What I Wore Wednesday VI

It’s Wednesday! And you know what that means… it’s raining. It’s a curse. But besides that, it’s finally warm enough for summer clothes!

Now that all the students are gone it’s pretty slow around here, lots of time for revisions and catch up work. Today I decided to wear a blue button down, brown dress capris, and blue shoes.  Nothing too fancy, but still work appropriate. I haven’t worn these capris since last summer and whew they still fit, but seriously I really need to get my exercise on. As for the shirt, I don’t wear it a ton because it wrinkles super easy and animal hair sticks to it like crazy- but for a slow day sitting at my desk it should be fine.

What you can’t see too well in the picture is a pearl necklace, a slim gold bangle, and a gold pinky ring. If nothing else, WIWW is encouraging me to actually wear some of the jewelry that’s been hiding in my room for years. I have a hard time wearing nice jewelry, the Revere girl in me really just wants to wear plastic hoops and fake diamonds every day and unfortunately that’s just a weekend look now. ::le sigh::

But let me not forget to mention the real superstars here: Jergens lotion and Blister Block. I’m so pale that my tan is basically everyone else’s natural color, so there’s no way you’re getting me in shorts, skirts, or capris unless I’ve had at least a week’s work of time with Jergens natural glow. It’s the only thing that doesn’t turn me orange and doesn’t look completely unnatural.

Further, most of my open toe non-wedge heels are very pinchy. So Blister Block is amazing, it’s like this teeny tiny deodorant looking stick that goes on like an invisible wax wherever you might get shoe bites and it just runs house all day long. I think I picked it up in the band aid aisle- I’ve had this same tiny stick for a couple years now, so it’s worth the $8 or $9 that you spend.



As for where everything came from:

  • Shirt: Charlotte Russe (within the past 3 years)
  • Capris: Kohl’s (within the past 3 years)
  • Shoes: Payless (within the past 3 years)
  • Necklace, bracelet, ring: all gifts!
