WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

We all have those days where we just can’t decide on something cute and comfy; it also doesn’t help when we can’t find an outfit that makes us feel both excited about life and ready for the weekend ahead, but look no further—this Fashionista has found the perfect combination with just the right amount of detail to stay casual, content and versatile. It’s an outfit that can conform to any and nearly all of your weekend needs.

She starts off with her staple piece: black jeans with crafty DIY slits in the knees; this is a major detail that drew me to her outfit in the first place. Following the simple model-off-duty look, the jeans are an easy piece that can be worn again and again to spice up an outfit or turn something clean-cut, like her vintage Ralph Lauren top, into a slightly edgier look. The distressed jeans are perfect for the weekend because they break up the solid color of the pant and draw the eye in a way that’s not too distracting nor inconvenient for the person wearing them. They’re easy to throw on and go with everything without looking too formal!

In addition to great basics, this Fashionista had some awesome thrifted pieces, including a cranberry color watch that added just the right pop of color to an otherwise minimalistic palette. She says she wears it nearly every day, and the simplicity of the watch is what keeps this vintage style so timeless. Even if you can’t find a similar watch at your local secondhand store, plenty of brands carry them, from high-end watches to Target watches. Her other, more camouflaged accessory is a black leather backpack that goes with her everywhere. A smart, hands-free option such as this is never a bad idea and is big enough to hold all the essentials (especially a water bottle for those hot summer days!).

Who are we kidding, the true sign of a perfect weekend outfit is comfort, right? This is where this Fashionista’s black adidas shoes come into play—they don’t steal the show, but they don’t have to. They blend in seamlessly for a look that is relaxed and perfect for walking around town. Whether the sunny weekend day took her from a trip to Trader Joe’s, to a frozen yogurt shop with friends or to a walk in the park, her feet were definitely thanking her at the end of the day. Who said good style can’t also be practical?

One Simple Change: While shoes that are comfy and stylish are ideal, if you need to take your weekend look from day to night, swapping the sneakers for a sophisticated pair of booties should do the trick!
