Four Ways to Wear Cognac Mules + Currently

|
On the first Wednesday of every month I love joining up with Anne for her "Currently" link-up. She provides the creative variety of topics, and the participants provide the answers! This month we're all sharing what we're currently wearing, collecting, making, taking, and planning. Coincidentally my Wednesday posts usually start with what I'm wearing anyway, so that's convenient for me! Most days that I'm working from home I keep it pretty simple with basic tees and jeans (or shorts depending on the weather). If I'm going somewhere in the afternoon or evening (e.g. running errands or taking kids to their lessons), then I "fancy up" my basics with some jewelry. This outfit epitomizes my day to day uniform lately!

These t-shirts are lightweight, which makes them great for transition weather/cooler evenings here, plus they'll be nice for layering in the winter. I wear either XS or Small in this brand depending on the item. I went XS in this and I like it. It's not too tight but not baggy either. My shoes are true to size and really comfortable. Plus easy to throw on and go when we're running late for something!

I've had to take a break from styling each item multiple ways on the blog lately as I adapt to some life changes outside the blog. But this is the fourth time I've worn these in photos (even more in everyday life)! So that made it a little easier to just put the pictures altogether in one place!
ONE:  T-Shirt (c/o) | Necklace | Similar Jeans | Shoes (c/o) | Earrings | Handbag (c/o) 

With the "wearing" category out of the way, here's what I'm currently collecting, making, taking, and planning!

Collecting...mules, apparently! I got my first pair last fall and it has quickly become my favorite transition shoe style. The other pairs I've been wearing (aside from the ones in today's outfit) are out of stock so I've just been linking to similar options. I am partial to styles with a low to moderate block heel, but I have seen so many cute options for flats that I had to share some today. I know some of my friends and family who read the blog prefer flats so no sense in keeping these to myself even if I'm not getting them.

One: Shop: Jeffrey Campbell Shoes (Charlin) | Two: Shop Schutz Shoes (Dana) | Three: Shop Madewell Shoes (Remi) | 
Four: Amazon  (Under $30) | Five: Amazon (Under $30) | Six: Amazon (Under $25 - Also comes in Black and Grey)


Making...changes to the blog format and content as I try to figure out this working mom/blog life balance. I shared a little more about that in Monday's post if you want to know more.

Taking...a chance on a couple of book clubs! I've never done an official book club in person or even online, but I'm giving one of each a shot for October. If you're interested in the online book club (run by one of my family members) feel free to send me an email! Both of the books the clubs selected look interesting and I never would have found or selected them myself, so I'm looking forward to both!

Planning...for Thanksgiving. It seems a little far away, but for the past five years (since we lived in San Diego), we've waited until the last minute to even think about Thanksgiving, which means we end up staying local and feeling a little sad the whole weekend because we miss our extended families. This year we're determined to make plans and try something a little different for ourselves!

Looking forward to hearing what you all are up to lately too!

  1. Such a cute casual outfit! I'm almost always in jeans working from home too, unless I have to take my son to his appointment.

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope that you are having a great week so far :)

  2. You are rocking these mules, I'm trying to keep my shoes without backs as Charnele calls them to a minimum, I already have 3. I would love a heeled one eventually. I just made thanksgiving plans.

    1. "Shoes without backs!" Ha!! Yeah I probably need to slow my roll. If I get too many of one kind they're guaranteed to go out of style!

  3. I am loving the cognac mules! I may need to be on the look out for a pair to add to my ever growing shoe collection. They are so versatile and classic and I love the way you have styled them.

  7. Your cognac mules look so versatile! I really like the flat options you shared, because even though I am a heel girl, flat mules have been a nice change for my wardrobe.

  9. You're so smart to start thinking about Thanksgiving now. It always does sneak up on me! I am also becoming such a fan of mules--I have 2 flat pairs that I'm loving! I love the heeled sandal version you have too, I'm thinking I may need a similar (but closed-toe) pair for fall!

  12. WHAT?! Those yellow flats from Amazon are amazing! The last thing I need is another pair of shoes, but I've been looking at the Jeffrey Campbell ones for ages... what a great find. And I can't wait to hear what the book club selections are - book clubs are the best! :)

    1. Glad you liked those! I have a different pair of shoes from that retailer and of course they're not top quality, but they're suitable for the price!

  13. Mules are so comfy and cute, you really can’t lose with this style of shoe! I’m definitely wanting to add a new pair to my closet since the ones I wore all last Fall and Winter are looking sad lol.

  15. Mules are such a great option for this time of year. I love that you always find some great save options! We had a book group in my old neighborhood for years and I always enjoyed it. I've never joined a virtual club and will be looking forward to hearing about it!
