What I Wore Last Week

Jessica Sturdy shares her daily outfit iphone photos in a Monday post called What I Wore Last Week

Happy Monday, my friends! If you’re new here, What I Wore Last Week is a weekly series posted on Mondays featuring almost all of the outfits I wore last week. (Pretty self-explanitory, huh? 😂) These photos are never the most glamorous or high-quality, as they’re taken on my phone and totally in the moment. No location scouting, no professional photos, just real-life. You can read about why I started the series here and see the last few weeks of outfits here!

PS: On Monday nights, Margeaux does a prix fixe menu, “Mondays at Margeaux,” that includes an appetizer, entree, and dessert for $35. (The menu rotates each week!) Half-price bottles of wine, too! Great for dates or a weekday catch-up with girlfriends.

Kelly Chrischilles and Jessica Sturdy at Daybreaker Chicago in the summer on a rooftop in the West Loop with city skyline views

What is Daybreaker?! OMG, FUNNEST MORNING EVER. We kicked off the morning with a 5:30am rooftop yoga session and then a silent disco dance party from 6:30-8:30am. We both agreed we were in the highest spirits all day long… I wish every day could start dancing on a rooptop with epic skyline views! We kept our yoga clothes on for the dance party, but people bring fun outfits to go with the theme and change in between when they’re serving coffee and snacks. (Daybreaker happens all over the world so be sure to check it out if it’s up your alley!)

Thursday, June 14th  |  Out on a friend’s boat for the evening!

Forgot to snap a pic, but I wore this exact outfit with my Jack Rogers instead because these Soludos sandals are mysteriously MIA.

Friday, June 15th  |  Spent majority of the day in the car (read about that here!) and then got pizza with my dad when I finally got to my hometown. I was simply wearing a loose sweater, these jean shorts (they’re my favorites!), and my Kim & Zozi glitter sneaks.

Saturday, June 16th  |  Day with family!

Mott & Bow Tee  |  Mott & Bow Mom Jeans  |  Gucci Aviators  |  On my niece: Roxy Striped Sneakers

Jessica Sturdy hometown

During the day, I went truck shopping with my dad when the heat index was about 105 so it was a day of this tee, these shorts, and these sandals. I put on something equally a comfortable, but a little bit more put together for ice cream and then dinner at Texas Roadhouse! (Yes, in that order.)

Sunday, June 17th  |  Another day with family!

Vineyard Vines Striped Dress  |  White Elephant Designs Wicker Bag  |  Old Navy Slide Sandals (old; similar here!)  |  Gucci Aviators

Father’s Day was such a fun day that left my heart feeling very full! I attended my 5-year-old niece’s “Little Miss” pageant at the Sangamon County Fair, spent some time with my Grandmother, got some QT in with my brother, and even went out on the cattle farm with my dad, haha. I didn’t leave central IL until about 9:30pm so I didn’t sit down at my desk to start this post until about 1:30am. (And it’s currently 3:30…) It’s going to be a sleepy Monday, but well worth it!
