I hope you are all doing well. It’s been quite the busy couple of weeks, but I’m really excited for all of the great things coming to the blog. Stay tuned! Today I’m talking weekend wear.
When it comes to weekend wear, I really try to keep it casual. I haaaate dressing up. More often than not, you can find me in yoga capris and a tee shirt. Maybe even a hat! But, for those times when I have to run errands, or want to meet a friend for lunch, I kick it up a notch, but I don’t sacrifice comfort. This look was just that. Comfy chic! Dressy t-shirt, boyfriend jeans, comfy sandals and a great handbag.
I kept it neutral but for some pizazz added some leopard print accents as well as a bright lip (if you’re curious about the shade, it’s So Chaud by MAC). Now I normally wouldn’t wear the scarf in summer because it is blazing hot in Sacramento (100 degrees all week). But, when I go indoors, the a/c is usually cranked up, so if I’m cold, I’ve got something to keep me warm. I strongly suggest you keep one in your bag, car, wherever you have quick access to one. It’s less bulky than a jacket and can totally turn your look from drab to fab.

Do you love this bracelet as much as I do? It’s by EttaVee, out of Paris! Not Paris, Texas. Paris, France! Hand-crafted by Jessi, the name EttaVee is in honor of her two grandmas CharlesEtta & Janie Vee. Years ago her grandpa gave her a bag of her grandma’s jewelry but many of the pieces had broken over time. Instead of discarding the broken pieces, she decided to create new pieces of jewelry with them. And voila! EttaVee was born – beautiful and unique up-cycled & vintage bracelets for the world to enjoy. In addition to the jewelry line, EttaVee has recently expanded its offerings to home decor, specifically digital prints. Um, you have to check those out. I’m going to order a few for the blank walls in my living room and I think you should too. I had the pleasure of meeting Jessi a few times when we were both living in San Francisco and she is very sweet (and can sing some mean karaoke). Always happy to support other creatives!
