WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

April 29th, 2015 at 2:10am

As the semester comes to a close, we begin to savor these last few weekends where we can go out with our friends and pretend there isn’t hours of homework to be done. The weather is finally starting to stay consistently warm and sunny so we’re able to dust off our spring dress favorites that we’ve had stored away in our closets. Especially here in the Pacific Northwest, it’s important to always have a little something to cover you up when the sun goes down so layering is definitely your best friend!

This Fashionista nails the perfect weekend wear ensemble in a super cute white cotton swing dress. She layers a black and white pinstriped draped shawl cardigan on top of that to help keep her warm when the Palouse winds start to blow. The flowy third-piece gives the outfit a boho feel and also helps to gives some added texture with its pattern.

To accessorize, this Fashionista keeps it simple by wearing a gorgeous neon green beaded statement necklace which does a great job at adding just a hint of spring color to the overall monochromatic color scheme. To give a little added flare, she decided to wear an ultra-chic pair of lace-up ankle booties which really pulled the whole ensemble together.

One Simple Change: Spring, even into summer, here in the Pacific Northwest can turn rainy in a moments notice so mini swing dresses might not always be your best bet for an ideal weekend outfit. Switch the mini dress for a plain white T-shirt or tank top and a pair of dark wash high-waisted skinny jeans so you can rock this ultra cute boho look while staying dry!
