Blog Challenge – Day 14: What I Wore Today

Well, I’m glad this topic fell on today because I just happen to be wearing one of my favorite outfits.

It being casual Friday, I wore my favorite dark-blue jeans I bought at Maurice’s. They’re high-waisted bell-bottoms with deep pockets that I adore (the pockets, that is, though I do like the pants as a whole). In fact, they were part of my Halloween costume last year:

Underneath I wore leggings, which have been a must-have here as of late.

Up top, I wore an olive-green three-quarter sleeved tunic from TJ Maxx. It’s one of my favorite tops because it’s flowy, thus giving the illusion that I’ve lost weight.

Over the shirt I wore a lovely and vivid orange scarf with an old-fashioned intricate design that’d you’d expect to see on an expensive rug. I bought it at Target.

[If my selfies of said tunic and scarf had turned out, you would have seen one here.]

Though I wore my ubiquitous black sneakers to and from work, at the office I slid into my maroon dress flats from DSW (the only shoes I’ve ever bought there, and only because they were on clearance). They’re shiny and give you that satisfying “click” with every step without being high heels. Each shoe sports a silver belt buckle over the toes. When I wore them to my cousin’s karaoke birthday extravaganza, she laughed because I sang “All that Jazz” from the musical Chicago, which contains the lyrics “wear your buckle shoes.” Probably not what the lyricist intended, but its irony was appreciated nonetheless.

On my ears (or I guess “through my ears”? That doesn’t quite sound right, though.), I wore faux-pearl studs. At least, I assume they’re faux. I haven’t bothered to bite them.

Additionally, as I waited for buses throughout the day, I wore various other jackets and coats, plus gloves and an aqua-green merino knit cap I found at an outlet store in town (score!). But those items are less exciting so these are all the words I’m going to give them.

Lastly, but most importantly at the moment, are my wool socks, which I got for a steal during last Black Friday’s sale at Work, Sports and Outdoors. Never underestimate the warmth of wool socks.
