WIW: a few days of keeping it real

I try to take a daily pic, even if I don't post it.  In reality, I probably succeed in taking a pic about half of the days.
Here's some from the past week (and today)
#1 today: the first jeans I found, gray heathered short-sleeved sweater with teal cocoon cardigan.
#2 yesterday: white jeans with white shirt under an oatmeal pullover.  I think I looked this loopy all day long - many people asked me if I was okay (I spent Saturday working in too much dust and fiberglass insulation, so it took a bit to recover).
#3 last week sometime - a peacock sheer blouse and black bootcuts.
#4 also last week - gray jeans and a vintage statement top.  I think if this top is going to stay I have to make the neck bigger.  That crew neck is annoyingly small.
#5 last Sunday - pleated skirt and black blouse - partially tucked.  Later in the day I changed to #6 (jeans with the same top).

None of these strike me as very special - but they're what I'm wearing these days, I guess :)
All comments and suggestions are welcome!

Off to see what you all area wearing for real :)

    All very nice fall looks! I like the gray cowl neck sweater and teal blouse on you especially. You've really nailed the relaxed fluid look in all of these!

    You are doing great, and these are super outfits for your lifestyle, Amy. I really like your longer hair. xo

    Amy, you are so cute! All of your outfits look really good.

    Thanks Angie for commenting on my hair - I'm still kind of conflicted over it - it feels frumpy to me.  But I also don't want to chop it off too short, because I remember how much effort it was to always be cutting it :)  It's due for a trim, and I think I'll try for something a bit more dramatic.

    #1, #3 and #6 are my favorites here.  I really like your hair.   I have problems getting photos on weekends so have more work outfits than casual outfits photographed.  Also, I frequently come home from work and change like you did between #5 and #6 and I rarely get those photos.

    I really like your WIWs!! I agree, your hair is looking good! I especially like the blouse tucked over your teal skirt. Slouchy perfection. In fact, I love the slouchy vibe of all of your outfits.

    Love 2, 5 and 6!  I always enjoy your WIWs and watching your style journey.

    3 stands out to me as far as the colours looking so beautiful on you! And I admire you getting pics done even every other day; I forgot 3 days in a row last week & just had to recreate the outfits this afternoon (since I was doing a little personal challenge). And I have lots of free time! Just difficult to remember to get it done.

    2, 5, and 6 are really great outfits on you, Amy. I love the cohesion of #2. And the black top looks very rich, somehow, and luminous. 

    I hear you on the photos. I aim for every day but probably make about half as well.

    I agree, #2 looks really great on you.

  • kellygirl replied 5 years ago

    Great outfits! 1, 2 and 6 are my faves. Your hair is really growing. I love the longer length!

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    Agree that despite being loopy #2 is a great outfit. I also especially like #3 and #6. And your hair longer looks great. Don't see frumpy, you are too vibrant to look frumpy Amy.

  • Neel replied 5 years ago

    How adorable are you in 5! I love those pumps on you.

    #2 is a super flattering color palette on you IMO. With the hairstyle in 5, I think you will be ready to rock :). Great set of outfits for your real life (which I know is way more fun, interesting and harder than mine!)

    I love #2 & #3 & the shoes in #5 are fab. Looking good Amy.
