Happy Friday! I was really hoping for some fall temperatures this week, but it’s been humid, stuffy and just short of hot. Ugh. So I’ve definitely been pressed to create transitional style outfits this week. At any rate, these are my daily outfits for the past five days.

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.
Saturday we shot videos, so I never really got dressed for my day, other than the outfits I wore for the videos. So we’ll start with Sunday.
What I Wore Sunday Morning
Sunday morning we had church and then we went out to eat with a young friend. Yes, I ate barbecue in this outfit. Ha! I love this combination of ivory and soft camel. My silk blouse is from last year and no longer available, but I rounded up a few comparable ones. I like this silk shirt and it’s about half the price of mine (at it’s original price).
The concept is really just creating a look from soft neutrals, something I rarely do, but love on other people. So I really want to try to create similar looks more often. I love the combination of these fawn colored Hampshire ankle pants and a soft white blouse. The pants also come in a curvy fit, which is probably what I’m wearing. But they’re no longer available in this color.
I finished the look off with my Ally bossy beige pumps (use code KAYHEELS for $40 off your first pair of heels or KAYFLATS for 10% off your first pair of flats at Ally). I carried my ivory colored Coach bag (similar) and wore dainty jewelry to complete the soft look.

What I Wore Sunday Evening
Sunday evening we went to dinner with a large group of friends. We ate outside under a tent, but it was fairly warm still, too. I wore my black jeans, this black button front cashmere cardigan and my gunmetal loafers, which are no longer available unfornately.
I like how the gunmetal loafers maintain the dark hue of the otherwise black outfit, but add a little interest and light, too. I’m going to link to a few other similar loafers since mine are no longer available. I think these are turning out to be super versatile. And I imagine I’ll wear them even more when sweater weather is really here.
How I Dressed for Monday
Monday I just worked from home. I had a lot of things to put away from our Saturday video shoot still. Plus we’re heading out of town today for a family wedding this weekend, so Monday began a week of trying to work ahead a little. I wore comfortable jeans and a cotton sweater.
This cotton sweater comes in two other colors and is marked down 30% off right now. It runs true to size. And oh my! I just noticed that these Frame Le Sylvie crop jeans are now 60% off! At least for this transitional time between seasons, they are clearly my favorite jeans. I love the feel of them, the fit, the trim straight leg, the raw edge and the length.
I finished this look off with my sand colored flat mules. My mules are no longer available at Talbots, but I’ve included two very similar pair for better prices from Nordstrom in the shopping widget below.
How I Dressed for Tuesday
Tuesday I mostly worked from home, but I did get out to run a couple of errands. It was probably a little warm for a cashmere sweater, but I just couldn’t resist this lilac colored polo cashmere sweater. You may have seen me wear it in this week’s video, too. Actually this cashmere sweater is a little lighter than others I own, but it’s not thin. I think it’s a great quality and I’m really excited about using it to add more color to my outfits.
I wore the cashmere sweater with my straight leg jeans from Talbots, which I’ve cut off for a better length. Oh, and I finished off this simple outfit with my gold loafers. Aren’t they fun??? Actually, it looks like my loafers are sold out, but these still have these similar loafers.
What I Wore Wednesday
Wednesday was sort of a rainy day. I mostly worked at home, but we did go to lunch with a friend. I wore my most comfortable jeans and my favorite Sadie + Jane t-shirt. Because it was messy outside I opted for my white leather sneakers (similar).
If I had needed a jacket (or even been able to tolerate one!) I would have worn my sand colored cotton twill field jacket. One of these days! I also wore my scripture bracelet from Sadie + Jane. So fun! Use code KAYHARMS for 10% off your order at Sadie + Jane. They’re a great source for graphic tees, jewelry and other gifts with a scripture theme. The Sadie + Jane items are not in the shopping widget below, but you can shop them through the highlighted text.
What I Wore Thursday
Thursday I worked from home getting ready for our trip today. We also cleaned the house. But I did get out to have lunch with my friends. I was so hot and so tired of being hot. So I wore my blue houndstooth Parklet shirt dress. I probably looked a little over dressed; we’re a casual group! But I felt comfortable and presentable.
The quandary was the shoes. I’ve put most of my sandals away. And my pedicure is not in good shape anyhow. So I opted for my Sarah Flint pointy toe Natlies. These Italian leather shoes feel a-maze-ing! If you decide to invest in a pair of Sarah Flints, be sure to use my coupon code SARAHFLINT-BAKAYH for $50 off your first purchase.
Thanks so much for dropping in today. I hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Blessed for My Day
Perspective. Sometimes we assume that perspective is purely subjective and how we see things is a sort of “right.” We get to see the world the way we want to, right? Wrong. God’s Word tells us that there is a perspective on this world that helps us to navigate it well and there is a way of seeing things that ultimately causes us to stumble.
We are wise to try to see this world, our lives and other people through the eyes of God. When we see through His lens then we see clearly and we can walk as in the light, with clarity. How can we have this godly view of the world? By reading His Word, prayerfully and mindfully and humbly and daily. Also we ask God to help us see things from His perspective.
“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!” ~ Matthew 6:22-23
