Happy Thursday! Anybody else feel like Friday can’t come fast enough??? Very ready for the weekend over here. Partially because I’ve found my new go-to weekend look and I can’t wait to wear it again (seriously, I look forward to days because of what I get to wear – totally normal, I swear). Here it is: A pair of white sneakers. A pair of white jeans. A striped tee with a sweet little detail. A simple tote. A pair of fabulous sunglasses. A silk scarf. A leather jacket. A pair of gold hoops. Et voila! The easiest weekend look ever. See? That really was easy!
These white Converse are the most recent addition to my ever-growing shoe collection. I’ve been on a quest to find the perfect sneaker and keep striking out. I’ll choose one that’s too trendy, too girly, too uncomfortable and I always ended up being dissatisfied and still looking for something else. Then I reminded myself of a new style rule I’m trying to enforce for myself as I refine my look: When in doubt, turn to the classics. It doesn’t get more classic than Chuck Taylors. What’s a little unique about these is the laces which knot instead of tie, and there’s an elastic back so that they stay on without the tying. They cost me about $55 at DSW. The red and blue stripes are really fun to match to accessories and tops, like a scarf or your bag or your top or your lipstick. I also like these Adidas Gazelles (so old school!) if you’re looking for another classic option.
And then there are white jeans. They’ve become a staple for every stylish gal’s closet – year round. Remember when I wrote about how you can wear them after Labor Day? I love these stretchy ones by J.Crew.
This little cotton top is a recent purchase from Loft. I loved that it was a simple striped t-shirt with a little flair. The ruffled sleeves add the perfect bit of girliness to the look. They always have a sale going on, so you can score full-priced pieces for next to nothing! These sunnies are LOFT, too. On sale for $15 in store!!!
As for the tote – Old Navy, my fave! It’s going to be my go-to tote all summer (also love this one!). I wrote all about it here when I partnered with Old Navy last week! Tying a scarf around you bag adds a little style but also keeps it handy for chilly summer nights. Throw on your leather jacket (mine’s old by Whet Blu – this one is similar!) and tie it around your neck for warmth.
This beautiful and lightweight wood watch is perfect for warm weather. Check out my post with this amazing watch company here!
