It’s the end of September and I’m still trying to wear all of the colors and all of the clothing items. It looks like I missed out on wearing shorts for the week, but I’ll make up for it next week.
There are a couple of days missing from this lineup because one of them I actually stayed in my workout wear. That rarely happens but I gave myself a break for the day. And the other day is because you’ll see the look in a dedicated blog post.
I think you would enjoy it if you signed up for the emails below. Besides the free eBook, my email family gets personal tidbits of what’s going on in my life along with other happenings, sales, information, giveaways, extra photos, and interesting articles.
I’m SUPER impressed with this kimono I ordered from the Just Be Youtiful website. (Use code Jtouch15 for a discount). The quality is wonderful as it’s a nice material and not polyester.
Both items I’ve ordered from her site have exceeded my expectations, especially for the price.
Now I will say that I thought I was getting the sky blue colorway, but it seems much darker than the website. But I do love it, and you’ll be seeing it a lot.
The faux leather skirt was a recent find from Goodwill and it has a purple tinge to it in certain lights (which I just love).
Ankle boots are my way to make it seem fallish, and these were found on a recent trip to DSW to use up my $5 rewards.
So I loved the idea of this yellow blouse as a topper, but I wanted to “do” something with it. After playing with it for a couple of minutes, I ended up creating a “wrap top” with it. You can see the video of how I did it.
The dress is my first ever t-shirt dress which my mom hand-made, and the original models all have a version of it as seen in this older article.
My friend, Joanne, made these earrings, and she has some great jewelry (some of it very reasonably priced) on her Etsy site.
Can you see my supervisor behind me, haha? And here is proof that I am casual at times!
These joggers were from our recent Goodwill foray and I don’t think they’d ever been worn. They could be a tad big on me, but I’ll wait to determine that after I wash them a couple of times.
Leaving the top untucked seemed boring so I scrunched up the material and added a clear elastic (on Amazon). Then I added my extras with a pearl necklace (thrifted) among other jewelry.
The sandals add a bit of extra too. These are still available on Amazon and come in a bunch of different colorways. If I’m walking a lot, I do add my Sole Insoles for arch support.
Lesley gave me a couple of dresses she was going to purge and this is one of them.
With these kinds of straps, I used my breast tape (found here) and I’m experimenting to see how much I really need. Granted the dress is a tad big, but for the hot days, that’s a good thing.
Since we are going grocery shopping, I added a kimono (thanks mom for making it years ago).
For the sandals, I wanted a totally different color and since there are so many colors in the dress, I could have chosen almost anything!
The yellow earrings (also seen in the top photo) are from a small company that showcases artisans with ethical options called Mariposa Skies. They are yellow (my favorite color), and yarn, so how could I not buy them? LOL.
I just worked with this company Dona Jo on Instagram this week to showcase some of their active wear. What I really liked is how there are a couple of different lengths of skirts PLUS this one with capris attached if you would rather be more covered.
Want to see the video of all three different lengths? Check it out here.
You’ve seen me wearing a tennis skirt with a blazer recently because I believe even our activewear can be worn in so many ways. Maybe you think you would need a tight-fitting top with a flowy skirt like this? I might disagree. I love the peplum detail as it mirrors the same silhouette.
The beautiful necklace and earrings go so perfectly with it and are from my friend’s shop called Sally Hoffman Designs. Please give her a gander.
My goal with my daily looks post is to find things that help inspire you with my daily outfits and to bring a smile and kindness to your life. I truly think that clothing is our way to express our personality visually.
I hope I say thank you enough because your support allows me to continue this journey which I just LOVE!!!
Supporting a blog can be easy and free. Just visiting my pages, clicking my links (especially for small businesses and sponsored posts), and sharing the things you like on your social media make a huge difference. Spreading the word is how I can reach more wonderful people like you!
