What I Wore Wednesday

What Grace Wore:

I wore this to church on Palm Sunday. The white denim jacket is by apostrophe [Sears,] worn with Jockey brand nylon/lycra camisole worn under tee-shirt, floral A-line skirt by Rafaella – all bought at thrift stores.  Yellow v-neck tee from Talbot’s. Green fabric purse by Izod, white/silver dangle earrings, black patent criss-cross sandals by Life Stride bought for my wedding rehearsal in…1996!

[In retrospect, I should have worn a bold necklace and simpler earrings.  I see now that the long dangles get in the way of the tab collar of the jacket.]

What Valerie Wore:

A little creativity goes a long way when dressing the pregnant figure.  Here I am wearing a strapless Target sundress that I bought last year.  I wore some distressed boyfriend jean shorts from Charlotte Russe (also bought last year).  I found the lace cardigan on clearance at Target a few months ago and the brown strappy wedges are from Ross Dress For Less.

What Cita Wore:

Ann Taylor skirt from last summer, blue shirt from Perú, sweater is a thrift store find (no label) and the peep toe pumps are Guess from Marshall’s.
Wore this to work last week after curling my hair. You can already see the curls disappearing into waves.

What Jo-Lynne Wore:

Sunday was Mother’s Day and we went to church and then entertained family for lunch. I chose my white cropped skinny jeans (Gap) and paired them with a green top (Banana Republic) that I’ve had for years. I threw on a jean jacket (CAbi) because it was a bit chilly in the morning. I wore my Coach snakeskin espadrilles for fun, but once I got to church, I realized I had nursery duty. D’oh. I ended up going barefoot most of the morning. When I got home, I rolled up the hem of the jeans and put on my pewter braided sandals from Target.

My Kate Spade coral leather handbag added a nice contrasting color to the green, and then I finished off the outfit with my new Stella & Dot Delicate Drop earrings and Chelsea necklace.

What Melissa Wore:

Gracie is wearing a Little Lily Classic Shift dress by Lilly Pulitzer and an ivory sweater shrug by Target. I’m wearing a printed shell from the LOFT (two years ago), navy cardigan from LOFT (last year), skinny jeans from LOFT (last year). Purse by Coach and Aimee Locket Necklace and Rio Coin Drop Earrings by Stella and Dot.

I bought this set at a Stella and Dot party recently and I LOVE IT. Wearing it constantly! The locket is removeable, so it can be bolder or more subtle easily. The top is one I picked up on a whim off the clearance rack a couple years ago and it is a wardrobe staple for me all summer. It also looks fantastic with white pants.

Where: Opening night of The Flea and the Professor at the Arden Theater in downtown Philadelphia.

What Sarah Wore:

This very simple spring style is dressed up just a bit with accessories that pop. The feminine ivory top from LOFT is one that I wear constantly but the green skirt with buttons up the front from Talbots is a once in awhile piece when I need a dash of spring color. I love these greenish/beige linen wedges from Nickels that I got at Famous Footwear for a steal, but what really gets the attention is the colorful necklace from Target.
