What I wore on my East Coast Adventure

It’s Wednesday, so why not grab some pics of my outfits on my trip and share ‘em?  Even though you will likely see them in the coming weeks, it’s fun to link up to The Pleated Poppy’s What I Wore Wednesday series.  The night before my trip, I posted on facebook how agonizing it is for me to plan clothing for a trip. I generally like to get a new outfit (or two) for such adventures, and with my current weight loss, it was out of necessity to get a bunch of new outfits.  I think I agonize over clothing because I want it to be diverse enough from picture to picture, and also if I’m with the same people to diversivy for their sake (I hope this doesn’t make me sound too shallow).  I like clothes, and I have fun putting colors together, and I don’t ever want to be pinne down to a certain “style” I like to change things up. From boots to converse, I like to shake things up. Since we refused to pay the extra $25 to check on a bag, I packed all of my clothes into a carry on rolling bag, so I really had to plan.  Bringing my boots was my big packing splurge, but I love them, so I’m happy they made the cut;)

I didn’t stand at my front door (as usual) for these, so I did a little cropping in some. Below is a picture in the hotel bathroom my first day.

LOVE the orange/white loose boxy t-shirt. Not sure what the style is, but I love it.  I got it at Forever 21 recently. This first day was our chilliest day. I brought my favorite green trench coat from Charlotte Russe about 5 years ago. New skinny jeans from Old Navy and boots from DSW. This might be my favorite overall in looks and comfort. Gold key necklace and gold hoops to go with.  Funny how both shots are a profile of me laughing…

The next day was a Sunday, so we went to church in the morning, and I kept my skirt on. Gray maxi skirt from Target. Love my silver flats, from Forever 21 last year. Scarf from my local HEB grocery store ($7;) Belt, Charming Charlie’s with pearl studs and bracelts. Not loving my pink shades here, but it’s all I had. I wish I liked how aviators felt on me.  Can’t stand the nubbins on my nose.

Hubby took this (below) with his phone before my shoot in Philly. Polka dot shirt from Forever 21. Pink shoes, quite old from DOTS. Camera bag from Jo Totes.

This was a major walking day (below) so I brought my hot pink walking shoes (can you tell I love this shade yet?) Old Navy striped shirt and pink necklace from an etsy shop I can’t recall because I have so many from several different shops. I think Little Miss Momma’s.

Horrible close up on my pink tenny runners.


Not such a great “full sun” shot…squinting and shadows on the face. Note to (the reader’s) self–don’t do this if you have any control.

I really loved this green shirt I wore on the last day of our trip. Just got it from the Gap Outlet, I loved the button role sleeve on the side, and the detail on the neckline. Close up below of that detail. Paired with my polka headband that I think I got at TArget and my 2 year old Payless cozy flats.
