Let me start by telling you that no matter how I portray myself on my social media, I AM NOT COOL. It is super easy to make pictures seem otherwise, but in real life, I am a goofy mom who drives a mini van and tries to keep it together. It’s true that I cried when we bought the van, but then after I realized that was a sign of a huge pride issue, I decided to surrender and let it be. And every time I think I look cool, awesome, or cute…I step out the door and into my mini van, and my ego is back in check. I like to pretend the cool moms who drive cool SUVs are jealous when they see my automatic doors. Monday through Friday you can most likely catch me in my workout clothes, so the weekends is when I break out the style [insert emoji with cool shades].
I have a friend that only use to see me Monday-Friday, and one time she saw me on the weekend and was surprised.I LOOKED NORMAL. I wore normal clothes! GO ME! I have another friend who only saw me on the weekends in my “normal” clothes, and told me I was the fanciest person she knew. Well that myth was quickly debunked when she saw me during the week and realized, I too, wear my gym clothes in public all the live long day. Well now that all of that honesty is out of the way, let’s move on to my knowledge I apply on the weekends.
I am a huge fan of neutrals. And I am a real big fan of the all-black trend, as well as, the -off-the-shoulder trend. Most of my current wardrobe consists of chambray, black, white, gray, and navy. I love this because you can create an easy minimal wardrobe with neutrals, pairing them differently to create multiple outfits. So I’ve put together a fun date-night or going out outfit, incorporating both two of the latest trends: the all-black and off-the -shoulder trends. You can wear each piece multiple ways, add color if you want, or wear as I do!
Once again, I hit the jackpot at Marshalls and found these Steve Madden sling back perforated heels. Go look there first, but if you must have these and they don’t sell them at your local store, then I added a similar link at the bottom for you. Also, I bought these pants in a petite size because I wanted a cropped look. J Crew was also running a promotion, and I got a great deal on them, but I don’t foresee that happening anytime soon. They sale a similar pant at J Crew Factory you can check out. The shirt is also sold out, but I found a similar option for you. And the bag is from Italy, so sorry 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
