A Look in my Closet: OOTD

I just got back yesterday from a truly inspiring trip to Florida for our Trades of Hope Retreat. As I promised last week, I will be showing you today what I wore each day from start to finish on the trip.  I do have pictures from the actual event, but they all have friends in them that I am not sure would want their faces on my blog. I was so wrapped up in the moment that I didn’t remember to have my picture taken alone in each outfit.  Sorry about that!   Anyway, I put everything back on this morning and photographed it all really quick. These aren’t the best quality of pictures since I did it hurriedly this morning, but you will get the idea.  I will share more with you tomorrow about the experience as a whole, but I wanted to take today just to show you my outfits. Many of these things you have seen before, but I wanted to show you how you can take what you already have in your closet and make it work.

Thursday: Travel

I always want to be comfortable when I am traveling.  I decided to go with a pair of jeans because it is usually cold on an airplane.  I paired it with this cute t-shirt and a pair of Converse shoes, which are easy to slip  on and off when going through airport security.

Thursday Evening: Resort Casual

For the kickoff event on Thursday evening, we were told to come in “Resort Casual.” I wasn’t really sure what that meant exactly, so I decided to go with this floral maxi dress from Lularoe.  I thought the tropical print and laid back style of the dress was casual yet screamed resort vacation.

Friday: Team Tee/Business Casual

For the morning and afternoon sessions, we were told the attire was “business casual.” However, Friday was the day we were also supposed to wear our team t-shirts.  How do you make a t-shirt look business casual? You add a pair or white jeans, sandals, and a cute silky kimono. The kimono also doubled as added warmth because the rooms were freezing cold!

Friday Evening: Cocktail Attire

For this night, the dress was cocktail attire.  I got lucky and found this adorable dress from Vineyard Vines at TJ Maxx for a great price.

Saturday Evening: Glam it up

This night was party night with our big gala. My team was supposed to wear something with flowers. After a lot of searching and trying on, I finally found this cute dress at Macy’s. It was my one splurge for the trip. I paired it with a pair of heels that I have had for years.

Sunday: Travel

My travel outfit for the plane ride home was super similar to my travel outfit on the way there.  I went with jeans, a t-shirt, and Converse shoes again for comfort. I paired it with another Lularoe kimono to keep me warm on the plane.

As you can see, I kept it simple for easy packing and used many things that I already had in my closet. It truly was an incredible experience, and I can’t wait to share more of it with you tomorrow.
