What I Wore Wednesday

Is it still Wednesday?? Whew.  I decided to join the What I Wore Festival by The Pleated Poppy.    Come check out the fun at All Things Chic, too.

On Saturday, we took a family trip out to Crystal Cave, which is way out in the countryside.  I was all dressed and ready to go in the outfit you see below left, when I stepped out of the house and the weather, unbeknownst to me, had turned to winter.  Not really.  But it was cccooold!  So I ran back in the house, threw off my fuchsia jacket and threw on my thick brown knit cardigan.  I should have put on a belt too, which I didn't think of until I started writing this post.  So thanks to Polyvore and a little Publisher magic, I added one in.

I wore a white shirt, GAP flare jeans, brown Privos, and silver jewelry from various places including Target and Silpada.  I've been carrying this chocolate brown leather tote by Ann Taylor LOFT.  At left, I had on a fuchsia cotton jacket by Christopher & Banks.  At right, a brown wool cardigan by Jones & Co.

Sunday, I had this hankering to wear my new khaki pants.  It was a task of shopping my closet and finding a stylish combination.   I'm not sure I succeeded, but this is what I wore to church:

Khaki flares by Banana Republic, animal print tunic top by Curves (of all places!) tie-waist denim jacket by i.e. relaxed, which used to be available at Macy's.

Accessories: Sterling chain necklace in a pewter finish & sterling bead bracelet by Silpada.  Chinese character for Ram, which is my mom's zodiac sign.  Tortoise/silver earrings, silver bangles, and watch with pewter strap bought years ago and don't remember where.

I came home and thought the outfit would look better with dark pants.  Here's the same outfit but with chocolate brown flares by The Limited. I think this is a more flattering look, but I just wanted to wear my new Banana pants!

Monday, I had errands to run then attend a funeral in the evening.  I changed outfits but wore all the same jewelry:

Khaki pants in a classic cut by Gap, peacock feather design ombre long-sleeve tee by One World Live & Let Live, worn over a wine camisole.  Calvin Klein over-dyed denim jacket and Talbot's brown leather ankle boots.

Blue, gray, black & purple “watercolor” print dress with empire waist and tie detail by connected apparel, black circle cardigan by Willi Smith,both bought at TJMaxx.  Black lycra stretch boots by Nine West, similar to these by Annie, the only kind that fit my calves.

This Fall's poncho craze is all about sweaters and outerwear, but what about a blouse?  I wore this to run errands and then to a doctor's appointment.

Poncho blouse by NY&Co, long-sleeve tee in Aubergine by Ann Taylor, flare jeans by GAP, chocolate brown suede/patent "Claudie" boots by Bandolino.  I was flouncy enough; I kept jewelry to a minimum with the wood statement piece necklace.

What did YOU wear this week?
