WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

July 17th, 2015 at 2:10am

In this look, it’s hard to imagine our Fashionista doing anything other than frolicking through a field of wild sunflowers. Well, except for maybe carrying around a beautiful bouquet of cut ones at her local farmer’s market! With summer finally here in the midwest, our looks are all about thin fabrics and old fashioned silhouettes with a modern flair. Sarcastically describing her style as ‘edgy Amish’ and simultaneously flirting with today’s trends is our Fashionista’s motto for her weekend wear.

In the midwest, the farmer’s market is more than just the closest produce stop–it’s a mini summertime culture hub, complete with common trends worn by every market It girl. Although they rose to fashion fame years ago, our Fashionista isn’t afraid to still rock her maxi skirt. This floral print mixed with the edgy buttons make it the outfit’s focus. Remaining true to her signature style, she threw on a soft pink tee and some classic Birkenstock sandals to ‘ground’ the outfit. Finally, no farmer’s market getup would be complete without a piece of market jewelry. Our Fashionista chose a simple glass necklace that adds a softer line to an otherwise angular outfit. Remember to keep your fabrics nice and breathable—you’ll need it for a day out in the sun!

One Simple Change: Got to catch your little brother’s soccer game later? Throw a cute pair of breezy shorts in your bag so you can swap that maxi out for something a little more casual! Summer often calls for quick changes; if you’re on the go, you can’t beat being prepared with an extra pair of shorts or a light jacket.
