The rest of what I wore this week

The rest of my outfits this week – let’s go backwards in time!

Today

Cardigan: Jalie pleated cardigan

Tunic: Maggy London

Jeggings: Charlotte Russe

Boots: Impo

First time wearing my jeggings out of the house!  I must have tried on 30 pair before deciding on these.  They are very comfortable, and they fixed the issue I had with every other pair – if they fit in the hips, the legs were too big for my skinny calves.  I seem to be pear shaped only on the top of my legs – even when I weighed 15 lbs more than I do now, I still had very skinny legs.   These are probably teenager sized, which is why they work.  The tunic is actually the dress I thrifted and showed a few weeks ago.  See how nicely a petite dress works as a tunic?  I do this pretty often.

It’s my friend’s 30th birthday, and we’re all going to the Cheesecake factory, and then for bowling and karaoke (well, I will not be bowling, because it hurts my hands, but I will be watching!)

Wednesday:

Dress: Thrifted (from the 90s perhaps?)

Leggings: Forever 21

Boots: Kensie Girl

I really love this dress, even if the pattern is a bit wild!  And yes, I am wearing it with crazy leggings, because they were the only ones clean, and it was cold outside!

Sunday

Cardigan: Knitted by me (Veronik Avery design from Vogue knitting.)

Dress: Vogue 1023

Boots: Target

Running errands.  I went back and shortened this dress again, because it grew on the hanger.  The hem may be a bit uneven now, but I’m not sure I care that much.  I love this sweater!  Now that I’m hardly wearing pants, I find my sweaters difficult to wear – I have so many that I made to wear with jeans, and the silhouettes and lengths don’t work nearly as well with dresses.  But I’m trying to wear them!
