WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

From hanging out with friends, to running essential errands and enjoying the summer weather, weekends are for the warriors. During the weekend there are just so many things to do and so little time. While you want to be comfortable during the weekend, it’s also important to dress cute and avoid falling into the summer outfit trap (a danger I know far too well).

Dressing for summer weekends in Arizona can be particularly difficult (at best). It’s far too easy to fall into the tank top and shorts routine when it comes to the 100 plus degree weather here in the desert. Fortunately, this rut can by all means be avoided! It’s all about incorporating your usual personal style into cute, simple comfortable outfits.

This Fashionista strays far from the typical summer rut and stays true to her personal style. She’s protected from the sun in a long, black skirt. However, she keeps from becoming overheated by choosing a loose and flowing skirt made from light materials as opposed to a hotter option made from heavy fabric. She keeps the look both monochromatic and cool by pairing her skirt with a black Nirvana crop top. To top the outfit off, this Fashionista accessorizes with black sandals with a chain detail and aviator sunglasses. She also excellently matches her nails to her all-black ensemble and accentuates their almond shape with some silver hand candy. This outfit is great for a variety of activities for this Fashionista’s busy weekend.

One Simple Change: To take this look from casual weekend wear to a job interview, trade the black crop top for a classic white button-down.
