargo skirt. It is so very, very old — a Target purchase several years ago. The Timeless Tank is from Banana Republic, also a few years old, but they still carry it in other colors and patterns. I have about 25 of them. Seriously. Love the fit and they wash and wear great. The flips are from Target a few years back, and the necklace is one of my faves from the beautiful and talented Lisa Lehman at Studio Jewel. The bracelet is from Madewell. I liked how the copper color picked up on the copper in the necklace. (Is that copper? If not, what is it?)
I wore this next outfit for the Fourth of July after running a hot, steamy 10K that morning. We hosted my in-laws for a cookout — it was the perfect, laid back summer afternoon!
(None of these pieces are available anymore. They are all old favorites.)
I wore this casual dress to church on Sunday and dressed it up with the gold necklace.
I’ve had that necklace for ages; it was from a Getting Gorgeous Event at BlogHer a few years ago, and I rarely have the right outfit for it but it seems to be perfect for this dress. The dress is from the Banana Republic Factory Store. It comes in about 10 different colors. I had a hard time choosing one but I went with this bright orange because for some reason, orange makes me happy!
The Tory Burch Miller Sandals were my birthday gift from my mom last week. I’ve seen these around and thought they were super cute but I couldn’t bring myself to drop the cash on them, so when my mom asked me for birthday ideas, I shot the link over to her! Gotta luv moms!!
I wore this outfit several times this week.
The shorts are from J.Crew Factory, and the GAP Essential short-sleeve T is an awesome summer staple. The Chaco Flip Ecotread flips are purely for the comfort value! I’d be wearing my new Tory sandals with this if they were easier on my feet! Oh, and the bracelet is one of my daughter’s Rainbow Loom masterpieces.
