Guys, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret. I love the weekend. (Phew, what a relief to get that off my chest.)
But seriously folks, you have to admit that 2 full days of freedom are pretty freakin’ sweet. As someone who just recently left a career where a weekend is nothing but a myth for a job that is definitely limited to Monday-Friday, I am super appreciative of these 48 work-free hours.
I also super love the fact that dressing for the weekend means going into the part of your closet that is not really available to you the other 5 days of the week. I am lucky enough to work in a pretty casual office, but even I could not convince my boss that sneakers are proper work attire (though I am always up for a challenge…).
This outfit practically screams weekend (well ok, it breezily mentions it as it sips an iced coffee, no one screams on the weekend), and I’m diggin’ it. But if I had to pick a favorite part, it would be the chambray shirt. I know, I’m with you, when I first saw that tying a shirt or jacket around your waist was coming back in style, I did a triple take and then audibly sighed. (I mean seriously, what am I, a kid running around Disneyworld with my parents trying not to lose my sweatshirt? C’mon!) I don’t know what happened, but suddenly my passionate stance completely flipped. I love the way that adding that tied shirt at the waist instantly makes your look more casual, plus it adds an extra pop of color or texture in a way that is so much more laid-back than a belt. I dunno what to say, I guess this is one fashion wave I got swept up in. Though I will make a promise to you right here right now. I don’t care how “in” they become, if anyone ever asks me to wear a fanny pack, I will slap them in the face (pretty sure the law has my back on that one).
PS-I know we’re all about fashion here at FBC, but I just have to share this amazing find with all of my favorite internet buddies. Up until recently, I never wore lipstick because I could never put it on without looking like I got into Mommy’s make-up drawer (to be fair, I did have a make-up artist once say to me, and I quote, “Why are your lips so weird?”. That could have something to do with it…). It wasn’t until I found this fantastic lipstick line in the drugstore of all places that I finally felt confident enough to wear lipstick in public. It’s Revlon Colorburst, and it’s basically a crayon for your lips. It is seriously foolproof, which is my #1 lipstick requirement. It comes in everything from balm to stain and in every color. I know Jess shares my love for it, and Emily, we’re coming for you. Try it, love it, buy me another one as a thank you!
(We were not compensated in any way for this PS, it’s just my opinion and when I think something is awesome, I want others to know!)
