What I Wore During My Recent Trip to Georgia

October 20, 2023

Happy Friday! Honestly, I’m all confused on what day it is. Does that happen to you when you travel? I’ve been in Georgia for a week visiting family and helping Abigail and Andrew get ready for baby girl’s pending arrival. I’m home now, but my days are all a-jumble! Anyhow, below I’m sharing what I wore during my recent trip to Georgia.

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 Travel to Georgia

Be prepared for a lot of repeats. Other than all the shower gifts I brought, I packed fairly light for my week away. After Wednesday’s YouTube video on What to Wear While You Get There, you’d think I would have worn some of my travel clothes. But after wearing them so much on my recent trip to Dallas and west Texas, I opted instead for fall-appropriate cords.

I had been anxiously awaiting the day when I could wear corduroy pants for fall, so I jumped at this opportunity. I created a monochromatic look with my cotton fisherman sweater (a great economical option) in oatmeal.

What I Wore to Abigail’s Baby Shower

Saturday some sweet friends of mine and Abigail’s hosted the most lovely baby shower for her. It was a beautiful morning, and I had planned to wear my new J.Jill dress and boots. I was so glad the weather cooperated. The dress felt perfect for the occasion.

floral printed dress // boots (alternative option) // necklace // earrings

I don’t frequently wear above-the-knee dresses and boots, so this was a bit of a stretch for me. But I’m so glad I went for it. Later I’ll add some brown tights, but on this day it felt more appropriate to go without; it was a little warm for tights. I’m wearing a small in this dress, by the way.

How I Dressed for Church on Sunday

Sunday morning I attended Abigail and Andrew’s church with them. They are members of (and greatly involved in) a young and vibrant church in Atlanta. Most everyone in their growing church is in their 20-30s, so the “dress code” is very casual. So it felt very smart to wear my wide-leg Harlow pants from Madewell with a black tee (similar) and denim jacket.

I shared more ways to wear these fun, trending wide-leg casual pants in Monday’s blog post and yesterday’s. They do run just a little large; I’m wearing the smaller of my usual sizes, an 8. I completed the look with black accessories.

What I Wore for a Day of Errands and Visiting with Abby

Monday Abigail took off from work and we just spent the day together. We went to a few stores and got some groceries for a yummy dinner. Oh, we went to Lake Pajamas! I had been wanting to try on their famously soft PJs. Indeed, they are swoon-worthy. I didn’t get anything for me in the end, but I did purchase these pajamas for Abigail’s Christmas present. She’ll be able to wear them after delivery, too, for nursing. And the pajamas I did try on (and loved!) I decided I would want to size up to a large in, just for a super comfy fit. (They are also known to shrink just a tad.)

Anyhoo! That day I was back in my cotton fisherman sweater (a great economical option), but this time I wore my dark grey or soft black jeans. I purchased these in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so they are in very low availability at this point.

What I Wore for a Visit with a Friend

Tuesday I got out to visit a friend for the afternoon. She keeps her sweet grandson, so I met up with her at her home. We had a lovely lunch and then took the baby (he’s One today!) for a stroll around the neighborhood on this beautiful autumn day.

So I wore my other corduroy pants with a white vintage tee and a denim button-up shirt over it. Sneakers were in order since I knew we might get out for a walk, plus they just felt right with this casual but pulled together look.

What I Wore for Breakfast Out with My Parents

Thursday morning my parents picked me up from Abigail’s home and we went out to breakfast. Then they carried me to their home where I finished out my Georgia stay. This outfit is just a complete repeat of my initial travel look.

These corduroy pants are no longer available in this color, but I can tell you that they are extremely comfortable. Mine are from last year, but this year they have them in some nice dark options. I’m wearing a size small for a very nice fit. Also you can use code BLISS25 for $25 off your purchase at Eileen Fisher just through 10/22/23.

What I Wore to Travel Home

Again I opted for corduroy pants for my travel day. This time I wore my straight leg stretch cords from Talbots.

similar black top // denim jacket // corduroy pants // belt // loafers (more economical option)  // necklace // earrings // suitcase

I wore the corduroy pants with my black ribbed tee (similar), black belt and black loafers. And I topped the outfit with my denim jacket. I love traveling with my denim jacket because it has big interior pockets in which I often put my reading glasses, phone or what-have-you.

Well, that’s a wrap. Thanks so much for dropping in. I hope you have a great weekend!

Blessed for My Day

Have you found yourself at the end of your reserves? Maybe you’re in a bit of a difficult situation and your faith is running low, your stamina is weakening and you’re on the edge of giving up hope. Let me encourage you today to go ahead and put one more foot in front of the other. Keep going, Sister. You will endure to the end if you just hold on a little longer.

Meanwhile know that God is at work. I know it may seem like He is silent, uninterested even. But nothing could be further from the truth. The Lord is with you and He is indeed working all things together for your ultimate good. Take a moment to count your blessings, recall His faithfulness in the past, read a scripture of reassurance and orally affirm your trust in Him. I think you will soon feel restored and ready to move on.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. ~ Psalm 51:12

xoxo, Kay

  1. I always enjoy seeing what you really wear! Anyway, I loved all of the outfits, but especially I loved the J Jill dress and boot combo, I like the shorter length – it looked great on you. Have a great weekend.

  2. Love all your casual looks — and how authentic you are in these clothes. I would wear every single that you are wearing.
    I’ve never purchased Eileen Fisher before but have read that one should really size down. Do you recommend doing this for the jeans you are wearing?

  3. What a wonderful selection of outfits for your trip. I know you have to be soo excited for that new grand baby to get here! I have really enjoyed all your Wednesday Videos. Such great content and now it’s my favorite for the week! ❤️❤️❤️

  5. So funny! I just bought a pair of ivory boot cut cords from Levis and plan on wearing them with my ivory cotton fisherman knit sweater from Quince!

  6. Dear Kay,

    I also just returned from a trip (a month long) and when I read your “Blessed for my Day” God spoke to me. My time on two flight was 12 hours, plus the airport security, etc. and I feel like I’m at the end of my reserves today. I’m putting one foot in front of the other and trusting God for renewed strength. Thank you for the encourgement each day as I read your blog. Blessings to you.


  7. I enjoyed seeing all of your outfits and I know you had a great visit. I really appreciate your BFMD. I mentioned last week that my family has been in a very difficult situation for 4 years with things going from bad to worse and prayers seemingly not answered. I have to keep reminding myself that God is good, he is working in this situation and we just have to keep waiting on him. Thank you for your encouragement.

  8. Love these looks. I think I could manage some similar looks from my own closet (always fun). And Lake Pajamas – love! I have signed up for emails/sale notices. Maybe you will keep us informed, too? I really don’t need more pjs… but those look so nice!

  9. Just a hello Kay!
    I live in Indiana I’m from Dayton, Ohio.
    Your style of dressing is very much like mine.
    I look forward to what you have to say, like your sense of humor. May GOD continue to Bless you.

    1. Hi Sharon. Thanks for introducing yourself. I’m so glad you’re enjoying my content. Have a blessed day! 😊
