What I Wore Wednesday

I’d like to start up/trial run a little series here titled What I Wore Wednesday, where each Wednesday I’ll post what I wore (if you couldn’t have guessed that from the title) and where it came from. I think fashion sense absolutely crosses over to decor style and it’ll be interesting to see how the two go together.

Several blogs I follow do something similar, which is where I got the idea. Cassie over at Hi Sugarplum!  has a whole section of her blog dedicated to outfit inspirations – where she draws style from the environment around her. Kate over at The Small Things Blog has a keen eye for creating cute  outfits that are affordable and realistic for everyday.

I chose Wednesday because it’s smack in the middle of the week, so chances are I’ll be in work clothes. Basically if I’m not in work clothes, I look like crap. I hate being fancy, I’m no good at being uncomfortable in my clothes, and really I just want to wear jeans and a t-shirt everyday. Right now I’m typing this blog in fleece pj’s and a hooded sweatshirt I’ve owned since high school. So when I say “Wednesday” I mean what I have on from 7:30am-3:30pm.

Anyways, here we go!

Springy! Cute! Work appropriate!

I class it up at work and manage to be pretty stylish most days. But there are several things that always hold true:

  • I am forever in layers. I always have a tank top on under every single thing I wear. I don’t know why, I started in high school and I just never stopped. I also absolutely hate it when it’s so warm out that I can’t wear nylons anymore- I eventually succumb to it, but not without a fight.
  • I will never wear a sleeveless shirt without something over it. This is partly because I have a shoulder tattoo and partly because in working at a college I am surrounded by students and want to set a good example of what is work appropriate for young professionals.

Why yes, I did chop off my head in this picture. Do you know how many shots Matt would have had to take to get one that I find online acceptable? I’ll tell you: one million. So no face shots! But anyway, here’s how it all pulled together and I think it’s darn cute! I was pretty comfy today in my flats scooting around campus. Most days I’m in 4-5 inch heels, but during course registration time I do a lot of walking new students around and shuffling paperwork from here to there so I try to keep myself flat to the ground.

And here’s the run down on where it all came from, top to bottom:

  • Necklace: Forever 21 (sometime in the past 2 years- thanks Amy!!)
  • Black cardigan: New York & Company (sometime in the past 2 years)
  • Cream top: Kohl’s (yesterday!)
  • Black dress pants: Kohl’s (about 5 years ago)
  • Ballet flats : Marshall’s (sometime in the past 2 years)

So what did you wear today? Do you post fashion on your blog? Let’s link up! Share your link in the comments or email sandpaperandglue@gmail.com and I’ll add it to the post!

  1. I really like this idea! I also REALLY like that top 🙂 I tend to find a few good things at Kohls here and there. I’m wearing a sweater from the Daisy Fuentes collection at Kohls. It’s cream and has a bunch of fabric flowers on the right shoulderblade area.

    • Thanks! I realized yesterday that I’m officially old enough to shop in the grown-up ladies section of Kohl’s, and I found two really cute tops there. But I did sneak back into Junior’s for a few other things 🙂
      I am very much loving fabric flowers on shirts, I have a few like that too!
