It’s the Weekend, Tie One On!

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!

I’m wearing the Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Crush above, and the Lacquer Balm in Provocateur here.

(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!)
