WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Getaway

What to Wear

I must say that I have a serious case of senioritis. With school ending in a mere two weeks, all I can think about is the new adventure in my life that is about to begin. Until then, I could really use a weekend getaway. A day or two could really help clear my mind and prepare me for the final weeks ahead. Whittier’s perfect location in Southern Cali allows for an easy getaway that would take only an hour’s drive. I have been looking for the perfect outfit inspiration and I thought this Fashionista nailed it. Her maxi dress is casual and comfortable, yet the color and lace detailing of her dress add a hint of formality. This outfit is perfect when you want to feel laid back, but still look classy and chic.

To get her look, start with a maxi dress that has a lace or even crochet detailing. I like how this dress has a lace overlay with a front slit. This makes it especially appropriate for hot destinations. Next, I absolutely love her leather tote. Not only is this trending, but a tan leather tote is sophisticated and the largeness of the bag allows for carrying many getaway essentials. She then wore a simple pair of brown leather sandals to complement her purse.  I loved her finishing touch of adding a beaded pair of chandelier earrings.

One Simple Change: If you are headed to a casual date soon, I would wear this outfit. However, I would switch the tote for a cross-body bag in order to avoid bulkiness.
