WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

While some see summer time as a time to relax, let loose and vacay every day, others see summer as the beginning of being bogged down with those pesky minimum-wage jobs on week days and hardly having a free moment to chill out. You gain a whole new appreciation for the phrase “TGIF.” But after five days of those agonizing nine to five shifts, a beacon of fun and excitement lies ahead. Its name? The weekend!

If you are anything like me, you’re always up for a new adventure, especially on these two day mini vacations. Weekends in the Carolinas mean hitting up the beach, the trails or even a local amusement park. But of course, your wardrobe has to match your latest adventure.

I caught up with this Fashionista celebrating her weekend of freedom at the boardwalk. Her unique sense of style made her stick out from the crowd, while her outfit was versatile enough for her to be up for any adventure she may find. She paired her graphic T-shirt (always a crowd favorite) with a pair of pinstripe denim shorts. She added a pop of color to the look with a swipe of her bright magenta lipstick. She threw on a pair of funky vintage sunglasses, simple earrings and a lokai bracelet to accessorize her weekend look.

My favorite part about this outfit is the sock and shoe combo. This Fashionista pairs her da Vinci-inspired socks with a simple set of gray Vans sneakers.

One Simple Change: For cooler summer nights, throw on a flannel or a denim button-down to complete the look.
