Los Angeles, CA.
Whether your weekend plans are nonexistent, you have a list of errands that is now so long you’re beginning to think it deserves its own file cabinet, or you’ve got nothing but friends to catch up with and adventures to take part in, it’s important to break free from the confines of your typical workweek getup and treat yourself to a casual dress-down day because let’s face it, heels just don’t make sense all the time!
Casual does not necessarily mean frumpy. There are plenty of ways to dress up an otherwise basic look. In college, I made the mistake of confusing the two. I’d pair a baseball cap with an oversized tee and sweatpants and call that “casual”. It got so bad that my best friend used to say, “Oh god you’re wearing a hat, I better watch out!” Now, as funny as it was to see me brave the outdoors dressed for bed, I have since discovered that there are wonderful ways to make this look more polished, public-worthy, and heck even cute!
This is definitely my weekend casual outfit! I paired a comfy striped Joan Vass long sleeve tee from Marshalls with a pair of my favorite denim shorts and Oxfords. The colors balance well with the simple jewelry I’ve added and I covered my messy hair with my favorite Red Sox hat. What does your weekend wear consist of?
