What I wore while out and about

What I wore

Happy Tuesday, friends!  Today, I am sharing What I wore while out and about last week.

The What I Wore posts have been a request of readers for some time now.

I completely understand how helpful it can be to see what women are wearing in their real lives…and not just posed ones.

So, today, here are What I wore outfits from different times going out last week….hope it helps….


What I wore

This is what I wore to go to James Avery Craftsman Jewelry last week and complete my granddaughter’s gift of a charm bracelet.

I purchased one more little charm, so when she receives it on Christmas Day it will be started with three.

I am wearing Chico’s pull-on denim jeggings; an Old Navy Ruffle Neck denim blouse; and a JJill Sedona Plaid Blazer….the flats are older and have been in my closet for a while.

Here are some similar options and there are some petite options here:


What I wore


What I wore to my allergist appointment does take some planning.

When I go for allergy shots, I just want to take down the coat, get shot, and go…which means a sleeveless option underneath any topper.

I really have enjoyed the two Target jackets I picked up this fall…they are perfect for the climate I am living in.

Yes, they are very casual…but great for going out and about.  On this day, I was getting a shot and going right back home!

I am wearing a pair of Chico’s Girlfriend Jeans, a red sleeveless V-neck knit top from JJill, a little snowflake scarf I found at Walgreen’s last year for $9, and DSW gold-toe sneakers.

There is a Petite version of the jeans.

The picture was taken at the medical office by the receptionists. I told her I liked the tree topper, so she said…let’s take a picture.

What I wore

Here is what their Christmas tree wore!  I had never seen a tree topper like this one before.

She told me she found him at Walmart…so I found him for anyone who loves the idea…and it is a very reasonable price.

Christmas Tree Topper Snowmanand another cute one is Holiday Time Snowman with Scarf Tree Topper.

It is always fun to go out and about and see new ideas…right?


what I wore

While out and about recently, I saw this sign outside of the wonderful bookstore at The Historic Pearl.

Great reminder.  We do not look the same on the outside or wear the same clothing or even strive to be the same….but the beauty inside us all is the same.

Thanks for dropping by today to see WHAT I WORE…and remember tomorrow is all about Today’s News…curated just for you.

every day with accessories



  1. As a petite I appreciate your finding items for us. As I’ve told you before, I’ve learned to look for the inseam measurement. With so many ankle length pants available, depending on your height you may be able to buy regular sized pants. Personally, I look for a 27” inseam for my 5’2” frame.

  2. You looked perfect, and I like seeing what people really wear, as I love to see handbags and hear about the “why” of dressing. I too wear sleeveless tops to the doctor. You never know when you will be poked and prodded, and you can fit the blood pressure cuff comfortably. I find too that I always need comfortable shoes these days, because there always seems to be walking. I’ve given up on the “wear to dinner” shoes, because they just sit in my closet. The key is to get your functional items to express your style.

  3. Yes! I agree, Linda…get your functional items to express your style. Great way to say it!

  4. Pam, you look wonderful . Very joyful!! If you want to read a sweet book for Christmas time, try The Christmas Pearl by Dorothea Benton Frank. Love the tree topper.

  5. I always do the same as I am the same height as you are. The other thing I look for is rise b/c high-rise Misses can be significantly more than Petites. Depending on the brand, I might go down a size in the Misses, although this can be tricky. Love that Pam offered Petite options!!!

  6. Pam, I love you and the snowman! I never look that happy at any of my doctors’ offices – LOL

  7. My allergy doctor and her staff are so sweet and fun! It is one doctor’s office that always makes me smile!
    Thanks Maeve

  8. I’m not sure where some of my messages go but I do love your look- the blazer and the green jacket especially! Very nice!

    Just curious- is it cooler in San Antonio now?
    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  9. Hi Paulette! Actually, this week is warmer. Will be in the 80s today! Thanks for being here.

  10. Another thanks for providing petite options! I sometimes can get away with a 27.5″ or 28″ inseam on regular sizes (since I’m about 5ft3), but petite sized bottoms sometimes fit better in the rise (note I say ‘sometimes’… it’s a struggle to get right! *Sigh*)
