I wear what I like and I like what I wear. A daily outfit blog: WhatIWore2Day

Western Strong

· But on the east side of the Sierra ·

I’m a western girl, through and through. You’ll have to pry the cowgirl boots off my cold, dead feet.


Hat, Free Press. Shirt, Banana Republic (thrifted). Skort, Faded Glory (thrifted). Boots, Ariat. Sunglasses, Target. Earrings, Claire’s. Belt, thrifted. Bag, vintage.


Western boots, western states, and western beer in a western thunderstorm. Yup. That’s the life.

Tweed Mini

If it weren’t for my extracurricular activities, I wouldn’t have an opportunity to wear much of my wardrobe. This tweed mini skirt was perfect for selling hair color but is a little short for conducting business seminars. Thank goodness for events with my clubs and associations!


Shirt, Hilinker. Skirt, J Crew (thrifted). Shoes, Seychelles. Sunglasses, Girlprops. Necklace, Serket Jewelry. Bag, Mondani. Belt, thrifted.


The downside of my extracurricular activities is they often lead to me eating this kind of stuff:


I had a slice of each.

At least it was just half a maple bar!

Assortment

· A surprise and a gamble ·

tango suspender fishnets black babydoll dress daily outfit blog ootd whatiwore2day

I ordered a four-pack assortment of novelty suspender tights in February and lost the nerve to wear them. In the meantime, I forgot what they looked like. This is the second pair I’ve tried in recent weeks (the ootd pics with the first pair were too scandalous to publish) and I like the surprise of discovering the pattern as I put them on. I’m wearing this pair backwards from the model’s picture, but I think I’ve got it right and she’s got it turned around. So far, this assortment has been a big hit at tango. (Especially the unpublished outfit. I know. I’m a tease.)


Dress, H&M (thrifted). Tights, TGD. Earrings, Green Tree Jewelry.

Dog’s Bandana

· Wearing my pet’s accessories ·

This bandana came from a Bark Box, but is too small for either dog. Usually, I wear it hiking to keep the sun off the back of my neck. Today, I tied it in my hair for a little doggie pirate flair.


Tank, Romwe. Shorts, High Sierra (thrifted). Sandals, Azura (thrifted). Bandana, Bark Box. Earrings, Green Tree Jewelry. Sunglasses, Armear. Belt, thrifted. Bag, Aldo.


I don’t mind sharing my accessories or food with the doggies. But I don’t share my gin and tonic. Especially not when it’s garnished with a lemon cucumber from my neighbor’s garden.

Leopard and Linen

· Big cat keeping cool ·

My usual formula with this very fitted, leopard pencil skirt is to combine it with a loose, button-front shirt and flats. Of course, I’ve worn it with a fitted top and heels, but that was in another industry. Currently, I need to keep things a little more G-rated. And with our current temps, a loose shirt and flats are preferred.


Shirt, Banana Republic (thrifted). Skirt, Body by Victoria. Shoes, Ferragamo (thrifted). Bag, Cappelli (thrifted). Earrings, Francesca’s Closet. Sunglasses, Marc Jacobs.


I’m just glad I don’t have to wear a fur coat! (Although the animals don’t seem to mind.)

Sunday Travel

· Headed to work ·

My work week often bleeds into the weekend. I use that time to prepare seminar materials or travel to or from the seminar location. The nicest thing about working on the weekend is I don’t have to dress like I’m working.


Shirt, Hollister (thrifted). Dress, Jams World (thrifted). Sandals, Seychelles (thrifted). Sunglasses, Marc Jacobs. Earrings, Ali’s Boutique. Bag, Cappelli (thrifted).

Sunday travel (to the Bay Area) gives me the chance to take pictures in my favorite spot: beneath I-80 at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area.


Of course, I couldn’t leave my doggies without spending time with them, first. We played with the ball at a nearby school. (And, yes, I pick up the poop.)

Snake on the Snake

· See the scenic Snake River ·

After presenting Excelling as a Manager or Supervisor, one of the audience suggested I dine at Elevation 486 along the Snake River canyon in Twin Falls. I thoroughly enjoyed the views. It wasn’t until I was editing the pictures that I realized I wore snake to the Snake.


Jacket, London Jean. Dress, Calvin Klein (thrifted). Slides, Paprika. Sunglasses, Target (similar). Necklace, vintage gift. Bag, Croft & Barrow.

Potatoes

· What did Ida hoe? ·

I’m in Idaho, the land of potatoes. Personally, I prefer the sweet potato over the white potato, but don’t tell the Idahoans.


Jacket, London Jean. Tank, Banana Republic (thrifted). Skirt, Lucky (thrifted). Slides, Paprika. Sunglasses, Target (similar). Earrings, Francesca’s Closet. Bag, Croft & Barrow.


Idaho is also the land of “pop.” I didn’t have any of that either. (But I did drink your beer, Idaho!)

Special Skirt

· Pencil in the front, ruffles in the back ·

Will I keep this oddball skirt forever? I certainly intend to do so. It’s holding up well and the narrow shape is just incentive not to get too fat to wear it.


Shirt, Forever 21. Skirt, Chaus Sport (thrifted). Mules, Carlos Santana (thrifted). Sunglasses, Toms (gift). Earrings, flea market. Hair stick, import store. Bag, A+ by Aldo. Bag strap, Lam Gallery.


I wore this outfit thrifting and picked up a few more blue and white pieces to add to my collection:


I try to only buy blue and white things that have a practical use: eat off of, drink out of, store things inside. For instance, I put this thrifted blue and white vase to work holding water and my rubber fig cutting.

Canceled

· Do you spell it with one L or two? ·

Today, I was supposed to be on my way to the Eastern Sierra to climb a portion of the Sawtooth Ridge. Instead, I canceled my plans due to wildfire smoke, illness, and simply just overbooking myself. I’ll use these three days to catch up and rest up before I’m off to Idaho at the end of the week.


Shirt, St John’s Bay (thrifted). Skort, Faded Glory (thrifted). Sneakers, Superga for Target. Hat, Charlotte Russe. Earrings, Stardust Remembered. Bag, Aldo.


Canceled plans gives me more time to spend with these weirdos:



One of Jackson’s nicknames is “Trash Monkey.” He’s living up to the moniker with his cat food can collection.
