Iffy by Melissa

To be honest, I am not quite sure what I was thinking here. Was it “How many patterns can I fit in ONE outfit?” or “I am going to pick blindly from the closet and just put it on.” Maybe it was “I am going to be wearing camo for the next month – get in all other patterns while you still can.” Whatever it was, I still thought it was pretty fantastic till about half way through the day. Then it was more like, “What am I wearing?!?” Anyone else feel iffy about their outfit choices as the day ends?

Fashionable Comfort by Kristina

Generally, I over-wear particular pieces in my closet until I’m sick of them, then forget about them, then discover them, then get all giddy over them again, then…I know. Vicious cycle. I keep waiting for this jersey dress to get old, but it just doesn’t. Jersey knit stripes are just the thing a girl needs to get her comfy on without completely abandoning all fashion sense!

My life is really just made up of an endless exploration for my next pair of shoes. And for the last two years, I have been on the hunt for the perfect boot. I promise you I have tried them all. There was even a time when I was almost desperate enough to buy myself a ridiculously expensive pair of Fryes, but those didn’t even make the cut. Well, now that I have found the perfect boot, I’m not really sure what to do with myself. I’ll be staring at the computer screen with my favorite shoe site pulled up and then realize I have nothing to look for. I have everything I need. I’ve met the one, and my search is done. Maybe I should start crocheting more now that I have all this free time..

Not liking the harem-pant-look I’m getting from these pants.. If I hike it up any higher, Baby will protest and angrily kick all day so I had to low-ride them. Already, Baby = 1, Elaine = 0…..

I’ve been really into layering t-shirts since most of my shirts are too short. I liked seeing the looseness of the t-shirt under the shorter “fitted” shirt…though I don’t have any more “fitted” shirts…so…there’s that..

Anyway, I wore this a couple weekends ago when Chase and I met up with a reader/fellow baby mama and her adorable family. She offered to donate some clothes and toys to us!!! It was so nice to meet up with her and chat about all things baby-related, especially since she and her husband are more experienced than us! More importantly, they had a MASSAGE CHAIR. I could’ve sat there forever…

Thank you, Shelia!!
Very Jane and I are giving away the exact necklace I’m wearing here! Two winners!!

First of all, a Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there!!! Have you called your mom yet? :)Mustard is quite possibly my favorite color right now. Something about it – and I’m not sure what it is – goes with neutrals so, so well.  I love how this cardigan looked on top of my black and white polka dotted top. I’m always very conscious of what colors I choose to pair with black and white.

And another thing – I kept this in my closet back home while I was adventuring in Japan. When I came back, it was like I had discovered a new treasure! Lesson learned: Time away really does make the heart grow fonder, even with clothes. Who knew?

Classic Chambray and Black

leopard print scarf via ebay, $8; thrifted Gap chambray shirt, $3; Forever 21 pleated skirt; Fitzwell flats, $76

Was inspired by another pin for this outfit. Loved the casual effortlessness of the chambray with the black pleats.

Also, I was experimenting with how to tie my scarf in the first pic. Not sure if I like it yet… Anyone know what that knot is called? Just saw it floating around Pinterest and thought I’d give it a go!

Date Night by Melissa

No spark during the date? Wear a little sparkle in your belt!


Ann Taylor top; Abercrombie & Fitch jeans (similar); J.Crew shoes and belt

This is my current date night outfit. Lately, I’m loving classy, formal-looking tops dressed down with a pair of fitted jeans. It’s a great combo for a date that you don’t know how to dress for (which still happens with me and my husband). The collar is meant to be folded down, but I prefer it up.

Cute flats are a great idea to keep the outfit fun and feminine while still being able to take those long romantic walks or awkward strolls to and from restaurants……. Speaking of flats, loafers are amazing! Patterned loafers are even better. Thanks, mommy! With all one color, a pattern can really pop anywhere you have it.

Whether it’s the best night of your life or a total bust, having a versatile date night outfit makes you ready for almost everything! 😉

Happy Mix

First of all, you guys… Thank you for ALL of your comments, suggestions, stories, support, and love from my adult acne post. I was quite literally shaking with anxiety a whole day before it was even posted! I kept contemplating whether I was ready to reveal so much of myself…an ugly side no less. But I hated feeling alone through this. I felt like everyone had great, perfect complexion except for me. I realize how ridiculous that is now.. We’re all in this together (or were for the lucky ones!) If you know of anyone who is suffering from adult acne, please direct them to that post and let them know they are not alone, that they are beautiful, that their skin doesn’t define them. Now back to regular programming..

I’ve been avoiding cardigans lately… Maybe I cardiganed myself out? But when I saw this color peeking out from the sea of monstrous grandma prints at the thrift store, I had to snatch it! Plus, how else could I have recreated this J.Crew fall look kinda sorta?? They had me at chartreuse, stripes, and leopard…which is essentially everything. Let’s consider this the younger sister version of the J.Crew look… Anyway, buttoning it up all the way with a scarf (tutorial here!) to hide the v-neck makes it look like a regular loose, comfy sweater. I like! Wonder what other cardigans I can do this with…

Also, how I wore this cardigan with jeans – one arm at a time.

And, hey! We’re still taking questions for our Q&A! Get to know the Clothed Much team and post your questions here!

This post is brought to you by thrifting and Target. I got these sweatpants a couple weeks ago and they’re all I’ve been wearing at home (with a t-shirt, gross! {..or is it?}). Can you tell I’ve been in a be-as-lazy-as-possible-but-still-look-put-together-with-the-least-amount-of-effort mood lately? Ahem. In fact, I’m so lazy that I wore this to work. I’m 97.4% sure that I wore this all weekend too. But that’s the beauty of it all… Add high-heels and a blazer and you can’t even tell they’re sweatpants!! (Work with me here..)
Also, how to dress up cropped sweatpants to wear them to work (at least, my work).

What’s a sweater?

I swapped this sweater from Meredith a while ago but L.A. doesn’t know what sweaters are so by the end of the day, it was drenched in sweat. (Probably from my awesome ping pong skills.) Srsly, so cute! For the color combo, I was inspired by this look from Zara. I figured I’ll never wear leopard print shorts (Never say never?) so I subbed it for my scarf instead.

And if your scarf is missing something, add a brooch! or a flower!
