Too Warm for January-WIWW

It has been 75+ degrees around here making for some crazy outfit choices. It’s not quite cold, not quite hot. Everything in me is saying I should be putting on sweaters and extra layers. This past weekend it was really warm so I had on shorts and flips but it got sort of chilly in the house so I threw on my Uggs. (Not very picture worthy.) I don’t really want to wear my spring/ summer attire yet, those clothes are out about 8 months of the year. The weather however, is saying otherwise.

But here’s what I did capture.

Sunday Church.

And I wore my Jeanne Oliver leather cuff, along with a hair band on my wrist of course. IMG_7290

Details:

Top: Nordstrom

Jeans: Gap

Boots: Nordstrom

Of course here’s what a daily outfit looks like.

Shirt: F21

Tank: Old Navy

Jeans: Joes

Flips: Rainbows

Jeans and flips in January? I still can’t get over it. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for colder weather at the end of this month, as there is not much snow without it.

And on a different note, a hole broke through  on the knees of two pairs of my jeans this past week, one of which were my favorite pair of Citizens.  They were from the year Bogie was born so I guess it was about time they gave out, seeing as he’ll be 4 in two months.  I’ll be on the lookout for a new pair of great all around jeans that can stand up to the wear and tear of a mom to three boys. Any ideas?

What’s your favorite brand and fit? 

I’m linking up with The Pleated Poppy.

Hi Lady of the House! I think that is such a cute header and new blog name.

I especially love your sweater from Nordstrom - it's adorable. I promised myself after I lose 5 more pounds I will buy myself a pair of Joes. Could be a while. ;)

I participated in my first ever WIWW and it's quite stressful putting yourself out there like that. Anyway...have a great Wednesday.

I can so relate. we are back into the high 70s here too. I have more shorts and t-shirts than anything else in my wardrobe. that's what happens when you live in a warm climate (o:

Love that top you wore to church! You look so cute in both outfits and I shouldn't be complaining but I'm glad we are finally getting a little cooler weather in CA today. I'm not ready for warm weather, besides I have all new winter clothes from Christmas I've been wanting to wear ;)
