Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a great weekend! Today’s post is my casual friday outfit from last week. Typically, when I don’t have to get dressed up, I’m a jeans and tee kind of girl. My weekend wear is pretty relaxed most of the time, although I tend to wear a lot of dresses during the summer because they’re so easy to throw on, and dresses are definitely more comfortable than skinny jeans in the hot weather. As much as I’d love to throw on a pair of boyfriend jeans or distressed jeans on a Friday, it’s not a professional look for an office job. Enter: white denim. Incredibly versatile in that it matches everything, and can easily be dressed up or worn casually, I have a few pairs of white denim that I like to wear on casual Fridays, or other professional events where I want to look nice but not overdressed, or the opposite. Luckily we’re allowed to wear sandals to work as long as they’re not “beach sandals,” so I paired my denim this week with a cute pair of studded leather Sam Edelman sandals (so comfortable!). Since I normally keep things simple, I wanted to switch things up and top off my look (literally) with a really fun geometric print top! I loved the colors of this top, and the olive-green and orange make it wearable through the fall as well!
Remember those Magic Eye books that were so popular 20 years ago or so? I loved those books. I could get a whole stack of those books and just geek out for a few hours. So when I saw the print of this dress, it immediately brought me back. The kaleidoscope print is super fun, and I love the color combination. While I styled this dress casually, you could swap out the denim jacket for a black blazer, and the flat sandals for a pair of heeled sandals, for a night-time look. To top off the dressy look, you could add a bright red nail or lip color!
I hope you’re all having a great week :) Today’s look is a simple, monochrome look with metallic accents. There are so few months in New York that we can get away with wearing an all-white ensemble, and I think there’s something very chic about a single tone look. Wearing one color also allows you to have fun with accessories! While it would have been cute to add a pop of color with a handbag, I decided to wear my everyday A&R bag to blend with the look, and let my heels and sunnies take the stage. Although I added a statement necklace and ring, the classic white pearls and pale sage green remained subtle against the white palette.
Today I’m sharing with you my favorite maxi dress this summer! Although it’s not brightly colored, it’s so easy to dress up with pops of color. The fabric is the perfect weight — not sheer but also not too heavy, and falls beautifully! You can easily wear this dress with simple sandals, delicate jewelry, and a sun hat for a more relaxed, daytime look; or, add a pair of embellished sandals or heeled sandals, and bold jewelry for a nighttime look. Versatile pieces are key for any season!
