What I Wore – August 2017

Yeah, I made it through August and kids are finally back in school – woohoo! I always have such mixed feelings when Summer comes to an end but yet I’m always relieved when the kids start back in school and the routines take over. This year, is particularly exciting for me because my youngest started Kindergarten and for the first time, I have 2 kids in the same school! #lifechanging

I’m actually going to admit that for once, the month of August did not go by fast. Whether that is a good or bad thing remains to be seen but I’m pretty sure my memories of this last month of Summer will be positive. Generally, my kids were still in camp so I know that helped. We had my older daughter’s birthday and party, celebrated my dad’s birthday and then actually went away for 2 days for a short family vacation, just the 4 of us. We went back to this hotel that I love for how kid friendly it is. The last time we went to this hotel my youngest was almost 1, so about 5 years ago. What a difference it makes once the kids are 9 and 6, let me just say!

Anyway, on to the outfit portion of this post. Ha!

Everyday Outfits

Outfit #1

Gap tank, Hudson shorts, Jack Rogers shoes

Gap burnout tank (I actually got this back in April and have gotten a lot of use out it, it is light weight so really perfect for some of those really hot Summer days) and will transition well in to Fall| Hudson shortsJack Rogers sandals | Bracelet | Necklace

Outfit #2

ATM tee Tory Burch sandal

ATM tee (so soft!) | Shorts – my are old from Gap, try these J. Brand for a higher end version or these by Blanknyc for a lower price| Sandals

Outfit #3

Most of this outfit is older but these navy shorts are the J.Crew boardwalk pull on short – 3″. I first got a pair from the regular store in a jacquard print a few years ago and then I filled out a little and had to get a new pair . I got these last year and they are still available!! I still love them because they’re easy to pull on, very comfortable, and wear well. They even have a 5″ version of them now. They are similar to the pair by Madewell I got this Summer in black but a different material. Tank is by Stateside and the sandals are little girls Sam Edelman – both are from last year.

Psst! Did you  notice I finally got a new phone case and pop socket?! Part of my birthday presents! 🙂 ‘

Outfit #4

Madewell tee hudson shorts adidas stan smith

Madewell tee – the infamous whisper cotton one that everyone loves, including me, ha! I also have it in black | Shorts | Shoes (really like the newer version with blue)

This day was slightly cooler for August so I broke out the sneakers and a tee. Honestly, I don’t love how my legs look in these shoes in shorts but whatever. I believe it was raining this day and how hard is it to figure out what shoes to wear on a rainy summer day, right?!

Outfit #5


Shoes | Tee (from the Spring) | Jeans – a favorite by Blanknyc, try these for similar

Meet a friend at the mall for lunch on another rainy day. This day must have been cooler, too, for me to wear jeans in August!

Outfit #6

Top – old Banana Republic | Necklace – Madewell from last Winter, a part of a trio | Pants – old from Athleta, newer version here (so thin and light!) | Shoes

Another cool August day! This was quite welcome from the heat I have to say. Gave me a chance to try out the shoes since I’d only gotten them a week or so beforehand. They’re a new favorite. ?

Outfit #7

BP tee

BP Tee (on sale!) – Be careful when washing, the first time it shrank and was able to get it again (Have to love Nordstrom!) | Leggings

Wore this the last day of camp for my younger daughter where we were invited to watch their little dance performances. This day was, thankfully, was not as hot as the one when they did this in July. That time it was sweltering!

Spiritual Gangster, Hudson

Tank  – Similar| Shorts

My older daughter had her birthday party at the house with water games so I went for a really casual look this day. And no, my husband and I didn’t coordinate our tops. ?

Evening Outfits

Outfit #1

Abbeline tank hudson A gold e marc fisher

Abbeline tank (see my post here about it from South Moon Under) | Shoes (You think I wore these enough this Summer??) | Jeans are old A Gold E – I would have worn my new Hudson pair but they weren’t the right length with these shoes, or my new AG pair would have worked but they were at the tailor.

This was for my belated birthday dinner!

Outfit #2

Rebecca Minkoff

Purse – This is a suede Rebecca Minkoff ‘Love Crossbody Purse’ that was a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This purple/lavendar color seems to be no where else anymore so try this color instead | Tank | Jeans

This was for a casual BBQ one Saturday night

Outfit #3

Old Navy dress

 Dress – Similar (on sale!) | Shoes | Necklace – Old Kendra Scott,  loving this one

My dad’s bday dinner – pretty simple

Outfit #4

Tank (I ended up tucking the tank in a bit before we left, it just looked better) | Jeans | Shoes – same as above

Casual dinner on vacation. See the floats in the background, best part of the hotel for my kids is that they allow floats in the pool, unlike our regular pool.

Outfit #5

Dress – AGAIN! Wore it with different jewelry this time – last time I did rose gold, this time I went for regular gold to change things up| Same shoes as before, too | Jean jacket

2nd night of vacation dinner. By the way, I didn’t even realize my daughter was wearing her Adidas slides in the picture. I didn’t let her wear them to dinner, I’m not THAT laid back, but this picture was taken after dinner so she had changed them and I didn’t even notice. Ha!

So, that’s a wrap on August’s What I Wore. We’ll see if September will turn out some good outfits to share. Sometimes it all depends on the weather and what I’m up to.

Happy shopping!
