August Wrap Up: What I Wore

It’s time for my monthly wrap up where I show you the outfits I wore throughout the month.  My reasoning behind doing the wrap up is that whenever I check out other bloggers wrap ups, I’m always inspired by the different ways they style the same items over and over again. So, hopefully I can help someone else out of a wardrobe rut!

I typically work from home two days a week (Monday and Friday), so each week will usually only have three work outfits. I re-wore a bunch of stuff in my wardrobe and worked in some new thrifted items as well.

Here are all my August looks:

I put little hearts next to my most popular outfits according to my Instagram friends. I appreciate all the love!

One Winner – Row 1, Outfit 2
I threw together this outfit for a day of errands and I love how it all came together. I will definitely be wearing this and variations of this outfit throughout the fall! Both the tank top and the jeans were scores from one of the summer Clear the Rack sales at Nordstrom Rack. The linen top was marked down to $5 and the jeans/jeggings were just $23! The cardigan was a J.Crew outlet purchase earlier in the year and the sandals are Lucky Brand.

One Loser – Row 4, Outfit 3
Last month I let go of a dress that I wanted to love, but just didn’t. I like the green and white patterned Boden dress from row 4, outfit 3… but I think I’m going to demote it to just weekend wearing. It just seems a bit too casual for a workday, even when paired with a cardigan.

Packing Away for Next Summer – Row 3, outfit 2
I picked up this yellow Boden dress on super clearance for $36 and knew that I’d only get a wear or two out of it before the end of summer. This one is going to get packed away so that I can rediscover it when it starts getting warm next May.

New in Rotation for August:
Democracy released hem skinny jeans (no longer available) – row 1, outfit 1
Bobeau short wrap skirt (currently on clearance for $20)– row 1, outfit 2
Gray thrifted cardigan (from this post for $6) – row 1, outfit 2 and 3; row 2, outfit 2; row 3, outfit 2, row 4, outfit 1 and 3
Huarache sandals (thrifted in this post for $8) – row 2, outfit 1
Patterned jersey skirt (thrifted in this post for $5) row 2, outfit 3
Patterned faux wrap dress (thrifted in this post for $13) – row 3, outfit 1
Boden Jemma jersey dress (currently on clearance for $36) – row 3, outfit 2
Lilly Pulitzer wrap dress (thrifted in this post for $5) – row 3, outfit 3

That’s it. Lots of new thrifted/super clearance items. Everything else I wore this month has been repeated in my wardrobe many times before!
