WHAT I WISH I WORE THIS WEEKEND

Details: Goodnight Macaroon ‘Riley’ Chambray Off the Shoulder Top, here  | Banana Republic white wide leg pants, similar here and here |

This weekend was your average weekend in New England in May–unpredictable. Friday night was beautiful and ended with a rainbow across the shoreline’s sky. Saturday was blissfully sunny with a comfortable breeze and Sunday was eh. It was hot and cold–literally. Nonetheless, it was a beautiful weekend filled with family, wine and lots of laughs. I was planning on donning my chambray off-the-shoulder top with these Banana Republic white wide leg pants. But like my dad always says: “we make plans and God laughs.” So, I resorted to a look that was much more well-suited to the weather. It doesn’t mean I love this outfit any less. I’ll just save it for a brighter day. I really love this top because it’s one of those comfortable OTS tops; it doesn’t slip off my shoulders and it’s a great length, not too short, not too long. I recently purchased these wide leg pants from Banana Republic and not only are they comfortable, but they’re so easy to wear. They look super sophisticated (and believe me, they are), but the material is practical and comfortable. It’s a cotton mix, making it a casual option that you can bring to the next level or wear with a laid back tee–the options are endless. I had all of these outfits I was wishing to wear this weekend, but I guess I jumped the gun a bit. Just because it’s the first weekend of summer to us, doesn’t mean Mother Nature agrees.

Going to work after a long weekend is the ABSOLUTE worst. Fortunately, I have something to day dream about since my weekend consisted of  a beach breeze, hot dogs and wine. I mentioned in my last post that  I’ve been super stressed lately, there are decisions to be made and so much to get into place that it’s hard to enjoy all of the beauty in my life. Sometimes you need to just vent and talk it out and that’s exactly what I was able to do this weekend, as a result I’m feeling refreshed and at ease. So to complement those new found feelings I decided to take it to my wardrobe with this Pure Jill ombre kimono. The ocean hues coupled with its woven linen material makes it exceptionally breezy and relaxed. With something so comfortable it as a no brainer to pair it with boyfriend jeans, they’re right up there on my comfort scale next to yoga pants. And we can’t deny that a cute and easy shoe is hard to come by; it’s true, these Franco Sarto taupe flats have stolen my heart this summer I haven’t been able to wear anything else.

Now, let the day dreaming begin–Happy Tuesday!
