what I wore

We have had the most amazing weather in Seattle this week. My absolutely favorite time of the year is when the leaves are turning, the sky is clear blue and I can wear a sweater. It’s been lovely.

So here I am this week – dressed every day in jeans and some shade of gray.

1. sweater: Marshalls, t-shirt: Marshalls, scarf: Target, Jeans: Seven Dojo, shoes: Marshalls

{Okay, weird. I think I only own three things from Marshalls and I have them all on in this photo. Not that I don’t like Marshalls – you can get some amazing deals. I just am not a very good Marshalls/TJ Maxx/Ross/Nordstrom Rack shopper so I don’t go in much}.

2. t-shirt: Target, cardigan: Martin + Osa, jeans: Banana Republic boot cut, shoes: Target

3. sweater: Nordstrom, jeans: Joes Jeans, shoes: Payless

4. Ahhh, what a sweet baby girl. Okay, focus.

shirt: Banana Republic, jeans: Banana Republic wide leg, shoes: Nordstrom

5. dress: Target {purchased mine from my very fashionable friend who was selling it in her garage sale – does that mean it is no longer fashionable? Oh well.}, cardigan: Martin + Osa, belt: 8th grade {note: I’m not actually certain about the 8th grade thing. It could have been early high school. Yes, it still fits which I’m grateful for, but the fact that I own a belt from 1993 with a huge silver buckle, am not a cowgirl and wear it anyway tells you just how fashion-forward I am. Or how cheap – have you seen the prices of belts lately?!!}. Jeans: Seven Flare, boots: Nordstrom

6. t-shirt: Target, cardigan: Martin + Osa, jeans: Banana Republic wide leg, shoes: Nine West, scarf: Nordstrom


And just a reminder that the OCTOBER GIVEAWAY will be announced on Monday. If you haven’t signed up, make sure you do so now!

    Seriously, girl, your clothes are too cute! I love your jeans, and definitely number 5 is my favorite!

  4. Julie October 21, 2010 at 5:47 am #

    Well I think these outfits look very fashionable! And I’m with you on the belt thing…way too expensive for a brand new one. I think I still have a few from hs!

    Thank you for this post!!! I am in a total wardrobe rut and this inspired me to clean out my closet and to start collecting clothes I actually want to wear (and of course blog about it all!). You have great style and I look forward to more of these posts!!! k

    So Cute!!! Love the dress with the jeans…really miss Martin & Osa I did score during the liquidation sales. Awesome that after 4 kids you can still wear that belt! You go!!!

  14. Jessica October 15, 2010 at 1:30 pm #

    yay for wiw! I always get ideas for different ways to put my clothes together. Thanks!!

    Emily, you are so cute. I love your ensembles. I don’t know what you are talking about when you say you don’t accessorize because you totally do. I have a shirt very similar to the one that you wore in pic #4; you’ve inspired me to iron it, and start wearing it again. I’m not familiar with Martin + Osa– is that a national chain?

    • emily October 15, 2010 at 12:55 pm #

      Martin + Osa was a fabulous chain store {sort of cross between banana & j.crew} that just closed {bankrupt?}. Bummer.

    Yay! I love these posts! I love the pic with Audrey looking in the mirror! Reminds me of my little guy, he LOVES the mirror!! Have a great weekend!

    These are just the funnest posts ever. There’s something about the beautiful weather and the colors in the stores this year that have just made me so excited to get dressed (and shop) – but man! it’s still work to pull an outfit all together! You do a great job. Thanks for the inspiration – if you have a J.Crew Outlet by it’s so worth checking out – such lovely grays, pinks, and greens – I want to live there.

    I love your blog and have been inspired by your great tutorials. Love the outfits.

  26. hallie October 15, 2010 at 8:28 am #

    I have the same “garage sale” dress from Target- only mine is jade and it comes down to my knees! :) Love how you are wearing it with jeans. :)

  27. Nicole October 15, 2010 at 8:28 am #

    Love the outfits! When I see outfit posts such as yours, it really inspires me to try new things since I see them on others and they work. And, it’s a plus that your style is very similar to mine!

    Also, your Martin & Osa cardigans are making me very sad that they closed up shop. I have several of their pieces and love them all. Do you happen to know of any other brand that is similar to M&O in quality and style?

  28. Jennifer October 15, 2010 at 8:28 am #

    You look adorable! I love these posts. They’re good motivation to get my act together and be a little bit more creative in how I put outfits together :) Oh, and you can bet I’ll be lurking around my Target this weekend looking for that cute scarf.
