Real Outfit Roundup: 7 Outfits to Copy this Month

by - February 03, 2022


This is my first outfit roundup post-Covid, and you can definitely tell a difference! We were out of quarantine and getting out of the house some, plus I actually felt like a human and made an effort with my clothes.

Most of the last two weeks has revolved around playing catch-up in pretty much all aspects of my life. We ended up extending the deadline for getting the February magazine done, and honestly, even though I felt much more like myself, I was still experiencing a lot of fatigue that first week out of quarantine. But getting fully dressed, even if I didn't go anywhere other than the school drop-off and pick-up lines, makes a pretty big difference in how I feel.

Anyway, these outfits are kind of all over the place style-wise, but I don't like feeling like I've been stuffed in a box when it comes to my personal style. If you're new around here, I share outfits I wore in real life every two weeks, what I did that particular day, and links to shop the same or similar items. Let's dive in!

Sizing info: I'm 5'2" tall and weigh around 150 lbs. I typically wear size 6 or small in most clothing and size 7 in shoes.


This was my first Monday out of quarantine. I had a lot to get done that day for the magazine and was still dealing with some pretty heavy fatigue. I wanted to be comfortable so joggers were the ticket and they matched my new tank top really well. I threw on a jacket whenever I went out, which wasn't often. Oh, and although I did not wear any makeup this day, I did actually put a little bit of effort into my hair.

I was still finishing up stuff for the February issue this day, but it was Alexis's first day back at gymnastics so I wanted to put a little more effort into my outfit. Plus, I really wanted to take this long shirt jacket for a spin. It was a great finishing piece for my new AC/DC t-shirt. The thing about this shacket is that it is super thin, much more like a shirt than a jacket. It also doesn't have pockets other than the buttoned breast pockets. The sleeve cuffs are bigger than my other one, though, meaning I don't have to unbutton them to get it on and off. I feel like, on me at least, the length is a little bit awkward because it reaches past my knees...but I'm going to keep wearing it.

Tank / Jacket / Jeans (similar) / Boots

Case in point, I wore it the very next day. This was the first day that I felt almost completely back to normal. I wanted to keep my outfit fairly simple, so I paired this cropped tank that I found on a 'must have' list somewhere with my high-waisted button-fly washed black jeans and Chelsea boots. I'm not a big fan of showing a lot of skin, but the jacket made it less noticeable. Still, I think this tank will probably end up going in my workout pile.

Shirt / Cardigan (similar) / Skirt / Tights / Boots (similar)

I had been looking forward to this outfit since it came in at the beginning of the year, but then we got sick and I didn't feel like wearing it. There wasn't really anything special about this day. It was the last day I worked on the February issue. My husband and I went out for lunch, too. I just really wanted to put together an outfit that would work for Valentine's Day but didn't feel too sugary sweet.

This faux leather skirt is actually a skort. There are shorts hiding up under there. It's high waisted with a side zipper and belt loops. My t-shirt is so stinking cute. If you can't tell, the Queen of Hearts is wearing sunglasses. And my cardigan is really old but was the perfect soft touch.

Camisole / Jacket (similar) / Skirt / Shoes (similar)

This is what I wore to celebrate the much-deserved retirement of a former coworker who's been my mentor and friend for more than a decade. He's always the best-dressed man in the room so I wanted to match his style level. This metallic skirt says it's blue but it really looks silver to me in all lighting, but I'm not mad about it. I paired it with a silky camisole with lace detailing at the neck and hem (you can't see that part since it's tucked in) and then finished it out with one of the oldest members of my closet that I'm sadly retiring after this last outing.

Cardigan / Shirt (similar) / Jeans (similar) / Boots

On Tuesday, it was actually fairly mild, but I've been waiting for a good opportunity to wear this cardigan that came in my StitchFix box. It's got little specks of pretty much every color in the rainbow woven throughout it so I'll be able to wear it with a lot of different things. I, clearly, kept this look nice and simple with a short-sleeve henley-style t-shirt, non-distressed boyfriend jeans, and brown Chelsea boots.

Sweater / Skirt (similar) / Shoes

With this outfit, I wanted to take some pieces in my closet that didn't seem to go together to create an outfit. Yes, they all matched, but the thickness of the sweater contrasts with the thinness of the skirt, and the light purple flats are definitely unexpected. I liked the outcome overall (otherwise I would have changed, ha!), but I do not recommend these shoes if you're going to be on your feet all day or doing a lot of walking.
