What I Wore Wednesday.....

I have so been looking forward to cooler weather so I can break out some different clothes!  Particularly since last week when Mom and I went out to Kohl's and I scored an awesome pair of brown boots (which were on sale and I had a 30% off coupon on top of that)......

Well, the mornings have been chilly enough,but the afternoons quickly warm up.  I've resorted to blending clothes from one season to the next.  You know - lighter weight top so I don't sweat to death, paired with skinny jeans and boots.  This way, all that sweats is my feet, right?

This is what I wore last night to meet with the ladies in the book club for dinner.

Lightweight 3/4 length shirt, blue & green print,over a cool cami - Apt. 9 from Kohl's
Stretchy skinny jeans - Jennifer Lopez at Kohl's (key word being "stretchy")
Boots - Apt. 9 from Kohl's
Earrings and bracelet - James Avery 
(oh, wait, you can't even see the earrings - in either of these shots - but, trust me, they're pretty!)
Watch - Fossil you see a pattern with Kohl's developing here!  Maybe I should buy some of their stock?

 Okay, so y'all chime in and tell me......

Which "selfie" works best???  Should I take one of those shots where I hold the camera in front of my face (perhaps in an effort to convince everyone I am a serious photographer), or do I go with the camera down lower as I struggle to compose my face while feeling like a dork in front of the mirror????

At any rate, this was comfortable for a casual dinner.  The lighter weight on top seemed to kind of balance out the boots on bottom.  Do you have any tricks to share on balancing the change of seasons in the wardrobe department?  If you do, please share!!!

Keeping it real.....


  1. Cute boots! Iowa has proved to be very frustrating weather-wise. We will have a week with highs in the 50s and 60s, and then this week it's all 70s. I'm constantly back and forth. I went ahead and rotated my fall and winter clothes to the front of my closet in hopes that it will work some magic and settle the weather on one season.

    1. Hey, we would take the 70's, Amber! Before you know it, you will be knee deep in snow.....for about 3 months! I am sure it is going to be a huge adjustment for y'all. So, enjoy these mild days, my dear!


THANK YOU for stopping by for a little visit on the Porch! I absolutely LOVE comments, so please leave a note and let me know what you're thinking.
