What I wear most weekends

I absolutely love getting dressed up for work, but when it comes to the weekend I am all about being comfortable. Especially because I have two kids in tow! Funny enough, I bought these jeans while I was pregnant and they’re still my favorite. Only difference now is that I can actually button them up! Add a white tee and the most comfortable kicks ever and I’m all set to conquer the weekend.

Shoes: Steve Madden // Jeans: Levi’s, similar // Tee: JCrew // Purse: Tory Burch // Sunglasses: Maui Jim // Watch: Michele

My favorite blazers

Living in southern California, I don’t get the chance to wear cozy jackets that often. That means I love a good blazer to throw over anything and everything. My favorite blazer is a longer length, a (very) slightly boxy fit with fitted arms. A second runner up is a sharp, fitted blazer that can make every outfit look more sophisticated. Because it’s that time of year again, here’s a roundup of my current favorites…

 

 

 

 

 

Structured

Starting off the week with an outfit that makes me feel confident and powerful. I love an (almost) monochromatic look and a strong belt to pull it all together. These heels are the perfect neutral shade for fall and I know I will be pairing them with so many things. They’re 40% off today — use code “FRIENDS”. And I absolutely love this tailored vest. Although it’s from a few years ago, I had a hard time figuring out how to incorporate it into my wardrobe. Do I button it or leave it unbottoned? What do I wear under it? I think I finally figured it out, and I love the outcome!

Current favorites

I love to indulge in a few items that make me feel good. And that isn’t always a great pair of shoes or a yummy treat from a local bakery. Instead, I love a few things for my home and skin that smell good and act as a ritual before bedtime. This oil is my all time favorite. The scent is subtle, but yummy enough to use before bed. I love to spray it on my hands and work it into my cuticles and it leaves a satiny sheen on the skin. It’s equally as good in your hair especially if it tends to be dry. I also use this lotion on my hands, arms, elbows, knees and feet before bed. It smells really fresh and is super thick and moisturizing without being too oily. When I’m finally ready for bed, I always wear this eye mask. It’s so comfortable and doesn’t let any light in. And I recently added this diffuser to my home (my first one!) and it adds the perfect blend of husk and sandalwood to the house.

Cardigan weather

I admit it, I’m happy to feel these cooler temperatures. I’m a sucker for cashmere sweaters and this cashmere blend cardigan is no exception. I love the cutout details along the sleeves and back and the length is perfect.

It’s a busy week this week; my daughter turns four (!) and I have lots of birthday party planning to do.

Hope you’re having a good one and thanks for stopping by!

 

 

 

Weekly uniform

When I’m really organized, I plan my outfits for the week. And even as a fashion blogger, I sometimes lack creativity and feel like I have nothing to wear. The best cure for this is to browse Pinterest and other blogs. I also love buying InStyle magazine because they put together different outfits (much like this post) and I always found it so inspirational. I hope this helps you plan your M-F outfits to get you through the week feeling good and confident!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keeping it simple

What is it about the September month that makes it so hard to get dressed? It’s cooler in the morning and evenings but still pretty warm during the day. I find myself feeling uninspired by my closet and ready for a real change in weather. In the meantime, I’m leaning on outfits like this: sleek, streamlined, monochromatic and comfortable.
