My Wardrobe Today – Monday

my wardrobe today 107

Blue oxford shirtLands End Canvas 
Black woven belt – Old Navy (no longer available)
Ivory leopard print skirt Ann Taylor
Black tightsNordstrom
Black bootiesMiss Sixty “Jaiden”
Silver hoops and cuff

I went to Ann Taylor after work on Friday and found this skirt on the sale rack.  Pretty cute, and pretty versatile.  I was inspired by Style Underdog's fabulous zebra skirt.  I used to have a zebra-print skirt from Isaac Mizrahi for Target but sold it a couple years ago when it no longer fit.  This is a great replacement, I like the texture of the fabric – easy to dress up and down.  I also got a jacket, which I will probably wear tomorrow.  On sale as well, and a SIZE 12!  Two months ago I was wearing a 16P in jackets, and even then they were too tight in the arms.  If this jacket was a 12P it would have fit even better!  I am GOING to be back into a 10 by summer, that IS my goal.

I also told my husband if I got down to a 10, I would be interested in going back to Bonnaroo.  This last year was fun, but it was hard being overweight.  The extra pounds made the heat even more unbearable, made it hard to find appropriate and comfortable clothing, made the walking more difficult.  This year is the 10-year anniversary of the festival, and will surely have an amazing lineup.  If we DO go, we may splurge for VIP as a celebration to our last year at the fest, and to make it extra comfortable.

    A WHOLE bunch of fantastic winter pieces just went on sale at Lands End Canvas. And today only there’s an extra 30% off everything + free shipping on orders over $100 (see code and PIN on the site). It says its only good until noon today eastern time, but I just put in an order 5 minutes ago. I spent about $115 total on a pair of skinny cords, a pair of slim jeans (their jeans are great), an oxford shirt, a wool skirt, and a chunky cardigan sweater.

    And Allie I have you to thank for it… because you introduced be to Lands End Canvas and I have been loving it.

    Oh yeah, and I love your skirt. 🙂

    Such a sleek, chic ensemble! That skirt is absolutely killer.

    I’m still in love with chambray shirts paired with something more formal (or WILD in this case)! You look great.

    Allie, I LOVE this skirt!! I totally would’ve snatched it up too if I had been there! I adore it paired with the chambray shirt and black tights – VERY chic 🙂

    Thanks Callandra & ShoeAddict! And yes, I am still bf’ing, but it’s like 1-2 times a day at most and not really for nourishment, more for comfort. But I think that is a big difference lately is that is does nurse less so I am less hungry. 🙂

    Great job on the weight loss, I know you can do it! Your skirt is fabulous!! …(said slowly for effect 😉

  14. December 20, 2010 / 10:59 pm

    I love this pairing. You look great. Congrats on the weight loss. I so wish I were having the same success 🙁

    Are you still bf’ing? I find that I’m still just SO HUNGRY. And especially lately… It seems she wants to nurse a lot more lately.

    Thanks Lini!

  16. December 20, 2010 / 9:57 pm

    Loving that skirt!

    Thanks Naina!

    Allie-this is a perfectly styled outfit! Love the denim paired up with the animal print skirt and I love the monochromatic look of black tights/shoes.

    I think it looks short on the model because she is model height. This is a 14 petite and is a really wearable length IRL.

    Oops, never mind! I just clicked the link and saw the details. I may have to treat myself to this one after the holidays. It really is cute. I also like that it is more knee length instead of being pretty short like shown on the model.

  22. December 20, 2010 / 7:19 pm

    Jess, they are currently having 40% off a bunch of styles and free shipping over $50. They also have a sale section with some AMAZING deals going on right now. I believe this shirt is on sale!

    Love that skirt! And thanks for reminding me of Lands End Canvas – I’ve been meaning to check it out….

  24. December 20, 2010 / 7:03 pm

    Thanks mamacita! Putting the weight loss goal on the blog gives me a bit more motivation – don’t want to fail in front of the entire blogosphere!

  25. December 20, 2010 / 7:01 pm

    Allie you look amazing!! You will totally hit your goal

  26. December 20, 2010 / 7:00 pm

    Thanks Kinsey! I love the pattern, and love that it was on sale! 🙂

  27. December 20, 2010 / 6:59 pm

    You’re lookin great! I love that skirt! I have a very similar one from Target and I wear it all the time!

  28. December 20, 2010 / 6:50 pm

    Thanks chickie! I figure we also always go as an anniversary gift to ourselves, what a nice way to celebrate 7 years of marriage, 2 years of having a fabulous little person, and 10 years of our favorite music festival? 🙂

    You look GORGEOUS. Such an inspiration to me to keep going on WW as you are looking so svelte lately.

    You are right–it is hard to do things when one is overweight, and can really make fun things problematic. When I was big, I used to hate taking my kids to the park. HATED it. Just getting them out of the car and standing around winded me. That is what I reminded myself of when I recently fell of the wagon–I don’t care how I look so much, but I don’t want to get back there. I say splurge for the VIP–you already deserve it!
