Weekend in the City

weekend in the city

What are your plans for the weekend? The weekend is a time to change your fashion game, not forget it. A few basic staple wardrobe pieces will help you create the perfect weekend outfits for fall. Imagine outfits that are polished, casual, and comfortable.

You’ll need to start with a great pair of jeans. It was only a few years ago that I first purchased a pair of expensive jeans. I never saw the value in expensive jeans, after all, it was only denim, right? The right jeans can make you look even more fabulous than you already are. Visit a department store like Neiman Marcus or Bloomingdales and spend some time with a denim consultant. Find out what brands and shapes work with your body. When you find something that works; buy in multiples. I love Adriano Goldschmied’s Petite "The Angelina" Bootcut Jeans. The rise is perfect, they have just the right amount of stretch, and I love jeans that I can wear off the rack, without having to take them to the tailor.

A basic white shirt is a wardrobe essential. Lilly Pulitzer’s cotton Vivi top is crisp and easy to wear. You can wear it with everything and it’s easy to accessorize.

Ballet flats are comfortable for city walks. Tory Burch flats are a perfect touch to add a little flair to your jeans and shirt.

Top off your outfit with a bold duffle or trench coat. During the cooler fall and winter months, sometimes your coat is your fashion statement piece. If you’ll be sightseeing or tailgating, you may keep on your coat all day long, so choose a quality jacket or coat. The red duffle coat from Top Shop is gorgeous!

The perfect weekend bag will hold everything you need.  I'm loving my Modalu Pippa bag in Shark.  The structured bag is elegant and the pockets help keep me organized.  Be sure to read my review of the Pippa bag later this week. 

The right weekend outfit for shopping with friends, museum visits, and leisurely lunches is comfortable and chic.


Enjoy your weekend!

xoxo
