Weekend Style Guide

Just for kicks and giggles I decided to bring back a favorite of mine, my weekend style guides. I have always struggled with achieving the perfect casual outfit for my down time. I always feel more comfortable when dressed up and when the weekend rolls around I feel so sloppy. I love the idea of a basic white tee and jeans but I just don’t feel like myself in them. I am in desperate need of some inspiration. Usually, putting these mood boards together does the trick and jumpstarts my creativity. There is one store in particular that I am really drawn to at the moment. That store is Madewell. Have you been in lately? When putting together my research for this post, I gravitated to their casual designs. I feel that Madewell is the exact store I need to get me out of my weekend style rut. I mixed other brands in there as well and I am really excited about what I have found so far. If you too are seeking guidance, I hope this post gives you the ideas you’ve been looking for. So today, in lieu of my Weekly Finds, I have three fabulous outfits that will raise your weekend style game.

Currently Coveting: Fashionable Activewear

Ever since I’ve had my son, my life has changed for all of the obvious reasons.  One of these changes that have struggled with is my daily wardrobe. I used to wear dresses and skirts every day but that no longer suits my lifestyle.  Lately, I have found that activewear is the most comfortable thing to wear throughout the day.  Luckily for me, there are a lot of brands out there designing fitness clothes to be as fashionable as they are functional.  Now it is really easy to find cute pieces that you won’t mind being seen in outside of the gym.  For you non-moms out there, this stylish clothing has benefits to you as well.  It has become trendy as friends and co-workers have ditched the bar and instead exercise together.  Now, post workouts, a juice or acai bowl has become the new cocktail hour.  Not only are these clothes perfect for hanging out after your class, but also they’re perfect for the gym itself.  Who wants to workout in drab boring clothes?  If you’re wearing a neon shirt or colorful printed pants, it’ll only motivate you more while exercising.  Gone are the days of wearing stretched-out spandex and ratty old tee shirts; it is time to up your game.  The best part of any trend is that once it is popular, everyone starts to make it.  When you have baby and you only feel like wearing sweats, it’s really nice to have a lot of options.  I just want to get through my busy day in comfortable clothes without looking like a slob.  Since I love fashion, I want to make sure that no matter what I am wearing I feel good in it.  So, I did some research and found chic clothes perfect for running after a baby or sweating it out at the gym. Whichever you need activewear for in your life, I hope these styles inspire you.

 

Every Wednesday I post what I am currently coveting and I would love to hear from you what you’re interested in finding.  You never know, I may feature it in the future!

3 Ways to Wear Boots This Winter

Thanks to the first snowstorm of the year, the east coast has been hammered with snow.  How are the rest of you faring this winter?  When it’s this cold and snowy out, all you want to wear are a pair of warm boots.  I know what you’re thinking.  How can I possibly wear boots all of the time?  I have the answer for you.  The great thing about boots is that they are incredibly versatile.  They don’t come in fancy colors or crazy patterns.  They can blend in and add sophistication to any outfit.  When you need a professional look for work, a heeled bootie is the perfect combination to pair with a dress or skirt.  This style can also be transferred for an evening out.  If you want to dress up the look, wear a suede boot, carry a clutch, and chose dramatic baubles.  For a casual outfit for the weekend, a light hue with a chunkier heel or a flat version is the way to go.  I am a big fan of booties and I have chosen to feature them in this post because of their adaptability.  Winter can be long and tedious but there are many fabulous ways to style boots so you can stay warm and still look chic.  Here are three different outfits so you can wear boots all day every day.  How will you style your boots?

Casual Weekend Style

One thing that I struggle with on the weekends is putting together the perfect casual outfit.  I am always more confident when I am wearing a skirt or a dress, but I feel the pressure of having to tone it down and relax on my days off.  I find it difficult to come up with a casual style that won’t make me feel sloppy.  From running errands, to brunch, to watching football with friends, it’s important for me to look stylish while still taking it easy.  I also factor in the weather.  The leaves may be changing, but humid temperatures are annoyingly sticking around.  I want to wear boots, sweaters, and scarves, not shorts and sundresses.   One helpful way of getting prepared for dealing with this confusing weather is to use the weekend to come up with stylish layering options.  For this Weekend Style Guide, I have put together an ensemble that I think is the answer to my prayers.  It may look simple, but often times, the simplest outfits are the hardest to create!  What do you like to wear on the weekend?
