Happy Friday! It’s time for me to share my daily outfits again. This week’s outfits include a couple of travel looks as well as some work from home outfits. And I did get out for a nail appointment and blog research (aka shopping!) one day, too. Let’s 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 to a Family Gathering in the Park
Last Friday James and I were in Abilene, Texas, visiting his family. The photos below were taken at a Mexican restaurant he and I ate at for lunch before meeting up with everyone else. My day included a stop for ice cream with his sister and brother-in-law, a drive out in the country and then a big family gathering in a park.
My legs definitely look pasty white, but I’m just done with self-tanning for the summer. Ha! But with the temperatures in the 70s it felt nice to wear my J.Jill dress and denim jacket for the day.
What I Wore for a Car Trip Saturday
Saturday morning we gathered with some of James’ family for brunch at the Biscuit Bar in Abilene before driving back to Fort Worth, where we would board a plane the next day. It was breezy and pleasantly cool. I wore my new brown
What I Wore for the Flight Home
My outfit felt comfortable but also sharp. (Don’t worry; that’s just water on my pants leg. Ha!) Next Wednesday I’m sharing 6 great fall travel outfits in our YouTube video. Stay tuned!
What I Wore to Work from Home on Monday
Monday we had to hit floor running because we were both preparing for trips today. I’ve gone to Georgia for Abigail’s baby showers and to visit family. And James is on a photography trip in Acadia Nation Park. I’m so excited for him.
Because I needed to motivate myself to get out walks throughout the day, I wore my T by Talbots performance top and high waist leggings with sneakers. I find Talbots exercise leggings to be very comfortable and to run true to size. And aren’t these fun? You could also wear this mockneck pullover or this zip sweater with them. And the identical eggplant and wild aster leggings are marked down.
What I Wore Out & About Wednesday
Tuesday we shot videos, so I never really settled into one outfit evidently. But Wednesday I was excited to get dressed up and little and head out the door. I just had a nail appointment, but I also treated myself to lunch and then did a little blog research, aka shopping.
It was pleasantly cool that day, so I wore my dark wash Mother ankle jeans (more economical option) with my favorite white ribbed t-shirt (sold out) with my new red classic Shetland blazer. I’d been itching to wear this jacket! And we took photos later that evening with this look, so you’ll see those next week along with another red jacket look. In fact, we’re going to have a little chat about the color red.
What I Wore for Work in My Home Office
And yesterday we took more photos during the first part of the day, then I was glued to the desk for the remainder. I had to edit next week’s video before heading out today. I wanted to wear something autumnal, but it also had to be super comfortable.
So I opted for my new almond buff corduroy pants with a white tank (similar white tank) and a denin button down. I can’t stress enough how comfortable these corduroy pants are. I do always size up to a 10 in Talbots’ cords, so maybe that’s why. Ha!
Thanks so much for dropping in. I am traveling today, but I’ll try to check comments throughout. So if you have questions, ask away!

Blessed for My Day
Are you running on empty? When we are lacking in some area of life – or even feel like we are – we’re more prone to latch onto other things, people and experiences to fill the void. But none of us has to feel empty. For instance, we may feel lonely, but we are never alone. God is always with us. But the enemy of our souls would have us focus on what we lack rather than what we have in Christ Jesus.
On the other hand, whenever I feel lacking, if I will look to the Lord and take my needs to Him, He will surely satisfy me richly. Or He will remind of all He has already provided and assure me it is enough. One good way to keep from “running on empty” is to spend time each day thanking the Lord for our blessings. Then we will not be tempted to try to fill those spaces with lousy substitutes.
A satisfied person despises honey,
But to a hungry person any bitter thing is sweet. ~ Proverbs 27:7
