{throwback} How I Wore It Then to Now

  Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,,, 
Since Christian and I didn't get out to take photos this weekend I thought I'd bring back my How I Wore It series. We're headed into Spring so I'm focusing on florals and bright colors.

Hopefully we'll go for a walk this weekend so I can take some outfit pictures for next week. I'm not a huge fan of taking pictures in front of our house (don't want the neighbors to think I'm a weirdo) so not sure I'll want to take them at home. But we'll see how desperate I become!

I hope everyone is staying as safe as possible during all this Coronavirus craziness. Christian has been on high alert since January so luckily we were stocked up on food before the national freakout the past couple weeks.  At this point all anyone can do is stay away from people as much as possible. Luckily I already work from home so I will be trying not to leave the house, except perhaps for walks, for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately Christian still has to go to the office, even though they have the ability to work from home. Hopefully his boss allows that soon.

Jason Wu x Target floral dress
This dress has been my default Easter dress since I bought it in 2012. It's the perfect shape and I love the graphic floral.

Valentino Jacket
I don't wear this jacket very much and I never really "loved" it. It was my buy in The Outnet's second birthday sale in 2011 where everything was $2. You were only able to buy one item and my first few choices sold before I could grab them. This looked great on the model so I decided to give it a try. Sadly it just wasn't very me. But I can never get rid of it because of the amazing deal.

Equipment 'Sophie' pink leopard print blouse
I don't like pink, but I love this blouse! I bought it at an Equipment and Current/Elliott Sample sale in 2013. I thought I would wear it less than the purple blouse I bought - turns out I Was wrong. I wore the purple one a few times but it was too thick and I preferred the thinner fabric of this leopard print blouse.

Jones New York Pink Blazer
Like I said above, I'm not a huge pink fan. But for some reason this light pink blazer spoke to me back in 2010. I bought it in anticipation of needing more professional pieces for work since I had just graduated college. I've gotten quite a bit of wear out of it and still enjoy it.

I've always enjoyed sweater dresses but was never able to find many that stood the test of time. Most I got bored of within a year. This one, on the other hand, has been a Summer staple since

Zara Floral Top
Another piece that isn't generally "me." I'm normally afraid of wearing white but this blouse was super pretty so I gave it a shot! I had to buy a cream camisole to wear under it since it's super sheer but I always enjoy breaking it out in Spring and Summer.

  1. I love seeing these kinds of wrap up posts! That floral dress is the cutest and the yellow jacket is such a stunning piece! :)

    My husband's office is closed and while I worked from home this week I'm not sure what I'll do going forward - the government here keeps saying measures will be in place for 6 months so the company is trying to think of some way we can safely come to work to avoid us going crazy stuck at home I guess, haha! The schools are still open for the moment so I'm still getting out for that and honestly that's a welcome break as I know it might not last!

    Hope that your week is going well :)

  2. Oh so cool to share all of these looks! And yes hopefully Christian can work from home soon. I swear this country is just kind of living in denial to a degree. They keep talking about social distancing but I live about 20 mins or so from JFK and I hear planes flying overhead every 5-7 minutes. Spring Break is in full swing in Florida. How is this social distancing? The idea is to do extreme measures right away to flatten the curve to avoid a much longer and even harsher problems...

  3. This is such a cool post. I just love Equipment blouses, they are so transcendent. Hope you're all staying safe and that your partner can start to work from home soon.


  4. I always appreciate versatility and the life spam of my clothes and like the way you styled yours in some many different ways. I love Valentino jacket, it's a little bit OTT that's why I would wear it with something very simple with clean straight lines.

  5. I love seeing all the ways you've styled your favorite pieces over the years, the leopard blouse is definitely a favorite! So good with the leather burgundy pants.
    It's a good reminder that blogging used to be about remixing and not just endless shopping.
    Also I like making note of any photos I took ;)

    1. Haha, yep! So easy to tell when you or Christian took the photos because they're so much better than my tripod (or having Dad quickly take them....not that he's a bad photographer, he's actually really really good, we just don't do it anywhere exciting, haha)

  6. Forbidden to ever get rid of that Valentino blazer, it's amazing :)
    Oh and the pink one too, very pretty.
