This weekend’s outfits range from a repeat of one of my favorite summer outfits to my typical winter weekend uniform. The cold weekend seemed like a signal that it was okay to pack up the last remnants of my summer wardrobe. I always struggle with the in-between season when I’m juggling two wardrobes. It feels good to be settled into my fall wardrobe and I’m ready to dig in and start creating new outfits. I’m sure we still have a few warm days in store, but I have plenty of dresses and short-sleeve tops to get through.
style notes // The longline cardigan over a summer dress makes the outfit more work appropriate and more fall-ish. The weather forecast showed that today was the last warm day for at least the next week. Even though I’m craving my fall clothes, I decided to get one last wear out of this dress and cardigan before I pack it up until spring. Simple jewelry and comfortable shoes are always a must for Fridays.
style notes // We had a huge weather shift overnight and the 80 degree temperatures dropped into the 40s. It was a cold, damp day. We had one football game, a birthday party drop off, and two soccer games despite the weather. Leggings seemed like the best option because the thought of sitting in the rain in jeans was just too uncomfortable.
I love wearing sweatshirts and this slim-fitting silhouette makes it feel more styled than an oversized hoodie. I opted for my Adidas since it was slightly damp and the leather keeps my feet more dry. For the late afternoon game, full on rain boots would have been better, but I wasn’t prepared for the heavier rain that started to come down as we pulled into the fields. Lesson learned, from now on we are bringing the full range of layers and protection on any day that threatens to be wet.
style notes // The chilly, wet weather continued and besides picking up my groceries (Walmart Grocery Pickup is AMAZING), I had no plans to leave the house. I made Pork Green Chili, did mountains of laundry, and focused on slowing down and enjoying mom duty.
I don’t always chose jeans for around the house, but I am working on breaking in these jeans I found on Poshmark, so I’m wearing them often. A soft, striped tee and cardigan feels like I put in a little more effort, but is just as comfy as sweats.
