Mastering Weekend Casual

I’m in comfy clothes 90% of the time, but nothing beats a great weekend casual look.

The weekend is finally here and I am more than ecstatic. After having a busy week back to work after TBS Con, I am welcoming this weekend with open freakin’ arms and ready to get my drink on (*takes a drink as I write this*).

As much as I live for the weekends, I *struggle* when it comes to getting dressed and finding a functional outfit. I mean, how do you get dressed in the morning for the entire day of errands, activities, and a night out!? IT’S H-A-R-D. But then I discovered weekend casual and I am all for it.

So weekend casual – I’m not chic enough to be wearing pumps to the grocery store, I’m more of an “elevated” comfy casual and try to keep my shoes as flat as possible. Are you the same way? Here’s how I master weekend casual.

Later, Layer, Layer

Let’s face it: if you’re out all day, you’re going to experience alllllll the temps. The morning might be cool, afternoon hot and sunny, then the temperatures drop once the sun goes down. And don’t even get me started about the crazy difference in temperature once you step inside a store. It’s like they’re trying to get your lady bits to freeze off (smh).

Take Risks

Since I work in an casual office setting, I typically just throw in a t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers for work. Once the weekend rolls around, I actually think about what I’m going to wear that day.

If you’re like this, too, or even if you work in an office where the dress code is corporate and you don’t have the opportunity to let your personality shine through, here’s your chance! Try pattern mixing or pairing two unlikely colors together.

Think Elevated Casual

When the weekend rolls around your main focus is to be comfortable (le duhhhh). Mix casual pieces with dressier pieces and vice versa. My favorite way to do this? Try pairing a comfy pair of boyfriend jeans with a fun pair of heels or a gorgeous dress with trendy sneakers!
