WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

When we’re not swimming at Stroud’s Run (the local lake) or hiking on one of the many trails that surround the Hocking, Ohio area, we OU Bobcats do know a thing or two about going out in style. In fact, along the infamous Court Street, there are quite a few quaint and stylish boutiques. Plus, a little over an hour north from Hocking, is Buckeye territoryhome to urban clothing shops that have the fresh, hipster-esque looks so appealing to those of us millennials who crave crop tops and high-waisted cut-off shorts when the weather heats up.

That is just the vibe Fashionista pictured expressed: A fresh-but-boho look, featuring (with her Forever 21 high-waisted cotton shorts) just a hint of prep. Pairing clean-cut shorts with her boho-inspired off-the-shoulder blouse, she perfectly pulled together an outfit which demonstrated being preppy and hipster don’t have to mutually exclusive. In fact, pairing preppy with boho pieces make for a stand-out outfit—which is why this look wonderfully works for a weekend shopping trip, a movie date or even brunch with your family, friends or bae. With its flexibility to be an all-encompassing ultimate weekend outfit, this look demonstrated you really can have the best of both worlds *cue Hannah Montana*.

Following through with her outfit’s mix-and-match vibe, this Fashionista paired her shorts with a brown belt (who said brown and black don’t compliment each other?), added a few personal jewelry pieces  (pro-tip: to pop more of the boho side, adding different sized rings creates a more fantastical appearance), and straightened her hair (which stayed together fabulously under the Ohio heat).

One Simple Change: Here, our Fashionista is sporting a classic leather Fossil purse. However, if you yourself want to wear this outfit shopping or out for mimosas with the ladies, then you may want to bring along a mini cross-body. Depending on the color of the purse you bring, detail shoes and belt accordinglysomething which this Fashionista has done a wonderful job of.
