What I Wore: Lattes and Lipstick

"Finally, another fashion post!" some of you may be thinking.  Sorry it has been so long, y'all.  Life has been happily busy and, after our trip to the beach, I was basically in my pajamas for a week and a half.  House chores, resting, editing photos, and catching up on various things were what was in order.

As I gear up for my next round of thyroid cancer-related check-ups, my anxiety has gone through the roof!  It tends to do that before any doctor's appointment these days, but it becomes pretty all-consuming and everything seems to trigger it.  I'm trying different techniques to handle the anxiety better.  Sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't.  I attempted a "Give No F*cks" attitude last weekend to keep from having a panic attack over something I knew would trigger me; and it helped.  It is just an ongoing process of constant awareness, repeating positive phrases, and reassuring myself that I am okay.  I am assuming this feeling of total dread is quite common under the circumstances, so reminding myself I am normal and not the only one who is feeling this way can sometimes keep the anxiety monster from growing. 

Read on for outfit details and all the fun stuff...





I know JCPenney has been getting a lot of attention lately because of Ashley Nell Tipton's fun designs.  While I was buying Sean some clearance shorts (they have a great selection for Big & Tall Men), I bought myself a few basic t-shirts to begin to replace the very old tees I wear a lot that are on their last legs.  I found these a.n.a Relaxed Fit Boyfriend Tees (I wear a 3X).  They have a really great fit that is more A-line and skims over the tummy rolls.  I've bought five of them so far.  With the extra 15% or 20% off, they come to about $7.50.  Super groovy! If you need to stock up on t-shirts for layering, around-the-house wear, pajamas, or whatever, get 'em while the getting is good!

While I was looking around online, I found the cute tee I am wearing in today's post.  Lattes and lipstick?  Yes, please!  I also loved that it was not a white shirt, because so many tees lately seem to be white.  It looked similarly cut to the a.n.a tees mentioned above, so I added it to my purchase.  Later on, I ended up having time to stop by JCP to do a dressing room post for y'all, in which I tried on the white "Curves Are Trending" t-shirt that is in this same style and cut.  Based on how that shirt fit, I was so excited for this one to finally arrive!

For reference, I am 5'9", typically wear a 22/24, and my measurements are 52/49/58.

While it is a little longer in the back and I wish the sleeves were a few inches longer, I still really love this top.  The rounded hem lends to the flowy fit through the stomach and hips.  The length is really great for me overall.  I love the v-neck and soft rayon/spandex fabric.  The fabric is on the thinner side, so I am wearing a cami underneath, but I also generally wear a cami underneath every shirt I wear.  I also feel that the thinner fabric makes it an easier layering piece.  I am one of those people that is usually too warm (despite my thyroid condition that usually makes people too cold. Go figure!), so layering usually isn't much of an option for me unless I want to be cranky and uncomfortable all day.  I really hope JCP continues making more of these cute tees because I will totally snatch them up.

We were running some errands and headed to Bunco on Saturday.  Despite the lovely 60-70 degree weather we have been having, there is a little chill in the air to let us know fall is on the way.  I knew the evening would be a bit more chilly, so I donned my short sleeve anorak jacket I bought from Torrid.  I am so glad I grabbed this jacket when I did, because it is no longer available.  It went really fast!  Like I said, I am usually on the warmer side, but it rains here most of the year.  Finding lighter jackets with hoods has been tough.  I love my other anorak jackets and I probably didn't *need* another one.  However, this one has come in handy and is very cute.  Destructed denim and comfy flats rounded out my easygoing, casual look.
