Some casual weekend outfits from this past weekend and the one before. I have been enjoying wearing my jeans less during the week for creative-casual work outfits, but for my weekend life jeans just can't be beat. In particular the straight leg jeans in #1, which normally get passed over, have found new life in my weekend outfits. My loafers are also becoming a serious go-to weekend shoe with all the wet weather we've had.
- Saturday 06.09, worn to run errands and out to a pub for dinner with hubby and sister. My gingham tops have definitely found their way out of my work wardrobe and into purely casual weekend outfits. Normally I like to wear a contrasting or fun colored belt in outfits like this, but was in the mood to match so I went with yellow. Rugged boots to finish the look off. Love the emerald with the yellow and white!
- Saturday 06.16, worn to run errands. New lightweight coral jacket purchased earlier in the week; for this outfit I tied the belt in the back but I do plan to also wear it buttoned and belted. I am very happy to have a non-blazer casual jacket (I have SO few) in a cheerful color. Speaking of, the color is interesting: it's like a coral-salmon hybrid that's very saturated but is absolutely "soft" looking without being muted. I haven't seen anything like it this season!
- Sunday 06.17, worn to breakfast then Father's day dinner at my folks'. I wanted a menswear inspired look for the occasion, but didn't want to wear a plain button-up because my husband was doing that :) So instead I layered a semi-cropped sweater over my chambray shirt and donned loafers. The rest of the outfit is pretty feminine (skinnes, purse, necklace) so the menswear effect ended up being rather subtle.
