Transitional Weekend Style

This post is sponsored by Zappos.

After what seems like an everlasting summer, I got the first hint of Fall the other day. I am beyond ready for light, transitional layers and going back to some of my go-to pieces like wool hats and boyfriend jeans.

OUTFIT FORMULA:

BLACK SWEATER + BOYFRIEND JEANS + BLACK FLATS + BLACK BELT + COGNAC BAG + GOLD NECKLACE + GOLD WATCH

This look is perfect for a coffee run on the weekends, a casual work from home day or a casual dinner date.

I always like to pair black with a lighter or mid-rinse denim and lighter neutrals like white and cream with dark rinses.

As a follower on Instagram, your feed is most likely 99% #Nsale picks from bloggers. @Liketoknow.it links, blog posts, tweets of their favorite items, etc.

This year, I’m taking a hard pass. Even as a blogger, I am so sick of it all. It’s beyond overkill. For those of you who didn’t know, whenever you shop through those links, bloggers make money. Blogging has become more about the commission checks than the content itself and I hate that more than anything.

Tailored Shorts

Even in the heat of a Midwest summer, I still prefer polish to being “comfortable”. There are two things I use to my summer looks easy and effortless while looking put together: breezy blouses and tailored shorts. They both can survive even the hottest of days while keeping my typical style in tact.

You may have noticed that 90% of my shorts I wear are high waisted. Call it a day dream or call it aging, but super low waisted shorts come off looking very immature most of the time in my opinion. The high-waisted pairs that have a great fit and an elevated material have almost a nostalgic feel to them,
