WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

One of the best aspects of summer is always being outside. Unless the weather is cloudy and raining, all activities can be a “fun in the sun” activity—especially a backyard barbecue filled with friends and, of course, food.

This Fashionista is wearing an ideal outfit for a weekend barbecue. Simple and stylish is key when the temperature hits over 80 degrees and this Fashionista, wearing boyfriend jeans and a printed tank top, looks ready to sip some lemonade on a hot summer Saturday.

The new American Eagle Outfitters Tomgirl Jeans are the perfect pair to achieve this Fashionista’s look. The classic graphic tank top can be found just about anywhere, but I like to purchase mine at Urban Outfitter. So in order to achieve this look, try pairing the jeans with this muscle T-shirt. This Fashionista decided to pair her look with a pair of brown sandals. These particular sandals give the outfit more fashion flair in comparison to a pair of regular flip flops.

When looking at this outfit, it’s obvious that this Fashionista has a real talent for accessorizing. No outfit is complete without its accessories and the simple silver pendant acts as a perfect touch without taking away from the writing on the tank top. Instead of carrying around a bulky purse, this Fashionista opted for a chic black KORS Michael Kors cross-body bag. My personal favorite part of this look is that this Fashionista keeps her sunglasses perched upon her curled hair for easy access just in case there’s a little too much sunshine. When looking for an outfit to wear to spend a day with family and friends, remember simplicity is key, especially in the summer.

One Simple Change: Leaving the barbecue and going out with friends? Swap the ripped, boyfriend jeans and sandals for a pair of black skinny jeans and wedges. They’ll be perfect for a night on the town.
