HOW TO LOOK CASUAL AND CHIC FOR THE WEEKEND
It is the weekend, and we have survived almost a whole week with my daughter living with us. She is so much fun to have around, and I love her being here. We are starting to go to the gym each morning, so she has already incorporated one good habit for me. Hopefully, she will be able to keep me on track…I tend to derail pretty quickly.
She brought her cat, Thomas, with her when she flew in. Tom is gorgeous (photo below), but he is also a cat you will never see if you come to visit me. The most you will see will be a streak of fur as he runs through the room. He lived with me for a couple of months, and I had hopes that he would remember us.
When we got to Abingdon, she took him upstairs and let him out of his kennel. I gave him about an hour to settle down, and then I went upstairs to see if he would let me pet him. I knew he was hiding, and I found him under a chair. The chair had a dust skirt around it, so he felt safe under there. I raised the skirt and called for him. He came right out and let me pet him to my surprise and delight. I even picked him up to love on him, and he was fine.
After I left and went downstairs, Tom decided to explore his new house. I was in my bedroom putting on makeup when I heard him coming. He walked into the room, looked at Lucy Lu and me, then turned and walked out to continue his exploration. Lucy looked at me like, “wait…what was that?” Lucy then went to see if she could find Tom; evidently, they remembered each other because neither cared that the other was walking around. It looks like everyone is off to a great start getting settled.
I wear a lot of sweaters and t-shirts with jeans on Saturdays. That is my go-to casual style, but I wanted to step up my game today and look casual and chic. Instead of adding only a t-shirt, I added a graphic tee for interest and a bright red blazer to up my chic factor. This lips tee reminds me of a Rolling Stones tee, but this one is more feminine. Unfortunately, the tee is already sold out, but there are some similar ones that I think you will like.
I’ve been trying to share “what I have on order” with you, and I hope you take advantage of those. This is the second outfit that I was going to show today, and items are already sold out. It is frustrating for me and you both, so I’ll be sure to continue sharing what I’ve got on order.
I wanted to play up the red on the lips, so I added this notch collar blazer. I’ve had this blazer for a couple of years; it is a classic that I wear all the time. This was one that I bought during Talbots Red Hanger Sale, and it is no longer on the website. Any time I can find a classic item on sale, I’ll take advantage of it.
Here is another red blazer that I wear a lot, but it is shorter in length. I love this blazer, and I also have it in white and bright blue. (see below) This is a medium-weight knit jacket that looks polished and chic. I have two different sizes in these blazers since I am between sizes. I think the large white one fits great and the medium red one fits more fitted. I’m not sure which I like best.
I’m wearing a large blazer in this photo.
I styled these jeans the other day on my Hit or Miss post. It was fun to see who loved the jeans and who hated them. Once again, this is all a fashion choice preference. These are NOT cheap or crappy, and wearing them does NOT mean that I have no class or style. Also, wearing them does NOT mean that you have class or are stylish; it DOES mean that you made a fashion choice that you liked and that you are aware of the current trends. You should never make character judgments based on fashion choices.
Since these jeans are not available online, I’ll link to other jeans styles that you might like.
Here are a couple of pairs that would give you the same look. Click on the photo to go to the website.
