Happy Friday! I’m in eastern Ohio this morning, following a speaking engagement last night. I spoke at the Genesis Healthcare Services Girls’ Night Out in Zanesville, Ohio, and it was a lot of fun. Today we’re moving on to another location James has picked out for us to do a little exploring and take some photos. We try to get out and explore our state at least once a month, so this work trip worked nicely for us to do that. Below I’m sharing how I really dressed for my day this week.

How This Works
These are my real life outfits from my own closet. Many of these things are available, but some may not be. When I can locate one quickly I’ll share substitutes and/or more economical options. But if I don’t provide one and you’d like for me to, just ask.
All available items are linked in the captions of the photos. Even if they don’t look like links (sometimes they don’t highlight for some reason), they generally are. So just click through if you’re interested.
What I Wore on Friday
Friday I mostly worked from home, but did go out for a few errands, too. I opted for jeans that day, something I haven’t worn in a while surprisingly. I paired my Mother jeans (size 31) with my vintage white tee and cashmere vest, both from J.Crew.
I finished the look with my On Cloud sneakers. I’ve had some foot issues recently, so I’m needing to wear good shoes with arch support and solid foundations. These feel so good on my feet!
What I Wore on Sunday
I didn’t wear anything of note on Saturday. I was icing my foot off and on and even took a nap. So I really didn’t get dressed for my day, to be honest. But Sunday I pulled this outfit together with some favorite jeans and my white Cloth & Stone button-up shirt. This shirt is different from others in that it’s 100% Tencel and super-duper soft. That fabric also gives it a lovely, close to the body drape.
You know I’m really crushing on cognac accessories, so I felt like this was a great opportunity to wear my cognac sandals, belt and new shoulder bag. I love the cognac with dark denim, but I think it works really nicely with this low intensity outfit, too.
What I Wore on Monday
Monday I shared my blog post with high and low options for this classic fall outfit. Right off the bat I got requests for photos. Ha! I do prefer to always show photos with my blog posts, but sometimes I just don’t have them available for what I want to share. Anyhow, I threw this outfit on that day and took some mirror selfies.
You can read more about this outfit in Monday’s blog post where I really walked through the way I’ve put things together and I’ve provided lower priced options for most everything.
But…I already had the outfit below on that morning, so I did return to it after snapping the above photos.
I’ve been enjoying this cargo pant in green so much, I purchased them in this light khaki, too. They are so comfortable and easy to pair with things in my closet. Oh, and right now they (along with a lot of other things) are 30% off for everyone, but 40% off if you’re a J.Crew Passport member (sign up!).
What I Wore on Tuesday
Tuesday I shared this controversial outfit on the blog. Ha! In the blog post I mentioned that I never let myself share outfit inspiration that I wouldn’t actually wear so I would in fact be wearing this combination that day. Good to my word, I wore it to my nail appointment and the mall.
I did indeed receive compliments. But that was neither here nor there for me. I just truly enjoyed wearing this modern outfit. The croc-embossed cutout loafers (that’s what J.Crew calls them; I’d call them Mary Janes) were super comfortable, especially for my foot condition. And the skirt felt good and fresh and feminine. I loved wearing this outfit!
What I Wore on Wednesday
Sorry for the squinty eyes in these photos. But Wednesday, as I prepare for my speaking engagement, my closet in my office fell down. Yes, you read that correctly. The entire closet fell down and exploded out onto my office floor. Ugh. It wasn’t even really loaded down with heavy things. I think it was just an accident waiting to happen. Anyhow, my office already had clothing strewn all over as I was pulling outfits for my presentation. So I had James snap this photo outside.
Honestly, I was in and out of outfits most of the day. But I did wear these green cargo pants and short sleeve button up for a good portion of the day. I love combining this color of green with blue. And I had wanted to wear my new cognac colored mules, too. I bought them in black in the NSale, and just couldn’t resist the cognac ones when they were on sale again over the Labor Day weekend. They run true to size.
What I Wore on Thursday
Somehow I missed taking a photo of what I wore for travel yesterday. But I wore these joggers in flint with a white tee and this zip-up hoodie in pale grey heather. Super comfy! Anyhow, I also neglected to get good photos of my outfit last night. Well, James took photos with his camera, but I can’t get one of those yet, so I grabbed a few still shots from an Instagram video I uploaded last night.
It was a girls’ night out event, so this fun, feminine skirt and glittery pumps paired with the simple white tank and denim jacket seemed fitting. Do you recognize the 2×2 style formula I shared in this recent blog post?
Thanks so much for stopping in. Have a great day!

Blessed for My Day
Have you ever had a good thing get out of control in your life? I have. Sometimes a good thing comes along – whether it be a new job, a fun friendship, an interesting hobby, an unexpected blessing – and we grab hold with all we’ve got. Before we know it we’re in over our head and things are out of control. In fact, the good thing is actually controlling us!
Proverbs 25:16 reminds us to exercise a little self-control when we come across something good. A little bit goes a long way in most things. Whether that be the yummy cake sitting on the counter under the cake dome or the new neighbor you just love spending time with. Let’s remember to draw closer to the giver of all good and perfect gifts, but to create a little appropriate space between ourselves and those lovely blessings.
If you find honey, eat just enough—
too much of it, and you will vomit. ~ Proverbs 25:16
