Wednesday's Wardrobe: Easy-Peasy

Sometimes even us fashion-obsessed gals have a hard time pulling together inspired looks on a daily basis.  It's been a hectic week  and when the going gets busy, the outfits get simple.  I rely on tried and true pieces to build simple ensembles so I can get out the door quickly and on with my day.  Here are a few easy-peasy looks from the past week:

I wore this to work on my casual day last week.  I bought this shirt Thanksgiving weekend in Raleigh years ago at the most fantastic Dillards I've ever stepped foot in.  I love the lace and sweet buttons down the front, as it feels sort of country-inspired.  I wore it with boot cut jeans and my slowly but surely being broken in Frye loafers.
Shirt - Dillards, Tank/Jeans - Old Navy, Shoes - Frye via Bloomingdales, Necklace - Bridesmaid gift, Bracelets - Filene's Basement

I went to an outdoor craft fair over the weekend.  It was going to be very chilly so I layered on a cardigan and a felted hat to keep my wet head warm. (I refuse to dry/diffuse my hair until it gets below freezing...didn't I just tell you how lazy I am last post?)  Despite my layers and my cape! I still froze my bippy off but had a lot of fun at the fair.
Cardigan/Belt-Marmalade in San Francisco, Printed top/Jeans - Ann Taylor Loft, Shoes - DSW, Hat - TJ Maxx, Bag - Colorado, Flower Pin - Forever 21

Post half-marathon I did NOT want to go to work on Monday because I was tired and everything hurt.  A t-shirt +scarf+ flowy skirt+comfy flats = work appropriate sweats. Colored tights were my attempt at looking somewhat put together.
Tee - Ann Taylor Loft, Skirt - Old Navy, Tights - Gift, Shoes - Gap, Bag - Hype, gift, Scarf - Filene's Basement, Bracelets - Target

I'm still feeling a bit drained from the weekend so I relied on another easy look for work today.  Shirt dress, boots and a head scarf, easy as 1, 2, 3 items and out the door.
Shirt dress - Marshalls, Boots - Liz Claiborne via DSW, Scarf - Mom's, Belt - Diesel,  Necklace - Gift

For everyone celebrating on Thursday, I wish you a healthy and happy Thanksgiving full of delicious eats and wonderful moments with family and friends.  I am thankful for many things this year including you sweet, thoughtful readers who make sharing a little bit of my life that much more fun and exciting! All the best; I hope to post a holiday wish list on Friday if I come out of my tryptophan-induced coma in time.

I am so lazy about my hair too. I just mousse it and go most of the time. I love lace top and heeled loafers together. SO sweet. And those boots with that shirt dress? Beautiful!

Loving your scarf, purple tights and glitter shoes. They are so much fun and CHEERY! And I super love that safari dress and accessories that go with it. Happy Thanksgiving to you Cara!

All of these looks are so cute, it's hard to pick a favorite. The thing we love about you though, is you always add something interesting to your outfits. It could be a scarf, fun tights, or some awesome jewelry! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving :)

OMG - loving all these styles. They look great on you. The orange bag is beautiful. Have a great thanksgiving.

Anna said...

I've always wanted to get a shirt dress and I've scoured my Marshalls COUNTLESS times but alas - never had luck. What brand is it by? I also really like your orange/cognac bag (kind of hard not to - it's my favorite color).

Have a great Thanksgiving!

So much outfit awesomeness I don't know where to begin! I love the white lacy top and the brightly coloured craft outfit. Haha I'm like you-I don't blow dry my hair until it starts to frost together in the cold like hair icicles!

Thanks for your sweet comment on my shearling-style boots. It's hard to live in a cold climate and find stylish footwear for winter, so those are a hit! I LOVE your craft hair outfit - the bright colours, the print and that big Carrie Bradshaw-esque flower! And I've been looking for a hat like that - the brim is the perfect width.

Love the colorful, layered floral and mustard outfit. Very pretty, Cara! And for the opposite reason, the simple but well accessorized shirt dress look is also a stand out. Happy belated Thanksgiving!

Samantha said...

I LOVE your fair outfit! It's so cute - the hat, the colors, your purse, and your smile! It's perfect for the fair! Those are gorgeous Liz Claiborne boots! And way to go on running a half-marathon! You're amazing!
