WIW 6/28-7/2: Two work and two MOTG outfits

Feel free to skip to the pics if this is too much writing!

1. To work on Thursday. I normally wear this leather and tweed skirt with my favorite mustard paisley blouse as part of my signature outfit (see profile pic), but I thought I'd change things up and wear it with my bee blouse instead. Dark red bag and T strap shoes provide just enough color to keep it "me". With the pussy bow blouse and pencil skirt I felt very "1940's secretary" in this outfit (which is one of my favorite fashion personas!).

Lafayette 148 tweed pencil skirt with leather band
Clarks red T strap pumps
Fossil red executive tote

2. Later that day after work we took the kids to the playground so I changed into a MOTG outfit. This one is my interpretation of my mom's Christmas gifts from Forever21 (http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....xmas-gifts)--I bought similar pieces that fit me better and were more appropriate for my age. Much more glitter and sparkle than I usually wear, but it was fun to channel my mom for a bit. Not entirely sure about the tight tank over leggings look (even with the cardigan on top), but it was comfy to wear! Should I try a belt next time to break up the top and bottom or is it better as a column of black?

Calvin Klein sparkly tank
Macy's black leggings
Stuart Weitzman animal print ballet flats

3. What I wore on Saturday when we took the kids out to practice bike riding. Again, I can't help wearing white denim for MOTG even though it's totally impractical--my poor hems are getting permanently grey now! But as I said in Angie's blog post, who cares--we're having fun with the kids!

Paige Hidden Hills white bootcut jeans
Ugg Hazel sandals
Kate Spade yellow and orange straw hat from 6pm

4-5. What I wore today to work--my safari dress with leopard necklace and Fossil buckle pumps and brown leather bag. This doubled as a MOTG outfit because I had a couple hours in the afternoon since I got off a little early today, but had to go back for a work meeting in the evening. So the nanny brought the kids to the park and I ended up playing with them for a little bit.

Fossil buckle pumps in cognac

    these are all great outfits. I am a huge fan of safari so the last ones make my heart sing. But that photo 2 is soooo nice. You look great in that black!

    I also loved 3 because you listened to your heart and wore what you feel good in. I like that you are the most stylish MOTG around!

    You are the best looking MOTG! I love these outfits, #1 is so *you* (elegant, ladylike, fun), #2 gorgeous draping and fun sparkling (great stylish-grandma-vibe, this is all through positive!), #3 bright and crisp (I envy your white denim guts!) and #4 is perfect as work-to-play outfit! I need a safari dress like that!! I saw several last spring, but non this year. When did you get yours?

    Great work & MOTG outfits plus bobus shots.

  • krishnidoux replied 7 years ago

    So chic! #3 is simply fabulous.

  • ManidipaM replied 7 years ago

    ADORE #1 --- so very quintessentially Ladylike Natalie! However, am absolutely charmed by the carefree white jeans and matching top and hat of #3.

    #2 is a hard one to pull off --- I don't think I'd have dared! --- but you really make it work with that cardigan.

    And the safari dress is SUPER. So versatile to go from work to playground and back to meeting again --- and not look the least bit out of place at either! That taupe's a great neutral for you, by the way, along with cognac.

    Love the MOTG outfits!! I love 2 and 3 for casual days, white jeans look great on you! Very chic with the kiddos!!

  • qfbrenda replied 7 years ago

    You look great! I would choose pants other than leggings in #2, but other than that I love your week! The striped cardigan is a great cozy find.

    Love your safari dress Natalie! What a great look on you.

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    WOW at #2! I love the flowly, drapey neutrals on you!

    Also a fan of #4 - Safari Mama keeping those wild animals in line. :D
