WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

July 10th, 2015 at 2:00am

Whether you have a few errands to run or you’re meeting up with some friends for a relaxing weekend, looking put together is always a must. There are plenty of how-to’s and fashion police shows that offer advice on how to dress for certain occasions, however putting a comfortable outfit together doesn’t have to be a process.

This Fashionista started with her favorite pair of blue jeans and rolled them up to turn them into cuffed capris. Jeans are always a good option for weekend wear because they’re so versatile, you can take a pair from casual to out-on-the-town just by changing your top or shoes. Florida can be unforgiving when it comes to heat and humidity so she’s decided on a light, off the shoulder top with an earthy pattern. The details in the shirt are what make the outfit and are allowed to stand out when she completed the look with plain sandals.

When flipping through the pages of a fashion catalog there are plenty of well matched, and perfectly put together looks. However, fashion is not about being predictable and perfect it’s a way for people to express themselves without any direct communication. You can see this Fashionista’s desire for simple lines and expressive patterns in the outfit she’s put together. There is another pop of personality in her brightly colored beads and her heirloom ring. I learned her grandmother gave this ring to her, and she wears it often. Not only do these pieces add a little quirk to the outfit, but they also act as conversation starters at parties.

One Simple Change: If you’re suddenly thrown into a formal setting uncuff the jeans and put on a pair of black flats or chunky heels if appropriate. This keeps the look bohemian and adds a bit more class.
