What I Wore Wednesday

Aloha from snowy Dayton! It's hard to believe we've been in Ohio for a whole month now. We're still adjusting to this new place -- which is quite different from Hawaii! -- but I think once we finally get moved into our new home we'll be a whole lot happier.

Though I most definitely miss my flip-flops and tanks tops, it's been fun to play around with my wardrobe and create some new *winter* outfits from new purchases, clothes I wore regularly in Hawaii and old sweaters I'd had shoved away for the past several years.

As always, I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy to share my outfits. Happy Wednesday!

 Coral and turquoise was one of my most often-worn color combos when I was dressing for summer every day in Hawaii. When I saw this 3/4-sleeve coral jersey-knit cardigan I knew I had to snag it!

 I'm not sure how I feel about these gray boots. I bought them for $5 at Old Navy last spring, before we even knew if we'd be moving to a cold place. I was excited to finally get to wear them, but then I had a hard time matching them up with an outfit. Gray should be no different than any other neutral, but I just felt everything I tried them (including this) with would look better with my brown boots. Maybe it's just that I'm not used to seeing gray when I look at my feet?

 This lovely-colored hooded American Eagle sweater is one that had been boxed up while we were in Hawaii. I'm sure it's glad to finally see the light of day again!

Also, I got a long-overdue haircut and highlights this week! I last had my hair done in September, before Jarrod got back from Afghanistan, and it was definitely time! I only got a trim, since Jarrod has been begging me to try growing my hair out. We'll see... I'm not sure the best time to attempt that is heading into a hot, humid Ohio summer!

And this sweater is one of my new purchases -- I got it on my shopping spree at the Banana Republic Outlet before we left Hawaii. I love the button details on the shoulders!

  1. I have this same plaid Old Navy top, I love it's bright colors. I always pair mine with neutrals, but it's really fun how you wore it with a bright cardi!
