You know what makes sense? Posting last week’s outfit roundups at the beginning of the next week, that’s what! So here’s what I wore last week, from casual work outfits, to swimsuits, to even one of my recently thrifted items.
GUYS! This is the a top I got at the thrift store for $2.50. Yes, $2.50! It’s actually still available and I highly recommend it. The notched neckline is perfect for layering necklaces, and I could see it being more formal with a pencil skirt or slacks if I need it to be. LOVE IT!
I’ve also really been into expanding my Levi’s collection lately. I got the pair I’m wearing here at Gordman’s for under $20, and had them tailored at the ankles since the only size they had available was a tall. Considering how high the price of these jeans are elsewhere, I still got them for a steal including the cost of tailoring.
I hate when I do this, but sometimes it happens: I’ve had this flannel top in my closet since July with the tags still on it…never worn! I finally pulled it out and styled it how I always pictured it with white jeans. I think white jeans are a great way to transition into spring, especially with more cold weather pieces like flannel or booties.
I’m pretty casual most days at my office, but even more so this day since we were moving furniture. Sneakers, stretchy jeans, a comfy tee, and a headband to keep my hair out of my face (and because it just looks cute!).
My absolute favorite stripe combination is black and beige. I think it looks so classic! I own three items in this specific stripe color and I have to remind myself not to wear them in a row all the time! This tunic sweater is old from Old Navy, but I found a similar one on Amazon linked above.
The greatest and most affordable loafer of all time has been restocked! Yes, the black loafers I wear anywhere and everywhere and with everything is back. And they have some new colors! I actually have this shoe in both black and nude, because why not?
Remember this sweater from my first outfit roundup? Yea, it’s too soft and cozy to not keep wearing when it’s cold out. We had just gotten a few inches of snow the night before, hence the need for the sweater and boots for my Saturday thrifting excursion.
Sunday – Morning
Swimsuit – similar (under $20)
I had a little bit of treat yo’ self moment this past Sunday. I went to Sunwater Spa, where they use the nearby spring waters (it’s where the ‘Springs’ in Colorado Springs comes from) in their tubs that have mountain views. If that sounds relaxing, it’s because it is. It was a nice way to start the morning before heading out for errands.
My swimsuit is old from J. Crew, but it’s a really simple black one piece that ties at the shoulders.
Sunday – Day
This past Sunday I asked you guys what you thought of cropped flares, since I was planning on wearing them. The overwhelming consensus on Instagram stories was no– you don’t like them, and I didn’t think they looked right either. So I switched to these cropped straight jeans instead. I might try and style my cropped flares with sandals once it warms up, because I’m not 100% ready to give up on them yet!
In addition to errands I stopped into a local coffee shop as part of research for one of my next travel blog posts: The Ultimate Guide to the Best Coffee Shops in Colorado Springs. My guide to Richmond coffee shops is one of my most popular, so it’s only fair I do one for my new home. It’s going to take me awhile to visit all the places on my list, but I’ll keep you guys in the know as I go.
I’ve got another post with a thrifted piece planned for later this week, so if you like those kinda posts stay tuned!
