What I Wore Today

Off to work in Seattle today. It's beautiful outside! I'm starting a new feature in my blog today called "What I Wore Today". Just for fun. :) Keep in mind that I'm no fashion model - I'm a 40-something year old every day kind of gal with a family to raise, a dog to feed, a job to work, bathrooms to clean  ... you get the idea.  I don't have a big budget for clothes, but I don't think you need one to have a pulled together look.  There are inexpensive places to find clothes that are affordable, comfortable, and stylish.  So here's what I wore today:
  • White button down blouse with a black belt.  I bought this at Marshalls a couple years ago and only recently started wearing it.  When I was heavier, I had this bad habit of buying clothes without trying them on first, as was the case with this shirt. I just didn't want to face reality in a badly lit dressing room, I guess. This blouse was waaayyyyy too small on me when I bought it - I couldn't even get my arms into the sleeves. But it fits me now!
  • Glen plaid pants.  These were another purchase that were way too small and just sat in my closet for the past two years. So this morning I spotted them and thought, "what the heck, let's try them". AND THEY WERE TOO BIG! I still wore them anyway. I figure I should wear them once before giving them back to the universe, just so I don't feel so guilty.  Contrary to how it might look, I usually return clothes that I can't wear, but I will admit to having a few things in my closet that I haven't worn yet.  Does anyone else buy clothes without trying them on first? Or buy things and don't wear them?  
  • A very pretty chocolate pearl necklace with monogrammed charm. My friend just started selling jewelry from Jewel Kade and I offered to "model" a piece of it while I was at a work event today that I coordinated. Oh the sacrifices I make for my friends!
  • Sorry, no shoes in this pic. What can I say, my husband took the picture. Does he not know that shoes are an integral part to an outfit? :) I wore light gray Bandolino peep toe flats that have a little silver metallic piping around them.
