What I Wore: Back to School

Here we are in September, and I thought I would do a recap of a recent week of “What I Wore to Work”…a little throw back to the 2014-2015 school year when I recapped every day of what I wore!  That year now seems like a lifetime ago!

Monday was my birthday, and my boss told me when I was sitting at my desk that I looked like I had on a jailbird shirt. That was nice.  Despite that, I love a mixed stripe and this was super comfy workday outfit. Both the t-shirt and the skirt are from everybody’s favorite, Target. 🙂  The skirt is one from the Who What Wear collection a couple of years ago, that I looked and looked at, then finally picked up when it was less than $9.  Those heart earrings are also from Target, I love the Bauble Bar collection there. So many cute earrings for $12!

Tuesday I wore one of my favorites, the faux-jumpsuit, black joggers and black top.  Mostly meaning an entire strip down isn’t required to use the bathroom. These woven earrings are an Amazon find and of course, it’s work, so I had a cardigan along for the day.  Also worth noting, I picked up this sleeveless turtleneck during tax-free weekend, and in a funny coincidence I found a picture the next week from a 2001 gathering with my college besties in which I was wearing a sleeveless black turtleneck.  Old habits die hard.

I’ve been wearing my white pants most every week over the summer. That mean 1/2 of my weekday outfits were chosen…white pants one day and jeans every Thursday. This particular day was simple with taupe blouse and paired with my treat-yo-self Kendra Scott birthday 50% off earrings that I’ve looked at for nearly a year.

First day of school! Even though I wasn’t starting the school year, it was the first day of school and I got to be on a couple of campuses for the start and finish of the first day. This dress was a J Crew outlet clearance and if you haven’t noticed a theme yet…this is day 3 of nude shoes.  🙂  And, yes, that’s me on my first day to Kindergarten with my bus rider note pinned on and my Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox in tow. Surprisingly, I worked the bus ramp on the first day of school and several high schoolers had no idea of what bus they were supposed to ride, maybe they should have had a note pinned on, too.

Jeans Friday! My favorite. Also, I have all the love for blazers and have worn them lots lately, stay tuned.  A white T and jeans has long been a favorite for me and I had a couple of meetings this day, so the blazer dressed it up a little bit.  Oh, and another day of nude shoes, this time wedges. Those fun earrings were a birthday gift. I’ve looked and looked at all kinds of various white fringe earrings and sometimes your besties know you better than you know yourself because I love these!

My other recent favorite…pajama sets! Good sleep makes for good work days, right?  I’ve picked up a couple of new sets over the last several months…

Both of these are from Target, one from clearance and one for my birthday.

Both of these are from Marshall’s. It’s too bad you can’t really see the colors, because the mix-print set is really pretty blues!

That’s a recent look at what I’ve been wearing. Nothing much new, mostly old favorites and simple pieces from my closet, except a few accessories.  Here’s to good nights of sleep and good work days ahead for your week.
