Welcome to my first ever edition of A Week of Outfits. It’s something I’ve thought about doing for a while (I recently saw Carly does this on her blog, I like how she re-wears a lot of items). When I decided to re-evaluate and ultimately pretty drastically change how I approached fashion content two years ago I struggled to find my way back. How could I balance my desire to share fashion content and outfit ideas with my passion for sustainability. I also grappled with what I felt was a constant push for consumerism across the industry of blogging (fashion in particular) along with social media platforms like Instagram and Youtube. It made me not want to share anything at all.
I’m in a place now where I feel good about sharing fashion content again. My goal is not to get you to buy more but hopefully to find inspiration and ideas for your own wardrobe. Occasionally I add something to my wardrobe or partner with a fashion brand, but my goal is to add to my closet with intention. I want to create a wardrobe that’s based on pieces I love, not because they’re new, on sale, a certain “it” brand or a specific trend, but because they fit me well, are made with quality and conscious materials, and I feel good wearing them.
So, here’s what I wore last week. I have found that getting dressed every day not only makes me feel good but also makes me more productive. It’s a great way to jump start my day. I might miss a day or two but my goal is to get a photo of my outfit every day for the week and I will share here on the blog on Tuesdays. I will always share where I got each item, if it’s secondhand or old I’ll do my best to find something similar.
A Week of Outfits 4.27.21
I don’t remember much from Tuesday but it was obviously cold, lol.
Patagonia Raven Rocks Jacket (check out WornWear for used Patagonia too!), White & Warren Cashmere Hoodie (Jess20 for 20% off), old H&M Stripe shirt (similar), Prana Pillar Leggings, Botkier Chelsea Boots (mine are a few years old but the style is the same)
I take Marin to swim class in the mornings on Wednesdays and then I play tennis in the afternoon when she naps so I usually wear something more casual and easy. Getting dressed in a tiny changing room while also trying to dress a toddler with a wet bathing suit is, interesting.
Mostly a day of computer work, calls and scheduling/planning, etc. I really love this button down because it’s so comfy but looks polished.
I usually try to sign off work a little early on Fridays to spend time with Marin before her afternoon nap. We went and picked up a bunch of veggies and flowers to plant for the summer.
We pretty much spent the whole day outside. Morning walk at the beach, and the rest of the day in the yard gardening, weeding, etc. I was worried I’d ruin these leggings gardening in them but all the dirt came out in the wash no problem.
Please remind me never to wear jeans on days when I bring Marin to swim class. Great in theory, terrible in practice (pulling stiff jeans on over slightly damp skin in a tiny cramped changing room, not ideal). But I love these jeans, they were such a good find from thredUP. Monday was mostly a catch up/work day, I got a lot of blog stuff done. I have a big partnership I’m announcing soon so lots of planning in the works and getting organized for that.
