Weekend Style: Back to Basics

Weekend Style: Back to Basics
Full disclosure: Sometimes I get overwhelmed by my closet… When this happens, I find it is best to go back to the basics. A great straight leg jean, white Tee, a black topper (coat, blazer, leather jacket), and pumps. So this weekend, when you don’t know what to wear, take a cue from Jamie Chung, who is killing it in her basics. Have a great weekend!

1 piece, 3 ways: Gold Brogues

1 piece, 3 ways: Gold oxford flats

I’ve been lusting over metallic brogues recently. The dressed up flat is a great option for those who prefer to leave the heels at home. There are about a million ways to wear these metallic gold oxfords, but here are three of my favorites! The first look would make for a cute and casual date night outfit. Silk floral shorts are the modern version of a skirt. Pair them with a blouse and a leather jacket and you are ready for dinner and a movie! For the second look, the gold brogues are a fun accent piece to a basic jeans and sweater ensemble. Wear this on a shopping trip or for lunch with friends. The last look combines a modern shirtdress with the trendy flats. Add a cool, studded belt for shape, and you are ready to hit happy hour. What do you say? Are gold brogues for you?


1 Piece, 3 Ways: Floral Jeans

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Floral Jeans
My friend’s recent purchase of floral jeans and her subsequent inquiry on how to wear them inspired this post. Floral jeans are ubiquitous right now, so if you catch the craze here are 3 ways you can style yours! The first look is a twist on the denim-on-denim look. Pair a chambray shirt and a scarf with your floral jeans for an updated casual look. The second look is more appropriate for a night out. A sheer white blouse and amazing nude wedges pair perfectly with the printed jeans. Add a collar necklace and a studded clutch to toughen up the otherwise soft look. For the last look, I embraced the pastel trend with a soft pink sweater and pretty gold accents. Which look will you be trying?
