what i wore wednesday: stitchfix & booties

it's been a while since i've done a wiww post.

there must be something about our slightly cooler weather (fall in texas is highly elusive) that motivated me to get myself together more often.

or maybe it's my new booties.

whichever.
jeans: gap
oversized t: free people, nordstrom
leopard belt: target
ankle boots: sam edelman, nordstrom (on super markdown!!)
watch: michael kors
bangles: kendra scott, neiman marcus last call (super clearance markdown!!)
monocle necklace: twisted silver
i'm not gonna lie, this slouchy t-shirt and jeans is my new favorite outfit and i may or may not have worn it on repeat a few times over the last week. it's the me i want to be, casual and comfortable but slightly edgy and hip. plus it's all easy to throw on in less than five minutes yet look somewhat together.
denim shirt: gap
maxi skirt & grey tank: target
necklace: twisted silver
leather cuff: farmgirl paints
jordana bangles: kendra scott, nordstrom
same ankle boots as above

can you wear ankle boots with maxi skirts?

sure. why not?

this is especially helpful when 1.) the weather is cool and wedges seem weird and B.) you're in desperate need of a pedicure. plus you can stretch summer staples into fall. for the win!
the cooler(ish) temps inspired me to wear one of my favorite stitchfix pieces (the orange dolman sleeve sweater) for a teacher conference this week.

do y'all know about stitchfix? it's an awesome online personal shopper/stylist service. you fill out a detailed profile about your style and sizes then you get a fun box on your porch filled with five items of clothing/accessories chosen just for you by a stylist. you try them on at home, keep what you love and return what you don't in a prepaid mailer. i've kept a few things that i might not have picked for myself if i'd been shopping but loved once i tried them on. it costs $20 but you can apply that toward what you keep, if you keep all 5 items you get 25% off your total (i haven't done that yet, i usually keep 1-3 items).
sweater: stitchfix
jeans: vigoss, nordstrom
nude flats: vince camuto, nordstrom
(they are such comfy flats with a touch of dressy with the patent)
sanibel pendant: stella & dot

i like to do style posts from time to time, not because i imagine myself a style or fashion blogger (as if!) or because i think i am all that, but because i enjoy seeing what other people are wearing (on blogs and pinterest)--and then copying the styles i like--and maybe you do to. yes, i feel silly posing on our porch or wherever, yes, it's awkward if someone sees me (but really, who cares?) and i have no idea why i feel compelled to look down at the ground like there's something fascinating happening there. yes, i like clothes and accessories and makeup and yes, that might make me seem superficial or vain or materialistic--and maybe it is, sorry--but only to a small degree i hope. that's not all of me. i don't think there's anything wrong with making an effort to look cute on a semi-regular basis, just not obsess about it. you know?

happy wednesday, my stylish friends!

  1. You look comfy-effortless but put together! I think your WIWW posts are fun and they help someone like me! I finally bought myself a pair of Vigoss jeans and I think that was my first time ever buying jeans without trying them on first, but I am now a fan. I got the bootcut and really like them. I want to try stitchfix.I love what you picked.
