July Wrap Up: What I Wore

31 Jul

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. This month I basically stuck with a dress + cardigan combo. Not groundbreaking at all, but it works for a muggy-hot July.

Here are all my July looks:

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

One Winner – Row 3, Outfit 1
If I had to pick an outfit to wear when I randomly ran into that cool kid from high school, I’d totally choose this dress/belt/sweater combo. I just felt like it was both comfortable and super flattering. The dress was a Boden online purchase a few months ago (it’s the Willa Jersey dress and currently on sale), the gold belt is from Old Navy and has been getting a ton of wear lately, and the sweater is a super old one from Loft.

One Loser – Row 4, Outfit 1
I want to like this dress, I really do. It’s the Rosamund Jersey dress and I picked it up at the Boden Outlet store for a steal. However, I’ve worn it twice and both times just felt kind of frumpy in it. I’m leaning towards listing this one for sale on Poshmark or eBay.

One That Needs Work – Row 1, Outfit 2
While I love the pattern and fabric on this Rivera dress, the length really bothers me. I decided I’m going to hem it to knee-length and also put a few stitches in up top to keep the wrap from blousing open. Now I just need to do it and not let it sit on my sewing table until winter…

New in Rotation for July:
Rivera dress, Boden Outlet (from this post), currently on sale – row 1, outfit 2

That’s it. Everything else I wore this month has been repeated in my wardrobe many times before!

What do you think – should I get rid of the Rosemund jersey dress? Do you agree that I should chop the Riveria dress to knee-length?

    I’ve never commented before and I can’t even remember how I found your blog a few years ago, but I really enjoy reading. We have a similar body type/size and I really appreciate your fashion posts.

    All that to say, if you decide to sell the Rosamund Jersey Dress, will you let me know. I’ve loved it since I first saw it here and would love to take it off your hands since the green is sold out on Boden’s website. We wear the same size in Boden! Thanks again!
