Back in the day I used to play along with a blog thing called what I wore. Today seems like a fun day for the next installment!
While I am far from a legit fashion blogger, I do think its fun to see what other people are wearing to help put together outfits or try new styles. I figure if I can inspire you to shop your closet or find a few new items and in the end you feel good in your clothes, then I’ll gladly pose awkwardly in front of a mirror and take pictures of my mom-appropriate outfits :).
So today I’m sharing what I’ve been wearing the past few weeks.
A few notes before we begin:
- You’ll notice a theme in every outfit I wear – casual, simple, neutral, comfortable. I love basics that can be mixed and matched and worn in any season.
- I realize that our summer weather in the Pacific Northwest allows for jeans and even requires light sweaters at times, but there have also been lots of hot days, too. I’m happy to live in a place with such pretty summers.
- Not all of the items I’m wearing are shop-able. Some are old, some from random stores. When the item is available online, the link will be included. If I can find something similar, I’ll link that.
- I am 5’7 and 120ish pounds. It’s probably taboo to actually share those facts but it helps to know sizing when thinking about what certain items would look like on different body types.
Let’s get to it!
OUTFITS ONE + TWO
OUTFIT ONE | You may remember earlier this summer that I was wanting a pair of wide leg jeans. Well, I ordered two pair and I actually like them both. Ryan, on the other hand, does not. But I can’t help myself and wear them anyway. They are not maybe the most flattering, yet it feels like a fun change from my go-to skinny jeans.
OUTFIT TWO | I had to include at least one version of a workout outfit because I love going to barre and pilates classes a few mornings each week and often just keep the same clothes on for the rest of the day if I don’t feel like changing. Which is more often than not :)
OUTFITS THREE + FOUR
Shorts. They are truthfully not my favorite. But it’s been in the high 80’s and sometimes shorts are the right choice. I’m not excited about super short shorts, so I tend to go for slightly longer inseams (these are both 5″). Now that I look at them, I feel like maybe I should just brave it and go for something shorter. Or wait a few weeks and not think about shorts until next summer :)
OUTFIT THREE | I ordered myself a bandana and have been trying to wear it and get over the fact that it feels a little funny to try new trends (even though the head scarf thing is not really that new of a trend). I actually do think it’s pretty cute.
OUTFIT FOUR | this is a typical Emily outfit – white button up + jeans, but I paired it with denim shorts instead.
OUTFITS FIVE + SIX
OUTFIT FIVE | I wore this to church and then to a friend’s 40th birthday party. That was a fun day.
OUTFIT SIX | I love this shirt. I love the olive green color. I love the saying (because I also love the shade).
OUTFITS SEVEN + EIGHT
OUTFIT SEVEN | This is my first jumpsuit and I’m a big fan (except for when you have to use the bathroom – that’s not the easiest!). I found this one at Marshall’s and especially love the tie neck. I have a tank with similar silhouette and have worn it a bunch this summer.
OUTFIT EIGHT | These are the second pair of wide leg jeans I bought (from Loft, no longer available). I like them.
So that’s what I’ve been wearing. Do you have a favorite? Do you see a theme in the clothes you’ve been wearing? Please share!
