I was hoping to get a post up this week with another Day in the Life (a school day this time), but I ran out of time. So – that will have to be posted next week!
Today I wanted to share another Feel Good Fashion post – this time with “going out wear”. Most of the outfits that I post are outfits I wore to school, to a business meeting/presentation or while studying. I don’t think I’ve shown y’all what I wear when I go out for date nights or out with friends yet.
Enter this week’s outfit. I wore this last week for a date night with Matt. We went out to dinner and to a local bar afterward to have a few drinks and hang out.
And I’ll go ahead and apologize – the quality of these pictures isn’t the best. It was late, late when I took these and had to rely on artificial light!
I really love wearing my skinny jeans with wedges on the weekends. I can’t/won’t wear any sort of heel when I’m at school because I don’t want to walk all over campus in them. But wearing them on the weekends is so nice! Also, when we’re going somewhere nice enough – I love to wear a blazer or a more formal jacket/top.
I LOVE this jacket. I found it at TJ Maxx and got it in a 14, which felt perfect in the store. It’s definitely a bit tight when I go out and am moving my arms all around, but its also gotten much looser in the 2 months I’ve owned it and it’s much more comfortable to wear now.
And the shoes – well, I love wedges. I used to wear 4” inch heels EVERY DAY when I first graduated college. I quit wearing them several years ago (when I started running), but I kept my heels because they were just too pretty. The problem with keeping them and never wanting to wear them is everything else wants me to wear them.
After some pressure from friends on New Year’s this year, I decided to donate them all a few weeks ago. It’s been so freeing to no longer have them in my closet and replacing that space on my shoe rack with my wedges. Plus my little wedge collection is growing and I love it!
Wedges are definitely comfortable enough for me to wear when I’ll be working in a hospital and I am super excited I found these particular ones because I love the color! I also found them in a shiny cream, and they are beautiful.
Here’s where the outfit is from:
- Cami: Nordstrom Rack $10
- Pink shirt: Nordstrom Rack $9.50
- Blazer: TJ Maxx $25
- 1969 Lightweight Legging Jeans: Gap $49
- Wedges: Calvin Klein from TJ Maxx $40
- Earrings: Old
Can you believe these skinny jeans wouldn’t button two months ago? And now I’m out wearing them every day, like it’s no big deal. Thank you body for changing despite me not seeing it on the scale!
What do y’all wear when you go out?
