Happy Friday! I’m not always just real excited when weekends roll around. When I have extra posts to write or videos to shoot, Saturdays just seem like an extension of the work week. But this weekend I’m stepping away from work as much as possible to do some other things. So I’m very happy that it’s Friday. I’m also happy to be sharing with you how I really dressed for my day this past week.

However…I must warn you. Prepare to see some of the same outfits you saw just last week. Hahaha! It’s about this time in a season when I start living out of a small capsule wardrobe without even intending to. Like you, I gravitate to the pieces that I enjoy the most. So I start wearing things on constant repeat. I did try to style a few of those favorites a little differently, however, this week.
Just for reference, I’m 5’8″ and weigh about 155. I generally wear a size 8 or medium in dresses, tops, jackets and pants (or 29 or 30 in jeans), so that’s what I’m wearing in these looks unless I tell you otherwise. That way you can assume everything I show you is true to size unless I alert you to sizing up or down. I wear a size 9.5 shoe and, again, I’ll just let you know if I sized up or down in a shoe, otherwise it’s true to size.
What I Wore Saturday
Yes, I skipped over last Friday. For some reason I didn’t get a photo of that outfit. I have video footage of it, however, so I know I wore the same jeans I wore Saturday with this simple white split neck embroidered tee. I love that slub cotton fabric! Anyhow, on Saturday I wore the same modern ankle jeans with ribbon tape with this sweet “sunshine” t-shirt.
I hadn’t worn my trainer sneakers in a while, so I broke those out. They’re fun to wear occasionally and I think they look pretty cute with the ankle jeans. By the way, this “sunshine” t-shirt is still stocked in all sizes as I write this, and it’s under $20.
How I Dressed for Church on Sunday
I attended our more traditional church worship service on Sunday, so I dressed up a bit. I had seen another influencer wear this chalk colored A-line skirt and coordinating ribbed cotton blend tank and thought it was stunning. I love separates like these that are both comfortable and pretty. I’m wearing a small in both pieces.
I honestly think this ivory color would probably look more beautiful on a woman with dark skin, but I enjoy wearing it, so there ya go! I decided to keep my accessories in the same soft neutral with my ivory colored braided slide sandals and these lovely marbled earrings from Rachelyn. I carried my new Coach handbag, which is my absolute favorite purchase from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The sale opens to non-cardholders on July 28th!
I don’t have a shopping widget for this look, but you can shop the look through the links above.
What I Wore Monday
Monday I just worked from home before going to the church for a picnic with a small group of our church members. For the work day I wore my black denim shorts and a tee I’ve had for a couple of years. The jean shorts are almost sold out, but the price is marked down a good bit. I guess I was still in a monochromatic mood.
That evening I switched into my L.L.Bean summer dress for the picnic. It was so pleasant outside. I was glad I had changed into a pretty dress. Several of the other ladies were wearing similar casual dresses. I mean, the shorts would have been perfectly fine, too. Friends were wearing theirs.
I had worn this Summer Knit Dress several other times, always with nude colored sandals. So this time I decided to switch things up a little and wear my yellow citrine platform flip flops. They’re soooo comfortable. And I thought the soft yellow was a nice splash of color without being overpowering. There’s just the tiniest bit of yellow in the dress. My dress is still available by the way, but in limited sizes. And I think this similar blue Ikat print is just as lovely.
How I Dressed Tuesday
Tuesday I just worked all day on Wednesday’s video, but I felt like wearing a dress again. Specifically, I felt like wearing my black cotton dress from Everlane again. This simple shirtdress is oh so comfortable, and I really think the shirred waistline is quite flattering for an oversized silhouette. The shirtdress has been restocked, by the way.
An Instagram follower mentioned buying the dress and wearing it with more color, so I decided to accessorize it a little differently this time. I added an old turquoise necklace and bracelet. And instead of wearing my nude colored sandals that I’ve been wearing almost nonstop, I finished my outfit with my silver braided flip flops. These CeCe braided sandals seem to have been restocked, too, by the way. I think I’ve had these for several years now. Honestly, I’d still prefer the dress with neutrals, but I do think it works well with colorful jewelry and more interesting footwear, too.
My jewelry is not available, but wouldn’t this bracelet and this statement necklace look great with it??? Yes! Of course, then I would probably wear the gold CeCe braided sandals, which have also been restocked.
How I Dressed for Wednesday
Wednesday I worked on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchases Review post and then baked peach pound cakes and froze some peaches, too. I’ll be sharing the recipe for my peach pound cake in my subscriber email on Saturday. It is so yummy – moist and bursting with fresh flavor. Anyhoo! (I get a little carried away when we start talking peaches!) I wanted to be comfortable so I wore my lightweight stretch crops and tie front stripe tee. They’re both in summer sage green, but the top is sold out in that color. And it’s about sold out in the lighter lagoon blue, too. It is such a fun shirt to wear. It has buttons up the back.
What I Wore Thursday
Thursday I spent the morning doing laundry and tidying up the house. Then I baked more peach pound cakes. We’re giving the small loaf-size cakes to neighbors who were all so kind to us when we moved in a couple of months ago. But I also spent a good bit of time in my office, so I decided to dress up a bit more than the day before. I wore my new Frame straight leg crops that I bought in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I think I’m ending up with three pairs of jeans from the sale, and whichever pair I have on at the moment seem to be my favorite. These are mighty fine, though. The good news is these seem to still be well stocked. They’re premium denim with a premium price tag, but the NSale definitely makes them a little more affordable.
I topped my raw edge cropped jeans with my white Henley tee and a no-iron linen shirt. I love this duo. By the way, my linen shirt is marked waaay down from the original price. It’s been a great closet essential for the summer. Normally I probably wouldn’t wear the tee untucked with these cropped jeans, but I think the unbuttoned linen shirt helps keep the proportions right here. What do you think?
By the way, speaking of these raw edge cropped jeans, did you see this week’s video? It’s a nice short one!
Thanks so much for stopping in today. Let me know if you have any questions about anything I’ve shared. I love to hear from you.

Blessed for My Day
Joy is an honest-to-God emotion best experienced in the fellowship of others. Joy is contagious, and when you share your joy it encourages those who are struggling, waiting or praying diligently. This is a feeling that calls for a response. It shouldn’t be hidden or tamped down or contained.
So today I’d love for you to share with me your joy. How has God caused you to rejoice this week? What prayer has He answered, lesson has He taught, grace has He given or gift has He shared. I’d love to know. Share your joy with me!
And they observed the Feast of Unleavened Bread seven days with joy, for the Lord had caused them to rejoice, and had turned the heart of the king of Assyria toward them to encourage them in the work of the house of God, the God of Israel. ~ Ezra 6:22
