My Weekend Wardrobe

Friday I worked from home, Saturday I went out and Sunday… well just wanted to share a typical Sunday look. How I dress when not at work…

Friday:

I worked from home, but that didn't mean I lounged around in yoga pants and an old tee shirt. I knew I had to be just as productive as I am in the office, while watching over Emerson. I have found I am more productive when I am dressed nicely.

Cardigan Ann Taylor LOFT
White ribbed tank – Caslon
Jeans – NYDJ
Boots (pulled over jeans) DUO Boots
Silver chain with wedding band, silver cuff and hoops

Not going to wear a suit or anything, but I did look put together. Helped when at 10am Emerson was in need of some sunshine and we took a break and headed to the playground. Then come 4:30 when my husband was home from his shoot, I didn't have to clean up to head out to REI and dinner with him and Emerson.

Saturday:

Sweater – Ann Taylor
Jeans – NYDJ
Necklace – Ann Taylor LOFT (no longer online which is a shame because it's SO CUTE!  Gold big links with gold thin chain woven though and big dangly crystals)
Shoes – Miz Mooz
Saturday night my husband and I had a double date with my best friend S and her husband.  We went to dinner, and then the Caps hockey game and then out to a bar.  I don't own anything red, so figured I would go neutral with black.  And you know me, I don't own any sports-related garb or casual wear, so this is my version of casual attire.  Hey, the jeans are super stretchy and comfy and I can walk miles in these shoes – perfect for the evening!
In high school I became a big Caps fan as that one of my boyfriends was a stick boy for the team and I got to go to games for free.  To this day, hockey is one of the only sports I enjoy watching.  I haven't been to a game in a long time, and it was an awesome game (won 7-2!) and we had fab seats.

Sunday:

Striped TeeLands End Canvas
Jeans  – NYDJ
Boots DUO Boots
Silver hoops

This is my errand running, farmers market visiting, brunch eating attire.  The day started by driving past the local farmers market to get Zeke's iced coffees and a danish for my husband.  We then went to my mom's house to pick up Emerson and had brunch.  We then came home to put Emerson down for her nap and did chores – laundry, cleaning, cooking.  Was a perfect outfit for crawling around the playground with Emerson.

So, a little peek into my weekend attire.  A weekend full of my NYDJ jeans (they got washed Friday evening and again on Sunday – yep I am wearing them again today) and my “Bern” boots from DUO – both comfortable, versatile pieces that I am thrilled are in my wardrobe!

    Allie – you are looking amazing. You look so healthy and happy!

    Allie – I had a Land’s End gift card, so picked up this tee as well. I am a size 12 and usually avoid stripes, but I think it looks darling on you.
    I am now on the hunt for the perfect jeans. I want something that comes up higher – low rise jeans give me a Larry-The-Cable-Guy beer gut – really need a higher rise.

    This t-shirt is so cute on you! Horizontal stripes are always iffy, but these make you look darling!

    Ali — so nice to have you back with daily posts. First, I bought my first pair of NYDJs, and they are beyond fantastic. Had three people ask if I had lost weight — total score on those. I also ordered the striped tee from Land’s End Canvas (found the free shipping coupon online, thanks for the tip), and it should arrive today.

    I also started Weight Watchers meetings again last week, after trying it online-only with little success. I also am a cheater on the program, but I agree, being more mindful of my eating overall is crucial for me. No mindless snacking. We’ll see on Wednesday if I have had a successful first week.

    Thanks for all your great recommendations!

    I love all of these outfits. Especially that striped tee outfit. Sounds like a lovely relaxing weekend, and you looked great throughout it!

    I love that striped tee. And your hair has looked so great lately. I love it.
