The Weekend Edit: An Elegant, Casual Look

Mar 15, 2018

Most chilly spring weekends, you’ll find me in jeans and a button-up or jeans and a striped tee.  I like that I can layer on other pieces to jazz up the look, but sometimes it can be a little boring.  So I went looking for a more feminine, elegant look for weekend outings.  Here’s how to recreate Anh’s perfectly pulled together look.

Top Luna Lace Top ($255) // Jeans AG Farrah High Rise ($168) // Coat London Fog Double-Bread Trench Coat ($158) // Sunglasses Quay Tortoise Cat-Eyes ($55) // Bag Botkier Lennox Crossbody ($228) // Shoes Sam Edelman Rodney Flats ($120)

I love the mix of textures in this outfit.  The lace blouse gives the look a lightness that is so feminine.  This Rebecca Taylor blouse is a lovely choice.  For something closer to the blouse in the photo, this ASOS blouse has a lovely mix of textures.  This James Caviello blouse has a much larger lace weave mixed with a cotton voile.  Plus-size?  Try this Monteau lace top.

Pair the blouse with a chic pair of jeans.  Now that I’m 35, I only want high waisted jeans.  They pull in your waist and allow you to wear shirts of any length without fear of exposure.  These AG Farrah’s are my favorite; they really shape and sculpt your body.  For a discounted pair, try this one for Nordstrom Rack.

Since we’ve already discussed trenches this week, I won’t rehash that discussion.

Complete the look with chic accessories — a leopard shoe, a red bag and a pair of cat-eye sunglasses.  I love the glamour of this Botkier bag, but for something more relaxed, try this Everlane bag.  By choosing a leopard shoe, instead of the nude one in the photo, you get a pop even after you take off your trench and bag.
