How is it that a person who loves clothes as much as I do cannot put an outfit together? Is it that I do not know how to dress my body type or do I just excel in What NOT to Wear? I find it interesting that things look fine when I put everything together. It is after seeing the photos I begin to second guess what I considered cute at the time.
A voice inside me suggested that I switch things up and use Cladwell / Stylebook to pick my outfits for one week (7 days). Hey, it cannot be any worse. Trust me, I am laughing that I actually looked like this.
Week 8 is ending today… Friday!!! Applications get ready and suggest some flattering outfits!
Week 7 lead into a three day weekend… thank you, Presidents! Having that extra day off from work is really nice and something I look forward too.
Paid a visit to Sur La Tab and attended their cooking class; Dutch Oven. Loved the chef who taught the class, her personality was all Duarte and had me laughing because she was so sarcastic.
Monday was the SAVER’ents Day celebration, which had Geoff and I driving up to the Vacaville location where we had a chance to meet-up with Best Friend Matt. Drove back home and stopped at the Danville store and picked up a couple black belts. That location was crowded and a lot of stuff cleared out. Last year we managed to hit three stores. That was fun because we kept running into the same people who were also SAVERS hopping!
(ignore the 1st outfit that I wore the Saturday before, I got mixed up when cropping photos)
Not too thrilled with this weeks choices. It seems off and boring. However, I do my Valentines Day outfit. Erin (daughter) made a comment on Instagram asking if I purchased the top from the Cheshire Cat!
What an amazing week. I cannot believe it is already February. It has been nice getting out of the house. Last weekend was Super Bowl and this weekend was cards; so much fun. I had a great dinner at Pedro’s with good friends, and the office was so quiet… a lot of our team is in South Korea at the Olympics!
I planned a trip out to Folsom to see my parents but the 2hr drive I expected turned into a 5hr drive. Given that I was only in Fairfield with two hours of a drive left, I decided to cancel my trip and head back home. Hopefully I will be able to make it back up to see my folks soon.

I like this top. It is supposed to tie in the front but I decided to tuck it in.
Tuesday, February 6
Cladwell outfit selection…boring.
Wednesday, February 7
I did not like this outfit. The painted pants are not flattering and way too tight.
Thursday, February 8
These are my favorite jeans. These are my go-to jeans, more than the True Religions I thought were the bomb.
Saturday, February 10
January is over and done. The Bay Are has started the month of February with amazingly warm weather, while inside the office the temperature is 30 below zero.
Cladwell. I admit that refer to the app before I get ready for bed. I use the look ahead one day option when the current options do not get my heart pumping. The choices Cladwell offers are… blaaaahhh. There is something about the selections that I do not “feel” like wearing.
Another ideas I had was to refer back to my saved Pinterest pins. That provided a couple options. Why is it so hard shopping from my closet?
This is what I wore week 5:

I have been enjoying my new Adidas. I purchased these from DSW during a sale promotion. DSW was out of the black and gold but after digging, I found the silver. Very comfortable shoe.

Intel had an amazing 4th quarter and with my year-end bonus, I decided to treat myself to a Gucci belt. The pants are peach cargos. I like the pants but they stretch out a lot… which is why I wore the belt.
Tuesday, January 31
I see a lot of lookbooks that match up animal printed blouses with all sorts of sweaters and that was my inspiration for Wednesday.
Thursday, February 1
Repeating another lookbook that swapped out an animal printed blouse for checked. The gray t-shirt is long enough to wear over leggings and was not the best choice to pair with jeans, however, I liked the top with the blouse.
Friday, February 2
I do not know what I was thinking. Maybe that I wanted to wear these pink loafers, or if I could get away with wearing a bright color with camouflage. For your information, I watched a YouTube video with instructions on how to tuck in a blouse, shirt, and sweater. What did I do??? I ended up fixing the tuck around 3PM.
