Things I Wore :: July 2019
Another month in the bag! We had a fairly mild July, save a few super humid days there in the middle.
7/1: Aw, heck. I love this shirt. It may have been slightly too warm for jeans and boots AND a jacket but I did it anyway. I can get away with wearing this shirt to work because I *bought* this shirt at work during a pop up happy hour shop with the CEO’s daughter-in-law. Duh. Shirt, Mother Denim. Jacket, Asos. Jeans, Banana Republic. Boots, Coach.
7/3: Every year, my friend Jeff throws a pre-4th pool party to celebrate his inevitable hangover for the next day (since he’s off, you know). This is me being festive. Top, SheIn. Skirt, Forever 21. Sandals, Gucci.
7/4: Happy Independence day! I declared independence from pants and honestly, the fireworks were a bit crap this year. Shirt, Elizabeth & Clarke. Shorts, Zara. Sandals, Dillard’s.
7/5-7: Spent the weekend in Eureka Springs so no outfits to report. Mostly stuff from Nativ tbh.
7/12: Our condo has drinks & dinner the second Friday of each month. We ended up ditching dinner and checking out 2nd Friday Art Night, where museums in the area stay open late and there’s live music. I also wore this to work! Top, SheIn. Jeans, Old Navy. Sandals, JustFab.
7/13-14: Shrug emoji.
7/16: Work from home outfit, but then I had to go in to take care of some stuff so it became a lazy work outfit (and an excuse to show off the fanny pack I won from an 80s party this weekend). Sweatshirt, Fabletics. Top, Loft. Leggings, Old Navy. Sneakers, Asos.
7/18: Wearing a blazer was FAR too ambitious today, but my boss was in town and we were running a booth at a conference so I foolishly believed I’d wear it. Blazer, Asos. Shirt, Elizabeth & Clarke. Jeans, Hudson. Flats, Chanel.
7/19: Day 2 of the conference + boss situation, with added bonus of our CEO and the FCC Commissioner so I dressed like I knew what I was doing with my life. Dress, The Limited. Scarf, SheIn. Heels, Louboutin.
7/20: Saturday! All we did was go to dinner and get severely disappointed by the world’s largest Tesla coil, so I kept it casual. Top, Old Navy. Shorts, H&M. Sneakers, Asos.
7/21: ALEXANDER HAMILTON! I snagged some seats to Hamilton in Memphis and UGH. Yes, it lives up to the hype. I wore my two-piece star set again (last seen @ Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) so I guess it’s my official Broadway outfit now. Set, SheIn. Sandals, JustFab.
7/24: After a month of returns and exchanges, my Anine Bing tee is finally here and I *love* it. Expect a whole post about this brand soon, because it makes me feel way cooler than I actually am. Tee, Anine Bing. Jeans, Banana Republic. Heels, Manolo Blahnik.
7/25 (night): Dinner with friends at my fave, Bruno’s. I managed to spill sauce on this top but it remains one of my favorite two piece outfits. Two piece, SheIn.
7/26 (night): I finally washed my hair, just in time for dinner with friends at The Pantry. I just got this blazer from Asos and was THRILLED when I discovered it matched these shorts enough to make a summer suit! What luck. Blazer, Asos. Shorts, Zara. Heels, 1.STATE. Top, The Limited. Bag, Prada.
7/27: My husband is out of town on a bachelor party, so I spent my weekend in casual wear. I guess I put this on at one point to leave the house but I can’t be sure what I wore the rest of the time. Shirt, Anine Bing. Shorts, H&M. Sandals, Gucci.
7/29: It’s too hot to think, so I wore a black dress to work. Dress, Mango. Flats, Amazon.
7/31: I actually was gonna try the black dress thing again, but these awesome wide leg jeans came in from Asos and I had to wear them. They’re like fashionable JNCOs and I’m living for it. Jeans, Asos. Top, J.Crew Factory. Wedges, Prada via TheRealReal.
