Operation: Get Out of Yoga Pants (Week 4)





It's week four!  I can't believe it!  I get to show you this week what I was supposed to show you last week.  I'm really starting to dig deep in my wardrobe and pull out things that I have purchased, but haven't had the guts to wear.  I'm also starting to notice some things I am missing in my wardrobe.  I can say that when I put this outfit on this morning, I immediately started thinking about how I could wear this other times of the year if I only had such and such to go with it.

That's a huge change from the way I used to think.

Before I show you this weeks outfit, I want to say something:  I don't wear prints on my person usually.  A scarf or shoes are one thing.  To actually wear a print on my body is a huge deal for me.

 So, for this outfit, I took a baby step out of my comfort zone.

(And I apologize for the quality on one of the photos.  I wasn't quite close enough to the camera and when I edited the photo, it got a little grainy on me.) 


Seeing Red

Sunglasses: Coach (These were purchased at a Coach Outlet a couple of years ago.)
Cardigan: Old Navy (exact)
Shirt: Old Navy (exact)
Jeggings: Wal-Mart (similar)
Shoes: Target (Currently unavailable online.)

Here's what I think is missing from today's outfit:


I put the outfit on and immediately thought, "I need one of those red bubble necklaces.  I'm looking a little plain up top." I don't hardly have any fun jewelry anymore. I used to, but a lot of it has been broken or misplaced the last couple of years.  Dear Santa....

I did get another idea for an outfit involving this shirt when it gets warmer.  I don't have all the pieces I need, but it won't be hard to acquire them before spring rolls around.  I also hope stripes are still "in" when spring rolls around.  

What have you done recently out of your comfort zone?

  5. I think the bauble necklace would be perfect with that outfit! I recently tried wearing lace leggings and layered lots of pieces that already exist in my closet to create a new look.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Gracielle! I think the bauble necklace would really complete the outfit. I need to order some in various colors and styles. I love those necklaces! They are so fun! Congrats on the lace leggings! I've been seeing them around Pinterest and blog land and I love them, but I am not sure how they would look on me.

  8. Cute idea! I'm guilty of wearing yoga pants a little too often but I just don't have energy chasing after a 2 and 1 year old and being 7 months pregnant!
