I wear what I like and I like what I wear

Kid Tested

I hung out with a bunch of kids all day at a nature festival. They probably couldn’t have cared less what I wore, but I wanted to well represent our volunteer organization. I tried to create an outfit that was fun, sporty, modest, and just a half-step up from casual.

Tank, Old Navy. Capris, Arizona Jeans (consignment). Sneakers, Superga. Hat, Charlotte Russe. Backpack, Toms.

I think this outfit would have been perfect with a fox mask, but opted to chat with another volunteer instead of making one.

I Like Big Bags

Is there anything better than carrying a giant bag? I managed to fit a cutting board, 12-inch knife, and loaf of apricot-orange bread in this wool blanket bag. I wouldn’t take those contents through airport security, but I did take them to my Masters swim social.

Jacket, Mossimo. Dress, Express. Boots, Madden Girl. Sunglasses, Meow Meow. Earrings and brooch, vintage. Belt, Lucky Brand (consignment). Bag, El Paso Saddleblanket Co.

I think Jackson could smell the lingering odor of warm quick bread because he was awfully snuggly at picture time.

Too bad I couldn’t fit my egg white powder in here, too. I’m working on getting HUGE!

Tenth Blogoversary

It’s my tenth blogoversary and I’m not quitting this outfit diary. Are you curious about what’s new in Year Eleven of WhatIWore2Day?

Shirt, Moda International. Skirt, Talbot’s. Shoes, Enzo Angiolini.

First of all, I’ve given up on replacing the green cardigan that I wore with this blouse and skirt in my very first outfit post (and the first four blogoversaries). After the sweater was ruined by dye transfer from a dark purple shirt, I attempted to replace it with three different green jackets and a denim vest for my later blogoversaries. This year, I just wore a nude camisole underneath and went topper-less. This is California, after all. We still see 80 degrees and higher in October.

Second, I’m embracing my natural hair color. It used to be dishwater blonde, but now it’s coming in silvery and I like it.

Last, I am trying Snapchat as a platform to show you behind the scenes, outfit details, and outfits in motion. My user name is whatiwore2day. (I’ll be honest, I’m still trying to figure it out, but Beefy is younger than I, so hopefully he’ll help.)

Here’s to another great year!
