STYLED / 12
most Saturdays involve sleeping in/lounging around the house until the last possible second before i have to leave when i’ll throw something on and run out the door to breakfast/errands/shopping/farm’s market, etc. i pride myself on being able to get ready in a flash, throw something over my head, add sunglasses and/or a hat and out the door. but, my entire ability to get ready quickly falls on my wardrobe. i’ve armed my closet with easy pieces, that require very little thought but that look pulled together and pair well with street shoes (sneakers, flat sandals, etc). the requirements are to be day appropriate, not too tight/structure or fussy, cotton is preferable as it’s durable and breathable and generally something simple with a bit of flare. check out the below if you find yourself at a loss for what to wear on the weekends (other than pajamas). also, tell me a recent purchase you’ve loved or a new brand you discovered. i’m always on the hunt! – joanie
– & Other Stories palm print sundress ($95) – effortlessly cool, not too short and totally day appropriate.
– Natalie Martin wrap dress ($313) – her dresses are an investment (one i have yet to make) but i know girls who own her dresses and wear them all the time and they always look fresh and romantic. they are 70’s inspired without being too retro.
– LACAUSA sky dress ($80) – one of my favorite Los Angeles based brands for both her ethical practices and chic wearable pieces. i have several of her dresses and find myself reaching for them often. they are simple but her cuts are spot on. she always makes the perfect t-shirt.
– Ace & Jig Harbour dress ($240) – i own only one Ace & Jig dress but i wear it all of the time. the quality of their fabrics is hard to beat, 100% cotton, print prints and colors and really the perfect vacation dress.
– Free People two piece set ($148) – again with the 100% cotton and i love that it’s a two piece set and both items can be worn together or separately. it’s chic and comfortable.
– Zara knotted trousers ($40) – sometimes you just need a cool pair of pants to pair with the pile of t-shirts you have in your closet. i like that these are made of polyester because that means they are practically indestructible and can withstand a lot of wear and wash.
– TOMS maxi dress ($85) – cotton, colorful, not too fitted, day time appropriate – this one checks all of the boxes.
– Zara jumpsuit ($50) – people often remark that jumpsuits are not flattering to which i say, not everything has to be flattering. maybe it’s just me but i don’t like thinking about everything i wear as needing to be flattering. wear what makes you happy and if you’ve been waiting to give jumpsuits a try now is the time.
– Free People jumpsuit ($98) – this is a jumpsuit but it’ll read as more of dress because of the wide leg. get it in the red if you’re feeling bold or black for something more tame.
