WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

July 30th, 2015 at 2:10am

Happy Thursday, friends! As the weekend finally rolls around, it is all about getting in that relaxation time with your closest friends and family. We all have busy schedules even during the summer months, so it is always best to try to maintain simple, easy looks. This Fashionista keeps it casual but also versatile for any weekend excursion. I love how she has put together an outfit that consists of all basics that are actually not so basic!

Distressed denim has been huge in 2015. Designers and countless brands have recreated versions of this trend, but there’s no need to splurge! Her destroyed light wash boyfriend jeans are from Forever 21. One of my theories on personal style is to try to seek out affordable trendy items and invest in pieces that are a classic, staple item in your wardrobe.

The Birkenstock is back and better than ever. The theme around this ensemble is comfort-chic, which is exactly what a pair of Birkenstocks provide. The cuffed bottoms of her jeans pair perfectly with some easy slip on sandals that instantly creates an effortless, laid back feel to the outfit. The detail and fit of these jeans can be paired with almost anything to ensure a look that is more edgy and fun.

Can we also take a moment to appreciate her beautiful choice of nail polish? I absolutely love playing up nail color in the summer time, especially with unique shades that accentuate a tan. She kept her jewelry simple with a delicate gold arrow necklace and some loose gold bangles. Lastly, her neutral tank and colored gradient aviators scream summertime.

One Simple Change: Did your friends plan a BBQ and bonfire get together last minute? For a day to night look, be sure to grab a cozy sweater and don’t forget to B.Y.O.S (bring your own S’mores). Ditch the sunglasses and distressed jeans for a comfortable pair of shorts!
