We were expecting a lot of rain this weekend and had planned on indoor projects, but it actually turned out quite nice!
Saturday I wore this out for breakfast, then later to play with my sis's kitty while she's out of town followed by the grocery store for dinner fixins. In between we took advantage of the good weather and tackled trimming back our very large and dense Japanese maple, and I also clipped various flowers from the garden to arrange inside later in the evening. For that I just popped on a hoodie and some gardening shoes. I usually wear my BF jeans on the weekend specifically because I can easily swap out the top/shoes as needed; I like these pants too much to garden in them though I risked it this time ^^ Sunday I wore this outfit again for a visit to a nearby quirky furnishings boutique (we got a great toile+houndstooth armchair and a pair of small crystal decanters) and then a quick run to the grocery store.
I feel like I'm finally starting to get a good handle on the types of stylistic adjustments I need for happiness AND functionality in weekend outfits. Even though my life is pretty casual, as much as I'd like to just use my usual stuff in weekend outfits I have come to realize that I need a separate truly casual capsule for daily weekend life, especially in spring/summer. I'm not a capsule gal but this is something I think would really help give me good peace of mind so hopefully I can get a good base capsule together this season. I'll write more thoughts on this soon in a separate post.
This outfit is a pretty good representation of what I'm after. Simple, but still interesting in that there are no duplicated colors. Plus a bunch of cream! The tank is actually a very dark navy, I just accidentally overexposed. I also pulled out an old favorite better-than-nude peach lipstick that's full of little gold sparklies, which added just enough glam for me. Hubby felt this was a little too baggy all over, but didn't dislike it. Hey, that's a win in my book :)
