This is a Wednesday kind of outfit. It’s the middle day of the week, and I almost always hit the snooze at least 4 times…which means that is 36 minutes less to make coffee, breakfast, chose an outfit, make-up, hair, feed the puppies, let the puppies outside, pray, journal, read scripture, take pictures…and the list goes on. I am a morning person, so that does help a little bit…just not on Wednesdays. Most of my Wardrobe Wednesdays are written a week or so in advance, and then scheduled accordingly. Not so much today. Today is a Wednesday, in the true meaning, and all the matters, that come to reality on a Wednesday.
This outfit is good for Wednesdays. It is very comfortable and looks clean with the white and dark contrast. Also, it is really comfortable. With those things in mind, this skirt and top are absolutely comfortable. This outfit is a Wednesday kind of outfit.
The skirt is a jersey/tee shirt material. It is a charcoal gray with a simple tribal like design. The top of the skirt folds down like a pair of yoga pants…praise Jesus. I purchased this skirt on clearance at Target, for about $10. Since I am a petite height, I wear the skirt pretty high on my waist to avoid it dragging the ground when I walk. This also creates a tiny waist line, with the top of the skirt drawing into the smallest part of my waist.
The top tee shirt has a sheer top level, with a cotton stretch bottom. This length of this shirt is rather short, you could call it a longer crop. The crop works with the skirt so that I am not creating any material lines, aka seeing the hem line of the shirt through the skirt…like underwear lines. Since the top is white, and parts of it are sheer I always wear a tank top underneath. I like this specific tank because it has very dulled-fine lines of tan stripes, which mimics a hint of the brown in the skirt. It also gives a little more depth to the top without being too busy. You can barely see the stripes, but just enough to make an impact. It makes me smile. The white top is from Old Navy, I have no recollection of the price or when I purchased it. The tank top is from Banana Republic petite (2005). I have actually cut the bottom of it to a crop, it has seen better days. I do not wear the tank by itself, so it can hide its stains and jagged crop just fine.
This necklace is a recent purchase. It came with a pair of gold round earrings on clearance for $11 at Scheels. I am surprised that I like the necklace as much as I do. With the sharp triangular shapes it has a rather edgy feel, but the shine of the gold brings the edgy look to a more simple and classic design. This necklace wears well with tee shirts and dresses, very versatile. I am really thankful for it, it has been my go-to piece since I bought it.
The sandals are from our local Farm and Home Supply store. I love this store! They were $9. Sure, they are not going to last very long, and they are obviously knockoff Birkenstock Arizona style sandals. The caramel color brown is one of my favorites, and they are easy to slip on…perfect for a Wednesday. They make any outfit look less ‘dressy’, and sometimes I am wanting that exact style. Like today for example, because it is Wednesday.
Also, I hear that it is National Dog Day. Dear Kingy, I love your cute big face and slobbery jaws. Dear Sorepants, your cuddliness and grandpa attitude makes me so happy that you are my dog. If you want to see a picture of my husband and I's puppers, click the About link at the top of this page.
